Roomie Gifts I Received at OnStage


One of the absolute best perks I have received as being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is the perk of meeting so many wonderful new friends, both among my customers and fellow demonstrators. Recently a group of fellow demonstrators and I attended OnStage Local in Red Deer, Alberta and we had a great time despite the freezing temperatures!

One of the sweetest traditions at Stampin' Up! Events is the tradition of Roomie Gifts, little presents that you give to your hotel roommates! It seems I forgot to take photos of the boxes I made for my roomie gifts, but I did photograph the wonderful containers my roomies made to hold the gifts they gave me! It was like Christmas! I wanted to share what these talented ladies created!


This lovely box was created by my sideline, Holly Finney, from the Sale-a-Bration Specialty Designer Series Paper, Springtime Foils! Gorgeous, isn't it? I love the way Holly added the cut out flower from one of the designs on the top and the two little tags on the side with the Copper Metallic Thread and bow from Gold ribbon. Those mixed metallics are so on trend these days.


This beautiful gift bag was the creation of my downline, Karen Bridden! I love the design with the overlapping flap at the top, but what really got my attention was the eye-catching tag with my initial on it! Look at the masterful layering of all the elements on it! Love it!



























My downline, Doreen Austgarden, did something I've always wanted to do, but never got up the gumption to try. She stamped tile coasters for all of us! Won't these be fabulous on our craft room desks? Her image is from the Beautiful You stamp set, which will be in the new catalogue, and the sentiment is from the Work of Art stamp set, which is retiring this year. Then she created the perfectly sized box for them from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack with tags to match!



Terry Hamilton, a fellow demonstrator, created some really unique gifts in her mini shopping bags!


I love this Post It Note holder she made from scratch, using some old White Corrugated Paper as the hinge (what a perfect solution!!) and some DSP from the Delightful Daisy series, which is actually now sold out. And that cute tag, stamped with the Labeler Alphabet Stamp Set.

Then she got out her Crafting Forever stamp set and Shrinky Dinks sheets to make us these adorable scissor charms! She had quite the adventure trying to find the proper chain to make them for as well!

So what do you think! I was spoiled, no?  I didn't even show you have the stuff that was in the boxes! So amazing! Just one more reason for you to join my team to get to know all these creative, kind people! There's just no one like crafters!!


Don't forget to order your faves from the Occasions and Annual Catalogues while supplies last!
