It’s been more busy busy around our house lately and I have lots to blog so you may be pleased to find lots of new posts over the next few days if you check back!! I have just returned from our 2015 Stampin’ Up! Australia convention that was held just down the road on the Gold Coast! We had a ball I thought I’d share with you a few highlights, complete with a few sneak peaks at new products coming in the next Stampin’ Up! Annual catalogue!
Convention began for many people with Managers Reception. This is an afternoon of leadership sessions for those demonstrators who’ve achieved the level of Manager and above. Then Stampin’ Up! treated us to a fun evening at Australia Spectacular for dinner and a show.
We had also been able to pick up our convention bag (SU give us a new bag each year) which I love!
And on Thursday convention began!
Over the course of the next few days we saw and heard about fantastic new business and crafting ideas, we were the first in the WORLD to receive the new Stampin’ Up! catalogue and see the new In Colours and amazing products and the best thing about convention – hanging out with other demonstrators! I get to catch up with my team members from around Australia, as well as other demonstrators, got to spend time with fantastic friends as well as make new ones! I even presented a talk up on stage on holding classes.
We love listening to the Stampin’ Up! staff who visit us from America – particularly Bonnie and Shannon!
Can’t wait to get our hands on some of the fantastic new Stampin’ Up! kits and products! Can you believe that the cake above is a kit that includes everything ready for you!?
Check out a sneaky peak of the new in colours above!…and some of my favourite people 🙂
We also had a fantastic awards night and after party on the Friday night. I was thrilled to have earnt the Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip again this year (to Hawaii) as well as awards for recruiting and leadership – while I was surprised to see that I was in the top 5 again for Leadership again this year – I really do have the most fantastic team of demonstrators who continue to perform year after year! I haven’t missed a year of awards since Stampin’ Up! started here in Australia in 2006! I’m so lucky to be a part of such a fantastic company as well as have the most fantastic team of Demonstrators in Australia and the best part of awards night really is cheering for the other members of our team who’ve achieved fantastic awards for themselves!!
Well that’s a quick re-cap of convention, though I could never share in a blog post just how fanstastic convention is as well as being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. Have you ever thought of joining us? Let me know and I’d love to answer all your questions and to help you achieve whatever it is that you would like from Stampin’ Up!

I’ll be back in tomorrow to share some of the fun Pillow Gifts that were a part of our convention this year!
