Stampin' Up! Onstage November 2018 #stampinup30

Today I'm sharing more pictures from my lovely weekend at OnStage in Birmingham! I was lucky enough to be joined by some of my team too, and of course the 500 plus other Demonstrators from all over the UK! it was a big event that's for sure, the atmosphere was amazing, and you leave full of ideas and inspirations plus lots of free goodies from Stampin' Up! see more of that below!

Here we are posing against the stage props! haha

Peek - a - boo!!

for Saturdays event we each had matching team t-shirts saying 'Do More of what you Love'

The tables were all laid out lovely with mini 30's (I got to bring the one on our table home) and some black and white pics of Shelli the Co-founder, inside the sealed boxes was NEW product for us to play with!

and lastly heres all the goodies I came home with! wow Stampin' Up! really do spoil us at these events I came home with 5 brand new Stamp sets coming in the new Spring/Summer catalogues and from the Sale a Bration promotion starting in Januray 2019.

I was amazed to find out a week prior to OnStage that I was in
Stampin' Up!s UK's top 50 demonstrators!
to say I was gobsmacked and speechless is an understatement! I came in at '21' must be a family lucky number as my sons go kart number is 21 too!

Its crazy to think when I joined almost 7 years ago it was purely to buy Stampin' Up! products at a discount, I never imagined I'd come this far, and make the amazing friendships I have, I have a team of amazing Demonstrators spotted all over the UK and have people like you following by blog, Crafters coming to my classes and customers purchasing their Stampin' Up! products through me - its blows my mind, But I'm so so grateful to everyone as without my team, customers and followers none of this is possible! so  a huge Thank you to YOU.

Here is my card:

I've created my own DSP / background using the Limited time Stamps Snow Is Glistening, 
The Snow is Glistening stamp set is only available during November or While stocks last!

I've stamped the pretty snowflakes  in Crumb Cake, Basic Grey and Soft Suede, I randomly stamped until I was happy! 

I have then die Cut the 'Merry' greeting three times using the Merry Christmas Thinlit dies, I adhered them on top of one another to create a chunkier sentiment, before adhering my sentiment I've added a bow wrapped round using the gorgeous Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.

I added some sparkly! die cut snowflakes from the Snowfall Thinlits Die Collection also limited availability these dies are exclusive to November or while stocks last!

Stampin' Up! On Stage Swaps Spirited Snowman

When we attend Stampin' Up! events we have the option of taking swaps with us, these swaps can be a card front of something 3D, anything really as long as weve made it and it includes current product, I choose to make a card front to swap with fellow demonstrators!

Here is my card using the Spirited Snowman Stamp set, I think my swap basically includes all my favourite Stampin' Up! products from the Autumn and Winter catalogue! but I knew this way I wouldn't get bored!

The background uses the Beauitful Blizzard Stamp set stamped in Blamy Blue ink, I then distressed the edges with crumb cake ink, 

The embossed layer used the Corrugated Dynamis embossing folder which I then tore the top and bottom edges off, again for a oldy vintage look!

I loved the sentiment and knew it was perfect to swap with my fellow demonstrators, as we all have a great 'stamping' friendship! I've heat embossed my sentiment with gold embossing powder, I added a knot of Whisper White Polka dot ribbon on to the banner - because Im addicted to the ribbon! 

My snowman was coloured using the Stampin Blends alcohol markers,
(see below for colours used)

I made 50! yes 50 of these card fronts, It doesn't fase me know, I cut everything on a converyor belt and assemble in the same way, I sat and coloured the snowmen while watching tv over a few nights so not that bad when you love colouring!

I received 50 swaps back with lots of ideas and inspiration, I will share these with you via my Facebook page during a love video!

Like anything you've seen today, make a note of it and then contact you demonstrator to order, If you don't already have a demonstrator or are looking for a demonstrator I would love to help you, 

You can have your order shipped to your chosen address either here in the UK or Germany, The Netherlands, France or Austria

Stampin' Up! On Stage Team Gifts

Friday and Saturday I spent the day in Birmingham with my team at our Stampin' Up! Demonstrator event On Stage, these events are amazing, we get spoilt with gifts, prizes and 
seeing brand new products ahead of time!

This time was no different as Stampin' Up! are celebrating 30 years, we got to see the new Spring / Summer Catalogue plus the exciting new Sale-a-Bration promotion..

At events like this I like to spoil my team and this year I gave each of the girls in my team a 
Monogramed tote bag with their initial, plus some goodies inside!

Inside their bags was a notebook as we take lots of notes at these events, a set of pencils, a pen which was engraved with 'Do More of What you Love' to match are t-shirts (more of that to come later in the week!)
Chocolate couldn't not include it could I!!, plus a lovely pin badge which says I love Crafting (see Below)

I came across the little pin badges and knew straight away these were perfect to give the girls, they could pop them on their Stampin' Up! apron or anywhere they fancy!

I made the little boxes to hold the pin, and finished each off with the Petal Promenade DSP and the Stampin' Up! 30 year Logo as a keepsake for them

Aren't the pins gorgeous I treated myself to one too! and I have in on my SU apron!

Do come back later this week as I will be sharing my Swaps, plus more piccies!

Thank you so much for coming by today, til next time happy craftin'
