You feel like you are doing so much while you are there at convention and then all of the sudden it is day 3! There was so much to see and do and it all was fantastic! I wanted to share some highlights from my last day with you. And don’t worry, I’ll be posting more pictures over the next week or so of display boards, swaps, and more!
So, the day started off for me with more classes. This year Stampin’ Up! changed how you register and take classes and while I wasn’t sure about it at first, turned out it was great! They added the flexibility to pick from an assortment of options so I was able to take classes that focused on leadership at the same time my mom took classes on My Digital Studio and business tools. Perfect for both of us!
Then it was on to lunch and our last chance to check out the displays.
Samples from a main stage presentation using new holiday mini products including new fabric patterns (like the flat bow), new designer series paper (in the star bow, treat bag – its glittery!, the little house, and in the center of the frame – birch tree patterns and silver glitter paper!).
A Christmas countdown calendar that makes the window/door shapes using a new BigShot die!
Then it was back to the big convention hall room for the last General Session of the convention….sniff,, sniff. But they saved some awesome projects to show us including this cute card using a new stamp set and punch!
They also showed us some unique projects that I swear I wouldn’t have come up with on my own – but that is why I go to convention!
Like this so sweet little treat table. I was shocked how easy it looks to make! I’m going to try to make it myself using my notes and if it is as easy as it looks, I’ll share with you asap. 🙂
And it was hilarious when Carrie showed us how she used the mustache stamp set. Really makes lollipops more fun don’t you think?
We also received an emotional presentation by the president of the Company that really showed that the company “gets it” and is focused on sharing experiences with others with the goal of helping others as people. Lets just say there were a lot of tissues pulled out during his talk. It really made me realize how great it truely is to be a part of this company.
Ok, enough mushy stuff. They mentioned the incentive trip – Fiji!, how they are planning on holding lots of full and now half-day regional events across the US and Canada (check my FB page for the cities they announced), and told us that next year’s convention has the goal to be even better than this year and it will be July 18-21. I know I’ll be there and would love to have you join me!
And if you aren’t a demo right now, have you imagined what it would be like to part of the Stampin’ Up! family? To come to convention and be a part of the excitement? I’d love to share with you what it is really like! Just send me note to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can chit chat.
So, I’ll leave you with one last photo. They had the Christmas Box that is part of the $99 starter kit special this month in July. It was bigger than I expected and so much snazzier than I expected.
