Stampin' Up! Events

Sneak Peek- Stampin' Up! On Stage Event- Richmond, VA

This past weekend, I traveled to Richmond, VA with my bf, Raelene. We attended one of Stampin' Up's regional events for demonstrators only.

I have to say, we had so much fun- as we always do at these amazing training opportunities that Stampin' Up provides for us.

We received so many gifts! I attended a leaders event on Friday night, called Centre Stage. In addition to a fabulous dinner and guest speaker, we received a couple great gifts. This apron was one of them... If you're local, you'll see me sporting this darling smock very soon. Even though, my bff, Raelene wasn't able to attend, I didn't forget about her... I saved my double chocolate cake just for her!

Raelene made this adorable gift for me. She's got some mad skills and I love everything she creates. Isn't this darling gift box and post it note pad, gorgeous?

Stampin Up Sample Boards and More Peeks at the New Catalog

I know I said that I wrapped up my last post on the Stampin' Up! On Stage, Convention. But, this is all about the stamps, samples and creative ideas that were shared.

I have some cool scrapbook pages to share, that were made with Stampin' Up's Project Life kits and that were displayed on the many display boards at Convention. Plus, an adorable surprise at the end of my post.

I'll start with this cute spread...

IMG_8200

I love this one. Its so cheerful and bright.

IMG_8201

Don't you just love all the new Project Life cards and elements?

IMG_8153

Here's a little peek at some new designers series paper that will be in the Stampin Up Annual Catalog- 2016-2017. Stunning!

IMG_8174

Ok, so this is a teaser from the New Catalog... one of my favorite new sets, Baby Bear. I was able to give this set away, to some lucky demonstrators, as my prize patrol during my presentation. Too bad, I didn't get to keep one!

  IMG_8163

That's all for now, folks. I've got to work on my upcoming "Kim's Card Class" and also my Team Meeting and 2 workshops, coming up this week.... not to mention my son and my dads birthday parties!

Until the next time...

Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!

Stampin' Up! On Stage Convention- Wrapping it Up

One last post about my trip to SLC and the Stampin' Up! On Stage Convention.

There was so much to see and do over the 7 days that I was in SLC. So many friends to see and spend time with, so much to learn and many friends and accomplishments to celebrate.

First stop after I landed was a Diners Drive-Ins and Dives place called the Blue Plate Diner.

IMG_7582

It was early morning, so I had the Veggie Omlet- it was as big as my head!

IMG_7579

Next, it was off to the Salt Palace Convention Center for rehearsal and hanging with the SU staff backstage. It was so much fun and really helped me relax before my live presentation.

IMG_7592

The night before the kick off of Convention, my friends, Cindy, Linda and I had a Premiere Kick Off Party to celebrate our teams. The theme was "Apple of My Eye" because our girls definitely are that!

IMG_7683

Here they all are at our cute apple themed table.

Our demonstrators friends from Hawaii, are ready for the Opening Session of Convention. Don't Martha, Cindy and Zeny look awesome in their matching Hawaiian shirts?

It's so fun to get to see friends that we don't see often. This is our friend Dawn from Michigan.

There was a special dinner for Silver Elites and above that night and a  dueling piano show that was so fun and hilarious!

It was a great black and white affair at the Grand America Hotel.

My presentation was the following morning.

Next was our Advisory Board Alumni Dinner at Gracies in SLC. I celebrated with my Advisory Board sisters from both years that I served, and all of the other Alumni over the past 25 years.

My AB sisters Cindy and Linda...

and Lisa and Robyn.

My friends, Cindy, Linda and I celebrated our Sales Milestones that day. We all reached our goals of $500,000, $600,000 and $1 million in personal career sales, respectively.

IMG_8452

That evening we celebrated, "Million Dollar Linda" with a surprise dinner at the amazing Roof Restuarant in SLC.
