Convention ’08 – Day 2 Opening Session

August 2, 2008 at 10:35 pm | Posted in Convention 2008, Stampin' Up! | 1 Comment

The day started with so much anticipation! 

The opening General Session began with a color guard, Stampin’ Up! staff singing & dancing, and pyrotechnics.  It was great!


Shelli (our superstar co-founder and CEO) was sweet, as usual.  I love that lady!  Plus, she had some exciting announcements.  My favorite was that she is going to start her own blog! will be up and running next Monday (Aug 4th) at 9am!  On her blog will be project ideas and also personal tidbits about her life at home and at the Stampin’ Up! home office.  She will also post creative challenges.  Shelli herself will choose the winner.  How cool is that?!

Shelli also said that she will begin a signature line of product.  The first items will appear in the Holiday mini catalog this fall.  Shelli’s favorites will be marked with a heart next to the product name.



Shelli also let us know that Stampin’ Up! will have another article in the December Holiday issue of Country Living magazine.  It will be 20 pages!



Next on the Main Stage was Brent Steele.  He said that although only the new stamp sets in the new Fall-Winter catalog are die-cut, all the sets in the Spring-Summer collection will be die-cut!

He also made this fabulous card with a new set “Under the Stars”.  When you pull the tab at the bottom, the bear’s arms move!

flying bear card by you.


 Next, Jill Kocherhans had some great things to show us from Phase 2 of Stampin’ Up!’s Decor Elements line.  It will come out this fall.  There are more colors, and some great new images from our favorite stamp sets!




As you can see, our first full day started off fabulously!  I’ll post more from Day 2 later.  🙂
