Hello fellow stampers!!  I just returned home from the annual Stampin’ Up! Convention 2013 and I had a BLAST!!  It took me a whole day just to recover from all of the excitement. Who wants to go with me next year?!IMG_1776This is a great picture taken of our whole group (minus one) on the final night of convention. We had a fabulous time and I’m already thinking about next year!

IMG_1664I was lucky enough to travel with my mom to convention this year!  I think it just made the whole experience even better being there together!  This is a picture of us at the after party on awards night.  WOW…what a party!  Thanks to Lynn Z for these great pictures!



There were prizes galore, in fact everyone won a prize patrol once.  I was lucky enough to be one of the winners of the new Undefined carve your own stamp kit!  There were also more all attendee giveaways then before!  I can’t wait to dig into all my new goodies!

I’ll leave you with a few pictures of the make-n-takes from convention this year.

hellolovelymntThis was one of the make-n-takes using the Hello, Lovely stamp set and Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.

youmakemehappycollageWe also made this fabulous little bag using the new Tag A Bag gift bags with that great chevron design.  All five of these cute little note cards and envelopes made with the Hello, Lovely stamp set went into the bag when we were finished.  This would make a great gift set for someone!

I will be taking pictures and uploading several of my favorite swaps from convention soon so stop back later this week!

Be Creative, Kristin
