My team WOW swaps and more

A normal part of OnStage events is to make swaps and share them with others in return for one of their swaps. This time around we decided that we would stick to making WOW swaps just for our team, the Crafting Acorns.

I made a start on mine a couple of weeks ago when I printed off the Stampin' Up! Statement of the Heart. I'd bought some key rings and fridge magnets when I was last in San Diego and thought that they would make great swaps for the team.

As well as stamps, ink and paper these are the basic tools that I used!

Each keyring had a Statement of the Heart on one side and an stamped image on the other. I also decorated the ring with some ribbon and a bow made from some Baker's Twine.

Each keyring was put in it's own decorated mini pizza box along with some of the Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie.

Both the back of the keyring and the mini pizza boxes were decorated using the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and inks in the same colour as the statement of the heart - Lemon Lime Twist, Pink Piroutte and Pool Party.

At the same time as I bought the key rings I also bought some fridge magnets, so I used those to make some little gifts for friends.

I glued some Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon to the back of the magnet and then inserted the Statement of the Heart into the front of the holder.

I finished the gifts off by wrapping them in some white tissue paper and a made a medallion for the front using the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set with a sentiment from the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set. I just love the fonts on the stamp set and they fit the Pretty Label Punch perfectly.

Hope you like the projects I shared.

Today is a big day because the Retirement List will be released this evening (about 8.00 pm). Some of you know what the list may look like from previous years but, just so you know -
  • Don't panic. The list maybe long because of items on there which are being re-configured due to re-branding and packaging. This means that they will be in the 2018-19 Catalogue but may look a little different.
  • Items that are retiring will be available on a while stocks last basis, so don't wait to order if it's on your must have wish list.
  • I will be placing an order this coming weekend so if you live local and can collect from me please get in touch by 8.00 pm on Friday (13 April). Please bear in mind that your chosen items may no longer be available by then though.
  • Ordering online. Don't forget to use this month's Oak Leaf Club Code for all orders below £150. The code is PQT36NXN. I'll then know to send you a gift next month along with your thank you card. 
Check back this evening for the link to the retirement list.

Happy stamping.
