It’s A Boy!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday evening while I was cutting my cardstock for my upcoming retreat, I got the phone call … My granddaughter was going to the hospital to have her baby!! So excited, it wasn’t long before then second call to say he has arrived.

Meet Khari  … 7-lbs 2 oz and 18 inches …

I even got to feed him already!! So needless to say … I did not finish my card so I’ll be back tomorrow to share it with you then.  Sometimes life just happens when it’s ready!

Thanks for checking back with me.

Have a wonderful day.

Sentimental Rose …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share with you a video showcasing the Sentimental Rose kit. The Sentimental Rose kit makes 9 cards and envelopes and includes 1 acetate box. Watch the video to get started making these distinctly beautiful cards—which are perfect for springtime stamping.

Distinktive stamps are the latest innovation here at Stampin’ Up!, and the Paper Pumpkin team loves them so much that we decided to give you two of these very special stamps in our April kit. Distinktive stamps give you photorealistic-style images in one stamp, and as you can see, the result is stunning.

Next month we have an exclusive kit designed by our Co-Founder Shelli Gardner… Order by May 10th if you’d like to join our Paper Pumpkin Party!! Options for ordering are below.

Thank you for joining me today … stop back tomorrow as I will be sharing some alternative to this kit. Plus, keep an eye out for a sneak peek product!!

Till then, have a wonderful day, and I’ll see you tomorrow.

We have several options for purchasing Paper Pumpkin, try one and take it out for a test drive …

Perennial Essence Suite

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share with you another peak into the new catalog. Oh … the new catalog! Coming to a mailbox near you, or join me at an upcoming event and pick one up, either way … they should be here in 4 – 6 weeks.

So as we turn the pages of this catalog, you will find the beautiful Perennial Essence Product Suite.  Stampin’ Up! did something new this year … instead of writing in “all” the items in the suite that you felll in love with, you can now just write in a single number and get it all.  Plus, the bundle numbers are still available or purchase your items separately.

I’m going to share three cards today, we will start with the basic of the three …

The beautiful Floral Essence stamp set is laced with pretty flowers and wonderful greetings, and coordinates with the Perennial Flower punch.  I hope you also noticed the stunning designer paper; Perennial Essence with it’s Hand-painted impressionistic imagery.

Our second image as the first has stamped onto the Perennial Essence Vellum cardstock and punched out to create these lovely flowers which adorn the hand stamped images on the whisper white.

Here we added another flower and the bakers twine. This one (above) is the Make -n- Take that we did at our OnStage event.  Now if you really want to see how you can jazz it up … just look at this!

On our final card we used the beautiful vellum instead of the cardstock, it gives you a warmer tone to the card.  All three are beautiful … what level of stamping do you do?  Beginner, casual or an avid stamper … have to have it all!  Yup, that would be me! That’s why I became a demonstrator, wanted the discount.  Stayed because of all the wonderful relationships I have built

I hope you enjoyed the cards today, more for you tomorrow.

Have yourself a fabulous Friday!

OnStage 2019 Insights and Sneak Peeks …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am back today with some more fun from our OnStage event and more sneak peeks! I hope you got your “Retirement Lists” downloaded from my blog yesterday, let me know if you have any questions … I just want to remind you that some items to very fast, and when they are gone, they are gone.

OK … On to the FUN!!! On Monday I shared some insight into our leaders event “CenterStage” so today I want to share with you the main event that I get to share with my team!  Since I registered the day before, I got the chance to set up our table while my team registered …

Stampin’ Up! already had some “fun” on our tables, clip boards with some fun games to play and a box full of goodies for our Make -n- Takes!  You will notice a few extra goodied that I set up for my team (and the ladies that were at the same table… I brought treats for all).

The treats that I brought also had a message for my team: The chocolate “Stars” represent their dreams and goals, the “carrots” represent the incentives available while working towards your goals, the chocolate “coins” represent the rewards received when they achieve their goals … the “Star” lollipop represents our team “The Star’s by Design” and the mints are because I think my team members are worth a “mint”!  The chocolate pretzels? Well those are just a treat … because they are worth it!!

Let me introduce you to the Star’s team members who were able to join me … We missed the rest of our team who could not make this event (but there will be another in November … and we’d like you to join us too!)

From Left to Right: Becky, me, Kathy and Connie

At OnStage we get a bag (you can see it on the table… a NEW In-Color) filled with goodie; a stamp set, pens, a journal, a punch, some file folders and more … awesome stuff for our business/hobby.  During the day we watch great demonstrations by our fellow demonstrators highlighting new products AND we get to play with some of the new stuff ourselves with Make -n- Takes.

Here is Connie and one of our table mates, Jane …

Well now … I can’t tease you with pictures of us doing Make -n- Takes and not show you at least one of the cards we made.  This one is from the new “Bird Ballad” product suite. A suite is a grouping of products that coordinate and will take the guess work out of what you need to create projects with the core stamp set.

This product suite brings nature to your doorstep with these sweet birds, and the designer paper has a soft watercolor effect. Here is our Make -n- Take …

The birds on the branch is too cute and reminds me of a bunch of friends gathering, my coloring could be improved but I was quite happy that I actually did my Make -n- Takes this time. My favorite … the soft blue background and the hand colored birds and blossoms on the designer paper is so pretty.

I will be back tomorrow with more sneak peeks and samples. Let me just say, this catalog does not disappoint! See you tomorrow.

Thanks so much for joining me today.
