Catalog Launch Party

Just think … What would it be like?

Hello Stampin’ friends ~

Today I want to share with you how it feels to be in my shoes when Stampin’ Up! shares an announcement …

This is the actual announcement from Stampin’ Up! ….

Holiday catalog is coming…

and have we got an event for you!

It’s time to pop some popcorn and get ready for three amazing holiday catalog videos that we’ll share over three days. So tell all your demonstrator friends to save the date and get excited to see new products. You will be able to watch the videos anytime you want, but you won’t regret watching them the moment they post at 1:00 PM (MT) each day. There’s a prize patrol for each video, and you have 24 hours from the time the videos post to enter before the prize patrol is closed.

  • You can only view the videos if you are logged in on the demonstrator website. Requiring you to log in ensures that only demonstrators will have access to this exclusive launch event.
  • You will have 24 hours from the time the videos post to participate in prize patrols. You may participate by completing the survey at the end of each video.
  • Don’t forget, the things you see in these launch videos are top secret. Please do not share anything from these videos until the catalog goes live on September 1.


Would you like to get in on the party?

YOU CAN … and you can get the deal of deals when you do! Join my team of Star’s and the Stampin’ Up! family before the 25th of July and start poppin’ that popcorn!

More from OnStage plus Cutest Swap Card Ever!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sorry for the delay … I am having so much trouble with my computer 😦  I just hope it lasts until I can get a new one in January.

I have more from our OnStage event and a cute really cute swap card! Let’s begin with a special invitation I received in the mail before I even left for the event …


This invitation was for the “Center Stage” event that was held on Friday night. It is for demonstrators who have reached the title of Silver Elite (formerly Manager) and above. We pick up our bags which include a great planner, pens, a little gift and a brand new stamp set that will be in the upcoming “Occasions Catalog”.


I have much to be grateful for … especially the wonderful stampin’ friends (customers) I have become to know during my journey. They support me and help me to achieve my goals. Without them, I would not be me … YOU have become that special to me.

We spend the evening getting some wonderful training from Stampin’ Up! and fellow demonstrators. We also get to catch up with old friends and make some new ones …


This is a picture of one of my table mates, she took the same! After our training we were treated to a wonderful dinner of Prime Rib and the most decadent cheesecake I ever had! Yum, Yum.

After dinner they made some announcements and shared information about upcoming events – Our next OnStage and surprised us with an awesome gift …


I LOVE THIS BAG … this one is definitely in my top 3 bags ever!! Stampin’ Up! gifts us with some really awesome bags!! You can’t see the tag but it says … “Because SPOILING YOU is so much fun”. I am so grateful to be associated with a company who truly rewards the efforts of their demonstrators! I’ve worked in many different types of employment and have never been treated like I am at Stampin’ Up!  When was the last time your boss sent you on a cruise?

Curious … drop me a line, I’d be happy to share the benefits with you. Take it for a test drive … there is no obligation to stay when you join us, but I’m sure you’ll want to.  When we chat, I can share with you all of the benefits offered to my group … Star’s by Design! Here are just a few that were waiting for them at our table when they arrived …


Have you noticed? Magic happens when Stampin’ Up! Staff and demonstrators get together for an event. WHY? Like stamps and ink, cardstock and punches, cellophane bags and treats … some things are just better together.  Will you join us in April 2017?  CLICK HERE (then Join Now) if your ready to join us!

When you join our Stampin’ Up! family of Star’s … I’ll give you a call to welcome you, and answer any questions or concerns you many have.  First two to join us, will receive one of the lovely little Note Books I just gave my stars.

Now for that totally cute swap card …


I told you it was really cute! Swapping is another part of our Stampin’ Up! events that we love. I really would love to share this opportunity with you.

Thank you so much for hangin’ on till I got my computer working! It is appreciated.

