OnStage 2017 – Post 3

While at the OnStage event in Savannah I was recognized for my 10 Years as a Stampin’Up! Demonstrator. There were a few demonstrators present in Savannah and they had us march on stage to state our names and where we were from. It was touching to have Stampin’Up! recognize us for our continued relationship with them!

A bit blurry but a great feeling!

Celebrity sighting in Savannah, my friends and I stopped at a café in the Market Square for a bit to eat and we spotted Hugh Hefner in all his glory!

He was stopped for autographs and photos. The most famous 91 year-old around!

Yes, he’s wearing a smoking jacket, I guess he never leaves home without it.

Napkins that Sparkle & Shine

You will never look at napkins the same way after learning how to use them for card making. In my recent Technique Class I showed my awesome stampers two Napkin Techniques. I’m going to share one of those techniques in my blog today, I call it the Napkin Glitter Technique!

I picked up a pack of Easter napkins at a local store for a couple of dollars and made these beautiful cards, click and zoom in so that you can see the sparkle!

This technique is not difficult but there is a process in order to get it right. Take a look at the video below and see how it’s done.

Videos Are Coming!

It’s been quite a few months since my last video and I’m back! Well, almost back…I’m recording a video today and will edit and post soon. I plan to record one at least every two weeks. Hold me to it my faithful stampers. If I start to slack on posting, the first one to mention it on a comment will receive a gift me. You can help to keep me on track.

 

10 Years of Joy!

I just received this letter in the mail and it’s hard to believe that 10 years have flown by so fast. I can’t wait to add the pin to my lanyard and display it at the upcoming Stampin’Up! OnStage event in Savannah.

I became a Stampin’Up! demonstrator because I was attracted to the discounts and 10 years later it’s been an adventure! I immediately started thinking on how Stampin’Up! has impacted my life during these past 10 years and here’s my list…

  1. Lifelong friendships: I’ve met so many new friends that have enriched my life. A few of us have formed such strong bonds that it’s hard to imagine not ever meeting them.
  2. Creative outlet: I have occasionally considered myself a creative person or wannbe creative person. It wasn’t until I started making cards with Stampin’Up! products that I unleashed my creative side!
  3. Self-confidence: I was never a shy person to begin with, but with Stampin’Up!, I’ve had the self-confidence to share my thoughts and creativity.
  4. Leadership: I’ve learned with Stampin’Up! that I could motivate and inspire people to engage with their vision and unleash their own creative side. We all have one and it is always a pleasure to help others find their’s.
  5. Fun and Joy: It’s so much fun to create something for someone and see the look on their face when they realize it was made especially for them. Stamping and creating has many rewards and I’m happy and blessed that I found Stampin’Up! to help me find new friends, a creative outlet, a sense of accomplishment and much more.

I’m looking forward to many more years as a Stampin’Up! demonstrator and can’t wait to meet all the new friends I will make along the way!
