Melbourne Regional Seminar

Yesterday over 100 Stampin' Up! demonstrators congregated at the Melbourne Convention Centre for our regional training seminar. These days are invaluable as a way to learn new techniques and business information as well as mingle with other demonstrators (usually from our own state, but often from interstate as well).

At the seminar we listened to various speakers and watched demonstrations from both local and international guests. We also got to make some projects ourselves, using stamp sets and cardstock packets which were included in our admission price. I wish I could show you what we made, but until December 1 I can't reveal the stamp set we used, because it isn't available until that date through the Summer Mini Catalogue.

So watch this space for more information on that.

Another feature of these get togethers is something that the stamping world (not just Stampin' Up!) has been doing for some time - swaps. It's not mandatory, but many demonstrators make card fronts specially to swap with other demonstrators - it is a good way to see new and different techniques and styles and to build up our sample boards and boxes so customers can see more than just the things we personally create.

I was lucky enough to swap with some very talented ladies (and one gentleman - waves to Martyn!) and would like to share a picture of the results with you.

Many thanks to (in no particular order): Felicity Gray, Gail Kirby, Janine Rawlins, Sheila Chilingsworth, Melanie Dunstan, Caville Ogden, Jo Eades, Christine Healey, Jenny Myerscough, Bron Alleyn, Nikki Holmes, Danielle Scholz, Bec Guerra, Jacinta Ryan, Bridget Larsen, Teresa Brown, Melissa Roos, Martyn Munro

There were of course many others swapping, sadly I wasn't quick enough and came home with a few of my own.

It was a great day, and a reminder about just why I do what I do - not only is it a lot of fun to create your own little works of art, it is even more fun to share it with other people who "get" the whole thing.

If you would like to join the fun, why not email me to find out more about joining my little team? We'd love to have you along!
