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 from Diane Tunnell!
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!

Congrats on earning Founders Circle, my roommate at COnvention said she have watched all your videos and loves your work! I do, too (but lately I haven't had time for much blog browsing). As well thank you for sharing my cards from the Display Boards. I am really flattered.

Congratulations on your awards at convention....I browse your blog occasionally as I discovered your creations on Pinterest. Much to my surprise, I saw the picture of my flower barrel creation I swapped in SLC. Thanks for the nice comment and hope your downline enjoys it!
