Convention 2011 and a couple of announcements

Convention in Melbourne was a blast.  Three days focussing entirely on cardmaking and all things Stampin Up!  No matter what your level of interest, Convention is so inspiring for Hobby Demonstrators and Career demonstrators alike.  Scroll down to see some photos and some fantastic announcements!

This is a little gift from one of my roomies, Felicity.  Our group of demonstrators is called the Paper Angels so she found these cute angel pendants.  Isn't the packaging adorable?

A shot of the stage.  See the huge wooden stamps?  This is Shelli, the CEO of Stampin' Up! who is a wonderful, warm and generous lady.  The motto for this year's convention was "Share what you love" which was very fitting!
This is Bonnie Thurber, Director of Demonstrator training.  It's worth going to Convention just to see her!  At this stage she was demonstrating her version of Eugenie's wedding hat.  She is the funniest presenter you'll ever meet.
Me, Liz (head Paper Angel), Felicity, Gaye and Colleen.  These were my roomies (except for Liz who was next door.)

This was our dessert at the yummy dinner on the final night.  SU! has been in Australia for five years now, hence the chocolate 5 on top.
Next year's Convention will be in Canberra from May 31 to June 2nd.  If you would like to be part of this inspiring event start putting your pennies aside.  It's worth every cent and you'll come away inspired creatively, personally and professionally.  If you'd like a smaller version of Convention, Regional Training will be in Brisbane on November 5th.  Want to join Stampin' Up!?  Why wouldn't you?  Email me on or phone me on 07 55 765 469.

NOW onto two special announcements....

ABNs no longer needed
One of the best pieces of news from Convention is that effective immediately, new recruits will no longer need an ABN (Australian Business Number) to become a demonstrator.  (Once a demonstrator starts getting bonus cheques over $500 a month, an ABN will be required.)  Easy!  I know that for many people the ABN caused much hesitation to those wanting to sign up. 

Would you like an extra $70 in hostess benefits?
Host or place a workshop order between 23rd May and the end of June 2011 that reaches $450 in sales (before shipping & handling).  You will receive the usual Level 1 hostess stamp set and $40 to spend on anything you like PLUS a bonus $70 to spend too. So that's a total of $110 of product for free.

Contact me if you would like to place an order or if you want some information about joining.
