OnStage Sydney - Stampin' Up! 30th Anniversary 2018.

Hello lovely friends!
The breathtaking view from our Hotel room!

Today I thought I would share some images with you all, from my recent trip to Sydney for Stampin' Up!'s OnStage convention at Luna Park. It was an absolutely fantastic day and the atmosphere was simply buzzing with excitement! In fact, I think I'm still buzzing!
From the sample boards to swapping, the delicious lunch to our yummy afternoon-tea cupcake, onstage demonstrations, the NEW catalogue launch, training, product spotlight, recognition, make-and-takes, etc, etc, etc, it was a "jam-packed" event! 


When we arrived at check-in, this was the gorgeous bag we received!

And the "goodies" kept coming!
These are just a few of the wonderful items we all received. Of course sharing the day with one of my lovely downlines, (her first OnStage event), and equally lovely fellow team member, were highlights for me.

Here we are having our photo taken together.

Our gorgeous CEO Sara. (I think I make her look taller!) đŸ˜‰

As I mentioned earlier, a lot of demonstrators make swaps. I made 20 of these and received some lovely swaps in return. 

I thought I would share the measurements with you all.

Well that's it from me today friends, I hope you have enjoyed the photos I've shared here. If you would like to know more about Stampin' Up!

Elegant Easter with Sale-A-Bration Springtime Foils.

Hello friends and welcome, I hope you have had a lovely Sunday.

Tonight I'm sharing my Easter Class projects with you all. 

Sale-A-Bration finishes on March 31st, so if you're placing an order for $90 AUD (before postage costs) this week, you could choose this gorgeous paper as your FREE Sale-A-Bration item!

Sale-A-Bration Springtime Foils Specialty DSP.

This is just the most beautiful paper! There are 4 single-sided designs in Gold, Rose Gold and Silver foil, and you receive 3 sheets of each.

Now, onto the projects!

In our first class we made two gift boxes, and a gift card using the Narrow Note Cards from the Occasions Catalogue.
The bunny box was made using the Lots to Love Box Framelits dies. I found this idea on Pinterest. I really love the versatility of our dies and all of the great ideas out there on the web. The box in front holds 5 mini easter eggs but you could use this little tube for any occasion gift giving. Lastly, the sweet note card is the perfect size to add to your easter gifts. 
The bunny stamp is from 'A Good Day' stamp set and the Happy Easter greeting is from 'Sweet Little Something'. Both of these sets are from the Occasions Catalogue.

I have used Chocolate Chip ink for the stamping and copper accents of our foil and 1/4" copper trim. Other embellishments are basic pearls, faceted gold gems and some retired Whisper White ribbon.

These are the projects for my next class this coming Tuesday. Here we have two milk carton gift boxes and another narrow note card. I have chosen a different design from the Springtime Foils this time, and silver is the dominant colour. The bunny and greeting is stamped in Smoky Slate and the greeting is from 'Teeny Tiny Sentiments' in the Annual Catalogue. To close the larger box I've used the lovely silver metallic-edge ribbon and some more of the retired ribbon on the smaller one. Silver rhinestones and faceted gems finish off the decorating.

Well I hope you have enjoyed seeing these projects, please let me know if you have any questions about them. Below is a list of all supplies and products I have used to create them.

I'll look forward to sharing more projects with you again soon.

Until next time...
Stay happy & stay crafty! đŸ˜˜
