More Portland OnStage November 2019

I ABSOLUTELY love what I do. So I thank my lucky stars every day that I get to share my passion for paper crafting with all of you. About a week before flying to Portland, I found out that I ranked among the top performing Stampin’ Up! demonstrators again this past Stampin’ Up!® year. And I was able to celebrate these achievements on Saturday: #15 in the US for leadership, #15 in the US for recruiting, and #42 overall in the world! Eek! Thank you, thank you, thank you to my team, my customers, my subscribers, my fellow demonstrators, my family and friends, those who work at Stampin’ Up!,…

It was also super exciting to see several of the demonstrators in my group get recognized for some of their achievements as well. We were spread across three tables in Portland (AND across 5 different OnStage locations around the US), so I don’t have photos of everyone. But here are a couple. Ashley Kuphal promoted to Bronze Elite!

I love attending these events and growing my friendships with my team members, but I also love the friendships I’ve made (and continue to make) with so many others at these events. On Friday night I was able to reconnect with Jeanna Tudela. She always has a bright smile and a warm hug for me. We met on my first incentive trip in 2006! She cheered me on for my karaoke contest.

I’ve known of Robyn Cardon for awhile, but we officially connected on a bus ride taking us back to the ship during the Alaskan cruise in July of 2018. She’s such a sweetheart.

Margaret and Leo Van Vliet are two of the kindest people you’ll ever meet. I’ve known them since 2006, too. (That first incentive trip fostered some wonderful friendships.)

Ms Jeanne Ciolli is another ray of sunshine. And this fellow Paper Pumpkin fanatic was an OnStage presenter on Saturday! She did a fantastic job showing off my favorite new products…the Peaceful Poppies Suite. (I’ve got a photo of her projects below.)

And then on Saturday I had a lot of fun helping at the check-in table with these Stampin’ Up! staff members, Jason (JZ) Zarogoza and Sean Galloway. (You can tell we had a lot of laughs.)

And ta-da!!! Look at the stamp set I won…Painted Poppies. Needless to say, I was thrilled. We also got to split up the products from the make-n-takes. So we each took home a few more gifts. Plus each of us received a pack of the new Country Club Designer Paper.

Christmastime Sweetly Swirled

This past Wednesday during my Online Paper Crafting Class on Facebook, I shared new products from the Christmastime is Here Suite which debuted yesterday, November 1st. I shared how to make a 4×4 designer paper layer look wider with creative cutting. (You can apply this layout to many other designer paper patterns, too!) And I demonstrated some simple techniques like die-cutting, heat embossing, and basic card assembly. (Beginners, you CAN do this!)

I uploaded the recorded version of my Facebook Live video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). And then I was able to share it here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), scroll through the close-up photos, check out the products list below the photos, and then let me know if you have any questions.

I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Below are measurements, close-up photos, and a product list for the card I demonstrated (and it’s “twin”).

Turning the Magnolia Lane Cards into Pocket Cards

Some of you may not be aware that Stampin’ Up! has this adorable 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ note card pack available: the Magnolia Lane Small Memories & More Card Pack. It can be found on pages 8 & 9 of the Experience Creativity Brochure or by clicking here to see it in the Online Store.

The Magnolia Lane Small Memories & More Card Pack. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Instead of just making sweet and simple note cards though (which look great!), I had to put my creative twist on them. I came up with this alternate card idea. I kept the base card unfolded and cut to to 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″, layered it with designer paper from the Magnolia Lane pack, put the envelope on top of that as a pocket, and then decorated around flap of the envelope to make it the focal point layer on the card.

Cracker Boxes

Here is a fun treat packaging idea inspired by the English Christmas crackers. These boxes resemble giant candy wrappers but can hold a lot more (depending on the size). I shared how to make these in my Facebook Live broadcast that aired September 24th. And now I’m sharing the photos, directions, measurements, and supplies here today.

The first ones I made with the Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper I basically just CASEd from page 31 in the 2019 Holiday Catalog.

Products I used: See below for a complete list of products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Then I made a few the same size with the See a Silhouette Designer Paper.

Measurements for large cracker box:

  • Designer paper
    • 8-3/4″ x 9″ scored parallel to the long side at 1-3/4″, 3-1/2″, 5-1/4″ and at 7″
  • Ribbon for bows
    • 12-14″ (two pieces – one for each end)

Directions for large cracker box:

  • After scoring paper, fold on creases and connect the two end panels together with two long strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive to form the rectangular prism. (Flatten to connect evenly.)
  • While still flattened, fully insert small ornament punch from the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack. Line up score line going through the center of the paper with the center of the ornament, and punch. Do this at both ends.
  • Open and flatten on the other crease lines, then repeat the step above.
  • Insert treat or candy.
  • Use Blends marker to color ribbons.
  • Tie ribbons around the punched areas of each end to cinch box shut. (There will be a small gap at each end, but don’t tighten ribbon beyond or you may tear the paper.)
  • Add any other decorations (stamped or punched images) if you wish.
  • Storage area of this box size is about 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″ x 4-3/4″.

After making these large ones, I decided to see how I could alter these measurements to work with a 6″ x 6″ piece of designer paper so I could get 4 boxes from one full sheet of 12″ x 12″ rather than just one.

They are smaller of course, but still a good size!

You’ll notice that the ribbon length is shorter for the smaller box, but that’s only because I tied knots instead of bows.

