One of the highlights of the Founder's Circle Retreat is our bus trip from St. George to the Stampin' Up! Manufacturing Facility in Kanab, UT!  Every year there is something new to see and more to learn about the creation of our rubber stamps!

This year we decided as a Founder's Circle group to "flash mob" the amazing employees and bring them treats, cards, signs and tokens of our appreciation for them!  As we got off the bus and were greeted by all of the amazing employees, we handed them treats and goodies and signs.. it was so fun to see them smile!! I created about 70 signs in My Digital Studio and had them printed through our My Digital Studio print service and we handed them out.

When we first arrived, our group was treated to a super fun Make & Take project featuring the brand new Hello December Project Life by Stampin' Up! kit!  You are going to find this kit in the new Holiday Supplement coming out in Oct!!  If you do not have a demonstrator and would like one of those supplements, let me know.
