Yesterday was our Demonstrator-only training day, and we were lucky enough to have one here in Perth - at Rendezvous Hotel in Scarborough.

This was the view from the Dome coffee shop attached to the foyer of the hotel where Onstage was held, just gorgeous!
The area has just undergone a massive overhaul, and when it's completely finished, this will be another gorgeous part of the coast you just have to visit!

We had to check in pretty early - 7.30am early! But it was so worth the early wake-up time! I went to Onstage with one of my team, Sandra, and as she is deaf, we were able to go in early and get a table right down the front so that she could lip-read the presenters, how thoughtful is that of Stampin' Up! ?
Here is our view from our table - that's how close we were!

All of tables were decorated and all were different colours, and each place setting had presents!

We watched stamping presentations, both live and recorded, heard about some upcoming products in the new catalogue, had some business presentations, demonstrator recognition and our very own copy of the new catty!!
I can't share any info from the catalogue just yet, ( just know that it will blow your mind!) but I CAN share some of what we were given on the day!
Check out this gorgeous tote bag, it's reversable!!

Inside the bag was a lanyard for our name badge, pens, a prize patrol pin, and a new stamp set.
We were also handed this gorgeous striped box, which held a light box!
On the table we had a planner and matching grid paper, which I was very careful not to stamp on and ruin so I could bring it home haha :)

During the day, we had prize patrol - in our bags was a coloured, numbered pin, and if your colour/number was shown on the screen, you won a brand new stamp set! Everyone ended up winning a prize patrol, I got the cutest set!
There was also an all-attendee prize patrol too, even more exciting new stuff!

In between both in-person and on-the-screen stamping presentations, we made 4 cards with brand new product from a big tote in the middle of the table, I can't wait to show them to you!

We had a break for a yummy cupcake to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Stampin' Up! - it was the best cupcake I have had in a long time!!

We were able to see all of the projects presented on display boards as well as the hundreds of swaps that the attendees made, so much inspiration! Plus all of the new suites were on display boards scattered around the foyer, so that we could see and touch - I love the amazing effort SU! puts into these events!

At the end of the event, we were told to dump the contents of the massive product tote into the middle of the table, then we took turns choosing something from it - I ended up with a stamp set, a package of dimensionals, amazing watercolour-look cards and envelopes, and a new versamark pad - so very generous!!

It was such an amazing day, you have to see it to believe it! Our next training day is in November, in Brisbane, it's going to be an amazing party as SU! is celebrating it's 30th year.

The retirement list is out Tuesday 10th, so be sure to check back then, but if you wanted the reinkers for the retiring In Colour Inkpads, you'd best put your order in tonight - they will be gone in a blink as soon as the list is released!

Until next time,
