Stampin’ Up! volunteering fun & CentreStage excitement!

As I said yesterday I’m here to tell you all about the AMAZING time I had at OnStage in Telford. I love the Stampin’ Up! events and there’s always a huge build up of excitement over them because you can guarantee you’ll see some brand new products coming later in the year. (AND I DID!! :D)

But also the thing that’s even more exciting than that is that I get to meet up and spend time with my wonderful team, members of the Strawberry Stampers. This time was especially wonderful because I was there with Lynne Williams who is in my team, she saw the photographs of the April 2016 OnStage event and signed up straight away so she could get her ticket to the November 2016 OnStage.

OnStage events are held around the world, in all Stampin’ Up! markets. One location hold the LIVE event, this time it was Brisbane and the other locations in Europe and North America gather to the local event to watch the recordings from Brisbane and live demonstrators up on stage.

The next OnStage is April 2017, where Europe will be holding the LIVE event in The Netherlands. WOW! I simply cannot wait to spend time over there in yet another country I’ve been to during my Stampin’ Up! career because of them. If you’d like to experience all of this with me and my Strawberry Stampers you really can, all you need to do is join our lovely team with the purchase of a Starter Kit, then it’s the cost of ordering your ticket, travel and accommodation. It’s a wonderful crafting holiday! 😀

So on the Friday morning Tom and I volunteered to lend a hand setting up the OnStage room, we packed 70 tubs of crafting supplies along with the other volunteers. We got to touch and feel some of the new supplies – Eeek! But there was no time what so ever to get excited over them, we had at least 15 different products per box to put in correctly for the make and takes the following day. We all did a super job getting that done.

After my Craft Afternoon for 35 demonstrators in the afternoon (which you can read about here), I had a quick change to go back over to the venue for an evening with my follow Stampin’ Up! Leaders, called CentreStage. Centre Stage is for levels Silver Elite and above, which is me! I think there were roughly 30-35 leaders in total. Here’s me snapping my first selfie of the weekend with the Centre Stage welcoming sign at the top of the stairs.

The evening was a chance to get together with our fellow leaders and listen to some quality business training from our Regional Manager Paula Gorry and also Bonnie Thurber. We were served a delicious meal which you can see in the photo and then for dessert we had crumble. What a perfect British dessert to end a perfect evening.

Lastly I have a photo that ended that night, I asked Bonnie if she’d mind joining us team photo so we can send it to our team manager Michelle who unfortunately for us wasn’t there, she was spending her time over at OnStage in The Netherlands. You will have seen Bonnie on the Stampin’ Up! product presentation videos, she’s so lovely and such a bubbly person.
