VIDEO: Onstage Auckland Swaps and Photos Part 1

Today I made a two hour video sharing all the swaps and gifts that I received at Onstage Auckland recently. It is so amazing to see the incredible talent that so many demonstrators have and I want to share that with you. I know that you are going to get some AWESOME ideas from all of these swaps.

You may be wondering "what is a swap?" Bruno, Jessie and I made around 200 cards that we then swapped with others at the event for a project that they had made. It is so much fun and a great way to get inspiration from others. Plus we got to meet lots of wonderful people too. Swapping is so much fun so at our next Onstage event in November plan what you can make for that event. You can plan ahead for November as the annual catalogue will be still current and you can use any products from that catalogue.

Here is my EPIC video from today - 

Here are just some of the swaps that I received - I will have more posts to show you the rest! Feel free to pin them so you can keep them for ideas.





















Thank you for coming by today! If you have any questions for me just click on the connect tab above and email me or send a message through the various social media platforms. Haven't they all done an amazing job?? We are so grateful to have all these beautiful handmade projects that have made us so happy and given us lots of inspiration - hopefully you too.

Bloom & Grow Stamp Set Introducing Terracotta Tile

Woo Hoo!! We have some new colours to welcome and one of them is the new Terracotta Tile. I have used the brand new stamp set called Bloom & Grow with some Mint Macaron and Calypso Coral Blends.

These beautiful Blooms are going to be a favourite stamp set of many I am sure. What a stunning stamp set for Weddings especially that beautiful sentiment.

I used the amazing Tin Tile 3D Embossing folder - (wow no more tongue twister there!! Woo Hoo!!) Loving the new name and finally I will get it right in my videos. hahahaha. I embossed the Terracotta Tile card front part way and then the "join" I covered with the Whisper White Scallop edge from the Budding Blooms Dies that coordinate with the Bloom & Grow Stamp set.

They help you put a card together fast and give you the measurements in EVERY country, in EVERY measurement if you have my tutorial. So creating with me gets a WHOLE lot easier and more fun!

Here is the card that I created today that I made for Sara Douglass to thank her for all her hard work at the New Zealand Onstage event. She worked so hard at this event! So many amazing talks and presentations. We appreciate all she does for these events and as CEO of the company and yet is so down to earth and approachable.

I also made a SUPER quick video to show you how easy it is to use my card templates to work out your layers and put together a super quick #loveitchopit card.

Wondering where the sentiment came from? It's from the gorgeous Notes of Kindness Stamp set found in the Notes of Kindness card kit. AWESOME NEWS - the kit is staying in the annual catalogue coming up in June! Woo Hoo!! Party time. You will see me use this Thanks sentiment more often. It is an awesome one.

Big thank you to everyone for your wonderful comments about our Onstage coverage - Bruno's amazing videos and our posts.

SNEAK PEEK: Good Morning Magnolia

Oh my goodness..... This new CATALOGUE is INCREDIBLE. I am coming up to ten years with Stampin' Up!® in May and I am just amazed that Stampin' Up!® can keep coming up with catalogues that inspire me to create.

This incredible stamp set called Good Morning Magnolia is just so beautiful. It is also perfect with the Blends.

On the leaves I used the Light old Olive, Light Soft Suede and Light Granny apple Green.
The flower I used Memento ink and then Light Flirty Flamingo with Petal Pink.

I used the Magnolia Memory Dies to cut out that stunning flower. 

The sentiment was also from the Good Morning Magnolia set. I cut it out with the new Timeless Label Punch that was given to me as a gift at our Centerstage event.

The gorgeous background is the beautiful Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper.

Are you in LOVE??? I know that I am!

Here are the items so you can put them on your Wishlist for June. Remember that you can join my Stampin' Up!® team and get 20% off all of these new products when they arrive.

NEW Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper - Greek Isles Blog Hop April 2019

Welcome to our Greek Isles Achievers Blog hop this month! We are a group of Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that have earned the incredible Stampin' Up!® incentive trip that we will be going on this year. We are hopping together to share with you some awesome inspiration using BRAND NEW Stampin' Up!® products.

I have BRAND NEW products to show you from the upcoming 2019-2020 Stampin' Up!® Catalogue that will be released on the 1st June! Bruno and I just got back from the AMAZING Stampin' Up!® Onstage event that showed us all the new products that are coming and we are DROOLING.

Here is just one sheet of the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper - 

Its so important to #loveitchopit and get that paper onto our cards and use it! If you are scared to chop just make sure you have another pack there so you don't have as much fear. How much nicer is it on a card than in your shelf though??

If you want to see MORE of the amazing new Stampin' Up!® Products you can check out the video that I made today. Be warned it is pretty long and I am totally delirious...... hahahaha. You will get to see just a snippet of the amazing things coming soon!
