Last weekend I was able to attend the first On Stage Event that Stampin’ Up! held in Tampa, Florida.
On Friday I was able to participate in a shoe box swap with friends and I’ll be sharing some of these great cards with you in the upcoming weeks.
I was so excited to see what the new format for our Demonstrator Events would be like. While the Main Stage was in Brussels, there were 6 different regional events being held at the same time here in the United States and that was in addition to those held in other countries. All total there were more Demonstrators gathered together at one time than in ever before – and the energy was high.
When we entered the ballroom we were greeted by tables filled with new goodies!
The tables were decorated with Blackberry Bliss table cloths and the theme of one of the new suites, Going Places from the 2016 Occasions Catalog was highlighted in all the goodies on the table.
Of course, no Stampin’ Up! event would be complete without a Prize Patrol!
After all who can resist a new stamp set!!! I can’t wait to try out this new set it’s definitely a must have so I was thrilled when I won it!!!
I enjoyed spending time with my fellow team mate JoAnn who joined me in Tampa
And the SINKS team members, my extended family.
It was a great day together and while I had lot of fun sharing, laughing and stamping together, getting the first peek at the upcoming Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration brochure was the high light! (I can’t wait to share a sneak peek with you with my Prize Patrol set during the Coffee & Cards Buffet in December! Watch for more information coming your way soon!!!)
After the great day we had together we continued the fun with dinner at the Spaghetti Warehouse.
What fun, spending time with new and old friends and sharing our favorite moments of the day’s presentation and training.
Oops…. I almost forgot to share with you some of the fun pillow gifts I made for my roommate.
With all that sharing we do I love to jot notes down since I can never remember it all – so I made a notepad set with pen and binder clip for holding all those goodies together
I used the Project Life Remember This stamp set (135786) since I love this sentiment and of course the Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper (138187) and Pacific Point 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon (138427).
We receive a special event bag to hold all our goodies in so a name tag is always helpful to identify ours from the rest! After all 398 of the same bags in one place….well you get the idea.
And for my fellow Team members and travel companion I made this cute little domed box.
It held some chocolate, pen, binder clip and of course flags so we could mark all those wonderful must have stamp sets!
The next day was an early morning wake up and off to the airport to head home –
Of course, I made sure I had my new catties on the plane with me – ready to settle in and dream! I think this is the best Occasions and Sale-a-bration yet!
Oh my gosh, can you believe all these goodies I brought home with me!!! Stampin’ Up! pampers us at these events. I LOVE being a Demonstrator – and I love the fact that I get to order and preview items before they go live!
If this sounds like something you would enjoy now is a wonderful time to become a demonstrator.
