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”!
Ramping Up Your Social Media Presence – Diane Dimich, Catherine Pooler, Becky Roberts, Andrea Withers
All of these ladies were inspiring. I picked up lots of tips and can’t wait to put them into action! It was fun to get to see some of my “blog heroes” in real life.
Creating a Blueprint for Success – Brandi Barnard and Meg Daves
Fabulous info from the adorable Brandi Barnard. Loved Meg Daves honesty and “real”ness! And . . . thanks for the info on the “Cost Calculator” ladies!! I love anything that makes math easier.
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.
Stampin’ Up! really is the BEST! They take care of their Customers and they certainly take care of their Demonstrators. Today we got a TON of information to help us build our business and be the best Demonstrators we can be.
This morning, Shelly (Stampin’ Up! ‘s co-founder), told us about some FABULOUS changes coming soon. I can’t wait to tell you about all them. I just love how SU! is always adapting to suit the needs of their Customers, their Demonstrators and their Company.
These are all of the wonderful goodies we got at our Main Stage Presentation today. Good thing I brought a big suitcase with me.
And this was our lunch YUM! I couldn’t even finish it, it was so big. I feel like a pretty spoiled little girl right now. But, I think I can take one more day of it. What do you think?
Look at all the wonderful surprises we received at Stampin’ Up!’s Leadership Conference today!! I am worn out, but I just had to give you a peek.
Paper and Pens and Purses and MORE!!
Yummy Chocolate! - 3 different kinds 🙂
A BEAUTIFUL tri-fold fabric case for a pen and notebook!
Tri-fold Case - Opened Up
Wait till you get a look at this bag close up! I swear Stampin’ Up! is so good at making a single item do the work of MANY. This is 4 bags in 1!
This is the way I received it. We'll call this version #1.
Unbutton the Bottom and Remove to get Version #2
Turn Version #2 Inside Out to get Version #3
Turn Bottom (that we removed earlier) inside out and attach to Version #2 to get Version #4
Note: If you sewed another set of buttons to the outside of Version #3 (which I am gonna’ do as soon as I get home 🙂 , you would have SIX bags in one!! I promise if I had a needle in thread I would do it RIGHT NOW. I have the buttons from the SU! stash in the very top picture. Yep, I just need a needle and thread . . . oh yeah, and maybe I need to not be exhausted from getting up at 3:30 AM to catch my plane. Yeah, I guess the buttons will have to wait.
Wanna’ join in the FUN!?!?!? Call or email me and find out how you can check out our next Downline meeting on Thursday 1/26/12. We would love to have you!
This year I qualified to go to Stampin’ Up!’s annual Leadership Conference!!! I couldn’t believe it when I found out this Fall, and I can hardly believe it now that I’m about to leave for San Antonio, Texas!!
Can’t wait to tell y’all ALL about it !! 🙂
Holy Smokes! It must be real – that’s MY name!!
I can HARDLY WAIT to see what kind of goodies will be in our Leadership Bags!
