So Stampin’ Up! had the international meeting in Brisbane earlier this month and it was a lot of fun. Every 6 months there is one 3 day OnStage Live event which rotates between North America, Europe & the South Pacific and then the other regions who don’t host the 3 day event get a one day event called OnStage Local. This was the first Live event for the South Pacific and also coincided with the South Pacific 10th anniversary.
If you like the above black and gold polka dot pop up rubbish bins, they are part of the South Pacific 10th anniversary celebrations and are available whilst stocks last for $10 each order code 145173 or you can get one for FREE from me by placing an order of over $100 (whilst stocks last).
One of the highlights of any Stampin’ Up! event is catching up with old friends and making new ones, it’s fantastic being able to hang out with people who all ‘get’ craft! I was fortunate enough this time to have 3 others from my team join me at the event.
It was also fun to catch up with staff from the Head Office in North America.Below is a photograph taken at the CentreStage dinner with CEO of the company Sara Douglas.
One of the ways that we initiate conversations with demonstrators we don’t know and also to share ideas is to make little stamped swap items. Sue from my team made 100 of these cute little koala treats which went down very well with people. The koala is made from the Fox Builder punch.
Of course the company spoiled us with lots of amazing gifts including bags. stamp sets, accessories, treats, food, make & takes and more!
This event I was very fortunate to be asked to design some items with new stamps & framelits for the display boards to help inspire others. I will blog those items soon.
These were made using new ribbon, designer series paper and stamps that will be available in the new Occasions catalogue in January. Of course I couldn’t let them have naked envelopes either as that would just be too boring for the mail person delivering them!
