Blessings Of Home Cards

The Blessings Of Home Bundle is still current, but the Blessings Of Home Designer Series Paper is not. Here are some cards I made to use up some pieces of the paper that I had left:

USE IT UP: Welcoming Woods

Here's another set of cards I made with leftover pieces from my scrap box that are retired now. This is one of my all time favorite sets, "Welcoming Woods". I love birch trees! These are all the same layout and the same blended background, just the colors I stamped the trees and the embossed layer are different:

Early Espresso

Soft Suede

Crumb Cake

Basic Gray

Which do you like best? I kind of like the Gray, but Early Espresso is my favorite. It shows the most detail in the trees.

USE IT UP: Changing Greetings On Cards I Already Had

I had a table at a craft sale the first Saturday in November and sold all of the sympathy cards I had with me. It's sad that so many people needed that many sympathy cards! The next day I decided to go through all the cards I had left and see which ones I could change to sympathy. I started with some cards made with retired Sale-A-Bration "Flowering Foils" Specialty Designer Series Paper (from 2020!) that I made awhile ago but haven't shared yet:

This was such pretty paper! I had fun coloring it with Stampin' Blends and making these cards! 

Here they are when I made them individually so you can see them closer. Maybe you still have some of this paper and could do something similar!

Cherry Cobbler

Real Red

Poppy Parade

Sweet Sorbet

Mango Melody

Daffodil Delight

Rich Razzleberry

Flirty Flamingo

If you need a card for a certain occasion and don't have it, go through the cards you do have and see if you can change the greeting on one to what you need!

Kraft Gift Box From Betty For OnStage 2022

Betty always gives us a little gift when we go to Stampin' Up! events. This is what she gave us for OnStage in Indianapolis recently.

This started as a Kraft Gift Box  but look at how she decorated it! So pretty!

Inside there is a Versamark pad, pearls, and chocolate!

This is a bag tag to add to the bags we got from Stampin' Up!

So cute!

Thanks Betty!

OnStage 2022

I went to Stampin' Up!'s OnStage event in Indianapolis on November 12th. Six of us drove about 11 hours one way and it was SO MUCH FUN! We left Thursday afternoon, stayed in a hotel that night, then drove the rest of the way on Friday. Friday night was CentreStage, which was a reception for Leaders (based on sales and team members). Basically we got to register early, get our goodies, and then spend time catching up with everyone and eating ice cream! 

The OnStage logo and our boxes stacked up and waiting for us!

What was inside the boxes, plus we got a Stampin' Up! umbrella!
Two new stamp sets, a bag, notebook and pen. We also got our catalogs early!

The bag, which can be used as a purse! It's Evening Evergreen faux leather!

Saturday was the actual OnStage event. There were 800 of us there, which was the largest group of all the locations! The live event was held in Vienna Austria and was 2 1/2 days long. Then there were local one day events held in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and five locations in the US.

All the goodies we got during the event! New mini catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure, another stamp set, new Specialty Designer Series Papers, and a sneak peek of the December Paper Pumpkin kit! (little gift card holder boxes- so cute!)

We got to see lots of demonstrations using new products and there was also lots of recognition for demonstrators who earned awards for sales and leadership.

Terri & Betty went across stage for earning the incentive trip

Betty was recognized for $900,000 in lifetime sales! She's on her way to $1Million!

The claims published here are not representative of the typical Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. The level of sales required to achieve this result is accomplished by less than .001 percent of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.

Way to go Betty! We're so proud of you!

If you would like to experience a Stampin' Up! event, join my team! We also have fun at Betty's monthly Stamp Share! Click on the Join The Fun tab at the top of my blog for more or HERE if you're on your phone for more information and to get started! I would love to welcome you to my team!

Manette's Mountain Air Make & Take

Manette had a fun Make & Take for us at our October Stamp Share! I'm used to seeing cards with the whole mountain image in Mountain Air, so using just part of them was a great alternative.
