NOVEMBER ONSTAGE REVIEW!

Well I can’t believe that it is 2 weeks since Onstage.  Seriously is someone taking time off our days??? 🙂

Since I have come back it’s been a whirlwind so while I catch my breathe very briefly I thought I would share a few highlights from Onstage.

Onstage was an incredible time in more ways than one.  It is a fun-filled, jam-packed event of inspiration and sharing and friendships.  I attended the Sydney event.  I have to tell you though a couple of months ago I received a call from Clare from Stampin’ Up! asking me to do a presentation.  Eek! After the initial “I can’t do this” and freaking out right there and then, Clare was so wonderful and coached me and encouraged me and cheered for me all the way.  It was an incredible experience.

Firstly though, How about this gorgeous backpack.  Poppies are in and they are beautiful.  This backpack has so many pockets.  I think it will be well used.  I have my lanyard too.  I am so thankful to have achieved so well this year.  Thank you to my team and my customers.  The number ‘3’ is the prize patrol badge.

Centrestage event is on the Friday night for those Silver Elite level and above.  It’s a pretty chilled night with some fancy food.  Nice to be spoilt.

The new Mini Catalogue…  How gorgeous!

(If you want a copy be sure to head -> HERE to request one to be sent to you.  Australian residents only).

Prize Patrol winner.  I was really happy to receive this set.  And yes I have already ordered the matching dies.

Below is the header for the screen before I did my presentation.  I hadn’t even noticed it.  I have to say things were a bit of a blur then.  I was honoured to present the new Dressed to Impress Suite that is coming in the new 2020 Mini Catalogue.

During my presentation.

This is the board with my samples.  It’s a bit hard to see them. I will share the projects in more detail over the next few weeks and months so be sure to check back here often.

I am thankful to Stampin’ Up! for the opportunity to present at Onstage.  It was an unforgettable experience.

Part of my presentation was talking about my ‘WHY”  Why I do what I do. I love creating and sharing my projects with others (like you).  I love seeing the joy on people’s faces when they make a card and when they receive a card,  I hope to inspire others and hopefully bring a little joy in people’s lives.

Thanks for your support for visiting me, for sharing with me and for your encouragement.  It all means so much.  I hope you can bring Joy to the lives of others too.

ONSTAGE LIVE APRIL 2019 SWAPS!

Today I wanted to share all the great Swap cards I received at the recent Onstage Live event.  Swapping is such a great way of seeing new ideas, colours and techniques.  It’s a fun way to meet other demonstrators too.

I have put together a video that I have below so you can see each one in more detail and see the sparkle and maybe learn how some of the cards were created.  So I hope you take a little time to watch it.  (It does go for about 24 minutes).  Be sure to watch until the end so you can see how you can be in the Giveaway to receive one of these card of your choice.

Here are some photos of the cards so you can save them for later reference.

Birds and Sentiments

Butterflies

Flowers

The card on the bottom left on this lot above was actually a card given to me by Kylie Bertucci which was really lovely.  I am part of her Demonstrator Training Group and she gave each of us a special card. How nice was that. 🙂

Australia V New Zealand

3D – Pockets and Folders

So what do you think? Lots of beautiful inspiration isn’t there.

ACCENTED BLOOMS IN BASIC GRAY!

I have been sharing cards with you with the Accented Blooms set.  I had a Craft Show over the weekend and I focused on this set for the Make and Take there. When I was thinking of using this set for the show it needed to be a simple card that didn’t require colouring with it as there was no time for that in the small minute that you have with people.  I came across a card by Amanda Bates with some simple stamping in Basic Gray and a POP of the Lemon Lime Twist.  So I CASED her card for it.  (Thanks Amanda 🙂 )  You can see her card -> HERE.

This is the card that everyone made.  I have to say that Kids and adults loved making this card.

It’s just a mini card 10cm x 10cm. (4″x4″).  Stamping in Basic Gray gives a little more softness to it than using a heavy black.  I liked the  Lemon Lime Twist POP.  Everyone added a Rhinestone to their card for a little bling rather than the Glitter Gems that I have added on this one.

I have another card with this set that I will share with you shortly that doesn’t require colouring.  Check in soon for that.

JOY OF SETS 2018 CATALOGUE BLOG HOP!

I am taking part in a Blog Hop today with the Facebook group – The Joy Of Sets.

You might have just come from Kirsten’s blog. (click on the arrow below to go back if you missed it or you will get there after going around the hop).

Today’s theme is a project using any product from the current 2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue.

Focusing on ANY product from this current catalogue is pretty overwhelming really.  There are so many wonderful products.  What do you choose!! After trying a few options I chose the Sitting Pretty Bundle.  I made a card set in some fun bright colours.

I used the Brights Paper stack and the co-ordinating Glitter Enamel Dots in Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana and Melon Mambo.

The lovely ornate seat is heat embossed in Copper and then cut with the Pretty Park Framelits. I added a vellum scallop circle under the seats and cut a small heart that is in the Framelits set in the matching colour.  The sentiments and the fun swirl is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set.

Here is a close-up of the Gorgeous Grape one so you can see it more clearer.  They are all the same layout.

Now you can continue the Blog Hop and see all the other creations.  Head to Susan’s Blog by clicking on the arrow below.

Happy Hopping,

TEAM SHOEBOX SWAP – DAY 4!

OK, Today is my last sharing from our recent Team stamp day with Shoebox Swap cards.  I have a few various ones for you.

This one below is using that gorgeous Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut paper.  I have shown lots of cards using this paper recently.  For this card you don’t need much more than backing a section of the paper on to a strip of black card and adhering it to your white base card.  It makes it look so elegant don’t you think??  I think from memory the sentiment banner is a strip of white card and using the small circle punch to notch out each corner.

This next one is a fun fold.  Adhere a strip of the lovely paper, this one is the Nature’s Poem DSP, down the left hand side of the front of your card.  Punch a slit using the Classic Label Punch on the side of the card front.  You need to punch it twice to be sure that the dragonfly fits through. Punch it once near the top, then slide it down a little bit and line it up with the previous punch and punch it again.  A dragonfly from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits was cut from Vellum and also from Cajun Craze.

This is the inside of the card.  The sentiments are from Better Together set.  It’s a cool card.

This card uses the lovely Love What You Do set, the Share What You Love paper and the Lovely Floral Embossing Folder.

This is a cute little treat bag below.  It is very quick to make up.  This is based on Pootles bag -> HERE.

I hope you have so enjoyed these little projects from our team day.  We are getting ready for another get together in the next few weeks.  Hopefully I don’t take as long to share those with you. 😉

Hope your weekend is going awesomely.

Jenny
