Stampin' Up!'s Convention Day 3

Day Three and it is the final day.  There was a lot to do today before the Closing Session.  We had another great Opening Session which was followed by some classes and lunch.  The classes I was interested in were Living a Creative Life, Marketing your Business, and Building a Thriving Business. I learned so much in them and hope to be able to implement some of things with my business.


Closing Session is sad as usual...saying by to 5,800 friends is tough!  At the closing session they also announce the best award given at Convention....the Heart of Stampin' Up! Award.  This years winner is Susy Miller.  This lady is unbelievable and has been going through a lot the last year or so.  Shelli and Susy had us all in tears!!


And there is nothing better then ending a Convention with more FREE stuff.  This year everyone won Prize Patrol at one point or another...but there was a secret catch....25 hadn't won and Convention was just about to end.  That's when Shelli announced the last ribbon color and the winners received ALL the stamp sets in the Holiday Catalog!!!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!  That was so incredible and no I did not win, :-( but I so happy for those that did.  Til next Convention...Happy Stampin'!!!


PS: Here are some shots from around town.  If you ever get the opportunity to go to SLC either for Convention or vacation do not pass it up.  It is one beautiful City/State!

Stampin' Up!'s Convention Day 2

Day 2 was a very full day and yet I don't have to much to show for it, lol!!

General Session started at 9:00 am, yikes! Then there was the EXPO, some mini classes and lunch.




In the evening we had our Awards Night...and then our 25th Celebration Party, woo hooo!! For this there was a live cover band, acrobats, and life statues, games...and cupcakes of course.




Now as you can see Stampin' Up! has been around for 25 years, and these ladies have been working for them for that long!  Congratulations Ladies!


Also, be sure to check out the Opening Session Video Stampin' Up!'s Opening Session!  Not sure why it starts in the middle but be sure to watch from the beginning.

Stampin' Up!'s Convention Day 1

We started the day with the Riverton Tour, a must see if you go.  Their Home Office is absolutely beautiful!!!



It was a late start to General Session but it all worked out very well.  They also passed out our Convention Bag tonight, woo hoo!!  We got these really neat Back Packs.

After opening session we got to hang out at the Social, where we broke the World Record in sending out the most hand made greeting cards from one location!  The total....drum roll please 2, 984!!


We helped out with a Service Project, putting together 2000 Birthday Kits for Primary Children's Medical Center located in Utah.


And not to mention Demonstration Booths and Sample Boards....phew I'm tired just recapping this all!

Up Next Day 2

Oh Wow, has it really been that long???

OK so it has.  Sorry for not being in's been one crazy Summer!  So hopefully now it will be a little calmer and I can get back to what I LOVE most...STAMPIN'!!

I made it to Stampin' Up!'s Convention this year, (had to it was their 25th Anniversary) and it was simply amazing.  I don't know how they do it but they are incredible when it comes to Convention!  Here are some of the pictures...

It is also amazing how Salt Lake City welcomes all of us....
