Leadership Gifts!

I received some handmade gifts from a couple gals at Leadership and wanted to show off their creativity!


Karla Anders made me this cute little Post-It Note Holder!


Debbie Naylor made me this cute little goodie box and also these great earrings.  They are made with Stampin' Up! Filigree Designer Brads and our new Epoxy Brads from the Occasions Mini Catalog!  I wore them at Leadership and got lots of nice compliments!


This cute little candy bag holder was made for me by Marlene Salvato!  There was a lot more candy in the cello bag, but some of it was York Peppermint Patties, and I just had to eat those!!


Thanks gals for the great gifts!  Can't wait to see you at Convention!

Stampin’ Up! Leadership Goodies!

One of the things that I love about Leadership is that we always get a great bag!  And this year was no exception.  In fact, this may be my favorite Leadership bag so far.


My picture just does not do this great bag justice.  I love the colors and the "Do What You Love" design!


I also got a Do What You Love journal from my SAM.


We also got several free stamp sets!  Love them all!!


The Managers Reception was held at the Corona Ranch and we received the Love Bandit
stamp set as a gift that night.



In addition to the gifts that we received, we had the opportunity to buy some logo items in the Stampin' Up! Memento Mall.  I bought the Designer Ribbon Watch, some Sweet Pea Reusable Shopping Bags…


And the Pink Flamingo Beach Towel and Flip Flops!  Too cute!


If you would like information on attending Leadership and partaking in all the fun,
please feel free to call or email me!

Back from Leadership!

Just got back home late last night after being gone at the annual Stampin' Up! Leadership conference!  What a wonderful time I had!  Learning new leadership ideas, stamping techniques, and meeting old and new friends!  I'll be posting bits of what I learned and saw all week, so please check back!


Here is a picture of me and my friend Dawn Rapsas from New Jersey!  We are in front of the Memento Mall and are holding our new Leadership bags!  I'll be posting more pictures of the great things we received as well as some of the items we were able to purchase in the Memento Mall!


I was very happy that my friend and downline, Naoko was able to attend Leadership too!  Here with are with Shelli Gardner, the CEO and Co-founder of Stampin' Up!


Here I am with Bonnie Thurber who is the Director of Demonstrator Training, but more important to me, a wonderful friend!  Bonnie and I met at Founders Circle last year, hit it off and are friends for life!


Here are some pictures of other new and old friends from the trip!

I call these gals the Gilbert Girls!  I met them for the first time this trip and feel like they are friends for life!


Here I am with Rhonda Morgan.  Rhonda presented at the Regionals on Saturday and what a fabulous job she did.  I just have to have everything she demonstrated!!



Here Naoko and I are with Pam Morgan the VP of Demonstrator Relations!  In the second picture I'm holding a cute little milk carton that Pam made for me!  So cute!!


Here are Tracy and Diana who are new friends from this trip!  Diana also presented and did a fabulous job!  I'll be ordering what she demonstrated with the order that I started based on Rhonda's demonstration!!


And here are my fabulous Sisters in Stamping!  It was so wonderful seeing them and catching up!


Here we are at dinner on the last evening.  I met so many wonderful gals and I don't have pictures of them all, but hope to see them all again soon!!

Leadership Projects

 Sorry that it has taken me so long to post my Leadership make-n-take projects.  I was having too much fun at Leadership visiting with my friends and didn’t get my projects finished there.  Just got them finished at home the other day so here they are! 

This cute little purse uses the Good Friends stamp set, the Good Morning Sunshine Designer Series Paper and the On Board So Tweet chipboard!


Inside the purse we have three darling cards and a little box that contains ten tags.  All made using the above materials!  Call or email me if you’d like to order the supplies and instructions for this great project!

Leadership Conference


I haven’t posted for a couple days as I have been at the annual Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference!  The conference this year was held in Orlando, Florida!  I had a fabulous time, learned new Leadership skills, new stamping techniques, met new friends, and hung out with old friends, and just had a great time!

Here is a picture of me with Shelli Gardner the Co-founder and CEO of Stampin’ Up! and my friend Dawn Rapsas, who I met at Founder’s Circle in September.

We were at Universal Studios for the Managers Reception.  They left a portion of the park open for us and we got to ride the rides with no lines (I had just gotten of the Incredible Hulk roller coaster), have a yummy dinner, and hang out with friends!

Here is a picture of my dear friend Karla Anders and Shelli.  Karla had never met Shelli before, so I love this picture!  I met Karla last year at Leadership and we became fast friends and it feels like we’ve known each other forever, not just a year.  Her mom got us this sweet time share condo and we had three bedrooms and three bathrooms (you can never have enough bathrooms when women are trying to get ready in the morning). 


Here are my other two condo roommates, Jenn Sunada (a wonderful member of my downline attending her
first Leadership) ,and Deb Geier who I also met for the first time last year at Leadership! 
We enjoyed the great Florida seafood every chance we got as you can see!

I’ll be posting more Leadership pictures later and sharing some exciting news of things coming our way in the world of Stampin’ Up!
