   My first Onstage this past month was phenominal!!! Stampin’ Up! has two Demonstrator events a year, one is a 3-day event…in November, the other is a 1-day event in April. They hold events in several countries simultaneously. I just can’t express how much fun it is!! There were tons of card samples on display boards and in display cases…I took a ton of pictures! We spent probably a quarter of the time watching demonstrations of the new products coming out in January…more on the upcoming deals later…another quarter of the time on Awards…Stampin’ Up! loves to acknowledge achievement!! Then a quarter of the time on business training and the last quarter of time…you guessed it, we stamped with the new products…Oh, and did I mention Prize Patrol??? Yep, we all took home three new catalog stamp sets!!!….Best. Time. Ever.

   I got to meet alot of the Demonstrators that I’ve met online and they were all just like I thought they would be, amazing women and they all love to stamp like me! If you ever want to have a fun “job”/ business or just want to get whatever you want from the SU! catalogs, I recommend joining!! I’d love to have you on my team!! Just go to my SU! website here, and click JOIN NOW! More about joining below…

    So back to the new products that we got to play with..AND..order..yep, if you go to Onstage you get to order some of the products even before the Demonstrator preorder!!  So much fabulousness about Onstage!! The Occasions Catalog and the always much anticipated catalog of free items…yes, I said FREE, were given to Demonstrators at Onstage! Those new to Stampin’ Up! may not know this but from January 3 to March 31st SU! has a Sale-A-Bration(SAB)! For every $50 you spend, you get to pick out a SAB item for FREE, there are stamp sets and other items to choose from.  This year there are some additional surprises you can expect!

    SAB is an excellent time for Demonstrators and Hostesses to get more FREE products…over and above the normal Hostess rewards and over and above the FREE SAB items!! If you host a party for $250, you get an ADDITIONAL $25 in FREE products!! If you join SU! and buy the Starter Kit you get the normal $125 worth of product for $99…NO S&H…you also get ANY two stamp sets!! What??? SUCH A GREAT DEAL!!

    Finally, my swaps, Demonstrators can participate in Card Swaps at
Onstage, if they’d like. It is really fun, everyone just walks around swapping cards with one another. The cards shown above were the cards I swapped.  I just LOVE This Little Piggy!!

Here’s how I made the clouds:
