Convention - Part 5

It was my first experience of Convention this year and it certainly lived up to my expectations and I shall certainly be returning next year.
 
Stampin' Up! invited all demonstrators, whether you attended convention or not, to submit an entry for the Design Contest.  You are invited to submit a card or 3d item to be judged against your fellow demonstrators.  I was not originally going to enter the competition but I decided to give it a go anyway.  Unfortunately I wasn't fortunate enough to win any prizes (which was no surprise when you see some of the items below!) but I thoroughly enjoyed taking part.
 
So, here is my entry...
 

The box is a three sided triangle, each with three houses on the outside, it then opens up...
 
 
 To reveal yet more houses and a Christmas tree.  And here is a close up of the tree.

 
The winner of the English prize made this amazing carriage.  The picture doesn't do it justice but it was fab.
 
 
 And here are some of the other 3d entries.
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
As you can see, competition was fierce but it is the taking part and I already have some fabby ideas going through my head for next year.
 
Here are a few of the card entries.
 
 
 
 
 
I will be back tomorrow with some card candy.

  2. I would have voted for your entry too! Your stuff always stands out a mile to me. But then I am a proud owner of a 3d car in a box as my fab wedding gift from you. I see your entry also got picked up in the US and featured in a post. Well done - bet you're chuffed!! :) xxx

  4. do you happen to have directions for your wonderful triangle box? I love this and agree with some of the other commenters that it SHOULD have won. It is really nice! What is the top piece that holds it all together? What are the dimensions? I love this!!!

  7. I agree with the others. Your box should have won. It's gorgeous! I have the same question as the others, do you have instructions or a tutorial that would show me how to make this lovely work of art? I see you haven't replied to anyone so unsure. If there is a charge, let me know. I will gladly pay it. Thank you.

  8. I too love this and agree it should have won. I'd love to have the measurements so I can try to replicate it.

  9. I came here hunting down the designer of the beautiful explosion box, not the others. They were all wonderful, but not as exceptional and inventive as yours.

  17. Have you since loaded a tutorial anywhere on your blog? Your card was far more tasteful and exciting than any of the other entrants.
