Event Spotlight: Catalogue Launch Party

 

Launch Party

Hi Friends!

The new 2017 – 2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue is all set to launch on June 1st, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to tell you all about my Catalogue Launch Party!

If you’re local to the Hamilton, ON area, then I invite you to join me for an evening of fun!

This is my first-ever launch party, and I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am! I have so many great things planned and I am beyond excited to show you all the new items Stampin’ Up! has to offer! If you haven’t seen any yet, CLICK HERE, to get a few sneak peek at the new Birthday Delivery Bundle. There are also a few new projects posted on my Instagram, so be sure to check it out and follow.

Anyway, back to the launch party! This drop-in style event will be filled with fun, laughter, and crafting. Here are just a few of things I have planned for you:

  • Each person will get a copy of the brand new catalogue (the best part)!
  • Each person will get a special gift (or two) from me because I am so thankful that you can attend.
  • Everyone will get to make one or two make-and-takes featuring new products.

There will also be door prizes, light refreshments, and more!

Plus, each person who places an order valued at $45 or more (before taxes and shipping) from the new catalogue at the launch party, will be entered to win a $30 shopping spree on me!

Doesn’t this sound fun! Be sure to RSVP by May 29th via the Facebook event page.

If you have any questions about the event, please leave a comment below or contact me directly.

Note that the event address will only be sent to those who have RSVP’d via the Facebook event page or to those who have RSVP’d with me directly.

I hope to see you there!

Friday Introductions

Friday Introductions

Have you heard of Friday Introductions? It’s an Instagram movement started by The Rising Tide Society as a way to get to know the maker, creator, entrepreneur…you get the hint. Well, I love this concept, so I thought why not borrow it and use it here on the blog so you could get to know me, and perhaps I can get to know you?!

So without further ado, let’s kick off the first of many Friday Introductions!

I’m Lisa. I am the girl behind the blog, and I am so proud to invite you to The Stampin’ Girl Blog. I’m also a small business owner; not just because I’m a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, but because I also own a small business called Sweet Paper Studios. With this business, I sell my handmade cards, custom prints, paper party decorations, and other paper goods. I also work full-time as an Education Coordinator at one of our local hospitals. So needless to say, I’m one busy woman!

When I’m not working or busy stampin’, I love spending time with my two boys (Eric and Andrew) and my husband Doug. Family is the most important thing in my life, and I just love creating lasting memories with the little things that come from our daily lives.

My favourite colour is blue, I can eat grilled cheese everyday, and I have a serious thing for cupcakes, especially chocolate! And I love to bake.

So now that you know a little about me, I’d love to learn more about you! So my question for you is (and I will include my answer below too):

Q: If you could sit on a bench in a beautiful woods, who would you like sitting next to you on the bench and why?

A: My Nana. She passed a few years ago of Cancer, but I would love to sit down with her just like we used to, with a tea in hand, and update her on everything in my life, as well as listen to how she has been and doing.

That was a little deep so don’t feel like to have to dig that far, but I’d love to hear your answers! So please introduce yourself and leave your answer in a comment below!

Until next time!

Unboxing the New 2017 – 2018 Annual Catalogue!

Hello friends!

Today I’m sharing a live unboxing video I did on Facebook yesterday, and showing you all the goodies I ordered from the NEW catalogue (that comes out on June 1st)! One of the perks about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is that we can almost always get our hands on new items before anyone else! Doesn’t that sound amazing? If you’ve ever though about becoming a demo, now is the perfect time to join my team!

Now, back to the unboxing. In case you missed it live, I’ve posted the video below. You are going to love everything you see – I promise!

Aren’t these items just beautiful?! I can’t wait to start playing with it all! If you have any questions about what you see, please let me know by leaving a comment below, or you can contact me directly.

Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Dies Design Idea

Bloomin' Heart 2

The Bloomin’ Hearts Thinlits Dies is probably one of my all-time favourite Stampin’ Up! Dies (and they will be in the new catalogue coming out on June 1st!). Not only is it beautiful, but it’s also so versatile! Having said that, there’s one card design idea that I wanted to share with you and I hope you love it just as much as I do.

I was asked to make this card for a friend of mine for her anniversary. As she was describing her relationship to me and the love she has for her Fiancé, one thing she told me really stood out,

He holds the key to my heart“.

So with this, a beautiful idea came to mind and I ended up designing a card that suit their relationship so perfectly. And she loved it!

Bloomin' Hearts 1

How cute is the key?! I actually found it in my ‘junk’ drawer (it’s really amazing what you can find in there!), gave it a good clean, and then put it to use! Note that there was two of the same keys, and to this day I have no idea what they are for, so I had no problem using it, hehe. The key itself is attached by using a piece of Bermuda Bay Bakers Twine.

