Onstage! Gold Coast! 2016!

On Saturday eight members of my team 'The Lorikeet Stampers' attended Stampin' Up!s Onstage.  It's such a fun day!

We begin the day in the foyer and swap!  This is totally optional but it's a great way to get into the spirit of the day and catch up with other demonstrators.

I made 36 of these!

The card base is made using Kraft cardstock.  The leaves are cut using the Botanical Builder Framelits from vellum AND the brown paper that comes in our orders.  (And I still have some left!  Ha ha!)
In return, I received a whole bunch of beautiful card fronts.  So many ideas here!  If you are coming to my next class or to my team meeting, you can see them 'in the flesh'.
One beautiful swap was made by Karen, one of my team members.   This cute little box is made using the Envelope Punch Board  I should have chosen a better colour (she had a variety) for photographic purposes!  These were so perfectly made and very popular.  They went like hotcakes!!  Inside is a packet of Maltesers AND THEY ARE STILL THERE!
I wanted to give my team members a little useful something:  These are scissor charms that I made using shrink plastic!  We are The Lorikeet Stampers, so these are lorikeet feathers.

And this is a charming pair of scissors!

I took heaps of photos on my phone but can't get them onto my computer!!!  So I will have to wait till I get my order!

  1. Hello, I am in a Secret Sister Group and would love make a Scissor Charm for her. Can you tell me what you used to make yours. I have the shrink plastic and can do that. I need to know what you used to put the trinket on to wrap around the scissors. Thanks, Cathy

    1. They are called Cell Phone Lariat Straps and I got them from eBay. I bought a bulk lot of 50. I have seen small packs of 5 at those Japanese stores where everything is the same price. Most come with a lobster clip. I take this off and replace it with a split ring also from eBay or maybe a bead shop? Don't forget to punch your hole in your plastic before shrinking. (Ask me how I know!) Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope that's helpful. Anna
