Leadership 2014: Day 2 Highlights

Friday was Day 2 of the Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference in Houston. We started with a General Session and a keynote speaker and then had breakout classes in the afternoon. The highlight of course was the STAMPING!

After lunch, I stopped at the My Paper Pumpkin Booth to take part in the Paper Pumpkin Craft Wars. We were challenged to make a card using only stamps from previous My Paper Pumpkin Kits also with designer paper, punches, and accessories from the Occasions Catalog. I love a good challenge!! We only had Whisper White and Crumb Cake cardstock to work with, but I used the Strawberry Slush ink pad direct to paper to create the Strawberry Slush layer for my card. And guess what!? I was one of 20 winners selected from those who participated!! Woot! I get to choose two My Paper Pumpkin Kits for free!
That reminds me, I forgot to tell out about one of the announcements yesterday! If you sign up for a new My Paper Pumpkin Subscription, you'll get a FREE set of the 2012-2014 In Color Markers in your Welcome Kit!! I saw a Sneak Peek of the January, February, and March kits and they are fantastic!! I think they are three of the best kits yet!!

I got a chance to do more stamping Friday night after a fun dinner with my friends. We went back to the Convention Center for a Stampin' Night Out. It was a fun combination of stamping presentations and make and takes. Here are some of the projects that were demonstrated on stage.
 
This is a sneak peek of a new stamped called Blended Bloom that will be in the new catalog this summer. First, stamp with White Staz-On on a Window Sheet. Then turn it over and color in with the new (not yet released) Blendabilities Markers. I can't wait to get my hands on those markers!!

We received two stamp sets (Geometrical and Vivid Vases) from the Occasions Catalog and an Aquapainter and were surprised with an all-attendee giveaway -- the Happenings Simply Sent Card Kit. I LOVE, love, love this kit! All of the pieces are precut or die-cut. It's perfect for a new or busy stamper. And it's a great value at just $14.95 for the kit that makes 15 cards & envelopes! Check it out here.

I forgot to make a picture of the Make and Takes (I'll be sure to share them later), but here is a picture of our table at the end of the night.
