Onstage Auckland

Its been a busy couple of weeks going tramping at Easter then Stampin'Up! OnStage in Auckland last weekend.
10 years last month I started out as a demonstrator with Stampin'Up!Wow what an enjoyable experience it has been. Still love the products and have made many friends through sharing what i love and attending Stampin'Up events. Thankyou to those who have been with me from the start supporting me , buying from me and encouraging me along the way.
Look what I have the latest Annual Catalogue due for release on the 1st of June.
Biggest change occurring then is the colour refresh and revamp.
These colours are retiring never to be seen again. A few colours from previous In-colours are returning. Including Poppy Parade, Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow and Coastal Cabana.
So keep an eye out for the new colours coming.
Those colours that are retiring if they are colours you like buy ink pads, cardstock and reinkers while stocks last.

Scrapbook page

I made this scrapbook page for another category in the Papercraft section of the Methven show.I have used the designer paper from the series True Gentleman. This is in the current Occasions catalogue.
The flowers are not Stampin'Up!

Recipe Mini album

Last week we had the Methven show. I usually enter several entries in the Papercraft section. For my mini album this year I decided to do something a bit  different. I made a recipe book with my favourite desserts. The album was made using the Envelope punch.The designer papers in the Occasions catalogue were ideal to use for making this album.

Cards made with Brusho crystals

Yesterday i had a play with a new product in the Occasions catalogue called Brush Crystals. These are watercolour ink crystals that when mixed with water gives your paper a washed look or can make interesting patterns. You can sprinkle the crystals directly onto your watercolour paper or shimmer paper and then add water with a spritz or aqua painter or you can water wash your paper first then sprinkle the crystals on and watch the colours burst.I tried both techniques with varying results.Their are five different colours in the package;red, orange,green,blue and yellow.
The cards I have made I cased from other demonstrators and some have been changed .
The first card shown I cased off Leonie Schroeder but she hadn't used the brusho crystals for her rectangular part.
I cased this card from SigridskreativeART seen here.
I haven't inked up this Up and Away stamp set for awhile so it was good to team it up with the Brusho colours.
This card I have cased from Libby Dyson seen here.She has made several cards with same layout using different embossing folders and colours. This card I sprinkled the colours on and then blended them with aqua painter then embossed with the brick folder.

Kids are away so today has been my first day to play with some of the new product from the latest Occasions catalogue. The dsp used on these cards called Tutti Frutti doesnt need much else added to them to make cute cards.The words come from Sweet Cupcake stamp set. I was inspired to make these cards from Angela Meritze Reid.You can view her cards here.
My cards are made big enough to fit into the pizza boxes that have carried over from the last mini catalogue.
