3D Thursday and a FREE Project Sheet!

Good Morning and guess what? It's 3D Thursday already! I have another 3D Project and FREE Project Sheet from our 3D Thursday team. This week, my teammate Twila Davis created this Stamp Case Organizer. Isn't it the neatest project?

 And this is what the case looks like when open:

There's a calender, an envelope pocket, a pen and a notepad. This was be so perfect to give as a gift or to keep in your purse of glove compartment. Here are the details of the front:

And as promised, here's the FREE Project Sheet you can print so you can create a project just like this one!

OnStage Display Stampers Projects Day #5!

Hello again and welcome to my last day of projects for the Hartford Connecticut OnStage event. If you missed any of my projects from the past four posts, you can view them all together here: DISPLAY STAMPER PROJECTS.

I have three coordinating projects for you today. A card, a coordinating envelope and a box using the Window Box Thinlits Dies. The three new products you will see today are:

  • Share What You Love Specialty Designer Paper
  • Love What You Do Stamp Set
  • Colored Doilies

I added a layer of Vellum Cardstock over the designer paper to make it a little more subtle. I also added some die-cuts from the Flourish Thinlits Dies (which are carrying over to the new Annual Catalog) and then hand-cut some of the flowers from the designer paper to make my beautiful cluster:

I can't stress enough, how pretty this pack of designer paper is. And it's a large package too. 24 sheets of 12 x 12. The next photo shows you a close-up of my layers:

I used all of the same supplies and layers for my box:

And again, I hand-cut lots of flowers from the designer paper:

And the box was created using the Window Box Thinlits Dies (which is also carrying over to the new Annual Catalog). The Color Doilies glued over a piece of Vellum Cardstock and the designer paper, makes a great backdrop for all of my other pieces:

I hope you enjoyed all five days of my projects. This is what my display board looked like at OnStage in Hartford Connecticut:

Now I'll show you photo's of our event. This was the sign that greeted us and showed us what direction to go in to find the ballroom: 

Table decor with beautiful butterfly die-cuts....you know how I feel about butterflies right? And yes, this will be a new die in the new catalog. I need it! We even got to take some of these home with us:

In the center of our table sat this great, big, plastic container full of new products for us to use with our Make-n-Take projects. We were not allowed to peek until told to do so:

Our agenda:

Our host was Spencer Willis from our Home Office. He was a riot:

The reveal of our new Annual Catalog. We also got one into our hands right after this was shown. So yes, I have a new Annual Catalog in hand! Do you want one soon?

My demo friends Suzanne Travis and Carol Walker. Carol won one of the very first Prize Patrols and she was hiding the stamp set as we were not allowed to show it yet! 

I am an Advisor with the Facebook group Paper Pumpkin Fan Club and this is our advisor group. The page is hosted by Rachel Tessman and Jason Loucks is also one of the advisors. It was neat that we were all at the same venue to be able to snap a photo together:

Stampin' Up! is celebrating our 30th year so that's me holding up the signs:

This group of girls is all related somehow on our team of demonstrators. We are either Uplines, Downlines or Sidelines to each other!

Myself, Andrea Withers and my demo friend Linda Callaghan.

Andrea works for Stampin' Up! as the Curriculum Manager. She is the one that sent me all of those new goodies to stamp my display projects with.

Linda and I. We have a neat story. Linda is from New York and we joined Stampin' Up! at almost exactly the same time. We hooked up over 9 years ago online somehow and have been social media buddies ever since. We finally got to meet for more then a few mintues at a time and sat together at the event. Hi Linda!

All of the new goodies, catalog and tote I received at the event:

A thank you card from the staff of the Connecticut OnStage, thanking me for my display projects.......awwww! What an honor this was for me!

What's in the pretty box? Keep scrollling.....

Still don't know what's in the box, keep scrolling.......

Ahhh....that's what was in the box. An adorable light box!

Here it is in the dark:

The light box came with letters, numbers and symbols so you can slide whatever you want to display. How nice is that? Thanks for visiting today. I hope you liked all 5 days of my displays!

Alaska Achievers April Blog Hop!

