CenterStage Fun at Epcot And Day 1 at OnStage!

Hi everyone, I have been so busy getting ready for our huge 30th anniversary celebration for Stampin’ Up! but I have a little time before I head to the airport so thought I would share some photos with you. This was one of my gifts that I made for my team who came down to Orlando with me. I found the font online it’s called Waltograph. I knew we would be getting a new bag and wanted them to have bag tags.

this is my friend Sue, so glad to run into you! We used to be in a blog hop together, thanks for the hug my friend!

On Wednesday we headed right to check in to get our wristbands, bags and gifts (thank you Susan for taking my things back to the hotel for me!) and hop on a bus to head to Epcot, Stampin’ Up! gifted us a free day at Epcot and had a special dessert and announcements in the evening right before the fireworks. It was so magical to spend that day with my friend and downline, Lisa, (It was her promotion in August that triggered my promotion to gold), and it was a true blessing to be recognized and rewarded for that while we were here. Two of my downline, Tiffany and Amye coordinated to be at Epcot that day it was great to catch up with them while we were there and so many other demonstrators celebrating too!

Thank you Lisa for my golden Minnie ears, I will treasure them! We had a wonderful meal in Mexico for lunch, and then in morocco for dinner. Thank you for your generosity!

We received so many wonderful gifts from Stampin’ Up! they had fabulous stamping projects for us to make during our lunch time. They had a timeline of all 30 years of the Stampin Up company around the room, it was great to read about all the milestones.

we are so excited about the new products that will be coming in the occasions catalog, and the new Sale-a-Bration offerings are fantastic, you will love them all! These two new catalogs will launch on January 3rd.

Well that is it for today, be sure to check back tomorrow when I will have another post about Day 2!

I would love to read your comments!

Thanks so much!

I bet you didn’t realize we still have a good variety of Christmas stamps available in the 2015-16 Annual Catalog- pages 67-72. I am going to be looking at my calendar and will start to plan my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack classes, let me know if you’d like to attend- looking at dates in September and October. Wouldn’t it be nice to have all your Christmas cards done before Thanksgiving this year? (me too- it’s my goal!). Thanks for stopping by today- I appreciate you visiting my blog. I love reading your comments, I would love to know if you received the Holiday catalog yet.

If you need anything (Stampin’ Up! supply-wise) I am putting in an order this week, and/or you can always shop my online store and please use this hostess code: YCQVVKZB

I really appreciate all of your support, thanks so much! (Don’t forget our monthly craft kit in the mail – called Paper Pumpkin- is still 1/2 off until September 10th!)

I hope you have a nice day!

Beautiful Swap Cards (part 1)

Hi Stamping Friends!

I hope all of you are well, I haven’t had time to blog this past week as my dear old dad had a terrible fall, broke his hip, and then while in the hospital recovering from hip surgery, the doctors detected heart problems. We are so very thankful for the excellent care he has been receiving at Ellis Hospital, and we are hoping they move him over to Sunnyview Rehabilitation tomorrow morning (just waiting for insurance okay). Thank you to all my friends, downline, customers and family who have been praying for my dad, and my family, at this difficult time. It has also been hard on my mom, but luckily we all live very close and are able to juggle work, and hospital visits. Thank you for your positive thoughts and prayers- we could feel them all!

I have had to cancel lots of classes as I am totally zapped (energy wise) and don’t have time for prep and pulling it off. Plus some kits are still on back-order. For this week, I’m just doing my clubs (which were all ready before I headed to Rochester last weekend for my great-Aunt’s memorial service) and one class at the senior center. Otherwise, I’m postponing all other classes until probably September. I will send out emails to those impacted. Thank you for your understanding. Family first, right?

Since I haven’t created anything new in a while, I thought I would share some of the swaps I received at Convention… I hope you enjoy them!

Inspire.Create.Share.2014. Post 6 More Fun!

Are you enjoying the photos from Convention?? I hope so!  Here are a few more random, but favorite shots… it really was a magical week and I had the time of my life. Stampin’ Up! had an “After Party” (following the Awards Ceremony) and it was a County Fair themed night- super fun!

Val, Jamie, Amye and I at the beginning of the party.

How cute are the mason jars of wildflowers and burlap table runners?? loved it!

IMG_0012

 

They had a mechanical bull!!! Too bad I was wearing a dress, darn…. like that was the only thing holding me back 😉

 

IMG_1493

 

 

twinkling lights, a rustic old cowboy hat…
IMG_1494

vintage suitcase with the word “CARDS” in glimmer paper (how cute would that be for a party to collect the card??)

