Leadership 2015: Day 1 Highlights

I made it to Orlando late on Wednesday and today was the first day of the Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference. Today was mostly "business" -- we talked a lot about the new compensation plan and the change in corporate events. We finished up the day with a demonstration from Shelli Gardner. It was very entertaining and even more so inspiring. I loved all of the projects that she shared. Here are just a few of my favorite ones.

 
This card created with the Painted Petals stamp set was "amazingly amazing"! Shelli said you have to be very patient, but it looked fairly easy. Simple stamp the images in classic ink and then spritz with water to get the ink to run. That's where the patience part comes in, you need to let each color dry before you do the next one.
This next card was created with the flower stamps in the Petal Potpourri stamp set. I never thought the layer them on top of the each other. I love the masking technique used to add layers of flowers on this card.
Tonight, we had Manager's Reception at Disney's Hollywood Studios. I think I missed out on a lot of photo ops because I don't have many pictures to share. We enjoyed the Fantasmic water show and then had access to two rides and a fabulous dessert bar. It was a fun night!
