Stampin' Up! Convention 2013: New Product Announcement & Awards Night

I think that the opening General Session today was maybe the BEST ever in my book! We heard about THREE new products that will soon be available and of course, I want them all!!
  • NEW!! Thinlit Card Dies. These new framelit-type dies for the Big Shot are sooo cool!! The main piece cuts a "flip flop" or "swing" card (like this one), but in a different shape. Plus it includes other great cut-outs. I can't post pictures of the product yet, but they will be available on August 1st, so stay tuned!
  • NEW!! Envelope Punch Board. This is a great tool to make envelopes in many difference sizes. It's SO easy! No details on a release date yet, but I'll keep you posted!
  • NEW!! Undefined Stamp Carving Kit. Make your OWN stamps! Anything you want -- a name, logo, image. If you can draw it, you can make it in to a stamp! Check out this video from Stampin' Up! to learn more and click here to Buy It Now.
On top of all the fun new product announcements, there were some incredible projects demonstrated on Main Stage today! I can't wait to bring the ideas home to share with you!
Perhaps the very most exciting thing today was Awards Night. To be honest, I wasn't expecting so much excitement. While I have had a great year (my best ever sales-wise), I didn't think that I had enough going on in other award categories to qualify for Founder's Circle. I even brought a dress, but decided not to wear it and go "comfy". I was relaxed and enjoying cheering on my friends when their names were called. I wish someone could have gotten a picture of my reaction when I heard MY name called!! It truly was a complete surprise!

And I am still not over the SHOCK! I am so honored to be recognized as one of the Top 100 Demonstrators of the Year in the United States!! Thank you to all my customers and downline for making this such an incredible year! And thank you to all of all for your friendship and support!
An emotional surprise! Me with "The Bag"

Time for me to get some sleep! Tomorrow is the big day when I present in one of the breakout classes!
