Hey folks! I thought I would tie up this week with a cute little Make and Take card that I made (well, I started it…) at a recent Stampin’ Up! OnStage event. I LOVE attending Stampin’ Up! organised events, we always go home with heaps of inspiration, new products and new friends! BUT Stampin’ Up! events are exclusively available to demonstrators… so, you know what you need to do? Join my team and make sure you don’t miss the next one!
At Stampin’ Up! events there in always a Make and Take, also we have creative projects at team events too! They provide a fab packet with all the goodies that you need to make the card; the card base, Designer Series paper etc. and then there is a big box on the table with all the stamps, ink, punches, ribbons and bits in. We always have great fun sharing out the box, and playing “who’s got the sentiment stamp” (because the stamps always seem to get lost amongst all the sweeties!)
It’s a great time to join Stampin’ Up! with a new catalogue Pre-Order due to start on 1st August and the Extra Extra promotion giving you even more in your Starter Kit! I would LOVE to welcome you to the team.

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!

I thought I had already shared this card, I can’t believe its been sat, neglected on my computer for weeks!
About a month ago, Stampin’ Up! challenged me to book two parties as part of Sale-a-bration. Well, Sale-a-bration is now over, but I did have two parties in March, and this the card we made.
One of my parties had never stamped before, and this card was perfect. I love a simple card, but this one has a little bit of wow with the stamped and punch flower. I even shared my secret for straight stamping: lie your stamp rubber side down on your grid paper, ensuring that the straight edge of the stamp is in line with one of the lines – position your clear block over the top, lining the bottom edge up with one of the grid lines, and push onto the stamp. Now, when you line the bottom edge of you block up with the bottom edge of your paper, your stamp is straight!
