OnStage Display Stampers Projects Day #5!

Hello again and welcome to my last day of projects for the Hartford Connecticut OnStage event. If you missed any of my projects from the past four posts, you can view them all together here: DISPLAY STAMPER PROJECTS.

I have three coordinating projects for you today. A card, a coordinating envelope and a box using the Window Box Thinlits Dies. The three new products you will see today are:

  • Share What You Love Specialty Designer Paper
  • Love What You Do Stamp Set
  • Colored Doilies

I added a layer of Vellum Cardstock over the designer paper to make it a little more subtle. I also added some die-cuts from the Flourish Thinlits Dies (which are carrying over to the new Annual Catalog) and then hand-cut some of the flowers from the designer paper to make my beautiful cluster:

I can't stress enough, how pretty this pack of designer paper is. And it's a large package too. 24 sheets of 12 x 12. The next photo shows you a close-up of my layers:

I used all of the same supplies and layers for my box:

And again, I hand-cut lots of flowers from the designer paper:

And the box was created using the Window Box Thinlits Dies (which is also carrying over to the new Annual Catalog). The Color Doilies glued over a piece of Vellum Cardstock and the designer paper, makes a great backdrop for all of my other pieces:

I hope you enjoyed all five days of my projects. This is what my display board looked like at OnStage in Hartford Connecticut:

Now I'll show you photo's of our event. This was the sign that greeted us and showed us what direction to go in to find the ballroom: 

Table decor with beautiful butterfly die-cuts....you know how I feel about butterflies right? And yes, this will be a new die in the new catalog. I need it! We even got to take some of these home with us:

In the center of our table sat this great, big, plastic container full of new products for us to use with our Make-n-Take projects. We were not allowed to peek until told to do so:

Our agenda:

Our host was Spencer Willis from our Home Office. He was a riot:

The reveal of our new Annual Catalog. We also got one into our hands right after this was shown. So yes, I have a new Annual Catalog in hand! Do you want one soon?

My demo friends Suzanne Travis and Carol Walker. Carol won one of the very first Prize Patrols and she was hiding the stamp set as we were not allowed to show it yet! 

I am an Advisor with the Facebook group Paper Pumpkin Fan Club and this is our advisor group. The page is hosted by Rachel Tessman and Jason Loucks is also one of the advisors. It was neat that we were all at the same venue to be able to snap a photo together:

Stampin' Up! is celebrating our 30th year so that's me holding up the signs:

This group of girls is all related somehow on our team of demonstrators. We are either Uplines, Downlines or Sidelines to each other!

Myself, Andrea Withers and my demo friend Linda Callaghan.

Andrea works for Stampin' Up! as the Curriculum Manager. She is the one that sent me all of those new goodies to stamp my display projects with.

Linda and I. We have a neat story. Linda is from New York and we joined Stampin' Up! at almost exactly the same time. We hooked up over 9 years ago online somehow and have been social media buddies ever since. We finally got to meet for more then a few mintues at a time and sat together at the event. Hi Linda!

All of the new goodies, catalog and tote I received at the event:

A thank you card from the staff of the Connecticut OnStage, thanking me for my display projects.......awwww! What an honor this was for me!

What's in the pretty box? Keep scrollling.....

Still don't know what's in the box, keep scrolling.......

Ahhh....that's what was in the box. An adorable light box!

Here it is in the dark:

The light box came with letters, numbers and symbols so you can slide whatever you want to display. How nice is that? Thanks for visiting today. I hope you liked all 5 days of my displays!
