Stampin' Up! OnStage Hartford

This past weekend demonstrators from around the world gathered at local conference venues for Stampin' Up's semi-annual OnStage event.  The day includes swaps, display boards, new catalog and products, and presentations.  And fun with fellow demonstrators!  This time around we got a preview of the new annual catalog (insert super excited screaming demonstrators here)!!

I attended the Hartford, CT event with my downline and fellow demonstrator friends.  Here are the little goodies I brought as gifts.

I combined several Paper Pumpkin kits with some current items to put together an OnStage survival kit.  I thought the burlap bags from the September 2014 Paper Pumkin Boo-tiful Bags would make a nice "coffee and chocolate-themed" goodie bag.

Stamps: Jar of Love; Paper: Cucumber Crush, Whisper White, Festive Birthday DSP, Naturally Eclectic DSP; Ink: Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky, Night of Navy, Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark; Accessories: Sept 2014 Paper Pumpkin Boo-tiful Bags, July 2015 Paper Pumpkin Thanks a Latte, Sept 2016 Paper Pumpkin Something Good to Eat, Linen Thread, White Embossing Powder, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, Everyday Jars Framelits, Big Shot, Dimensionals.

And, as time allowed, I created several little 3-D favors (Ghiradelli candies) to hand out.

Stamps: Jar of Love, Colorful Seasons; Paper: Berry Burst, Calypso Coral, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Naturally Eclectic DSP, Watercolor Paper; Ink: Berry Burst, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky, Night of Navy, Memento Tuxedo Black; Accessories: Very Vanilla Baker's Twine, Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, Watercolor Brush, Everyday Jars Framelits, Seasonal Layers Thinlits, Big Shot.

I had such a fabulous time sitting with my downline and friends! Thank you for sharing the day with me.

Look at all the fun stuff I came home with!  Stampin' Up events are a blast, and you get so many exciting goodies!  Here's some of what you get at check in (or shortly thereafter).  The catalog being most important!

And at the end of the day you leave with this much stuff!

Notice how the Night of Navy, Calypso Coral, and Pool Party flowers carry through the favors, table setting, and decor?  Can't wait to start stamping with my new supplies.

I don't have a graphic of the new In Colors yet, but I can tell you the names are Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, Call Me Clover, and Blueberry Bushel.

Want to see some make & takes with new product?  Let me share those with you.

This is from the Share What You Love Suite, featuring Grapefruit Grove & Mint Macaron (returning!!).  The stamp set is called Love What You Do, and there will be an early release of bundles available from this suite on May 1.

This card features the set from the Nature's Poem Suite called Rooted in Nature (which I got to take home) and In Color Grapefruit Grove.

From the Delightfully Detailed Suite, this card highlights pre-printed watercolored note cards and Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.

Any Celtic fans out there?  This is the new Graceful Glass Suite, including designer printed vellum and set Painted Glass.  Very fun to use the stained glass technique by coloring with Stampin' Blends markers.  The new In Colors here are Lovely Lipstick & Pineapple Punch (hint: new Blends colors coming!).

Hope you enjoyed the first peek of the new annual catalog products!
