Stampin’ Up! Convention 2013 Day 3

Crystal and I were very privileged this morning to participate in a “You Crew” event.  Demonstrators are selected at random for exclusive, up close and personal convention experiences and we were invited to meet with a Stampin’ Up! illustrator early this morning.

Maui Stamper Convention 2013 You CrewKathy Pitt has been a Stampin’ Up! illustrator for 23 years!  She shared such interesting and insightful information about how stamps are designed and selected for the catalog, and a little bit of history too.  She also shared some scrumptious cupcakes!

Maui Stamper Convention 2013 You CrewAs an extra bonus, after our You Crew experience we were escorted into the General Session and given fabulous seats in the second row!  With almost 6000 demonstrators in attendance, that was a real treat.

The morning sessions were filled with lots of product demonstrations.  Stampin’ Up! does not disappoint when it comes to projects!  I have loads of photos but it is going to take a little time to organize them, and then I will share.  I did find pictures of Shelli’s cards made with the newly announced Flip Card thinlets:

Convention 2013 Flip Card ThinletsThere are two sets of thinlets – one makes a circle flip, the other a label shape.  They will be available August 1 (I think – there were so many announcements and dates that my head is spinning more than usual.)

We had really informative classes this afternoon, and then the final general session of the day.  I’m heading home with loads of loot!