You’ll notice that I used two Bloomin’ Heart cut-outs and just offset the colours for more of a ‘pop’. The background is embossed with the Falling Pedals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (which is on the Retiring List and on sale for an incredible 50% off right now!). You’ll also see that I used three of the hearts from the 2016-2018 In Color Enamel Shapes (which is also on the Retiring List and on sale for 50% off!).

I finished off the card with a lovely sentiment, which I printed from the computer, and then cut out the sentiment with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (another favourite of mine).

TIP: I used the second largest Oval Stitched Framelit, which measures 2-3/4″ x 1-5/16″. If you are using a custom printed sentiment, font sizes 18 through 22 fit best in this oval size depending how long your sentiment is.

I really love all of my Stampin’ Up stuff, so be sure to get your hands on the retiring items before they are gone for good! You can shop online in my Canadian Online Stampin’ Up! Shop. I truly appreciate being your Demonstrator.

Stampin’ Up! OnStage Local Recap – April 2017

 

OnStage Sign

I’m a little bit behind in recapping my first OnStage experience (it’s what happens when you’re dealing with a flooded basement), but never the less, I thought it was still worth while to share such an amazing experience with you all.

If you’re not familiar with OnStage, this is an exclusive event held by Stampin’ Up! for their Demonstrators. It’s a one day conference that literally happens all over the world! There is the main OnStage event, which just happened to be in Amsterdam this time (oh man, how I would loved to go there!), but then there is also OnStage Local, which is smaller events throughout various countries so that even more people can attend. Luckily, the event closest to me just happened to be in Toronto, which is nice and close to me.

thumb_IMG_1213_1024thumb_IMG_1134_1024Survival Kit
My New Catalogue Survival Kit from Jenn Tinline!

This event allows demonstrators to learn about new products (i.e. the new 2017 – 2018 catalogue!), do some small business training, and even get crafty!

Most importantly though, it was inspiring.

Inspiring in ways that I can’t quite get down on paper (or screen). There’s just something about being in a room full of like-minded, talented, and oh-so-inspiring women (and some men), that just warms your heart. You get to meet new people and create lasting friendships, see others amazing Stampin’ creations, and really connect with other Demonstrators on a more personal level that you rarely get the chance to do.

I was lucky in that the majority of our Stamp with Jenn Demonstrator Team was there too! It’s amazing to connect with everyone in person so we can all reach the same goal:

Stampin' Up Mission

I can’t begin to express how much I love being a Demonstrator and how much I love to share my projects with you all. I am so happy I decided to take the plunge to join Stampin’ Up! a year and a half ago, and OnStage really reiterated my feelings!

The new product coming out on June 1st is amazing (as you may have seen some of the projects I’ve already shared), and I was even fortunate enough to win three stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! at OnStage! Can you say Prize Patrol?!

One of the main highlights of OnStage was seeing the display boards, not only of new products themselves, but to actually see them in action by way of Demonstrator creations. I love how we are able to preorder and play with new items because it allows us to show you , our amazing customers, what is coming and how easy it is to create projects with just a few items.

The fun wasn’t over after OnStage was finished either, as the Stamp with Jenn Team went out for dinner, not just to chat and swoon over the new catalogue, but to celebrate what it means to be a Demonstrator.

Team Photo

To be part of a team. A community. A family.

I truly love what I do and being a Demonstrator has allowed me to share my passion with others. I can’t wait for the next OnStage! And next year, I’ll be attending the big 30th Anniversary of Stampin’ Up! in Orlando! Would you like to join me?

NEW Stampin’ Up! 2017 – 2018 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek – Birthday Delivery Bundle

Birthday Delivery Showcase - PROMO

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Stampin’ Girl blog! My apologies for not posting in a little while, as we’ve been dealing with a flooded basement! I’ve had to start using my dining room as my craft area, but I’m at least excited I can still craft!

Any who, are you excited to see a sneak peek of a new bundle available in the upcoming 2017 – 2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue?! I knew you would be!

How adorable is this set?! It comes from the new Birthday Delivery Suite, which includes the stamp set, designer series paper, and framelits! The amazing thing about this suite is that the framelits cut out not only the images in the stamp set, but also those in the designer paper! Can you say, MIND BLOWN?!

The other great thing about this set is that it’s actually a whole suite! You can include super cute matching ribbon, cardstock, and balloon honeycomb embellishments.

The theme this month is My Favourite Bundle. Honestly though, how can I pick just one?! There are so many I love, but I guess if I had to pick the one I am using the most right now, it would be the Oh So Succulent Bundle.

I just love how versatile this set is! You can really do so much with it, including having the ability to make a beautiful succulent garden (like the one below!). Details on this project are coming soon, so stay tuned! But here are a few things I’ve created with this bundle.
