Gift Box Punch Board Purse & OnStage Savannah Recap

I was so honored that 4 of my team members (The Paper Pixies) attended OnStage Local in Savannah, Georgia with me! I created this adorable purse using the Gift Box Punch Board (which is retiring, so hurry and buy it – it’s on sale for $12!). It’s a pretty good-sized purse, so I filled it with all kinds of goodies to give as a gift to my team members (& my dear friend Jackie!). I followed this tutorial from Papercraft Button to make it – so easy! Here are the supplies I used:

Sneak Peek! The flower on the front is a new sneak peek product from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog! You can get your hands on the Eastern Palace Suite early though! I’ll share more details as it gets closer, but mark your calendars for May 1 (wink!).

As a demonstrator, I had the opportunity to attend a Stampin’ Up! demonstrators-only event, called OnStage Local, in Savannah, Georgia. While the main event, called OnStage Live, was in Amsterdam, we gathered in various locations across the United States to see and receive the new Annual Catalog, watch live and recorded stamping demonstrations, create make & takes, and hang out with other demonstrators for the weekend! It was a blast!! As I mentioned in my Top 10 Reasons Why Joining Stampin’ Up! is the Best Decision Ever blog post, this event combines my #1 and #2 reasons in one – the community and the friendships!

7 of us carpooled together from Atlanta, because driving is more fun with company! We arrived a day early to enjoy Savannah – which included lots of yummy food and desserts along River Street. During OnStage, not only did we pour over the new catalog, stamp, and watch demonstrations, but we also celebrated demonstrator achievements and won Prize Patrols, which makes everyone VERY excited! We’re all smiles…

Interested in jumping in on the fun? I’d love to have you join my team of Paper Pixies! Call, text or email me anytime if you want to chat about it!
