Onstage Solihull 2017 – what a blast!

By | November 12, 2017

We wait for 6 months for these events to come round and before we know it, they’re over!! But Onstage Solihull 2017 was amazing – thank you so much Stampin’ Up! – it was a blast!!

We kicked off the beginning of Stampin’ Up’s 10 year anniversary in the UK with the Centre stage event.  This is an exclusive event for Silver Elites and above and it is truly an honour to be included in this elite group of demonstrators. Was going to share a little something from the event but realised it was something new and I can’t share it just yet!! Watch this space…

I ended the evening with my team finishing off swaps and consuming our team cheese – we are very fond of our cheese in the Aces and Diamonds!

Saturday arrived and we headed back to the National Motorcycle Museum for the main event with approximately 450 other demonstrators from across the UK. We chatted, caught up and swapped our hearts out for the first hour and it is so good to catch up in person!

I made these little gifts for my team  – they really are amazing!

Also managed to catch up with the ever lovely Stampin’ Creative Crew

We participate in a Blog Hop the last Saturday of every month and only get to see each other in person at our Stampin’ Up events so it is so good to catchup – I made each of them a little chocolate treat to keep us from flagging through the long day.

And finally, here is my swap. I used Weather Together to create this card and the Stampin’ Blends to colour in the image.  If you pop back later in the week, I will have a video to show you how I created it. It is so easy and fun to do with the Stampin’ Blends.

So all in all, a great weekend was had by all and I must admit I am now shattered!!

It feels a long time to wait until April for the next one, but wait we must.  I can’t wait to share all my swaps with my team who weren’t lucky enough to get places and also my customers at next week’s classes.

So if you’re coming along, you’re in for a treat!

Until next time, happy crafting
