Enjoy Today with Magnolia Lane

Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event was yesterday, and demonstrators who attended have now seen the Occasions Mini Catalog and earned some free product. We’ll also be able to purchase select items – and I can’t wait to share that with you. First, though, I want to share a little bit more about Brian’s Fall Stamp-Along that was held on Friday. I’m going to give a full recap of the day’s happenings (and that might take me two full posts), but that will come later. First, here’s one of the gifts that greeted attendees as they entered the room:

Good Morning Magnolia, Magnolia Lane, Stampin' Up!, Brian King Good Morning Magnolia, Magnolia Lane, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingI could think of no better way to host a Southern party than with the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper. The tables were festooned with magnolias to match! I layered a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock with a banner of Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper, followed by a banner of Mossy Meadow, a Petal Pink Tailored Tag Punch and a sentiment stamped in a Stitched Rectangles Die.

Here’s a look at the patterns and colors in this incredible pack of Designer Series Papers:

Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up! 2019 Annual Catalog, 149484These pillow boxes were designed after a couple of other treat boxes I’ve shared, but I think you’ll agree that they have a life of their own. Here’s a quick look at the other boxes I’ve shared (you can click on the pictures below to see the original posts for each):

Share What You Love Pillow Box, Lots of Happy, Stampin' Up!, Brian King Spooktacular Bash Bundle, Itty Bitty Greetings, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, Halloween treat box Gather Together Bundle, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, Thanksgiving treat pouchDo you see the similarities? 🙂 Do you see how each one still has its own personality?

Since I made enough treat boxes for every member of my event to receive one, I had lots and lots to share. You already know how much I like to take infinity shots when I make lots of one design (or, in this case, lots of two designs since I used to patterns of paper), so I’m excited to share two infinity shots with you.

This one shows how the bands are positioned on the pillow boxes to work with the curves of the assembled box (I’ve adhered the banners to the box with a strip of Tear & Tape in the center to allow the side to pop off the assembled box:

Good Morning Magnolia, Magnolia Lane, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingHow was I able to create so many boxes and only use two patterns in this gorgeous pack of papers? Easy answer…Stampin’ Up! recently released a Magnolia Lane Bulk Designer Series Paper that includes only four of the patterns: Magnolia Lane Bulk Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up! 152455This bulk package includes 20 sheets of patterned paper (10 each of 2 double-sided designs from the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper). What a joy!

I love this mix of colors that was pulled from the pillow box and the paper that adorned it. In case you love this color combination as much as I do, here’s a graphic you can save to reference:

  1. LOVE your gorgeous Magnolia Lane pillow boxes. Hope you had LOTS of fun at On Stage.

  2. What a beauty! Love the layers. Miss you!

  3. Beautiful pillow boxes! How perfect for your southern party! I always enjoy the infinity shots – it must be so satisfying to see them all lined up!!

  4. Looking at your infinity shots, I can never figure out HOW you manage to accomplish so much–whether or not you create far in advance, film, write and then schedule the post for a later time, it still is alot of work. And you post daily, with no cop-out of only just reposting something from SU. Then on top of that, you shoulder the Herculean job of planning and hosting an all-day event for 150 or more of your closest friends, create elaborate gifts for them all, design and put together make and takes, make swaps to share, all without sacrificing one bit of inspirational creativity (or layers ?). I am always in awe.
    Oh. And the pillow boxes are FABULOUS! Can’t wait to see more from the weekend.

    • Linda has said exactly what I wanted to say. Thanks Linda! You are, without a doubt, one amazing guy Brian and I feel so privileged to be among your admirers!

      • I totally agree with Grace and Linda. When do you sleep? I wish I could take those infinity shots you so love. I am just tired thinking about it all. After treating the police, fire and ambulance crews to the Paper Pumpkin Halloween boxes I was so tired. But, at the store yesterday I saw a couple of firemen and asked if they enjoyed the little boxes of goodies. Everyone around us heard the joy in them telling how some traded candies who preferred one kind over another or who wanted a Skeleton over the spider web or the little monsters. I can only imagine the happiness you brought with your goodies and the gala!

  5. Outstanding display of beautiful delights! You’re amazing! When I grow up, I wanna be just like you!??♥️

  6. Loved it and the pin inside..thank you for being so thoughtful with so many details of the day!

  7. Great job Brian, your infinity shot always amazes me! I’m sure they were a big hit.

  8. Love your infinity shots. This project is fantastic and I’m sure all the attendees loved them. Can’t wait to see the rest of the goodies for the event. Kick back and enjoy your day!

  9. The Kraft pillow box is such an awesome product, so versatile. And you make it look so beautiful.

  10. Ohh!! these little pillow boxes are darling, the paper is just so beautiful, what a beautiful gift to receive.
    Love the infinity shot, you should make a video to show us how you accomplish such a perfect picture.
    Thank you for sharing.
