Stampin' Up! On Stage 2015

It is always a good time getting together with 400 of your Stampin' Up! sisters and sharing new and exciting products and having fun!  On Stage Tampa was such a great event!  It was a chance to share new product and information that will be coming in January 2016 and get to do some stamping as well!  Take a peek.....

 Tahnee and I enjoying On Stage Tampa while we wait to see **NEW** Stampin' Up! product!

 Of course we had some stamping time using **NEW** products (stamps, paper, embellishments, and tools) from the 2016 Spring Occasions Catalog.  Oh, did I mention.....we got to leave the event with our very own copy of the **NEW** catalog and Sale-a-Bration catalog?! Yay!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Stamping!

October Stamp Club 2015

Time for fall, pumpkins, and maybe a Christmas card! The October Stamp Club made 2 fall inspired cards and1 Christmas card!

I LOVE the way this card turned out!  The Woodland Textured Embossing Folder gives it the perfect touch to pair with the Vintage Leaves stamp set and matching Leaflets Framelits Dies!  The colors used are Tip Top Taupe, Mossy Meadow, Lost Lagoon, and Hello Honey.
 I had to get one Christmas card in the mix to get ready for the holiday season!  Don't the trees from the Lots of Joy stamp set look festive?!  Especially the tree punched in all Gold Glimmer paper!  Notice the greeting "Noel"?  It is from the same stamp set, only I used a marker to color the image of the words and not the rest of the stamped image!



 Our second Fall inspired card was sweet and simple!  I cannot get enough of the Woodgrain background stamp; this time it was stamped on Crumb Cake cardstock.  Also, we added a few sprigs of leaves from the Bird Builder punch and some banner pieces of Old Olive and Blackberry Bliss cardstock to finish off the card.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Stampin' Up! Convention 2015

I absolutely LOVE Stampin' Up! Annual Convention and 2015 was every bit of fun, friendships and stamping!  It was especially fun to share this year's Convention with my mom; her first trip to Utah and her first Stampin' Up! event.

My mom, Jan, and I getting ready for the Opening General Session to kick-start the weekend!

I love meeting up with my Stampin' Up! demo friends!  Brandy Cox, and my NEW Instagram friend that I finally got to meet in person, Dana Leigh Lewis!


Our 2015 Convention bag is the Stampin' Up! color Basic Grey and is a wool material with lots of room inside for stamps, ink, markers, ribbon, etc, etc, etc 

I received this lovely decorated gift box from my Stampin' Up! demonstrator upline, Jan Reid!

Prize Patrol is a highlight of Convention; receiving FREE gifts according to the color of your wristband!  Marcia and I had Marina Mist and were winners of a NEW Project Life Stamp Set and Grid Cards!

Stamping is a fun part of Convention; here Jan and I are making a tag with some new products that will be featured in the 2015 HOLIDAY CATALOG! 

Meeting up with more of my Demo friends!  Jennifer Blomquist, Marcia Swanson, and Marianne Stuard
