Well this last weekend was full-on fun! Saturday we had our Sold-Out Auckland Extravaganza, and the team and I had a super day presenting five projects to our guests. We hope those who attended had a fabulous afternoon, too!
Sunday I shot down to Hamilton and taught with some of the Hamilton demonstrators at the Hamilton Extravaganza. Both were great days with left us leaving tired, but happy.
Andrea Schweer, Vanita Hurbuns and myself taught this cute Fishbowl Card the last two days using the new Fishin Around stamp:
We had fun and games working out how to get the water to be sealed water tight, but I think my dear husband found the trick! (photos on my Facebook page!).
You will need the Sweet Treat Cups, water, hot glue, and a piece of acetate to put on the back of the cup
Tips for getting a watertight seal:
1. Make sure the glue is really hot (hot glue!)
2. Use a heavier acetate to seal on the back of the sweet treat cup
3. Press down firmly to remove any extra trapped air in the cup
4. Turn it over (right side facing you) and press down around the rim to remove any air bubbles in the glue. You may need to use a spoon or similar so you don't burn fingers.
The ladies had a lot of fun making this one! It's like eye candy! And some did this up with more black accents annd made it a bit more masculine. It all looked great.
Our next Extravaganzas are:
Nov 2 Auckland
Nov 3 Hamilton
Nov 9 Tauranga
We'd love to have you there!
