Lovely Stampin' UP! Swap Card Ideas, part 3

It seems that the Petal Palette stamp set / Petals & More framelits were super popular for demonstrator swap cards at the April 2018 Las Vegas OnStage event!!  At least 1/3 of the cards I received featured this bundle!  I love it and am so happy to have more ideas featuring this bundle!  You can save 10% on the bundle through 5/31/18, and after that, you 'll need to order it at full price as 2 separate items (stamp set and framelits).

My "Million Dollar" Stampin' Up! Set - Ribbon of Courage

 

I am so excited to be able to finally share this wonderful new stamp set with you!!  Today I am sharing the Ribbon of Courage set that I designed with designer Kathy Pitt when I visited Stampin' Up! in Dec. 2015 for my Million Dollar Achiever trip!! (see more about that trip HERE).  If you are a demonstrator, you have access to the catalog already and can find it on page 96 of the upcoming 2017-2018 Annual Catalog with the million dollar achiever symbol, and my name below the set.

 

Patty Bennett Ribbon of Courage Stampin' Up! stamp set - in honor of all cancer survivors - and for encouragement cards, fundraisers, and more! Available after 6/1/17.

 

This stamp set has a story, and I will be sharing it with you in more detail soon in a video.  I was honored to be asked to present the set and my samples at the Stampin' UP! San Diego OnStage event last weekend, but only had 8 minutes to share... and I truly wanted to share so much more with the audience, so I will redo my presentation with all the samples and share the extra backstory and more in my video.  Watch for it here soon on my blog!

For all of you expecting that I would have designed a flower set... the explanation of why it's not flowers will also be in my video. This set is dedicated to my mom and grandma who both fought the battle against breast cancer.  They are both angels in Heaven now, and I know they are smiling down on me and so happy and amazed at how my business has grown over the nearly 22 years I've been a demonstrator!

 

Patty Bennett Ribbon of Courage Stampin' Up! stamp set - in honor of all cancer survivors - and for encouragement cards, fundraisers, and more! Available after 6/1/17.

 

I wanted to share a few photos with you from our time at the Stampin' UP! OnStage event in San Diego! I hope you enjoy these!

Above:  my display board and the samples I presented during my demonstration. 

Below: me on stage during rehearsal .. I don't have any photos of me during the presentation.

If you would like to see more of these new stamp sets, I'd love to send you a new 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! catalog in May!  Please leave me a comment or click the contact me button in the left column if you do not have a demonstrator already and need a new catalog!

If you'd like to see this set and the entire new catalog early, Join My Team! You will have access to the entire catalog online immediately!

Below: THIS was an amazing experience.. at the end of the OnStage event, Stampin' Up! announced they were giving away the Ribbon of Courage stamp set to ALL ATTENDEES!!!!!  Oh my gosh.. everyone seemed SO excited!  Immediately a long line formed at our table and everyone asked me to sign their set!!  Never in a million years did I expect that.. it was thrilling and crazy all at the same time! I was honored, humbled and feel so blessed over the amazing reaction to my Ribbon of Courage set!!  So many demonstrators shared their cancer survivor stories with me that day.  I know this set will be a huge encouragement to so many people!!

And last but not least, I must share this special photo with you... My sister-in-law Tami (on the right) drove down to San Diego from Orange County just to see my presentation!  My brother was tied up with a tax appointment.. I missed him, but it was GREAT to have Tami there!   This photo of my upline, Sandy, with Tami and I is very special, because it was Tami who attended a Stampin' UP! party hosted by Sandy about 25 years ago, then mailed me the Stampin' Up! catalog and said, "you might be interested in this!"  :)   OH MY>>> that was the start of a 25 year relationship with Sandy and Stampin' Up!  I was a customer for about 3 years before joining as a demonstrator in 1995!!  Thank goodness Sandy had her contact info on the back of the catalog!!!

Hope you enjoyed that little (ok long) story with the sneak peek of the Ribbon of Courage set!!  I promise to share all the samples and a video very soon!!!

