We had an hour of general session before there was a class for those wishing to advance to a higher title. As I am already at that title, I took the time to go and take photos of all of the display boards and have an early lunch, before heading back to my room for some quiet time - I snuck in a yummy ice cream from New Zealand Natural and a movie in my room - before heading back to the convention centre for the last general session of the convention.
We congratulated more of our deserving demonstrators who had milestones throughout the year, found out when and where our upcoming Incentive trips and Onstage Live and Local locations would be, and watched more stamping presentations, before we all received all-attendee prizes.
There is such a buzz about Onstage - everyone is so excited and it is a wonderful experience!
I spent my last evening with an early dinner after a couple of cocktails, then back to my room to pack for the next day, and to have an early night. I loved my time away, but I was excited to head back to my family, and get back into our busy life!
If you think you could handle a couple of days away, or even just a day for the local "onstage' convention, being inspired and recharging your business and your soul, why not consider joining my team? You can join to run a business or just to get the discount for yourself, no pressure to sell, and if it's not for you, you can leave at any time! Our next onstage local is in April in my home town of Perth, and in Sydney, and Sale-a-bration in the months leading up to Onstage is a fantastic time to join - not only will you get up to $235 worth of product of your choice, from either of our catalogues, but you can also choose 2 extra stamp sets of your choice, an extra value of up to $179!! - why not give me a call to discuss how it works? No obligation, and if you're local to me, I will even treat you to a coffee catchup!
I love being a part of Stampin' Up!, and I would love to share it with you - just ask me :)
We started the day with another general session, watching amazing stamping presentations and local demonstrators talking to us about their businesses.
After lunch, we split off into our groups, each group was over 100 demonstrators, and we got to see and hear about new product suites in the upcoming Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogues.
My group started with the Falling in Love Suite, where we made a Wedding card:
For our second class, we used the the Sending Love Suite, where we made Valentine's cards:
For our 3rd class, we used the
Party Animal Suite where we made a Birthday card, using an amazing new thinlit die in the Big Shot:
For our last class, we used Sale-a-bration products - these you can earn free with a qualifying order in Jan to March next year:
Did you happen to see what we used above? That's right, it's dsp you colour yourself, and even watercolour pencils in some of our signature colours!
At the end of the session, we were able to take it in turns to select one of the goodies from the products we used to create our make and takes - I managed to walk away with the stamp set, a new fast fuse and the roll of black twine! SU are so incredibly generous!
We had one last general session before we were done for the day. Then we headed off, tired but happy.
I headed off to Southbank after dropping off my bag and freebies in my hotel room. I had a snack and a cocktail at my favourite restaurant:
Then went for a walk to check out the markets and pick up some yummy chocolate for the family from Max Brenner:
