One more day of Stampin' Up!'s Convention 2012 to recap from Saturday, July 21. I spent a lot of time during this convention checking out the boards full of stamped samples and also the product displays.
So many great cards, scrapbook pages and other amazing items made by demonstrators were displayed on these boards. Also, the product displays not only featured current products from the 2012 and upcoming Holiday catalogs, but also samples made by the SU Concept Artists, some of which were photographed for the catalogs. Nothing beats seeing them in person though.
Loving these flowers, and this is my current favorite SU paper...the Twitterpated line. It even has matching fabric!
Love the variety of flowers that were created here.
These adorable decorated packages were using the Birds of a Feather paper and the set Flock Together. Cute, cute!
And, last but not least, the beautiful ornaments made with the Ornaments Keepsakes set and matching dies. See for yourself!
I was able to get my picture taken with Shelli before the last session of the day.
By the way, I loved the chalkboard graphics that they used for the theme of Convention. I had to buy the My Digital Studio album template that has all of these elements, so once I get my album completed I'll post it here. They even had several large chalkboards in the middle of the lunch area, where we could write our own messages. One of my fellow Artisan Design Team members, wrote the Artisan Winner on the board, so i added my initials near it.
We had our closing session, and received two additional free stamp sets. So, just for Saturday, we received the Convention themed set, the Ronald McDonald set and a hostess set from the upcoming Holiday Catalog. Tomorrow I'll post pictures of all of my "loot" from Convention! We capped off the evening by going to Red Rock brewery. I had been to this restaurant back in 2005, which I think was the last time I attended Convention. I had an awesome salad, but couldn't remember the name of the restaurant so I could go there again. So in perfect symmetry, it was the restaurant that Susan suggested we go to! I had the chopped salad, which was just as good as I remembered.
All in all it was a wonderful trip full of friends and fun. Hoping I can go again next year for Stampin' Up!'s 25th Anniversary! Thanks for stopping by.
