OnStage April 2019… What’s New? What’s Leaving?

What a fabulous weekend! I attended Stampin’ Up!’s April 2019 OnStage event in my home town area… Minneapolis, Minnesota along with 32 others in my Stampers With ART stars group. These events bring me joy in so many ways…friends, inspiration, creative ideas, new stuff, fun and goodies, all that we take home, the swaps and gifts from others,… I’m in my happy place!  🤗🦋💕
#OnStage2019

This OnStage was centered around the unveiling of the new products coming out in the 2019-20 Annual Catalog which will debut on June 4, 2019.


Before I share some photos from this fun event I want to remind you that along with the coming of a new catalog, comes saying good-bye to the current catalogs. And Stampin’ Up! has posted its list of products that are now retiring from the current ones: the 2018-19 Annual Catalog and the 2019 Occasions Catalog.

Don’t miss out on your favorites before they are gone for good! Click here for more information about the 2018-19 retiring Stampin’ Up! products. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Be sure to take a good look at the retiring products lists so that you don’t miss out on getting items that you have wanted. Some things (like designer papers, ink pads and refills, cardstock…) sell out quickly!

CLICK HERE for more detailed information, to access the lists and links, for dates about transitioning into the new catalog, AND to find out how you can get your hands on the new 2019-20 Annual Catalog. I’m mailing them directly this year instead of having them sent through Stampin’ Up!. So please be sure to read through how you can get your own copy sent to you.


 

This time the OnStage Live (the big three day event) was in Auckland, New Zealand. So I attended one of the OnStage Locals. And I was blessed to have a few team members travel far to join our big group: two from California, one from Iowa, one from North Dakota, one from Wisconsin, and many from Minnesota but a good drive away.

For those of us at a leadership level, we were treated on Friday evening to an extra special event called CentreStage. I roomed with my good friend (and upline) Susan Campfield. This is a photo from her camera that we had taken before we entered the event.

Susan’s team of Silver Elites and above (which I am a part of with my team member Cheryl) is pictured below: Me, Carol Rosengren, Cheryl Lee, Linda Larson, Susan Campfield (in the back), Kelly Burkhart, and Carol Baumgartner.

The food was incredible and tasted wonderful! I was amazed that there were so many choices for my restrictive diet. So I dished up to get a taste of everything.

I shared this photo of Cheryl and me on Saturday, but thought I’d add it here since this was a huge highlight of being able to attend this leadership event…getting the catalog early!

The next day was the main event for all…OnStage. I love how the tables were each decorated. (Notice the miniature Stampin’ Up! box filled with candy? Those mini boxes are one of the new products that will be available in the catalog. So cute, right?!)

These beautiful gals (that I sat with on Saturday) are four members of my Stampers With ART community that I met in person for the first time this weekend!! They each traveled a good distance to be here. The two gals in the back each flew in to be with our group…Jenny Rehder from Corona, CA and Amanda Martin from Plumas Lake, CA. Waving is Kym McCutcheon from Mountain Lake, MN. And next to her is Lisa-Marie Ramer from Gaylord, MN. What fun we had! Ashley Kuphal from Cokato, MN joined us later in the day but wasn’t in our photo. 🙁 Hopefully when I share more photos tomorrow, I’ll have one of her. She was delayed in getting to the event.

In fact I’ll share a few more photos of other friends and of projects tomorrow, too that you’ll want to come back to see.

The rest of these photos are of the products and samples on the display boards and a few good ones I took during the demonstrations. It’s fun to see all the NEW!!

This special double-sided display board below gave us all a sneak peek of the Paper Pumpkin kit coming next month…May’s kit which was designed with the help of Shelli Gardner, Stampin’ Up!’s board chair and cofounder. Shelli worked closely with designers and concept artists to create a Paper Pumpkin kit that is uniquely hers. It includes an exclusive photopolymer stamp set, paper, and crafting materials to create 12 mailable cards (3 cards of 4 unique designs), 12 exclusive, coordinating envelopes, and a Classic Stampin’ Spot. Coordinating colors: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Pretty Peacock (a new 2019-21 In Color), Soft Suede, and Very Vanilla.

I was super excited that we got to make this card from the kit, too! Click here to see the video for even more information on this kit. I’ll share photos of this with my other cards I made from the make-n-take materials tomorrow.

