Big Top Suite by Stampin' Up!

Guess what?  I have more pictures to show you from Convention!  The inspiration there was endless!!  Today I want to show you some projects made using the new Designer Series Paper  "Big Top Birthday."  It's full of fun, bright colors that can be used for so many different occasions.  I'll start with these scrapbook layouts that I just LOVE:

Aren't these fabulous?  I'll be starting a Scrapbook Class next month so make sure and check my calendar regularly.  Here are some other cute samples:

Notice how well this paper suite coordinates with so many of our new stamp sets?  I love how it works with the Pennant Parade Stamp Set and Petite Pennants Builder Punch?!  How fun!!

Product Park

I'm in love with all of the new Designer Series Paper in the new Idea Book & Catalog!!  No matter what your style is, there is something for everyone.  I had so much fun drooling over all of the samples at Convention in the Product Park Display.  Here are a few photos I snapped of the "Domestic Goddess" Suite.  (#122355)

I wasn't a huge fan of this paper until I saw all of the cute things that you can do with it!  It's now on my wish list!!

Another exciting moment of Convention was getting to walk across the stage.  I was able to march twice - once for it being my 1st Convention and another time for building my team in 2011!  Here's a picture of me and two of my fellow demonstrators making our way to the stage!

I can't wait for next year's Convention and would love to have some more friends join me!!  Now is the perfect time to join my "Happy 2 Create" Team during this month's $99 Starter Kit promotion.  You'll receive $185 worth of product (and you get to choose the stamp sets) for $99, a discount on your favorite Stampin' Up! supplies, and access to all of my tutorials and samples.  Whether you just want to save some money on your purchases or want to earn money to make those purchases, I'll be here to help as much or as little as you need!

Have questions regarding any samples shown here, attending class, or joining my team?  Email me for a prompt repsonse.

Thanks for stopping by!

More Convention Highlights

One of the highlights of my first Stampin' Up! Convention was the Riverton Campus Tour.  The facilities were just gorgeous!

The displays were yummy!

The distribution center was massive - and so clean!

And we worked up our appetites!  The Melting Pot was the perfect ending to our day!

I promise I'll post some of my own creations soon!  I just have so many Convention photos to share!

Creative High

Wow!  I am home from the Stampin' Up! Convention and I had such an amazing time!  I am still on a "creative high" from all of the incredible product displays, presentations, samples, classes, demonstrations and FREEBIES that we received!  My mind is racing with ideas and I have hundreds of photos to share with you!!

Here is a picture of me and some of my Stampin' friends on the first day of Convention.  The theme this year was "grow."  We had so much fun together!!

The product displays were over the top!  They "grew" each day so you had to keep going back to see what they added.  It was very fun.  Here are a few pictures to give you an idea.  This display is showcasing our new Designer Series Paper, Beau Chateau (#122357).  (Which will be coming with my next order!!)  It's beautiful - very shabby chic!

Here is a close up of the cute little rooster - who comes up with these things?  Wouldn't you love to have that job?  How fun!

And a few more samples that I loved:

Aren't these GORGEOUS?!  I promise to keep the photos coming and hopefully they will inspire you as they have me!!
