Stampin' Up! Convention 2011
We ran the presentation like a workshop, dropping in and out of the scenario to share our tips. One part of my section included projects to generate bookings and hostess gifts and so I was thrilled to share this project with my fellow demos and now you. I've called it Maggie's Box as the idea was given to me by my fellow Miss Big Shot winner Maggie from Germany. She used this box to show her customers the versatility of the Big Shot and isn't it cute. It uses the milk carton die and is so obvious it's not obvious if that makes sense. Sometimes we need to think outside the box or alter the die!!! That's what Maggie did. You only use the part of the die you need to make the box and then just cut your own lid. It makes boxes for wedding favours or Christmas table gifts so easy and you can see from these few examples how you can change the identity of the box to suit your needs.
The awards dinner took place on Friday evening and I had set myself a target to try and get a little higher in the demo of the year top 25 list. Last year I was 11th and would have been happy with 10th, but was over the moon to reach 6th Place. However the highlight for me was to watch the joy, and delight on the face of my dear friend Emma when she discovered that she too was in the top 25. Over the past year Emma has faced some tough personal challenges and so to maitain her business at the same time is a fantastic achievement. Both of us also cheered for our other lovely team mate Bridgette when her name was called for a sales award. Bridgette has worked really hard to grow her part of Stampin' Up! and has also achieved much in the last 12 months. Onwards and upwards my friends as we put The Tantalizing Stampers on the map.
I have more pics to share and will be back, but am still catching up on life having driven to and from Paris. Until next time.
