Hi!  It has been an exciting couple of days here in Salt Lake City at the Stampin’ Up! 2012 Convention!  I honestly can’t believe that tomorrow is our last day here!  Although I am sad that it has gone by so fast, I really miss my family back home.  Check out this awesome stage that they have set up for this year’s theme “i am…”

We have seen some great main stage presentations!  Of course lots of stamping, but some great announcements as well.  For example MDS2 is coming on August 1st!!  I had the chance to take a MDS class the other night where I received a 30-day trial of MDS2 and a chance to play around with it!  There will also be a 30-day trial available for customers.  It is AWESOME and I know you digital designers are going to love it.  Those of you who don’t design digitally yet are definitely going to want to try this!

I have been so busy in classes that I finally got around to taking a few pictures of some of the awesome product displays that they have here.   This is one of the displays of the Storytime Product Line.  I just love this line, maybe because I have school aged kids, but I think it fresh, fun, and so cute!

Did I mention shopping?!  Momento Mall is fabulous and they of course have tempted us with so many cute things to buy!  I had to go back just to get more fabulous things.  This is just one of the cute displays they have in Momento Mall showcasing some of the products for us to buy at Convention!  The shopping bags are so cute this year!  I had to control myself or I would have bought it all!  Just look at those adorable mittens…how much better can it get to have mittens with a Stampin’ Up! design on them?!


I will leave you with a picture of me and two of the gals that I came with.  This was us at dinner last night before awards night.  We had a blast!!  I have SO many ideas floating around in my head it’s hard to know where to start, but I can’t wait to get home and stamp!

Be creative!  Kristin
