Back from Convention

Published by under cards | May 15 2011

Well, we're home from a truly amazing 4 days away for our annual Stampin' Up! convention. The best ever! I have sooo much to share with you – gorgeous swaps and gifts, new ideas to share, and great news to celebrate about the awesome achievements of the girls in my team (you girls ROCK!). But, that will have to wait.

For now, I want to share two amazing pieces of news. Truly exciting, and I couldn't wait a minute longer to share them with you.



1. Extra Hostess Benefits (this is a serious WOW)

Hostesses with orders over $450 will receive an EXTRA $70 in hostess benefits!

No that is not a typo, but believe me I thought I misheard it when it was announced at Convention. LOL

What does this mean?

You will get $110+ and an exclusive hostess stamp set instead of the usual $40 in free product and hostess set. How seriously cool is that!?! This offer is for orders submitted between May 23 and June 30.

How can I help YOU take advantage of this offer?

* You have more days to choose from for a workshop. I've opened up extra days in my diary for workshops so nobody misses out, but contact me quickly to get your pick of dates. 

* If you are local, you are welcome to borrow one of my Book Party Bags so you can host your own catalogue party. Inside are a couple of Idea Book & Catalogues, product samples and some of my favourite finished cards. Just pass the Inspiration Bag around amongst your friends or craft group and any orders you collect will get you closer to all the extra $$$. Perfect if you can't fit in a workshop (even though workshops are much more fun!).



2. No longer need an ABN to join Stampin' Up!

Stampin' Up! have been working hard behind the scenes to make it quicker and easier for you to join us. You no longer need an ABN (Australian Business Number). WooHooo!!

You can join in a matter of minutes and start saving money on your Stampin' Up! purchases straight away. For more info click here. If you've been thinking about it (yes, you know I'm talking to you **wink wink**) then now is the perfect time. By getting the Starter Kit now you can also take advantage of the first piece of news up there – the extra $70 in freebies. Contact me for details.



For now I'm going to catch up on much needed sleep and hugs from the littlies, but I'll be back soon with all the Convention news. I couldn't be more excited and can't wait to share what I love!

Happy stamping,
