What is Creativity Your Way you ask? It’s the new 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog that demonstrators who attending an OnStage event got their hands on this past weekend. It’s full of new stamp set and accessories and creative ideas. Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world attended either the three-day OnStage Live convention in Amsterdam or a one day OnStage Local mini-convention somewhere in the U.S., Canada, or the South Pacific (Australia or New Zealand).
Whichever venue one attended as a demonstrator, it-was-fun! Shelli Gardner, co-founder of Stampin’ Up!, popped in via very well timed videos, from her home in Utah. Then her daughter Sara Douglass, current CEO, came into our convention hall ‘live video streaming’ from Amsterdam sharing bits of creativity throughout her chat with us. We got the sense of actually being there.

And of course, sharing my creativity with the cards and 3-D items I made for a display board using two new stamp sets, You’ve Got Style which features two vintage type female characters and four great word stamps, and Birthday Delivery which features a fox, a dog, a little girl, a pastry chef, and some birthday elements plus some fun Designer Series Paper called Birthday Memories. There are also some framelits in the bundle. I’ll be posting my creativity during the next few weeks.
I’m so glad I went, as always, although it was a quick trip. I came home with quite a few new business tips and lots of creative tips which I look forward to sharing as “Creativity Your Way” and our way in the coming weeks and months.
