Jan's Sunshine Wishes Pocket Bag Tag

One of the ladies in our group, Jan, made all of us tags for our OnStage bags in Milwaukee. She is such a sweetheart and the tags are so cute! Perfect for our group, which is called the Sunshine Stampers!



There was also two Ghirardelli chocolates inside! They didn't make it home or into the picture! :)

New Ink Pads

Stampin' Up! has redesigned their stamp pads! They're easier to open, have a tighter fit, are stackable, and they improved labels, including one to put on the inside so you can see what color you're using when the pad is open. You can read about the changes from Stampin' Up! HERE, but I thought I'd share some pictures of the ink pad I received at OnStage.



Instead of pushing the top of the pad to open, all you have to do is lift!


Flipped all the way open


And slid together - notice the color label!


Old style next to the new style - the actual ink pad inside is the same size


Here's the new one with my old ones

I'm excited about the new design!

OnStage Milwaukee Goodies

Stampin' Up! always gives us lots of goodies at an event, and this OnStage was no exception!


A reversible tote bag, my name tag, the new catalog (!), a new stamp set, a planner, pack of 3 pens, and the agenda for the day (I put that there to show the logo, but then ended up covering it with the pens- oops!)


I came home with five stamp sets total! 1 in the bag, 1 from prize patrol, 1 all attendee give away, and 2 from our make and takes (we got to divide up all the supplies between the 6 of us at our table- that's how I got the dots, twine and punch)

The next OnStage is going to be in Orlando in November and will be the final celebration of Stampin' Up's 30th Anniversary year! If you want to join us, you need to be a demonstrator! Ask me for more information if you're interested! We'd love to have you!

OnStage CentreStage Milwaukee, NEW 2018-2019 Catalog!

I went to Milwaukee April 6-8 for Stampin' Up!'s OnStage. It's our twice a year Convention and is so much fun! Especially since I got to go to CentreStage, which is a special event Friday night for Demonstrators that are Silver Elite and up. There was a delicious buffet dinner (turkey, pulled pork, beans, creamed corn, rolls, and peach cobbler for dessert). Shelli Gardner, co-founder of Stampin' Up! was our emcee! She did some stamping and shared lots of great ideas and information! We also got the new catalog! WOW! I don't know how they do it, but every year gets better and better!


My official certificate came in the mail just before I left. Thank you to everyone who helped me achieve this promotion!

Here's a picture of all the goodies I received at CentreStage:


Clockwise from top left: insulated mug, box with the 30th anniversary logo that had the cool light box in it, a tambourine to make noise during CentreStage, a new style ink pad, In Color Markers, invitation to CentreStage, notebook and pencil, new velvet ribbon, and a color swatch with samples of all the cardstock colors!

And here is the new catalog!


Isn't it gorgeous? All the colors! Can't wait for it to start on June 1st!

I should have catalogs to start handing out mid-May. Let me know if you would like one!


Shelli and Sterling were on our flight from Milwaukee to Minneapolis (they had a layover in Minneapolis before flying back to Salt Lake City). My downline Sandy asked Shelli to sign her catalog.

USE IT UP Love You Lots Hedgehog Friends

I used a retired stamp set and In Color Envelope Paper on these cards, but in my defense, they weren't retired when I started them! Do you ever start projects and set them aside for "later" and then find them WAY later? That's what happened with all of the cards I've shared this week! That's why I've been trying to get them done and get caught up!



Colors: Crumb Cake, Delightful Dijon, Garden Green, Whisper White

Retired Stamp Set: Love You Lots (Host set from 2016-2017 Annual Catalog)
