ONSTAGE – BUDDY GIFTS AND SWAPS!

Did you catch the video in yesterday’s post with the swaps I received from Onstage?¬† If not, head back to the last post. I have the still photos there too.

Today I wanted to share with you my buddy gifts and the swaps I made to share.

BUDDY GIFT PACKS

I made up little Gift Packs – or Onstage survival kits. ūüėČ I made up 4 of them.

These packs contained a notebook.¬† I loved these notebooks.¬† Two had on the front “Don’t Forget To Be Awesome” and the other two were “My Awesome Book of Brilliant Ideas”.¬† I thought these would be great to write notes in at the Onstage sessions.¬† In the packs there was some mini Tic Tacs, Tea Bag, Kit Kat Chocolate and of course Mini Post-It notes for the new catalogues.¬† I will show you a close up of the tags I made.

THE TAGS

A scallop square was cut with the Layering Square Framelits and also a larger black square.¬† On the white card I stamped the sentiment from the Around The Corner stamp set.¬† Then stamped the small “flowery” centre shape on to Mango Melody Card and punched it out with the 3/4″ circle punch.¬† Then I diecut a flower in Mango Melody Card from the Flourish Thinlits and layered them together.¬† Before adhering the flower to the card with Dimensionals I stamped the leaf from the Around The Corner set in Granny Apple Green.¬† The Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon was adhered between the white scallop square card and the black card.¬† They are simple but I loved how they turned out.

MY SWAP

I didn’t have a lot of time to make swaps but I really wanted to and I knew I wasn’t going to have a lot of time to swap on the Saturday as I was helping with registration in the morning. So I kept the card simple and only ended up making 15 of them.

This was my swap card.

I have used the Rooted in Nature Bundle.  The tree and the leaf were heat embossed in Copper and diecut out. The sentiment is from Wood Words stamp set.  I wanted to go for an angle look so angled the paper from the Love What You Do Specialty Paper.  Underneath the paper there was a strip of the Copper Foil Paper. To finish I tied a knot using the Copper Trim.

Now since I hadn’t made many swaps I had a few doubles of cards from recent classes so thought I would add those to the swap mix.¬† These are the group of cards.¬† I had 2-3 of each card. These were received well too.

Thanks everyone for swapping with me.  I hope you liked your card you received from me.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU CARD

Earlier I mentioned that I was helping on the Saturday.¬† This was the special card I received from Stampin’ Up! to say Thanks.¬† Totally unexpected.¬† It was signed by all the staff that were there.¬† How lovely.

This uses the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper.

Thanks for visiting me.  I hope you like them.

Tomorrow is another 12 Weeks of Christmas Edition so see you then.

Catalogues, Classes, Workshops

STAMPIN’ UP! CATALOGUE LAUNCH!! PART 1.

This week I had my Catalogue Launch for this fantastic new catalogue.  I had 2 sessions. One Friday night and one on Saturday.  Both of them were lots of fun and laughs and of course creating.  I thought I would share some of the fun with you.

Firstly,  I had a Product Playground area with lots of new products that everyone could have a play with.  This was very popular.

Here we had an Incolor bookmark they could make.  A great way to have a sample of the new Incolors for their catalogue.  Then they could use the Ombre Ink pads.  This one is the Bermuda Bay.  I will tell you about the Ombre Inkpads in another post.  They could stamp the flower and add it to a card when they get home.

Of course we had to play with Baby Bear. ¬†I had done a few different colour combinations to show and they could stamp their own Baby Bear. ¬†He (or she) was very popular! ¬†I will tell you about Baby Bear in another post too.:) ¬†I also had the new embossing folder ‘Floral Affection’ which is really lovely too. ¬†So many nice new products.

Now I like to spoil my lovely ones who come.  There was some fun gifts and some very useful product gifts.

I made up some Catalogue Survival Kits. To help everyone through their catalogue.

Survival Kit

I found these fun Post-It notes and made up these cards for everyone so they can add them to their catalogue. For the header on these Post-It note cards I created the heading on the computer and then stamped around it with the ‘Swirly Bird’ stamp set.

Post it notes

I have so much Designer Series Paper and ribbon and bits from past years so I bagged up a lot to give a special grab bag to everyone. ¬†I think everyone thought it was Christmas. ūüôā ¬†It was a lovely way to say Thanks to them not just for coming to my launch but for their loyal support many for some years. ¬†It was so lovely to see the joy in their faces. ¬†That made the day all worthwhile.

Treat bag - 2

It wasn’t a fancy bag but these Stampin’ Up! Bags are a good size for the Designer Series paper – and I have so many of them! ¬†I made a quick tag using the ‘Thoughtful Banners’.