Measurements for small cracker box:

  • Designer paper
    • 6″ x 6″ scored parallel to the long side at 1-3/8″, 2-3/4″, 4-1/8″ and at 5-1/2″
  • Ribbon for knots
    • 5-6″ (two pieces – one for each end)

Directions for small cracker box:

  • After scoring paper, fold on creases and connect the 1/2″ section to the last panel on the other end using a long strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive to form the rectangular prism. (Flatten to connect evenly.)
  • While still flattened, fully insert 1″ Circle Punch. Line up score line going through the center of the paper with the center of the circle, and punch. Do this at both ends.
  • Open and flatten on the other crease lines, then repeat the step above.
  • Insert treat or candy.
  • Use Blends marker to color ribbons.
  • Tie ribbons around the punched areas of each end to cinch box shut. (There will be a small gap at each end, but don’t tighten ribbon beyond or you may tear the paper.)
  • Add any other decorations (stamped or punched images) if you wish.
  • Storage area of this box size is about 1-3/8″ x 1-3/8″ x 2-1/2″.

World Card Making Day is this Saturday, October 5th. This is a special day of the year to celebrate and create. Stampin’ Up! would love for our paper crafters to be a part of this special celebration by then making the following week (October 7-12) World Card Sending Week. They have sent out a challenge to our demonstrators to send 50,000 cards that week—that’s about one per demonstrator, but of course our customers’ cards count too! So report back to me to let me know when you’ve mailed out a hand-crafted card during that week. I’ll keep a tally, and then I’ll report our amount sent to Stampin’ Up! (Personally I think we can surpass this goal.)

Today I have for you a 12″ x 12″ scrapbook page spread focused on family/ancestral photos as the theme with Dia de los Muertos as its inspiration. Dia de los Meurtos (Day of the Dead) is a celebrated October 31 – November 2 and is a time to celebrate, pray for, and remember loved ones who have passed away. Common symbols for the holiday are the skull and skeletons which is why this paper pumpkin kit put this idea in my head. Flowers are important, too. And the colors are bright and vivid. So of course I brought in the Brights pack of cardstock. These colors are amazing against the black background!

  • Use the Basic Black Dark Blends Marker to draw on eyes and noses.
  • Layer the Basic Gray photo mats onto the coordinating Whisper White pieces using SNAIL.
  • Die-cut LOTS of flowers and leaves in a variety of colors.
  • Die-cut the letters for your title.
  • Color the bones of your skeletons.
  • Adhere the Basic Black Cardstock pieces to the 12×12 Poppy Parade page bases. But don’t add adhesive close to the edges. This way when it comes time to trim up the floral die-cuts along the edges, it will be a bit easier to get at them.
  • Adhere layered photo mats using SNAIL.
  • Adhere skulls, tags and hands using SNAIL.
  • Layout the floral pieces, skeletons and letters for the page title. Then sponge a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue across the back of each piece, and one by one add them to the page.

Both kits make it easy for you to add a handmade, personal touch to your holiday giving—without a lot of fuss. It’s Christmas made easy with Paper Pumpkin! The October 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit makes ten 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ cards and includes envelopes. The November 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit makes 24 holiday-themed gift tags of 4 various sizes and designs. Both kits include coordinating colors: Early Espresso, Pool Party, Poppy Parade, and Shaded Spruce. The October and November kits coordinate; however, each kit is all-inclusive and can stand alone.

So Proud Of You

My son, Luke had his postponed hernia surgery yesterday. (Some of you may recall that he was originally scheduled for July 18 but came down with a fever the night before.) He wasn’t excited to have the procedure done, but he was a brave kiddo the whole way. I was so proud of him!

Proud of my kiddo. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

It was laparoscopic surgery, so he just has a few small incisions in the abdomen. And though he will be limited on activities for about a month, the healing should be much easier than it could have been had they done a larger incision.

The surgeon and hospital staff were wonderful at the University of Minnesota. And we were very grateful that they took such good care of him. In fact Dr. Segura even found another small hernia during the operation and repaired that at the same time. Bonus! 😁

Come see what I share on my blog… #stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

My project today is an easy-to-make card that features the Royal Peacock Stamp Set. I sent this card to a team member. But the message goes so well with how I’m feeling about my son, that it made sense to share it today.

The Noble Peacock Suite is one of my favorites in the 2019-20 Annual Catalog. I love the stunning images in the Royal Peacock stamp set and the beautiful foil paper. Directions, measurements and supplies linked to my online store can be found by clicking here. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Measurements…

  • Pretty Peacock Cardstock
    • 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ and folded in half for the card base
  • Bermuda Bay Cardstock
    • Scrap for stamping and punching 2″ Circle
    • 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ (for the inside layer)
  • Whisper White Cardstock
    • 2-1/8″ x 5-1/4″
  • Noble Peacock Designer Paper
    • 1/2″ x 5-1/4″
    • 1-1/8″ x 5-1/4″

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Directions…

  • Using Pretty Peacock ink, stamp then punch the sentiment.
  • Stamp the peacock full body image with Bermuda Bay ink on the Whisper White piece. Then stamp the tail feather accent image with Pretty Peacock ink.
  • Using SNAIL Adhesive attach the two strips of designer paper on the right and left side of the card front first. Attach the Whisper White layer. Then adhere the Bermuda Bay layer to the inside of the card.
  • Add the sentiment circle with Dimensionals so it sits halfway on the white and designer paper layers.
  • Finish off with two rhinestones so they line up with the gap between the white and designer paper layers.

Our June and July summer months were pretty intense around here. So this week we are laying low, helping Luke to heal, and hoping to play catch up a bit. Anyone want to help me clean my house? In fact we are hoping for a mellow August. So I’ve decided not to offer product shares for the upcoming Holiday catalog just to reduce my workload for the time being. It was a hard decision, but a necessary one. For those of you looking for 2019 Holiday Catalog product shares, I highly recommend a mother/daughter team from Stampingbae.com, Nancy and Kayla. They are a part of my Stampers With ART Community and have helped me with my product shares in the past.