 

 

IMG_1495

 

I wonder where they got all the wildflowers?? so sweet!

 

IMG_1496

 

Stampin’ Up! sure knows how to coordinate their decor- don’t they??? How sweet is this little country side bar?

IMG_1509

 

And there was an AMAZING country band- “Drive” and there was Country Line Dancing!!

IMG_1498

 

IMG_1499

 

IMG_1513No one wanted to leave… the band was THAT GOOD!

IMG_1491

 

 

 

Oh, and they had yummy fair food- lemonade, funnel cakes, popcorn and ice cream~

IMG_1492

 

 

There was a Stampin’ Up! product give away- it started as a “fishing game” but there was a malfunction- so some of us were given a product. I got a roll of chocolate chip chevron ribbon!

 

It was a very magical and fun night!

 

Well, today is a busy day- off to my friend Elizabeth’s son Matthew’s graduation party up north. Tomorrow hope it’s nice and can go to our local county fair- fingers crossed it is a nice day. Here’s hoping you have a magical weekend and THANKS so much for stopping by my blog!  What is YOUR favorite memory of The Fair?? Leave a comment- if there is enough interest, I might run a comment contest!

Thanks!

Inspire.Create.Share.2014- Post 5-The Make-and-Takes were Amazing!! (Spoiler Alert for September Paper Pumpkin!)

Hi Stamping Friends!

Are you enjoying all the photos from Convention?? It’s going to be really hard to decide what ones to print for my Project Life album I’m going to make, and I’m also thinking that while MDS Professional Printing is 20% off this month, I might as well make a little brag book of the trip too, right? Decisions, decisions- so hard sometimes! Actually- that was a problem I encountered in Salt Lake City last week- too many decisions to make! What classes to attend, where to eat, what sessions to go to?? It was kinda overwhelming at times, and a few times I found myself almost frozen with indecision- “someone else decide- I’ll go with the flow” soon became my mantra- for it was easier and helped me stay calm. I think I’ll be better prepared next year- as I’ll know what the huge crowds will feel like, and I hope to be in much better shape next year- working on it day by day!

Here are some of the new products we were able to play with, as well as some of the projects we were able to make:

IMG_0061

 

This duo was actually made by Amye (as I forgot elements of my kit back in the hotel so I didn’t make this card set at Convention), do you like it? All our stampers attending our Stamp-a-Stack event on Monday night will get to make one version of this card- the simple version on the left or the stepped up version on the right (with some minor substitutions for the clip)

 

IMG_9875 IMG_9876 IMG_9877 IMG_9878

 

I don’t know about you- but I am super duper excited about the September Paper Pumpkin kit! See those cute burlap bags, orange sequin trim, mini clothespins, and stamp set?! This is going to be a popular one for sure- and hey- if you’re not a subscriber yet and you want to be sure to get this great set- sign up by August 10th and you’ll get the  August kit (we also got to see it but not play with it- it is an awesome versatile birthday set) and September kit for HALF OFF (new subscribers).

Remember that I have a Paper Pumpkin Thank You Party- I will run my report each month, I’ll see who purchased the monthly kit- and then you will receive an email from me with the details of the Free Party! Next one is August 20th!! (You will need to have signed up or pre-ordered your kit by August 10th to get the invite for this one).  What do you think of the little burlap treat bags?? Cute right? If you don’t celebrate Halloween, there is a stamp that says “Eat Something Sweet” with this set. Amye, Jamie and I decided to make ours all up differently to show you the versatility of the stamps and stickers that come in this kit!  I will be having a Paper Pumpkin Party in September- right now I’m looking at 9/24, but I do want to wait a bit and see if Wednesdays will work for my subscribers.

IMG_9941 IMG_9942 IMG_9943

 

Amye, Val and I went to a “Master Class” with the Watercolor Wonder Simply Created Kit that will premiere in the new Holiday Catalog on August 28th. I am planning a class with this kit- it is so versatile and awesome!!

Stampin’ Up! is having a little contest on Pinterest and the card that gets the most “Pins” and “Likes” is going to win some amazing prizes- hope you would consider helping me out by voting for my card:

If you already “Pinned” and “Liked” it- many thanks! If you want to “Send” the card to anyone to vote-I’d be happy about that too!

