Leadership 2012- San Antonio

Before I start, I have to apologize for not posting much lately. With moving, the holidays, and getting ready for Leadership, there just haven't been enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do. I hope that will change now that things are calming down around here! Thanks for not giving up on me!

I was just at Stampin' Up!'s Leadership Conference last week. It was AWESOME! I enjoy Convention, but there are thousands of people there. Leadership is much smaller (I heard around 1300 this year) and more intimite. It's just a totally different atmosphere and I love it! While Convention is open to all demonstrators, Leadership is for those who are actively building their business and have downline. The training we receive is more business building rather than just product-oriented. But there's still lots of stamping and cool ideas! Including an announcement about a NEW product- The Simply Scored Diagonal Plate! Woohoo! I can’t wait to order this! Now we’ll be able to make diagonal score lines! It will be great for making envelopes and lots of other things!

The other big announcement was the changes to our catalogs! In a nutshell, starting June 1, 2012, Stampin' Up! will release one annual catalog, comparable to (but slightly smaller than) the current Idea Book & Catalog, and two seasonal catalogs, comparable to (but larger than) the current mini catalogs.

Annual Catalog
  • The annual catalog will run from June 1, 2012 through May 31, 2013.
  • The annual catalog will be reduced from over 240 pages in the current Idea Book & Catalog to 208 pages.
  • The annual catalog will be printed on lighter-weight paper.
  • Stamp sets will still be shown at actual size and sample projects will still be shown.
  • D├ęcor Elements and Simply Adorned product lines will be discontinued.

Seasonal Catalogs
  • The Occasions, Summer, and Holiday Mini Catalogs will be replaced by two seasonal catalogs called the Holiday Catalog and the Spring Catalog.
    • The first Holiday Catalog will run from August 1, 2012 through the beginning of January, 2013
    • The first Spring Catalog will run from the beginning of January, 2013 through May 31, 2013.
  • The seasonal catalogs will be larger in both size (8 1/2" x 11") and page count (about 40 pages) than the current mini catalogs.
  • These new seasonal catalogs will give have a longer selling period for each than with the current mini catalogs (more time for you to buy) and more room to include seasonal-specific products (more things for you to buy).
Exciting! I can’t wait to see the new catalog!

Of course we had to visit the Alamo since we were in San Antonio!


The Riverwalk is beautiful and the weather was perfect almost every day- sunny and in the 70’s. Only 1 day of fog and light rain so it was cooler.

I can’t wait to find out where Leadership will be next year! And I’d love to have you join me! Now is the perfect time to start your Stampin’ Up! business- the Starter Kit is only $125 during Sale-A-Bration! Sign up today!
