Nelson Extravaganza: Saturday 21st March 2015


This past Saturday, I taught at Nelson Extravaganza, to 39 lovely ladies.
"Nelson Extravaganza" is new to Nelson, this is the first time we met, however we will be holding 3 Extravaganzas this year.
I taught my project, a clean and elegant "Thank You Card With Emboss Resist", along with 4 other teachers, Sally Rice, Sally Robertson, Jacque Williams and Rebecca Palmer ...

"Butterfly Tiny Treat Box" by Sally Robertson


"Sheltering Tree Note Card Set" by Jacque Williams


"Braided Card & Mini Treat Bag" by Rebecca Palmer

I was really looking forward to sharing my crafting knowledge, and had a really enjoyable day with some very lovely ladies.
One of the bonuses of a day like this is, that it is "bring a plate for a shared lunch", these ladies are very talented home cooks {one is even the Food Editor for "New Zealand House and Garden" magazine} and here's a glance of the yummy food I selected for my lunch ... 


We held the Extravaganza at Waimea Old Boys Rugby Club, and here are my tables all ready to go ...



My guests had a packet gift wrapped at their place setting, with the Annual Catalogue, Occasional Catalogue, Sale-A-Bration brochure, and 2 Sale-A-Bration flyers, along with their personalised name tag, which matches mine ... 




and I had on display all of my recent Classes ...



I was very prepared, as I had 50 packs cut, 2 weeks in advance ...


And had also pre-cut all the butterflies - yes I cut 100 butterflies the previous weekend {8 days in advance} - and it only took 4 hours!!! ...


I was so pleased that I had done so much prep in the preceding weeks, as I ended up with JorjaRose at A&E {Accident and Emergency - Emergency Room} twice this week! 
She fell off of the Flying Fox at school on Wednesday, and after Wednesday's visit to A&E, she had a splint put on her left arm/wrist with a possible break to the small bones, but unable to see on the x-ray. Told to re-visit the GP in a weeks time if she was still in pain. 
She was in so much pain {more so than when she did the Buckle Fracture to her right wrist}, that I took her back to A&E on Friday, and had also noticed a very large bruise to her right temple. Also mentioned how she flinched anytime you got near her right elbow {was previously band-aided by receptionist at school}, turns out after x-rays were taken she has chipped her elbow with particles floating. So now she has a splint on her left wrist and a sling on her right arm + slight concussion!!!


The project I designed for Nelson Extravaganza is a clean and elegant  "Thank You" card with Emboss Resist ...

Techniques covered are Emboss Resist, Embossing, 3 Layer Stamping, Scoring with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Die Cutting, Negative Detail, Punching {I had all three Tag Topper Punches to choose from - Angled Tag Topper, Ornate Tag Topper and Scalloped Tag Topper}, and Layering with Dimensionals/Vellum/Cardstock.


Embellishments included Pearl Basic Jewels, rosette trim from the Artisan Embellishment Kit, and Pink Pirouette Seam Binding.
Stamp sets featured are "Painted Petals" and "Lotus Blossom".

On the card insert, the "Lotus Blossom" is stamped in Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride and Blushing Bride stamped off once. Followed by Clear Stampin' Embossing Powder.



Wah lah ...  "Thank You Card With Emboss Resist" done!
