ONSTAGE Orlando Goodies and More

I guess life happenings got in my way of posting to my Blog. 

A new goal for the New Stampin' Up! Year - Share more and not just on Facebook.

When searching the internet for some ideas, I went to look on My Create Ink - SU Color Lab - I knew I had checked months ago and NOTHING NEW, no new In Colors or the Color Renovation :( 
I decided to check it because one of the colors was an older InColor!   To My surprise, I found that they have updated their site, so I immediately went on the site and donated and now will go back and search the color combinations I was going to search.

Did you know they have support Stampin' Up!s, CTMH and Copic colors!!!   I have it saved on the sidebar of my blog!   I am a happy camper.   If you use that site, I would suggest maybe giving a donation every now and then, even a small one could help keep it up to date quicker!

OK - So .......I will share a few things in the days and weeks to come.   BUT THE BIGGIE -

I earned the Incentive Trip to Greece!!!   Can you tell I am excited!!!!??!!!

Now I need to learn how to put that widget on my sidebar that says, cruising with SU to Greece!

Here's some of the goodies I received at ONStage Orlando.   I can't believe it has been almost 2 weeks ago!

and here is a card from my class last week.  This is how I feel about the snow!!!   Don't like the cold associated with it and since living in Florida for over 3 years now, I like it even less!

Today on my Facebook Page - Stampin with Stampergirl, I posted some cards I mailed out today.   #makeacardsendacard    I took 3 from my stash and picked three people, randomly that I thought could use a smile in their mailbox and sent the cards to them.

Stay tuned, there will be more coming - frequently!

MY best tip for those pesky little dimensional tops!

You know those little dimensional tops!   You take them off to adhere an item to your project, and try to throw away, or just sit aside.    They get everywhere.....on the floor, tracked all over the house. and even outside, or in your car, you bed!

I came up with a simple solution and very inexpensive, plus you can give these little gems to your Stampin' Friends.

I sure wish I could keep up with blogging, but I am not good at trying to juggle all the technology!   I will share when I can and maybe I will get better at it.    Just not at this time.   This post for instance was drafted back over a month ago.   I needed to resize the photo.    Life just got in the way!



Share a smile, send a card!

This set is part of a Bundle on page 27 of the New Catalog.  The stamp set has 10 stamps and there are 7 dies that come in the thinlits.   I received the stamp set FREE at the OnStage convention in CT in April and the thinlits were one of the first things on my list to order when the new catalog came out....June 1st.    I was able to get those for FREE too with my rewards from my sales during Sale a Bration.   They will arrive tomorrow with my first order..

Here is one of the cards I made with the set, I did a Facebook Live video last week making the card and this morning mailed it out to one of the gals who made a comment during or after the video.   Check it out sometime.....on Facebook, search for:

Brusho Class cards - Class dates and a short video

 I held my Brusho class in MD and it was a HUGE success.   I have another scheduled 
next week for Florida, Friday, May 25th, 10am-12noon 

Here are the cards.    I wish I would have taken photos of everyone's finished cards. 
Maybe I will get a chance to get photos of most of them later this week and post them soon.

Can't make the one in FL next week  or missed the one in MD. Contact me to schedule a Brusho class.

Stamp classes coming...May 20th, 1p in MD and May 23rd, 10am in FL. Contact me to sign up for either.

A lot of people always ask? Why did you join Stampin' Up! or why have you stayed (14 yrs now). Watch this short video- Shelli, cofounder, says it all and much better than I could.

Hope you have time to get creative today!

MAke a card Send a card...Make 2

Whenever I get out supplies to make a card I always make two cards, well almost always. If I'm cutting the card stock in half  that will make two cardbases so I'll make two cards. For these cards below I used the swirly bird stamp set and the matching thinlits.  I just love this set, it is great for any occasion, young or old.  I made the two cards at the same time, along with my sister who made two cards too.  One was  a thinking of you, the other  Enjoy the simple things in life!  just because that's a great thing to enjoy the simple things in life.    I CASEd the card off of Pinterest using the bird from the Petal Pallette set since that was the only bird we had and the matching thinlits cutting him out was super easy.

SO   Make a card and Send a Card and make a difference in someone's life

Butterfly Basics and Butterflies thinlits

This stamp set makes such pretty Cards and using the Butterflies thinlits, a WOW for sure.   Sadlly this stamp set and the butterfly thinlit are retiring and the butterfly thinlit has sold out.....The butterfly thinlit has got to be the most used thinlit I own!   I haven't used it much in the last few months and pulled it out to make this card.   Of course I made more than one!

The new catalog comes out in June, and if you want a copy all you have to do is contact me.   Those of you who come to my classes in either Maryland or Florida will get one at

Perennial birthday kit

  This post was delayed..I had pneumonia again, so these next few posts are a few weeks late
The other day a friend of mine and I got together  to make the cards from the Perennial Birthday Kit.   We both have the stamps and the kits.  In just a few hours, we completed most of the cards.   I completed  11 cards and she completed all 16 of hers later that day.   I plan on finishing mine tonight.  This kit is an awesome kit to give to anyone as a gift, filled with the cards or keep and when you are creating a card for someone's birthday that is later in the have a place to put it.   I love the box, it is gorgeous and the dividers are great with places to write birthdays on each month.  The box is super cute and holds all of the cards and more.

Here are her cards, all finished....

Here are mine, I mixed up greetings and orientation of how I wanted them to look.

Hope you get creative today....
