You heard a lot from me about the Stampin' Up! 2012 Convention this summer in Salt Lake City even though I did not attend this year. As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I find going to the convention one of the most fun things I can do! For me, the biggest, biggest, biggest thing is all the creativity on display! So many displays and live demonstrations that you just think as soon as you get home you will make everything you saw at Convention! But there is also an overwhelming feeling of being with some of the nicest people you could ever meet, whether the Stampin' Up! employees or other demonstrators. I think we are all so happy to be there in the first place plus we just are a friendly bunch!
But what would the Stampin' Up! Convention look like to an "outsider"? This year Stampin' Up! invited a freelance writer, Connie Myers, and she shared her experience in an article on Scrapbook Update:
|Demonstrators attended general sessions and classes throughout the three-day convention. General sessions included technique and product demonstrations, prizes, company announcements, achievement awards and on-stage recognition. Classes included several make- and-take sessions using new colors and products. New products were also displayed on Product Showcase boards. Dozens of display boards showcased class projects, general session techniques, and creative cards, scrapbook pages, and projects created by demonstrators. Demonstrators took photos to use as examples when planning their parties, workshops, and classes at home.|
I know you will want to read her whole article and see the photos! I think she gave a complete report of what she observed at the Stampin' Up! Convention, plus, as I mentioned, experienced for herself the fun and friendliness available to everyone. You'll also learn a little history about Stampin' Up!
It might be unusual to encourage someone to read the Comments after the article, but I think in this case reading the comments will just add to your knowledge and excitement about the Stampin' Up! company and attending the Stampin' Up! Convention!
And if you would like to attend the Stampin' Up! Convention next summer for the 25th anniversary of Stampin' Up!, please get some information about joining the fun HERE.
