I love the holidays and I'm excited about this years Christmas Line called Letter to Santa. Stampin' Up! did a fabulous job of show casing it at Convention in the Product Park. It was so inviting and fun. I had fun capturing this photo.


I'm also excited to announce my new Christmas club. I'm still looking for a few people to join us and if you are interested please let me know.Here are the details. As soon as I have a few more people join, I will start this club.

It's time for our favourite club...a Christmas Club!! I can't wait to show you all the fun stamp sets and products for this holiday season. Plus...the new Holiday Mini is to die for....way to many fun products!!! I'm looking for 6 people to join this club. As soon as I have 6 we will start it.

Convention Display Boards #2


Wow, we are having a heat wave here this week. It's too hot to even go outside and the city is shut down certain activities due to the heat. It's a great day to stay inside to craft!! I have been busy designing classes...and I can't wait to show you. But, I have to wait to the weekend. I had to take my camera in to get fixed and it's going to be about 6 weeks. YIKES...that is a long time. So I'm hoping that I can borrow my mom's when she get back from holidays which I will see her this weekend. So in the meantime, I will be sharing photo's from Convention! I hope you understand!!

Many of you email me yesterday asking for more Display Boards, so here is a few more today!




Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Check In Day at Convention 2011

Hi Friends,

We were up early as we were all excited about Check In. Today was the day we would see our convention bag, all the display boards, see old friends and meet new ones. You could feel the excitement in the air as soon as you walked into the Convention Place. At 8:00 am there was already lines for our convention bags, and friends were hugging each other as they spotted them for the first time!!

We got this gorgeous bag and inside was 4 stamps for our make takes. We got Raining Flowers, Best Friend Forever, Easy Events, and It's your Day. This is the best idea that Stampin Up did...they gave us a 3 ring binder with a catalogue in it. There are tabs for each sections and a copy of the all the supplies need to make the samples in the catalogue.  This was a hit amongst the demonstrators!!


Here is Laura and Tracy waiting in line for their bags.


One of the other highlights is seeing all the display boards as there is tons of inspiration on them.  This year, we were all excited to the see our friend Heather's board as she was one of this year Artisan winners. This was the first time that we would see all her projects that she entry and the first time that she would see her board. It was a magical moment!!


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Product Park at Convention

Eh Stampers!!

Wow, what a fun week we had at Convention. The week started off rough with our flight being cancelled in Detroit last Monday and  then there was no flights been rescheduled for that night. We had to race across the terminal to see if we can find the next flight out of Detroit. Only to find out that all 8 of us had been reschedule for different flights the next day.  Now some of us were going through Denver, Memphis and Chicago but the funny thing was we all landed around the same time in Salt Lake.

But wait the night gets even better. We were told that we would be able to get our luggage in about an hour only to find out that we couldn't get it as they couldn't guarantee that the luggage would make it to Salt Lake the next day..which means no Luggage for the night!! So here all 8 of us with out luggage and stuck in Detroit. But wait it doesn't stop here the fun is just beginning!! We were given meal vouchers for up to $12.00 which by the way doesn't buy much at the airport and we were given a hotel voucher. So we all head to the hotel only to find out that it wasn't the place for us. We decided to have supper in the hotel so we could figure out our next step and as we were heading down to the restaurant the power went out. We all knew this was a sign and we decided to check out and head to our favourite hotel the Springhill Marriott!!

After a nice supper, we head to Meijer for clean clothes and a little bit of shopping!! After our fun adventure we were ready for bed!! I have to admit it was kind of fun...felt like we were on the Amazing Race!!

I thought I would share some photo's with you from the Product Park. The product park was one of my favourite displays!! It was set up like a park with displays featuring product lines from the new catalogue!!

This is the new Holiday Line called Letter to Santa.


This is the new Halloween Line called Frightful Sight.


This line is the new Big Top Line.


This little wagon was show casing products from the Starter Kit.


Thanks for stopping by. I will be sharing more displays and news from Convention this week.
