and technically, it hasn't officially even started! My friend Sue & I arrived yesterday and went for dinner with other demonstrator friends that we haven't seen since January (at Stampin' Up!'s Leadership conference). Great fun catching up with them!!
Sue & I with the sign at the entrance to Stampin' Up!'s home office.
We took a bus ride to tour Stampin' Up! headquarters – viewed different areas of the home office including the large distribution centre. It was fascinating to see how automated the line is – boxes will roll along the conveyor belt and stop off at the correct spot for the items to be picked off the shelf and placed inside. Once the order is fully completed, the box is weighed to make sure everything is inside! Neat to see.
Here's a cute set of the purses from the Petite Purse Bigz die. Love how they made the little flowers out of circle punches – how cute and easy is that??!! Don't be surprised if you see them show up on a project at one of my future classes LOL!!
I'll be posting more ideas and inspiration from Convention over the next while. I will be sharing them in person with my demonstrator team members at our get together on July 28th – if you'd like to join us, please contact me for more information!
