More OnStage Swaps & Team Gifts

I’ve got soo many great cards to share with you I’m not sure where to start – so today’s post  will be focusing on some of the cards I made during Sherrie’s Shoe box Swap again. All the sets can be found in our Annual Catalog.

This first one using the Floral Frames stamp set (146505/146508) we heat embossed the image and sentiment using White Embossing Powder and then used our Smoky Slate Blends Combo Pack (145058) to color in the images. So simple – but clearly beautiful as you can see.

And this next card uses the Friendly Expressions stamp set (146670/146673).

Done in Night of Navy and Granny Apple Green with a splatter of our Frost White Shimmer Paint (147046) I think the combination is quite striking.

These two were my favorites from today’s cards – but here are some more great cards too.

How about this fun and vibrant card using the Varied Vases stamp set (146644) and the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper (146289)?

And these next two cards are made using the Dandelion Wishes stamp set (146744/146747).

Or how about this one using the Hanging Garden stamp set (146236/146239) and color blocking?

And the final card today is one that uses the Enjoy Live stamp set (148190)?

Can you pick just one favorite? LOL! why not leave me a comment and let me know?

OnStage Team Goodies

And now a little more about OnStage Live in Orlando – I love making these little name tags for my team for event event, after all when there are over 6,000 of the same bag roaming around you want to make sure you can find it, right? And so here is what I came up with for this events bag tag.

Each tag had 3 special charms to commemorate the event plus a special charm that my fellow team member Sue made for the end of each.

She created such a lovely dragonfly charm for me with just wire, beads and pliers. She made it look sooo easy that I can’t wait to give it a try myself when I get a chance. Although something tells me it won’t be quite as easy as she made it look! But then that is the great part about being part of a team, we all have different strengths that we share with each other!

They really looked nice on our bags I think.

I also tried my hand at some special organizers for everyone that a fellow leader shared with me.

I love the way they turned out and the little post it holders with flags for marking our new catties!

And what can I say I was having way too much fun playing in my classroom – so everyone received a little OnStage Live Survival Kit too.

Filled with everything you might need for our 3 day event. I found this cute little list and adjusted it to my needs.

What can I say, I appreciate and value my team and the richness they bring to my life! They are truly a blessing.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some more wonderful swaps and some of the display boards from OnStage too!

Leadership Survival Kit

Part of the fun of going to a Stampin’ Up! event is the fellowship with your friends and fellow demonstrators. Who’s kidding that’s a big part of it! And I love creating up a little gift for my roomie.

Here is what I came up with….. or at least the gift bag!

Leadership 2015 Survival  gift bag

I call it my Leadership Survival Kit – you know how when you travel, it’s always the little things that you forget or are a blessing to have on hand. Want to know what is inside?

First a name tag for our bag. With 1,500 of the same Stampin’ Up! Leadership bag at the Orlando Convention Center it is always good to be able to tell which one is yours!!!

Leadership 2015 name tags

I used this stamp set Feel Goods (131916/130538) since I thought the sentiment was perfect for this occasion. It’s my roomie’s first time qualifying for  Manager’s Reception – which is a big deal since Stampin’ Up! is taking over the Disney’s Hollywood Studios for the evening. What fun, right?

Leadership 2015 Survival  kit - wet wipes

A little package of mini wet wipes. I found them at Target a while back and thought they’d be great for inky fingers – or anything else we get into!

And a little pack of Kleenex for her new Leadership bag –

A little note pad –

Don’t you love the button? It’s part of the Artisan Embellishment Kit (137909) found on page 27 of the Occasions Catalog. The photo doesn’t show just how beautiful it is!

And of course you need a pen and post it notes – I couldn’t resist adding this little binder clip for keeping the paperwork we get together.

Leadership 2015 Survival kit tic tacs and lip gloss

Never hurts to have a package of tic tacs and chap stick on hand. The Convention Center air gets pretty dry. And of course, chocolate – just because she might need a bit of energy.  Kathleen and I tend to be night owls! LOL

Here is the set

Leadership 2015 Survival  kit

Of course I’m sure you recognized the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper (137779) that I’ve used for the little purse and other projects. Isn’t it great that the one side is a neutral all occasions pattern?

And since I was having so much fun making this Survival Kit – I made this little note pad for my self too. I love the soft colors in the Sale-a-bration Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper – I love that you can earn the coordinating ribbon and button pack too.  I’ve used a bit of the ribbon here along with the Hello Life photopolymer stamp set (137136).

Leadership 2015 note pad and pen

Can you tell I embossed the sentiment using our Calypso Coral Embossing Powder (133752)? And isn’t the Pompom Trim (137898) fun? I’ll be taking notes in style LOL!

Leadership Survival Kit

Well Leadership is just one more day away and I’m here in Houston ready to go. I flew in yesterday and spent the day with my sister and husband before heading out the door early this morning. Today starts the festivities and yippie today is a full day of Shoebox Swaps and Stamping!

I’m so excited to be at Leadership this year and the fact that I made it out of Atlanta without any weather problems. (It was a nippy 9 degrees out with a pretty hefty wind, but it could have been much worse.) I spoke to quite of few delayed flyers from this past weekend’s weather.

Well today’s project is one that I made for my roomie, Kathleen. I wanted to make something special from my friend and came up with this little survival kit for her using the Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper from the NEW Occasions Catalog. I just love the bold patterns and colors you find in this package of paper.

Leadership Survival Kit (1)

My little survival kit includes some of the essentials I thought anyone would need, notice the chocolate, which of course is definitely essential to any event!

Here are some of the items that I included. First a notepad and pen for jotting down great tips and project ideas.
