Stampin' Up! Display Stamper Post

Hi Crafty Friends!

Today I'm sharing a variety of projects. I'm posting them as part of my application to be a Display Stamper at the upcoming Stampin' Up! On Stage event. Attending the On Stage events are one of the percs of being a demonstrator (want to know more about that? Contact me for more info). 

On Stage is a gathering of demos with presentations from the home office as well as from other demonstrators. It's a time filled with inspiration and meeting with new and old stampin' friends. And I'm hoping to be part of the inspiration! Display Stampers receive a sampling of totally new product and are asked to create projects to share on display boards at the event. I was chosen a few years ago and it was very challenging but very fun. I'm hoping to get chose again. (Pick me Stampin' Up!)
So wish me luck and let me show you some things I've been working on.

I'm most excited about my Framed Art Sampler. We'll be making this one in class at the end of November so that we can display it all of December. Don't worry, I'll do a more detailed post about it soon. This is the first project I made with my new Holiday catalog products. I was very much inspired by the beautiful ideas in the catalog.

I love the magical Christmas feeling of this piece. Here's what it looks like framed up.

**Update** Want all the info on how to make the sampler? Click HERE to go to the blog post.

We have another Home Decor class coming up the beginning of September, our HOME frame. It's a follow up to the first class we did back in the spring. We're making more "0"s to go in our frame. 

It's such a fun project and I love changing out my "O" every month. Please note, this was not my original design. I learned it from another demo, but I've had such fun coming up with ideas for the "O"s. This class is on Sept 5, so get you RSVP in quick! If you missed the first class and need to make the whole project, that's no problem as that option is available too. 
Here's a closer look at the 'O"s.

This next pic shows how lovely they look in the frame. We'll also make a Valentine's one, I'm waiting on a stamp set to arrive so that I can design that one.

Now, let me show you a few cards.

We made this sweet card in my classes this past week. It features the Pop of Petals bundle (so cute!) and the Stitched Labels Framelits. 
My next two cards use new products from our soon to be shop-able Holiday Catalog. 
Need one? Just ask!

I adore fun spooky Halloween stuff! I had lots of fun making this card. It will be one of the make and take options at my Open House on September 9th. This new set is called Cauldron Bubble. I love this saucy little cat. Here's a closer look:

My last card share is this fun and quick Christmas card. It uses a stamp and the punch from the Christmas Traditions Punch Box. And the new Sprig Punch. 
We'll be making a variation of this at my Open House.  

Last up, I'm sharing a scrapbook page.  I love scrapbooking. I love being able to look at and share my pictures. (Really! We must not leave our pictures trapped in our phones) And I've got plans to offer a scrapbooking class or club soon. So keep your eye out for that. I love pocket scrapbooking and using our Memories and More cards packs. I also like a more traditional scrapbook page. For this page, which focuses on just one picture, was made using supplies and stamps from one of our Paper Pumpkin kits. 
I'm planning to use this page for my son's birthday coming up in December.

Thanks so much for checking out my blog today. I shared a wide variety of projects. If you need  more detailed information, let me know. 
The 2018 Holiday Catalog will be available for ordering on Sept 5.

Stay Crafty!
