Stampin' Up! Convention 2013 - Day 2

Another fantastic day at Convention filled with Prize Patrol, meeting up with friends, swapping cards, and fun!
 
 
 
 Here is Nicole participating in the Pressed Clay swap; organized swaps are so much fun; you get to trade with other card makers who use the same product or theme; this way it gives you TONS of ideas to use when we get home and start creating!
 In the sea of 6,000 Stampin' Up! demonstrators, I got to see a Florida neighbor of mine, Amanda Hartley.  We swapped cards and grabbed a picture.
 Opening General Session; whoo-hoo!  The kick-off for the entire weekend.  A shot of the stage where Ryan Innes from The Voice helped us celebrate our theme this year; Be The Difference!
The sea of 6,000 demos!!  All of us trying to navigate the Salt Palace Convention Center at one time!
 
 Another good stamping friend of mine, Brandy Cox.  So glad I got a picture with her!
 Stampin' Up! In-Colors in nail polish form!!  Awesome!  Crisp Cantelope, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana, and Baked Brown Sugar.
The rest of the evening was spent browsing the Demo Resource Center; chock full of display boards and other demos getting to "wow" us with their clever creations.
 
 
 

Thank you so much for stopping by for Day 2; stay tuned for more pics of Convention 2013.

Happy Stamping!

Stampin' Up! Convention 2013 - Day 1

Convention is one of the BEST events to attend as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!!  It is held in Salt Lake City, Utah every July.  Be the Difference was this years theme, celebrating Stampin' Up!'s 25th Anniversary.  Here are a few photos from my arrival day....I headed over to the Convention Center (Salt Palace) with my Convention roomie, Nicole Black, to get a sneak peak at the decor before the crowds. 

 
My Convention notebook, made by my roomie, Nicole.  It is using the new This-n-That journal.  I loved it!!  It came in very handy to jot down notes, goals, ideas, etc.  Once I get some photos printed, I will put those inside the notebook as well....a keepsake and scrapbook all in one! 
 
Some very cute gifts from demonstrator friends!  The bag is made using Stampin' Up! fabric and the "Just for You" booklet is made out of Stampin' Up! cardstock and Desinger Series Paper.  Inside were "swap" cards.  More posts on that later. 
 

Thank you for stopping by my blog; I hope you enjoy sharing these Convention photos with me; stay tuned for Day 2-4

Happy Stamping!
