    Alaskan Achievers Blog Hop April 2018 – Stampin’ Up!® Onstage events

    Welcome to our Alaska Achievers Blog hop for April.

    This is my second Blog Hop which I have the privilege of taking part in. Demonstrators from all around the globe have earned the incredible Stampin’ Up!® incentive cruise to Alaska this year including myself! It’s now less than 2.5 months until my husband Wade and I leave for this incredible experience.

    You will be inspired by all these amazing, creative people. This month we are sharing some Ideas from Stampin’ Up!® Onstage events that we attended. I went to Luna Park in Sydney.

    Here is a sneak peek of things to come from the new catalogue that is launched on 1 June. If you’d like a copy of the catalogue, please email me.

    I have made two cards using bonus products that we received in our spoils at OnStage. Both are made using beautiful new note cards and envelopes as well as the gorgeous new Delightfully Detailed laser cut DSP which is very vanilla on one side and whisper white on the other.

    On my first card I used the very vanilla side. This DSP is SO beautiful that I let it shine. I just used minimal greetings and embellishments to finish the card off. The new Rich Razzleberry velvet ribbon is stunning. I coloured the rhinestones with matching Stampin’ Blends.

    To finish the card off, I added an insert and stamped it with the matching Oh So Eclectic stamp set and I also stamped the envelope to complete the set.

    With the second card, I used the reverse whisper white side of the laser cut DSP.

    Once again, I kept it simple with another new cute new polka dot ribbon. For the leaves in silver and Rich Razzleberry, I used the leaf punch. I embossed the greeting in silver and added a stamped/embossed embellishment tying the leaf theme together.

    Once again, to finish off the card, I stamped the insert and envelope to match.

    This last card isn’t my design, it was one of my favourite make and takes at OnStage. I just added an additional Rich Razzleberry layer as the base to create a little extra contrast. How pretty is the DSP on this one?!

    I can’t share a carousel today, you’ll need to stay tuned for the NEW catalogue coming 1 June!

    OnStage is so much fun! I had an amazing time with my team as well as lots of other demonstrators. We have the privilege of learning new things, have an amazing time crafting and get our hands on the new coming catalogue.

    If you want to join in on the fun, please join my team.

    On Stage: April 2018 Pics

    I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to attend another On Stage event at Luna Park in Sydney.

    I got to spend time with my team members and 600 other demonstrators. We gathered to learn new things, get the new catalogue… yippee… heaps of freebies and have fun crafting together. 

    I also got to meet Sara, the CEO of Stampin’ Up! too.

    On Stage: April 2018

    I hope you all had a safe and lovely Easter with your family and friends.

    Sale-A Bration has come to a close but the next event  in my calendar is OnStage in Sydney. This is a Stampin’ Up! convention where hundreds of demonstrators gather to learn new things and get a look at the new catalogue that’s coming in June…

    There will be products retiring to make way for new ones, so check back on 9 April for all the details.

    One way to meet new demonstrators and exchange ideas is to create ‘swaps’ This is where you make multiples of the same item along with a ‘recipe card’ of what you used and you swap these items with your fellow demonstrators. I will share the swaps I receive with you next week.

    Here’s what I made for my swap. I used the gorgeous bunny from Sweet Little Something.

    A few pictures to show you my production line process…
