I’m back with more Samples!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m back!  I took a little break while I was down in Terra Haute, Indiana for a Stampin’ Up! event … our Great Lakes Leadership event.  I went with my friend and fellow demonstrator Gloria Helmbrecht. There we met with other Stampin’ Up! leaders and our Great Lakes Region Manager … Shannon West. We were there to learn more about our business and how to help our downlines, and that is why I was there!

Plus … there was swapping and samples (some of which I will share today) and share more in the upcoming days. Here is a cute display that my new demo friend Michelle made …

Several demonstrators shared their work to create a beautiful display of cards, many from the new 2019-2020 Catalog! And while I’m on that thought … my catalogs will be arriving shortly!! And if you’re a current customer of mine, you’ll have one with your name on it!! If you don’t have a demonstrator and would like a catalog, message me, I’d be honored to include you in my group of stamping friends.

Here is a sampling of bookmarks that someone made (I do not have a name to give the credit to). These were created from the Everythings Rosie Limited time promotion that is currently taking place, again, contact me if you would like more information.

Aren’t they adorable? I am hosting a class on Thursday with this kit. This was a pre-purchase class, so each participant in the class will come in to their kit and the supplies need to create the cards I designed. I’m looking forward to a fun evening with stampin’ friends.

My last share today is a card that a fellow demonstrator made using the new Hostess Stamp Set; New Wonders. I think this is one of the cutest Hostess sets and I just can’t resist getting it for myself!

I hope you enjoyed this little showcase, I’ll be back with more!! There a so many opportunities to connect with fellow demonstrators and stampers, if you are looking to find like minded individuals, new friends … or your “tribe” so to speak, message me … let’s talk.

Have yourself a beautiful day, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow.

Here is the link to purchase the Everything is Rosy product medley … If you purchases this through me before the end of the month when the promotion ends, I will send you a tutorial of all the project we are making in my Everything is Rosy Class! Thank you.

New Catalog Sneak Peek: Follow Your Art

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another sneak peek inside the new Annual catalog for you. I’m going to be sharing one of the Make & Takes that we made at our OnStage event that I attended.  It comes from the new “Follow Your Art” product suite which is perfect for all of my crafting friends ….

Our card highlights some of the items in the Follow Your Art suite … you can see the stamped images; rolls of ribbon, greeting and the button background. you’ll also notice the cute designer series paper.

This product suite is more than just the stamp set and dies bundle which we are used to (which is still an option to purchase and save 10%) but now, with one item number …. you can purchase the entire suite which includes that stamp set, dies, designer paper, embossing folder, embellishment kit, washi tape and more!!  I can’t wait for you to get your catalogs!!

So no matter what your crafting pleasure is, this suite will have something fun for you to enjoy!  Did you notice the little Stampin’ Up! boxes … they are so cute, and what a clever way to give a gift of crafting than in that box.

Make sure to stop back all week, and bring your friends … I will be posting some swap cards, cards designed with the new IN-COLORS and more!

Thank you for sharing a part of your day with me today, I’ll see you tomorrow.

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.
