Tic-Tac Treat Cover and the Creativate Team!

Happy Monday everyone!
I hope your weekend was as relaxing as mine turned out to be - a much needed break from the part-time job I've been working.....
I got to stamp, I worked on training for my downline team, spent time with my family, watched some sports (skating, wrestling and a bit of football too...) and I even got to go see a movie! I know that sounds busy, busy, but it was a whole lot of R-n-R for me!

I know I said I was going to blog yesterday about the new collaboration I've joined, the Creativate Team, and I know you'll understand when I tell you that I just needed to step away and enjoy the weekend with the people I love most. That's what I enjoy so much about what I do with SU! - the ability to step out every now and again and feed the non-business parts of my life.

So today I'm gonna share this cute project with you and I'll explain what this whole "Creativate Team" is that I'm so stoked about. Be sure to read to the end, it'll be WORTH it!

This adorable Tic-Tac Cover was created by one of the Creativate Team members, Lisa Curcio. She gave each of us one during our recent retreat in Kansas City. I thought it was just too cute not to share! (and ps. the grape tic-tacs are really good!)

Lisa obviously coordinated her colors for the project with the tic-tacs and she used products from the Have a Cuppa Suite in the Occasions Catalog to create the design. 

Here are the measurements and instructions to make the cover base: 
Cut cardstock at 3" x 4 1/2". 
Score at 2" and again at 2 5/8". 
Fold around the tic-tac container and adhere with Fast Fuse. 
Decorate as desired!

Here's a supply list for you:

NOW for what I'm really excited about:


Back in September 2015, I along with several demonstrator friends decided that we needed to begin a collaboration that would not only fill a need for our downline teams, but would empower them as well. 
And not only empower them, but us too.
We wanted to provide business training, resources - both creative and business focused, and inspiration to our collective downline teams. 
Our mission statement: 
"Defining the purpose and heart of our Stampin' Up! businesses by cultivating strategies for growth, leadership and sharing."

At that time, we began building libraries of resources based on 150 combined years of SU! business experience. 
Resources that would be available at NO COST to our downline team members.

In mid-January, we all met up for our first ever Creativate Retreat/Summit at the home of one of our members, Mimi Henwood in Kansas. 

The sign on the wall that we are pointing to sums up our group and our purpose perfectly: 
"There will always be a reason why you meet people. 
Either you need them to change your life or
you're the one that will change theirs."

You may or may not recognize the faces in this photo. 
They are all amazing women and fabulous business women. 
And they are all my friends. 
We not only share a love for SU!, but we share a love for each other, and one other - most important thing - in common; 
Our faith in Christ is at the center of our lives and our group. 

During our retreat, we all checked our egos at the door and brought our ideas, strengths, weaknesses, joys, sorrows, success and struggles to the table. 
We laid our hearts open to each other and set the foundation for a solid future with SU! for ourselves and our downlines. 

You may be asking "Why is this important for ME to know?"
Well, it's simple. 

When you belong to SU!, who you choose as your Stampin' Up! Upline Leader is important. 
No matter if you are a business builder or someone who belongs to SU! for the fun and crafting experience. 
You need to know that when you are a part of my downline team - or any of our downlines - that you will be supported and encouraged and offered resources that will contribute to your success should you choose to take advantage of what's offered. 

And all of that is FREELY given - because our whole goal, our whole purpose is to see you grow and succeed and enjoy your time with SU! 
Sharing what you love to do with others because you can.

So, if you're considering becoming part of SU! - at whatever level of interest - just know that when you join my team, you're getting not only me and my 23 years total of direct sales experience, but you're getting a family of demonstrators, and a community that will love and support you along with pooled resources that will guide you each step of the way. 
No one walks alone on my team.
