Bouquet Die, Weekly Deals and a walk down memory lane….

Hi all!  I just got back from a week in brisk NC and tomorrow will be heading down to the Orlando convention center for the Stampin’ Up Leadership conference!   I’ll be posting pics and fun things that I see from there.  It’s the last Leadership conference for demonstrators since they will be adding different kinds of events and training next year.

We sure have had a lot of fun over the years!  The husbands sometimes tag along to attend the Manager’s reception as we traveled to different states each year.  This was one of my favorites from 2011 in Nashville with the Valders, Burnetts and Waggoners.


If you have time and like to see some throwback posts from leadership conferences past, here are a few:

I just bought this new die in the Occasions catalog called the Bouquet Bigz Die.  It makes really amazing flowers! It’s a pricey one but I can see the potential.

Here is a video from the SU Corporate office showing how she made these flowers

Weekly Deals!

Looks like this week is all about embossing! Let me know if you’d like any of these deals.  Of course I already have all of these but I love them all!  The little embossing machine is a great deal – just remember it only embosses, no cutting dies or framelits with it.

That’s it for me! Go stamp something!

New Stampin’ Up catalog starts today!

2014 Stampin’ Up Leadership Convention Day 2

Rainy and windy today here in Houston but no snow so everyone was liking the weather.  In fact, there is a rooftop hotel pool and hot tub that was full of demonstrators tonight!

Today was full of classes here at the SU Leadership conference.  We had a special Keynote speaker, Pat Pearson, who delivered an inspiring talk.  A really nice sit-down lunch and then some picture taking of displays, dinner and then back at 7 pm for our Make and Take stamping night.   SU had a few fun projects and well as lots of demonstrations.

Here are the tags we made with the wooden accents, the new scallop tag punch and Kaleidoscope paper .


  Here’s our group with a new friend, Lucia, on the far right.



SU gave us these cute totes with our stamps and project kits.


I liked this watercolor card:


This was my swap this year.  I forgot to take them down with me the first day so I still have 75 more to unload tomorrow!


Saturday we have big class in the morning, lunch and then the last general session where hopefully we will see some fun new stamping techniques and ideas!
