Welcome Back, sorry I’ve been MIA

Where have I been you ask?  No where is the answer.  I have just been distracted by the myriad of things that make up everyday family life!

However, I had to get back into action to let you know that the sales period for the 2019-20 Annual Catalogue has begun.  I have put a link in the sidebar of my blog so that you can download a copy.  Of course, I also have hard copies available.  Just contact me if you would like to get one.

I also still have some photos of swaps from Onstage to share.   I couldn’t believe how great the swaps were or the hospitality of the NZ demonstrators.

This swap was created by one of my sideline friends in Canberra, Frances Searle. We traveled to Auckland together and shared a room.

The Best Catch stamp set and coordinating die set, Catch of the Day are still available in this year’s catalogue.

Frances used brushos for the colour and a window sheet stencil for the background. She stamped the fish onto Copper Foil using black Stazon. Isn’t it gorgeous?

The Tropical Chic Stamp Set and Tropical Dies were also popular choices for swaps. They are also carrying over in the new Annual Catalogue. As you can see, they are a very versatile set.

This little punch art Kiwi card is so cute. It was created by Bronwyn Franklin. She has worked wonders with the scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Dies.

Queenslander Carolyn Willis created this sweet treat packaging. The belly band wraps around an acetate pillow box filled with yummy tropical treats.

Australian demonstrator Anna Wheaton created a truly stylish card combining black and Lovely Lipstick with Silver Foil, Sparkle Glimmer, vellum and rhinestones.

Australian Heather Massese used Press N Seal to create a gorgeous Floating Frame card. She has created a lovely outer frame by dry embossing a pair of the Stitched Rectangle Framelit Dies.

This lovely treat package had a label, but no name. It was created with the Envelope Punch Board and used greetings from the Butterfly Gala Stamp set.

Well, I hope you have enjoyed seeing these lovely creations. Remember that you can purchase the products any time from my on-line store, using the link in the Shopping drop-down tab at the top of this page. I promise I won’t wait so long this time.

Sneak Peeks – Onstage Giveaways

Hi stampers, I wanted to share some more of my booty from Onstage.

Onstage2019StampinUpAnnetteMcMillan21042019

This Designer Paper will be in the new catalogue and was an all attendee giveaway at onstage. Initially, I only liked the one sheet, the one with mint macaroon and garden green leaves in it, but having looked more closely, I now love it. There are hummingbirds and roses which can be cut from the paper as well as geometric shapes and the ‘grout’ between the tiles is embossed.

The stamp set is also new and a door prize win. I can see it being handy for cards for those unusual and difficult occasions.

Hope you like them, can’t wait to start creating.

Thanks for stopping by………….till next time,
