OnStage Day 1 Highlights and Products (plus check out the NEW Catalog!)

The first day of OnStage is over.  It was a long, but FUN day!  For my post today, I will share some of the pictures from the event, as well as the goodies we’ve received so far!  (Including sneak peeks of the covers of the NEW 2019 Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration brochure!)

The picture above and the one below are pictures of the main stage.  There are literally over 6000 demonstrators here!   It’s quite the show, with flashing lights, loud music, and lots of cheering and dancing!

 

Wednesday, we checked into the convention center and registered.  At registration, we received this beautiful box:

 

Inside the box were the following items:

 

Today, we also received the NEW Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration brochure.  There are some AMAZING new products in here that I KNOW you are going to love!!!  While I can’t show you the inside of the catalog, I can at least show the covers:

 

We also received this gorgeous zippered tool case:

 

And I won this new stamp set called “Part of My Story”:

 

And here’s one of the projects we created using one of the NEW product suites from the Occasions Catalog:

 

I also just remembered that I got a super comfy hooded sweatshirt that I forgot to take pictures of!  I will try to remember to add it tomorrow’s post!  All of this so far, and this was just the first day.  We have two more days to go!  I can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings!  🙂

FYI:  IF you have EVER considered joining Stampin’ Up!, you are going to want to do it during Sale-a-Bration!  There is going to be a fantastic sign up special that you are GOING to want to take advantage of!  More details on THAT as we get closer!  And if you join, you too could attend OnStage events!  Just something to think about!

Thanks for visiting today!  Please check back tomorrow for Day 2’s highlights!

It’s a Merry Monday with the Seasonal Wreath Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder

Today’s card features the Seasonal Wreath Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder!  This folder is actually available in the Annual Catalog, and as been available since June 1st.  This is the first time I’ve had a chance to use it though! Here’s a peek at the folder:

When using this folder, the wreath really ends up being the centerpiece of your card!  The wreath itself measures approximately 3-5/8 in diameter, so it takes up a large amount of space on the card.  It is so elegant though, and makes really beautiful cards, even completely by itself!  For my card today, I dressed up the wreath a bit by applying the NEW Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint with a sponge dauber.  After it dried, I went over some of the smaller leaves in the wreath with my Dark Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Marker to add a bit of color as well!

 

I also used my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends marker to color some Whisper White 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon, as well as rhinestones.  I LOVE using my Stampin’ Blends to make matching embellishments for projects!  They work great on ribbon, rhinestones, pearls, and more! 

The sentiment I used is from the new Merry Christmas to all stamp set.  This set is so versatile for the holidays!  It includes 28 photopolymer stamps that can be mixed and matched to make many, many different greetings!  The Merry and Christmas are actually two different stamps that I placed next to each other on a clear block to make one sentiment.  There are also some script sentiments as well!  Take a look at the full set below:

This set will be available on September 5th when the Holiday Catalog goes live.  It can be purchased alone or as part of the Merry Christmas to All Bundle.  You can find these items on page 5 of the new catalog!

 

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Tranquil Tide card stock base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Gold Foil Sheet middle layer:  4 x 5-1/4 inches

Whisper White card stock top layer:  3-7/8 x 5-1/8 inches

 

I hope you like my card today!  Please let me know if you have any questions!  If you need a copy of the new Holiday Catalog, please let me know, and I will get one out to you right away!

Thanks for stopping by!

CASE the Catty Day 2 and Merry Mondays!

Welcome to Day 2 of my CASE the catty week!  Before I get to today’s card, I decided that, for at least the next couple of months, I will share Christmas cards only on Mondays.  Now that I got my first order of Holiday Catalog goodies, all I want to make is Christmas cards, but I also want to pace myself and not go overboard, as it’s still summer!  LOL!  So posting them only on Mondays will help keep that in check (hopefully)!  🙂

My card today is based on a sample on page 100 of the catalog:

Believe it or not, my card is based on the bottom card in this picture.  When I first started making it, I had a very different idea in my head of what I wanted the final card to look like.  As I continued to create it and made changes as I went along, it began to look less and less like the original sample!  Other than the plaid backgrounds, there’s not too much left in common between these cards, though I’m still very pleased with how my final card came out!

Most of the products used on this card are from the new Holiday Catalog!  The plaid background paper is from a new DSP called the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper.  The “Christmas” die cut and “Wishes” stamp are from a gorgeous new bundle called the Merry Christmas to All Bundle.  I also used a new trim called the 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim.  Other products include the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Twinkle Builder Punch, which I used to cut out the stars!

 

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Mossy Meadow card base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Cherry Cobbler middle layer:  4 x 5-1/4 inches

Plaid DSP layer:  3-3/4 x 5 inches

Very Vanilla stitched oval:  3-5/16 x 2-3/8 inches

Christmas die cut:  4-5/8 x 1-1/4 inches

Cherry Cobbler stars:  approximately 1/4 inch

 

 

All of the Holiday Catalog products shown on this project will be available beginning September 5th!  I have the new catalogs in hand and will be shipping them out to my customers by the end of this week.  If you would like a copy, and do not already have a demonstrator, please send me your name and address and I will put you on my list!

Thanks for stopping by!  Please check back tomorrow for Day 3’s project!

It’s HERE!!!

It’s finally here!  The new Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 Annual Catalog goes live for ordering TODAY!  Just a couple of things you need to know:

Ordering will not be open until NOON Mountain Time (that’s 2:00 pm for us East Coast folks!)  This is so that Stampin’ Up! can have time to switch over the ordering system from the old catalog to the new one.

Once ordering IS open, ANYTHING from the new catalog may be ordered EXCEPT any Stampin’ Blends Markers in NEW colors only, and the Big Day Planner Kit and Refill.  All of the previously released Stampin’ Blends colors will be available again beginning June 1st.  However, there are a bunch of new colors shown in the new catalog that will not be available in the Stampin’ Blends until sometime mid-June.  Stampin’ Up! is working to get these new colors into your hands ASAP, so please check back for updates, and as soon as I know anything, I will let you know!

You can now view a PDF of the new catalog right on your computer!  Click HERE to view/download, or click the image of the catalog on the righthand side of my blog!

Otherwise, happy shopping! Let me know if you have any questions or need anything!
