We are well into OnStage 2018 – day 2! Yesterday was a very full day so having a little down time here mid day after our Make and Take session is great! Time for pictures of displays, checking in at work (yes, I really did) and looking at all the pictures of snow at home in Illinois. It’s pretty but wow, I hope it is all gone by Sunday!

The new items in the Occasions Catalog have been fun to work with. My list is long already! But the consistent theme for all the stamp presentations has been focusing on 3 levels of stampers – Beginning, Casual and Avid. We all have our different ability and interest in stamping. It isn’t just about ability, it can be time, desire to purchase and how we like our cards to look when we are done. Right? 

But remember that first time you put ink on paper and thought “I did that!”. It was so exciting! Or maybe casual is just enough time and product for a Birthday, sympathy or thinking of you card. Then there are Avid stampers – either they love complicated, layered, detailed cards and ALL the stuff to make it. OR just have to have all the stuff just because they love it! (Yep, that’s me!)

I love the categories and will try to keep them in mind as I plan classes (online or in person) and share card  ideas.

This is a nice card we made today during our Make and Take using a new stamp set, Bloom by Bloom. The Designer Series Paper, behind the stamped flower image, has a raised texture feel (super cute patterns) and the Night of Navy enamel dots are sweet!

 

There is a board for sharing our thoughts about Stampin’Up! or business ideas. I did not write this one but…

Just a giggle for today!
