November 2021 OnStage Gifts & Glimpses
Many of us Stampin’ Up! demonstrators are in the midst of our yearly convention, the November 2021 OnStage@Home. So today I thought I’d share a few glimpses from this event, share a bit of what we’ve experienced so far, show off the gifts Stampin’ Up! sent to us attendees, share the gifts I sent to my team members, and tell you a bit of news about my rankings this year.
This event is still virtual, so here is my viewing area in my favorite spot of the house, my crafting room. This time I brought over my BIG screen, my desktop computer. So I had four devices in front of me which also included my laptop, iPad and iPhone.
Thursday night was all about celebrating each others achievements and introducing new products that will debut in January. We had a team Zoom (hosted by my upline, Susan Campfield) that started an hour before the SU event where we chatted and stamped. I believe there were over 60 of us online at once! And then many of us stayed on the Zoom while we also watched the event at the same time.
The bonus to that was not only did it feel more like we were in person together cheering for each other when names were announced, but we got to go through the new January-June 2022 Mini Catalog & Sale-a-Bration Brochure at the end of the SU presentations. It’s ALWAYS much more fun to look at a new catalog with other crazy, obsessed paper crafters!
Yesterday was the second day. And it was a full one…over 7 hours of more great content which also included even MORE new product presentations. Here are just a few peeks at what will be coming soon!

We have one more full day today. Fun, fun, fun!
Here are the gifts that Stampin’ Up! sent to all of us attendees (well,…all of us that registered to get the “swag.”) The swag included exclusive grid paper, a fun angle-bound notepad, a set of three OnStage pins, a set of six pencils, a fun tote bag, and the In The Moment Stamp Set (which will be available in the new mini). Stampin’ Up! also sent all the leader demonstrators a pair of magazine holders with a matching pen holder.
Speaking of gifts, it’s sort of a tradition for uplines to send goodies to their event-attending team members. So this time I reached out to Glenn at www.thecountrycardinal.com and he mass produced 80+ of these coasters for me. I sent him my design, and he printed them. Oh my goodness…I was so impressed when they arrived! In fact, because he lives “close enough,” he delivered them to my door! This may seem strange, but it’s all good when he is the father of one of my team members. (Ashley, the co-owner of www.thecountryhive.com is his daughter.)
Aren’t these just beautiful!?
For the packaging, I added each of these coasters to a cellophane bag along with a couple bags of guava tea, added a stamped and decorated topper, added a note on the back, and then inserted our team ribbon in the in-between space of the topper.
Products I used for the topper… See below for a list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.
- Basic White Cardstock
- 4” x 6″ scored parallel to short side at 3”
- Rainbow Glimmer Paper
- 3/4” x 4”
- Granny Apple Green Cardstock
- Scrap for die-cutting the leaves
- Basic Black Cardstock
- Scrap for die-cutting the butterfly
Here is a photo nearing the end in the assembly of these 80 gifts.
And here are my bins ready for the further packaging (inserting each of them into larger cello bags and then into bubble mailers). My postal carrier, Scott loves me. Hahaha!
I love these events! Joining together with my stamping friends in this way gives all of us so much energy and joy! It allows us to look forward at what’s to come. But it also allows us to look back.
And what a year it has been! Thank you to all of you who have helped me to get here. I’m BLOWN AWAY to be among the top achieving Stampin’ Up! demonstrators again this past 2020-21 year!
