Stampin' Up! Melbourne Heartfelt Event

On Saturday 4th August, I attended the Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Event held at the Melbourne Convention Centre. It was such a fantastic day! I got to not only meet up with my fellow Stampin’ Up! Demos, but also got to share the experience with my friends & customers. It was a relaxed, "choose your own experience" type of event that allowed everyone to try some of the amazing Stampin' Up! Tools & new products coming out in the 2012-2013 catalogue and brand new Holiday Mini. There were mirrored demo booths where you could watch skilled Demos showing you workshop ideas, flower making and 3D items.

Tables were set up with tools to try and stamps and ink pads to stamp with.  The air was scented with spice and peppermint embossing powders being tested.  Everywhere you turned there was something interesting going on!   There were display boards where all attendees could display a project they had made and also displays by other demos.

There were tables set up to create your 4 make and takes with your free stamp set and to enjoy your lunch that was all provided.

On top of all this there were structured sessions in a separate area where you could watch some fantastic presentations on gift wrapping by Simone Bartrum & heartfelt cards with Janine Rawlins.  We also got to see some great Holiday decorating ideas by the talented SU staff member Sophie Zadeh and Pam Jorgensen inspired us with her gift giving ideas.

We all got to make a Christmas decoration with a new stamp set and matching framelit and a special new ink pad.   We then got to write a special message to SU and hang it on the Christmas tree on display and take a special gift from under the tree! Thanks SU for all that you did to provide an inspirational creative day.  I had such a wonderful time and loved every minute of it.
