Decorations From CentreStage & OnStage, Made into Cards, Who Knew?

The theme this year at OnStage is Celebrations, personal and professional. They had the most beautiful table decoration & grid paper. I usually don’t keep my grid paper, but these papers were so beautiful I decided to bring them home with me and make some cards with them. So while I wait for my  Product Purchase Premiere, which I call my pre-pre order, I thought I better make these cards now, because once I get my new stuff…….I will be all over that!  Of course, after I finish all my Christmas stuff……LOL

This mat was a circle place mat at CentreStage.  Those flowers are big, but still managed to make a couple of cards with part of the flowers.

At the end of OnStage, Stampin’ Up! let us take home most of the items we used for make n takes. I was able to snag the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set. It has some awesome sentiments in it. And really this paper really doesn’t need much else. A little ribbon and some of the new Champagne Rhinestones. They are so pretty! Onstage 2019

I made sure the inside has a Whisper White piece of cardstock, so I can write my message. I stamped the flower from the To a Wild Rose inside as well.

These grid papers are from OnStage. I just mated them with Black. I colored the pretty new White Crinkle ribbon with Stampin’ Blends.

So I took something that was going to be thrown away and made several beautiful cards. Goes to show you, you can make cards from just about anything. Hats off to Stampin’ Up! for these beautiful grid papers.

Don’t forget that the Online Extravaganza starts today.

OnStage Local, Portland

I returned home last night from OnStage. I also attended CentreStage which is for anyone who is Silver Elite or above.  This was my first time.  (And yes, my hair was so frizzy). CenterStage is a catered dinner (which was yummy), gifts and a chance to mingle with all the leaders. We also received our bag with another stamp set, some super cute pins that we could trade with each other and all the ribbons for our name tag. The best part is that beautiful lanyard. Patty gave that to me and the others who promoted as well. Its from Brighton and I LOVE it. Thank you so much Patty! You can see my pineapple, flowers and Stampin’ Up! pins as well.   I received ribbons for achieving Silver Elite, which got me into CentreStage, Annual Sales, and Annual Leadership. I feel so blessed to be part of the Stampin’ Up! family.

I had such a great time and learned so much about some of the new products that are coming soon. If you want to purchase some of these new products early, join my team and add them to your Starter Kit starting December 3rd. That is before everyone else will get to purchase on January 3rd. That is a perk, getting to order from any of the new catalogs a month before everyone else.

I was so surprised when they called my name first to walk across the stage for achieving Silver Elite. You can see my silhouette on the far right. Its a little nerve racking walking across the stage, but it is nice that Stampin’ Up! celebrates all of our promotions. Silver Elite is like the “sweet” spot when your business goes to the next level.

Look at how beautiful the January-June 3rd Mini Catalog is. You might notice the orientation of the catalog is landscape. Wait until you see the inside……I can’t show you yet, not until the catalog goes live on January 3rd. But if you would like a copy, email me your snail mail address.  These Poppies are from the Painted Poppies bundle and the Poppy Moments Dies.  You will also notice it is no longer called the Occasions Catalog. Its the January-June 3rd, 2020 Mini Catalog. Although its 75 pages of awesome products and samples, its really not mini.


This is our place setting for CenterStage. That beautiful notebook on the right is from my friend Kursten. Its so pretty. You can see the My Meadow Stamp set and in that small box is a little credit card holder, with the poppies.

This was our dinner. Can you say yummy?

This was sitting at our table. Celebrating all our accomplishments no matter how big or small, personal or stamping.

And lets not forget Sale-a-bration starts on January 3rd-March 31, 2020. For every $50 you spend you can pick something for FREE from this catalog. We also have a level 2, where you spend $100 and get the Lily Pad Dies Or the Small Bloom Punch.



This is all the loot I came home with.  Can you believe how much stuff Stampin’ Up! gives us? After we were done with our make n takes, they let us take home all the supplies we used. How cool is that?

Laurie Bradshaw (from my team), with her Prize Patrol, Under my Umbrella. There is a punch that goes with that set. This was Laurie’s first time attending a Stampin’ Up! Event. I don’t think it will be her last.

This is one of our make n takes using the Painted Poppies stamp set and the Peaceful Poppies dsp. We colored the ribbon with Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I can’t wait to get this whole suite of products. We get to order from the Product Purchase Premiere because we attended OnStage. Its like a pre-pre order. Then the pre-order starts for all other Demos on December 3rd. Can you say? Merry Christmas to me! LOL


These beautiful tulips are from the Timeless Tulip Bundle and has a punch. I forgot to “wink” my tulips. Will have to do that.
