Sharing On Stage: Make & Takes, CentreStage

I had so much fun this past weekend.  I got to spend time with my DOstamperSTARS team and fellow demonstrators at the Stampin' Up! Minneapolis On Stage Local Event.  I was fortunate that it was held in my backyard - yay!  Today I'm sharing the delightful make & takes (with new products coming June 1st from the 2017/18 Annual Catalog) we got to make Saturday.  As well as photos from Friday's CentreStage event for leaders.

Mediterranean Cruise Display Boards: 12 fabulous cards!

Today I'm sharing some of my favorite cards on display while on the Stampin' Up! Mediterranean Cruise last month.  I apologize in advance for the quality of these photos.  My camera didn't do very well with the lighting on the boat, so many didn't turn out very well.  Some were so blurry that there was no saving them.  But I think you'll enjoy these!

We're off to Barcelona & the Mediterranean!

A few weeks ago, our travel documents arrived in style for the Stampin' Up! Mediterranean Cruise!  This is our 10th incentive trip with Stampin' Up! and we've be so looking forward to this particular trip of a lifetime.  And now it's here - yay!

Stampin' Up! Travel Wallet shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

Stampin' Up! Travel Wallet shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

The travel wallet is only the beginning of the pampering Stampin' Up! showers on us during each trip.  As we walk into our room each night, we're surprised by pillow gifts waiting for us.  Wonder what surprises they have in store for us this year?

Barcelona

We're traveling a few days early to spend some time with our friends & fellow demonstrator LeeAnn & Andy in Barcelona, Spain.  We rented a timeshare and are looking forward to a little sightseeing, some tapas, as well as time to relax & play board games before the cruise.

This is one of the sites we are planning to tour, Sagrada Familia, photo by Bernard Gagnon, learn more here.

Norwegian Epic

Cruise Map

Once we're on the boat, we'll be sailing the Mediterranean to Italy (Naples, Rome & Florence) and France (Cannes & Marseille).  Like I said, a trip of a lifetime!  

I couldn't have imagined when I joined Stampin' Up! 13 years ago, that not only would I get to travel around the world to so many wonderful destinations. but ALSO...that so many wonderful people are now in my life.  I'm ever so grateful for all of my fabulous customers and my awesome STARS, many of whom I call friend.  But also so many incredible fellow demonstrators from all over the world as well.  You have all been a blessing in my life and I can't thank you enough!

I'll be sharing fewer posts while I'm gone.  But if you need anything, my assistant will be covering my email while I'm gone, and is there to help you.  
 
Thank you for your support and friendship~Dawn O

On Stage Sneak Peek: Foxy Friends, 2016-18 In Colors

2016 April On Stage shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

I got back from the April 2016 Stampin' Up! On Stage event and started to wade through my photos.  Yikes, I had taken over 800 photos.  After whittling them done to around the 550 range, I shared them with my DOstamperSTARS this past weekend.  One of my STARS, Elizabeth said..."I almost feel like I got to go with you!"  As you might imagine, everyone was very excited!  Now I'm going through them again and will be sharing some of my favorites with you throughout the coming weeks. 

The event started out with a bang and fun band to get us in the party mood.  Then moved right into new product demonstrations...our favorite!!   For today, here's a sneak peek at some new products...the 2016-2018 In Colors and the super duper cuuute Foxy Friends Bundle!  These products will be available starting June 1st.

CenterStage Event for Leaders 

Duelling Pianos 2016 Centerstage Stampin' Up! #dostamping

Stampin' Up! treated Leaders to a fancy dinner and entertainment on the first night.  They were an interactive all-request dueling pianos act and they were incredibly entertaining!  I used to play piano (and used to be pretty good at it - a little trivia about me!), so I thoroughly enjoyed their piano stylings!

2016 Centerstage Stampin' Up! #dostamping

Yum!  Stampin' Up! always puts on good show for us!


Shelli & Sara

Shelli & Sara April 2016 On Stage #stampinup #dostamping

Shelli & Sara April 2016 On Stage #stampinup #dostamping

At the final session we were treated to Shelli and Sara stamping together again!  I always enjoy their combined presentations.  It just brings a smile to my face.  Probably because it brings smiles (and grimaces) to their faces too.  You can tell that they are having a good time.  Great way to end the event!

I hope you enjoyed this little peek into the Stampin' Up! 2016 On Stage event, as well as the Foxy Friends & 2016-2018 In Color sneak peeks.
