On Stage Las Vegas!

Hey everybody! I've just returned home from an AMAZING weekend with all of my Stampin; Up friends at Las Vegas On Stage. It truly was my favorite one yet! I laughed so much this weekend my abs are sore and smiled so much my cheeks are sore!! 

When I arrived on Friday, I checked into my hotel, Paris! Look at the view from my room!! This photo was taken from my window. Wow! And at night, it sparkled!! 

I had a delicious brunch with several members of my team, The Sweet Stampede. It was a beautiful morning and it was SO GOOD to see them all again and to catch up. 

I headed over to the event for my rehearsal. I had the honor of presenting a new suite called Peaceful Poppies. It was thirty minutes long!! I think thats the longest presentation I've done. So, working out the kinks on Friday was good. It made for a much smoother presentation on Saturday! 

Next up was Center Stage. This is the exclusive event for Silver Elite and above. I had a very large group of Silver Elites with me in Vegas. It was amazing! We met for drinks in the beautiful Paris hotel before we head dover. (Were actually missing a few in this picture plus my bestie Ange was with us too!) 

The Paris Hotel was amazing. It was connected to Ballys which is where the actual event was. We spent most of our time there because it was less smokey and just so beautiful! 

I love the bathroom! I had to take a picture! Look at it! It doesn't look like a public bathroom... So FRENCH! 

At Center Stage we enjoyed some goodies for out achievement. 

A Top Performer Necklace.

And Top Performer Pins for out lanyards.

We also got a stamp set and a business card holder. 

The next day it was time for the big event! I was lucky enough to grab three tables for us all to sit together. Everyone was so excited! 

My team is spread all over the United States. Alessandra is from Southern California and Heather is from Colorado. These events provide an opportunity for us to spend some "in person" time together, which I really enjoy! 

And of course, it provides the opportunity to spend time with FRIENDS. Angela is from Canada and we'd never see each other otherwise! Thank God for Stampin' up and the opportunities this company provides us. 

I love this picture of some of my downline because it just shows how excited everyone was!! 

Another really fun part of On Stage is the recognition! I got to walk the stage many times this weekend. I am EXTREMELY grateful for all of my customers, downline and supportive family and friends who have helped me reach many goals I thought were just pipe dreams! I just wanted to pinch myself all day! How lucky and blessed am I?!

Blowing kisses to my downline! I LOVE my team and my success is simply because they are amazing! 

This picture made me laugh! Not sure what I was doing, but I think it's pretty funny! 

Another amazing thing that happened is getting up and presenting in front of over 1000 people!! 

 I prepared a presentation on Product Based Classes, specifically using the Peaceful Poppies Suite. 

It was a little nerve wracking, but such a thrill! 

I specifically focused on the beautiful Designer Series paper. You're going to love it! You'll see all of it in January when the new Mini Catalog goes live. 

It's always a thrill to see everyone taking photos of my display! 

I know you're wondering- YES! This will be offered in January either as a class or a Facebook Live. So, stay tuned! 

Here is a little collage so you can have a sneak peek! :-) 

I also met lots of new people in Las Vegas. It's a thrill to meet so many of you who say you follow my blog and Facebook page. I appreciate all of you! 

I was also recognized for my Platinum Elite promotion. There were only three Platinum Elite promotions all year! 

We walked across to celebrate the Global 100 and Maui Trip achievement. 

And of course, LOTS of prize patrol! 

Antoinette was one of just a very few people who had a Meerkat Badge in her bag. This meant she won every single prize patrol!!! 

I won't the Forever Blossoms stamp set!  

It was Mike's first time an On Stage and he was happy to have won prize patrol too! 

And last, I have to finish with these two photos. We had a fun team dinner on Saturday night and I don't think I've laughed this much in YEARS!!! You can see everyone had tears!! This is the best part of any Stampin' Up event. Laughing and making memories with your stamping friends!! If you are interested in joining us next time, check out the Starter Kit info here. We'd love to have you on our team! 

And one more fun picture from dinner- did you know if you take your picture laying back, you look ten years younger!!! LOL!! Try it, and you'll see why we were laughing so much! 

I'll share display samples later this week and I plan on going Live either Tuesday or Wednesday to show you all the goodies I got! See you then!

Facebook Thursday- Yummy Christmas

Hello everybody! It's time for this week's Facebook Friday- on Thursday! I'll be traveling tomorrow to Stampin' Up's POn Stage event so I needed to jump on s day early. Hopefully you can catch the replay if you missed me. 

 Today, I'm going to show you three different projects featuring the Yummy Christmas stamp set. This stamp set has a set of coordinating dies called Cuckoo Clock. These dies are in a bundle with another stamp set called Cuckoo For You.  When you buy the bundle, you save 10%! Then you can add the Yummy Christmas stamp set and have two stamp sets that match the dies! 

 In case you've never joined me for Facebook Live, I go live every week, (typically on Friday at 2:00 CST) on my Pink Buckaroo Stampers Group page with three projects. Everyone is welcome to join! 

If you are unable to join me live, I will upload the recording here afterwards.

First up is a Boozy Gingerbread Man Gift Set. Of course you can always substitute something else for the peppermint booze. I think a little bag of marshmallows or even a second pack of hot chocolate would be great! This gingerbread house is colored with Stampin' blends. It is quite an undertaking and will take you about 10 minutes to color. But, if you're like me and enjoy coloring, it's really fun! 

For the next project, we'll make this little clam shell box. For this gingerbread house, I stamped it on Crumb Cake Cardstock to save a little time coloring. I also used Snowfall Puff Paint to add icing! I'm going to show you a better way to apply the puff paint so that you get a more precise placement.  

And last, we'll make a lip gloss box. I used this lip gloss from Bth and Body Works.  This time, we won't color the gingerbread house at all! Just stamp it in the background and done! 

They have all the products I used and measurements for each project. 

***Remember, if you put in an order ($35 minimum) by 
Monday November 18th, 2019 at midnight, 
I'll send you all three make and takes for free!
