Welcome to my blog and to this month's Thailand Achievers Blog Hop! This is a fun blog hop where some of the achievers of this year's StampinUp incentive trip are getting together to showcase this month's theme... which is.... (drum roll please)
NEW SALE-A-BRATION ITEMS!
Just in case you didn't know, StampinUp have released several more items to add to their Sale-A-Bration product offering. If you'd like to see them all, you can click HERE to see the product flyer. There are two cute stamp sets and also (my personal favourite) an assortment pack of glimmer papers in a 6"x6" size! And yes, they are still free with a $90 order from any of our catalogues!
I've been using these sets already in my craft studio for the past couple of weeks, and I am loving all the cool stuff you can do with them. But I really wanted to show off what I did in my Cupcakes and Carousels class tonight.... I made cupcakes (how could I not?) and it was a family affair to put them together. My 11 year old, Ben, helped me colour the horses and also cut the glimmer paper circles for the toppers. My 14 year old, Emma, made the icing and iced them, and arranged them on the plates. You can see I used the new Bermuda Bay glimmer paper (my favourite!) behind some of the horses, and yes this is one of the new SAB colours!
There was another reason it was a special class. I had a special guest! Rich Jutkins, the President of StampinUp (in the US) is in Australia this week, and took the time to attend my class. It was a real honour to have him attend. I love that StampinUp is interested in what their demonstrators are actually doing on the front line, and that they take the time to see that for themselves! How many companies do that do you think? Im guessing not many!
Here's Rich and my daughter enjoying a cupcake together...
And here is our class hard at work.... (Have you been to a class lately?? You should check them out! They are always fun and we get creative with lots of different stuff!)
I couldnt help but use the glimmer papers in our projects tonight... here are the cards we made:
And here are the glimmer papers themselves, showing off these gorgeous colours!
Even the supply bags were stamped with new SAB stamps... I love the way these words stamp!
