Stampin’ Up’ Convention, Sydney 2010: Day one

Published by under cards | May 22 2010

Would you believe it if I say WOW what a day? Our first full day here at Convention was fantastic. We got to the Sydney Convention Centre at about 8am to register and then collected our Convention bags which were filled with goodies such as NEW stamp sets, rubons, a Stampin' Up! cap, pen, and other fun treats. I was shocked – to say the least – to learn that I am one of the top 25 Demonstrators in Australia! I knew our little team was getting lots of awards this year but that one was totally unexpected! The best news is that Maureen, my gorgeous downline, will also be recognised as a Demonstrator of the Year at our Awards night on Saturday. WooHoo Maureen!!

After registering, we swapped cards and chatted with other demonstrators and then went  shopping at Memento Mall. This is a room filled with gorgeous exclusive Stampin' Up! merchandise like drink bottles, pens, shirts, even beach towels! I have NO idea how all my stuff is going to fit in the suitcase, and I strongly suspect I'll be over the weight limit allowed on the plane. LOL. Nah, we'll manage.

The general session in the morning was interesting and entertaining, and we learned a lot about some exciting things that will be happening in the future.

Wonderful news:  until the end of July 2010 you can join Stampin' Up! for only $259 – which represents a 20% reduction in the Starter Kit price.

This is amazing value when you consider that the kit is valued at nearly $600. Not only that, you'll be invited to our bi-annual whole team stamping day on 3rd of July, which is kind of like our very own mini convention. It's the best fun, with fellow demonstrators coming from far and wide to stamp, eat and chat together.  

We had a yummy lunch and a little more Memento Mall shopping before spending a couple of hours stamping. Could it get any better than this?
