I was in Toronto this past weekend at Stampin’ Up!’s Onstage event where I was invited to be a presenter for Paper Pumpkin! I was so excited and SCARED and NERVOUS – but this is like a once in a lifetime opportunity, so I just had to say yes! Thank you to all my family and friends who showed their support that this is something I could do! Here is a picture of the event from the back – lots of people were in attendance!
Here is the monitor announcing me! VERY exciting – what an honor!
Here is me up on stage…
What a wonderful event and open to any Stampin’ Up! demonstrator to attend. It was a great time of learning of the new products – got to get the new EXCITING catalog – and see all sorts of demonstrations and ideas. Here are some other photographs..
Here is my wonderful upline, Missy Shipman and my sister demonstrator Debbi Hill – we we were treated like royalty at a special dinner on Friday night for Silver Elite and higher titled demonstrators!
Here is a pic of the rest of our team at this event on Friday – Ladies, it was a privilege to have shared this night with you!
Here are some photos of what was served on Saturday:
We had a GREAT time and I’ll share some more photos at next post – quite an experience…
OH AND I GOT TO WALK THE STAGE FOR BEING A DEMONSTRATOR FOR 10 YEARS! WOW!

I thought I would share with you my wall banner for 2017 for St. Patrick’s Day – just a wee bit late, but I hope you enjoy it! Every month now, my downline has a swap for a monthly wall banner and you can see my banner from last year by clicking the tab above for “Wall Banners”, but these are the squares that we swapped for this year…. here is the whole banner:
Here are the individual squares – this first one is from Becky:
This one is from Beth:

This one is from Debbi:
This one is from Nora:
This one is from me:
Aren’t they all stinkin’ cute? Here is the finished banner for this year, 2017:
Hi everyone! Here are our Paper Pumpkin projects from the February 2017 kit! This first one is combining two of the cards together to make a box:
I filled it with candy…
This one I found on pinterest to make it an Easter card using the large oval punch…
Here is another card using the Stitched Framelit dies and punching out some balloons (please don’t notice that I have the candles upside down – AUGH!!! – LOL!)
Here is what the original kit looks like all assembled – love it enough that I’m going to order the refill kit!
There is a place for money to be attached with washi tape or a gift card to be inserted – too cute!
Here are all our projects we made with February’s kit!
I thought I would share with you one of the projects we made from December’s Paper Pumpkin. This is a wall banner:
This was all using the December Paper Pumpkin Kit!
I will show you our next project tomorrow!
Here is what happened in October – September Paper Pumpkin kit, Christmas Stamp-A-Stack, October Wall Banner, and we ended with the October Paper Pumpkin kit – a busy month!
Here is what we did using the September Paper Pumpkin Kit – we used these test tubes…:
and made lighted Halloween bottles:
Then made an alternate card using the stamp set:
I’ll be posting the October Wall Banner next post!

I thought I would share this GREAT video from the home office on putting together an album for December to document the month – I think I am going to give this a try – it really looks like a lot of fun and something do-able for me – how about you? Let me know if you would like to give it a try and we can come up with a time after Thanksgiving but before December to put these together – together! I think it would be fun!
I thought I would share with you the September wall banner that I did. Every month I create a different wall banner, some my ideas and others ideas I have seen off Pinterest, so here is what I came up with:
Here are close-ups of each square:
(The jars below were a fabulous idea of Patty Bennett)
(so cute and cased from Pinterest from, Cecile Ortiz – love it!
So that completes my wall banner for this month!
I’ll be starting classes in January, going through the whole year to make one every month – they are a lot of fun!
