Ellen Does OnStage April 2018 Sydney!

I just had an amazing weekend at Luna Park in Sydney for 2018 OnStage April. It was extra excited  not just to see the NEW NEW 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue and my demonstrator friends. I was a Display Stamper which mean I got some of the NEW 2018-2019 Catalogue Products Early and share them on the Display Boards. 

I arrived a little early before the Friday night event to set up my board and here it is below

 


My amazing friend Caroline Evans and Liv Ingle who were also Display Stampers helped me set it up my board which was amazing.

Here is a pic of Carolina and I

Kayla Renee MacAuley was also one of the amazing Display Stampers and a scrappy friend I have known for a really long time

In the process of setting up we had some laughs like my projects attaching to my watch band as it velcro!!!!! Only me Seriously



I didn't get to making any swaps but did make team gift and received some beautiful swaps and here is a video showcasing those

I was lucky enough to to earn an extra perk of the CentreStage evening which involved training, mingling with other leaders, dinner, trivia and a whole lot of fun and since Stampin' Up! is 30 Years old this year the evening was themed 80's




I shopped my wardrobe and put together this ensemble complete with scarf around my head and borrowed beads from my mums collection

Sara Douglass and I (she is our CEO!)

On Saturday was the main OnStage with almost 600 of my Demonstrator friends and the room was so colourful here are pictures of the different tables that all coordinated









This is my crazy friend Rosalie who came from Victoria

Renae was apparently very excited to see my display




I apparently had to be adorned my a stray pearl

We are not cheeky and crazy together at all!!



I was very excited to have 8 of team members with me and here my gorgeous Wicked Woody's Girls

One of the best things about OnStage is making new friend and this is Dirk who looks after ALL the Photos and Videos for everything Stampin' Up! and I must say he does an amazing job and was fun to get to know!!


I have also shared a closer look at the products I received at onstage which are amazing over on Facebook Page so be sure to check it out!!!

Paint Play Collage Birthday Card #sucolorchallenge

I am here today to share with you my April Stampin' Up! Conor Challenge. This month we are playing with Dapper Denim, Soft Sky, So Saffron and Smoky Slate and Paint Play stamp set from Stampin' Up!

    
      

 I made these 3 backgrounds all at the same  making a collage playing with all the shapes in the Paint Play stamp set and well as the challenge colours. For the sentiment I used the Stamparatus to Stamp the Happy and Birthday so they line up perfectly and then punched them out with the Everyday Label Punch and layered that with a circle of vellum cut from the Layering Circle Framelits in the Big Shot.
                                                                                                                                                                                                      



The Stamparatus will available to purchase in the upcoming Annual catalogue in June. 
It can used just like this to stamp multiple images on a card (but not this fast!)

Christmas Pines with Be Merry Paper Treat Bags

Welcome to the 3rd Installment of the Christmas Challenge Stampathon 2018 with three of my Demo buddies Ruth Trice 'Artful Stampin' from the UK, Denise Garrison 'Lady Bug Stampin' from USA, Rosalie Desmond from Australia. Our March is Challenge is to make  2 at least 2 Foldable Treat Bags that you can store flat ready for Christmas.


For my sample I have used Striped Treat Bags for the base of original and in th video sample I have used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit to create my bag from the Sale-A-Bration Springtime Florals Speciality Paper. For the first embellishment on the bag I used a strip of the Be Merry Paper along with a strip of the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate as the base and I flagged both the ends using the Tailored Tag Punch. I added the Metallic Foil Doilies over this with a punched circle of Emerald Envy card stock and the Banner from Mini Treat Bag which I Silver Embossed using the Noel Sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set.


My second sample is made using the Mini Treat Bags Framelits and Springtime Foils Paper from Sale-A-Bration with the same embellishment! And HERE is the video of my making it
