Yesterday I shared the Make and Takes from this years Stampin’ Up! OnStage April event in Telford. OnStage is an exclusive Demonstrator event that is held twice each year, in April and November, and we get to see new goodies from upcoming catalogues and releases as well as stamping and getting to see our Stampin’ friends too. I LOVE going to Stampin’ Up! events, whether they are corportate organised (like OnStage) or team events, they are always lots of fun!
I thought I would share a bit of a round up of the day with you today, so you can see why these events are so great to attend, and maybe why you want to become a Demonstrator and be able to go to the next one in Dortmund, Germany! Actually, the next OnStage for us in Europe is a fabulous 3 day Live event, so its’ even bigger!
There are several perks of attending OnStage; getting to see new products is just a very small part of the day.
OnStage days usually start pretty early, and once you’ve registered and received your goody bag (which contains a fun gift, new stamp set, pens, and Prize Patrol badge) there is time to find a seat and share create ideas with fellow demonstrators. While this time I didn’t swap any projects (just too much going on with finishing work and baby!) the team did spoil me with a fair number of beautiful swap projects!
As well as seeing the new catalogue, Demonstrators get to hear fun news from the Stampin’ Up! corporate team, as well as creative ideas from fellow demonstrators who have been lucky enough to get sent some of the new stamps to try!
I love this part of the day, getting to see what other people have made with new stuff is just so fun! I particularly loved THIS card from Julie Kettlewell, and THESE made by one of my Stampin’ Sisters Helzie Slimm.
Then there are the product boards… with some fabulous sneaky peaks of new goodies! I cannot wait to get my hands on that foil paper in the Noble Peacock Suite (my photograph has not done that justice at all!) and the updated prints on the Colour Families Designer Series Papers too!
In addition to all the news and Make and Takes, Demonstrators in attendance are also treated to fabulous Prize Patrols; brand new stamp sets given away throughout the day, as well as the pick of the Make and Takes box at the end! I came away with 3 brand new stamp sets, a pack of some brand new Designer Series Paper, Stampin’ Blends and a couple of ink pads too!
I have to say though that these days are about more than just the products for me. It’s about getting some Me time and seeing my Stampin’ Friends! We always have a good giggle!
