What a great day!!!! Opening session was just fabulous! LOVED chatting with Shelli :)
I had a great time hanging out, catching up and stamping with fellow demonstrators.
I hope I am as pumped when I wake up in 4 hours ;) I'm sure I will be as tomorrow will be even more exciting!

Well, Convention 2010 is off to a great start! It has been an amazing day today (check-in day) and I can't wait until tomorrow! Here is a close-up of my swap using the new Level 2 Hostess set "Fast & Fabulous." It's difficult to see in the photo, but the center of each flower is brushed with the new Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink. It was so easy to use and added a nice touch to the card. Contact me so we can set the date for your next workshop so you can have the opportunity to earn this great stamp set while learning new techniques.
Mom and I enjoyed our visit to the Stampin' Up! campus this morning. The displays in the Legacy Museum were so beautiful.
We ended the evening at the Flower Power party - very groovy ;)

I apologize for not posting a project tonight. My van had a little trauma this evening. While driving home after delivering some orders, it did not seem to be driving well, and the brakes didn't seem to be working properly. I pulled to the side of the road only to see tons of smoke rolling out from the tire area. Hopefully the van can be dealt with tomorrow, and I can return to the stamping tasks at hand.

One of my favorite things about this job is how people who start off as customers develop into your friends. A BIG thanks to my friend Jen who came over to help me finish my swaps last night. I feel like I can breathe a little bit, now. It feels good to get 50 card-fronts done in one evening!

I had to try out the new stamp set Cottage Garden and the coordinating Designer Series Paper Sunny Garden. I think the Peach Parfait and Poppy Parade (from the In Color collection) look nice together.

I thought I was going to explode waiting for the UPS guy to show up today. It was all I could do not to run into the street when I heard the truck rumble into the subdivision. I wasted no time unpacking the boxes! I put away some of my goodies, but many of them are still sitting out, because I just had to start stamping!!

Well, today is like Christmas in the stamping world. At 1pm (central) the new Stampin' Up! catalog went live. I had so much fun ordering my new goodies, and it will be like Christmas again when they arrive. Oh, how hard it is to wait!
The new Idea Book & Catalog is the best I have EVER seen. The project samples are BEAUTIFUL! It truly is a great Idea Book. You can get a free copy of this amazing book by joining my Scrapbook Club (which meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month) or by hosting a workshop. Contact me if you would like more information.
In honor of the new Idea Book & Catalog, I am posting 2 card samples using the colors on the front cover: Marina Mist, Pear Pizzaz, Crumb Cake, and Early Espresso. I used the "Friends Never Fade" and "Vintage Vogue" stamp sets. The great texture on the flower card comes from the fabulous new embossing folder "Vintage Wallpaper." It's so easy to run your card stock through the Big Shot with these folders to achieve a deep-embossed image. To stamp the multi-colored flower, I inked the stamp by coloring directly onto the rubber with my "Stampin' Write Markers" in the same 4 colors mentioned above. I also used markers to ink the stamp for the focal point on the vintage friends card.
I hope you find time this week to stamp some new projects. If you need any help, feel free to email me :)
