Carousel Notes.....

I went to a Stampin' UP! Training day yesterday in Reading. We meet up with the most amazing Demonstrators. Gosh! If you haven't been to or held a home workshop yet, You must.

You can find your nearest Demonstrator by clicking on the Stampin Up Website on the left hand side of my blog and go under the Demonstrator Finder.

I was roped into doing a demonstration on a Product from the Stampin Up Catalogue. The Carousel notes come in a pack of 12, 4 Pretty in Pink, 4 So Saffron and 4 Mellow Moss, plus you get 12 gorgeous Chocolate Chip envelopes to match.

An easy way of making a special card is by joining two of the carousel notes together.

Just score a line between 6 scallops on the left. Join together with another Carousel note by using two jumbo eyelets. Tie a bow using the taffeta ribbon. This one is using the Live Your Dream stamp set.

I decorated the lid of a gift box with another one of the Carousel notes. Score a line every 6 Scallops, you will end up with a scored square in the centre of the Carousel note. Use double sided tape to add to the top of the box to match the card. The Pretties kit was used to add some flowers on top.

This is the Mellow Moss Carousel Notes. Close your eyes now if you don't want to think about Christmas Cards!!!! hee hee The stamp set is Scandinavian Season, stamped in Always Artichoke and coloured in with Mellow Moss marker. Dazzling Diamonds glitter was added to sections of the Tree.

The box to match is similar to the Live Your Dream one. Just two lids instead of a bigger box.

You can see the score lines better here between each 6 scallops.

Don't forget the inside!!

This one is using the So Saffron Carousel notes and the A Good Egg stamp set.

The chocolate easter eggs were put in one of our large cello bags and a carousel note was wrapped around to make a cone shape. I held it in place with some double sided tape.

The paper is Tea party designer paper. I coloured in the chick with the Barely Banana SU Marker pen.

I will be changing the ribbon on these for my sons Easter Egg hunt at Easter - Eyes rolling!!! He's 15 and still wants an Easter Egg hunt. We are always in a caravan at Easter - How many places can you hide Chocolate Eggs in a Caravan........Tons of places. Keeps him busy for hours!

Check back tomorrow for a Tutorial on the Flight of the Butterfly Carousel Note Card.
Thanks for looking,
