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.


Snow Globe Ornament

To make the ornament:

Take one dome and peel away the adhesive backing and fill with Snowflake Sequins & Ice Stampin’ Glitter, being careful not to get any of the sequins or glitter on the adhesive.

Die cut your trees with Sparkle Glimmer Paper and the deer with Soft Suede cardstock using the Snow Glove Scenes Dies. Arrange at the bottom (or flat part of the Globe) using  the adhesive from the Globe. You will need a few Glue Dots to add the deer.

Add a length of White Baker’s Twine as your ornament hanger to the top of the Globe. Make sure the twines doesn’t show.

Take the other Globe and peel away the adhesive backing and carefully add to the other Globe.

Die cut the base from the Noble Peacock Foil Sheet, there is two pieces. You will need 2 solid pieces and one ornate piece. Adhere the ornate piece to one of the solid pieces. Now this is the tricky part…….since you aren’t taking off the adhesive backing, its a slick surface. It will take some patience to get the base to hold. I used Tombow and some clips to hold it. Add the back base and hold with some clips. It will take a few minutes to dry. Now add the Glimmer Dots and a bow at the top of the Globe. I realized that the Gingham ribbon is retired. But you could use any of the Christmas Ribbons in the Holiday Catalog.

Thank you to Lauren Alarid at the Crafty Little Peach for inspiration on this ornament.

You Warm My Heart

Yes they do! My Club Gals really keep me going. I love that I get to see them at least once a month.

Please tell me why I have not used the Frosted Foliage Bundle until now? These thank you cards were super easy to put together. I used all the dies in the Frosted Frames Dies, and the Feels Like Frost dsp. I love the way each card is different depending on how I laid the dies on the dsp.  I used two different papers in the Feels Like Frost dsp.

Frosted Foliage Bundle, Feels Like Frost dsp, Noble Peacock, Big Shot

Start off with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ of Highland Heather cardstock, scored at 4 1/4″.

Next stamp the snowflakes from the Frosted Foliage Stamp Set in Highland Heather across like I did below.  I know it doesn’t show too much after you add the frame, but I felt it needed a little something.

Now die cut all the pieces in the die set except the Whisper White Piece with the Feels Like Frost dsp. These are intricate dies and found that I needed to go back and forth 2 times for the paper to pop out of the die. Die cut the label with Whisper White cardstock and stamp whatever sentiment you want. You have three to choose from in this set.  Snail the sentiment down on your frame and then add Dimensionals to the back and attach it to your card.  Add the other pieces however you want. To finish it off I added a few of the Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

Hope my club gals like their cards.
