Team Fun at the OnStage@Home After Party

I love sharing with my team and coming home after a Stampin’ Up! event is no different. While this year we gathered virtually we still were able to gather for an After party and share the excitement of the NEW 2021 January – June Mini Catalog.

So I created these cute little flag holders using the Quite Curvy Bundle (156228) that is currently available. I just love these little sweet birds!

I used the colors from our OnStage@Home swag so everything coordinated

and was able to put the logo on the inside of these folders with the little flag sticky notes. We are going to need lots of sticky notes!!!

I also put together some little charms using some images from the stamp sets, the catalog, and logo. Each one was a bit different

but they all had one thing in common – a prize patrol number!

Things were all set up for a light lunch and an couple of hours with the team.

Of course, no team event is without stamping, so I had packets for everyone with their little team gifts waiting for them all their stamping spot.

We also had a table to share all the Product Purchase Premiere goodies – there is nothing like being able to touch and feel in person!

And of course I shared my copy of the real Mini & Sale-a-bration Catalogs that they could look at too.

We made 4 projects using new products from the 2021 January – June Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration brochure.

And of course while we stamped prize patrol numbers were called and prizes were given out!

Lots of smiling faces

Want to see our projects?

Not only did stamp together, we got to use the new Blending Brushes found in the Mini Catalog and learn a fun new technique too.

I’ll be sharing these projects with you later so stop back by to see my tutorials and videos for these projects and more!

So what do you think? Sound like fun? Love the new items too? It’s just a peek of what’s inside the 2021 January – June Mini Catalog! And as I am sure you can guess, being the first to see this new catalog or any of our new catalogs is a very exciting AND a  huge perk of being a Demonstrator – after all who wouldn’t want to be first? Right! 

Add the fact that you’ll receive a discount on all these products and you can’t lose! If you feel this is a good time to join Stampin’ Up! and my team, the Blue Mountain Stampers, you too can be first too!

Team Time Fun

Each month we gather to stamp and share with each other and so today I thought I’d share some of the fun cards that my team members have created over the past 2 months. I can’t believe they got buried on my desk and I haven’t shared them with you before now.

These first 2 cards use the Country Home stamp set (147678) from the Annual Catalog that you can find on page 90. This first one uses the beautiful Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper (153527) to choose it’s color pallet.

And both these cards have been colored with our Stampin’ Blends which gives them that great bold rich, color.

And here is fun fold card using the Beautiful Autumn Stamp set () and lovely Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper (153520).

This card uses the fun impossible fold to create a card that pops up but mails flat.

And one using our Stitched Leaves Dies (153567) that has been teamed up with the colorful Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper (153527) again.

I really like the way these dies have the stitched edging that can be used on negative images like this and on the positive images too.

A gratitude journal made with the lovely Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper (152488) – done in 6×6 and filled with paper to fill. A page for each person to personalize or use it as a lovely book to use yourself.

This next project uses the Grace’s Garden stamp set (151513) and is a fun fold card.

That once again folds flat for mailing.

This next grouping of projects is for Christmas and I’ll continue with some more fun folds. First this easel card that uses the Sweetest Time Bundle (155169).

And last but not least Shirley shared some little wooden pumpkins she made using the technique we used during our Peak Princess Event. You can see more and the tutorial for that project about that HERE.

And how about some Christmas projects? This first card uses the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper (153487) and teams it up with the beautiful Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty Paper (152493)

And for a here is a fun fold teepee card using our Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper (150444) with it’s beautiful images.

Champagne foil Sheets (144748) were cut out using the Forever Flourishing Dies (152714) and were used as a backdrop for the sentiment. This card also folds flat for mailing simply by undoing the well placed velcro dot.

And now for some fun 3d projects – A cute little box that holds a couple of nuggets using the Little Treats stamp set (153516).

And fun tags using a variety of the holiday stamp sets found in the Annual and Holiday catalog. Can you name them all?

There are 4 different stamp sets used for these tags. Don’t look if you are still guessing but here is the list. Detailed Doves (153406), Christmas Gleaming (150464), Merry Moose (150494), and Perfectly Plaid (149418). Hand made tags for your packages make them extra special and are a lot of fun to make!

whew… what did I tell you, lots of great projects! I’m truly blessed with such a great team to share and stamp with.

Beautiful Autumn Tiny Treat Box & More Team fun!

