Sydney Stampin Up OnStage Local Recap - Part 2 with lots of sneak peeks from the 2016 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.
Following on from Part 1, here is what we got up to on the main day of the Stampin' Up! OnStage2016 demonstrator training event in Sydney at the Hilton Hotel. I had over 30 of my team girls there and it was lovely to sit together and share this great event with them.
I had picked up my bag the night before, which contained a stamp set, and some other goodies, we had already been posted out name tags and ribbons before the event.
I had some 'first time attending the events' girls this time so I made sure I was downstairs nice and early to welcome them. By all accounts they had lots of fun.
We sit at round tables at these events as we do stamping too. Our host for the Sydney event was Rich Judkins, the Stampin' Up! President who flew in from Salt lake City. He was a fun host that's for sure. The tables were set up all waiting for us (no peeking sign on the make and take ox, ha ha).
It was very exciting to receive the brand new 2016 Annual Catalogue as the very first item on the agenda!
We then had lots of fabulous presentations showing us new products with tips and creative ways to use them. These presentations are amazing and such a valuable tool for demonstrators to help build our own skills and get to know the new products. There is also hands on stamping where we got to play with new products (at this stage I often spend time helping new team members, so these two samples are actually my lovely friend Sharon Davern's.
We did three make and takes altogether and also had a chance to stamp and punch the new 2016 -18 In Colours!
As it was the ten year Anniversary of Stampin' Up!, we had these cute little cupcakes to celebrate. I love the little cupcake toppers and t's a fave memento from the event and my nearly 10 years as a demonstrator.
Let's not forget FREE STAMPS! In addition to the Mixed Borders stamp set we received in our bad at check in, we got another stamp set as an all attendee give away (Sitting Here stamp set) and I won the Baby Bear stamp set in prize patrol - yeah!
One of the most exciting parts of the event though, was the opportunity to see, touch and wow over completely new products coming to you in June! Are you ready for some sneak peeks?
This is just a teeny tiny sample of the exciting things coming when the new catalogue goes live on June 1st. Don't wait until then to get excited. There are three ways you can join in the fun right now!
Hope you enjoyed today's recap post - it was so fun to be there. I'll be posting lots more sneak peeks over the coming months, so if you don't want to miss a thing, subscribe to my blog posts by email HERE. It's free and easy!
