Evening crafters

Following on my long weekend here in Brussels for the Stampin' Up! European Convention, I had some exciting news yesterday.

Demonstrators had been invited to submit entries for a Convention Design contest, to be displayed on inspiration boards & tables, sharing creative ideas with fellow Independent Demonstrators over the weekend. 

Having spent a lovely weekend with Julie, one of my Downlines, just before the closing date, she had taught me how she made her beautiful 'cake in a box'.   With a display contest prize offered and both of us up for a challenge, we stayed up till the early hours both Friday and Saturday evenings, planning and designing how we could make a similar Christmas cake themed project using Stampin' Up! products, entering the competition in joint names. 

Yesterday lunchtime, we were finally allowed into the Demo resource centre to view displays of many items that had been demonstrated on stage in the morning, together with display boards with many items made by fellow Demonstrators, with stamp sets, especially for Convention. 

I was so pleased to see that Julie and I had been awarded Runners Up prize from all the UK entries, with £50 to be spent between us on Stampin' Up! products. It was well worth our combined efforts and very late nights crafting.

This was so much fun to create, getting carried away bouncing ideas of each other.   I hope you enjoy this project as much as we did designing it.  Lots of the intricate details don't show very well in these photos but I hope to transfer some more photos off my camera when I get home. 

Pop back soon for more updates from Convention. 

Happy craftin'
