Silver Elite Retreat December 2018

I’m so excited to share with you photos of the fun we had this past weekend up in Northern Minnesota at my parents’ cabin. I took my team member, Cheryl Lee with me on this Silver Elite Retreat. And like last year, the weekend was focused on pampering Cheryl and celebrating her Stampin’ Up! demonstrator accomplishments and successes.

My parents made the cabin so warm & welcoming with all their little touches.

My mom put out treats and decorations & made us fabulous meals.

My dad helped clean up from the meals, kept the long road in drivable, and kept the cabin cozy and warm. We even had a fire in the wood-burning stove on Friday evening. It felt like we were at a Bed & Breakfast.

My mom (who is also a paper crafter), Cheryl and I each made 13 cards on Saturday: four that I had created for this event and nine cards from kits – all with new products that will be available soon. (I’ll share more on the specifics of the cards in future posts, so be sure to stop back.) Here are the ones we created with the upcoming All My Love Suite.

This card below was the most difficult of all our cards to put together. But we all gave it “a go” and had success. Yay! I’ll have to do a video for it. 😉

These are the “pillow gifts” I gave Cheryl. This first one I gave to her right away on Friday after we arrived. I created this bag with the Frosted Floral papers awhile back and shared it here on my blog back on October 2nd. I loved this bag so much, I HAD to use it.

Inside the bag and the box were these personalized gifts: an insulated lunch tote and an etched Clear Block D that Tamra Davis from TaDa Moments had made for me. (She made the personalized gifts for last year’s retreat too!)

Then throughout the day on Saturday, I gave Cheryl these product-filled bags decorated with coordinating tags also made from the Frosted Floral Designer paper. (I had received gifts from Stampin’ Up! during my Alaskan Incentive Trip this past July in these drawstring logo bags.)

All the gifts were clear or silver Stampin’ Up! products to keep with the theme of the Silver Elite Retreat. And the products inside sort of hinted to the next set of cards we would be making.

My preorder arrived a couple days ago, and I couldn’t wait to create with some of my new products!

I couldn’t wait to play with my 2019 Occasions & Sale-a-Bration catalog products!

I shared many of these preorder products (and more goodies from OnStage) yesterday in a Facebook Live broadcast. Then I uploaded the recorded version of this video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook).

  • Stamp small sentiment on the Grapefruit Grove piece so it’s centered and positioned about an inch from the bottom. Adhere to the inside of the card on the left side.
  • Wrap and tie on ribbon as shown so the knot is on the inside of the card positioned close to the sentiment.
  • Attach the 5-1/4″ Whisper White piece to the inside of the card on the right side. (A great place to put a handwritten note!)
  • Punch out a couple butterflies from the designer paper and attach to the inside and the outside of the card. The outside one is attached with a Dimensional.

Wrapping Up OnStage Orlando 2018

I’m back home now. But I want to share a few more photos (47 more – lol) from the November 2018 OnStage Live in Orlando, Florida. When I posted last time, I forgot to show off the beautiful room that Susan and I shared at the Rosen Centre Hotel. Because we had booked a meeting room here for our team event, we were treated to a couple perks…

And each one of us got another prize based on the number on our pin. I received the Beauty Abounds stamp set – one of my favorites in the upcoming 2019 Occasions Catalog. Here’s a photo of my friend and team member, Christy Bauer getting her prize, the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set. (Check out her cute bag! I’ll be sharing more about that bag and how you can get it in a future post.)

This convention was super special because we celebrated Stampin’ Up! being 30 years old. It’s hard to believe it’s been that long. In fact, I’ll be celebrating my 19th anniversary with SU in February. (I guess I started with SU when it was just 11 years old! Wow!)

A huge announcement was made at this convention..Cling stamps will replace our Clear-mount stamps. Cling stamps are basically the same thing except the labels are stickier and cling to clear blocks super well. Yay!

My upline (and cherished friend of almost 19 years) were roomies this year and had a fabulous time at this magical Disney World park.

OnStage officially kicked off for everyone on Thursday. And one of the first things that took place was a celebration of the top-achieving demonstrators. I made the Global Top 100 again this year!!! I’m #48 in the world out of about 53,000 demonstrators!! And in the US I’m #28 overall, #19 in leadership, #17 in recruiting, and #22 in sales!

I haven’t shared this news with you here on my blog yet. And I’m so sorry. This year we were told ahead of time. So you may have seen the post on my personal Facebook page that my friend, Susan put on my wall. But within an hour after I found out on November 1st, my kids came home from school arguing with each other. And then while struggling to get my youngest to work on his homework, my printer died. So I had to deal with that and get a new printer that evening to finish my craft fair projects and prep. My craft fair event took place on Saturday, so I used all of my waking moments on Friday to get that ready. And after that was over,….sigh… I had just two more days to get my team gifts done and get packed up for OnStage. Phew! I tell ya! The struggle is real. I’m sure you can all relate. It was a crazy busy week. Sometimes when it rains, it pours. Right? And so as you can see in the photo above (that my friend Carol Rosengren took) it didn’t even really hit me how huge and wonderful these achievements were until I was here celebrating with all my Stampin’ Up! friends.

