Last week my family and I were at The Collaroy Centre at a conference for the Christian Camping industry. We have been attending this conference since 2008 and it is run every second year. They run a trade show each time and as my husband runs his own business, Ministry of Tech, we have a stand at the Trade Show. It’s a good way to increase business for the next two years.
This year we decided we were going to do a marketing campaign that would involve a seat drop where we would put something onto each seat for the delegates. We came up with this idea.
As Stampin’ Up! sell the mini pizza boxes,
I thought it was something different than just a flyer dropped onto the seat and would also be something that people would remember. This idea has just grown into something that we didn’t expect.
On the top of the box I have used Tranquil Tide card cut out with a square from the Layering Squares Dies. I printed our logo onto Whisper White card stock and then cut that out using the Layering Squares Dies. We decided that we wanted to go with a theme of puzzle pieces which Stampin’ Up!’s Puzzle Pieces Thinlits and Big Shot Embossing Mats came in handy for. You can see the embossed image of puzzles on the top of the box.
We made up square business cards to go into the boxes with different icons to match the different areas of products & services that we provide.
We wanted to do some giveaways as well to some of the delegates so we came up with the idea of a puzzle that they had to solve. But we mixed up the puzzle pieces to make it a little harder and for them to mingle and network with the other delegates.
We were hoping the giveaways would have taken a couple of days for them to do but they were all completed within 15 minutes. We’ll have to come up with something that will take a lot longer next time around.
This term I will be holding another Childrens Craft Course. The course is for children in years 2 and up. The course will run on Wednesdays 4pm-530pm commencing 14th February through till 28th March, 2018.
During the course the children will learn about colour theory and stamping techniques. The projects that they’ll be making this term will be a 3D Frame with coloured swirls, a set of 6 cards with a box, 8 easter baskets that the kids can put eggs into and give to their friends and 4 more cards using some water colour pencils.
If you’d like to book your kids into this class then send me an email and I’ll book them in. My classes are limited to 6 students to allow me time to spend with each student.
There are some fabulous products available in the new Occasions Catalogue that has just been released.
Check out all the products online at my shop or via this pdf.

Day 7 brings these cute little bon bons made from the Year with Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper.
I had a request for some boxes for a Christmas table that would hold 2-3 chocolates. This is what I found on YouTube. I love these little boxes so much that I’m going to make some for my Christmas table this year.
These are just two designs of from the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper which is on the retiring list till its sold out.
I found a video on how to make these cure bon bons at Intertwyne Designs. They are so cute and I had to make them. There is a also a box that she made to fit 4 of these into.
For my Day 5 project I made up a jar with “Reindeer Noses” inside which are Malteasers and Jaffas. Its a cute little project that anyone would love. A great gift for kids too though maybe a bit too much chocolate.
I’ve used the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper, Green Sprigs, Mini Ornaments & Black Shimmer Ribbon and purchased the glass jar from Kmart.
I’ve listed all the products used at the bottom of this post.
The 12 Days of Christmas continues with the this gorgeous project.
This is a gorgeous paper wreath that I’ve seen on different Facebook pages and so I have made my own to go on my front door. I just love the colours of Cherry Cobbler & Garden Green together. They really are great Christmas Colours. I added the Black Striped Ribbon to add some more contrast and added in the Cherry Cobbler Stitched ribbon.
I have used the sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments and cut it out with the Lots of Labels Framelits.
And here is it on my Front Door. I was concerned that with some of the rain that it may get damaged or with the sun that it will fade but, as my husband said, you can make another next year. Well why not make another one next year 🙂
I have included a video of how to make this project as well so you can make one at home. Or you can contact me to find out how to make it.
