Centrestage is an event for Demonstrators titled at Silver Elite or above. I made the title of Silver Elite a couple of years ago and have been fortunate to attend 4 of these events.
Centrestage is a time when we have some specialised training for leaders and Stampin’ Up! make announcements so that we can better support our downlines.
In Melbourne this year we were treated to a lovely dinner and dessert which I got to enjoy with the lovely Marelle, our Team leader and Melissa a fellow demonstrator under Marelle. This was the first time we’d met Melissa as she is from WA.
And finally the three of us also had a photo with the Stampin’ Up logo. It was such a great night to share with these two amazingly talented women.

Every year I get requests to make Christmas cards for customers to send out to their clients. I had a request from one customer for 150 cards. I decided to go with this design. I chose the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper pack again and could get lots of cards out of the paper pack.
The stamp set I used is the Illuminated Christmas stamp set from the Holiday Catalogue in real red ink. I used the stamparatus to line up both of the stamps used. I complimented the dsp with a strip of card stock. I layered the oval onto a scallop oval.
My customer is very happy with the design and as there were a few patterns in each pack of dsp I could use various designs.
Again this is another fairly simple christmas card that could easily be duplicated.
At our Onstage Local event this year we swap cards or 3D items so that we can get inspired to be more creative with the products that we have on hand. Its also a great way to get some samples to show our customers when we don’t own a stamp set or set of dies that someone else does.
My swap this year was using the Wishing You Well stamp set using the wreath and ribbon. I hand cut out the ribbon and used the stamparatus to line up the wreath and the “Season’s Greeting” in the middle of the wreath. I must say the Stamparatus has come in very handy in so many different projects. If you don’t already have this tool you really need to buy one.
These cards are fairly simple to stamp and assemble, but I do love the simple cards. I like to create simple cards so that if someone wants to duplicate the card they can fairly easily with the products that I list below.
