Onstage Local and Swaps

I've just returned from a fantastic weekend of fun and inspiration at Stampin' Up's Onstage Local event in Solihull. I flew over to Birmingham on Friday morning to spend time with the rest of my team at an event hosted by my up-line Michelle. We had a yummy afternoon tea and spent the afternoon catching up and crafting.



 After that it was time for a quick change and we were straight off to Stampin' Up's leader event - Centrestage. At registration we were given our bags and we got our first look at the new Spring/ Summer catalogue and Sale-a-bration brochure, you're going to love all the new items coming soon!! We were able to browse the display boards and see the display items made with the new products. I can't show you anything just yet, but will share soon.
We had a short business presentation then enjoyed a delicious dinner. I loved the table decorations, Stampin' Up always go the extra mile to make their events memorable for their demonstrators.
I also received a free stamp set from the new catalogue in my bag and a Stampin' Up logo t-shirt featuring a design from the upcoming catalogue.
 
These were my swaps, I thought the flower from the Remarkable You set resembled a poinsettia which gave me the inspiration for my design.
I stamped the image onto some Merry Music paper with black Memento ink and coloured it with my new Stampin' Blends before adding a Wink of Stella for some sparkle.
I added some Tombow glue to the edges of the paper and dipped it into a tub of Dazzling Diamonds glitter for even more sparkle and shine and added a sentiment from the Hang Your Stocking stamp set to finish.
I only managed to make 37 swaps which was just as well as I had a hard time fitting everything into my case for the journey home!
