Inspire. Create. Share.

Stampin' Up!'s Convention is the annual highlight for us demonstrators, and the effects seem to last for a few weeks. What helps me is taking my time going through pictures. I get to re-live the fun times!

This convention (renamed Inspire. Create. Share.) was even more fun because there were eight of us from my team (Woot Team Fancy!)!! We sat together in general session, went to classes together, and even ate lunch together. But there were times when we had time to break up into groups, or even go solo. It was the perfect balance, and the right mix of people.

One of the highlights for me was seeing my picture in a montage up on stage!

I couldn't believe it! My friend Debory was trying to tell me (sitting seven people away, it was hard to hear her, so she had to text me LOL!), but I missed it at that moment. I did, however, catch it later in the day, and was pleasantly surprised when it replayed again and again on a loop! I was able to take a picture. SUCH FUN!! Especially since I usually don't like my picture taken. Tee hee!

Another fun activity at Inspire. Create. Share. is taking pictures of the display boards. Talented demonstrators provide inspiration and share their creations (get it?)! I am so in awe at what these women and me can do with ink and paper (and a few punches, ribbon, embellishments, etc.). Look at a few of these amazing projects...

Of course my favorite is the Disney Punch Art - Belle from Beauty and the Beast. I always ask myself, "Now why didn't I think to do something like that?" They make it look so easy!

Stay tuned, as I have a few more pictures and memories to share! I'll also post pictures of some swaps I've received - and some I've done.

Thank you for stopping by! Now, go stamp! :)

It's About Time

Yes, it's been a while... and no more promises about posting. I will try to post more often, but that's the best I can do right now. I do, however, post more often on my Facebook page ( because quite honestly, it's so much easier! Snap a picture on my phone, upload, and voila! It's a post!

But enough of that... I finally had a moment to take the pictures from Stampin' Up!'s Inspire. Create. Share. (formerly known as Convention) off my camera. Here are a few of my favorites...

These are samples that Shelli Gardner showed during her presentation. The first two pictures are samples made from product out of the new upcoming holiday catalog. If you'd like a copy of your catalog without having to wait until August 28, then e-mail me with your name, mailing address and e-mail. I will add you to the list and get you a catalog as quickly as possible!

As always, I appreciate you stopping by! Please feel free to leave a message to let me know you were here.

And yes, I will post more pictures... soon!
