Silver Elite Diva Day: Poppy Party

Every 6 months I treat my Silver Elite Pretties Team members to a Diva Day of dinner, stamping and gifts just to honor their hard work. Silver Elite is a hard title to get to and a hard title to maintain, so a party to celebrate is in order! We always start with a quick dinner our because you know, Stamping is our #1 priority. I always forget to take photos at dinner.

So important, we get the sign out!

Isn't she adorable!?! Elizabeth Mayfield- Hart is a superstar!  And her sweater even matches the cards. 

We used the Poppy Suite from the NEW January June 2020 Mini Catalog. I am in love! 

These projects we made were designed by Erica Cerwin, aren't they stunning?  I will be offering this as a class in the new year

Divas deserve a bag of new products! 

Gifts galore! 

 Inside the bag was a pair of killer scissors, a mini light box and a personalized doo dad holder (its' probably for rings, but likely will hold embellishments!) 

Make and Takes all prepped and ready!

Elizabeth was my first Team Member, so we had to reminisce over that fateful day! 

So grateful to our friendship and this lady's hard work!  Would you like to earn your way into the next Diva Day? The best way is to join the Pretties Team Business Builder's Facebook Group and get to work!  See you in 6 months!

Onstage Online Team Gifts

I love spoiling my Pretties Team when we travel to Onstage Stampin' Up gatherings. A few weekends ago we went to Atlanta, Georgia to stamp with hundreds of stamping friends and to receive our NEW Spring catalogs.  

Tamra Davis is a Stampin' up Demonstrator who makes the coolest personalized team gifts and I chose this personalized bone folder for my Pretties Team at Onstage Atlanta. I also made a cute bow to clip to the packaging which we then could remove and clip onto our nametags. The pouch was designed from Rococo Rose cardstock at 2 1/2" x 11" wide and scored about 1/3 of the way across the longest side. I then stamped on the visible areas with the Here's To Strong Women and It Starts With Art stamp sets with Rococo Rose ink. The front flap is adhered to itself with Tear and Tape adhesive and held nicely. The bone folder slips right in.

We have so many Pretties VIP friends that join us and I wanted them to have something special to remember us by, so I made them a cute bow.  

Then of course, our Pretties Team needed bows too.  

Some of us loved them as hair decor

We were thrilled for Casey, our friend to join us for dinner on Friday. 

Even Tanner Smedley got a Pretties Team VIP bow and sported it with all the other team swag he received. We were so proud to have him as our special friend for the weekend. Some would say my team is lucky because I spoil them to death, but in reality, the inspriation I receive from them is so much more than the gifts they receive.  I am proud to honor them for their hard work.  Click here to find out more about Onstage Events.

Atlanta Onstage Recap


Onstage Atlanta was a few weekends ago and I am still reeling from the fun and inspiration that a girls weekend with my bestie stamp friends provided.  I love a good road trip with my Pretties Team  and VIP friends, but to add stamping on top of it? PURE BLISS!  

We started on Friday night before with total spoilage for the Silver Elite and above level demonstrators. We had our upline Rebecca Liggin, special friend Rick Adkins and my superstar team members Cindy Griffin, Patience Holt and Elizabeth Mayfield-Hart.  

The tables were set with fanciness galore. It's so nice to be pampered!  Stampin' Up spares no expense to honor us. 

We got an exclusive stamp set, a cute business card holder and an outstanding meal

These 3 are my Silver Elite team members and I am so proud of all the hard work they do!  

We always like to gather for cocktails in the hotel before we gather officially. We so rarely get to chat at home and it's one of my favorite things about the weekend.  

This year there was a different type of prize patrol. Marilyn Jones and I received 2 stamp seats each.  We had to choose one to give away to someone that we chose.  

These ladies were soooo surprised

What a fun, new way to prize patrol!

We all really love to win new stamps

Here is one of the 4 make and takes we made. Poppies are gorgeous, are they not?  

We were ecstatic to win a free pack of paper for everyone!  

Swapping is one of the most fun events at Onstage. It's just as much fun to meet new people as it is to receive pretty swaps. 

At the end Stampin' Up lets us divvy up the goodies on the table. We get kinda over the top excited over free stuff. 

The end of the long, wonderful day was a huge dinner with the Pretties Team and friends at The Corner Grille in Atlanta. The Pretties Team eats by my treat and our friends join us for more fun. This is most of the Arkansas contingent and Rick, our Alabama friend.  These events fuel me with inspiration until the next one comes around.  Would you like to party with the Pretties too? Click here to find out more about being on the Pretties Team and then YOU can have this much fun at Onstage! The next gathering is Backstage in April or May 2020 then we're off to Salt Lake City Nov 2019! I can not wait.
