Stampin’ Up! Leadership Fun and TWO New Offers

It’s oh so nice (but chilly) to be back home in Tucson after a wonderful 5 days in balmy Orlando, Florida for the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference.  A challenging hotel internet connection prevented me from getting this post off to you earlier today.  However, I’m excited to show you fun highlights of the conference along with the announcement of two NEW Stampin’ Up! offers (both start tomorrow, Jan. 14)!

Stampin’ Pretty Pals Kris Kilcoyne, ME, Pam Morris, Kylie Nicolosi and
Linda Callahan.  Back: Liz Hughes, Ann Schach, Ginger Toivonen, Brian
King, Dawn Tidd.  Our friend Nance Leedy (who took the photo) told us to
do the “Nana” pose and this is our interpretation.  There were 20 Stampin’ Pretty Pals that traveled to Orlando for the conference and enjoyed time together!

Brian King, Kylie Nicolosi and Debra Simonis were recognized for their promotions to Senior Supervisor within the past year.  Cindy Hall (Supervisor) and Dawn Tidd (Manager) were also recognized!  Go Pals!

Ride.  “Thrill” ride is an understatement.  Stampin’ Up! had the
entire Wizarding World of Harry Potter reserved for the Manager’s
Reception.  Just us.  No lines.  Cool.

    Awesome! Thank you so much for sharing.

    I had my doubts, but that Brian sure is a winner. His designs are great, dare I say it? Greater than the ‘Dude’ kit. But something simple to start is a good thing!!!! Now if we can only tear them away from the TV or computor games….hmmm, NAW, that’s MY time to stamp!!!!

  3. Love the new kits!! Great photos – thanks for sharing!

  4. All my favorite pictures! Glad you are home safe and sound! Enjoy your bed tonight!!!!

    Brian, at least, should have won the best jammie pose! At first I thought it was a dress and then I noticed the jammies and realized it was a robe! I love this little Dude kit – I have been making Valentine, St. Patrick’s Day and Easter cards today to be sent overseas to a National Guard unit. So hard to not make them too girly if the guy is to send them home! This stamp would have been perfect and the soldier could have added their own thought! It looks like everyone had a good time. Can’t wait to see more photos.

  6. 20 Pals what a great time that must have been! Congratulations to all for your accomplishments! Welcome Home Mary!

  7. Pretty funny. Love the musical accompaniment. Guys just want to have fun?

  8. Funny and entertaining.
