Thailand Achievers April Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Thailand Incentive Trip Achievers Blog Hop for April 2017. This month our theme is the "Onstage April 2017". Onstage is an event held for Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators twice a year. As most of you know, my Dad passed away on February 21st and my Mom had not been doing well. I had to travel to bring her home with me for awhile so I was not able to attend our OnStage events. Mom is now doing well now and I am actually traveling today to take her back home. She felt ready enough to try.

So what happens at our OnStage events? We get to see, feel and play with the brand new products that will debut in our new Annual Catalog plus more. Since I was not able to attend, I found some photo's from other demonstrators to use on my post today. These highlights will show you how much fun we have as demonstrators and I hope that you can join us and other Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators in the future. Just another reason to join as a Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator, even if you aren't interested in selling.

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog, Debbie Henderson at Debbie's Designs or you may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup will be included at the bottom of my post to help you move along from blog to blog so you see more excitement!

So this year, the Stampin' Up! OnStage live event was being held in Amsterdam Netherlands and the photo above is our Stampin' Up! CEO Sara Douglas getting ready for the event. She always does such a great job! The group photo below was taken in Amsterdam which consists of some Stampin' Up! employees and demonstrators. Don't they look like they are having a great time?

For every OnStage Live event, we also have multiple OnStage Local events. At OnStage Local we get to watch recorded content from the OnStage Live event, see and create projects with new products, be first to hear company announcements, receive valuable training tips, and participate in the Product Purchase Premiere. We usually receive a copy of the new catalog AND get to purchase some of the new products to take home with us! Not only is OnStage an investment in our businesses—and in you—but Stampin’ Up! events are also a little bit magical. These were the US locations for April, I would have chosen the Richmond Virginia location as that is the closest to me in Maine:

Minneapolis, MN
Richmond, VA
San Diego, CA
Savannah, GA
Shreveport, LA


So neat to see the diversity in our events. Look at all the different languages shown on the large banner above. For those of you that don't realize this, Stampin' Up! is US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Netherlands, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Austria & Japan!

Swaps, swaps and more swaps! That's another high-light of attending our OnStage events. You get to swap with anyone and everyone. Just look at these swaps that Narelle Fasulo posted on her Facebook page. For every swap you create, there's always someone to swap with:

Some demo's bring 25, 50, 100 and even more swaps to swap with! So much inspiration! Speaking of inspiration, did you happen to view my blog post showing you some new goodies that demonstrators were able to pre-order? I made this card with the Eastern Palace Suite and you as a customer will be able to order a whole month before the new catalog goes live. Here's my card using some of the new products PLUS a few new In-Colors:

Have I talked you into joining Stampin' Up! yet? I would love to have you join my team. Contact me to find out how and why!
