So today was our first official day of Convention. We started with General Session where 3000 demonstrators gathered to listen to learn more about this years theme (Inspire - Create - Share).
During the general session we learned about a new partnership that Stampin Up has with Build-a-Bear. We have stamp sets and Sizzix Die Cuts. You are all going to love these cute little bears.
As a special surprise Build-a-Bear created a Demonstrator Build-a-Bear that was available today at Memento Mall. She is super cute. Mine has a Razzleberry Bow and she comes with a stamp that says...Life without Stamps is Unbearable.. The one on the left is mine..
Tonight was awards night - and there were a bunch of amazing demonstrators - who won some amazing awards. It would be wonderful to walk across that stage one day.
Tomorrow is our make-n-take day - I will post more pictures then.
One of the things that demonstrators look forward to at convention is Memento Mall. We can purchase some business builders like Designer Paper swatches and Stampin Up logo items like water bottles and shirts. They also look forward to receiving the Convention Bag. Every year we get a fun new bag that holds our free stamp sets. In this picture you can see the reversible tote bag.
So me and my fellow demonstrators went got to the Convention Center at about 9:00 AM. We got our bags and stood in line for about 2 hours to shop in Memento Mall.
We got into Memento mall and went crazy look at all of the fun stuff we could buy. You didn't even need your credit card, they have it on file for your convenience. Isn't that convenient? :O)
YAY Shopping! No, these are not all my bags...lol
I did some swapping today too... I will post some pictures of those another day. Tomorrow is the official start of Convention. Check back...
I am here in Salt Lake City for the SU Convention. Today was full of traveling - and I am exhausted. Tomorrow is Convention Check-in and Momento Mall. I hope to get some pictures posted, but I don't really have any to share yet. I will write more tomorrow....
Welcome to my blog. This will focus mostly on stamping with dabs of my everyday life thrown in. I hope you enjoy - come back - and post some comments from time to time.
Please note that some times you find the perfect card that someone else has created and you get inspired by the colors and or the design. You will then tweak it and create something new or you will copy it exact. Not all of the cards on this site are my own creations but are ideas that have inspired me.
