November is usually a relatively quiet month for me. It's the slow build to the big holiday season, the nights are cooler, and usually I get my first fire in the fireplace before month's end. I'm not sure about you, but my busiest time of the month tends to be Thanksgiving itself. Not so this month!
You may have heard of Stampin' Up!®'s convention for Demonstrators; OnStage. This year, the big show is in Salt Lake City, Utah. And I'm so excited to say that I will be attending! Can you hear my excitement? No? I'M GOING TO MY FIRST ONSTAGE!!!!
OnStage Salt Lake City
You may be saying, Merit, I've never heard of OnStage before. After all, before I joined Stampin' Up!®, I had never heard of it either. It's basically a gathering of just under 3,000 Demonstrators from around the world (both hobby and business demos) to see brand new product and demonstrations. In this case, we'll be taking a look at the 2018 Occasions Catalog and upcoming Sale-A-Bration offerings.
Stay tuned later this month for a quick recap of the event and a peek at some new stamp sets!
Stamp Set of The Month
Christmas is coming! I know, I know, it's not even Thanksgiving yet. But you know as well as I do that it comes up pretty quickly. And any Christmas crafts (especially cards) need to get started pretty far in advance. Otherwise you'll end up like me last year: assembling 50+ shaker cards on December 18th trying desperately to finish them and get them in the mail.
With that in mind, I'm turning my focus to one of my favorite sets from the 2017 Holiday Catalog; Beachy Little Christmas. If you'll be joining me for Christmas Club this month, you'll be making a few of this month's cards! If you're not in the area, be sure to check out my YouTube Channel for some videos toward the end of the month.
Later in the month, beginning on Monday, November 20th, Stampin' Up!® is once again having their Online Extravaganza! This means 24 hour flash sales and more! Make sure to stay tuned and keep checking back for more details!
Well, that's all I have for you today, be sure to check back throughout the month for more details on my first OnStage experience and more!