ANNUAL CATALOG NEWS

Due to recent supplier issues (and other factors), Stampin’ Up! will no longer be carrying the current die-cutting machine and trimmer: The Big Shot and Stampin’ Trimmer are retiring. These changes are giving Stampin’ Up! the opportunity to research and explore replacement options. And there will be a gap when we do not have a trimmer or die-cutting machine available. The order limit for the Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blade Refills is at six until supplies are depleted for good. (From now until September SU will receive intermittent shipments from the supplier.)

The Stampin’ Trimmer #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.comThe Big Shot die-cutting machine #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

The dies and folders that will be offered will not be from our current supplier. So there will be small changes: the dies and folders will be manufactured differently; this means the way you use the new style of dies and folders will be a little different than how you used the old style. Both the new-style and old-style dies and embossing folders can work with any die-cutting & embossing machine (in some cases, adaptations like shims may be required because the gap between rollers on machines may vary slightly between manufacturers). Click here for more details regarding the changes to our die-cutting machine, dies and embossing folders.

I realize for many of you that this news may be a little jaw-dropping at first. I had a similar reaction. But after giving it a little more thought, reminding myself that change is an opportunity for new and better, and knowing what a strong company Stampin’ Up! has been for 30 years, I now anticipate some marvelous changes to come! And I’m excited.

 

OnStage April 2019 Kicks Off & Wood Textures Channel Cards

#OnStage2019
Eek!! Many of us Stampin’ Up! demonstrators are in the midst of OnStage right now. Many of us have the new 2019-20 Annual Catalog in our hands – those who are attending in New Zealand, Japan, Germany, the UK or France and those of in the US and Canada that attended the leadership dinner, CentreStage last night! (Today all demonstrators attending OnStage will have their copy.) I’m drooling over all the new designer papers, stamp sets, embellishments, colors, etc!!

I appreciate all those who are sharing on social media using #OnStage2019 or #AucklandOnStage2019 .
It’s so fun to see what everyone is sharing out there! I’ll post more photos from the Minneapolis local event on Monday when I also share the list of products that will be retiring from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog and 2019 Occasions Catalog. So stay tuned!

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

Saturday is typically the day I share here on my blog what I demonstrated in my Wednesday’s Facebook Live Online Paper Crafting Class. This time I couldn’t settle on just one card! So I have TWO cards for you today. I just couldn’t decide which one I liked best! I used the popular Wood Textures Designer Paper for each. And both cards have raised panels creating a channel either in the middle or on the sides. (By the way my second card was inspired by a very artistic Emma Goddard card. Thanks Emma!)

So there will be small changes: the dies and folders will be manufactured differently; this means the way you use the new style of dies and folders will be a little different than how you used the old style. Both the new-style and old-style dies and embossing folders can work with any die-cutting & embossing machine (in some cases, adaptations like shims may be required because the gap between rollers on machines may vary slightly between manufacturers). Click here for more details regarding the changes to our die-cutting machine, dies and embossing folders.

I realize for many of you that this news may be a little jaw-dropping at first. I had a similar reaction. But after giving it a little more thought, reminding myself that change is an opportunity for new and better, and knowing what a strong company Stampin’ Up! has been for 30 years, I now anticipate some marvelous changes to come! And I’m excited.

There are some products that are selling out in the 2018-19 Annual Catalog already. These products were going to retire with this seasonal catalog anyway, but due to complications with Stampin’ Up!’s die supplier & not being able to replenish the inventory, the following items are no longer available:

  • Big Shot Standard Cutting Pads (item 113475) – please know that even though Stampin’ Up! no longer carries this, you can still find Sizzix Cutting Pads elsewhere 

 

 

February 2019 Stamp Share

I have some fun cards to share with you – our make-n-take projects from this past Saturday’s Stamp Share put on by my wonderful friend and team leader, Susan Campfield. She designed these make-n-takes, and I absolutely LOVE them! Plus… below are more photos from this amazing event.

The background of this card was created by first inking up one side of the Country Floral embossing folder BEFORE adding the cardstock and sending it through the Big Shot. Isn’t it amazing the effect that you can get? Those flowers really pop! This folder just got added as a free Level 1 Sale-a-Bration product.

