I am super excited I had the opportunity to celebrate Stampin’ Up!’s 30th anniversary with a few of my demonstrator team members (Plus 6,000+ global friends) at OnStage Live in Orlando!
WHAT IS ONSTAGE?
OnStage is an exciting event that brings Stampin’ Up! demonstrators together. OnStage events are held every April and November in North America, South Pacific, and Europe. These events coincide with the launch of our annual and seasonal catalogs so you can see all of the new products before anyone else. Yes that means I got some great new products from the upcoming Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs early-whoo hoo!
Today I wanted to share a few highlights from our trip. Did you watch any of the facebook lives I did? Hopefully they made you feel as if you were having all the fun with us.
At OnStage we…
- Meet new demonstrator friends. Love this!
- Get an event bag with lots of goodies. Yippee!
- See live stamping and business presentations. These are super helpful for me better serve you
- See and play with brand-new products. Oh yes!
- Be recognized for any achievements you’ve reached. So fun to celebrate each other!
- Have a chance to win prizes. FREE stuff!
- Be able to order select products from the new catalog early!
Before I go too far I should mention something about my hair. I had several of my friends that I have know for many years not recognize me at OnStage so I decided when I returned home that it was time to update my photo. I decided late last December to stop fighting the gray hair and just let it go natural. What do you think?
Back to the OnStage fun…To start off the trip, we did a quick check in from the airport on our way out. We had team members coming in from different areas to meet up in Orlando. Here is a quick video of a few of us at the airport.

Once we arrived and checked in for the event, I did another quick check in so you could see the awesome bag and goodies we received in a gorgeous 30th anniversary box.
Next I was off to the Centre Stage leadership event where each of us that qualified got a FREE pass into Epcot where they were having the International Food & Wine Festival. Yummy!
We had an exclusive event where I met some new friends, received an exclusive stamp set and enjoyed some sweet treats!
Have you ever had a flambeed donut? This was pretty tasty.
As leaders we are the first to hear about the new product launches…whoo hooo! I am happy to share… cling stamps will be available in the new catalogs starting this January!
I shared a sneak peek sample the other day that also included the video on the cling stamps. Click HERE to check out the post in case you missed it.
The next day we headed off early to start our full day of fun. Courtney was super sweet to drive us over to the event from our hotel. We had a full car so I jumped in the back (technically the trunk) for the short ride over.
Once we found some seats, the swapping (and dancing) began! Demonstrators from all over the world were trading hand stamped samples.
In true fashion, Stampin’ Up! started the day with lots of goodies for us.
We got the new Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs that will start Jan. 3rd, 2019!
Jennifer Moretz and Carol Curran were some of the first to win some new stamps in a prize patrol!
We took several photos with our team as well as our stamping friends from all over the world. Here I am hanging out with Jennifer Hamlin, Courtney Resign and Jennifer Moretz as we sport our purple team shirts and super sparkly lanyards that I gave my team members that joined me at OnStage. Did you miss the post where I shared the team gifts? Click HERE to check it out.
Here is a video with a peek at some of our Make-N-Takes. I will be sharing each of these in future posts this month.
The staff at Stampin’ Up! are just so welcoming and are quick to join in all the fun. Here is a quick video with Sara Douglas (our CEO) dancing as we start one of the general sessions. Do you see her in the crowd?
Here are a few of the team (Stephanie Daniel, Jennifer Hamlin, Me & Courtney Resign) gathering outside the hotel with our friend Sharon Walker we met a couple of years ago in Atlanta. We are ready to start another fun-filled day!
More new stamps…I love an all attendee giveaway!
Jennifer & Courtney are checking out all the display boards.
One last prize patrol…I am super excited to have won the Well Said stamp set. This is going to be one of my favorites!
Here is one last video as we pack up to head back home so you can see all the goodies we got. I hope you enjoyed seeing just a bit of our experience and hope you will join us at the next event.

One of the perks for attending OnStage is the product purchase pre-order (PPP). We had the opportunity to order select new products, while also earning Sale-a-bration products early! Here is my unboxing video of the goodies I ordered during the PPP. I apologize I am sideways in the video…still figuring out all this technology 🙂
While there are some fabulous perks for those that are attending OnStage, all active demonstrators have the opportunity to order new products early!
