Some OnStage Cards & Gifts I Received

I love swapping! It’s one of the many blessings of being a demonstrator. I get “warm fuzzies” from the person I give my card to, and in return I get a fabulous creation that they put their time, creativity and energy into. It’s a win-win feeling! …as if we both have birthdays that we’re celebrating or something. LOL

Because it would take me tooooo long to show them ALL, here are just a FEW of my favorite swap cards and gifts that I received at the November 2017 OnStage.

Mary Spelbrink’s card makes me smile AND it’s green and shiny! It features the Every Good Wish stamp set (that I personally still have yet to use!) and fun Foil Frenzy Specialty paper.

Melissa Kerman’s card features the Wood Words stamp set and the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. Bonus!… you can click here to see her blog post and here to see her how-to video for this pretty card.

Sue Dyas always makes such fun treats! Her first project features a Starbuck’s Frappuccino® Cookie Straw, the Coffee Café Bundle and the coordinating Coffee Break Designer Paper.

Her second project (also made with the Coffee Café Bundle) features the following fun gift packaging products: Striped Treat Bags, Gold Library Clips and the pretty Soft Sky Classic Weave Ribbon.

I loved getting this next card made by Lisa Marie Esquivel-Smith. It shows off a fun sheet from the Pick a Pattern Designer Paper and has some circles (including one die-cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits) in the sentiment focal point area.

Bonnie Alexander‘s swap card caught my eye right away. I’m always drawn to shine and shimmer. It’s metallic and shiny in three areas: the Silver Emboss Powder, the Silver Foil Paper and the Silver 1/8″ Ribbon. She used the Wood Words stamp set in her card, too.

This card by Brenda Cardinal is so simple and sweet. I like how she added a few Rhinestones as accents to show off the elf image from the Festive Phrases stamp set.

This next card was given to me by Stella MacKay. It made me giggle with all the mushrooms. She used a sheet from the Pick a Pattern Designer Paper in her swap, too which coordinates really well with the gold Metallic Foil Doily positioned under the sentiment layer.

Susan Campfield made this adorable penquin bag from half of an Acetate Card Box and some black & white wired 7/8″ Striped Ribbon. She then used the Many Mittens Framelits Dies to create the tiny little penquin accent.

OnStage November 2017 – News & New Stuff!!

It was really hard to contain myself. We had to wait until 1 PM Mountain Time to share all the fun news (new products, announcements, recognitions, peeks, etc.) from Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage November 2017 that took place this past weekend. The reason for the wait time is so that all of us demonstrators across the globe have a chance to hear it and see it all first. We are all in different time zones, so it makes sense. But it’s hard to hold back when there are so MANY fun things to share! So… now I get to BURST!!

OnStage Live in Salt Lake City, Utah sold out this year. We had a full house.

There is something for everyone at OnStage. Those of us who earn the title of Silver Elite or higher get to attend a special recognition dinner the first night. (I shared a photo from this on Friday.) And then on the last day we gather again for a special lunch, recognition gift and training session. Our presenters this year were Lisa Pretto, Brandi Barnard and Jason Hewlett. And they were incredible!

Achievers are also recognized throughout the event for significant anniversaries, milestones, promotions, sales, recruits, leadership, etc. It’s fun to cheer each other on since we had several in our group that walked across stage to get recognized. AND GUESS WHAT?! I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I ranked #58 globally and was recognized in the Global Top 100 again this year! Thank you to all of you – my supportive friends and family, my loyal subscribers & customers, those in my wonderful Stampers With ART community and other demonstrator friends… Thank you to everyone who is a part of my world!! This is an award that isn’t earned alone. I am truly blessed.

I can’t share any of the “secret” stuff until Monday afternoon (saving those photos until then), but for now I have a cute project idea to share with you today…

Today is the 10th of the month. That means it’s the last day to sign up or make sure your Paper Pumpkin account is active if you wish to receive the November 2017 kit. AND…we know it’s gonna be adorable because we’ve been told it’s going to coordinate with the October Pining for Plaid kit. I can’t wait!!

I’ve been sharing my alternate project ideas from this October kit (on October 26, October 27, November 7, and November 8). And today I have one more cute idea to share. It’s a mini gift card!

