More #OnStage Swapping Fun!

Yesterday, I shared some of the cards I received during the swapping at OnStage and I’ve got more to share with you today. These stamping events are always fun and there is a lot more to them than swapping. We learn, see new products, share and stamp together too. So it’s always a good time. You’ll want to keep reading because today I’ll share more than just my swaps with you, but I’ll be starting there with a Christmas Barn Bundle card.

Done in neutral tones this card is simple and elegant with a classic country feel. Love embossing folders? How about this card that uses the Whimsical Woodland 3D Embossing Folder to create a quick and simple card that packs a wow.

And this next card Night of Navy and the Christmas Scottie sentiment for this charming card.

I just love the way our products work together, don’t you? Here is a bright and cheerful card using the Christmas Scottie set too but this time done in Parakeet Party. After all it’s not just a holiday set.

The Christmas Scottie makes great 3d projects too – check out these 2 treat holders.

Making treats is always soo fun. And speaking of dogs, how about a little elephant? This next card uses the Elephant Parade stamp set and coordinating dies to create a little holiday card.

And for a traditional feel Here are a couple of cards that use two of our wonderful sentiment sets Christmas to Remember and Brightest Glow. So easy to team them up with your favorite papers like these cards do!

Non traditional colors have been used on the last couple of cards I’ll be sharing with you today. This first one uses our Decorated with Happiness Bundle and teams up our Sweet Sorbet with Soft Succulent.

And the beautiful Framed Florets Bundle that is currently available with it’s limited time products as a sneak peek from the 2023 Mini.

This is just a few of the lovely projects I received as I swapped last Saturday.

I’ve never been to Jacksonville and really enjoyed my time there. I was thankfully the hurricane didn’t cause more issues than it did for everyone. It was a rainy drive in from Clarkesville as Nicole moved her way north into Georgia, but the sun was out when I arrived in Jacksonville and the river and all it’s bridges were quite lovely.

In addition to swapping I was able to attend Center Stage and receive new 2023 Mini & Sale-a-bration catalogs, NEW products, and a special CenterStage gift.

The beautiful umbrella opened to have a fun pop of color on the inside. It will be fun looking up and seeing all these wonderful colors on a rainy day.

Of course, during OnStage there are always prize patrols during the event and lovely decorated tables to enjoy for the day. You’re going to love our NEW Specialty Papers!

We also got to stamp a bit and were able to use the new Kit that is now available called, The Timeless Greetings Kit (161062). I really enjoyed all the texture and the look of these cards and since it contains everything you need to craft it makes a wonderful gift too!

As always Stampin’ Up! spoils us with our swag bag and prize patrol and fun demonstrations! I can’t wait for our next gathering.

I’m working on my 2023 January – June Mini & Sale-a-bration Catalog mailing list now and will finalize it November 25th. If you have placed an order with me during the last 3 months, you’ll automatically get a copy.  And of course, if you place an order with me by November 25th you’ll also be included and receive a copy by mail.

Well that’s it for today. Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing my little table gift that I made for those sitting with me a cute little treat box made with the Christmas Scottie Bundle.

Christmas Barn

Rolling hills, Blue Spruce, the Lake front, beer battered fish fries, Lannon stone, and red barns. These are all things that remind me of the area I grew up in. I recently returned from my High School Class Reunion and didn’t realize I’d forgotten beautiful it was in Wisconsin. I hadn’t been back home for 27 years, so it was a lot of fun catching with my brother and friends. It also reminded me as to why I enjoy the crash of the waves on the beach and the rolling hills of North Georgia so much. So today I thought I’d share some cards with you that make me think of my childhood.

These first two cards use the Christmas Barn Bundle (159747) from the Mini Catalog found on page 28.

These big majestic barns dot the landscape still and hark back to those memories of Thanksgiving at my Uncle Rodger’s house. He was a dairy farmer and that barn wasn’t far from the house. Of course, the dairy cows set the schedule for life and meals back then for many families.

This next fun fold card uses the Brewed For YOU (159087) stamp set found on page 83 of the Annual Catalog. It also has a set of coordinating dies that can be purchased in a money saving bundle giving you a lot of crafting options. With all the craft breweries popping up here in my area the past years, it’s sure to be a hit.

Prost! (that’s German for cheers) Food always goes hand in hand with local taverns for me that are dotted across the country side, especially the Friday night fish fries with beer batter! Funny the things we remember from childhood, isn’t it?

Here is a picture of my Great Grandfather Roecker’s farm. So many of the old family homes are gone now that I remember from my childhood, but it was a lovely fall day to drive around the country roads with my brother.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some cards using the Hope & Prayer stamp set from the Annual Catalog.
