Onstage April 2017 - Perth

Today is the day!
(and it's a long post, so grab a cuppa and get comfy!)
Today is Onstage Local Perth!
Today we get to get together with other Stampin' Up! demonstrators and swap handmade goodies, get our fingers inky stamping new projects, be inspired by amazing local and worldwide demonstrations and best of all, we get to see the brand new upcoming catalogue!!
I am sure if you are in WA, you are bound to hear the excitement from your house!
I am lucky enough to be attending onstage in my hometown of Perth, with 3 of my gorgeous team. This is the very first SU event for 2 of my team, so I wanted to make it special for them.
I put together a little kit, using our full-size woodmount cases - which you can find on page 183 of the current annual catalogue. There are 3 varieties of these clear cases, and I use them for storing my dimensionals, rhinestones, adhesives, enamel shapes, washi tape, card kits, premade cards, really, you can put in anything that fits in them! They come in a pack…

April Stamp Club Projects

On the weekend, I had my April Stamp Club. This month we focused on the Balloon Adventures stamp set (142823) and matching thinlits, Balloon Pop Up Thinlits (142753). I love to show my ladies how versatile a set is, so I showed them how to make a small see-thru gift box, a shadow-box card and a gift card holder. I found all of  the tutorials online and just remade them in my own colours.  The colours I used were Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Pacific Point. It was also great to be able to show them how valuable the new die brush is for getting the fragile balloon strings out of the die without breaking them - always the most frustrating part! We also used the Balloon Bouquet punch (140609) for the balloons. I love these projects - don't you? Invite me over with a few of your friends, and I would love to show you just how easy these projects are :)

And Sale-a-bration is over for another year!

What a great Sale-a-bration it was this year!
Did you get your favourite SAB items before it finished? How gorgeous was that glimmer paper? I really loved the Hey Chick stamp set, too cute!
Even tho it is sad that SAB has gone for another year, we now have a new Annual Catalogue to look forward to!
On Saturday April 8, I am off to our six-monthly Stampin' Up! catchup, known as Onstage, where I will get my hands on a brand new Annual Catalogue!! I can't wait! We are able to register from 7.30am (early start for the first day of school hols here in Perth!) and will spend the day oohing and aahing over new products, both in the catty and in our hands as we do make and takes and get to play! I will be going with 3 of my team, and we are looking forward to a great day full of inspiration and laughs - SU events are always such fun!!
The current Annual catalogue will finish on May 31st, and the retirement list will be coming out mid-April, so we will soon know what we will be saying goodby…
