Stampin' Up 2017-2018 Catalog

My Talented Team and their Fabulous Swaps and 3-D Creations

I want to share my teams swaps from our Christmas Party with you. The theme was gift packaging. Some of the girls made boxes and others did gift card holders. They were all very cute!

This adorable little gift box was made by Sue Brennan. She used the "Bella and Friends" stamp set to decorate the front of the box.

Birthday packages that I made with the new Silver Gable boxes from the upcoming Occasions Catalog 2018.

This is the coolest gift card holder... Its a "zipper card" made by Lori Wiest. Pull the tab and it unzips the card to reveal a gift card inside. I don't have instructions, but I'm sure it can be "googled."

#1 Stampers Team Christmas Party & a Sneak Peek

We had such a great time last weekend at our #1 Stampers team party. I love getting together with my team and enjoying each others company. We also did a little bit of stamping and swapping as well as exchanged some amazing hand stamped gifts!

We played a cute grab bag game to determine who got which gift.

IMG_E2093

Notice the little tag on Teresa's gift? Its a darling little panda from a new Sale a Bration set coming in January!

IMG_E2034

Teresa received some chocolate and some beautifully stamped Christmas cards, made by Lori Wiest.

These are a few of the cards that Lori Wiest made for her gift exchange:

Kathy's gift came wrapped in this gorgeous stamped paper by Sue Brennan.

IMG_2043
The amazing work of art that was inside that pretty paper.... Sue Brennan really out did herself creating the awesome gift!

IMG_2044

Darlene Christian was the artist that designed these matching coasters and candles for the lucky recipient.

IMG_2056

I designed this gift bag with punched red glimmer paper circles and a tag made with the Tags and Trimmings stamp set. I didn't make a hand stamped gift, however, inside were stamps and goodies from the upcoming NEW Occasions Catalog!

IMG_E2052

We played some super fun games and had a snowball fight to win prizes. I think this was the favorite game that night.

IMG_E2079

IMG_E2076

I also had the girls tear a Christmas Tree behind their backs. The best tree won a prize. I also gave a prize to the tree that wasn't the best ;) Here are some of the trees. Unfortunately neither the best or worst trees are in this photo. Not sure where they ran off to...

IMG_2092

We also had a cool make n take with a new stamp set and accessories from the soon to be released Occasions Catalog 2018.

Lori is assembling her cute card before our next game.

IMG_2066

This set is called Bubble Over and you'll be able to order it in January. Check out the designer paper, the new sequin emboss folfder, the clear bubbles and the self adhesive sequins- yes, you'll be able to order those soon too!

Eclipse Technique Valentine Card

It may be a little early for Valentines Day cards, but I couldn't resist playing around with this popular new technique that I have been waiting to try. The eclipse technique is so very cool and super easy.

If you are attending card class this week, we will be making an eclipse card, so you're in luck!

For this card, I used the "This Little Piggy" stamp set and the new Stampin' Blends Markers. Of course it wouldn't be an eclipse technique without the main product... the Large Letters Framelit Dies.

The card base is real red 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card, Quilted Christmas designer paper is cut 5 1/4" x 4 and the whisper white is 5" x 3 3/4".

How stinkin' cute is this little piggy!?

IMG_1915

All I did was stamp the image with the tuxedo black Memento ink pad, onto whisper white cardstock, and colored it in with the Stampin Blends alcohol markers, in pink pirouette, old olive and daffodil delight. I then cut the X and O out with the Big Shot and Large Letters Framelits dies.

IMG_1918

Next, I mounted my whisper white cardstock onto my card- and attached the die cut X and O (in the cut out spaces) with mini dimensionals.

Don't forget the inside:

IMG_1921

Thats it! Super simple.

I hope my card class attendees will love the card I have for them this week- its also Valentine related.

Thanks for stopping by today...

Until the next time....

Stampin Up Convention- Part 4- More Swaps, Friends and Fun & Maybe a Sneak Peek

Attending the Stampin Up Convention is not only a great way to learn and create, but its also so much fun, hanging with my team and friends from all over the world.

This year, my team and I wore our Pink Pineapple Paper Crafts t-shirts to the opening session. Many groups do the same and dress in their team outfits. Gretchen, Lori and Kathy definitely look pretty in pink, don't you think?

IMG_0717

We loved hanging out with our friends from the Aloha state. They are always so friendly and fun and bring a ray of sunshine along with them.

IMG_1060

We of course enjoyed swapping with them and my friend, Linda Bauwins team- here's a look at all the gorgeous swaps from our Warm and Fuzzy Breakfast party.

IMG_1769

There are always tons of sample boards and such great techniques and art to absorb. Lori was blown away with her first Convention and all the amazing ideas and techniques.

IMG_0743

Catching up with my team and enjoying a dinner or two together is always a highlight. Here we are at The Roof Restuarant overlooking Temple Square in SLC, Utah.

IMG_0644

Meeting up with my demonstrator friends is something I really look forward to, as I only get to see them once or twice a year. This is my friend Robyn from Utah- we go way back- we are Stampin Up Advisory Board sisters.

IMG_0663

A fun group of friends from the East Coast to the Pacific - Me, Cindy, Linda, Mary Ellen and Tami.

IMG_0925

Of course there are always prizes and gifts. Check out the "all attendee" give away- hint: its a sneak peek from the New Occasions Catalog 2018!

IMG_1040

The excitement of the crowd and the energy is contageous. 

IMG_0669

There was also a special dinner, entertainment and training for some of us. Kim, Cindy, Meg and Missy are the sweetest!

IMG_E0696

I was so happy that my downline Kathy was able to attend this special Centre Stage event with me this year.

IMG_0995

Gifts- did I mention all the gifts that I hauled home? Wow, its always fun to unpack all of this joy! Can you see the new stamp sets that are coming in January???

IMG_1766

That wasn't all. This year, after Convention, my friends, Lynsay, Meg and Cindy flew to NYC to celebrate Megs birthday. Here we are at the top of the Freedom Tower, tallest building in the country... 1776 ft high. It was a great ending to a fabulous Stampin' Up! friends trip.

More sneak peeks of the upcoming Occasions Catalog 2018 coming soon!

Stampin Up "Thank You" card using the "You Move Me" stamp set

Once again I am coming to you from the Stampin Up Convention in SLC Utah. This time I have a swap that I made for our Stampin Up Advisory Board Alumni Dinner. This group of elite women are top demonstrators from all over the country!

The theme was "Thank you" cards for our amazing customers!

I wanted to use something sparkly and bright and with a unque fold. So, I chose the "You Move Me" stamp set, because I love the big, bold images in this set. I also used the ever so yummy, Foil Frenzy designer paper. This paper has my name written all over it!

IMG_0451

The colors used are berry burst and tangerine tango. They work beautifully together with the lemon lime twist in the Foil Frenzy designer paper. The Ombre Glitter Dots look great as the "body" of the butterfly.

IMG_0453

But the best part, is the surprise fold in the middle of the card...

IMG_0455

The dimensions of the pieces are as follows: Berry Burst: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Tangerine Tango: 8" x 3"- fold it in half. Whisper white: 3 3/4" x 2 3/4". You will need 2 pieces of the whisper white- one for the inside and one for the outside. The Foil Frenzy strips are: 1" x 4"- you will need 2 of these as well.

IMG_0454

I hope my Advisory Board sisters love their bright and shiny, "thank you" swap!

I thank you for visiting today.

Until the next time...
