Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip Achiever's Demonstrator Blog Hop - Sneak Peek

It's Stampin' Up! Incentive Achiever Blog Hop time again so join on a journey of all things wonderful as a demo and attending our recent regional Stampin' Up! events.  As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator you are able to attend Stampin' Up! events where you are one of the first to see new catalogues and products and share a fun time with other demonstrators from your country and sometimes from other countries too when there is an event called Onstage Live in your market. Of course you can choose to attend any event worldwide so could make it your ambition to travel the Stampin' Up! globe and see lots of countries, cities and of course fellow demonstrators.

Recently I went to the UK local event held at Telford.  It was a fab weekend as hubby and son came along too and they were able to attend The Telford Museums courtesy of Tesco vouchers.  It kept them entertained whilst I went to centre stage, an event for senior managers and then the following day to the main event where we were given a copy of the new 2018 - 2019 Annual catalogue. Oh boy are you in for a treat..... that's all I'll say for now. However I can share that this fabulous stamp set is staying in the new catalogue.  I used it to make some of my swaps that I traded for ideas with other demos.

I love that it all fits around family life too and that we got to stay in a beautiful place, eat good food and also my boys were entertained at The Ironbridge Museum.

Not Ironbridge but a mini version near the pub!

At Onstage we also get to play with new products in the form of Make and Takes. I'm always too busy talking and catching up with friends so I gathered together the pieces needed and decided to make my own versions at home. This is what I've done with the leafy laser cut piece I received. I've teamed it with some current and you might spy a sneak peek of a new stamp set being launched very soon.

The laser cut piece is delicate and so I decided to attach it to my card by overlaying a piece of vellum onto it before machine stitching both to the base card. The laser cut piece is held in place by the vellum.  It's so so pretty.  Our colour collections are changing too which is why you may have noticed many on the retiring list.  However it's time for some returning favourites like Mossy Meadow which you can just spy as a scallop circle matt layer and some awesome new colours for Stampin' Up! 


So you can see why I love my life as a demonstrator being able to share what I love about it with you.   It's always fun meeting up with other demonstrators to share swaps and tips and get an early sight and possession of the new Stampin Up catalogues.  One of the best things about these events is connecting with my team as we don't all live down the road from each other.

This is Telford with some of the team and some were in Utrecht in The Netherlands. 

Enjoy the hop lovely visitors and remember to check out the retiring list of products that will no longer be available at the end of May or sooner if they sell out.  Your wish list needs checking.....

Thanks for stopping by and see you again soon.
