On Stage 2018 and New Catalog!!

Last weekend 3 of my stamping friends and I made an after work trip to Milwaukee for a Stampin' Up On Stage event.  It is always a whirlwind, but it's so much fun that it's totally worth it!

We got our hands on a copy of the brand new catalog, and in a week's time, mine has become a little dogeared.  It's one of the best yet!



We also got to try out some of the new products.


Here are some goodies gifted to me by my fellow demonstrators!



I made these cute little boxes for my roommates.


And here are the freebies I came home with after OnStage!!  One was in our bag when we checked in, 3 of them were different prizes and the rest were the items I got when we divided up the leftover make-n-take supplies!  Quite a haul!


And here are the wonderful people I am lucky enough to know.  If you'd like to get in on all of this fun next time, click here to join my team!!



When we finished up our make-n-takes our table went to the front to look over some samples and Shelli, the founder of the company, came up and put her arms around us and asked us what we thought of the new colors!!  We had a nice chat until it was time for her to go back up on stage.  What a fun bonus!


There is so much to look forward to in this catalog.  I'm pretty excited about the Color Revamp.  Every 3-5 years Stampin' Up will update the colors with either a refresh or a revamp.  So this year, in addition to 5 new InColors, we have a ton of returning colors from past InColors or completely new colors.

March Keep It Simple Cards

I'm definitely thinking spring as I type about my March Keep It Simple card class.  It's snowing right now, but there is promise of warmer weather later this week.  While my cards aren't overly springy, it certainly was on my mind as I was creating!



Thanks to some talented demos, I CASED each of these and made slight changes to all of them.  For those of you unfamiliar with the term, it means Copy And Share with Everyone.  So you never need to let a creative slump keep you from stamping a beautiful card.  Thanks to Fran Sabad for the tennis shoes, Katherine Anderson for the Celebrate You, Windy Ellard for the bird's nest and Amanda Bates for the mountain scene.

Email me if you'd like to join us to make these 4 cards Thursday night!

This month's hostess code is ZY9D76K6.  Please use this when placing an order to receive a small thank you gift from me.  If you are ordering more than $150, you'll want to keep the hostess benefits for yourself, so please don't enter the code. Be sure to click "yes" for contact so I can send you a small thank you gift! To Order Stampin' Up! Products On-Line 24/7, CLICK HERE!

Tutti Frutti Cards and Envelopes

I think one of the reasons I have fun designing for my Keep It Simple Card Class is that everyone only makes one card of each design.  There is never any worry about running out of DSP or accessories.  I can design freely knowing I have what I need for several people to make one card each.  It's an early night too because usually the cards are pretty quick to put together.  This month we still used the Big Shot several times and worked in the Rock and Roll Technique, but when just making one card of each, it goes quickly. 

This card used the Tutti Frutti Cards and Envelopes from the Sale-a-Bration brochure and the Picnic With You stamp set from the Occasions catalog.

Party Pandas Birthday Card


Who wouldn't like getting this cute Party Panda in the mail?  I've combined it with Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper for this cheerful little greeting.  Both of these products are Sale-a-bration items available for you to choose when you spend $50 or more.

Heartfelt Blooms Sympathy


This beautiful Heartfelt Blooms stamp set is one of the choices you could make from the Sale-a-bration catalog when you spend $50.  It's such a beautiful set and can create a quick card.  With three stamps of the flower and one of the words, the card is done.  I think we all are guilty of trying to make a card "just right" sometimes, when all we need to do is put the ink to the paper and put it in the mail.

Singing Reindeer Punch Art


Over the years, there have been different versions of this carol singing reindeer out there, but I have never made one.  As different tools come and go, the reindeer change their looks just a bit, but that's the great thing about crafting... you can always come up with something.  Thanks to fellow demo Linda Parker for some inspiration.  

The Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper makes a perfect background with my Sahara Sand, Basic Black and Whisper White reindeer.  And here are some of the other tools I used!



If you'd like to make your own, you can order anytime through my online store, but you can take advantage of our Cyber Monday free shipping on Monday only.  Better yet -- come to my weekend stamp-a-stacks and make some with my pre-cut materials!
