I’m so sad to say that Convention is over…..but what an amazing three days we had last Thursday, Friday and Saturday!
There is sooooo much to tell and sooooo much I can’t tell you, we are sworn to secrecy about keeping all the fabulous sneak peeks we saw from the upcoming Idea Book & Catalogue due out here in September to ourselves.
I had a wonderful time with my amazing team of demonstrators from the Inksationals and I am very proud of all their achievements with Stampin’Up! Many of the team made the stage walk and received awards at the closing evening session of Convention when The Demonstrator of the Year is announced and many have achieved personal goals with Stampin’Up! during the year – well done Girls!
I was such a proud mother hen of my team as when the Demonstrator of the Year Awards were announced we had FOUR girls from the Inksationals in the Top 25 in Australia! Plus Simone was placed as Number One in Australia for Leadership – Big, big congrats Simone!
I love this photo taken after the awards. It shows Maureen Crameri – No 10, myself – No 24 ( that was a wonderful surprise!), Our Stampin’Up! founder and CEO Shelli Gardner, Tracy Penn – No 6, and Simone Bartrum No 7.
Convention was a fabulous time for catching up with friends, making new friends, meeting the team behind Stampin’Up! and most of all learning loads of wonderful new stamping and crafting ideas! This has to have been the best Convention ever!
Stampin’Up! was amazingly generous with the prize patrol gifts ( achieved an ambition there I finally won a prize patrol! Free stamps!!!!!!), and extra free gifts we toatlly did not expect! Think new stamps and goodies from the upcoming big catalogue!!!!
PLUS our customers are going to receive gifts too! From May 23 to June 30 if you host a workshop / catalogue party / place an order and it is over $450 you will receive an EXTRA $70 on top of the $40 and free hostess stamp set you already receive!!!!!! HOW GOOD IS THAT!!!!! So please give me a call if you would like a workshop or catalogue to host your own catalogue party.
The other great piece of news is that to share in the fun of being part of Stampin’Up! as a demonstrator you NO LONGER NEED TO HAVE AN ABN NUMBER to sign up! Joining in the fun has become so much simpler! You can get more details here. By joining now you will get to take advantage of the $70 free hostess money when you make your first order! Becoming a part of Stampin’Up! means you can join in the fun of Convention and you too could walk the stage one day at Convention! If you have any questions please drop me a line.
I’ll be back soon with more fun from Convention! See You!
