I just got back from Stampin’ Up’s annual Leadership event in Orlando, FL. Wow, is all I can say! We had such a great time! this first picture is at our Advisory Board Reunion breakfast, with Shelli Gardner and Amy Swartz. The second is of my friend Leasa Williams and I at the SU Manager’s Reception, we were (and probably always will be) Thing 1 & Thing 2 from Dr. Suess’ “The Cat in the Hat”.
We got to be the first to receive a copy of the new 2009 Spring / Summer Catalog and it is awesome. It will be officially released on Jan 19, until then I’m not allowed to give any “sneak peeks”…you can purchase a copy here >.
Some big announcements were made here, one being a new Digital Scrapbooking line called “My Digital Studio” that will be released later in 2009! It looks amazing, can’t wait!! The Big Shot has some amazing new dies, including one that has a movable window that coordinates with our Curly Label punch…again wow!
The Manager’s Reception was held at Universal Studios – Islands of Adventure. Stampin’ Up rented out Marvel Island. It was amazing for me, I’m a complete roller coaster junkie and not having to wait in any lines was like a dream come true. I rode the Hulk coaster 9 times, only to have to hand my crown over to my friends Meg Loven, Jen Bailey and Rich Jutkins who rode 15 times!!
