OnStage 2017 is over!

Stampin’Up! OnStage Conference was held in Salt Lake City Utah. But I am sad to say OnStage 2017 is over and it is time to head home. I loved spending time learning from Stampin’Up! Home office team and other demonstrators in our sessions, celebrating the joy of demonstrators accomplishing goals at levels big and small. Just attending, celebrating and visiting with some of the 2100 attending demonstrators was fun!

I know you know what else was fun…seeing the new Occasions and Sale-a-Bration (SAB) Catalog, watching demonstrations of new product and receiving new products! I look forward to the new year and sharing them with you. I will be placing a pre-order and starting to play in December but we have so much time left to get ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas, so that will remain our focus for stamping for now! If you are a demonstrator on my team or fellow demonstrator that was unable to attend, I only have one word…WOW! Wait until Monday!

This will be short because I am writing the blog post on my phone at the hotel, preparing to leave in the a.m. I would like to post a couple of pictures. One of them is my first chance to “walk the stage” for my 5 year Stampin’Up! Anniversary. I miss blogging and sharing with you, but prepping for OnStage and some other personal events kept me busy. I will try to get back at it this week! I will also likely post a Facebook Live in the next couple of days of some of the amazing swaps I received. We may work on a couple of them at Monday’s Stamp Night.

This marked the beginning of the Stampin’Up! 30 year anniversary so it will be a great year ending with OnStage in Orlando next November. Local OnStage will be in Milwaukee (closest for me) in April, consider joining and attending with me! We’ll be seeing the new Annual Catalog at that event. I know it is bound to be exciting!

Stampin’Up! Mission/Statement of the Heart – To love what we do, share what we love as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments…in this we make a difference!

Sale-a-bration ending in a week!

Sale-a-bration ending in a week? How does the time go by so quickly?! We are in the final days of Sale-a-braton. Some items have sold out – the glitter paper and the adorable card tins – but Stampin’Up! has added new items for us to choose from.

So if you have been waiting, now is the time to order to be able to choose a free item (or more) with each $50 that you place.  Check out the Gallery, I posted some card ideas using the Make a Medallion stamp set. If you follow my Stampin’Up! business page on Facebook, I have posted a slide show of the two step process using Make a Medallion with the RIPL app.  (Ok, it was fun but I must admit I defaulted to that because all of my new technology got the best of me today and I gave up – I switched back to iPhone <SO HAPPY!!>, have a tripod for moving the phone camera around and a long stretchy arm thing for recording, but nothing was going right! So enjoy RIPL!)

The Occasions catalog will run until the end of May. In April the items that will be discontinued will be shared with all of us. If you wanted an item, especially the Easter items, I would order now. I hope to work on some Easter items this weekend, my stamp sets arrived this week!

I attend OnStage next weekend in Minneapolis and can’t wait to see the new Annual Catalog, the new In Colors (2015 – 2017 will be going away, so order your favorite colors in ink, ink refills and paper!). I don’t know where the year went and of course I didn’t get all the projects I wanted done, but we still have a couple of months!

Watercolor Pencils – going, going…

We received a News flash from Stampin’Up! today regarding the sales of the new Watercolor Pencils – this is important if you have been on the fence regarding the Watercolor Pencils!

Sales for the Watercolor Pencils have exceeded Stampin’Up!’s forecast and are continuing strong, resulting in a significant number of backorders. It will be some time before this item is back in stock.

141709: Watercolor Pencils

This product will remain available until Thursday, January 26 at 12:00 PM (MT); it will then be placed in not-orderable status. (After that time, demonstrators, like me, will have to watch inventory status like we did for the Stitched Framelits).

SO order them NOW, TODAY, ASAP, if you have been thinking about the Watercolor Pencils. If you watched my video the other night on my Facebook business page they are so versatile and I just love using them.
Order Today: 141709: Watercolor Pencils

Click on the Shop 24×7 link on this page and don’t forget to place an order of $50 or more to receive a free item from the Sale-a-bration catalog such as the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper. I’ll be sending a newsletter tonight with samples of different techniques using the Watercolor Pencils on the Inside the Lines DSP.

High Tide and Cools Treats – New Occasions Catalog

Have you created your wish list from the new catalog yet?

If you weren’t able to join me on the Virtual Party on Weds night launching the new Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration, I wanted to share a couple of card ideas I posted during the party.

I am anxious to see your samples and ideas, my Facebook page is a great place to share your ideas and see those of others. Please feel free to post and share there.

Remember CASE – copy and share everything! Even top demonstrators admit they didn’t start stamping and amazing cards ideas just came to them right away. Most of us see an idea on other sites, blog hops, card challenges and them tweak to make it our own. So don’t be shy to post!

I have other items I haven’t created with yet and another order coming on Weds of next week, so I’ll be sharing more ideas as we continue to launch the new catalog. I have also started my list for the next order! There are so many great items to purchase and of course, Sale-a-bration (SAB) free items is a great time to place your orders. For every $50 from the annual or new Occasions catalog, you can select a free item from the SAB catalog.

On this last image of the High Tide stamp set,  I shared with the group during the Facebook virtual party that I used the new watercolor pencils to add some color and contrast to the sea. I love the new watercolor pencils and have been experimenting more and more with them. Maybe we should do a video?

If you don’t have a catalog, please let me know and I would love to send one to you. If you were forwarded this post, please sign up to receive future updates and newsletters. Of course if you are ready to shop, just click on the Shop 24×7 link above.

Many blessings, Deena
