Stampin' Up! Grand Holiday 2013

Hi Folks,

Well what an exciting week it has been in Stampin' Up! land! Several of my stamping friends and I have had a goal this Stampin' Up! year of qualifying for the Stampin' Up! Annual Incentive Trip (now named Grand Holiday), and over the past week, several more of us have reached our goal, achieving enough points to take our partners on this once in a lifetime trip.

This year Stampin' Up! are taking us to Utah, USA for our Grand Holiday. We'll be staying at the very beautiful St Regis Deer Valley Resort at Park City and have the chance to visit the Stampin' Up! home office in Riverton and the manufacturing plant at Kanab!

Utah Grand Vacation

I am one excited little vegemite!!

We'll also have the opportunity to attend the 25th Anniversary Stampin' Up! Convention in Salt Lake City! I think our South Pacific Conventions are totally awesome, I can't wait to see how huge and amazing the US convention is! Better stock up in the flat shoe department before July!

I am so grateful to be part of an organisation that rewards it's hard workers with such an exciting opportunity and I can't wait to join dozens of my lovely stamping friends - including some that I only know through Facebook and haven't even met in person yet! It's such an honour and a privilege!

But before I even start packing, I need to thank all the lovely people who helped to get me there! Anyone who hosted a workshop, attended a class, placed an order or purchased a kit, my lovely stamp club ladies. You all contributed to me achieving this goal. Thank you!

Then there is my wonderful team the Aussie Inkpressionists, which has grown to 31. Your hard work in recruiting and promoting these past twelve months is a credit to you and is reflected in our teams growth. We have more than doubled in the last 12 months. Well done on a fine effort!

Then of course there are the behind the scenes supporters. My sister the chef, who came and did a stamping with food night for us, my friends who keep inviting me to have a table at their fundraising events, family & friends who always say the nicest things when they get a handmade card.

And last but not least, my number one supporter, Tony, who's patience and great marketing experience and business ideas over the past 5 years have definitely earned him a place on this trip too! I hope you enjoy every minute of it my lovely husband, you deserve to be spoiled by Stampin' Up! too!

Now there HAS to be a sales pitch at the bottom of such a post, so I am just going to say, if I can achieve this, whilst working mostly fulltime, a long way from home, then you can achieve this too!!

The year 2014 Grand Holiday is a Caribbean Cruise on Allure of the Seas.

Talk to me today about what you would need to do to come on an amazing holiday, paid for by Stampin' Up! Our Sale-a-bration Starter Kit special is on only until the 22nd March. Don't wait, call me today!

Kathryn you so deserve to have qualified for this trip!! You are amazing and have worked so hard to build up a fantastic, enthusiastic and motivated team. I remember your first Stampin' Up event and how excited you were when you discovered this company. It was a match made in heaven. :-) So CONGRATULATIONS!! And to Tony, thank you for being the best husband for my gorgeous friend. You are a great team, and will have a ball on this trip. Now I had better stop as I am getting all teary (bloomin' drugs!). Congratulations again and watch out Utah! Josie xox
