Last week was the Stampin’ Up! 2015 Inspire, Create, Share Convention.  It’s one of my favorite trips each year getting to see friends that I have made that live all over the country and catching up with Stampin’ Up! employees that I have met over the years.  Making new friends each year and seeing new products that will be coming out in the next catalog.  This time of year the focus was the upcoming Holiday Catalog – packed full of lots of new products for all different types of crafters and stampers.  There is something for every style in there!  Demonstrators that attended got a special pre preorder and the rest of the demonstrators will get to preorder on August 4th.  Not a demonstrator yet?  Then join my team and you can be part of the preorder too!  The catalog goes live for everyone on September 1st!

Throughout the convention I was posting on my Facebook page – mostly on my business page and some on my personal page.  But here are some photos that I took during the week.

The had welcome banners along the street in front of the convention center.


Cindy and I took a peek in the convention center the day we arrived – this is what it looks like empty.


we took a tour of the Stampin’ Up! home office in Riverton Utah.  Here are some photos from that.

Wednesday night I had a dinner for my friends and a card swap –

Convention started with check in and our new bags!


And this is what the convention center looks like full of demonstrators!


Here we are waiting for one of the general sessions to start.


Awards night was followed with a 1920s After Party



A group photo and wanted of the Photo Ops they had set up in the Convention center.


And Diane Squires and I got to walk across the stage for earning the Getaway Trip.


Saturday afternoon there was a Leadership session – here is the group at our table. Diane, me, Karen from CA, Linda and Jeanna from Vegas.  Diane and Linda live here in Georgia not too far from me but I actually met them at convention in previous years.  Well I met Linda on the plane we happened to end up in the same row together.  It’s funny how you can fly to another state to meet someone living just a few minutes down the road!


That was a glimpse of some of our fun at convention – check out my Facebook pages if you want to see more.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I need to get back on track with my blogging!
