Heartfelt treats and a sneak peek! - #GDP134


Last weekend I attended Stampin' Up!'s© local conference, On Stage, in Red Deer, Alberta. I love that Stampin' Up! brings the fun of conventions to our local areas. It makes for an affordable little weekend away to see my Stampin' demonstrator friends, stamp together, experience the exciting announcements from Stampin' Up! and see all of the new products first hand!

This event marked the 30th Anniversary of Stampin' Up!. Friday night was an 80's theme party night for top achieving demonstrators. We enjoyed a delicious dinner together and were the first to receive the new 2018-2019 catalogue! We had an intimate session discussing the changes coming up (there are some exciting ones) and got to take some of the new products home! 

Dale is our Canadian Stampin' Up! Manager (featured here).

Saturday was an early start and a full day of Stampin'! I had 7 of my Dolce Stampers demonstrator team attend! This treat box is what I created for each of them ... 

These bright bold colors were inspired by the 80's theme of the weekend. I am so happy to say that these Acetate Card Boxes are carrying over to the new catalgoue. Did you know that you can emboss them with an embossing folder and the Big Shot? Look closely here and you can see that I used the Polka Dot Basics Folder (this will carry over too!).

The hearts were cut with the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits and Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock and Berry Burst Cardstock ... again, all carry over items.

The ribbon and designer series paper will retire come May 31st, 2018. In general, all designer series papers retire each catalogue transition. Designer series paper offer new color combinations, new trends and they coordinate with new stamp sets ... all making them an exciting change each product launch.

Just a portion of the Dolce Stampers Demonstrator team!

These treat containers are inspired by the
Global Design Project challenge this week - #GDP134

Here are a few more highlights from the event!

Each Stampin' Up!event has "the bag".
Inside the bag was a new stamp set and a marque light board.
We NEED these bags for all of the projects that we make and, of course,
for all of the free product giveaways!
The tables are always beautiful!
Stampin' Up! does not miss a detail ... the grid paper, the stickers on the butterflies!
The bin in the center of the table is packed with new products that got to play with!
At the end of the event, we divvy up the products and everyone gets to take them home!
Afternoon snack - 30th anniversary cupcakes!
Last week I posted a few announcements from the On Stage event. Check out these blog posts:

Thank-you for visiting! Have a creative day!
