Rocking with OnStage@Home

Yesterday, I shared with you some of the fun items I gave as team gifts for the OnStage event that is in full swing and so today I thought I’d share some of the fun items I got in the mail from Stampin’ Up! While we aren’t gathering with a LIVE event Stampin’ Up! is still pampering us with great swag!

Last night we kicked off the event with a private acoustical rock concert with Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo! Sooo cool!

You could feel the energy through our chat room! Good thing, my kids couldn’t see me rocking out and singing along to classics like Love is a Battlefield! They’d be so embarrassed.

We also recognized everyone’s accomplishments around the globe and several million dollar earners shared projects they created with the stamp sets they helped design that will be in the 2021 Mini. You’re going to love the variety of sets they’ve created!

During recognition last night I was recognized in 2 categories

Know, I don’t earn these on my own. I couldn’t do this without you and my team members! I can’t put into words just how much I appreciate all of my stampers who allow me to share what I love with them. I never thought my world would become so enriched when I started as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. Stamping and this journey with Stampin’ Up! has allowed me to learn and grow personally along with allowing me to meet and become friends with so many people I never would have met other wise. So thank you! What a great job I have!!!

While we are missing our special event for leaders called Center Stage Stampin’ Up! has sent us this little surprise to celebrate our accomplishments. It came in this lovely little box that coordinated with our swag box.

I love the way that Stampin’ Up! presents things – the packaging is always as beautiful as the gift and message!

Underneath was a great little gift and practical since they come in different colors and with a variety of charms too making it easy to identify mine.

I have to admit at first I was a bit perplexed by the bright blue ball at the end of this scissors charm, but later learned it is to protect and hold the point of the scissors when it’s not in it’s cover. What a aha moment that was. lol!

Want to see what was in the swag box? I’m loving the bright cheerful colors!

It was filled to the brim! with all kinds of goodies Grid Paper, note books, stickers, a fun gel pen and a OnStage bag! Can you name the colors? (I’ll list the answer below for you.)

I’m thinking this bag will be perfect for a day at the beach since there is a zippered pocket on the bottom too. (Can you say Maui? A great take along for our delayed incentive trip when we get to go next May) and these cute little pins are so much fun!

Not sure if I’ll have a chance to swap them yet, but this little guy is adorable with it’s big eyes and “snail mail”. I’m thinking they’ll be a sneak peek of what’s inside the 2021 January – June Mini!

What color is the Swag Box & Bag: Mango Melody, Magenta Madness, Pool Party, Pacific Point, and Granny Apple Green. The colors are soooo cheerful!!! How can you not smile?

#OnStage2019, Light & Peace and more

Today I thought I would share some of the Holiday Catalog swaps that I received during OnStage in Atlanta last weekend along with some more pictures.

I am going to begin with a 3d items I received – a cute tic tac holder using the Perfectly Plaid Suite of Products (153326). Absolutely adorable and perfect to give a little something!

And here are a couple of lovely cards. This first one uses the Perfectly Pines stamp stamp set (149418) teamed up with our Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper 9149478) from the Annual Catalog.

It is a square card that has a fun fold and opens a bit differently. Slip off the belly band and here is what you have.

fun, right?

And how about this elegant card using the Light & Peace stamp set (150516)?

Done in Blackberry Bliss it uses our Champagne Foil Sheets (144748), Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder (149575) along with our Silver (109131) and Shimmer Black Embossing Powders (149512).

These pictures just don’t do justice to these projects. (I’m still getting use to my camera and am really missing my old phone lol)


Friday night, Leaders gathered for what we call CenterStage, this is an event that includes a lovely evening of pampering before OnStage.

Susan and I stopped for a snap shot before going in. Who would have thought all those years ago she would inspire the dream of becoming a leader and earn an Incentive Trip. My husband Larry, joined me for the meetings after work regularly 10 years ago since we car pooled to his job after we moved. During one of the meetings, Susan spoke about the Alaskan Cruise which was the incentive trip that year. On the way home I can remember Larry asked me if I could do that to. I said yes, anyone could. He was so excited by the idea and has patiently supported me over the last 10 years as I worked toward this goal – and here I am! I am so appreciative and blessed to have earn the Maui trip and he’s soooo excited too!

I truly enjoy CentreStage as it is smaller and a chance to connect with old friends and meet new friends. Here I am with Lori whom I met during our first Atlanta OnStage years ago

And Barbara whom I’ve been doing my organized swaps with for years.

Stampin’ Up! is always very generous and there is always a special gift for us at the table

Our swag bags that include the NEW January – June Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration Brochure, Squeal!!!

And we have a chance to hear news about what is going to happen and speak with the folks from the home office.

Here I am with Tanner, who is over the Southeast Area. I think it is always fun to see the people we work with online. Don’t you?

Just a little taste of what last Friday was like. Stop back by – I’ll be share more swap swaps and more!

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!
