OnStage Solihull Swaps – Ribbon Scissor Charms

Last weekend Hubby and I went to Solihull for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Local event which is held twice a year.  Demonstrators who attend get a copy of the upcoming catalogue and play with some of the new products.

For the event I made 50+ swaps and I got to swap and chat with lots of demonstrators. I came home with a bag full of swaps that I can use for inspiration.

 

For my swaps I made Ribbon Scissor charms with the Shrinkles Shrink Art sheets, these are great fun to play with.  They reminded me of when I was at school and I used to put crisp packets in the oven to shrink them and make key rings and badges with them.  Did you do that too?

Swirly Snowflakes All Year Round

To cut down on the cost of Christmas I’ve been making some handmade Christmas gifts. One of the things I’ve been making is covered notebooks, I went Christmas shopping with my daughter recently and I couldn’t believe how expensive they were.

It is definitely a lot cheaper for me to buy some plain notebooks and cover them myself using the colours and designs I want to use.

Pokémon Pokéballs Christmas Card

When I was making my swaps for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event that I went to in Telford earlier this month I used the Jolly Hat Builder Punch to make Christmas hats for my UPS teddy bears.  

Whilst putting together 60 hats I had a ‘light bulb moment’ about Pokémon Pokéballs with Santa hats. I told my hubby and daughter about my mad idea and they both said “Do it.”
