And away we go! OnStage is in Charlotte this weekend and I'm more than excited. Since it's so close, many of my Stamping Bees are able to go. Many have not been able to attend before. It will be fun to see what they think of being in a room with 1200 other demonstrators. We're all very excited to see new products and especially the new InColors.
We'll get to Charlotte in time for lunch, and then I'm off to rehearsal for my presentation on Saturday. We're joining another team for dinner tomorrow night, and doing a combined team swap.
Saturday, will be an all day event with stamping, demonstrations, and of course, Prize Patrol! I'm most looking forward to seeing what our Product Purchase Premier products will be. As demonstrators who attend OnStage, we get the privilege of ordering specific new products before anyone else. I can't think of much better reason to go, can you?
I can't wait to show you all our new goodies! Stay tuned for a few sneak peaks this weekend!
Monday is the LAST day to register for April's Card Club. Email me to register.
Oh my goodness...has it been two years already? And now, it's time to say goodbye to these 5 amazing In Colors. It's like saying goodbye to old friends. As we wait to see what the NEW 2019-2021 In Colors will be, let's see which color was our favorite.
Speaking of Color...

Layers, layers everywhere. This card has so many layers it's hard to know where to begin. The Petal Palette stamp set is one of my all time favorites. And I don't even like birds! I think it's the way the layers work together without being fussy. You don't have to cut a lot of any one piece, either. As you e. And what are those circles in the background? Surprise! The Swirly Scribbles dies make a guess appearance here, too.
Powder Pink is retiring...in fact, ALL 2017-2019 InColors are retiring. When? On Monday, April 15th. If I were you, I'd stock up on all InColor inks, re-inkers, paper, ribbon, etc before Monday. Historically, all InColors sell out almost immediately. And once they're gone, they're gone.

What better way to celebrate Easter than with spring time daffodils and Gingham Gala paper? Ok, let's face it. NOTHING is better than Gingham Gala paper - period! And look, stamping on it is just as awesome! It's just so versatile and it makes me happy, happy, happy!
This week, I'm busy putting the finishing touches on my OnStage presentation. I've found out that I'm the last demo presenting, which means, I have ALL day to watch amazing presentations - and hope that mine is good enough! LOL I think I'll start practicing in front of the dogs tonight. They're pretty much a captive audience, but the don't provide much constructive criticism.

I love paper. Let me correct that. I love pretty paper! That's actually how I got involved with Stampin' Up! So, as I was shopping for some organizational supplies for my studio on Sunday, this lovely journal caught my eye and before I knew it, it had jumped right into my cart and followed me home.
Once home, I was inspired to craft a card based on my journal. Then, I had a brilliant idea...let's ALL craft a card based on my new journal. I'd love to see what YOU create based on the colors and pattern found in my journal. Simply post a photo of your creation below, or on my Facebook Group Page. I promise to spend the week trying this pattern, too.
And now for the contest...post a photo of your creation and one lucky winner will be chose to receive a free pack of Leaves Trinkets. You must post a photo on or before Sunday, April 14. One winner will be selected on Monday, 4/15.
