Leeds Regional Training Day and Swaps (Part 2)

I am sorry for not posting the pictures as I promised on Saturday.  I had quite a busy day yesterday so just didnt have the time.

Anyway, the Leeds Regional Training Day on Saturday was INCREDIBLE!!! 70 demonstrators in a flashy hotel frantically swapping, stroking and cooing over all the new products which are coming in the Mini Catalogue.

I cant tell you any juicy details just yet, but I cant wait to get hold of them.  As demonstrators, we get to see and can even pre-order the new products - its one of my favourate things about being a demonstrator, well that and getting freebies, and discounts and...!!!  Sorry, I am going off on a bit of a tangent arnt I?!

Here is the second swap I promised to show you.

I used the same stamp set, Sense of Time, plus the 'For You' stamp from the Fresh Cuts set.  I stamping the clock in Cajun Craze ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock, and added the 'For You' image in Not Quite Navy ink.  The bottom dial was covered in Chrystal Effects and left to dry overnight before a gold brad was put through the centre.

As there were so many swaps to do, I decided to keep this design simple so it was basically just matted and layered with the Photo Corner Punch which I used to accent the corners of the clock.

The More Mustard cardstock mat was run through my crimper (only for about 3cm) but I did like the texture. Then I stamped the sentiment and wrapped a strip of Twill Tape around the mat before securing the clock image.  Nice and simple but the colours are fab and it seemed to go down really well with everyone.
