Stampin' UP! Convention 2015 Video & Photos


Have you ever wondered what the Stampin' Up! Convention is like!?

I've been attending Convention since 1996, so I can tell you that there are thousands of amazing demonstrators having a blast, learning new stamping tips, seeing new products, swapping cards, making new friends, reuniting with and hugging life-long friends... well, it's a BLAST and I just got home from Salt Lake City after spending 5 days with my bestest stamping friends!!

I thought you might enjoy seeing the official Stampin' UP! Convention highlight video and a few of my photos! Enjoy!


View the video above on my blog, or click here to see it on YouTube.

I also wanted to share some other highlights of my own with you ... EVERYONE in attendance won a Prize Patrol gift and here are a few of our Luv 2 Stamp Group members and their prizes!


Did I mention that Convention is all about FRIENDS!?  (well, ok, and lots of stamping!!!), but I LOVE attending so I can see my friends from all over the United States and Canada!!  Below are my 2 very dearest "long timer" friends, Janice Weightman from IL and Jan Wakeland from PA! Love these ladies!!


I was SO excited to have 28 of our Luv 2 Stamp Group attend Convention this year... I don't think we were ever ALL together at once, but here is about 1/2 the group!


If you'd like to join us at a future event, you can read more about becoming a demonstrator and joining our Luv 2 Stamp Group here!

OH, and Convention isn't complete without an awesome roommate... my dear sweet friend Cindee was my roommate once again.. we have it all down to a routine and have the BEST time together!  Thank you Cindee for being Awesome!


 Have you ever dreamed of seeing thousands of stamping ideas all in one place?  Well, Convention is the place to do that! Check out the awesomeness of these display boards!

 One of the highlights of Convention is Awards Night with recognition of top achievers in Stampin' Up!.  Many of you asked about the awards I received this year, and I was very blessed to once again be in the Founder's Circle group, which is the top 100 demonstrators in the country. This will be the last Founder's Circle group and trip, and my 8th year in this group!


I know it's a bit like Where's Waldo, but I'm on the left side about 2 rows up behind the lovely lady in the red dress. :)  I placed 3rd in the category of upper level promotions, 5th in the category of annual personal sales of over $162,000, and I achieved my biggest goal of earning the Achiever's Bonus 5 times. 


The reason I mention this particular achievement is that the year before I earned this bonus award 3 times, and I thought perhaps I could earn it 4 times this year.  Part way through the year, I shared my goal with my friend Mary Fish, and she {gently} "challenged" me to earn it 5 times so we could walk the stage together!  Well, I was very blessed to have amazing customers who supported me with their generous orders this year, and a wonderful Luv 2 Stamp Group who have had worked hard and promoted to higher titles, and together, those two things allowed me to earn this achievement 5 times!  I am feeling so humbled and blessed and thankful to Mary for believing in me!!  Mary and I were the only ones to achieve this bonus award 5 times.. we are pictured above with Sara Douglass, Shelli's daughter, and interim CEO of Stampin' UP!

Thank you to Mary for sharing these photos with me... I think you can see our excitement as we walk up on stage for our award recognition!




 So a big thank you to everyone who visits my blog, watches my videos, places their orders with me, and joins my Luv 2 Stamp Group!!  You are ALL amazing, I am thankful for each of you and feel so blessed to have had an amazing year!!

I have a WONDERFUL story for you all that I will share this week.. stay tuned.... lots more to come!
