Hello lovelies! I hope you are all well? I have just returned from Orlando, Florida where I was fortunate to attend Stampin' Up!'s Onstage Live Convention. And it was their 30th Anniversary, so it was extra special. What made it extra extra special for me was all the lovely stampers I met from all over the world and how kind many of them were!
People came from Germany, France, United Kingdom, Canada, Japan, USA, New Zealand, Australia (of course!) and other parts of the world.
I wanted to quickly show you what we all received in our goodie bags and other gifts and prizes throughout the 3 days we were there.
The day before the convention started, we were able to collect our goodie bag, and it came in this beautiful box!
(oh and I'm wearing my new Stampin' Up!© Hoodie that I was able to pre order when I registered for the convention, so I picked that up at the same time as my goodie bag.)
My Goodie bag had a new stampset, 3 pens, 3 note books, a lanyard, my Prize Patrol badge and the lovely reversible bag itself!
Now every day most of us took this bag to the convention centre, and it was fun to spot the Stampin'Up!® Demonstrator heading their way over there from different hotels, walking along the street, jumping in and out of Ubars - you could tell because of their bag! Did I mention there were about 6,000 peeps? ...and this conference centre is the second largest in the USA!! It was huge! Staff were using Segways to get around, and to tell you the truth, I sometimes wished I had one!
During the 3 days, we were entertained by Sarah and Shelly who were live onstage along with some other very funny and talented presenters. They showed us new products and gave us ideas what we could do with them and showed some beautiful projects that they had made.
We were given the Occasions Catalogue along with the exciting Sale-A-Bration Catalogue on the first day and that's when it became really exciting. Also, as an extra perk for attending Onstage, everyone has the opportunity to purchase chosen products super early before any one else, we could start ordering on the day we received our catalogue. That meant that for some, their order would have arrived at their door before they even returned home!
The new 2019 Catalogues...want one? Contact me and it's yours!
Everyone receiving one of the prize patrols!
We would split into three groups for lunch (yes, this is only a third of us pictured!) And after lunch we had the opportunity to make some cards using some of the new Stamp sets and other products.
What it was like at the mainstage.
I have put together a short 7 minute video of all the gifts and new products from the new catalogues that I was fortunate to receive during the convention.
It was an awesome experience and I was so grateful that I was able to go. Thank you Stampin' Up! © for such a memorable time and for all the hard work put into the 3 days, and loves and hugs to my husband who traveled with me and shared a lovely holiday in the US with me!
Well that's all for now, thanks for visiting.
