Well I’m back from San Antonio. What a great time our group had. On Saturday when OnStage was held, we had a day of stamping demonstrations, business tips and we got the new catalog. It was hard to pay attention after that, LOL. We all went to dinner together, then went back to the hotel to go through the catalog. I don’t think I’ve laughed that much in a long time. On our plane ride home (3 1/2 hours), Patty, Kursten and I went through the catalog again. We really took the time to look at all the lovely samples to see how they were made. We made some fun discoveries. I’ll let you in on one of them. We have a new suite that is called Magnolia Lane. In the dies there is a magnolia flower, but in one of the samples you can see they (SU) also used the Hot Air Balloon Punch (yes, new stamp and punch) for the last layer of the flower. Woohoo! You know how I love to make 3d flowers. I’m sure I’ll be using this flower a LOT. We will be using this Suite for our Team Meeting on the 27th.
Please note, that all the wood mount stamps are retiring, but MIGHT be coming back in Cling. Stampin’ Up! is working on fixing these with an asterisk, so you know they will be reconfigured. I know its sounds confusing.
A couple things to remember: ALL stamp sets are guaranteed available until May 24th. After that they will be while supplies last. Everything else is while supplies last. I recommend ordering the Bundles and save 10%.
Paper Pumpkin’s “Hugs from Shelli” kit coming in May. Check out the video from Shelli, you’ll get a sneak peak of one of the cards in the kit. Sign up for the May Kit HERE!
All Occasions Card Class is this Thursday, I still have room. Let me know ASAP if you’d like to come. Cut off to RSVP is tomorrow. We’ll be making a Mother’s Day, Father’s Day (if you would rather change the sentiment for these cards, I will have alternatives) and and All Occasions card. You will make 2 of each of the 3 designs, envelopes included. Cost: $15 or FREE with a $50 order.
Isn’t this cover of the new catalog stunning? I can hardly put it down…….
This is my haul from OnStage. Not bad! Stampin’ Up! is so generous. When we were done making our makin’ takes, we split up all the supplies between all of us at our table. And that bag! Oh my, its beautiful, heavy canvas and the leaves are stitched on the bag. We received the Daisy Lane stamp set (coming medium Daisy Punch, whoo hoo), file folders, notebook, clip board and pen. Prize Patrol I received the Burch Background stamp and the DSP with the humming birds. The rest is from our make n takes.
We arrived in San Antonio on Thursday, so we took the boat ride down the River Walk after lunch. It was a beautiful day. Not to hot, not to cool.
All in all, it was an awesome OnStage! I will be sharing some of the make n takes soon. I’m having a bit of trouble doing anything but looking at the catalog…..
