ONSTAGE EXCITEMENT!

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!

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!

FEBRUARY PAPER PUMPKIN PROJECTS

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…

img_2962

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!)

img_2963

Here is what the original kit looks like all assembled – love it enough that I’m going to order the refill kit!

img_2964

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!
