Oh my goodness ladies!! I can honestly say that I am thoroughly exhausted after our first full day of convention action! Actually, we checked in yesterday and received our wonderful Fall-Winter Idea Book and Catalog and an awesome bag to carry our goodies. After getting our catalog, we waited in line for over 2-1/2 hours to enter Momento Mall for logo merchandise! Stampin' Up! definitely outdid themselves this year. We were able to purchase an awesome stamping tote to carry our supplies, along with a sweater and other goodies! This is just one of many things that I love about convention.
Oh, would you like to hear about some stamp sets? I received three stamp sets for attending convention: Flight of the Butterfly, Inspired by Nature and Eastern Blooms. In addition, I received two free stamp sets for my sales award which are A Flower for All Seasons and Time to Party! I can't wait to play with them and have my first make and take session tomorrow!! I gotta say it was soooo cool to get all die cut stamp sets! Rumor has it that in the next Spring Summer Idea Book and Catalog (in 2009) all the stamp sets will be die cut!! The accessories section is awesome and along with the Silver Hodgepodge Hardware, there is Styled Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware and it's gorgeous! There are also designer brads that will take your breathe away!!!! And new punches!!! They are no longer carrying a punch box, for now a Curly Label Punch Bundle for $33.95 and includes a punch and set stamp -- you'll just have to have this!
We also saw the Stage 2 of the Decor Elements product line and you'll see in the Fall some new colors and images added to the Decor Elements line!!
Tomorrow promises more surprises which really makes it hard to sleep at night. I'm signing off now to go make out my wish list. I'm really in trouble this time, because I love so many things in the Fall Winter Idea Book and Catalog, I believe I have to have them all!!!
Come back and see me on Friday for more info!!
