The Melbourne Stitches & Craft Show 2017

This weekend I am lucky enough to be apart of the Stampin' Dream Team at The Stitches & Craft Show.

We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators who have some together for the purpose of the Show where we showcase various  kits. Obviously the kits have been made using various SU! products & include all the pieces to make a complete card or 3D item.

They have all been greatly received & we heard many positive comments about our kits, the display & the way our team worked together! It's always a bonus to know that our customers are happy with us!

During the show, we have a great special available. When you purchase the 27 Blend Markers with the Colour Me Happy card kit from me, (RRP $267.76), you will also receive FREE a packet of Thick Whisper White cardstock & a FREE Momento Inkpad! 

These additional items means you can get colouring quicker, there are so many more opportunities for you to play!!

You will also have $25 to spend on anything in the catalogue - YES anything!!

 I was reminded today, during the show of how lovely the simple act of giving someone something handmade is such a beautiful thing. A gentleman bought a particular kit for his wife, from me, to celebrate their 43rd Wedding Anniversary. He was so happy to have found something to make for her, 'this will finish my gift for her beautifully,' he said proudly.

How wonderful is that act of love? Im all warm 'n fuzzy, I tell ya!

Until next time, keep Stampin'...

OnStage 2017 - Melbourne, Australia

Today I am revelling in the aftermath of what was Stampin' Up! yearly event OnStage for this year...

This is a SU! worldwide event, organised in many countries around the world, using videos & live presentations for current SU! demonstrators. It is a wonderful day where we are spoilt with seeing new product releases, new catalogues & the odd Prize Patrol give away - a definite time to get excited!!

During the leadup to this amazing day, many of us prepare swaps. As the name suggests, we make cards, 3D items or Off The Page (OTP) items using current products. We then swap our items with other, (who have slaved away until stupid o'clock during the week!!). This gives us fantastic inspiration to make more cards, work out how to make 'that' 3D item and even push our boundaries by trying products that we wouldn't usually or are too unsure too.

I always like to make something other than a traditional card, simple so that I am using the products in a different way. I feel this makes the product more versatile, if it can be used on a variety of mediums, therefore being more cost effective, obviously.

So this year I have made earrings, using the Half Full stamp set.
 I used the SU! Window Sheets, Black Archival, Cherry Cobbler & So Saffron Inks, Cherry .Cobbler & Whisper White cardstock.

The 'wine' was made using the glue from the Fine Tip Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds & Cherry Cobbler re-inker, (this is the small bottle of ink, added like food colouring). The hardest part was making sure the 'wine' didn't go past the glass boundaries when I placed the top of another glass on top, making it a double wedged in between the two images...

Email me if you want more information about the particular instructions to make these...
 Of course, it would never be as incredible as it could be if Mel, my up-line, wasn't there... She has taught me so much about using various products, colour co-ordinating and all things Stampin' Up!
 I had the wonderful opportunity to dance to some groovy music with Bonnie, the American representative from the SU! office! She is such an electrifying woman, we so need more women in our world just like her!!
 This is what greeted us when we sat at our table, I just love the humour of those who prepare everything for an event like this!!
This is all that I can share with you today, after Tuesday I will share more - one of the perks of being a demonstrator is seeing the (almost) released products before everyone else!!

(If this excites you, talk to me about becoming a demonstrator - you wont be disappointed!!)

Come by later in the week - I will share some of the amazing swaps Ive received & maybe even some of the catalogue information!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
