Million Dollar Sales Milestone

My $1 Million Sales Milestone Celebration Trip!

As you may have notice, I haven't blog in a week.  That's because I took a break to enjoy my $1 Million Sales Milestone Trip to the Stampin' Up! home office!  I'm so glad I did, as I really wanted to be able to take in every moment. and that I did.  See beleow for photos of my day one experiences!

You might be wondering what I'm holding in my hand.  It's a million dollar stamp (both rubber and photopolymer) and a beautifully etched clear block.  What a lovely surprise!

What is this?  Two HUGE baskets of Stampin' Up! product.  Rett explained that this was their donation area and they had one ready to go out along with a letter.  He had me read the letter out loud.  It turned out to be a donation to a Girl Scout Council in Minnesota!  I was deeply touched by their generosity.  Girl Scouts was a very big part of my life growing up, as well as my girls as they grew up.

I had to get a shot of Shelli training Gene on the Stamparatus!  He was a good sport and stamped all 100 note cards and envelopes!

While stamping Shelli even thanked me for selecting "stamping with Sara & Shelli" as one of my activities.  Are you kidding...I wouldn't have missed it.  I felt like I was stamping with my BFF's.  It was so much fun and both Sara and Shelli were a delight to spend time with.

Here's the card we made.  I selected my favorite stamp set from the upcoming 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, Accented Blooms.  Along with my favorite, Note Cards & Envelopes.  As we stamped and colored, the coloring evolved into a simple and clean look, which is more my style.  I love it!  It's going out to my top 100 customers - watch for it soon!

Here's the stamping crew...thanks for an awesome time!

The day ended with dinner at the Paris Bistro with Corporate Team members, Jill and Paula. 

It was a perfect day from the incredible welcome at the door, the flowers, all the sweet hugs and congratulations we received through out the entire day, the donation baskets, a fun lunch, product sneak peeks, treats everywhere and stamping with my besties!  It couldn't have been better.  We enjoyed every minute - thank you Stampin' Up!

I do have more pictures, which I'll share tomorrow. 

Enjoy~Dawn O

Sharing On Stage: Make & Takes, CentreStage & Celebration!

I had so much fun this past weekend.  I got to spend time with my DOstamperSTARS team and fellow demonstrators at the Stampin' Up!

Beautiful Million Dollar Achiever Card & Flowers

Several of you have asked about the card I received from Sara Douglas & Shelli Gardner, (Stampin' Up! CEO & Founder) for my Million Dollar Sales Milestone achievement. 

Stampin' Up! Petal Passion Suite card from Sara Douglass & Shelli Gardener for Million Dollar Sales Milestone achiever Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #papercrafting #petalpassionsuite #milliondollarachiever

What a fun surprise it was when it arrived!  The flowers are gorgeous and the card is just perfect!  Using Berry Burst & Basic Black, paired with Petal Passion Suite products and the Music Sheet background stamp (music is a big-deal in my family).

Stampin' Up! Petal Passion Suite card from Sara Douglass & Shelli Gardener for Million Dollar Sales Milestone achiever Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #papercrafting #petalpassionsuite #milliondollarachiever

I appreciate all of the little details on this lovely card - Thank you Sara & Shelli.

Stampin' Up! Petal Passion Suite card from Sara Douglass & Shelli Gardener for Million Dollar Sales Milestone achiever Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #papercrafting #petalpassionsuite #milliondollarachiever

When I first started papercrafting, I started with scrapbooking.  After being introduced to cardmaking via my sister who made me go to a Stampin' Up! party, I was hooked!  I joined to save money on my hobby, but soon saw the advantages of sharing my passion.  I guess it pays to stick with your passion. 

Though, a million in sales never crossed my mind when I joined.  I could never see myself selling anything.  I still don’t see myself as "selling", but I do see myself as teaching and sharing my passion.  I’m ever so grateful for my loyal customers, incredible team, and supportive family.  Also, I’m thankful to Shelli who was brave enough to start Stampin’ Up! 30 years ago!

As I have shared with my DOstamperSTARS team before..."We have something very special to offer.  A grasp at happiness, making a difference in ours and others’ lives, to bring a smile to someone’s face.  In the end, it may seem like just a card, but the journey of that card comes from our heart straight to their heart. What a place to touch!”

Thank you~Dawn O
