Not Memory Keeping

November 10, 2018

Today being Saturday I would normally post a Memory Keeping page, today I am doing something a little different because today I am attending Onstage Local in Brisbane.  This is a demonstrator only event where we get to meet up with our fellow demonstrators and learn lots of great things from Stampin’ Up!.  We also get to see product from the Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration catalogues to be released in January.  I am lucky enough to be attending this with three of my team members and I know we are going to have a great time.  It is customary to give a gift to your traveling companions when you attend these events so here is what I gave to Jenny, Joyce and Elizabeth.  I love the Snowflake Trinkets which are part of the Snowflake Showcase Product Suite and thought how pretty they would look as earrings.  So I made a set of earrings for each of the ladies and of course a pair for me as well.   They did turn out rather well and not so difficult to make.  Of course you can’t just give a present without packaging them Stampin’ Up! style, so I created a little pizza box from Cherry Cobbler card and made an insert to hold the earrings from Whisper White card.  Once I added the earrings, I closed the box, wrapped it with Gold 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon and tied a knot.  I stamped the outline image from the Label Me Pretty stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White card.  I stamped “for you” from the Graceful Garden stamp set using Black ink.  I used my Crop-a-dile to punch a hole in the end.  The tag is attached to the Gold 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon using  Linen Thread.  They look kind of pretty don’t they?

I wanted to make the girls something practical as well, so I used the Full Wide Stamp Cases and added handles which I bought at Bunnings.  They are all decorated using the beautiful Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper.  These little cases are designed to hold your essential crafting supplies – scissors, adhesive, dimensionals and the like – when you are travelling to an event (like Onstage), but to gift them I filled them with chocolate.  Chocolate and a Stampin’ Up! event – a match made in heaven!   I created a tag for each bag using Whisper White card which I punched using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and I rounded the corners at the bottom using the Envelope Punch Board.  I stamped the tall straight leaf from the First Frost stamp set using Mint Macaron ink.  I stamped the larger leafy image from the same stamp set using Mossy Meadow ink.  I added everyone’s names using the Stamparatus, the Labeler Alphabet and Merry Merlot Ink.  The tags are attached using Silver 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon and a hinged ring.   I think these are a great idea and I am sure will be very useful.

I am going to try and add photos to my Facebook Page today (I’m not very tech savvy so we will see), so if you want to see what’s coming in the New Year, stop by and have a look.

One of the best things about attending these events is getting to catch up with friends you have probably only talked to online.  I also get to catch up with other members of the Stampin’ Up! team I belong to – Steph’s Stampers, including my lovely upline Stephanie Pike.

Have a wonderful Saturday, I know that I will.

Bye for now,
