The big reveil... Just how our SA Fiskars Birthday Fun Day Crop went..

Back to fill you all in on the amazing day that we had here on Saturday.
You couldn't have asked for a more perfect day here in Adelaide for our latest Fiskars Crop.

The weather was a perfect 25 degrees... the room looked like it had been set up for a birthday party and everyone was ready and raring to go on the the dot at 10am.

With a cuppa to get us started we started off with our off the page project while everyone was fresh. I had designed an altered birthday clipboard for everyone to make. Using two different paper ranges from Heidi Grace, Orchard and Garden, some embellishments and playing with a variety of Heidi Grace and Fiskars clear stamps, these clipboards were done in no time. Everyone had so much fun making these and made plans to make more for family presents!

Not even the smells of lunch could drag them away from their clipboards... mind you I finally managed to do so... So after filling everyone up on some tasty morsels for lunch and plenty of time spent gas bagging about Fiskars products over lunch.. everyone was ready to get started again very quickly. No time spent lingering over a cuppa that was for sure. Everyone was just so eager to start on the next projects....

So.. while everyone was pulling out their card packs I showed everyone the cards we would be making for the day. With some more amazing products to play with we got started. The afternoon ran smoothly with us getting 3 cards made to start with.. All very different and unique.

We then stopped to grab a cuppa and some tasty morsels that my Mum had kindly spent the last week baking for us... Hummingbird Cake so moist it melt in your mouth, Moomba slice that had a mouth watering lemon icing and Chocolate Fudge Brownies made with REAL CHOCOLATE.... YUM PLUS !! Thanks again Mum for all your hard work from everyone that really enjoyed your sweet treats.. that's for sure!

To wrap up the last part of the day we finished off with the last 3 cards. For the cards we played with the Heidi Grace paper ranges - Vineyard, Inspire Me and Woodlands. The cards for me were so much fun to create and even more fun to teach. Everyone enjoyed seeing different ways to play around with paper ranges and ways of making the papers suit any theme. The Heidi Grace and Fiskars Stamps were as always a huge hit. Everyone asked what ranges the stamps were from and I am sure that their shopping lists grew with each new thing I showed

Everyone left at the end of the day with their heads full of new ideas, their goodie bags full of some amazing items they had made, and their shopping lists full of details for the upcoming shopping trips their were planning to purchase some more Fiskars Products. Everyone left eager to attend the next crop I am already planning for November. They were even wanting to book in straight

I myself had an amazing day, as always. Mind you I did notice from the photos that my darling husband took that I looked very much like I had waddled joys of being pregnant. However despite my state it was so nice to see all the work I had put into the day appreciated and to be able to show people how to use some amazing products that Fiskars had sent me to play with.

So.. I will leave you with a slide show of the day... I myself am heading off to put my feet up after finally getting my house back to normal.

Can't wait to get started on the final ideas for the next crop in November... Last Minute Xmas Ideas...

Till next time...
Thanks for looking...

Michelle :)