Make-n-takes from our Stamp Share event February 16, 2019 featuring new products: Country Floral embossing folder, Painted Seasons Bundle, Call Me Cupcake Dies and Hello Cupcake stamp set and other fun photos from the event. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

This 2nd card features the new Call Me Cupcake Thinlits Dies and More Than Words Stamp Set. Both of these Sale-a-Bration Coordination products are available now to demonstrators and those who want to order them on a Starter Kit order. But during the month of March, they will be available to everyone. The Hello Cupcake stamp set is available now. It’s a level 1 SAB product.

These last two pop out cards show off the Painted Seasons Bundle (a new Level 2 Sale-a-Bration pick) and the Four Seasons Framelits Dies (another Sale-a-Bration Coordination product available to all in March). The card base of this larger one measures 4-1/4″ x 9″ folded in half. The inside explosion piece measures 6″ x 6″.

I love that my local Stampers With Art team members can attend this event. And I really love that we broadcast parts of this event in our team Facebook Group so that those in my team who aren’t local can still benefit in some way. Swapping is also an option for everyone. It was fun to see all the swap cards that my team members sent in or brought.

Here are a few more photos of the fun. These first three are pics I took while we were in line for our make-n-takes.

Demos Galore Demonstrator Helper Gifts

A week ago I shared some photos from our fan-tabulous biannual event, Demos Galore that was held on Saturday, January 26. Today I thought you’d enjoy seeing the gifts the demonstrator helpers received: the pretty butterfly name tag, the tiny treat bag, the make-n-take Gate-Fold Pop Out card (that everyone attending, attendees AND demonstrator helpers got to make), and the product gift with direction/idea sheet (that purchasing customers also received).

We had a wonderful January 2019 Demos Galore Event! Click here to see all the fun gifts the demonstrator helpers received: a pretty Beauty Abounds butterfly name tag, a Gingham Gala tiny treat bag, a Botanical Butterfly make-n-take Gate-Fold Pop Out card, and a product gift that contained papers from the Floral Romance Suite. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Susan used the Beauty Abounds Stamp Set and the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits for our name tags. She used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Gingham Gala Designer Paper for the cute bags. Aren’t those circular handles adorable?!

I turned my product gift into a Gate-Fold Pop Out card, too. You can see photos of the suggested card layouts in the direction sheet (in the first photo above). But I changed my product gift supplies up a bit and added in some extra items for my version. I’ll share that card in a couple days along with directions and tips for making the fun Gate-Fold Pop Out card. So I hope you are able to stop back again. I also hope you enjoyed seeing these fun gifts from our event. Thanks for visiting!

Demos Galore January 2019

Our 10th grand biannual team/customer event, Demos Galore took place yesterday in White Bear Lake, Minnesota. It was one of our coldest days this winter, and we still had a great turnout and lots of fun! This amazing event started 5 years ago as a way for the demonstrators in our group (those in my Stampers With ART group, my sidelines, and those in my sidelines’ groups – anyone connected to Susan Campfield, my upline) to share fun new products with our customers at the start of the seasonal catalogs (Holiday in September and Occasions in January). And it’s become an event that no one wants to miss.

We have a free make-n-take for everyone, gifts for participating/attending demonstrators and for customers that place a minimum order, several product demonstrations to go and watch around the room, displays and ideas everywhere, prizes, and of course yummy treats. Our next one will be September 28, 2019. Mark your calendars if you live locally, so you can attend!

I team up with Susan to plan, prepare and run the event. And then while the event is happening I am in charge of broadcasting it live via Facebook to our demonstrator team. I have several on my team who live all over the US, so it is important to me that we can share this with them in this way. I don’t have a photo of me to share since I was behind the camera the whole time (hahaha!), but here is a display of ideas I brought.

I love my Stampers With ART Stars! We had a wonderful January 2019 Demos Galore Event thanks to these demonstrators, my upline, and many of my sideline sister demos! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I want to give a shout out to those in my Stampers With ART team members who participated in some way… Nancy Forsberg & Kayla Cory from Stamping Bae shown here behind the tables and Vicki Spicer on the left (she also is one of my assistants) helped run the make-n-take area.

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 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.
