Good Morning Ladies,
Hello from a wet and windy Birmingham, we arrived early evening yesterday, went out for something to eat and I got to meet Danni's team lady Dee, who is lovely.
Danielle and I then went back to our room to open our swaps and generally mess about, we chatted for hours which is nothing new.
The photo above is of the swaps I made for the Stampin'Up! Onstage Event, I made them using the Stampin'Up! Petite Treats Framelits dies to make the actual gift box and a selection of other dies to decorate, the main one being Pretty Pines dies. I made 51 in total, with Sue's help, making the little boxes was easy but the embellishments took the time, because each of those elements were cut individually, I like how they turned out though, I was grateful for Sue's help I can tell you.
This is my first ever Pocket letter, I made it for a swap with Danielle, she has made a few for swaps the other ladies, I had no idea what to do so I looked at a few on pinterest and made this up, I used some Vintage Christmas Pion papers that I have been hoarding. I was quite pleased with how it turned out and would gladly do another.
I made this lace dangle to hang on the side of the pocket letter, I used some of the same ribbon in the pocket letter itself.
Pocket letter complete with lace dangle on the side.
Michele had a £10 voucher for Craftstash and this is what she put it towards, such unusual embossing folders, perfect for man cards. I love that Merry Christmas die too, I like how simple the font is.
Looking forward to seeing what you make with your new stash Michele, thanks so much for sharing it with us. xxxx
Danielle made 15 of these notebooks to share with our Team members at Onstage tomorrow, she has done a YouTube tutorial on them too if you want to go over and see how they are made.
These are so lovely Danielle, everyone will love them. xxxx
Thats all for now, we are leaving our hotel at 7am to get to the venue for 7.45 (lord only knows why its so early)! In fact we had to pop out to a local shop to get some of those Porridge Pots that you just add water too and a tin of Golden Syrup for breakfast as hotel breakfast doesn't start until 7am.
The laugh is when I see those pots I always say 'why would anyone pay that much money for those when you get a huge bag of oats for a few pence' But needs must!
I hope that you all have a lovely weekend,
Love and hugs
