June convention NEWS!

At convention, I finally caught up with Shelli for a nice photo ... She is so lovely, so generous with her time. I wanted to congratulate on becoming the grandma of twins recently. The theme for this years convention was "I AM..."
Shelli shared her answer ... I am grateful.
"It isn't happiness that makes you grateful, rather gratitude that makes us happy."
She talked about Doing things "my way" (which just happpens to be the global campaign this year).
She inspired us to feel good about what you do well, and what you want to do in your life. Reflecting on your individual talents and ability to be whomever we want to be.
 This is a photo of Shelli on stage making some cards - she was incredibly funny as she fumbled her way through a project that she found had products on it that are not available in Australia... maybe it was subconsciously on purpose as she announced we will have huge changes to our Catalogue in September this year!! We will have one  annual catalogue and seasonal catys that last for 5 months each, this coming year!
The summer season caty starts on 1 Sept to 31 Jan ...
The Autumn season caty will go from 1 Feb to 30 June and then the next Annual catalogue will come out on the 1st July 2013 and it will be 30 pages larger to fit all the new products that we've been asking for.
Here is Ellen, Linda and I in the front rows enjoying the general session. Stampin' Up is continually growing through us, as we love what we do and we are sharing what we love.
Shelli gave us the quote:
 "Insanity is doing things over and over again and expecting different results."
So the future at stampin' Up! is all about options, personalisation and customisation, value and relationships.
Hence the customisation of the Starter Kit being changed.
You can now pay $169 for your starter kit and order up to $235 worth of any product in the catalogue AND shipping is free on your starter kit order.
Why doesn't everyone do that?
Well you can ... the starter kit is fully customisable so you can get what ever you want ... a Simply scoring tool with all the attachments, or the Big shot with your choice of dies and embossing folders.
I want it!
Give me a call if you want it to ... I am planning my accomodation and flight to Brisbane's Convention next year do you want to come?
Some Stampin' Up! trivia for you:
Did you know the most popular stampset this year has been the 4 frames stampset?
The most popular product suite was "Under the Big top"!
70% of all stampsets sold were Clear mounted, as opposed to 30% wood mount sold.
