Stampin’ Up! OnStage Event Recap

Today’s post features a video of my OnStage Event Presentation, in Charlotte, NC on April 13, 2019.

I’ll also be sharing a few highlights of the event including photos of just some of the wonderful stamping friends I had the pleasure of sharing this event with. I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am for my stamping community! I was nervous about my presentation but truly felt so much support, there was simply no way it couldn’t have been just perfect.

Imagine feeling surrounded by a roomful of sisters, mothers, and grandmothers, cheering you on! It was truly incredible!

This first photo was taken during the rehearsals on Friday, the day before OnStage.

Karen Hauley (second from the left) was the stage manager, and Stampin’ Up! staff person leading us through the rehearsal process. She was amazing! The two women on the right are two of the other presenters, Audra Monk and Debbie Dean. It was so fun to share this experience with them!

The next photo includes a small contingent of North Carolina demonstrators that qualified to attend the Center Stage event.

This event happened on Friday evening and is only for demonstrators at the title of Silver Elite and above. I just achieved this title in January so I was super excited to be able to attend. We got our new annual catalog on Friday evening, (earlier than everyone else), a gift just for us, some leadership training and an amazing meal too! I loved sharing this event with the women you see in these next few photos plus lots more too!

More Center Stage friends… We just had to take a goofy shot just for fun!

Here’s me with my very talented friend Wendy Lee!

We hadn’t seen each other in quite a while so it was great to spend time together at the Center Stage leadership dinner.

Erica and Edwina both joined Stampin’ Up! in January. They got to stand and be recognized for being new demonstrators!

They both joined knowing they wanted to go to the OnStage Event here in Charlotte. It was so fun to share this experience with them!

I got to walk the stage and be recognized for my promotion to Silver Elite and for reaching my $200,000 sales milestone.

I’ve worked super hard and long to get to this point so I was incredibly excited to receive this recognition! I could not have done it without my team!

Another amazing highlight of this event was seeing and hanging out with more stamping friends from across the southeast!

This fun group of women are team members of my friend Wendy Cranford. She’s got a large contingent of demonstrators here in the southeast, and I’ve had the pleasure of meeting them at other stamping events in Atlanta, Savannah, and Salt Lake City over the years. I love spending time with this group!

I am a seeker of that crazy, excited feeling that comes when you've created something that’s unique, beautiful and expresses who you are in some small way. It’s like making a new discovery, when you find a unique combination of color, layout, dimension and texture. I call it a creative spark and it makes me giddy! Through sharing and teaching I hope to help others find this amazing feeling of creative bliss!

    Your OnCenter presentation was a blast watching. You had a bit of everything in that presentation, and what I particularly liked was your attention to the different levels of crafting so every one was included. You showed a different level card for beginners and on up.

    Once again, a hearty congratulations to you.

    • Thank you so much Parker! I’m so glad you know you enjoyed the presentation! It really was a blast and I’m so happy that I agreed to do it! By the way, every time I write your name I’m going to think of the story you told me. LOL!
