It’s been a crazy weekend and beginning to my week.  Two demo meetings, Coffee and Cards and then the Exciting Catalog Premiere.  So much fun rolled into just a few days!  I have lots of make and takes and swaps to share with you in the next couple of days.

Today I want to share this cute Scalloped Tag Topper Punch Box we made at the Demo meeting I attended Saturday evening.  It was designed by a special friend, Monika Davis.  I had ten of my downline attending the Catalog Premiere and decided to make each of them one filled with candy treats.  I used several different designer series papers and completely forgot to take a picture in all the excitement!  They all want to know how to make them so I decided we would make them at our May Stamp Club which begins this Sunday (week early due to Mother’s Day).  If you’re a club member get signed up for one of the classes today and if you’re not you can still join us.  Check the schedule to see if one of the classes is convenient for you.

I was really looking forward to the Catalog Premiere Monday night and then received an email from Stampin’ Up! asking that I participate in a focus group earlier in the day. Since Monika was also asked we headed to Maggiano’s at Premiter Mall to meet Anita and the group for lunch.  It was an awesome lunch with lots of ideas shared.

After lunch Monika and I did some shopping (mostly window) at the mall and headed to meet the rest of our downline at Galla’s Pizza.  I still wasn’t hungry but my downline said all the food was great!  So if you happen to be in the area Galla’s Pizza comes highly recommended.

Next we headed to the theatre.  Over 7000 demos gathered in theaters all over the states to see the unveiling of the new Annual Catalog! They welcomed us in Stampin’ Up! style!  It was a great evening with lots of on stage stamping and project sharing.  And as always lots of Prize Patrols!  Two of my downline, Cicely and Chris, each won three of the new In Color Ink Pads.  I was so excited for them…it’s always fun to win Prize Patrol!!

And now for the new Annual Catalog….

I know you wish you could take a look inside.  It’s pretty amazing this year.  Lots of new and exciting projects and ideas.  As a demo I get to pre-order beginning May 1 as do all my team members.  We already have good sized wish lists started. 🙂  If you want to learn how to become a team member please contact me.
