#OnStage Houston and more

Whew. I’m catching back up after returning from Houston and the fantastic Stampin’ Up! event there. So today I thought I’d share some photos and some of the swaps I received during the event.

Stampin’ Up! outdid themselves with this event and the excitement was high – it’s been along time since we have been able to gather like this. My husband, Larry joined me for this event since we have family in Houston and would spend some time with them after.

Yep, that’s my cutie enjoying a bit of lazy river time on top of the Marriott with myself and other demonstrators before check in time for the event. He seemed to enjoy the energy that surrounded him and I had a hard time getting him to give me back my bag as I got ready for the General Session to start. Check out the goodies our Summer Splash trimmed backpack was filled with. A fun crafting bag tucks in the bottom and slides out through the pocket and a coordinating pencil “cup” bag in our new In Color Pretty in Pink.

A wonderful beginning for sure where I had a lovely opportunity to connect with some new stamping friends. A quick dinner at the Saltgrass Steak House with some yummy food

and then on to After Hours and some on hand stamping fun with new products from the 2024 Annual Catalog!

Hundreds of us filled the space for an full evening of stamping, laughter, and fun. Everyone was excited to see the new products and In Colors! They sure didn’t disappoint. I choose one of the Bundles, Spotlight on Nature (163579) that was offered since it has some great images and basic shape dies.

I’m looking forward to sharing these projects and more with you soon. Along with more photos from the event throughout this week.

Now how about some swaps? I thought I’d share of my Easter swaps with you since it is right around the corner. There were some really cute projects swapped for Easter here are a few that I received.

This first one is a fun little 3d treat holder that uses the Diaper Fold.

This little treat uses our Excellent Eggs Bundle (Retiring 162808) and our Subtles Designer Series Paper (Retiring 161644). And this soft and sweet card also uses the Excellent Eggs Dies (Retiring 162807) in the background for the little bunny but has a totally different feel to it.

The sentiment has been punched out using the Double Oval Punch (Retiring 154242) and the sweet little bow was created using the 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon Combo Pack (Retiring 161635). Sweet, right?

And finally a bright and cheerful card using the Easter Bunny Stamp set (Retiring 160272) and Easter Bunny Punch (Retiring 160331).

Isn’t the little pompom adorable for the tail? Colored with Crumb Cake Blends to pull in the dry embossed background using the Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder (160580) and cheerful Glorious Gingham 6×6 Designer Series Paper (Retiring 163170). The Stylish Shapes Dies (159183) were used to cut both the opening for the bunny and sentiment.

That’s it for the day. Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some more photos and swaps with you.
