As I was packing up to come home from convention I took a quick photo of all the FREE giveaways Stampin’ Up! showered me with. I had to strategically place things for this photo because I’m not allowed to show you any new product until it’s available for purchase. So yes, underneath everything you can see in the photo are some other hidden treasures. But don’t worry, just a few more days until August 1st when the Holiday Catalog goes live.
Stampin’ Up! offered us a challenge at convention to get parties booked, so I thought I’d take the challenge and sweeten the pot.
Schedule your own party, private class, book party or personal order of $150 or more and not only will you get the regular hostess benefits from Stampin’ Up! but I will include your choice of the “Perfectly You” hostess stamp set from the Holiday Catalog or the “Simply Sketched” hostess stamp set from the Annual Catalog. You will receive your FREE stamp set when the qualifying party is held. Your party must total at least $150 and be held by September 30th to qualify. Contact me today before all my available dates are taken.
Create, Inspire & Share. That’s Stampin” Up!s motto, and that’s exactly what this years convention has been about. The photos above are actually the card displays. Each panel is about 4 feet wide and 10 feet tall and has a ton of cards on them. They always display them by color so it’s really pretty to look at, but this year they took it one step further and spelled out Create, Inspire & Share.
I got a lot of great ideas for cards, scrapbook pages, 3-D items and so much more. Day 2 of convention started out with general session in the morning where they showed us some brand new items that will be available in the next few months. I can’t show them to you yet, but let me tell you, you’re going to “flip” over them…(that’s a hint).
We then had an expo in the afternoon where we could attend whatever we wanted to attend. I chose to see some great stamping demonstrations and another class on business tools. Both of those we really great.
We ate dinner at the Melting Pot before we headed to awards night. It was a great day getting to be recognized for my achievements for the past year. I was recognized for earning the Grand Vacation Cruise to the Western Caribbean next May, for having sales of over $30,000 this past year, for reaching level 2 in leadership promotions in my team and for reaching over $300,000 in career sales since I started with Stampin’ Up!
After the awards ceremony we had the 25th Anniversary Party. That was a lot of fun too, with yummy desserts, a great band that played 80’s music, and Arial Silk Acrobats. It was a jam packet day and it was wonderful. I can’t wait to share with you what happens on our third and final day.
