Stampin' Up! Leadership 2012 - San Antonio, TX

  • Leadership – San Antonio Texas
  • Leadership Bag and Gift
  • Samples from Leadership Convention

This week I’m in San Antonio, Texas, with 1,400 of my fellow demonstrators for the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Convention followed on Saturday by a one-day Regional Stampin’ Up! event.

As always, Stampin’ Up! provided Convention bags and lots of prizes, surprises and give-aways to us.  This year the Leadership Convention bags were fabric, and held our free stamp sets, two free markers, Designer buttons, and ribbon.  Here’ what the bags look like.  Lots of pockets and Designer buttons holding the pockets closed when not in use. 


In addition, during our first day of Make & Takes, we were also given a matching journaling cover made from the same fabric.

The fabric theme was continued by Stampin' Up!, by dressing home-office make & take helpers in matching fabric aprons. 

 Each of the aprons was a different style. 

Why is it great to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator?  Besides running your own business, because at Conventions, the prize patrol is busy giving us free stamp sets from the Sale-a-bration catalog, a sneak peek set given every demonstrator from next year's catalog, which I cannot show your yet,  plus new larger basic half pearls, rhinestones, ruffled ribbon, a CD for My Digital Studio digital design software of all the Sale-A-Bration content, and a package of new Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper...whew! (Sale-a-bration begins January 24 where you can earn free products for every $50 you spend! or join as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator at the reduced rate of $125 to earn 20% discounts on Stampin' Up! products). 

Of course, Convention wouldn't be complete without Stampin' Up! showing us fun, unique ways to use these wonderful new projects. 

Here are a few of the displays showing samples made from these new products.

Over the next few days I'll be sharing more photos from Leadership Convention displays, card samples, and my swaps with other demonstrators.  I'm also attending Regional - a one-day event for demonstrators and guests, which follows Leadership Convention.