IMG_9982

 

Project Life insert! Love this 6×8″ size!! (I made my  niece a big 12×12″ album for a graduation present, but I can see that this smaller size would be perfect for vacations, special occasions where you aren’t trying to insert 400 photos or more!!)  Notice anything new??? That’s right- we are coming out with a new handheld stapler- and our new Blendabilities markers can color the staples! Talk about coordination!! Love it, so easy to use!

 

IMG_0197

 

This one I’m going to use for my Convention x Project Life x Stampin’ Up! Album!

 

IMG_9983

 

 

These little journals made an appearance in the new Annual Catalog- they come in a two pack! (They used to be in the Paper Pumpkin “Try it Kit” but they decided to just bring over the journals as they were widely popular)! Brandi Barnard taught us several awesome tricks on how to cut this baby in half to make 2 mini notebooks out of one! So cute! Great for anyone in direct sales who needs to keep a notebook in the car to track mileage! Or for you to take to the doctor’s office to jot down notes so you don’t forget what the doctor says to you! (at least that’s how I’m going to use mine!)

 

IMG_0042 IMG_0043

 

Many of you have been asking if Stampin’ Up! was going to introduce any new tools or products, well I’m happy to say that after the huge success of the Envelope Punch Board, we once again teamed up with an awesome company and are launching the new Gift Box Punch Board when our Holiday Catalog goes live on August 28th!! It comes with directions/dimensions to make at least 15 different size boxes from 1 3/4″ x 1 3/4″ x 1 3/4″ (used a 6 x 6″ piece of paper for the one I am holding) all the way up to a 12″ x 12″ piece of paper/card stock to make a 4″ x 4″ x 4″ box. I say “at least 15 size boxes” because I’m sure some genius mathematician or engineer has figured out how to make more than square boxes out of this baby. Want to get your hands on this ASAP?? I am taking “Pre-Orders” for the Gift Box Punch Board- it is $19.95 plus tax/shipping/handling which will be $23.71 total. I am going to accept pre-orders and payment for these up to August 25th (checks and cash will be deposited on 8/26 so the payment is in my account by the date I order- August 28th) – if you want to be sure to get your order in before they run out of stock (remember what happened last year when the Envelope Punch Board launched?? Back order status within the first month)- Let me know if you want “IN” on this new tool!! For everyone who pre-orders this Gift Box Punch Board from me, I have a free class on September 18th where I will teach you all the ways to use your new board! If you can’t make the class- you can make arrangments to pick up your punch board and I will email you the PDF tutorial of tips and tricks for using your new tool!

I met these ladies while waiting in line to use the new gift box punch board- they are from Syracuse and Utica, NY! Small world! Hi Marilyn, Jan and Virginia- I hope to stay in touch with you and meet up with you again sometime! You helped the time go by quickly while waiting in line!

 

IMG_1580

Here is a somewhat close up of this awesome new tool in action!

IMG_1581
IMG_1583

I learned an important “tip” from one of the concept artists and an SU employee who has had lots of time to practice with this new tool! Can’t wait to share lots of tips and tricks with you!! Can’t wait to get this in your hands!

 

IMG_1254

 

 

IMG_9925 IMG_9926 IMG_9927 IMG_9928 IMG_9929 IMG_9930

 

 

I also got to color with some experts on Blendabilities! Learned a lot of tips and tricks for using these new alcohol markers! Have planned my reward class for all those who ordered the Blendabilities Bundle deal through me- will email you all to see if the date works for you, stay tuned!

 

wreath framelit

 

Also new in the Holiday Catalog is this amazing bundle! The Wonderous Wreath Stamp Set is in Photopolymer (they explained the strategy behind Photopolymer at convention- it is being used for all the two step stamping or when there will be a need to layer. Also, alphabet stamps are all going to be photopolymer from now on too. They made an announcement that they are going to launch each new monthly set on the 2nd Tuesday of the month and they are going to guarantee availability for at least 6 months! That will help me plan classes and event better- twice the set I purchased sold out before I ever got to use it, but now that won’t happen, yippee!

Notice anything else in this photo above? the Wreath stamp set and framelits will have tabs for ease in lining up- no more time wasted trying to line up the framelits with the stamped image, love it!

 

IMG_0186

 

 

I am going to turn this into a card, will post when done!

 

The rest of these cards were given to me by very generous, friendly demonstrators… I ran out of time and never got my swaps done- and when these kind people found out- they gave me their swaps anyway! WOW- I was just blown away- that is so selfless, and I am deeply grateful to Meg, Kristen, Amanda, Joanne, and Amye for sharing with me! Thanks so much guys- it really means a lot to me! I love these cards!
