My swaps for On Stage 2018 in Birmingham, UK

Hello my friends

I hope you have all had a wonderful week? I've been away for a few days away with my lovely hubby and one of my gorgeous fur babies. We took Dora, our caravan, up north for a little break near Birmingham, primarily because I was attending #OnStage2018, a Stampin' Up! demonstrator only event at The Vox in Resort World near the NEC. We stayed on the Kingsbury Water Park, a Camping & Caravanning Club site, which was perfect with wonderful dog walks along the Birmingham & Fazeley Canal and the numerous lakes. It was wet and windy but we don't mind a bit of rain and saw some amazing rainbows on our walks.

This was the first OnStage I've attended without my lovely upline Victoria and I was bit nervous but my friend Kelly was wonderful and saved me a seat at her table so I was lucky to share the day with her and other members of the Stampin Starfish team - the ladies helped make the day really special. Because Stampin' Up! is celebrating its 30th anniversary, we were spoilt rotten with loads of all attendee giveaways, prize patrol and sneak peeks at the upcoming occasions and sale-abration catalogues. Oh my goodness, I'm going to be broke as I NEED it all!!

Enough waffling, today I wanted to share with you the swaps I made for the event and I was hoping to share all the swaps I received but it's getting late so I'm only going to share mine with you today and will come back later in the week to show you the swaps I received ...... I haven't really had a chance to look through them properly yet.
The first little open top bag contains a little bag of Haribo sweets. I used Share What You Love Specialty DSP cut @ 4" x 9¼" (you get 3 from each 12" x 12" sheet). Score on the long side @ 3¾", 4½" 8¼" and 9" turn 45 and score @ ¼" and 3¼".
For the second sweet bag I used Tranquil Tides DSP cut @ 6" x 6" (you get 4 from each 12" x 12" sheet). Score @ 1½" and 4½" turn 45 and score @ 2½" and 3½".
Here they are together. I think I made about 40 of the them, I was hoping to make more but ran out of time and kept eating the sweets - how bad is that!! Anyway, here's a quick video where I try to show how I made them.