Stampin' Up! OnStage Gifts for the Luv 2 Stamp Group

 

The Stampin' Up! OnStage live event is coming up SOON!!  I'll be in San Diego in early April with many of my Luv 2 Stamp Group members where we will be seeing the new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Catalog... and GUESS WHAT!?

I will be sharing a stamping presentation showcasing the set I helped design during my million dollar achiever visit to Stampin' Up! back in 2015!   YES! It will be in the new catalog!! You all will get to see it SOON!!!  :)

EEK!!! how cool is that!?  I think it's pretty special! :)

 

But, on to my other fun news for today... do you remember I teased you a couple days ago about the gifts I sent out to my Luv 2 Stamp group OnStage attendees?  (this post).  Well, today I get to reveal what I made for them.. it's so fun and I think they all enjoyed getting a fun packet in person or in the mail!

I had already handed out many of them in person, but here are the ones I popped in the mail to my nation-wide team who are attending an OnStage event in San Diego, CA, in Minneapolis, MN, in Richmond, VA, in Savannah, GA, in Shreveport, LA and in Toronto Ontario, Canada!

 

Stampin' UP! OnStage Goodie Packets for my Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrators, April 2017

 

A couple days ago (here) I shared the cute custom Luv 2 Stamp Group T-shirts I was die cutting for these gifts.  I cut red and white "flags" with the Banner Triple Punch and the Sending Love Paper stack, then added Lace Doilies, die cut Red Glimmer Paper hearts and finally the cute Tshirts!!

Below: the "loot" I assembled into packets for each OnStage attendee!

Stampin' UP! OnStage Goodie Packets for my Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrators, April 2017

 

 We have over 40 of our team members attending one of the events around the country and nearly 20 of us will be together at the San Diego location.

Stampin' UP! OnStage Goodie Packets for my Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrators, April 2017

 

 The great zipper pouches and office supplies are all from Staples.  The lanyards are from customlanyard.net

Below: the sweet tag for each packet, so that others will know we are a part of the same team!

Cute Custom T-Shirt Builder and heart tags for the Stampin' UP! OnStage Goodie Packets for my Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrators, April 2017

Each packet contains a Luv 2 Stamp Group OnStage lanyard so that they can easily spot each other at the event. 

I encouraged each attendee to bring this packet and use the Snail and Dimensionals on their Make & Take projects. Use the Wish List, marker, highlighter and post it notes to flag and list their favorite new products, and of course to wear their lanyard!!

Advisory Board Reunion Breakfast - Leadership - Orlando

The current and past Stampin' Up! Advisory Board members were invited to a LOVELY breakfast, poolside, at the Rosen Plaza in Orlando last week...  yes.. it was kinda dark when we first got there... but the sun was coming up quickly and soon it was just lovely! We had wonderful fruits, omelettes, eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes, juice, coffee, and I'm sure more.. and we got a free set (can't show you yet.. but it's on pg 106).. and had a great time visiting with friends!  That was a LONG day... after that we were off to the Convention Center for a full first day of Leadership Conference, and that night was the Manager's Reception at Universal!

Managers Reception at Leadership - Orlando 2009

Stampin' Up! treated all of the Managers and above to an evening at Universal's Island of Adventure last week!!  The park was closed except for the Marvel Super Hero Island section which was open exclusively for us! We could ride the rides as much as we wanted to without any lines!  We met the super hero characters and ate gourmet food all night!  Wow.. what a night!

Check out how they had the street light posts decorated.. they go ALL OUT just to make us feel special!

They said, Crop, Stamp, Punch, Wow, and swap!! Too cool!  We sure felt SPECIAL!

Best Wishes & More samples from Regional Seminar

I was so excited to get the "Best Wishes & More" stamp set from Stampin' Up! at the Regional seminar on Saturday in Orlando.. I didn't own that set yet but it was on my wish list! They gave it to us free so that we'd have it to stamp our Make & Takes.  I was too busy talking to finish my M&T's.. but if I get them done I'll post them.
