Stamping Weekend!
Masculine Birthday Cards

Not Just CardMaking!

What is this?

Owls & Trinket 001

Those Aussie and New Zealand Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who attended the recent Stampin' Up! Convention in sunny Melbourne, will no doubt realise straight away that this is 3/4's of a roll of mini glue dots, being wound onto a full roll of mini glue dots to free up the strong inner core for use in a very cute project.

WARNING : unless you are an SU! demonstrator, DO NOT try this at home!  And if you are an SU! demonstrator, do not try this after a glass of wine!  Heaven only knows how many glue dots I had to remove from my clothing and hair after attempting this!  Thank you darling Shelli Gardner (our Stampin' Up! CEO) for reminding me that my stampin' addiction is an illness and an obsession!

Those of you who weren't at Convention are probably wondering what magical little project could possibly be so enticing, that one would risk life and limb and possible complete entrapment in a contortionistic yoga position by rolls of mini glue dots gone feral??

Well, using out delicious designer series papers and a lovely new stamp set called "Clearly For You", Shelli demonstrated a lovely little trinket box that any horder of brads, buttons and ribbons would be proud to be the owner of!  Here's my version :

Owls & Trinket 014

Owls & Trinket 012

Owls & Trinket 010

Notice how the little string comes out from the bottom and loops around the rhinestone brad to hold the lid closed?

Shelli used the Circles #2 Big Shot Die to create her base and lid, but as I am yet to add that die to my collection, I used the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle for mine. The whole lot is finished with a liberal spray of Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint.

Don't you love it! 

Don't forget, today is the very last day for May Deals of the Week, and also, our Hostess Extra Extra Promotion is now in full swing, with lots of workshops booked to take place in June.  If you don't want to miss the fun and excitement, let me know quickly as I only have 2 dates left in June!

Happy inking!
