My Convention Booth

Hello hello, how are you doing?

I was flabbergasted when Shannon West a Stampin’Up! employee in the Home Office called me at home one evening asking if i was willing to present a demo booth at Convention USA. Well you could have knocked me down with a feather :)

Of course I said YESS even though every single nerve in my body was telling me to say NOOO.

My booth and presentation had to be focused around weddings and brides and that’s what I prepared. I will share a few of the projects over the coming days.

As I write this I don’t know if I made a fool of myself or not but I will let you know for sure.

I started with a little help from my friend Sarah Berry was Makin. She is quite the wedding stationery expert :)

Here’s a sample set

Stampin'Up! wedding stationery

Pocket invitation, RSVP and various other bits of info all personalized and matching of course.

Coastal Cabana and Pumpkin Pie perfect Summer wedding combo I am sure I pinched it from pinterest :)

The stamp set is the glorious Happy Day and it is literally fabulous and soo perfect for stationery. I also used the Background Builder set and the new Sketched alphabet :)

And here’s a peek to the save the date card, it has a secret pocket at the front and a little tag is pulled to reveal the date :)

Stampin'Up! save the date

Oh yeah my pretend wedding is this weekend :)

The clay flowers was simply sponged and attached to a bit of baker’s twine. The bow on the front of the invite you can’t see in the picture but it was spritzed with vanilla smooch spray and it looks all shimmery like a piece of satin fabric :)

Chevron ribbon in Pumpkin Pie :) Oh my xx

Thank you so much for your visit hope it tickles. Hugs xxx

  11. I saw these on the board at Convention and told my friend that these would make great wedding invitations for my cousin, not knowing that they were yours. I love the fold up invitation with the rsvp and accommodation information together. I tried making one that opened to the side, but like yours much better. I am so sad that I missed your presentation. did you use the pop`n cuts card base die and where would you tuck the envelope for the RSVP ?


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment, I really apreciate it as I love hearing from you. Hugs Monica xxx
