Have you ever wondered about what a Stampin’ Up! event is like for Demonstrators? The first weekend in November I was able to attend our regional On Stage event in the Atlanta area! Anticipation was high as Deborah and I drove south from Clarkesville into Atlanta to participate in a Sherrie’s Shoe Box Swap the day before the actual event. It was Deborah’s first Stampin’ Up! event and I knew she was going to love it!
One of the fun things about these events that I enjoy is being able to spend time with team members, friends and fellow demonstrators from around the country that I’ve met along my stamping journey! And of course I love to pamper my team and room mates.
Want to see what my room mate pillow gifts included? Well here is the batch I made for everyone.
And a close up of of the pillow gift. (I got carried away since I was having so much fun with the pillow gifts. What’s new right?) The little popcorn box wouldn’t hold it all. LOL!
But that was OK tho since the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series paper I was using is so lovely.. I didn’t want to stop.
Traditionally I always make a name tag for the bag we’ll receive. It helps to keep track of things! Especially when it’s filled with goodies!
This year I used clip art from the event to create the tags – do you recognize the star pattern paper from the Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper? I couldn’t resist putting a little bit of holiday magic into the tags.
Here is what was inside the popcorn box.
Since everyone is always on the move and sharing things I like to include hand sanitizer, too. This year I used these pocket sized wipes.
And who can’t use a little package of tissues?
along with some gum and a few pieces of candy.
I also found these wonderful post it note flags and couldn’t resist!
I thought the flags were perfect for marking our NEW Occasions Catalogs with!!! And OMG – I can’t wait for you to see it! I’m loving everything in it – my poor little post it flags are all used up! LOL! (I can’t wait for you to see the products at my Occasions Catalog Launch – I’ll let you know about it soon. But if you’d like to see it before it goes live, why not join my team? Demonstrators get to see things at least 30 days early!)
These pillow gifts greeted everyone in the hotel room.
And for my Team member I made a little something special – you can never have enough note books!
I really love the way this turned out. Can you see the watermark images done with the Paisleys & Poises stamp set (142196) on the initial? I also used the Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper (142017) and coordinating 3/8″ Ribbon Trio Pack (142021). LOVE this pack of paper – it’s so pretty and the colors are gorgeous together. (I can’t wait to make some more of these for holiday gifts.)
I think Deborah liked it too.
Stampin’ Up! makes an event special with a themed bag that you receive to hold all those goodies and giveaways!
And the tables are always decorated lovely – This years theme was based on the Lift Me Up stamp set.
And what can I say Stampin’ Up! out did themselves this year! Lot’s of fun, great ideas, sharing and more. And I can’t believe all the wonderful goodies we were given! Between our bag goodies, prize patrol and all event giveaways I was thrilled with lot’s of great products. And then at the very end of the event Stampin’ Up! announced we could share the items on the table that we’d used for our make n takes too!!! Wow! Starting with the most recent birthday we went around the table and chose items until they were gone! What fun.
My bag was over flowing by the end of the event.
And finally here is my Team photo of Deborah & I. (Unfortunately the Atlanta event sold out so quickly that not everyone on the Team who wanted to attend was able to go.)
But great news for my team and those of us in the Southeast – Our spring On Stage will be in Savannah, Georgia!!! Whoo hoo! Of course we’re already planning on a team trip!
