My Regional Swap!

Hello Everybody!

Almost a couple of weeks ago, I attended a Stampin’ Up!® Regional Event in Melbourne. It was held at the luxurious Crown Promenade Hotel & I also took along two very eager & excited guests – Leanne & Sheridan.

It is tradition, amongst the Demonstrators, to give each other Swaps. A swap is generally a card-front or little idea using our huge array of stamping products. There is no minimum or maximum to the number of Swaps you make – I only had time to make 20 swaps to give away. So I came home with 20 different Swaps from other Demonstrators or Guests.

Below is my Swap. It isn’t a card-front – it’s a bookmark.

Cardstock: Whisper White & Kiwi Kiss

Stamp set: Eastern Blooms

Ink: Kiwi Kiss & Riding Hood Red

Other: Clear Embossing Powder, Clear Rhinestone Brad, Riding Hood Red Grosgrain Ribbon, Eyelet Border Punch & Bella Rose DSP

I’ll pop back later in the week & upload the photos of the Swaps I received – they all so lovely!

My Final Secret Sister Surprize Package

I was pleasantly surprized yesterday, when my lovely Australia Post lady delivered my final Secret Sister parcel.

My lovely & very creative Secret Sister was Chris Parker-Barnes.

Below are my BEAUTIFUL, GORGEOUS, CUTE, LOVELY gifts – they include (in case you can’t see or they are hidden):

– a little box filled with yummy After Dinner Mints (Yummo!)

– a beautiful card

– a cute little package including tiny envelopes & cards (too nice to open to actually see it)

– a sunny boy container/sour cream container full with brads (or Georges – as I like to call them. lol!)

– an item from my Wish List – a pack of Build A Brads (Georges).

Everything co-ordinated beautifully with the gorgeous Bella Rose DSP.


Thank You Chris for all your lovely gifts/surprizes, you have sent me over the past 3 months.

Why not go & check out Chris’ website, she honestly does alot of beautiful card ideas.