Yesterday I shared the Home Decor project that we made at the Peak Princess event this past weekend, today I thought I’d share the little treat item that I made.

They are filled with these fun fall Hershey’s Kisses that I found locally.

I just love the colors of the candy – yes, I do shop for candy that way. (My daughter thinks this is a pretty crazy way to shop for chocolate, but she is always on the hunt for me too!)

These treats were quick and easy to make for everyone. I have whipped up a quick video so you can make some to if you’d like.

Beautiful Autumn Tiny Treat Box Video Tutorial


And of course it’s always fun to have a PDF that contains a complete supply list for projects. So here it is.

Beautiful Autumn Tiny Treat Box Tutorial PDF

I also mentioned I’d share some more photos so here are a couple from the classroom.

This last picture is of the Sweet Potato Crostini I made for the event. The marshmallows spent a bit too much time under the broiler I’m afraid. Don’t you hate that? But they were still quite tasty.

They were a big hit with my guys so I thought you might enjoy the recipe – they are light, tasty and easy to do.


Sweet Potato Crostini

2 T. sugar

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

24 slices 1/4″ thick French bread baguette

2 to 3 T butter, melted

Topping:

2 c. mashed sweet potatoes

1/4 c. chopped pecans

3 T. packed brown sugar

2 T. butter, melted

1 1/4 c. miniature marshmallows, halved

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix sugar and cinnamon. Arrange bread sliced ona baking sheet. Brush with butter; sprinkle with sugar mixture. Bake until lightly browned, 5-7 minutes. Remove from oven; preheat broiler.

Mix sweet potatoes, pecans, brown sugar, and butter; spread over toasts. Top with marshmallows, pressing lightly. Broil 3-4 inches from heat until marshmallows are lightly toasted, 1-2 minutes.


So easy and tasty too!

Enjoy!

Team Fun & the Gilded Autumn Pumpkin Home Décor Project

This past weekend I gathered with my Team, The Blue Mountain Stampers for a special biannual event. This event allows us to gather and celebrate everyone’s accomplishments over the last 6 months. We have a special project, along with prizes, and appetizers. So today I thought I’d share our project that we made.

This project was a lot of fun to make and everyone’s turned out differently since they could decide on which patterns they wanted to use. Here is mine.

I really love the colors and patterns of the Gilded Autumn Suite of Products and so I couldn’t resist making a home décor item with them. I also really love the way the little swirls of copper ribbon finish off this project. They are so easy to make – I bet you are wondering how I made them too!

You’ll need a wooden skewer or dowel along with your heat tool and Heavy Spray Starch. Yep, that’s it! You’ll also need a bit of patience as you make them since it does require some dry time tho. I’m not sure how they would hold up outside, but since I’m planning on using this project inside my home I wasn’t worried about our heavy Georgia humidity of late.

Want to see how we made them? Here is a video for you.

I’ve also included a link for the pumpkins and PDF pattern on this Tutorial for you.

Want to make some of these too? Here is the information on the wooded pumpkins for you that I found on Amazon along with a PDF pattern for this pumpkin.

I really love these gatherings we have a lot of fun together and it’s a great time to share what’s been happening in our lives, and relax too. Here are a couple of pictures for you of some of the finished projects.

Painted Poppies & More

Today’s cards are swaps that my team members brought to share at our January Team Meeting. I always enjoy seeing what they are crafting since everyone’s styles can be so different and well, it’s just fun to share.

These first two cards use the Painted Poppies stamp set (151599) and products from the Peaceful Poppies Suite (153938). This first card shows off the mirror image effect you can create with the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper (151324). When you cut the sheet into 4″ sections and then cut them in half again, you match up the mirror images. How cool is that?

This next card uses a Crossover Gate Fold to show off the suite of products.

If you love these cards and the Suite of products you may want to check out my February Class schedule and my Peaceful Poppies Class. Not only will you get a class with me when you’ll learn how to use the products, you’ll also receive great products so you can go home and immediately start stamping! CLICK HERE to see my Calendar of Events and learn more about my classes, both live and Kits to Go.

Here is another fancy fold, this time a Double Door fold using the Stitched Be Mine Dies (148527) from the Annual Catalog.

It’s been teamed up with the lovely From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper (151189) and a sentiment from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set (151345).

