My Onstage Swaps

A highly anticipated activity when demonstrators gather is swapping. I knew my time leading up to Onstage convention was tight so I did not sign up for any swaps.

A day before departure, I realized I had some Card Buffet kits that just needed assembly. I brought 7 cards to swap and came back with 5. That math is a little off but I gave 2 of them to worthy demonstrators. Maybe they will snail mail me a card instead? I can only hope for happy mail:)

Here is the card I created…



I used sponge daubers for quick and easy coloring. Plus, the puppy needs to look fluffy so sponging was the best coloring option for this outcome. The stamp set Bella and Friends is being retired at the end of May. So order yours today from me!


These are the swaps I received in exchange from fellow demonstrators…


Is convention starting to look like a fun day? It is. I would love to have you join me in November. First step is to become a demonstrator on my team. Click the Contact button above to get started!

Fall Fling Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Gathering


Would you like to enjoy a day with other Independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrators, stamping fabulous projects, talking about the latest products and sharing business tips? Fall Fling is Saturday, September 15th, 9am-4:30pm in Sun Prairie. Sun Prairie is located about 10 minutes from the east side of Madison, Wisconsin, USA.

The morning activity is a shoebox swap. You design a card and then prepare card kits so that other demonstrators at the event stamp and assemble your kits. Everyone else prepares kits too. We pass the supplies used for assembling the kits in shoebox sized containers. Thus, it is called a shoebox swap.

Lunch is through a group Jimmy John’s order or bring your own. Link will be provided closer to the event date.

The afternoon activities include make-n-takes which you only need to provide your adhesives for and demonstrations which you get to sit back and watch.  The day ends with business talks.

Early bird registration closes on August 16th with all registration closing on August 23rd so we have enough time to prepare our projects.

Swaps are tracked through a Doodle poll. Click here to register your swaps.

Please click the Contact button above to request a registration form and to RSVP.

Thanks and hope to stamp with you then!
