Hello to anyone visiting after stopping by our stand at the Melbourne Show this year. We had a great time at the Make and Take Stand in the Art, Craft and Cookery Pavillion over 3 days at the show. Lots of people sat down with one of our team to make a project. It was terrific to see so many young people amongst those having some craft time.
Here's Kylie and I ready for our first make and take visitors. Kylie's punch art animal bookmarks were a hit.
Here's Di Dunk in action all ready for some cardmakers.
And here's Aris and I on the Wednesday. Aris had a lovely scrap page for people to try some scrapping.
And I forgot my camera on the last day so no pics of Tracy - oops! She had a great punch art dragonfly card for people to try.
Here's a few shots of my make and take projects.
For this one people had a choice of Rich Razzleberry or the lovely new blue Marina Mist.
I love the new satin ribbons. Having just that right shade to coordinate with your cardstock and inks makes all the difference doesn't it.
Tip: The new self adhesive pearls and rhinestones make a great finishing touch for these cards. We found it easiest to use some tweezers and slide them off the backing sheet sideways rather than pulling them straight up.
I'll be back very soon to show you my other project - a butterfly card. It was very popular - those gorgeous butterflies make such a quick and easy feature for a card.
Must send a thank you to my mum and dad who minded my two while I was at the show. Jack had his first sleepover and both he and Hannah had a ball by the sounds of things.
Here they are heading off for an adventure at Poppy and Maddy's. (Jack wore his backpack and wheeled his case along all morning mind you. I called him in to clean his teeth and in he came with case in tow! Think he was a bit excited!!)
Speaking of packing - something else I've been doing in the last few days is unpacking boxes! Yes those launch orders have arrived ....
This is definitely the biggest pile of Stampin' Up boxes I've seen. I think we're keeping my postie employed all by ourselves girls!!
Here's my lounge room floor half way through the unpacking!
What a fun job checking out all those lovely goodies. I think I managed to add a few things to my 'hmmm wouldn't mind that' list in the process!
Well better leave it at that for today. I'll be back Friday with my butterfly cards, some more school holiday fun snaps and some exciting craft show news.
See you soon,
