Hello There Gift Tags

I love all the super adorable hand-crafted gifts the everyone gives to their friends and downline at Convention. (And many thanks for my friends who gifted me with their talent!!) When it comes to Convention gifts...I cheated a little! I simply did not have time for hand-made gifts, so instead, I gave stamp sets to my downline who attended Convention with me this year. I choose the Hello There hostess stamp set and stamped up a quick tag to tie on it.

Little Letters Friend Card

I'm CASEing the Catalog again! I actually made several changes this time. I love the card on page 125 of the Annual Catalog, but I thought the sewing and the shaker part was a little fussy, so I simplified it a little bit by using Gold Soiree Designer Paper behind the Little Letters cutout. I used the same colors, but changed the base color to be Crisp Cantaloupe. Lastly, I changed the layout and switched from a horizontal card to a vertical layout.

Pin It!
I thought there was a video from Stampin' Up! about using the new Little Letters Framelits, but now I can't find it, so I'll add that to my to-do list and try to do a video soon with some tips for you.

World of Dreams Swap Card

This weekend was a little crazy with traveling home from Convention, so I decided not to participate in the Control Freaks Blog Tour this month. This only swaps I made for Convention was the organized swap with the Control Freaks. I enjoyed getting together with them and the swaps are always crazy good! Here's one of the two cards that I made. I used the new World of Dreams stamp set. I LOVE, love, love that set! Definitely a must-have from the new Annual Catalog! Check it out in my Online Store here.

Convention Highlight Video

I'm in the airport waiting for my flight to board. I opted for sleeping instead of posting more pictures last night, but I know you understand! Here's a picture of our group -- my downline and sidelines. Many thanks to our upline Kim Peck for sending the light-up green hats! We sure missed you this year!
Watch for a close-up of the green hats in this highlights video from Stampin' Up!:

Convention Update: Big News!!

Holiday Catalog Cover
Wow! Convention has been a blast so far! On the first day, Stampin' Up! revealed the new Holiday Catalog and holy cow, it's a good one! I'm so excited to get to pre-order (and take home) some new holiday goodies! There are so many new punches and dies and beautiful designer papers. I can't wait to share it all with you! Customer ordering starts August 28 and you can expect to receive your copy in the mail in mid-August.

Check out my favorite new stamp set. This will definitely be a Stamp of the Month Club pick this fall!!

Last night, we attended an optional class and made a little book of techniques broken down into three categories: stamps, ink, and paper. We got a whole bag of goodies to take home and use to try the techniques at home.
The first two days have been filled with classes, make and takes, display boards, swapping, and my favorite: catching up with friends (new and old)! This set of cards by Ilina Crouse on one of the display boards really caught my eye! I don't usually use black as a main layer (outside of Halloween), so I found these designs to be striking! And check out this amazing 3-D swap one of my downline received!
The big news came at Awards Night tonight. It was recognized again as one of the Top 100 Demonstrators of the Year and invited to attend the Founder's Circle retreat this fall. I was also one of six demonstrators invited to serve on the 2014-2015 Advisory Board. Advisory Board members provide the company with direction, experience, and opinions from a demonstrator’s point of view.
I'm still on cloud nine! What an incredible honor to represent my fellow demonstrators!
2014-2015 Stampin' Up! Advisory Board

Many, many thanks to my customers and my downline for helping to make this year my very best yet! And hugs and kisses to my family and friends for their love and support!
