Sneak Peeks – Onstage Giveaways

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


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,

2019 Onstage Live Auckland


Well, welcome back. It’s taken me nearly a week to get to posting some of the info about Onstage. It was amazing, mainly because of the incredible welcome by the Kiwi demonstrators.

This is the bag we received on arrival and most of the contents. I think I misplaced a couple of pens!

I will gradually share pics of all aspects of the gathering, so come back soon to see what I’ve added. I will show you the giveaways, the swaps, the new catalogue (cover only at this stage), the make n takes, the boards and more.

thanks for stopping by……till next time,

Swap Card 4 – Best Catch Card

My final Onstage Live Card was designed as a male card for birthday or Father’s Day. I do realise that there are many female fishers out there but I often find it difficult to create men’s cards. I should have returned from Auckland and caught up with day-to-day jobs by now so I’ll share something live soon, promise!

I had a lot of fun making this card. I googled rainbow trout to make sure I had vaguely authentic colours and I think I succeeded. I love the way the dies cut the fish’s fins so that they can be popped up. You probably can’t see in the photo, but I added wink of stella to the fins to give them a little sparkle.
