Color Revamp & CenterStage

Stampin’ Up! events are a lot of fun and because of you I’ve been lucky enough this year to attend CenterStage. This event is a special one since it is based on title and by invitation only.

We were pampered and given special training along with this color swatch ring. What does that mean for you? It means I get to share more with you of course – And I love to share with you!

So today I’ve whipped up a quick video sharing the Color Revamp  that is coming in the 2018 Annual Catalog – I thought seeing them “in person” would help. Of course you’ll be able to get your hands on them and play at my upcoming Catalog Kick Off (more details coming soon) and team meetings!

So what do you think? Love them? The great news is we can use them all! Just because some of our favorite colors are retiring doesn’t mean we have to stop using them, the Color Revamp just means more options! So you can still stock up on your favorite colors, card stock and other items during the Last Chance promotion.

Here are some more pics from CenterStage for you. Check in says it all…

The tables were decorated with an 80’s theme and strobe lights of course were flashing. I was sporting my shoulder pads!

Here are some of my table mates – Susan and Sherrie

And of course the big reveal! I was so excited to see the 2018 Annual Catalog for the first time! LOL we all flipped to see if Lovely as a Tree was still in the cattie along with our personal favorites!!

And a group shot of my extended stamping family that was there at the event.

What a night – it was so much fun! Here’s a quick shot of the swag we received for the night! Stampin’ Up! is always so generous

What could be better? Doing what I love, Sharing what I love, and meeting wonderful folks like you!

St. Patty’s Day Ferrero Roche Gift Box Video Tutorial

I recently attending a DIY Retreat and received these yummy little Ferrero Roche Chocolates at dinner. Of course everyone at the table was on a diet right now, so I ended up with a little pile of them. LOL! As I lined them up on my table they made me think of little pots of gold – so I couldn’t resist making a little box for them for St. Patrick’s Day!

Of course I couldn’t resist adding a little shine to this project, so I pulled out the fabulous Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper. The light green was perfect for this project!

These boxes are quick and easy to make so I whipped up a video tutorial for you in case you wanted to make some too!

So what do you think? Do you want to spread a little luck of the Irish and a little chocolate of course?!

If so I’ve also made a printable PDF tutorial with the supply list and measurements for you to go along with the video.
