What a whirlwind of a day… wait, do all my Stampin’ Up! event posts start with that line?? Well the great part is that it’s always a wonderful whirlwind of creativity, inspiration and yes, free stamps! This year’s Leadership Conference has been no different.
Here are a few of the highlights from this year’s Leadership:
This is the kick-off for Stampin’ Up!’s 25th year – and I’m excited to be a part of it! The morning started off with a fabulous message from Shelli Gardner about the Statement of the Heart, and how much we all together have allowed Stampin’ Up! to make a difference in the past 25 years.
Then the stamping sessions got underway with a variety of fabulous ideas… you’ll just have to wait for many of them, since I’ll be sharing on my blog over the next couple of weeks! But here’s a teaser taste of some of the beautiful things we saw…. first with the Artisan Embellishments Kit (see it online – 129328):
And then with the Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit (see it online – 131395):
Then there was the fabulous announcement of the Dude, You’re Welcome Kit (see it online – 132807), which you can order starting today! It’s stamps, an ink pad and manly papers for guys who forget their wives’ birthdays, or who just want brownie points for stamping their own cards!
Then it was the announcement about My Paper Pumpkin (which you can sign up for starting today!!). Here’s more on my blog about that… and at Leadership, we each got to take a 1st month kit and the trial kit home for free!! Think we were excited? Much?
After that was lunch, which is always a relaxing affair at Leadership — think white tablecloths, several courses, and a chance to visit with friends to talk about our impressions of Leadership.
Then that evening we gathered (all 1500 of us!) for a stamping under the stars evening, pajamas required!
For even more fabulous ideas, like this one using the Soda Pop Tops bottlecaps (see them online – 129388) from the Spring Catalog:
Really, how fun is that?? Bottlecap jewelry is so trendy, and with a 1″ circle punch, Crystal Effects and the Soda Pop Tops (smash with your Big Shot), you’re all set!
After stamping, it was time for cookies and milk. Because really, what pajama party is complete without them??
We had a great time gathering with old friends from around the US and Canada, and meeting new friends, too. It’s always a good time when demonstrators gather.
So we’re looking forward to gathering again soon — in St. Louis for the Stampin’ Up! Regional!
If you’d like to join me and my LovenStampfuls team, I’d love to have you there! Be sure to let me know you’re thinking about it. And remember that if you’re loving all these updates about events, YOU can come, too! There is a terrific bonus coming up soon for the New Demonstrator Starter Kit. Drop me a note and I can get you details!!
