Hi Everyone ~
I have just wrapped up Convention 2009-a whirlwind few days of information, fun, friendship, and creativity!
Conventions are always one of the most exciting events that
Stampin' Up! offers, and this year was one of their best. I absolutely
enjoyed spending time with the thousands of demonstrators who attended,
sharing training, product information, ideas, projects-you name it, we
probably enjoyed it at some point during the week.
I even had time to get to know some other demonstrators in my group better. What fun we had getting to know each other a little better this week. I want to send out a big THANK YOU to Jeannine, Tina, Karen, Raissa, Tracy, BJ, Denise, Lois & Debbie! It was an awesome week and I really enjoyed spending time with you!
Here are a couple more photos from convention…
On day three Shelli Gardner, Co-Founder of Stampin' Up! did a wonderful presentation that was focused on Gift Giving. She explained how nice it is to give (and receive) a homemade gift.
The photo above is Shelli carrying on stage her samples of homemade gifts she made inside all those gorgeous boxes!
This photo shows the necklace Shelli made using the new Stampin' Up! line (coming out in the Holiday Mini – Sept 1, 2009) SIMPLY ADORNED.
And I have to tell you it is Simply Gorgeous.
Just after Shelli's awesome presentation of all of her gift items she announced that selected Demonstrators would be receiving a handmade Simply Adorned necklace she handmade and signed!
You should have heard the reaction of the demonstrators at convention! Any demo with a certain color wrist band (and I forget the color they called out) received one. There were dozens of necklaces handed out ~ 4 demonstrators seated right around me received one. They were really beautifully done.
Simply Adorned is Stampin' Up!'s exclusive line of charms and chains. You will be able to create unique jewelry or home decor with these products.
The charms are nickel plated. Features include tempered, beveled glass on front, flat glass on the back, and a lobster clasp. The locket-style charm with hinge allows you to create artwork to be easily inserted.
It will be available in 3 sizes. The largest would make a perfect Christmas ornament that will become a cherished keepsake.
The Simply Adorned chains are available in 2 lengths. The are made of Stainless-Steel and feature a toggle-clasp & an exclusive Stampin' Up! charm identifier.
They come beautiful packaged! I can't wait for you to order yours and see for yourself just how beautiful they are in person.
Ordering will start on September 1st.
