I was fortunate and blessed to be able to attend Milwaukee OnStage this past weekend. What a blast!!! First of all, it was to celebrate my upline, Dawn Olchefske's, $1 million dollars in sales achievement!! WOOHOO!!!! We are so proud and happy for her!!! When they blast the confetti cannons I thought she was going to jump off stage as she wasn't expecting them. Here she is with Shelli on stage:
If you ever get a chance to attend OnStage-DO IT!!! You meet so many people and learn different tips and tricks. It is SO WORTH IT!!!
Here is our group of DOStamper Stars:
Before OnStage I posted my two 3D swaps on Facebook. Well, needless to say and happy by the way, the demonstrators loved them. I thought I would post pics and directions here. Sadly, the Lots to Love Box Framelit Die is going to be retired. This is what I used to make the box. It is easy to make just time consuming (does that even make sense-LOL) Cut 2 of the Lots to Love Box Framelits. Take one and cut an oval shape out. The one that you cut the oval shape out of do NOT fold on the score line. Leave it upwards to create the arch. Adhere both together but cut the small tabs off the side of the one with the oval.
Stamp and die cut out the floral swag from the Hold to Hope stamp and die set. Adhere to the front of the box. Cut 8, 3/8" strips of Whisper White paper. Sponge the edges with Smokey Slate. Punch the end of each one with the Classic Label punch. Adhere to box around the oval. Trim the ends. Punch flowers from the Tree Builder punch and add rhinestones. Also stamp and die cut the butterfly from the Hold on to Hope set. Add the flower seeds and package. This would make a great Mother's Day Gift to hand out at church, co-worker, friend, teacher..........
My 2nd 3D swap-Apple Pie Air Freshener:
For this project my inspiration came from Erica Cerwin. She recently made a card with an apple pie on it. Since I had just posted recently about my Lemon and Orange Air Fresheners--I thought I would try the apple pie. And, it worked!!!
4" square coasters, Cherry Cobbler cardstock, Tree Builder punch for the apples, Delicate Doilies, Tombow glue, 1/8" whisper white sheer ribbon, 1/4" Cherry Cobbler double stitched ribbon, Glue Dots, Basket weave Embossing Folder, Sponge, Crumb Cake Ink, Pretty Label punch, Stitched framelits, Circle Layering Framelits, Apron of Love stamp set and framelits, Big Shot, clear envelopes, stapler, Crop a Dile, Wood Textures DSP, Essential Oils or Warmer Diffusing Oil
Cut one of each from the coasters. One stitched circle and one scallop circle. Emboss the stitched circle with the Basket weave Embossing folder. Glue together with TomBow glue. Punch hole with Crop a Dile. Apply oil on the back of the scallop circle and let dry. After drying, sponge the embossed side with Crumb Cake ink. Thread the white sheer ribbon and tie a knot. Tie a bow around this with the Cherry Cobbler stitched ribbon. Punch 2 apples, take basic black marker to color stem and attach with glue dots to the front. To package as I did-you need the Apron of Love stamp set and framelits. Stamp the I heart baking on Wood Textures DSP. Cut out with the rolling pin framelit. Attach to the Cherry Cobbler Pretty Label punch. Fold a doilie in half over the clear envelope and staple.
Please subscribe to my blog to see these and other projects. I would LOVE to be your demonstrator!!!
I hope you are able to give these a try!!!
