Convention Part 4 - Card ideas on display

One of the best of many things about Convention are the demonstrations of cards and projects up on stage.
The demonstrations are mainly done by Stampin up staff :
On Friday morning Shannon West gave us a demo on using the Circle Scissor Plus tool.
She showed us 12 amazing cards to make using circles of cardstock.
There  was a spiral star card and this gorgous heart card that folds into its own envelope. Lolly bag toppers, Princess tiaras, Lady Beetle cards, Foot balls, Male shirt and tie cards and her December circle card had a half circle pocket to hold a CD.
I might have to make this one to send people photos on CDs in.
She also made this really simple punched bird card which I think she was giving out as swaps.
Isnt it perfect in Orchid opulence and Rich Razzleberry.
Bonnie Thurber is just an amazing presenter:
She showed us how to tie a neat knot/bow with ribbon.
She calls it her lazy sister knot - I'll explain later.

Bonnie showed us how to make these gorgous masked Tea cup cards and a little box to put them in. Plus demoed the new kraft cardstock cards (forgotten their name) they are similar to the fresh cut notes we still have. There in the picture above and a cute little bag to put them in too.
Then we got to see the new Big Shot machine in action with the histerically funny Pam Morgan.
She made some gorgous items. Did you know you can cut fabric with this tool?
You can cut up to 8 pieces of fabric at a time. It will cut through nearly anything cardstock and fabric related.
She demoed how to make the Plexi glass sandwhich ... which makes the yummiest projects.
Imagine even quilters will be able to get in on the act and cut out designs....
Can you see this tool on your sewing or crafting table?
My absolute favourite demonstration though was Shelli Gardner's.
She has a gorgous Vintage style and made a heap of projects up on stage.
Then afterwards they are placed up on the display boards outside for everyone to share.
You can click on any of these pictures to enlarge the photo for a closer look.
Enjoy every Moment!!!
