This past weekend was a busy one at my house. Due to the pandemic, the OnStage Stampin’ Up! event was moved to a virtual platform. I missed gathering together with all the other demonstrators and socializing with old friends and making new ones. On the plus side, it was much cheaper, no travel or hotel expense and I was able to invite some of my team members to join me for a Watch Party on Friday.

As a perk for registering for OnStage we were able to order one of the suites from the upcoming January to June 2021 Mini-Catalog. We received instructions ahead of time with dimensions for 3 cards, so I cut kits for all of us and we were able to stamp along with the 10,072 other demonstrators watching the virtual event!

Create a fun swarm of tiny dragonflies by stamping the group of small dragonflies multiple times.

The matching Dragonfly Punch cuts out both a large and a small dragonfly.

Part of the suite is the cute little metal ladybug embellishments that are part of this card design.

There are always lots of great stamping presentations which gives me inspiration to head back into my craft room for more fun. Interspersed with the stamping are business tips and ideas.

There are fun facts from the State of Stampin’ Up! presentation. Things like the fact that the first day the 2020 Annual Catalog went live Stampin’ Up! saw the largest one day of sales ever. The top 3 stamp sets were: #1 Thoughtful Blooms (Sale-a-bration) #2 Happy Birthday (Sale-abration) #3 Dressed To Impress. The event ended with Shelli Gardner, Founder of Stampin’ Up! and Sara Douglas, CEO stamping together, which is always a highlight for me. They are such a hoot.

I ended the day off Saturday with fire trucks in my yard. My husband was doing some work with our bulldozer when the poor old thing caught fire. Hubby is fine and no trees or grass caught fire but the poor bulldozer is going to be headed for the scrap yard. Maybe my horses won’t be getting a new pasture fence after all?

I hope that you had a great weekend, and it didn’t involve any fire trucks.