And finally last, but not least a lovely card using the Daisy Lane stamp set (149325) and coordinating Daisy Punches (143713 and 149517).

Done in Cherry Cobbler and Blushing Bride it uses our Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack (149615) for the small gingham background. It’s soft and sweet and perfect to send to a friend.

I feel really blessed to have such a great group of stampers and we always have the best time together sharing and stamping.

#OnStage2019 Swaps, a Sneak Peek & More

Today I’ll be sharing a few more swaps that I received from folks during the OnStage event in Atlanta along with my sneak peek of the goodies I received from the 2020 January – June Mini Catalog Product Purchase Premiere!

I’ll start with the swaps first all of these sets can be found in our 2019 Annual Catalog. Swapping cards is a way for us to share and meet other stampers and I always love the variety of cards. This first card uses the Accented Blooms stamp set (151336).

And this next card uses one of my favorite sets Back on Your Feet (149385) – seems like I’ve needed lots of get well cards this year.

And how about this fun tropical feeling card – perfect for warming up that cold arctic blast we were experiencing last week. The Tropical Chic stamp set (148226) has a set of coordinating dies which makes it a lot of fun to use.

And a fun card that uses strips to create a colorful back ground and it uses

the Love What You Do stamp set (148042) which has some wonderful sentiments in it. And here is a card made with our Butterfly Beauty Dies (148536) and the Butterfly Gala stamp set (148580) two very popular products.

And how about this next card using the Dandelion Wishes stamp set (151345)?

My final swap to share with you today uses the Winds of Change Stamp set (149357),

Got a favorite? Why not leave me a comment and let me know which one you like best?

More #OnStage2019 Fun

Here are a few more photos from the event – it was so much fun having my team there to celebrate with me. Stampin’ Up! always makes the tables a fest for your eyes with it’s colors and images. And of course a gift.

prize patrol is always a hit

And of course a little stamping too rounds out the event – what fun to see and try the products!

And some recognition too – I was excited to celebrate my earning of the Maui Trip and my 10th Anniversary as a Demonstrator. In addition, I was surprised to learn I was 48th in the US as a Team Leader. (Currently there are 37,591 Demonstrators in the US and 52,142 in the World.)

I’m truly thankful, grateful and blessed! I appreciate the fact I have the most wonderful Team, The Blue Mountain Stampers and the best customers a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator could ask for!!!

And now for the sneak peek I know you’ve been waiting for – Here is my video of my unpacking of my 2020 January – June Mini Catalog & 2020 Sale-a-bration products that I was able to order during after OnStage during the Product Purchase Premiere.

#OnStage2019 Bird Ballard Flip Album

Whew, it’s been a busy weekend and I’m just catching up. I had a fantastic time over the weekend at our OnStage Local in Atlanta. It’s always great to meet new friends! Friday I shared one of the table 3d treats I made for folks and today I wanted to share the fun flip album I made as part of my team gifts for the event.

I just love the Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper with all it’s lovely water colored images so it was a perfect choice for this project as we were getting our first look at the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog & Sale-a-bration Brochure. (You are going to LOVE it!)

This album was fairly easy to whip up and is perfect for all kinds of events, trips, or even a brag book for Grandma! It will hold up to 10 photos including a 4×6, but is compact so it’s easy to store or take along with you.

I’ve made a video tutorial for you so you can see how I created this Flip Album

Bird Ballard Flip Album Video Tutorial

And if you’d like the complete supply list, measurements, and a step by step tutorial that contains some additional photos to go along with it here is my PDF version too.

So what do you think? Like it and want to make one too? Why not leave me a comment and let me know?

#OnStage2019 – Atlanta

I loved having our largest group yet from our team attend and I think everyone had a blast learning, sharing, and meeting others from across the country.

I’ll be sharing more of our #OnStage2019 experience through out the week as I unpack things. So stop on by to check out some sneak peaks too!

Team Time fun with the Come to Gather Suite

Last week I held my monthly Team Meeting, it is one of my favorite days of the month. We gather, share, stamp, and enjoy time with each other. I’m blessed with a wonderful team that is also a great group of stampers. Because we all have been stamping for different lengths of time and have different styles, I always look forward to seeing what they have been creating.

Want to see? The theme for our swap this month was fall and none of the projects disappoint!

