Gifts from OnStage Charlotte

Today I’m sharing with you three adorable treats I received from friends and fellow demonstrators last weekend at Stampin’ Up!’s event called OnStage. There were multiple locations around the world, and we attended the one in Charlotte, NC. I didn’t participate in any swaps this time, but these three ladies brought gifts for everyone on the team. I’m thrilled to get to share these with you today! (A couple of them got a little squished on the way home, so they may not look quite as good here as they did when I got them.)

This one was made by Jackie Beers. It contained a small Hershey bar. It’s based on one made by Julie DiMatteo, and I’ve included the link to her instructions below.gifts from Charlotte OnStage made by Jackie Beers, Julie Dimatteo, and Sandra Cornejo #stampinup

This adorable little thing holds a peppermint pattie, and was made by the adorable Paper Pixie herself, Julie DiMatteo. I’ve included the link to her instructions below.gifts from Charlotte OnStage made by Jackie Beers, Julie Dimatteo, and Sandra Cornejo #stampinup

Wow, this one, made by Sandra Cornejo, is amazing! It has four little sections inside to hold small treats – this one came with Hershey’s Kisses. I haven’t found the instructions to this one yet, but I’ll keep looking.gifts from Charlotte OnStage made by Jackie Beers, Julie Dimatteo, and Sandra Cornejo #stampinup gifts from Charlotte OnStage made by Jackie Beers, Julie Dimatteo, and Sandra Cornejo #stampinup gifts from Charlotte OnStage made by Jackie Beers, Julie Dimatteo, and Sandra Cornejo #stampinup

Here are the instructions to Jackie’s box. She modified it a bit to close by tucking in the flap, instead of using a magnet closure. I believe she said she had to trim a little bit off the flap so it wasn’t quite so long.

Here are instructions to Julie’s little treat holder. She made a lot of these for OnStage!

OnStage Orlando and some Sneak Peeks

Last week I was in Orlando, Florida, USA with about 6000 other Demonstrators for Stampin’ Up!’s 30th Anniversary Celebration. We received the 2019 Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration Brochure (you’re gonna love them!) We also received some of the new products and got to do some great Make & Take projects. Today I’m sharing some sneak peeks with you.

Here are the new catalogs:

I can only show you the covers right now. They go live January 3, 2019.

Here are some photos from OnStage:

The lighting is not great in many of the photos I took at OnStage, but it was the best I could do.

The Candy Hearts team has a new mascot. She had her photo taken with lots of people at OnStage. Here she is with Sara Douglass, CEO of Stampin’ Up!

These are the Candy Hearts who attended OnStage with me: l-r, Linda Krueger, Sandra Wilson, Judy Newsome, Susan Ballantine, and Missy Wiedeman.

We were all given a cute tool bag!

Bunny was so tired she fell asleep in her chair.

She slept well every night. 

Brian King and I always have to get our signature selfies. One at my 5’2″ level…

…and one at his 6′ 5″ level.

Bunny got into the new Stampin’ Up! tote bag for a photo.

It has lost of sections and pockets.

 

Here are some of the great new products:

 

Here’s the beautiful Snowflake Showcase!

It’s available only in November, so get yours before it’s gone!

 

The Happiness Surrounds stamp set can be used all year long!

And the Snow is Glistening stamp set can be used every winter. 

 

You get 20 dies in the Snowfall Thinlits set! 20!!! And they go with both stamp sets, so they can be used all year long.

Look at these adorable Snowflake Trinkets embellishments! They’re flat so they’re great for cards. I even made a pair of earrings!

BOGO Yard Sale & Open House

Open House & BOGO Sale #stampcandy

If you’ll be in the Atlanta area Saturday, June 2, 2018, you must stop by for my BOGO Yard Sale and Open House. The door opens at noon. You can drop in anytime between noon and 4pm. Of course, the closer to noon you arrive, the better your chances of getting all the BOGO sale goodies you want!

It’s free to attend, but please RSVP here so I’ll have enough of everything prepared.

VERY IMPORTANT: Park along the street (Woodcliff) behind our building. DO NOT part next to any of the units in the complex, or you will be towed and I will be fined. Thanks!

BOGO Yard Sale:

Why am I calling it a BOGO Yard Sale? Because you pay yard sale prices, plus you still get the Buy One Get One deal!

Usually at a BOGO Sale of this type, the BOGO Sale items are marked full retail price, then whatever you spend gets applied to an order from the catalog. This time I’m doing it a little differently.

I’m reclaiming my room upstairs, so I must make space. I have a LOT of great craft supplies that must go. So I’ve marked them down drastically – most items are at least 50% off, many even more than that. So you’ll save a ton of money on the yard sale items PLUS whatever you spend still gets applied to an order from the brand new 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog! 

