Stitch & Creative Crafts Show, Sandown

A huge thank you to our lovely Team Leader for spear heading operations in getting our stand ready for the show.  The stand looked amazing!

You can see how hard we had to work to produce samples for the display boards.  Many of my regulars will recognise my work.  I had such fun making up this halloween suite.  I can't take credit for the banner, but that's lush too!
Some of the stamp sets from previous Minis will be transferring its way into the next main catalogue, hence the Wisteria Wonder Mixed Bunch sets made its way to the stand.
The lovely tray cloth and oven glove were a gift to all the Vienna Incentive Trip achievers (lucky Amanda - well not so much luck - it represents a great deal of hard work too) .  I found these vinegar bottles at our local kitchen store and decorated it for a kid's party theme with the Owl Occasions set.  Funny story, the straws were too short, so I extended the straws by cutting another one and fitting it into the next straw!  The Twitterpated DSP is back, I'd made a tea dispenser with that (to the left of the bottles) so am pleased it's got a new lease of life!
The boxes were much admired - I shall be running another class on this in the not so distant future.

This was our red wall - I got to play with a lovely new scrapbook layout kit - it had sparkly snowflakes and you could hang pictures on the ribbon with mini clothes pegs!  The box with lots of little images to the bottom left of the picture is an Advent Calendar, made with the petal punch!  Watch out for a class in the future featuring this.
I love the Perfectly Preserved stamp set with co-ordinating dies to cut out the images.  The samples here were some of the ones I made for my pre-launch event for the Autumn/Winter catty.  Even the set of luggage made it's way to the stand.
Here's a closer look at the Halloween goodies.  The cello bags will be featuring in the new catty soon.  They're for putting candy in and my pail didn't escape the halloween treatement either!  I decorated the treat bags with various punches in my Stampin' Up! arsenal. 
I'd been meaning to try my hand at making a bigger candy wrapper box and it finally came together for this occasion.  There's the standard size one on the right in Lucky Limeade, but the black one is twice as long!
It was a full on 3 days, exhausting and exhilerating at the same time.  I just loved meeting new people and it was a real joy working with my fellow Stampin' Up! sisters.
Thank you to everyone who visited our stand.  We loved it and I hope you did too.
Happy stamping!
