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.

Flirtatious Marker Case

Here's a fun project using Stampin' Up!'s new fabric line called Flirtatious Designer Fabric.  It isn't my own idea – I got it from Convention this past July – but I made it my own by adding some piping around the edges to bring in the third color of fabric.  The Stampin' Up! version used just 2 of the 3 fabrics and was less sewing – you can just put the pieces together using the Fabric Adhesive Roll and use pinking shears on the edges rather than the trim.  This case is designed to hold the two sets of In Color Markers each year, for a total of 10 markers.  You could also use it for a travel case for make-up brushes or change the size a bit and use it for children's crayons.

Here's a picture of the case as it's rolled up and tied closed.  The 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon in Melon Mambo coordinates perfectly.

Everyone likes a little competition, right?  So I'm giving this fun marker case to the first person on my Stampin' Up! Team of From the Heart Stampers who signs up a new member!  Won't that be fun!

Item No. 122335 Flirtatious Designer Fabric $9.95
Item No. 122985 Melon Mambo 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon $7.95
Item No. 122194 Big Shot Fabric Adhesive Roll $14.95
Item No. 123002 2011-13 In Color Assorted Stampin' Write Markers $14.95
Item No. 119801 2010-12 In Color Assorted Stampin' Write Markers $14.95