A HUGE THANK YOU! I couldn’t have earned these rankings without all of you – my Stampers With ART peeps, fellow demonstrators, Stampin’ Up! employees, customers, club members, followers, subscribers, other friends, and my family!!

I also was chosen to be on the Demonstrator Council!!! This is new, so I can’t tell you much about it yet. But I applied and was one of the lucky ones picked!

And here is my walk across stage with Frenchie Martin and Susan Campfield for being 160,000+ Flex Point achievers. (I’m very proud to say I actually reached the max and earned 500,000 points. I cashed in 160,000 of them for Greece – the 2019 Stampin’ Up! incentive trip! My guest this year will be my sister. Yay!! I’m really looking forward to this special time that I get to share with her.

On Thursday evening our team that attended OnStage from all over the US gathered for a private event at the Rosen Centre Hotel so we could visit, dine, stamp make-n-takes, laugh, swap, and just have a ton of fun together. What a grand evening…for sure one of the highlights of this week for me!

On Thursday and Friday (the first two of the full three days of OnStage) we saw lots of demonstrations with new products, did some make-n-takes, learned about new Cling Stamps (clingier than clear-mount) debuting in the new catalogs, and we’ve been spoiled!

One of the best things about OnStage is it gives us all a chance to meet up each year. I love my demonstrator friends! I was able to meet many that I’ve only been connected with through social media, and I made even MORE new friends (from all over the world!).

I’m going to end my post soon because it’s late and I need to get to bed soon. But here are a few photos of some of my beautiful Stampin’ Up! friends. I am blessed.

Field Trip to SNS & Creative Connections 2018

What an amazing weekend I had! I attended a special Stamp-n-Storage event Friday afternoon with my friends and team members, Nancy Forsberg & Kayla Cory, and then I took part in (presented at!) a huge demonstrator event on Sunday afternoon. So I thought I’d share a few photos.


These photos are from Friday. Here is our excitement as we are arriving in Hutchinson, MN.

Nancy, Kayla and I attended Stamp-n-Storage's Retail Store Grand Opening & Warehouse Sale!.…stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Nancy, Kayla and I attended Stamp-n-Storage’s Retail Store Grand Opening & Warehouse Sale. And oh my goodness! It was so fun to experience and share in that special day. The deals were wonderful of course, so I bought a couple more pieces than I needed. But it was exciting to watch the ribbon cutting ceremony, to hear about how fast this business has grown for Brett & Mary Haugen (the owners), and to see the beautiful new location for their company that now includes retail space. Plus I saw lots of people I knew there!

On Sunday I took part in the 2018 Creative Connections event, an annual event hosted by a demonstrator leader group in our area that I’m a part of called Stamp Share For Leaders. We put this event on for our team members. And it’s an amazingly huge and successful event, because there are many of us all pitching in in some way. I can’t possibly name all the fabulous demonstrators that helped to pull this together. But they are wonderful, amazing people.

Terri Gaines, Georgia Giguere and Susan Campfield are the leads for this event, and they always do such a fantastic job. I was a presenter along with Patsy Waggoner, Terri Gaines, Karen Titus, Susan Campfield, Georgia Giguere, Sandy Carlson, and our special guest, Brian Pilling from Stampin’ Up!’s home office!

Here are a few photos from that event.

Notice that Brian Pilling is incognito below. These other fabulous gals with me are teammates: Cheryl Lee, Vicki Spicer, Nancy Forsberg, Kayla Cory, Sandy Stellenburg, and Ashley Kuphal.

I love sharing and teaching, so I had a great time presenting the beautiful Frosted Floral Suite of products. I had so much fun though, that I lost track of time and went over by quite a few minutes. But I’m guessing that doesn’t surprise many of you. I love to share!

Favorite Cruise Swaps & More Pics

I keep looking back at the photos from my Alaskan trip wishing I would’ve shared a few more with you when I posted on July 30th.

So today I thought I’d do that along with pictures of some of my favorite swaps I got!

Swapping is a great way to get new ideas and samples for classes, events and just inspiration. Check out this fun pencil case made by Sophie Prestrelle, a demonstrator from France! She posted directions with a how-to video here on her blog.

Here is a fun one by Erica Cerwin. She shared it her Facebook Live broadcast that she posted here on her blog. This is totally the ideal birthday card for me this year.  Because though I’m 50 now, I don’t feel “old” yet. I’ll take “retro,” though. (I LOVED my boom box from the 80’s.)

We thought it was pretty fun that we had a room off the back of the ship that we could see from Windjammers. So one day after lunch, my son Luke had me wait while he ran down to our balcony so I could take his photo.