 

  • shop my craft yard sale
  • whatever you spend gets applied to an order of new items from the new catalog
  • you only pay shipping and tax on the new items
  • lots of retired Stampin’ Up! products, even the ones I’ve been holding onto because I love them so much!
  • other brands are included in the BOGO Yard Sale including Martha Stewart, Tim Holtz, Anna Griffin, Sizzix, Cuttlebug, Darice, McGill, Creative Memories, and many more!
  • have your new catalog order ready to save time ordering
  • If you’ve ordered from me in the past year, I will send you a catalog in May. If not, you can get your catalog at the event. I’ll have the pdf version of the full catalog posted HERE on June 1.

A sea of stamps, still to be marked down to 50% or more offBOGO Yard Sale prep #stampcandy

Open House:

  • free Make & Take using new products
  • see the new products, and lots of project ideas for inspiration
  • get your free new catalog
  • order from the brand new catalog

Here’s what we made:

I borrowed an extra stamp set, so there are more stamps in this photo than you actually need. 

We used two stamp sets for this card. The Painted Harvest stamp set (which will be available in a Bundle with the new Leaf Punch) has some lovely sentiments, but I just adore the font used in the Count My Blessings stamp set. 

If you’ve wanted to try a multi-step stamp set but were afraid to, the Painted Harvest stamp set is the perfect one to try first. The flower layers don’t have to be lined up exactly, so it’s good practice for the ones that do.

 

2017 Holiday Catalog Launch Party, Stampin' Up!, Make & Take

 

Here’s what we did:

Stamped with the Painted Harvest stamp set:

  • first flower layer in Crushed Curry onto the front of the card base
  • second flower layer in Cajun Craze
  • flower center in Chocolate Chip

Stamped with the Count My Blessing stamp set:

  • sentiment in Chocolate Chip

Assembled the card:

  • used a Bone Folder to burnish the score line in the Note Card
  • put the card in the envelope

That’s it! Using the pre-cut and pre-scored Note Cards makes this card super easy!

 

Here are today’s colors:

Sign up for Stamp Camp and Make an Outhouse

I do have a project to share with you today, a cute little outhouse (yep, that’s what I said) but first I want to tell you about my upcoming Stamp Camp. I’m very excited about it. You’ll have 8 hours with no kids, no pets, no job, no worries – just stamping and shopping with friends!

Stamp Camp

Saturday, June 3, 2017, 9am-5pm

Candy’s Stampin’ Studio in Atlanta, GA

Register here by May 20. Prepayment is necessary to make sure I have enough of everything on hand. Space is limited so register soon. Also, the earlier you register, the more prize drawing tickets you will receive at the door!

Click here for all the details.

And now, todays project. I made a bunch of products for the OnStage display board using the new Wood Textures Suite. When I saw the crescent moon shaped die, I knew I had to make an outhouse. I mean, isn’t that the first thing that came to your mind? No? Just me? Well anyway, check it out. I thinks it’s cute as can be.

Here’s what I made:

Check out this adorable outhouse made with Wood Textures DSP and Home Sweet Home Thinlits by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

 

Die cut using the Home Sweet Home Thinlits:

  • 2 pieces of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP) with the house die
  • 1 piece of scrap card stock (CS) with the house die

Die cut using the Wood Crate Framelits:

  • moon out of one DSP door

Created a template for the inside:

  • cut the door off of the CS piece, then cut off the top half of the door
  • traced around the bottom part of the door on another piece of scrap CS
  • measured and used a ruler to draw the rest of the template: sides, top, and bottom
  • cut another piece of the DSP with my Paper Snips, using the template
  • cut the hole for the “seat” with the 3/4″ Circle Punch

This is the template for the inner part of the outhouse - Wood Textures DSP, Wood Crate Framelits, Home Sweet Home Thinlits, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Made the grass for around the outhouse:

  • cut pieces of Old Olive CS to fit around the bottom of the house
  • used Paper Snips to cut cut cut all the grass blades, being sure not to cut all the way through to the other edge
  • crumpled the blades with my fingers

Made the toilet paper:

  • I used a scrap of Whisper White CS (approximately 1/2″ x 8″)
  • used a Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write Marker to draw tiny “perforations” along about 1-1/2″ or so of one end
  • put a tiny bead of glue down the side without perforations, leaving about 3/4″ at the end without glue
  • roll up with your fingers (you might find it helpful to wrap it around a wooden skewer to get it started) leaving the “perforated” end free

Assembled the outhouse:

  • two DSP die cuts glued together to make the house, leaving open the side that has the moon
  • insert folded into shape and glued inside the house
  • toilet paper roll glued to the seat
  • grass pieces glued to the sides of the house
