I love attending Stampin' Up! events and viewing the incredible displays of projects from the home office. Check out this apple, created with six layers of cardstock rosettes. This project can be easily reproduced using the new Designer Rosette die for the Big Shot. Just trim down the cardstock to different widths to create the varying size rosettes for each layer of the apple.
Watch this video from Stampin' Up! to see the Designer Rosette die in action:
I love going to Stampin' Up! events because I come home feeling inspired and motivated to try new things in my business. One of my favorite classes at Leadership 2012 was Patsy Waggoner's (and Donna Griffith's) presentation called "Retaining and Engaging Your Downline". I felt like Patsy was speaking right to me. I am in the same place she was a year ago, and I can only hope that by incorporating some of her ideas that I can enjoy the same downline growth that she has. I'm going to start by sending a survey to my downline to get some feedback about what they want.
Which reminds me of another great presentation by Brian Pilling called "Sharing the Stampin' Up! Opportunity". Really, Brian's presentation was more about the fundamentals of interacting with people and building a relationship...whether that be as a potential recruit or as a new friend. It really made me think about the various stages of developing any new relationship and the importance of listening and being aware of the needs of others.
Is it crazy that I am already looking forward to the next Stampin' Up! Event!? I hope you'll join me!
