Last week I attended Stampin’ Up!® OnStage (Live) in Orlando, Florida. OnStage used to be called Convention. There is one Live OnStage somewhere in the world and Local OnStage for other countries. It is the 30th anniversary of Stampin’ Up!® so it was larger than most with 6,000 Demonstrators from all around the world. You would think that 6,000 of anyone in one place would be overwhelming but Stampin’ Up! did a great job of moving people quickly and efficiently so you would never know there were that many people there.
Wednesday was check in day where you got a nice canvas bag with some goodies in it. There was a stamp set from the Occasions Catalog that begins in January, some pens, information, and other things we needed. Then Wednesday afternoon Stampin’ Up! treated Demonstrators who were at a certain level of sales and recruits to a day at Epcot. This was the first time I was eligible to attend so I was pretty excited. Rob went with me and we had a great day. At the end of the day we all met in one section of Epcot where we received copies of the Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogs, a Bone Folder and another free stamp set. They also told us some information about the new stamps they are coming out with called Cling Stamps. They are no longer going to offer stamps in wood mount. There will only be Photopolymer and Cling. Let me tell you, those Cling stamps really cling to the block! You are going to love them! I’ll have more information on them later on.
Here is the stamp set that everyone in attendance received:
Thursday, Friday and Saturday were full of fun, entertainment, training and more free stuff. I think I ended up with 5 or 6 new stamp sets, some Designer Series Paper and other goodies. The stamps and DSP are all in the upcoming Catalogs.
Of course, the best part of OnStage is seeing and meeting new friends. Char (one of my Downline) and Pam (one of Char’s Downline) were there for the first time and my BFF, Buffy came too. I finally got to meet Audrey, who is a fellow Demonstrator from the West Coast, the nicest person and a great stamper (we have been Facebook friends for a long time). Diana Gibbs, who is my Ever Mentor went to dinner with Rob and me one night. She is very sweet and is now an Uber expert! All of us had a blast together.
Remember, you can only attend OnStage if you are a Demonstrator. Stampin’ Up! is going to have an awesome deal if you join during Sale-a-bration in January. For $135 you will be able to choose $225 worth of products OR for $175 you will get $225 worth of products plus this amazing tote!
