I am excited, in shock, and humbled. A little tired from a late night last night and just really, really happy. I found out yesterday morning that I will be receiving the Rising Star award, an honor that just five first year Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from across the country will be receiving at our Annual Convention in Salt Lake City next month.
In the same conversation, the Business Development Advisor who I work with at the Stampin’ Up! Home Office said, ‘Do you know you’re really close to earning the incentive trip?’ Awkward pause…and then I said ‘Uh…REALLY?’
I had no idea! Thinking back, I knew that IF I achieved Rising Star, I would be close to earning the incentive trip, but it definitely wouldn’t be guaranteed. So to make a long story short, I worked hard yesterday, a few of my team members worked hard yesterday, and guess what? I earned the incentive trip!
It’s hard to believe that in my first year with Stampin’ Up!, I have achieved so much. There is so much potential with the company and with our products, that it makes my job easy (or easier at least)!
I will be sharing more in the future about the Rising Star award and the incentive trip, but for now I need to share today’s project! I like to offer incentives to my team members, and right now I owe some of them some cash! I couldn’t just hand them plain cash, I had to pretty it up a little.
I made these cute pockets using our gift box punch board. They are sized at 3″ x 5 1/2″ to be the right size to hold money. If you wanted the money to slide all the way inside, they would need to be 3″ x 6 1/2″.
I used our new Envelope Paper as well as the Gold Soiree specialty paper, which just happens to be on clearance right now.
I cannot thank my team members and customers enough for helping me earn these awards! Since I don’t know how to adequately do so, I’ll simply say, ‘Thank you.’
