Rising Star Matchbox & Convention Highlights

I'm back from Convention! What a blast! I enjoyed spending the week with members of my downline. We learned lots -- great business tips, new project ideas and techniques -- and celebrated lots!


Before I left, I made up this little matchbox to give to my downline with a little bracelet. I forgot to take a picture of the bracelet. Anyway, you know who loves jewelry -- Ms Stacey Schafer. We were beyond thrilled on check-in day to learn that she made Founder's Circle and was one of the Top 15 Rising Stars (demonstrators in their first full year)!! I felt like such a proud mom -- I was CRYING at the Awards Booth! Can you believe I actually had to talk her into even signing up!?! After I helped her with her first open house, she just took off...and on Awards Night was recognized as #13 in the Rising Star category. Way to go, Stacey!!

If you've been thinking about becoming a demonstrator, now is a great time! The $85 Mini Kit makes this opportunity very affordable. Click here for all the details and find out about my special bonus gift if you sign up by August 31. I would love to help YOU become the next Rising Star!

Here's a photo of all the Ju-bilant Stampers who attended Convention this year. We had so much fun! Would you like to join us next year?

Here's a picture of me and my Mom after we walked on stage together for the Southern Caribbean Incentive Trip. I am soooo excited that we get to go together!

Back to that little matchbox...I used the Matchbox die for the Big Shot and added some strips of window sheet to the inside side of the box to make the stars pop up when you open the box. (Side note: use sticky strip for this!)

Supplies: Starring You, Crushed Curry marker/ink & cardstock, Melon Mambo marker & cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP, Large Oval Punch, Scalloped Oval Punch, Small Star Punch, Window Sheets, Matchbox die for the Big Shot

Love this cute little box!! How awesome that the stars "rise"!!! :D
I really like the colors of the little box. I'm so happy I got to go to Convention and be in that pic as your downline! :)
(PS I totally rethought my Holiday Mini order, and even tho SU is gonna hate me, I figured out what to exchange for stuff I'll actually use to build my business. Including returning the Doctor's Bag. :P)
