Rally to Atlanta & our 2nd “Silver Elite Retreat”


PALS RALLY TO ATLANTA!  I will be traveling to Atalanta Nov. 5 for the Stampin’ Up! On-Stage Local event.  This decision was made based on the poll results, below (Atlanta was the top choice) by the Pals on our private Facebook chat.  There will be additional Pals events as well as Brian King & Pam Morris’ World Cardmaking Day event to make it well worth your while to travel and attend.  I 100% support anyone attending one of the alternate cities if that is more feasible.  

OnStage Registration Opens at 9 AM (MT) for Silver Elite and above; open registration at 10:00 AM (MT).  Learn more HERE.

SECOND ANNUAL SILVER ELITE RETREAT!  Lisa Pretto and I are offering a very special day and overnight for Pals (and Lisa’s qualifying downline members) that have have reached the Stampin’ Up! level of Silver Elite or higher as of October 1, 2016 (the first day of the new Stampin’ Up! year).

The Silver Elite Retreat is open to ALL levels of my downline who qualify as of October 1. Qualifiers will be responsible for all costs of their transportation to Atlanta, GA. Lisa and I will be in charge of pampering and pillow gifts and as well as covering the costs of lodging and food Saturday night.  Sunday morning, breakfast is included (from the hotel) between 6:30 to 10:30 a.m.

Those who anticipate being at Silver Elite or higher (as of 10/1) and traveling to Atlanta for these events . . . you will be my guest in the additional rooms (2 double beds and 4 per room) on Saturday (only) and we will hang out Saturday evening in the corner suite that Kris and I are staying in (which is larger).

>>  Silver Elite Retreat Date:  Saturday, Nov. 5

>>  Time:  Following our Pals pizza party on Saturday evening.  We should wrap up by 10:30 a.m. Sunday.

>>  Place:  Embassy Suites by Hilton

We are hoping this early announcement will help you make your travel plans (Brian and Pam’s World Cardmaking Day Event is separate, optional and not included — details here for the World Cardmaking Day Event) and offer the boost some of you might want to reach Silver Elite (or higher) as of Oct. 1.


For those who plan to be Silver Elite or higher AS OF 10/1 (remember your title will be updated as of that date), you are invited to our 2nd Annual Pals Silver Elite Retreat in Atlanta. We will hang out the night of Nov. 5 and I’ll pay for your shared room. Travel and other costs are on your own. If you can’t attend (we will miss you), I will mail you the pillow gifts after the retreat. Like me, some of you are planners so here’s what you will be receiving: It’s a Celebration stamp set in clear mount, Fancy Frost Sequins, & 3/8″ Glitter Ribbon Combo Pack (pp. 37-38 of the holiday catalog).
