Crafting Forever Note Pad & Pen Holder

It’s been a rough night here in North Georgia as the storms associated with this latest front moves through, and I’m a bit sleep deprived from the storms. I hope that as you read this you are safe this Easter weekend where ever you are.

Today’s post is going to share the project that I made for my team members as part of their OnStage gifts last weekend.

I’ve had several ask me how they were made – so while I’m using a demonstrator supply item to create these, I’ll be giving you an option so you can make some too. Here is a close up.

These Note Pad & Pen Holders have a 4×6 pad of paper in them that I picked up at my local dollar store. Perfect for jotting tons of notes – I’m always creating a list so I knew these would be great for my Team members too.

Here is a my video tutorial for you

Crafting Forever Note Pad & Pen Holder Video Tutorial

And of course a PDF tutorial too.

Crafting Forever Note Pad & Pen Holder PDF

If you love the floral image I used – you can make some too by using our Floral Grid Paper (150819). This is a special package of our grid paper and it is being offered while supplies last. You can see it in my video and while it isn’t exactly the same – it will work. Simply create a folder using a piece of card stock or even the tag board from your Designer Series Paper pack and cut the grid paper as desired to fit. Yep, it’s that easy! It’s not just grid paper LOL! I’ve included this option in the PDF also.

What do you think? Want to make some too?

Supplies:

Stamp Set: Crafting Forever (143955/143958)

Inks: Night of Navy (147110/103033) and Calypso Coral Classic Ink (147101/122934)

OnStage 2019 Annual Catalog Product Purchase Premiere Sneak Peek & More

I received my OnStage Product Purchase Premiere goodies yesterday afternoon and didn’t get the video uploaded until late, so today I’m sharing it since I wanted to give you a sneak peek of what is coming! You are going to fall in love with the NEW In Colors – I know I have!

Friday night I was able to attend CenterStage. The excitement was high as we entered that evening.

I love this event since it is a much smaller group of us – it’s a great chance to share and make new friends over a lovely meal.

The excitement is always high since it is our first time together AND our first peek at the 2019 Annual Catalog.

And of course Stampin’ Up! makes it extra special with an CenterStage gift – check out this beautiful wrist purse and punch.

Saturday morning when we entered the room – the tables were set up and decorated

I always enjoy seeing how they “hide” our Make n Takes in the center piece of the table – they are hiding in the Stampin’ Up! box this time, perfect coordination for our Follow Your Art Suite. lol!

Want to see some more pics of OnStage – Charlotte?  Here are some more of our time together.

Everyone was excited to get their catalogs first thing! (That’s our new stamping friend on the far right, Orliea who joined us at our table.)

And of course, what would be a Stampin’ Up! event without stamping together?

Prize Patrol is always great fun – and Stampin’ Up! is always so generous!

I can’t believe everything I received at OnStage, I couldn’t fit it all in my bag!

I was thrilled to be able to share my walk across the stage for reaching my $100,000 sales goal this February with my team there. And touched by my team who was waiting for me right below the stage snapping pictures and cheering me on. How special they made me feel!

I’m so lucky to be able to share what I love with you. I truly appreciate you and am so blessed to have met such wonderful friends over these past 10 years. I can’t imagine what my life would have been like if I hadn’t started down this road all those years ago. I couldn’t do this without you, my wonderful customers and team members!

What can I say? Can you tell? I LOVE the creative time, getting to meet new stamping friends, and of course time with my team time too! I can’t wait until November when we’ll be doing doing this again in Atlanta!!!

Butterfly Gala Floating Frame

Today’s project is one that I made for part of my Team gift that I gave everyone attending OnStage in Charlotte this past weekend. It’s a twist on the floating frame cards you’ve been seeing pop up – but this really is a frame lol. I thought it would be great to have a special frame of our stamping friends and a reminder of the wonderful time we had last weekend.

I really like the way the frame turned, out so I thought I’d share a video tutorial with you on how I made them. They are really easy to do. It’s a few days late since the first time I filmed it the file was corrupted so I had to do it again, not sure exactly why, but then that is the way with technology, right?

I’ve used the Stampin’ Blends to color the butterflies and I chose the shades of blue since our Team name is The Blue Mountain Stampers. Get it?

I placed those that I could on their pillows once we arrived in Charlotte.

The bags were stamped using the retiring Bloom by Bloom stamp set (148820) and Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper (148795) was used for the tags.

I also used the Large Letter Framelits (141712) that are also on the retirement list for the tags – boy, do I hate to see these go, I use them all the time! Get yours before the supply is gone.

And here is a close up of the back.

Want to see how I made these Butterfly Gala floating frames?

Here is a video for you and of course a PDF tutorial too. I’ve also included a complete supply list below for you so you can make some too. So keep scrolling since it is at the very bottom!

Retirement List: Please note that I’ve updated the PDF with items that are carrying over noted. They are both highlighted and * is behind their names. These items are being reconfigure and will only be offered in our new Cling offering in the 2019 Annual Catalog. Please let me know if you have any questions I know that the lists can be a bit confusing. The easiest way to see everything is in my Online Store HERE.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’m hoping to post some of the fun of OnStage with you – today I’m heading to the vet. Our four legged family member, Chewie decided to have a run in with the fence and lost on Friday night while I was gone to OnStage.

Poor thing. She has needed a lot of extra attention since I’ve been home and is not liking the confinement needed so she can heal.

Enjoy!

Team time at OnStage

Today’s projects are some fun ones that I always enjoy doing when we have a Stampin’ Up! event for my team. And I’m excited to be heading for our OnStage Local in Charlotte this weekend. What could be better than spending time with others who love stamping?

However when you are with hundreds of other demonstrators who all have the same bag – I find it is fun to have yours easily identifiable with a special name tag. So here is what I came up with for our Charlotte event.

I love the little charms I’ve added to the tag too. They are so much fun to make – and I found some beads that I think went nicely with what I expect to be some of our new 2019-2021 In Colors!

After the event they can be added to our key chains if they’d like. And to help them jot down all the great ideas – everyone needs a note book and pen. I used our Crafting Forever stamp set (14955/143958) and the Layering Circles Framelits Dies (141705) to create the sentiment.

And I used the sentiment set from Sale-a-bration for the inside. I am truly blessed by my Team, they inspire me every time we gather.

I’ll be sharing a tutorial for these when I get back – they were so much fun to make! I’m afraid I just ran out of time this week.

And finally some post its so that we can flag all those new products that we want! I know this years Annual Catalog is going to be a great one. (I’m sure my shopping list will be a long one) – I can’t wait to see it!

I really like the way that the note pad and flag holders turned out. They were made with a demonstrator supply folder that I cut apart. I love the flowers so I was happy I was able to make the flowers on the front of the folder the focal point, and the back of the folder had our logo which was perfect for the flags I thought.

I had planned on sharing a video tutorial with you today of the final gift, but my IPad apparently didn’t like something I did since the file is corrupted, so I’ll be sharing that with you next week as soon as I can re film the project.

Enjoy your weekend and stop back by next week to see the OnStage fun and a sneak peek at the new 2019 Annual Catalog.

Speaking of which The Annual Catalog is right around the corner and I won’t be able to mail you one if you have chosen no contact in the Online Store.
