Stampin' Up! Leadership Overview

I was gone a couple of weeks ago to Orlando, Florida for Stampin' Up!'s Leadership conference.  It was beautiful and sunny but not exactly warm.  Better than Idaho weather but not exactly what I was hoping for!!

It was still green and gorgeous though.

About 1700 demonstrators gathered for business training and creativity and to catch up with friends we don't get to see very often.
Shelli Gardner Co-founder and CEO
 I was asked to demonstrate along with Jenny Peterson and Diana Gibbs in Demonstrator Theater on the main stage, which was just simply terrifying - there is no other word!  Here we are with the amazing Carrie Cudney from the home office who was absolutely delightful to work with. 

I was asked to talk about our Designer Series Paper and how I use it in my business.  I made a bunch of samples of stuff to show. 

Look, here I am larger than life on those BIG screens - eeek!!

This was the first of 3 projects I showed.  This one is using the Balloon Bash Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Birthday Bash stamp set.
After I was done demonstrating, they take all the projects to the Gathering Place and put them on display.  This is the crowd trying to take pictures...
...and me in the crowd trying to get to my own projects to take a picture!

  1. Way to go Becky and CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I LOVED seeing all of your pictures and especially loved seeing just how large and how situated the audience seating was along with your beautiful display of projects in the Gathering Place (I couldn't be there)! YOU were absolutely awesome and gosh, I see you as an accomplished pro and with no evidence of stage-fright-terror! :) I'm so excited for you and proud of your accomplishments. BTW, I saw you many times on the Live Streaming of the event, at home, it was such fun and so exciting! Thank you so much for all of your sharing; of the outside shots too, the staff, etc. Love, Love, Love it all! Cheers! Bravo! Well Done! Congratulations!!!! Have a happy week! :)

  2. You looked fabulous on those BIG screens. And I heard you did a great job Demo'ing (if that's a word) your projects. Of course b/c they were beautiful and so colorful.
