Splash of Color

I’m still trying to catch up from my trip to convention, so I thought I’d share a fun sample that was posted on one of the display boards.  This card uses the “Gorgeous Grunge” stamp set which is one that we all got FREE in our bags.  I love the crisp white background and the bright colors used on it.  It simply makes me smile.

FREE Stamp Set of Your Choice!

 
As I was packing up to come home from convention I took a quick photo of all the FREE giveaways Stampin’ Up! showered me with. I had to strategically place things for this photo because I’m not allowed to show you any new product until it’s available for purchase.  So yes, underneath everything you can see in the photo are some other hidden treasures.  But don’t worry, just a few more days until August 1st when the Holiday Catalog goes live.
 
Stampin’ Up! offered us a challenge at convention to get parties booked, so I thought I’d take the challenge and sweeten the pot.
 
Schedule your own party, private class, book party or personal order of $150 or more and not only will you get the regular hostess benefits from Stampin’ Up! but I will include your choice of the “Perfectly You” hostess stamp set from the Holiday Catalog or the “Simply Sketched” hostess stamp set from the Annual Catalog.  You will receive your FREE stamp set when the qualifying party is held.  Your party must total at least $150 and be held by September 30th to qualify.  Contact me today before all my available dates are taken.
 
 

Convention Day 3 Final Day


Yesterday was the final day of convention and it was the best.  The energy in the morning session was really charged.  The demonstrations and giveaways were fantastic, our classes were motivating, the closing session was exciting, moving and tearful.  I’ve got many great ideas and plans I want to implement into my business, I can’t wait to get started. 

Here are all the FREE goodies I got at convention.  Yippee!  I love free stuff!

The winner of the video contest was announced.  Sorry, to all my helpers, but we didn’t win.  The winning videos were absolutely amazing.  But I must say it was great fun doing the video with you.  If you missed the video the first time I posted it, be sure to check my post on July 3rd.
