"Back To School" September Stamp Camp!

Hello Everyone! This weekend has reminded me of autumn and the first day of school. Do you remember when you were so excited for the first day of school to begin? I do. I always missed seeing my friends I only saw during the school year. Anyway, I thought in honor of "Back to School" that we would complete a Mini Back Pack (originated by another SU demo and I'd love to give credit, but I can't remember her name) and some "School Day Apple" Cards. These would make great teacher gifts! Fill the back pack with candy or a couple of school supplies and you're done! Hope you can come to the stamp camp!

Stampin' Up! Convention

Oh, I am so excited about what I learned at convention! We have a awesome Holiday Mini Catalog and some fantastic new Build-A-Bear stamps and Big Shot Products! Also, "My Digital Studio" will finally be released this fall! If you would like to try scrapping or card making digitally...this will be an awesome way to start. I can't wait until I can get mine!

Some of the highlights of conference:

I saw where our stamps are made and how they get packaged at the Riverton campus.

The weather was absolutely wonderful and we walked to the Salt Palace convention center each day.

I learned some new techniques to use at my workshops and camps!

I received new stamps and participated in the "make and take".

I swapped cards with other demos and got some fantactic ideas.

Unfortunately, my camera broke, so Nancy took all of our to get a new

I heard some wonderful speakers about the Stampin' Up business and learned what it takes to keep a large organization running.

I made some awesome friends from all over the country!

This is just a bit of what I wanted to share with you, so, if you want to hear more, have a workshop!
