Yesterday we had the Hamilton Extravaganza. We got close to 100 stampers on the day and everyone who attended had a great time. How our extravaganzas work is, five pairs of demonstrators prepared and taught a project, moving from table to table so at the end of the day everyone who attended took home five lovely creations. I was fortunate to be paired up with Rachael, a very creative demonstrator from Auckland. She came up with this lovely box, which is what we demonstrated on the day.
I found a punch art bluebird on Rochelle Gould's website, which I though was adorable. It uses a large circle punch that we don't have in our Australia/New Zealand catalogue. so I decided to have a go making it using the punches I have available. I started off making one bird for the front of a notepad I was covering. When I decided to add the "friendship" stamp to the bottom of the cover I thought that one little bird looked lonely, so gave him a friend! I have had so many comments about this that I thought I had better post a picture.
