ICS Blog Hop - Join The Fold - Floral Phrases


Welcome to a special Inspire, Create, and Share blog hop! We recently attended OnStage in Salt Lake City with 2,700 demonstrators to see new products, hear training, and connect with friends. Our team met for dinner and to swap cards designed with fancy folds. Meeting together is the best and of course we want to share the fancy fold card designs with you!

Being a demonstrator means you meet people from all over the world, get to travel for events, we get the first peek at new products. Only demonstrators get the opportunity to attend Stampin’ Up! events to see the new catalog in hand, use the products, and the perk of bringing home new stamp sets, projects, and sometimes more! You can join one of our teams and receive all of these demonstrator perks. You select your starter kit, it is $125 in product but you only pay $99 and includes free shipping. Just ask your demonstrator where to get started to sign up OR if that is me click here!

This is our group at dinner in Salt Lake City - such fun to chat in person!  Demonstrators create sweet friendships as well as beautiful paper crafts.
I really enjoyed making this card.  It was my first time to make a Z fold design and it took a few trials and errors to get it right.  I used the Z fold design tutorial from Sue Vine.  My supplies are listed at the end of this post.
This design showcases many layers and angles.  So you need to be sure to think about the potential for designer series paper, embellishments, and of course stamping!

OnStage Days 2, 3, & 4

Two weeks ago I was at OnStage in Salt Lake City.  I shared our first days here , here, and here.  

This is the central part of the stage in the ballroom.


Stampin' Up! revealed our Occasions catalog and Sale-a-bration promotion coming in January.

We love prize patrol - getting free, new product is very exciting.  My prize is the Bird Banter stamp set coming in January.
The Amazing You stamps and coordinating thinlets are my favorite in the Sale-a-bration promotion.
These displays are samples of the new products.
The Beautiful Peacock is also part of our Sale-a-bration promotion.
Aren't the samples beautiful?  We all oohed and aahed to see the ribbon unraveled for the peacock's tail.
One of our product training workshops was the Bubble Over bundle.

Our team leader gifted us a lovely set of decorated notebooks, pen and the corrugated embellishments.  She didn't know she picked my favorite color!
That night I meet with my gals on the "Inspire, Create, & Share" blog hop team.  Many of us were meeting in person for the first time.  After introductions we swapped cards.
Then we went to dinner.  We always need more time to chat and connect!
Walking past the Capitol Theatre - the lighting is captivating!
Here it is during the day, the restoration is beautiful!
The colors are so vivid.
Pillow gifts from your roomate is a fun tradition.  This usually happens the first night but I was spoiled with gifts every night to celebrate my Silver Elite title.
Saturday was a CenterStage lunch and training for Silver Elite demonstrator titles and above.  I was tickled to have a picture with Sara Douglass our CEO and her mom/founder, Shelly Gardner.
Our table decor.
We all loved the place cards.  Who knew that a copper pipe section could be so elegant?
This is the ballroom entry after our event ended.  People would fill this area as they waited for the doors to open.  It's hard to leave such an energizing event with wonderful friends, so people linger to avoid saying their goodbyes.
The view from our room was spectacular, I really enjoyed the mountains.
These are my gifts to take home from the general event and CenterStage.
That evening I joined my friends and teammates at Caffe Molise for dinner.  It was a treat to have gluten free Italian food that tasted awesome!
Friendships that I appreciate so much!  It was a very sweet last dinner together before packing to head to our home towns.
Before I headed home I had to find Mrs. Backer's Pastry Shop.  Friends shared their affection for this adorable, vintage shop.  I was smitten that it shares my name.
It was closed on Sunday (I can't eat their delicacies with my gluten restriction) so the photo opportunity was my goal.
Back home I enjoy using one of my event gifts, a beautiful mug!
Isn't is lovely?  I like the vibrant colors, the unique shape, and the memories!
It was a fantastic event, I am so grateful for my family's support for me to get away.  Thank you for sharing my experience, being a demonstrator is very fulfilling and exciting.  If you would like to be a demonstrator and join my team, you could attend these events with me.  The starter kit is the best deal in our catalog, ask me how to get started.  I look forward to meeting my friends in Las Vegas for OnStage in April!  


Our Online Extravaganza continues until Sunday, go shop my online store today!  Monday will be a one day flash sale for Cyber Monday - watch for sale details to come.
