The official opening of the show was today, and there was a big crowd in attendance.

Here is my exhibit...5 paper boxes adorned for Autumn.

Most Amazing Card Kit EVER. Day 1. Tips on how to assemble your kit. Stampin' Up! Australia

Day1 : How to begin assembly of your kit, and how to make these 5 matchbook cards.

 The 5 Matchbook cards set up ready for stamping and assembly.

 Prepping the matchbooks is much easier if you sort out ALL the pieces for each card, (I have used my dining room table to do this), as some of the pieces are similar. This was fun! It's like doing a jigsaw puzzle... satisfying in a weird kind of way LOL.  Have you snips and tape measure handy to cut the twine into different lengths.

A big Stampin' Up! Event: Onstage Local at the Sydney Hilton.

 What a day it was! One of the perks of being a demonstrator is that we get to see the upcoming products well in advance of their release to the public. This gives us a chance to plan projects and pre-order supplies for our classes and events.

Morning tea was cupcakes...delish! Stampin' Up! celebrated their 10 year anniversary in Australia.

 Product Display boards were the most popular photo opp...... a new Tin of Cards Set! I was lucky enough to win the coordinating stamp set in Prize Patrol.

 Demonstrators displayed their cards on the wall.... there are some very talented women (and men) here.

 Can't wait to get my hands on the Bear.... too adorable!
