Hey stampin’ friends!

It’s HOT here in Utah but not as hot as 6000 stampers all over the convention center. It’s so crazy and full of energy!
I’ve been posting over on the Stamping School Facebook page all throughout the day but I’ll recap here once a day since I know some aren’t on FB.



“Be the difference” Is the theme for this year’s convention. Here is a cute pic of Cindy Brumbaugh holding this year’s convention Tee!

It’s the 25th anniversary so there are double the people here than usual.

Thousands of demonstrators got on buses to take them over to Riverton to the Stampin’ Up! distribution center for a tour. Here is a picture of the Stampin’ Up! corporate office foyer taken by Amanda Hartley. So pretty!
Gen. session does not open until 5 PM this evening. That’s when we will get our convention bag and have our first big meeting with everybody together.
Here are a few of my favorite swaps today for inspiration:

I didn’t really like this stamp set from the holiday catalog but now that I’ve seen what Mary Polcin did with it, I love it! Love the designer paper love the layout and the pretty brad in the corner.

Mary Ellen Byler made me have to buy this set with this card!

This card is so, so clever! Michelle Humphrey Used painters tape pressed in ink to create the three stripes on this card. Totally have to try this!

Okay, have to run an change for this evening. They are asking everyone who bought one of the convention T-shirts to wear it tonight so I got to see if mine fits. I hear they run super small so I’m crossing my fingers!
