Check out these upcoming events in April

Phew! What a busy few weeks doing what I love.  I have just returned from our OnStage Local (mini-convention) in Sydney.  OnStage was fabulous.  It is so nice to get together with your team and also to catch up with demonstrators from around Australia.  Stampin’ Up! is such a generous company – we all came home with loads of goodies from the new Stampin’ Up! catalogue, which will be released on 1 June.  Of course, we were pretty excited to receive a copy of the new catalogue as well, but I can’t share the catalogue details with you yet.  But I can reassure you that it is full of amazing new products.  I was blown away – WOW! WOW! WOW!  My budget is going to take a big hit as I want it all.  Lucky I receive a 25% discount as a demonstrator.

My highlight from the new catalogue is the new colours that Stampin’ Up! is introducing.  The new colours are so refreshing and on-trend.  Can’t wait to start playing with them.  We have also announced the products which are retiring to make room for all the new goodies.  NOOOO! Some of them are my favourites.  To find out more check out my Facebook post (10/4/18) which provides more details or my online store.   I will also be posting more details tomorrow.

I also snuck in a few days off to have a look around Sydney.  The weather was perfect, albeit very hot – unseasonably so. Our hotel views of the harbour were amazing.

But it is now time to get back to crafting.  April is a busy month with my regular events as well as the Crafty Paper Bees Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.  All the details are below or can be found here.  Haven’t prepaid yet? Now is the time.