Christmas tree tag/mini card created with the October 2017 “Pining for Plaid” Paper Pumpkin kit!…#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

And it’s actually a teaser of one the exclusive projects that I share with my personal subscribers – projects that I don’t share with anyone else but them. Here are the directions & measurements if you wish to recreate this.

  • Layer up the base pieces of the card:
    • Basic Black Cardstock: 3″ x 6″ folded in half
    • Whisper White Cardstock: 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ for the inside of the card
    • Old Olive Cardstock: 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ for the front of the card
    • Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper: 2-5/8″ x 2-5/8″ for on top of the Old Olive layer
  • To make the tree, die-cut a circle using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies that is 2-7/8″ in diameter. (You can do this tree with any size circle, but this is the size I used.) Then cut it in half.
  • Next place it in the Stampin’ Trimmer with the flat edge at the top and score it so that 2/3 of the semi-circle is on one side of the score line and 1/3 is on the other side. In this case I scored it at just under 2″ (or just under 1″ if looking at it from the other end).

Christmas tree tag/mini card created with the October 2017 “Pining for Plaid” Paper Pumpkin kit!…#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

  • Now create a two more crease marks to create “pie pieces”… that fold each portion in “half” and that both lead to the same point (the crease marks will all meet at the flat edge where the first crease mark originated). Here are two series of photos that may visually help guide you into forming the tree. Either way it’s sort of like fan-folding.

Demos Galore Gifts & Paper Pumpkin Peek

On October 9th I posted a few samples of some September 2017 Paper Pumpkin projects I shared at our Demos Galore event on September 30th. I actually had triple duty during the event…demonstrating/chatting about Paper Pumpkin kits, sharing how to double the cards in the Watercolor Christmas card kit, and making announcements every 1/2 hour so attendees could hear about the specials, the make-n-takes, etc.

Almost a month has passed, and I’m finally getting around to showing you the fun gifts, the pretty name tag, and the make-n-take card from this event. These first two photos show the gifts we offered for every $50 in products ordered that day. People had their choice of these three.

Inside each Acetate Card Box were samplings of each sheet from a set of designer papers along with some coordinating embellishments. Everyone loved this offer, and we ended up having to prepare (right there at the event!) twice as many as we had projected needing.

The other gift was a smaller sampler of designer paper, base Whisper White cardstock prepped for a bridge-fold card, and a direction sheet sharing how to make a bridge-fold card. This gift was given to everyone who ordered a minimum of $25.

Each attendee & demonstrator at the event got to make a bridge-fold card (hence the gift above). I found a couple spare minutes to make one, too. This was mine! (On Tuesday evening I will be sharing another bridge-fold card and will give step-by-step directions for it. So come back to visit in a couple days!)

My upline, Susan Campfield designed the gifts, the make-n-take card and the name tags all of us demonstrators wore. Isn’t this name tag pretty?!

Here is a photo of me and one portion of my display/demonstration table where I shared how to double the cards in the Watercolor Christmas kit. (I had also shared this idea here on my blog on August 20th. Click here to see what I shared.)

Demos Galore was a spectacular event filled with several tables of demonstrators demonstrating, make-n-takes, tons of display boards of ideas, gifts and prizes, and refreshments. I highly recommend attending our next one on January 27th if you live nearby. It will be held in White Bear Lake, Minnesota. Be sure you are signed up to receive my newsletters (see the link on the home page of my website) so you can hear about this and other online and local events coming up. Plus each newsletter shares timely news and project ideas.

Susan came over to visit me the other day and brought me a gift to once again congratulate me for earning the Alaskan cruise. This is the next Stampin’ Up! incentive trip being held next July 2018, and we are taking our boys this time. So she had the boys help me open it. And inside were these fun plush bears for them and books and seasoning for Tim and me! She’s such a sweetie.

I’m going to Alaska thanks to Stampin’ Up! ...#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Then to make the gift even better, she made this fun card from the new October 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit

…and colored the letters on the inside with our new Blends markers (that are debuting on November 1st)!

