Friday morning started with another general session beginning with Sara Douglass reminiscing about the first convention she ever attended in 1993, when she was twelve years old.
It's amazing to see the history of Stampin' Up!, I can hardly believe that I personally have been doing this for 11 years.
Sara mentionned that Stampin' Up! conventions seems "like a family reunion–a very LARGE family reunion," and I truly agree!
During this session Stampin' Up! recognized many different achievements and it was so wonderful to clap for all the amazing demonstrators who achieved so much.
Shelli Gardner followed Sara with a stamping presentation featuring 25 projects (for 25 years)! She introduced two new products, the Label Card Thinlits Die and the Circle Card Thinlits Die coming August 1st, and demonstrated exciting, innovative ways to use these fun new products. *New product alert!!!*
Shannon West also introduced two new products–the Envelope Punch Board- soon available- and the Undefined Stamp Carving Kit-now available. You should have heard the cheering and excitement!! *New product alert!!*
I'm so pumped for the Envelope Punch Board…it makes envelopes in so many different sizes and is quite affordable…I cannot wait till it comes out! I can't show you what it looks like YET…but, here's a sneak peek of what you can make!
Friday evening's Awards Night was short and sweet but just as fabulous.
This year, I was once again honoured to be in the Top 20 in Canada…along with 3 other Inky Divas!! Here's a photo of Jen Dimarco & I…she earned for the first time this year and it was so exciting to see her tears of joy!
Those in the Top 20 in Canada and Top 100 in the US also earn a free Founder's Circle Trip to St. George, Utah in September. This trip is truly a reflection of how we are loved and appreciated by Stampin' Up! We get pampered like crazy!
From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank YOU my customers, blog readers and Inky Divas team….without you- I could not have earned this award and trip. So THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! I am blessed to have you all in my life!
This year's Awards Night achievers were also presented with gorgeous Hawaiian leis–and we didn't know then but those flowers were a hint of the announcement of our next incentive to which will be held in Oahu, Hawaii. 🙂
DON'T FORGET….that by joining Stampin' Up! right now, to SAVE money or to MAKE money…you will get a FREE project kit?!
We welcome anyone to our group…whether you just want to join for the discount or make this a business…we love all types of demonstrators!
