Leadership Swaps

At every Stampin’ Up event, swapping is a huge aspect of the event… and Leadership was no exception. I thought I would share with you a few of the swaps I received. I made just over 100 swaps to trade with other demonstrators and I picked out my top 12. I’ll share six with you today and six with you tomorrow. Here are the first six: Made by: Jacynthe Gauthier Made by: Susannah Halweg Made by: Paula Farnell Made by: Wendy Randall Made by: Winona Semler Made by: Jan Burnett Aren’t they great? The swaps were really well done this year. I wish I had brought more! I was slacking a bit this time around. Last time I went to convention I made over 200! Maybe next time. lol! Thanks for stopping by….

Calling all bag ladies….

Is this not the most adorable bag you’ve ever seen? I LOVE it. It’s a reusable shopping bag featuring the Sweet Pea designer series paper that is in the new occasions mini catalog. I purchased six of these bags (one for me, of course!) at the Leadership conference in Phoenix, Arizona last week. The bags completely sold out within three days — so they are no longer available for puchase by demonstrators. But, lucky for you, I have FIVE that I am going to give to the first five people who book a Sale-A-Bration workshop with me (workshop must meet the minimum workshop total of $150 in sales)! I’m debuting a new format for my workshops (which I learned at Leadership) and the five lucky hostesses will get a hostess gift delivered in this adorable bag on the night of their workshop. This gift is in addition to the hostess benefits already offered through Stampin’ Up, including Sale-A-Bration rewards! Not familiar with Sale-A-Bration? Here’s how you earn free products: 1. Spend $50 and earn one free Sale-A-Bration product of your choice 2. Host a workshop of at least $300, and earn one free Sale-A-Bration product in addition to the generous

I LOVE Stampin’ Up!

I’ve always thought Stampin’ Up is a great company to work for/with… and after returning from my first Leadership conference in Phoenix, Arizona, I am even more happy with this organization that I have chosen to represent. Just look at all the goodies I took home from Phoenix. Now, the adorable little canvas bags I paid for at Memento Mall (a fabulous little store made up of all Stampin’ Up logo merchandise), but the rest of the goods were FREE! The black and white bag in the corner was our Leadership bag. At each Stampin’ Up event, attendees are given a bag to tote around all their really cool swaps, purchases and freebies. This bag says “Love What You Do”, which was the theme of Leadership. You’ll also notice two stamps sets there… the smaller one is “With All My Heart,” which was given to all demonstrators attending in their Leadership Bag. As many of you know from all the samples I’ve shown of that stamp set, that I love it and… I already own it, which means… someone is going to win the one I got at leadership very soon! (I’ll have details on how in a later post).

Happy New Year

Welcome 2010! I hope you all had a wonderful celebration for the end of 2009. I have high hopes for 2010. I love the beginning of a new year. Fresh starts always inspire me and I have a lot of fresh starts for this year … I’ll have more on that in a later post. For now, I wanted to show you another sneak peek from the Occasions Mini Catalog that goes live on Jan. 5. This card uses the “With all My Heart” stamp set again and the new Chocolate Chip epoxy brads. New on this card, (by new, I mean that you haven’t seen before — as I know all of the goodies on the card are essentially new!) Is new paper from the Sweet Pea Paper pack. It is absolutely adorable and probably one of my favorite new products! It is a 12 X 12 paper stack with a total of 48 sheets of paper (2 each of 24 double-sided designs). And you HAVE to have the matching Sweet Pea stitched felt (not shown here). Sooo cute! Guess what? You can actually view the ENTIRE new mini Occasions catalog on my website. The mailing of the catalogs
