Party Plan Conference

Well what a fantastic day I had yesterday at the Party Plan Conference and Awards! Julie Spencer, Helen Clifford, Ali Smith and Cath Carey from my team were by my side helping to promote Stampin' Up! as well as networking with all the other Party Planners at the event.

It was a busy day but I had such fun chatting with so many ladies, picking up tips and arranging party swaps with each other, as well as attending some very inspirational, motivational and brilliant seminars. Myself and my team learnt a lot and I can't wait to put what I've learnt into my business.

Unfortunately I wasn't the winner of the 'Best Visual Merchandiser' at the Awards but I'm still very pleased to have been picked as a finalist and I'm very proud of how I present Stampin' Up!  with a professional and eye catching display.

Here's a few photo's taken during the day.

2 of my fabulous team members - Julie Spencer and Helen Clifford 

 Some of the other Exhibitors...

Karen and Lynn from Ann Summers.
 Karen had a go at stamping which she's never done before and Lynn is hoping to come to my classes.
 Terry from Chocolate Craft at Home
 Citrus 7
They sell display items. I bought a beautiful shabby chic display stand from them. You'll see that when I take my next set of photos.
 Vitabella and Flexible Working Recruitment
 Jamie at Home
Fiona and another consultant (sorry I couldn't remember her name).
Now if you fancy a Jamie at Home party then Fiona is the lady to get in touch with. You know when you meet someone and instantly hit it off? Well Fiona was that lady for me. We're doing a party swap and I can promise you, you'll have a lot of fun with her, she's fabulous. She's recently moved to Corfe Castle and would love to meet new people in the area. You can contact her at
 Sheila & Liz from Scentsy
Again these ladies were so lovely and Ali is having a party swap with them next month.
I can't wait! Love the sample smells we received in their goodie bags. I so need Snowberry!

And that was just a few of the stalls. There was so much more there.

We held a FREE Prize Draw during the day and the winner was
Joanne Howard from the Hair Party Company.
Joanne was at the Awards last night to receive the prize.

Being a Party Planner is so much fun! If you'd like to discuss the opportunity of becoming a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and join in the fun then please email me at
I will give you all the support you require at whatever level and pace you want to take your Demoship.

My next Quarterly Team Training event is 15th April and I've asked one of the presenters at yesterdays Conference to come along to give a talk. This lady has been in Direct Sales for 27 years and has a wealth of knowledge. I was truelly blown away with how inspirational this lady is. If you'd like to join the team or just thinking about joining, the information you'll gain from this lady will without a doubt help with the first steps on your journey to a flying start.

With Sale-a-bration until 31st March purchase the Starter Kit for  only £119 and as an added bonus choose an additional stamp set of your choice bringing the total value of the kit to almost £300.

This is the best time to join Stampin' Up!

That's for me today. I've some home life to fit in.

See you very soon!
