OnStage 2017 Experience

Today’s post is a little different than normal.  Hopefully you won’t be terribly disappointed.

I attended OnStage Live in Salt Lake City last weekend.  It has taken me some time to get it all together and be able to share photos and stuff.  The photo above are some of my team members, I look horrible because I was so sick.  But I made it.  I was there!

What a wonderful experience.

First and foremost I want to thank my team members that attended for their love and support as I was ill for the entire trip.  But I pushed through and made it work.

Second I want to thank ALL of my team members and my customers for the awesome honor of being your leader or chosen demonstrator.  You have no idea how precious it is to me that you choose me.  Because of your choice I am able to provide my daughter with piano lessons, and swim lessons, and I am able to go on trips to see the world.  Your choice has given me and my family a better life.  I am able to help those that need help and able to give more than I have ever been able to give.

For that I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

So without further ado here is how my weekend shook out.  These awards are so special because I know what it takes from each person helping me to get there.

OnStage was so much fun!  The next one is in April and I can’t wait.

I miss my friends already.

12 Weeks Of Christmas, Week 7, Simple Fold Crossover Box

This box is so simple and fun to make.  I would love to take credit for the creation of it, but I can’t.  I found it on Pinterest and Nicole Heady was the original creator.

However, Nicole didn’t have a video for you, and you know me.  I like to create videos so you have a visual.  I am a visual learner, so in my mind people don’t know how to do something unless they see it in motion.

Here are some simple printable instructions for you.

Hope you enjoy the video.


Supplies used to create this project are listed below.   You can purchase them in my online store by clicking on the images.

REMINDER:  Any minimum purchase of $50 or more (before tax and shipping) will receive a brand new pair of Stampin’ Blends AND a coloring kit.  If your order is more than $150 do NOT use the host code, you will still get the free goodies.  The free items are mailed separately, from me, not Stampin’ UP! and will be mailed after Nov 25th.  These items are only available for one order, during the offer period.  Meaning if you place a second order, you will not receive a second set kits and embellishments.  Offer is Oct 22 – Nov 22.  Subscribing to Paper Pumpkin does not count towards a $50 order unless you purchase a pre paid subscription.  This offer is only through me, Wendy Cranford, and is not a Stampin’ UP! offer.  Offer only available to online orders.

Today I have a fun video for you talking about the Stamparatus and showing off some fun gifts that friends gave me during travels this last week.

I truly hope you enjoy the video.  It was recorded on Monday live, so it’s no longer live when you’re watching it now on You Tube.

At 2:00pm MST today (1pm PST, 3pm CST, 4pm EST) you can reserve your Stamparatus.  

If you need help with the reservation process or don’t understand it PLEASE contact me at wendy.cranford@live.com and I will call  you personally to walk you through it.

You do need to have an online account with Stampin’ UP! … this is the account you would normally order from.
