Convention 2012

Time to share photos from the campus tour! If you ever come to Convention, you do not want to miss the campus tour. As we pulled in, we followed a UPS truck coming to pick up packages:

The main campus includes a beautiful waterfall. I would love to eat lunch here.

The first part of the tour is the legacy room, which is so beautiful. I love all the inspiration and ideas:

The distribution area (where simple boxes become gifts of joy!)

Demo support also had lots of cards on display:

This one is actually one of our make and takes:

I'll have more photos of the tour when I download them from my regular camera.

God bless and happy Stampin'!

Convention SWAPS

As promised, I'm sharing my SWAPs. I have two designs this year. The first is made up of leftover pieces:

The banner and Certainly Celery pieces are both leftover from other projects. If you've ever been to one of my parties, you know I keep a basket of these pieces. :)

My second card was inspired by something I saw on pinterest:

The girls did a HUGE part of the work for this card. Tim even helped. Isabel and Phoebe both worked on the paper weaving. Tessa and Tim helped adhere the boots.

Yesterday I had two great classes plus make and takes. I already mentioned one by Bonnie Thurber, and the second was by Emily Montoya called I am reaching out. She was a great presenter and is expecting a baby girl in October. If she hits Oct. 14, we'll be birthday buddies, but no pressure! LOL

Also we learned that My Digital Studio 2 will be released soon and you will LOVE all the great features. I could barely contain my excitement about the improvements.

More to come soon including Momento Mall goodies, Campus Tour and Product Showcase.

God Bless and Happy Stampin'!

Stampin' Up! Convention 2012 day 1

Day two is going well!

I had a great class this morning with Rhonda Wade, Tami White, and Bonnie Thurber. Bonnie is so funny. I think I my dream workshop would be her, Shelli, Tessa, Isabel, Phoebe and my pal Diana. Tessa would insist on sitting in between Bonnie and Shelli, Tim would make some great chocolate desserts. Can you picture it?
Here is my tip of the day that I just devised while working on my make and takes. The paper piercing tools are more intricate now and if the move, harder to line up. Try anchoring with two sewing needles or pins- you need a whole there anyway!

Convention 2012

I've arrived in Salt Lake City for the annual Stampin Up Convention! Very busy already!

Here is the convention bag and stamp sets that we were given:

Miss Tessa already has designs on it.

You can the bag tag I made for it using Comfort Cafe fabric:

I have some swaps to finish and a campus tour today. Busy!

God bless and happy Stampin!
