Click here for the Retirement List! Unfortunately, quite a lot of it is already gone. So sorry for those of you who did not order the retiring In Color Ink Refills … I know for sure that those are already sold out. It’s been a kind of crazy day trying to help my customers with their orders. If you need help or have questions, you are welcome to get in touch with me by email.
And now, onto some fun things!!! This past week, some of my downline and I attended OnStage Local in Minneapolis. This event was put on by Stampin’ Up! and it was just wonderful!! Here are some pictures. I hope you enjoy!!
The night before OnStage Love, Stampin’ Up! held an event called CenterStage for Silver Elite Leaders and Above. We were given some special perks along with some leadership training which was then followed up with a delicious meal. Of course THAT was then followed up with fabulous cheesecake!! I am pictured with Mary Kiley, a Silver Elite Leader in my Stamping to Share group.
Bright and early the next morning found us fueling up as we waited for the doors to open at OnStage Local, Minneapolis, MN! Thank You, Dunn Brothers, for being there when we needed you!
Shelly was an early winner when prizes were given out!
Stacey, myself and Angie were in one of the last rounds of Prize Patrol. But, the awesome thing about a Stampin’ Up! event is that EVERYONE goes home with prizes and gifts. Generously so!! Thank you, so much Stampin’ Up! for spoiling us again! We love you!!
We had such a big group of people attending from Stamping to Share that we decided to do table pictures after I passed out downline gifts as a thank you for attending. Here we have Mary B, Irene, myself, Pam and Sharon.
At this table we had from back to front, Karen M, myself, Mary K, and Tammy N. In front we have Susan and Mary C.
At this table we had Josie, Dawn, myself, Judy and Mary S.
And finally, our last table included Shelly, Stacey, myself, Joyce, Angie and Karen L. We all had such a great time together. Truly, it was a blessing to spend time with these warm hearted, creative souls. God truly blessed our paths with wonderful friends as a result of joining Stampin’ Up!
The cards above and below were photos taken of a display board that showed some cards made with a new kit coming out in the new catalog. I LOVE the All-Inclusive Kits and I was really excited to see that this kit will also give you the option to get refills!! Brilliant!! Thank you, Stampin’ Up!
Here is another card from one of the display boards. I thought you might be impressed with this one as the framelits that are a part of this bundle will not only cut out the stamped images, but will also cut out images from the coordinating DSP as shown above!! How’s that for EASY and ELEGANT?! I was jumping up and down for joy!! I love that!! (Can you tell I do not care to “fussy cut?” lol!)
Later, after OnStage came to an end, we joined up with any local demonstrators who wanted to join us but did not get into OnStage since it sold out so quickly. We had a lovely time together and as you can imagine, we couldn’t stop talking about the new catalog!!
Here are all the goodies I had at the end of the day, all on display on the bed at the hotel we stayed at. It was truly a wonderful time and I feel beyond blessed to have gotten to share it with my “Stampin’ Up! Family.”
This is the packaging for the downline gift I handed out after lunch at OnStage. Kim Lundstrom and I designed the bags which held a swap card featuring the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits and a beautifully engraved Stamping to Share Bone Folder. Fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, Tamra Davis, did all the engraving on these and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the way they turned out. Thank you, Tamra!

I plan to take the rest of the week off from Stampin’ Up! (with the exception of working with my customers who wish to place orders and finishing up the orders for Sunshine Club). My whole family will be getting together for Easter and it’s good to take some time off every once in a while to be relaxed and enjoy time with the kids. I don’t get to see them very often anymore so I relish those times when we can all be together again. So, I will take this opportunity right now to wish you and yours a very blessed and joyful Easter. Oh, Holy Week, Truly, a time of reflection and gratefulness.
