“Love it. Live it. Share it.”
Yesterday I shared some photos of some of the wonderful people I met at On Stage Live in Orlando last week. I have a few more photos today. The picture above shows half of the Main Stage room where we met for general sessions. So much excitement filled that room every time we got together!
One of the things that Stampin’ Up! did for us at OnStage Live was to host a “Meet and Greet” for stampers in the Northeast. We met on Friday afternoon in a big conference room, and were then divided up by states. These are some of the stampers we met that were there from Maine. I had only met one of them before this, so it was nice to make some more new friends. We’ll have to have a “Maine event” and get together again!
Stampin’ Up! really spoiled us with gifts at this convention. When we registered on Wednesday we were given this beautiful box which was filled with everything pictured here, along with our nametag and a letter telling us if we were to go up on stage for recognition. I received my 5 year Anniversary Pin in March and was supposed to go on stage, but I decided not to. Now I wish I had! : )
Here’s our nametag that was in the box, and the stamp set that I won for Prize Patrol. Throughout the convention, different numbers come up on the jumbotron screens (after a drum roll), and whoever has that number, gets a great prize! This “Part of My Story” stamp set will be coming in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog in January.
These are some of the other prizes we received…more stamp sets, another great bag, a tool case and a pack of gingham paper!
I had the best roommate! We had never met before the trip, but she was so great, and she was a pro at getting those Uber drivers!!! She gave me all these sweet treats! Thank you Dawn A., and thanks for being such a wonderful traveling companion!
During the lunch break the first two days of convention there was a big “suitcase” of stamping supplies in the middle of our lunch tables. We made two projects the first day, and two the second. We had alot of fun and met lots of new friends! Our first project was made with the new “Needlepoint Nook” collection coming in the January 2019 Occasions Catalog…
The second project (I haven’t folded up the pizza box yet), was made with a new collection coming called “Classic Garage”…
On the second day we made this beautiful card from the new collection coming called “Happiness Blooms”…
And last but not least, we made this gorgeous Valentine card with the new “All My Love” collection that will also be coming out in the new Occasions Catalog.
We just had so much fun, met so many wonderful people, learned new tips for our businesses and made memories to last a lifetime. I’m so glad I went, and I’m glad to be home again with my family and my cat, “Sr. B.!” The next event is in April, and the closest On Stage Locals to us in Maine will be Atlantic City, New Jersey, or Quebec, Canada. If anyone is going, please comment and let me know!!! Stamping Peace, xo Dawn
