Stampin’ Up! Leadership 2013 Swaps

Remember  the swap I made  for Stampin’ Up!’s 2013 Leadership Conference?

Well . . . it was a lot of work to make them.  But sooooo worth it!  Look at all the wonderful goodies I got in return :-)

Stampin' Up! Leadership 2012 Swaps


My only regret is that I didn’t make more so that I would have had more to trade.  It was so much fun!  Like being a kid again.

Do you like to swap (make multiples of one card and trade them for all different cards)?  If I organized a swap, how many cards would you want to trade?  Five? Ten?  Let me know in the comment section below.

Awesome Presentations at Leadership 2013

Stampin’ Up! went all out with their Breakout Sessions and Share Fair.  There was so much to learn!!  I took furious notes and snapped lots of pics :-)  I’m so glad to be associated with a company that values growth and development so much.

Here are a few tidbits from the sessions I chose to attend.

How to Get to Manager’s Reception Next Year – Brian Pilling

Brian is HILARIOUS and really got me ramped up to put a plan in action to make it to Manager’s Reception next year.  I can do it!!  Wonder if it will be somewhere as cool as it was this year.  Totally jealous of the ladies who got to go to “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter”!

 Success Strategies to Empower Your Downline - Holly Linford and Lynsay Mahon

These girls almost made me want to take up rock climbing . . . almost.  But, they did help me to see that big mountains are a lot easier to tackle when you break them down into manageable chunks.