Have a wonderful day ~


OnStage with Stampin’ Up!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am back from a fun weekend away with my downline and fellow demonstrators as we attended one of the OnStage events hosted by Stampin’ Up! These events are like mini Conventions.  They host these all over the world and we were lucky enough to have them host one in Madison, WI.


Our Saturday event is open to all demonstrators and I spent my Saturday with some of my fun and fabulous downline! It was so great to see these ladies again and catch up. We’re spread all over Wisconsin but still find ways to connect.

From Left to Right ….Becky, Brenda (back) Debi (front), Kathy, Connie & Cheri.  Love those smiles … I am blessed with to have such a great group. I wish all of them could have came.  We all send our prayers to Mary Kate who is currently battling breast cancer.


I love to spoil my downline a bit so I made sure we had some sweet treats like Chocolate Stars (Our group name is Star’s by Design) and some Trail mix to nibble on. I also had some cute gifts … I’ll share those with you tomorrow. Not all the decorations were mine, Stampin’ Up! likes to spoil us too, more about that tomorrow as well …


We learned about the upcoming Occasions catalog and Sale-a-bration (not to far away!) and got to see some of the new products up close and even play with them!! Just one of the great perks of being a demonstrator! We are not allowed to share this yet, but it won’t belong before we’ll be sharing samples with you.

Until then, I will share two cute cards with you that Debi received when swapping. I wish I had time to make up my own swaps this year, because the Midwest is the greatest place to swap … many talented demonstrators!


Nuts for you and Swirly Swiggles were used to create this swap and the second card features the “Spotlighting” technique … Love this card!


Thank you for checking back and hanging out until I returned.  I will be back tomorrow with more fun from Madison and our OnStage event.

If you’ve ever wondered what it was like, or what you need to become a demonstrator … shoot me an e-mail ( I’d be happy to answer any of your questions or concerns, and what I provide for my downline members. CLICK HERE for information from Stampin’ Up.

Have an awesome day!


Star’s by Design On Stage!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yes … I took the day off yesterday. I had a busy week and ended it spending time with some wonderful friends, my downline. On Friday I told you that I was going to the Center Stage event and Saturday the On Stage event hosted by Stampin’ Up!

Five of my downline members were able to attend the event, and it was wonderful spending time with them again. You know me, I love to see my friends face to face, easier to hug!

Stars Team

I’ll start with the bottom left and work my way across the group … First we have Connie (left), Becky (center), and Cheryl (right) … Second row is Debi (left) me (center) and Brenda (right). They look great! Me? I was a bit tired … I drank 3 cups of coffee at dinner the night before (silly me) I was up till 5 am. Only 1-1/2 hours of sleep but I wouldn’t have missed this gathering for the world!!

We’re always looking for more fun lovin’ friends who love to stamp too, to join our group! Be a Star!

Join SU

Wow … lots of fun and so much information was shared. Let me just say … YOU are going to LOVE the new Occasions Catalog! So many fascinating new items … I can barely sit still and will be working on a fabulous presentation for you (as soon as I can).  Right now we are not allowed to show anyone.


Until I can share the new Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs with you … I will continue to give you great ideas for the awesome products and stamp sets in the Holiday catalog!!

I announced last week that Stampin’ Up! was going to post a retirement list for the Holiday catalog …


We’re saying goodbye to retiring products from the holiday catalog; but before we do, we’re giving everyone an opportunity to order their favorites. Retiring products will only be available until January 4, or while supplies last, so now’s a great time to order them before they’re gone!


Dates: November 16, 2015-January 4, 2016 (or while supplies last)

Holiday  Catalog  Retiring List
These lists are updated daily to show the availability of all retiring products.  To download the PDF for a quick reference click the link on the “Side Bar” and you will always get the updated list. It looks like this …


OK … that is a lot of news to handle in one day! Please let me know if you have any questions … I’d love to help. If you are interested in any of the products from the Holiday catalog, I would suggest buying early … or they may not be available later.

Thanks for joining me today …

I hope your Monday is a great one!
