On Stage 2016

Hi Stampers!  This past weekend I attended the Stampin' Up! On Stage event in beautiful Vancouver, BC. It was the best weekend!  Some time with friends, meeting new friends, celebrating successes, seeing the upcoming Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalgoues and getting inspired. Let me share some of the hilights!

We flew in a day early so we could play tourist for a day and just spend time exploring and relaxing.  Our day started with a huge breakfast with friends and then we headed to Granville Island to explore.

We had loads of fun and saw some super fun little shops. That night was Center Stage, a special dinner and training session for Silver Elite and above demonstrators. I had a great time visiting with friends, I learned a LOT and we got a fab bag that I absolutely LOVE!!!

Bright and early the next morning, the main event started. It was a very full day of all things Stampin' Up! with stamping, swapping, recognition and celebration, display boards and prizes.

Hello Lovely Inspiration Board

Hi Stampers!  A while back I hosted a "Stampin' Sleepover" with my downline. It was a great weekend of stamping and inspiration. We had a lot of laughs and a lot of fun! Everyone who came got the Hello Lovely Project Life Card Collection and Accessory Pack. We used those products in a few different ways, but the one that I loved the most was an Inspiration Board!

Hello Lovely Inspiration Board

We used the Baker's Racks from a kit from last year's catalogue and then went to town with the Hello Lovely card collection, accessory pack and a few coordinating supplies like cardstock and ink! I loved how everyone's was different!  Some people brought pictures to put on theirs, others brought other things that inspire them.  It was a great activity!

Mine is hanging in my office right by my work desk and reminds me all the time why I love what I do and why I keep doing it! It hangs in kind of in a shadowy spot beside my stamp shelf, so the pictures aren't the greatest, but I want to show you some of my favourite parts of mine.

There's some super cute 2x2 cards in the Accessory Pack and I used them to make a little banner. I alternated them with cardstock squares that I embossed with the Brick Wall embossing folder.  They're strung on a piece of Basic Black Baker's Twine. You can also see in the bottom, right corner how I layered some cards together. The possibilities really are endless with these cards and accessories!

Hello Lovely Inspiration Board fav card

This one is my favourite card! I stamped the Stampin' Up! Statement of the Heart on it and then did a little embellishing. This card gets to be right in the middle of my board!

Today I showed you a fun way to use this particular card collection that isn't really memory keeping, but I do want to say that this particular set is AMAZING for use in your Project Life albums too. The designs are perfect neutral designs that you can use for pretty much any occasion!

This week there's a bunch of Project Card Collections and Accessory Packs on special! If you're a Project Life pro this is a good time to stock up on some cards. If you've been on the fence about starting Project Life, this week is a great week to get started!  Let's chat and get you all set up!

Weather Together & Back to School

Hi Stampers! It feels like forever since I last posted. The craziness of back to school had this mama feeling pretty exhausted...and broke (I think September should be called "Chequetember" due to the amount of cheques I've written and school stuff I've paid for!). Even with all this going on, I love this time of year!  I love the routine that the school year brings and I love watching the season change!

My 3 handsome dudes are in 3 different schools this year. It's been a change for all of us with different schedules and for them to get used to not having a brother at school!  With all the craziness, we're off to a great start!  All three of them seem to be happy and enjoying being back at school.

Back to school 2016

Let's get on with some stamping, shall we! I have a friend going through a really rough time right now and when I went to see her a couple weeks ago I knew I needed to bring along a little something to cheer her up a bit.  Que the Weather Together set!  It's perfect for occasions like these!
