Leadership Day 2

Hello Stampers!  Here are some of the highlights from the last day of Leadership 2013!

We started off the morning in a General Session. 

P1130408-001Shelli Gardner taught us how to color the Flower Trim from the Spring catalog.  Very pretty!

Scott Nielsen reported all of the numbers from the past year.

They told about the new Single stamps (Assortment 3, Assortment 4) that will be coming out, and about the new Best of 25 Years monthly stamp sets that will be coming out.  There will be a new stamp set featured each month this year that will contain images from some of our favorite stamp sets from the last 25 years and will include a new, never seen before image each month.

Best of Jan

There will be a collectors card for you to keep track of all of the Best of stamp sets that you have purchased.  Once you have purchased 6 stamp sets, you will get to pick a FREE stamp set of your choosing!

Here's my lunch for today:

P1130462-001

P1130463-001YUM!

After lunch we had two more break out classes.  I attended Success Strategies to Empower Your Downline given by Holly Linford and Lyndsey Mahon.  It was fabulous and gave lots of good advice to train my team. 

I also attended Creating a Blueprint for Success given by Brandi Barnard and Meg Daves.  Another fabulous class giving ideas for being a successful demonstrator!

We closed the afternoon with our Closing Session.  More great information and FREE stuff!

Look at this picture of all of the FREE stuff I received at Leadership 2013!!!

P1130535-001
Wouldn't you love to attend with me next year?  Or even Convention this summer?  Just let me know and I can help you to make it a reality!

Thanks for reading!

New Single Stamps!

Hello Stampers!  Do you remember when Stampin' Up! offered some stamps individually?  Well, they are offering some more!

There are two more assortments available!  Take a look at them:

Assortment 3

Assortment 4

Remember, these won't be sent in our typical cases or packaging; they'll be packaged in cello bags.  This offer is available for clear-mount stamps only.  The stamps won't come with a Clear-Mount Block, and you'll need to buy a block separately if you don't already have one. The recommended block sizes can be found on the flyer.  There's no limit on how many pieces you can buy.  These stamps are only available through March 31, 2013, so get them while you can!

I'm so excited that they are offering these again!  These images are so cute!!!!
