Memento Mall

One of the coolest things about being a demonstrator and being able to go to convention each year is Memento Mall! It’s the greatest little Stampin’ Up logo store available only during convention. Look at this sweet little display of Stampin’ Up branded chap sticks! There were four flavors: Watermelon, Pomegranate, Spearmint and Vanilla. That makes keeping your lips from chapping or burning super fun, right? And I love the cute little flag decorations — all made with fabulous SU product, of course. I thought I’d share a few more photos I took of Memento Mall. There is just so much to see at this fun little shopping haven! See for yourself: This was a fun little display of cards to showcase the card tree (quite literally a tree!) for us to showcase upcoming class projects and favorite samples. Isn’t it the cutest thing?? There were some great card samples on it too…. like this one: and this one: and this one: I’m telling you … there is inspiration EVERYWHERE at convention! Here are a couple more photos from Memento Mall: This last one is the cashiers ready to ring all of us up. It’s actually only one side of

Let’s play catch up….

Well, I have returned from Convention and I had so much fun I don’t even know where to begin for a recap! I had planned to show you a bunch of the displays, some main stage demos, some new friends, some great new project ideas, but unfortunately, I misplaced my camera on the way home so the only picture I have is this wee little one of general session on the first official morning. I think there were about 5,000 or so of us… so much fun! I actually won prize patrol, which means I got a new package of Designer Series Paper and a stamp set out of the upcoming Holiday Mini Catalog. I am in so much trouble with that mini…. soooo much fun stuff in there! Now as a demo, I actually get to pre-order some of that stuff TOMORROW! yipee 🙂 If you want to take a gander at it and earn 30% off your first order within 45 days… run (don’t walk) to my Web site — well, I guess you wouldn’t need to run or walk as you are probably already on the internet… lol) and sign up today for the $99 starter kit.

Happy Fourth!

Well hello there long lost blog world! I seemed to have missed the entire month of June. Hmph. How is it that I’m having such difficulty keeping up with the little old blog these days? I do have grand plans to update (both literally – as in posting! – and physically – as in giving it a bit of a sprucing up) in the not too distant future. I’m a little bored with it so I’m thinking maybe if I make it a little prettier and maybe offer some things here … it might be more fun for me! Of course, words of encouragement from my friends in blog land are always fun — so feel free to comment away when you see something you like! 🙂 I’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, today is a big day! It is the official start to the new Stampin’ year! That means a brand new Idea Book & Catalog, folks. Very exciting. I’ve actually already put in my first order of the year — and I must say I was very well behaved — only ordering supplies for upcoming classes. Click here to check it out for yourself. Here’s a little

I love the bugs…

Actually, I’m really not a fan of bugs in general, but I do love the cute little “bugs” in the retiring Stampin’ Up level one hostess stamp set called “love bug”. It is a very cute set that I didn’t use this set more often… too many stamps, too little time. Lol! It’s not too late to get some of your favorite stamp sets that are on the retiring list. It’s also not too late for you to become a Stampin’ Up demonstrator for just $99! This is a great deal and THE BEST time to join us because we have a brand new catalog FULL of fun new product that goes live in just over a week.
