I have been in Salt Lake City all week at the Stampin' Up! convention. What a ball we had! I love getting together with my stampin' buddies from across the country! There were tons of great swaps, great ideas, great new announcements and way too much fun! Now, if I can just get all these swaps home!
One of the announcements Stampin' Up! gave us was:
Stampin' Up! has teamed up with Sizzix to offer our very own Big Shot and Exclusive die cuts. I am SSOOOO excited about this! The dies are awesome, the ideas were awesome, and the price it outstanding!! I will be ordering mine after I get home and you can bet I will be having loads of fun with it!
The highlight of convention had to be at the very end when we saw a faux commercial for Convention Barbie. It was the cutest thing! In the commercial, two little girls were playing with convention going Barbies when a UPS driver delivers a package of stamps to them. Cute! After that, while Shelli was talking, a loud doorbell was heard. A UPS driver came onstage with one of those so familiar brown boxes from SU. Shelli seemed surprised and offered to help the driver find who the box was for. The driver said he was told to deliver it to EVERYONE! A UPS truck actually drove into the convention center and men in brown ran down all the isles delivering the new Ronald McDonald stamp set to every demonstrator in the house! It was awesome! The demonstrators were yelling and jumping in the air and cheering! There was confetti flying and lights blazing. It was quite an experience! We were all amazed that they actually gave us ALL a stamp set. I mean, we got three when we checked in, but....this was unexpected! After the craziness died down a bit, Shelli told us that UPS had actually donated ALL the stamp sets (over 6000) to the demonstrators(SU) to say thank you for all the business we have given them. Isn't that awesome?! We were just blown away!
Convention was the best ever. I am already looking forward to next year! In the meantime, there are regionals and leadership in Orlando to tide me over!
I'll be sharing pictures after I get home!