Welcome everyone, to a blog hop hosted by Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who earned the Stampin' Up! Alaska Incentive Trip. In a few months, we will all be aboard the Explorer of the Seas Royal Caribean cruise line for a 7-night cruise. Dave and I can't wait.

The theme for our Blog Hop this month is OnStage. OnStage is an event that is held twice a year for all demonstrators and the locations differ each month. I was lucky to have been able to drive with my hubby to the Hartford Connecticut location a few weeks ago. What I am featuring today are projects that we all got to create while at the event. Packets were given to us for all of these Make-n-Takes:

All of the products you will see here today are all brand new to the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog which will go live on June 1st. If you are a demonstrator, we will be able to pre-order on May 2nd.  These are the new products on my first card:

  • Painted Glass Stamp Set
  • Graceful Glass 6" x 6" Designer Vellum
  • Black 1/8" Cord
  • Pineapple Punch Blends
  • Lovely Lipstick Blends
  • Lovely Lipstick Cardstock
We colored using the Stampin' Blends over the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum which is black-embossed. The embossing is raised so you can't color outside of the lines!

Card #2:

For all of you nature lovers, isn't this gorgeou? So many layers and so many products. This is what we used on this card:
  • Rooted In Nature Stamp Set
  • Nature's Roots Framelits Dies
  • Nature's Poem Designer Paper
  • Nature's Twine
  • Leaves Trinkets
The Leaves Trinkets.....WOW is all I can say!

Card #3: 

This card was quite simple but packs a punch with the beautiful colors in the designer paper and coordinating pearls. New products used:
  • Share What You Love Specialty Designer Paper
  • Love What You Do Stamp Set
  • Pearlized Doilies
  • Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Velvet Ribbon
  • Share What You Love Artisan Pearls
We used the 1/2" Circle Punch to cut the corners on the sentiment layer:

And my final card:

If you think this is designer paper.....wrong! There's a layer of this cool stuff called Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper on the very front! New product used on this card:
  • Delightfully Detailed Note Cards & Envelopes
  • Detailed With Love Stamp Set
  • Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper
  • Detailed Trio Punch
  • Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon

OnStage Display Stamper Projects Day #4!

Have you enjoyed all of my projects that I designed for OnStage Hartford Connecticut so far? Well I have two more days to show you!

One of the stipulations when I was selected as a display stamper, was that I had to create 15-20 projects and another was that I needed to include some 3D projects and a scrapbook page. My new granddaughter Kylee was born on March 10th and I thought it would be perfect to show her and Kaitlynn off in a scrapbook layout with Grammy:

I had some beautiful products to work with and of course two beautiful girls!  For this scrapbook page, the new products I used are:
  • Share What You Love Specialty Designer Paper and
  • Foliage Frame Framelits Dies
And I also added:
  • Large Letters Framelits Dies
  • Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies
  • Layering Ovals Framelits Dies
  • Layering Circles Framelits Dies

I used the same designer paper for my next three coordinating projects. I incorporated a Half Wide Stamp Case in the mix as a 3D project for this set of 3:

The card is a 3" x 3" card and I also covered the flap of my envelope with some of the coordinating designer paper. I traced the envelope flap and hand-cut:

The stamp set used on this set is the Peaceful Reflection stamp set. Another fun set to play with! If you look closely at my Marina Mist Cardstock layer, you'll also see a new embossing folder called the Subtle Embossing Folder. It reminds me of the textured cardstock we used to sell:

For my final projects for today, I again coordinated a card, an envelope, and this time a mini treat holder:

I love the look of the two designer papers that I cut in strips and alternated the patterns when I glued them down. Aren't the colors lovely together?

Here's the listing of new products on these projects:
  • Share What You Love Specialty Designer Paper
  • Playful Pennants Framelits Dies
  • Peaceful Reflection Stamp Set
  • Silver & Pool Party Bakers Twine

And finally, this is my cute treat holder that I created using the Envelope Punch Board and I coordinated all the layers I used to match the card:

Stay tuned for one more post showing you the remainder of my projects. June 1st is when our new Annual Catalog goes live and you'll be able to order these products!
