what an amazing day I had yesterday...the craft room was full of beautiful ladies who came along to my Stampin' Bingo Catalogue Launch Party and we had a ball!
We played 6 Bingo Games, the balls rolled and numbers called very professionally by the awesome Meg McClare ( thank you Meg), there were door prizes, Bingo Prizes, 3 make n takes, yummy morning tea, some stamping exercises, product displays a delicious lunch and more!
As shown before in my other blog, this is the first make n take project. The super cute Kangaroo is from the Animal Outing Stamp Set and the card bases already come with the wonderful coloured background ready to go - from Delightfully Detailed Note Cards & Envelopes. You may be able to just see the Pearlized Doilies poking out from underneath the strips of DSP from Love What You Do. The greeting was from Love What You Do Stamp Set.
The second make n take was one of the 4 beautiful cards from the Notes of Kindness Card Kit (p.7). Ohhh I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this kit! And I think everybody enjoyed creating such a quick and sweet card.
The third and final card was a more masculine (as per request from one of my lovely helpers and customer Mrs Michelle S - otherwise known as Michelle Sauerwald). And I am pleased she asked. This card was CASED and altered to suit a quick but effective card to complete during our event.
OOps! you may notice that I have placed my greeting a little mixed up...sounds like something YODA would say from Star Wars!
I used my most favourite bundle - Rooted in Nature! And yes, us Aussies have had a little giggle at the name of the Stamp Set, and a few jokes - but that makes the name all the memorable! Plus, because this bundle is so fantastic - no one really minds!
A spot of morning tea...homemade Lemon Slice, Rose Flavoured Meringues and Red Velvet & Raspberry Cupcakes topped with a mini Orio.
Ok, so what's in the Goodie Bags? Well everyone received a welcome Goodie Bag upon arrival which included a Catalogue (unless they already had received one from me earlier),
they also got a Colour Swatch which has the whole complete colour revamp family.
I thought this would be helpful and useful to have the colours in person for future reference.
At every placing on the table, there was a new Stampin' Pad - all new or returning colours. These were used for the Bingo games, and were to take home.
I handed out a sweet writing note pad covered with Love What You Do DSP and a pretty pen. The initial on every pad was a lovely idea I got from the talented Katrina Duffle who made these as part of our swaps for Onstage in Sydney 2018.
These large gift boxes (designed by Pootles) held ribbon samples, a bookmark, some lucky door prize discs, the colour swatches & a tiny jar of sequins. I stamped the Statement of My Heart stamp (limited Edition) on the top.
I just couldn't resist putting these tiny jars into the Goodie Bag. I just love the Iridescent Sequins - so useful for quick little accents on my work.
I really like the Love What You Do DSP, the pearlized side and the other side, both make great backgrounds for beautiful cards, 3D items and Scrapbooking. I decided to create a bookmark for everyone.
And a bookmark dance!
I forgot to take a picture, but I had a jar full of the new Colour Stampin' Write Markers that everyone could pick a colour to go into their Goodie Bag.
Everybody is busy concentrating during a Bingo Game...sometimes I'm sure you could hear a pin drop!
During the day, people stamped the 10 in Colours onto a bookmark for future reference.
If anyone knows me well - they know I love birds ( ornaments are throughout my house and my garden!) AND I love pink. So, as a thank you to my ladies who came on the day as well as those who couldn't' but purchased a Goodie Bag any way, this was my special thank you to them...from my heart to yours. x
Thanks for visiting,
loves & hugs,
