On Stage Swaps for Telford

Hello, thanks for stopping by.
Today is going to be really exciting,
as it's Stampin' Up! OnStage.
Conventions are held worldwide for demonstrators
to learn about new products, training and to meet each other.
Traditionally we a make swaps,
small cards or 3-d items to share ideas with each other.

I wanted to combine mine with Parkinson's awareness month,
so I bought some of their paper bags and cornflower seed favours.

I made some 3" square gift cards,
with a little pocket to hold the seeds.

I used Flower Shop and Timeless Texture to decorate,
adding Iridescent Ice embossing powder,
and some silver thread to echo the flower design.

There's an explanation on the back of the seeds

work in progress....

Tempting Turquoise and Pacific Point colours
went well with the Parkinson's merchandise.

My Dad and Cousin suffer from this awful disease,
so it was nice to do something positive to raise awareness,
as more research is needed to find a cure.

Hopefully I will have lots of swaps in return to show you too!

Have a great weekend

I would love you to help me celebrate my Fifth Anniversary with
Stampin' Up! this merry month of April,

  1. WOW - love your swaps Lesley. Wishing you and Jan a terrific time at Telford.

    Didn't know about the Parkinsons Awareness Month or these Cornflower seeds, but as my Dad had Parkinsons, I'm off to investigate.

    Can't wait to hear all about Telford.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx
