Onstage 2017 in Toronto

April 11, 2017

This past Saturday was Stampin' Up!'s Onstage event! I was able to attend it in Toronto, Ontario. We were treated to learning about the new upcoming 2017-2018 annual catalogue! The above card was one of my swap cards.

Stamps: Always an Adventure
Colours: Soft Sky, Soft Suede, Garden Green, Crushed Curry, Marina Mist, Whisper White
Accessories: Outdoor Adventure framelits, dimensionals

This year Stampin' Up! celebrates 15 years in Canada! Woot! These chocolate cupcakes they had to help celebrate the anniversary were very yummy.

Here I am near the end of the long day of learning & fun!
Do you have trouble with portrait pictures in your scrapbook pages? I do! I find it hard to mix them into my Project Life scrapbooks. But a little planning before printing your pictures can help make it easier. This page uses Design 4 from Variety Pack 1.

These Balloon dies are great for the inside of a card as a pop-up feature but they work well on card fronts as well! The Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies have these cool balloon cut outs. It's best to adhere them using the Fine-tip glue.

The above 2 samples were designed by Lisa Henderson. She used a piece of my fav design found in the Party Animal Designer Series Paper - the Emerald Green with animals wearing party hats! The 3D item has a sucker in it!

My upline, Lisa gives her downline monthly creative challenges. This month her challenge was a sketch challenge. I flipped the sketch on its side to create this card. Don't you love the shimmery Sale-A-Bration Glimmer paper? You can earn it free with a $60 order.

I was at work early last week and took some stamping with me to pass the time. A neat trick for water colouring using the Stampin' Write Markers is to put colour from the marker onto a clear block and then pick up the colour with an Aquapainter to colour the line image.

Stamps: Perfect Mix
Colours: Bermuda Bay, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Bermuda Bay Baker's Twine, Stitched Shapes framelits, Stampin' Dimensionals, Aquapainters

Thank you to everyone who participated in Saturday's crop in support of  Martha's Table. I hope everyone had fun and was able to complete some projects! I was able to work on pictures from 2010 and it's great to see progress in my scrapbook.

The Ferris wheel design of one of the sheets made me think of sunrays. A perfect fit for these pictures from our walk in Lemoine's Point.

The Sprinkles of Life stamp set is so versatile! You can create trees, ice cream cones, cupcakes or basket of flowers! 

The Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper stack has some wonderful patterns to create ice cream or cupcake frosting. Lisa Henderson created this 12"x12" scrapbook page and the 3D Mini Treat Bag below:

These adorable little packages are 1" boxes, but smushed so that a Peppermint Patty can fit inside!
