Many of our Cruise Stewards got to attend the national Stampin’ Up! Convention in Utah last week and had an amazing time. Some of the Catty Girls were meeting for the very first time, at least in person. Here’s Brooke Stockman, Connie Collins and Becky Roberts. Looks like Nancy Riley made it, too. Rumor has it Linda Heller, Lee Ann Greff, Kriss Huels, and Kay Kalthoff, were also there. And, like Nancy, Lori Heiling popped up in unlikely places.
We know our cruise stewards rock the crafting world, but how fun it is when other folks recognize them, too. I mean, really, if it had been the Oscars, we’d be saying our Cruise Stewards took a clean sweep of all the awards:
- the very coveted Artisan Award;
- Artisan Award finalists;
- Rising Stars;
- Demonstrators of the Year;
- top awards for recruiting, sales, and downline promotions;
- prestigious Founders Circle;
- and even the best homemade (and hilarious) commercial.
One of the most fun things about convention is viewing the fabulous displays of project samples.Yep, we’re busting our buttons with pride that one our Stewards was chosen by Stampin’ Up! to make samples for the display boards – and her samples are amazing!
Here’s Connie, Becky and Brooke, again, along with Angie Tieman. And, if you look very closely, there’s Linda McClain “hanging” out with Becky.
Luckily for all of us, the Catty Girls are blogging about the convention and posting the projects that helped make them part of Stampin’ Up! history. Check out our Stewards’ blogs (see sidebar on the right) for more details and to see their gorgeous, jaw-dropping projects.
Oh, and even more fun for all of us, the Cruise Stewards have started receiving their pre-order goodies for the upcoming holiday mini catalog and are playing with their new toys for the next Catty Cruise. The girls learned some new tricks and twists at the convention they’re anxious to share with everyone.
We are so very proud of our Stewards. Congratulations!
