Hello Stampin’ Up! Convention!!!

Hello!!!  Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been madly making preparations to fly East for the annual Stampin’ Up! convention. Mr Papercraft and the little misses are staying at home and Nanna Papercraft and I are off to play!!!

This year we are being hosted by the sunny Gold Coast and as Stampin’ Up! are changing their event structure, it is the last one in this format [I’ve heard whispers that this means some events might be hosted in Perth in the future – YAY!].

So, while many of you were sleeping last night, I was trying to catch a few winks on the red eye and I’m excited to now be on the Gold Coast!!!  I’m looking forward to sharing as much convention fun as I can with you both here and on my Facebook page.  Make sure you subscribe to one or both to get updates.

This is the name badge I made so that my fellow demonstrators from the ESAD (Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators) Facebook page can find me and say hi.  The tag theme was ‘using the owl punch’.  So, I’ve used the owl to make a mini version of Peppa Pig punch art.


Peppa Pig Punch Art using the owl punch:

  • Head: owl with the ears and feet cut off
  • Ears: middle circles
  • Snout: 3/4″ circle & middle circles
  • Eyes: middle circles & circles from the cupcake builder
  • Cheek: largest circle
  • Mouth: largest circle double cut
  • Body: owl with the feet cut off
  • Arms & legs: owl cut into strips with feet still attached
  • Shoes: middle circle, snipped into a quarter circle

The convention is going to be a fun game of putting faces to the names of online friends.  What an opportunity to spend 3 days with like-minded people!  Kelly x

PS, I have a secret that I’ve been keeping from you for the past couple of months – any guesses???

My bucket list of card making

Hello and welcome to my blog! I’ve been attempting to write a blog for a long time but for many reasons haven’t gotten to the point of being able to publish anything. My blog will be mostly a papercraft journey following cards and projects I make for family, friends and as a hobby. These will use Stampin’ Up! products – my favourite for their quality & coordination.

My first share with you was a first for me – framed art. I made this for a friend who had a baby boy this week. She’s a Stampin’ Up! fan too so I knew she’d love the trio of blues – Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay & Island Indigo.

I’m excited to share more, thanks for taking the time to read this 🙂
