This was my first Stampin' Up! Onstage and it was nothing short of amazing! Card swapping, make-n-takes, Demonstrator recognition, business training, new product demonstrations, and my personal favorite, prize patrol! It was truly an "inspiration overload" kind of day.

We received a tote bag that contained our name badge, pens, and a free stamp set! Throughout the day, every participate won prizes and we even got to choose from the materials used for the make-n-takes. Can you guess what I chose? There's a picture of me winning Prize Patrol somewhere on a friend's camera. I will post it as soon as I receive it.  Here's a picture of everything I came home with minus 51 swap cards:

Isn't that amazing? And yes, that's a sneak peek of some new products! I'll be showing you more sneak peeks within the next few weeks.

Now for the swaps! This was my first time swapping and I never realized how much fun it was!
Here's just part of the Swap Line-Up (photo courtesy of Tinie Bilo):

I'm not going to post all 51 totally amazing cards (trust me, it was very difficult to choose), but the following are my personal favorites. I've listed the Demonstrator's name under each picture:

Imogene Thomas

Cindy Brumbaugh

Sandy Mitchell

Billie Moan

Pat Brown

Sarah Julius

Sharon Walker

Linda Callahan

Tricia Chuba

Unnamed (if you know who belongs to this card, please let me know!)

Karen Zaring Browning

Kim Coulter

Aren't these some awesome cards? Which one(s) are your favorites?

The absolute most exciting part of the day was receiving the Spring Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Catalog, which starts January 4, 2017. I can't wait to show you these great new products.

Yesterday, my friends and fellow Demonstrators came over to see all the swap cards and goodies. Since it was my birthday on Friday, Glenda Herring baked this cake for me! Isn't it beautiful? It was absolutely delicious! Thank you, Glenda, for making me feel so special!

Stay tuned for Thursday's post with directions for making the 3D Christmas Apron Box.

Happy Stamping!

  1. This is a gorgeous place, and I won't soon forget it. Attended an event here sponsored by the company. The reception hour was held in one of the rooms next to the venues in NYC. I loved their buttery mashed sweet potato.
