Oh My Goodies Double Treat Cup Holder (Video) Fancy Friday Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the April Fancy Friday Blog hop! 
This month's theme is anything but a card- right up my alley! I love making treat holders! This month, I designed a treat cup holder! I have seen something similar on Pinterest using products I don't have, so I decided to design one using Stampin' Up products!

These treat holders hold small treat cups that are sometimes called "Jello Shot Cups." Ha! I purchased them online and you can find a link at the end of this post. They make a great little snack sized treat holder!

I used the retiring Oh My Goodies and Deco Labels Framelits to create the tag here along with my favorite Shine On DSP. 

This one features the Shine on DSP without cardstock. I found it wasn't as sturdy as the cardstock, so I definitely like using cardstock first and then adding DSP panels. 

The Oval Punches are retiring too! 

This one holds three cups! Don't you just love the "ombre" look of this candy! 
 Check out my video to see where they are from. 

Oh look, my "Apple of My Eye" strawberry...again! Ha! Once I find something I like, I use it ALOT!! 
But doesn't it look fab with that giant Watermelon Wonder bow behind it? 

Ok, so now you need to make these, right? Just in time for Teacher Appreciation!

Suite Sayings

Good morning everyone! 

I realized yesterday that I never showed you this month's Stamp Club card project! We make three projects, and one is always a card. This month's card featured the Suite Sayings stamp set in the Occasions Catalog. I am happy to report that this set is carrying over to the new catalog! Yay! It's a GREAT set to have in your collection. It has really cute and fun useful sentiments. 

We also used my favorite DSP, Shine On. It's so versatile, don't you think? 

I have a new group of Stamp Club to Go beginning in May. You will get your own SPIRAL BOUND copy of this catalog! Woot! 

You can read all the details regarding Stamp Club To Go here. 
Email me if you have any questions or if you are ready to join!

A Little Smile

Hello everyone! I have had lots of questions about getting the new catalog. It's not available online until June 1 (the first day you can order from it!) Stampin' Up Demos (me) can begin order the catalogs the first week of May. I will be mailing them out mid may to everyone who has ordered from me in the last six months for free. If you are a member of my Stamp Club To Go, you get one that is spiral bound! 

If you don't qualify for a free one, not worries! It's still free, I just ask that you pay the shipping. I will be mailing them via Priority Mail and the cost is $6.80. Email me to let m know you'd like one! 

Today I have another card featuring a fun retiring stamp set. this one has NEVER been used! When I opened the box, it wasn't even mounted. Sad! 
I also used a sneak peek product from the new catalog. Can you tell what it is? The Scallop Square- it's part of the new square Framelits! The stamp set is called A Little Smile. The DSP is from Farmer's Market and Go Wild
I also used the 2 1/2" Circle Punch to punch out just the sentiment from this stamp. This is retiring too! Lastly, I used the It's My Party Enamel Dots to finish off the design. And yes, those are retiring too. :-)

Sea Street

So have you checked out the retired List?
 Lots of things are already sold out, but stamps are guaranteed till the end of May. 

I'm going to be highlighting stamp sets that I love over the next six weeks as we near the end of this catalog cycle. Today, I am focusing on Sea Street! This stamp set has been a favorite since it came out. I even got it early back in 2014 so I could demo it on our incentive trip. So, it holds a special place in my heart for sure. 

This is the one I made last week for next month's Simply Beautiful Card Class.

And here are some I made in the past. 
This one also features the retiring World Map Background Stamp. 

This one features the past stamp sets Sweetie Pie Faces, Woodgrain and Hip notes, and sadly they are long gone...but you could easily subsitute the woodgrain embossing folder and other sentiments. 

And this is the cutie I demoed on our Allure Incentive trip back in 2014. 

You can access the Retired List here
Make sure you get what you want before it's GONE for good!
The current catalogs are good through May 31st, 
but all tools and non stamp items are only available "while supplies last."

On Stage Live Salt Lake City 2016- Day 2

Day 2 was a mother full day at On Stage in Salt Lake City! 
Lots of fun with other demo friends, make and takes and new products!

I actually found this picture on Shell Gardens blog yesterday. It is a fun picture with some demos that I love and respect a lot! I will say though that you can tell by my hair that is was POURING down rain! LOL!

On of the things I loved were the displays behind the presenters in the Product Spotlight. The presenters were FABULOUS too!! 

This one was a reproduction of some of the cards in the new card kit! How FUN! 

Even the table decorations were beautiful! In fact, they were so beautiful, that people started taking them! Dell had to announce on the stage that anyone who had taken them needed to return them!! LOL! Yes, we all get a little crazy over beautiful SU things And NO, it wasn't me!! (Although it did actually enter my mind that I would love to take them...But I didn't!! LOL!!)

I also spent some time in the Show and Tell area where you could see and touch some of the new products. I do have to say that this Fiesta set is FABULOUS! Being from San Antonio, where we have a two week event called Fiesta and my kids actually have the day off form school tomorrow because of it, this set will be well loved here! 

And a LLAMA! Ha! My daughter will LOVE this! 

There is also a new builder punch- The Fox Builder! hey said that you could make any animal with pointy ears with it. Fun! 

And look at these precious samples! 

There was also a big presentation on Paper Pumpkin. This is the current month's kit, which is super fun! I did take a picture of next months kit and if you want to see it, head over to my Facebook Group page. Make sure you have signed up for Paper Pumpkin! It really is such a fun gift to give yourself. 

They even added some new Paper Pumpkin items to the Demonstrator supply list. Look at the red trash can! Can't wait to get that! 

I loved getting my hands on the new products. This suite was something we could order while at On Stage. I did a video on my Facebook Group page yesterday of the unboxing and you can see it here

The weather had started to clear and this was the view from my room when I went back to get ready for dinner. Breath taking. I truly LOVE Salt Lake City!

I ended the night at an incredible place called Spitz with some of my favorite friends! 
THIS is my favorite part of any Stampin' Up event! 
Thanks for showing me some amazing food Jane, Melody and Chrissy!!

On Stage Live Salt Lake City 2016- Day 1

Hello everyone! Today, I am going to share just some of the photos from my first day at On Stage last week! When we arrived it was very cold and very rainy. Very different than all the other times I've been in SLC! 

I flew in the morning it started so I was tired, and rained on, but I powered through and had a great time! We started out with a general session. It was so much fun seeing Stampin' Up  my friends again! (That really is the BEST part of being in SLC!)

Connie Stewart and I were part of a gourd in SLC last April for a two day research group, so it was great to run into her! 

My sweet friend Kay and her downline, The Pretties, invited me to hang with them since none of my team was there this time! They had matching shirts and were SO FUN!! Thank you Kay!!! 

It was a big party when things got kicked off. I mean there was confetti streamers EVERYWHERE!! 

It was a great way to get things started. 

Shelli and Sara came welcomed ut. It was wonderful to have Shelli back in SLC! She;'s been gone on a mission for a year! 

They didn't make us wait too long- catalogs were passed out almost immediately! 

After a few hours of training, it was time for Center Stage, a reward event for leaders. We were served a delicious 4 course meal! 

Everyone was dressed up in black and white and it was a really fun atmosphere. 

We were treated to Dueling Pianos and they were awesome!! Such a fun, fun evening! 

And when we left, we were given this adorable little bag! Won't it her perfect for my Mediterranean Cruise next month!? I think it's my favorite SU bag ever!

Alright, that's it for today. I
ll be back tomorrow with more pictures. Remember, you can jump over to my Facebook Group to see all the unedited photos of displays!!
