Stampin Up! European Convention 2013 Manchester

Wow, what a few days I have just had. I attended my first Stampin Up! European Convention 2013 in Manchester last Friday and Saturday.

The convention began properly on Friday but you could sign in and register early from 6.00 p.m. on Thursday evening. I travelled down with three of our team members and we all met up with some lovely ladies from my up-lines team at the convention centre in the evening

It was so great to meet up with  friends, make new ones and of course be totally inspired by wonderful projects and products.

At Convention, Team members usually do small gifts/swaps for fellow team members. There were 18 members of my uplines team who attended convention and we all decided to take part in this swap.
With going on holiday I knew I had to be organised so my swaps were made a month ago! I made two different kinds of swaps, 18 for our team members and 45  general swaps.

 Here are my general swaps all ready to be packed.

I used the winter frost and seasons of style designer series paper stacks to create these little pouches and filled them with chocolates. They were decorated with the label love and papillon potpourri stamps and co-ordinating punches. The flaps were closed with a velcro dot.

I really hope my colleagues at Convention enjoyed these swaps.

I received some really beautiful ones in return which I will post on my blog soon
