Love It-Live It-Share It–OnStage 2018 Orlando Recap!

Hello and welcome to today’s blog! I am sharing with you my experience from attending OnStage in Orlando, which was Ahhh-maaaay-zing! This was not my first Onstage, but it was my first OnStage Live!, and what better way to spend three amazing days than with over 6,000 people who love to create with Stampin’ Up! Not only was it awesome to catch up with some old friends from Team Stamp It, but meeting some amazing new friends from the team! This trip especially meant a lot to me since I was able to share this experience with not just my downline, but my dearest and best friend, Laura. We became friends over 20 years ago and even when time and distance has separated us, we always pick up right where we left off. So when I came home from OnStage Hartford in April and shared my experience with her (and my experience from Onstage Richmond last year), she couldn’t wait to make this a “girls trip” and head on down to Orlando! Here’s a couple pictures of us from Orlando:

Our first morning, going on 2 hours of sleep!
Our final day!

Our day’s started bright and early (between 4:00-4:30am) so we could join our other Team Stamp It members at the doors to get in and get enough seats so those of us that wanted to could sit together. We got to see lots of new and amazing products from the upcoming Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs, create with some make and takes, win some of the new products from Prize Patrol, receive our own copy of the new catalogs, and see how Stampin’ Up! has changed and grown over the last 30 years. 

View from the door, so many, many, many more people!

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
