Would you like to see the April 2018 OnStage gifts I got from fellow demonstrators?! Two demonstrators gave me gifts before I left – my upline, Susan Campfield and a gal in my Stampers With ART group (who also happens to be one of my assistants!), Vicki Spicer.

This gift is from Susan. She took one of our beautiful folders (a new supply item for demonstrators) and converted it into a mini double folder/booklet by trimming off the top and putting a couple extra creases in it. The retiring Night of Navy Crinkled Seam Binding is a beautiful touch for the closure. Then she made a mini apron box to hold Tic Tac mints with the Apron Builder framelits and floral stamp images from the retiring Lovely Friends stamp set.

Inside were all these goodies! (And check out the back side of the apron box. Adorable!)

This is what I received from Vicki. She first presented me with this beautiful bag that she made with the retiring Fresh Florals Designer paper and the retiring Lemon Lime Twist Finely Woven Ribbon.

This is a photo of the group I sat with at the CentreStage event, a special event for leader demonstrators. We are spoiled at this event! And this time was no exception. We received a tall pretty navy mug, a “coupon” for a free stamp set of our choice, the new In Color Markers, one of the new stamp pad, a sampler of ALL the cardstock (LOVE this!), the new catalog early (LOVE this, too!), a festive noise maker, and a fabulous dinner. My tablemates were wonderful company, too…pictured are Rose Ward, Deb Waterman, Kim Quigley, Gail Murray and me (dressed to the nines in my 80’s-themed party attire).

I got a few more photos with other “East coast” friends that evening. Janet Wakeland was surprised to see that I wasn’t in Milwaukee this time. Look at her fun outfit!

Tami White (who took the photo since she is much better than me at taking selfies!) was celebrated that evening for her 2 Million in career sales. What a SUPER incredible accomplishment!

The photos below are a few I took of some of the display boards. Each photo includes projects created with new products designed by demonstrators who were selected to be display stampers. (The names of each demonstrator are watermarked into the photo.)

The last set of projects shown above were created by my friend Debbie Henderson who along with Jason Loucks (sandwiched between Debbie and I in this photo below) help me to run the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club consisting currently of over 16,300 members. These two ROCK! It was so fun to all be at the same OnStage location!

So now that I’ve shared all my photos and news from OnStage (today, and Monday and Tuesday) I’m ready to share more of my stamping projects that I’ve been creating lately. Tomorrow I’ll be in a unique blog hop that makes me giddy. See you then?!
