Stamp Camp 2010
Well everyone I am back from camp and now that I have recovered from lack of sleep, thought I would let you know what went on.
Left home on Friday afternoon with the lovely Esther and headed to Swanleigh in Perth. Dropped all are craft gear at the Library had a chat with some other demos and then headed off for tea in the Dining Hall. Once we finished tea we all headed back to the library to start our first project. The lovely Sue showed us all how to make a lovely Lantern. These look just amazing and a great table piece. Once we all finished our lantern it was on to the shoebox swaps. For those of you who don't know what that means is every demo designed a card and prepped enough stock for all the other demos, so we all played musical chairs and went from swap to swap, until finally at 11.30pm some off us headed back to our rooms to get some sleep. Although once we showered and got organised we all decided to sit around and just have a chat for a while.
We all woke reasonably earlier and headed off to the dining hall once again for breakfast. Yep you guessed it back to the library for more stamping.
Today we got to make Pats accordian file and Jenny's mini scrapbook, love these and great gift ideas too. Then when we finished these we got back to playing musical chairs, (shoebox swaps) and so all in all there was lots of stamping, chatter, laughing and fun had by all over the 24 hours.
Came home with 34 swaps, 3 projects and with some great inspiration.
Here is a photo of all the demos (not all as some had gone home by this time).
Thanks for looking