Here is a great treat box with a drawer that slides out

filled with a banana Twinkie, yum.

And a cute little sticky note holder using our Stitched Nested Label Dies.

And here is a quick and easy wrap for some mini chocolate bars – the sentiment is from the Painted Harvest stamp set found in our Annual Catalog.

And a few more cards

Pat created this next project using our Copper Embossing Powder and the trifold card measurements I shared with you earlier

And this final card uses our Gift of Fall Add On Note Card, the coordinating Paper Pumpkin stamp set, along with the Seasonal Layers Dies and Rectangle Stitched Dies.

I love the way that our Paper Pumpkin Kits coordinating with our products, allowing us to have even more options.

And of course every team meeting includes celebrating accomplishments, stamping, and learning new things too.

👑Peak Princess Fun & the Amazing Magnolia Lane Folding Album

Last weekend was my Peak Princess event. What’s that? Well it is a special afternoon of pampering for those Team members who have earned it. We enjoy the time together, food, played a game, and of course create a project.

This event was extra special since it was our largest group yet due to everyone’s hard work – and I added a bit of a luau theme to the snack table to celebrate.

The hit of the snack table was the Artichoke & Mushroom Toast – not really Hawaiian fair, but since the Hawaiian pizza rolls I was planning on were a flop when I tried them, this worked out well since everyone seem to enjoy them.

Here is the recipe if you want to try them yourself. I found them really easy to do and prepped everything the day before and then assembled before the event.

Artichoke & Mushroom Toast

Taste of Home

  • 36 slices French bread baguette (1/2 inch thick)
  • 3 T. Olive Oil, divided
  • ½ lb. sliced fresh mushrooms
  • ½ lb. sliced baby portobello mushrooms
  • ½ tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 2 T. butter
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 jar (7.5 oz) marinated quartered artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1/3 c. mayonnaise
  • 1 T. Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 2 c. Swiss cheese, shredded

Place bread on baking sheets; brush with 2 tablespoons oil. Broil 4-6 inches from heat for 1-2 minutes or until lightly toasted.

In a large skillet, sauté mushrooms with Italian seasoning in butter and remaining oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Remove from heat and set aside.

Place artichokes in a food processor; cover and process until finely chopped. Add mayonnaise and Parmesan cheese; cover and process until blended. Spread over toast slices; top with mushrooms and sprinkle with Swiss cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 4-6 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Yield 3 dozen

And here is the classroom waiting for everyone to arrive.

I shared the little Country Home Kit Kat Holders which were everyone’s “pillow gifts” on the table with you yesterday – I thought the thankful greeting was perfect to express my thanks to my team.

We enjoyed a game after everyone settled in –

Have you ever played the Right, Left Game? It’s so simple…. everyone starts with a package and then we passed our packages to the right or left depending on the Ink Pad story I read.

Lot’s of fun and laughter to go around!

After we did a Make n Take and created these lovely Folding Albums. My friend, Marni gave me one of these little albums last spring in a swap and I loved it so much. I saved it since I knew it was the perfect project for the day. I simply put my own spin on it.

It wasn’t hard to choose the paper I wanted to use. The Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper is so striking and you’ve got a ton of pattern choices in the package. Here is what the album looks like opened.

I’m looking forward to filling it with some photos!

Here is the gang working on theirs

Want to see how I made this album? The Team enjoyed making them so much I thought you would too!

Oh, I almost forgot the tag or chip board is simply the extra piece in our Specialty Designer Series Paper packs – How great is that? You can up cycle it!

So what do you think? Want to make one for yourself? I think they make great gifts and of course you could stamp on the inside diamonds if you prefer rather than use it as an photo album. I think there are endless ways to use this amazing album!

Here is a printable version with the complete supply list I used.

Country Home Kit Kat Holder

This past weekend was my team Peak Princess event and so I wanted to make something special for my team members that earned this special event during the first quarter. Naturally the Country Home stamp set came to mind with it’s lovely sentiments and images. The fact that I could use the fun new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint on the cotton pods from the Holiday Catalog was an added bonus and a ton of fun!

Check out these elegantly wrapped treats

And since this holder fits a full size Kit Kat Bar there is plenty to share if you want too!

They are simple to make, use a sheet of card stock and I really like how the back opens to show your sentiment.

See how I made it and the magic of the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint here in my video tutorial.