Creative Connections September 2017

We just held our 3rd annual Creative Connections here in Minnesota! There were 273 demonstrators in attendance, tons of ideas on display, lots of swapping, several prizes given out, and many great presentations.

Creative Connections September 2017…#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Terri Gaines (one of the presenters today and the mastermind behind this great event), Susan Campfield (another presenter and the one who works the camera), Georgia Giguere (the organizer of presenters and MC) and Patsy Waggoner (the organizer of registrations and prizes) put a ton of work into pulling this all together for us! Wish I would've gotten better photos.

Creative Connections September 2017…#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I presented for a few minutes on stage about one of my absolute favorite products, Paper Pumpkin kits.

Sandy Carlson had so many fantastic things to share in her presentation. I think she brought it all in a U-Haul. LOVE this gal!!! And we got to sit next to each other.

I got to spend some fun quality time with fellow demonstrator Mary Haugen, co-owner of Stamp-n-Storage. She is such a sweetheart!

We were missing a few who registered and couldn't make it and a few who didn't get in on the photo (and of course the larger number who live far and couldn't make it), but look at our fantastic group!!! I love these wonderful individuals – my stampin' sisters who are all somewhere in the lineage from my upline, Susan Campfield).

Gotta get silly too – here I am with Nancy Reynolds, Jean Eckman, Tricia Josephs (in front) and Cheryl Lee. Our Stampers With ART group is so much fun! I treasure these friendships.

Here I am with Dawn Olchefske, my talented friend and birthday twin (LOL) who demonstrated fun ideas with our glossy cardstock and reinkers.

Fellow demonstrator from Wisconsin, Lisa Pretto always has such great advice, tips and ideas. I LOVE her and have always learned from her Ink Big Academy trainings I've attended (my favorite was her Masters Retreat that I was a part of in October 2014). She is one smart lady.

Creative Connections September 2017…#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Fellow demonstrator from Tennesee, Julie Salva was our motivational speaker who almost got us rolling on the floor with laughter AND brought us to tears when she spoke from her heart. She's a true star and will always shine in my world.

Creative Connections September 2017…#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Stampin' Up!'s Carrie Warner from Utah attended and shared, too!! She's very creative, and our jaws all dropped when she turned a mitten die into a penguin!

The 2017 Holiday Catalog! Gifts and M&Ts from Thailand

Stampin' Up!® is releasing their brand new 2017 Holiday Catalog soon, and today I can share with you some of the fun new samples and products I've received from it while we were on the Thailand Incentive trip!

Are you interested in receiving your own copy? 🙂

IMG_7611

If you wish to receive a complimentary copy in August, please let me know now. Those that ordered at least $75 worth of product from me between March 1, 2017 and July 27, 2017 (today) will get one at no cost. If you didn't order at least $75 worth and you live too far from me to come pick up a copy, then I just ask that you pay the shipping costs. But I'd love to know how many to order, so please let me know ASAP if you wish to get one.

 

I've been dying to share all the pillow gifts & prizes we got while we were on the Thailand Incentive trip! They include products that will be available to purchase in this Holiday Catalog. Fun, fun, fun! I took a photo each day on our trip of the fabulous goodies I got. The night we arrived (late Sunday) there was a beautiful basket of fruit. And then these were the items I was gifted each of the following days.

On Monday I received the Holiday Catalog, the Merry Little Labels stamp set, the Everyday Label Punch, the Carols of Christmas stamp set, the Card Front Builder Thinlits, the Painted Harvest stamp set, the Painted Autumn Designer Paper (all coming soon), and a polo shirt for my husband.

And on Friday I received the Ready for Christmas stamp set, the Christmas Staircase Thinlits, and the 7/8" Striped Ribbon (all coming soon) along with a painted ceramic jar, a starfish beanie animal, a stuffed purple elephant, and a gold elephant necklace.

We were spoiled for sure!

 

And here are the make-n-takes that I made during this trip. (Yep! We got to stamp too!) I made mine slightly different than how the direction sheets showed. I was sitting with fellow demonstrator Tanja Kolar when I was making this first one, and I fell in love with her more striking version. So this card below is one that I CASEd from her.

Then I did the same thing with my remaining cards and tags…made them different than the samples in the directions. LOL Why not, right?
