Stampin’ Up! Convention 2012 Day 2 Wrap-up

Every once in a while my tendency for exuberance pays off:

My brand new, exclusive, Limited Edition MDS2 tee!

We had great sessions today – I was inspired by Tami White in “I Am…Doing Business My Way” with Bonnie Thurber from the Stampin’ Up! head office.  Crystal and I found a little time to browse some of the displays and see some new projects, and this afternoon we participated in an enormous swap.  Here’s the card I brought to the dance:

WOW Swap Summer Silhouette Stampin Up Convention 2012

I used the Summer Silhouette set which is quickly becoming my favorite – and would you look at how all of the different elements coordinate?  That’s why I am such a Stampin’ Up! fan!  I have seen so many gorgeous cards and project ideas in my first 24 hours – it will be a busy fall!

Today at the morning session the company recognized demonstrators celebrating 5, 10, 15 and 20 years.  I celebrated 5 years last August and this was my chance to walk across the stage.  I was a little naughty, though, because the two women in front of me needed a little extra time down the steps and I kinda photo-bombed their picture:


Loved my own moment in the spotlight – can you tell?

Celebrating 5 years at Stampin’ Up!

Our keynote speaker this morning was Jason Ryan Dorsey from the Center for Generational Kinetics.  He got us all thinking about the differences between Gen X, Gen Y and the Boomers – who each group is and why they are that way.  What an insightful and entertaining preesntation!  His observations were spot on as Crystal and I represent Gen Y and the Boomers respectively – and there was a lot of laughter in the General Session as he told us some rather painful truths!  I’m looking at my peers, friends, family and acquaintances in a whole new way.

Holly Linford from Stampin’ Up! did a great presentation on the enhancements coming August 1st to MDS2 for our final session at Convention this afternoon.  This is digital scrapbooking at a brand new level!

There’s so much more to share – new merchandise at Memento Mall, MDS2, projects and friends old and new (and no, this is not a Gen Y/Boomer thing!!)  I want to leave you with one last thing.  This is how we started our morning, and when you listen to this I think it gives you a pretty good idea of the kind of fun that Stampin’ Up! brings to the table.

    1. So sorry you couldn’t be here this year – maybe the planets will line up for next year and the 25th SU anniversary convention! I was so sorry to read about the sudden passing of your mother-in-law and hope your family is surrounded by loving hands and hearts and comforted by sweet memories.
