Stamp Fest: A Fun-Filled Day of Stamping!

Four times a year there are "over the top" events that are exclusive to Heartfelt Stamper's Team members — a Baggie Book event, a Weekend Retreat and two Stamp Fests.

Right now, we're gearing up for Stamp Fest – our next Stamp Fest is coming up on June 2nd!

At this event, ALL demonstrators (discount demos, hobby demos and business demos) with gather to test drive some of the fun and fabulous NEW Stampinl Up! product held at the Finger Lakes Casino & Race Track!

  • Stamp Fest will run from 10 am – 5 pm and feature fresh, duplicatible stamping classes!
  • Stamp Fests includes an ALL YOU CAN EAT BUFFET and full beverage service!

This is a wonderful opportunity for you to "play" with ALL of the product available in thedemonstrator Sneak Peek, plus even MORE product from the new catalog that I've been fortunate to receive ahead of time! Since the catalog goes live at noon on June 1st and even next-day air shipments won't be in until Tuesday June 5th, this means you will be using product before ANYONE ELSE!  How fun is THAT!

Here are the classes that will take place during this Stamp Fest:

  • Floral District Card Set: Make an assortment of cards and a card holder to keep them in from the new Floral District Product Suite! You'll love the delicious colors.
    Comfort Cafe Frameable Piece: Get your hands on the new Comfort Cafe Suite, including the new Designer Paper, fabric, Forever with You stamp set, Oval Accent Die and WOOD buttons! You will make a beautiful 12"×12 inser"t to go home and add to your project of choice — a frame, shadow box, scrapbook or other alterable surface.
  • 12-Card Buffet: I've received quite a selection of NEW stamp sets from the NEW catalog, in addition to some new ribbons, accessories and designer papers. To help you be able to showcase a wide assortment of brand new product, you'll make an assortment of 12 cards. This isn't a card set so the cards won't coordinate like in the Floral District set. They are all a wide assortment of cards to show off as much new product as possible. This is an awesome opportunity to give things a little test drive! 

So…. how do you get to join in on this FABULOUS, EXCLUSIVE, event!?

  • Simply Purchase the ALL NEW Starter Kit — $99 for $125 worth of product! This kit is 100% customizable – so it's really like you're just placing a large order!
  • If you have some retiring items still on your wish list, why not order them through the Starter Kit so that you can test drive demonstrator perks! You are under absolutely no commitment or obligation!
  • Not only will you be able to enjoy this fabulous event and many others, but you will also receive a discount on all classes that I hold for my customers! Buying the Starter Kit doesn't mean you sacrifice a thing — you get MORE perks!

More from Oktoberfest Retreat Weekend

I began posting about our Heartfelt Stampers' retreat weekend HERE.  Today, I'll show you some of the adorable gifts and goodies we all received for coming.

Here are some of the treats that everyone who attended received.  Everything was in keeping with the circus theme.

This was a little note card that accompanied a cookie made from Stampin' Up!'s new Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps – it was packaged in a cello bag with a pretty red bow on top, but I ate it!  Am I terrible?  I didn't even wait to snap a photo!

Here is our second pillow gift.  Notice the darling tag made from Under The Big Top stamp set.  And look at that gorgeous Red Glimmer Paper punched out for the bar bells!  It also uses a Mini Clothespin to keep the bag shut.  And inside was some ruffled ribbon.

I showed you a picture before of our amazing popcorn popper – well, here are the containers we used to dish it up!  The popcorn motif was created from the Cupcake Builder Punch, as well as a punch from Itty Bitty Punch Pack.  So clever!

And here's the card I received for my sales for the month of September.  Love this idea of creating a circus tent!  It's made by punching lots of card stock pieces from the Word Window Punch and another image from the Under the Big Top stamp set.

I bet you're wondering how YOU can join us for our next retreat!  There couldn't be a better time than right now! 

GET A FREE BIG SHOT OR $100 IN FREE PRODUCTS as a BONUS with the Stampin' Up! Starter Kit.  October only!  The $175 Starter Kit and Product Bonus are valued at $440 and shipping is FREE! That's a 60% savings!  Check out the details HERE!

AND be sure to call in to our conference call to find out all about purchasing the starter kit – call-in information is HERE.

Oktoberfest Retreat

Once a year, our team of Heartfelt Stampers holds a weekend retreat.  We rent a lodge on Canandaigua Lake in the Finger Lakes area of New York State and meet to relax, enjoy getting to know our team members better, eat wonderful food, laugh and of course stamp!  I took a few pictures, but once the fun begins, I seem to forget about my camera!

This year was a circus theme to take advantage of Stampin' Up!'s Big Top product suite.  We had a huge kitchen to work with, and everyone contributed food for the weekend.  Needless to say, we ate like queens!

We had an authentic carnival popcorn popper with popcorn available all weekend, plus snacks like animal crackers and peanuts.

One section of the lodge is reserved for eating.  Brightly colored tablecloths and cute pinwheel centerpieces fit right in!

Here's a close-up of the centerpieces using Stampin' Up! ribbon, designer paper, card stock and buttons!

I'll continue to show you Oktoberfest pillow gifts and projects in the days to come! 

Don't Forget!
With the fabulous starter kit promotion for October, you can join us for each and every fun team event like the annual retreat!  Click HERE to find out more about choosing your starter kit, including either a FREE Big Shot or FREE $100 shopping spree!  And click HERE to find out all the perks about joining my team!

Leadership Summit project

Every year, our team of Heartfelt Stampers enjoys our annual retreat on Canandaigua Lake in the Finger Lakes region of New York State.  This year, we added an extra day, and our Leadership Team met on Thursday to enjoy some business training and special projects.  Here's what we made!

This is a beautiful memo board I'm going to hang in my office.  It begins with the 12"x12" cardboard from the backing of a package of designer series paper, then hot glue two strips of Cork Sheets found in the Base Materials for the Big Shot.  I covered the cork with Timeless Portrait Designer Fabric and added Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon on all sides Antique Brads decorate the four corners.  Some Basic Black 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon acts as a hanger and is hot glued to the back; I adhered a piece of 12"x12" card stock to cover the back.  Now for all the decorating!  The beautiful butterfly is cut using the Big Shot and Beautiful Butterfly die in Island Indigo card stock.  Lots of the same card stock is punched out using one of the punches from Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, then adhered with Mini Glue Dots. Accent pieces were stamped with Forever Young stamp set, and I personalized it with the letter "K" cut from Timeless Type Junior Alphabet dies and the Big Shot.

Here's a close-up of the sweet little note card hanging from the board.  The Daffodil Delight flower is actually a tack with the head covered with card stock cut out with a punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack.

I'll share a second project we made at our Leadership Summit tomorrow – stay tuned!
