Founders Circle Wrap Up

Last week was our Founders Circle Trip with Stampin Up for the Top 20 Canadians and the Top 100 US demonstrators. The week went by so fast and I'm still exhausted from all the fun.

I have to admit, I don't sleep enough on these trips and with that and the time change, it takes me a while to recover.

Here's a re-cap of my week!

Day 1

I went in a day earlier to spend the night in Vegas with some of the Canadian achievers. I always find with the time difference, it helps to get there before everyone else and then meet up with everyone in St. George Utah the next day.

So, on Wednesday we returned to the Vegas Airport to meet up with Stampin Up! and were shuttled to St. George. When we arrived, we were welcomed by the event team and of course got started with winning prizes.

DSCN0006Next we got settled into our rooms and then had our welcome dinner where I got to meet new friends! On our tables was a home made jam for each of us. DSCN0015One of the perks of earning the trip is the PILLOW GIFTS we receive each night on our beds….tonights gift is a big pack of new products…we got a new stamp set, washi tape, designer paper, embossing folder, ribbon, and lots more…that will be in the Occassions Catalogue.

The second day of Founders was quite relaxing. I slept in….yippee! The hospitality room was filled with treats, so I had to go down and check that out. We got to do the horseshoe toss again and win another prize…I know, it's a hard life!

Founders-day2-1Next I actually did my make and take projects. We used our NEW PRODUCTS that we received as a pillow gift. I can't show you the actual products…but, I can show you the projects we made. Check out the display board below!

Founders-day2-2I took it pretty easy for the rest of the day…and then we had our PJ Party and Card Swap. I love exchanging cards with these amazing ladies. You should see the beautiful projects I got!! 🙂

On our third day, we went to the Kanab Facility where Stampin' Up! manufactures their stamps. I love going every year to see the amazing staff and to see the changes.

Yes, Stampin' Up! is all about changing for the better, and it amazes me each year to see all the progress they've made.

Founders-day3-1See those HUGE ROLLS OF RUBBER…that's the start of the magic that is a stamp set! Founders-day3-2We got to see some sneak peeks of the new Occasions Catalogue along the way…lots of fun new sets coming your way in 2014! Founders-day3-4Day 4-final day

The highlight of the final day is always the surprise event that Stampin' Up! plans for us. Each year it's different and since this year's theme was a western theme….they brought us to a Ranch.

We played a ton of really fun games and WON PRIZES at each station. We each left with a bag FULL of products! Thanks Stampin' Up!

Founders-day4-1There were cowboys…young and old and they were all so much fun to hangout with. Founders-day4-2The final dinner was yummy and kind of sad that I knew it was nearly time to go home. Founders-day4-3All in all, it was an amazing week and I'm thrilled to have earned this trip…thanks to my amazing group, the Inky Divas and to all my customers. I truly LOVE YOU ALL and I couldn't have earned this without your support!
