Beginning last night, Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators have been glued to their tablets, laptops, or computers soaking in all of the wonderful card ideas, demos, and speakers on how to make our hobby that much more fun! Yesterday was the first night of OnStage@Home! The Opening Recognition Event, featuring Pat Benatar for the opening entertainment, was SO COOL! It was like having her right there next to me! The best part of the night was when yours truly got to see HER name scroll on the screen with other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators! I was so excited! My very first milestone with Stampin’ Up!
I also got this nifty little badge to use on social media and here on my blog to show off my achievement. Some day maybe I’ll have one of the gold badges, but baby steps are perfect for me!
When we registered for OnStage@Home we had the option to buy the swag bag. I was lucky enough to have enough Flex Points to get it for FREE! In the swag bag we received a beautiful Stampin’ Up! exclusive bag, notebooks (to take notes in during the convention), stickers, an awesome rainbow pen, collector trading pins, exclusive Grid Paper, and the Enjoy the Moment stamp set that will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog!
As OnStage@Home got closer, we were given the option to preorder the Dragonfly Garden Bundle to use during the Stamp & Share Experience. This set will also be included in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Prior to the event, we were given a list of materials to prep so we could stamp along just as if we were at an actual OnStage convention in person! We made the three cards at the top of the following picture. Then, during my breaks I made an alternative sample using my favorite Snowflake Splendor Suite.
In a later demonstration we were shown how to make step-it-up cards using the swag bag stamp set, Enjoy the Moment.. The bottom right card is the first step to the three card series. I didn’t have the exactly supplies on hand, so I used what I had. Everything is so versatile with Stampin’ Up! Maybe tomorrow, during breaks and meetings, I can make two more steps. This step was the beginner card and next I will do the casual (intermediate) card and finally the avid card.
Tomorrow I have a full day of General Session Stamping and Break Out Sessions. I can’t wait to show you everything I create!
