Stampin' Up! Convention 2015: Part 1

Hello my friends. I've had a few days at home now since returning from my adventures at Stampin' Up! Convention in Salt Lake City, and I have SO much to share with you! 

This year I was asked and accepted the great honour and privilege of presenting on the Main Stage. Whoa!
Yep, that's my face on the MASSIVE screen! I did the same presentation 5 times throughout convention. Number 1 felt very surreal, but by number 5 I was really feelin' it! 

I was asked to present creative projects and selling tips using some bundles in the Annual Catalogue. All of these projects that I presented will be incorporated into my upcoming class schedule, so stay tuned!

First up was the cupcake bundle. This includes the Cupcake Party stamp set and Cupcake Builder Punch. And surprise! These are the cards for my Cards and Cupcakes Class on August 18th - just email me to sign up! 

And of course I also had to do an over the top card using the cupcakes. I'll be showing how to make the burlap label to my Stamp Club ladies next week!

Up next was Project Life! I have fallen head over heals with Project Life by Stampin' Up! in the last year and I was SO excited to share this love on stage! Here's a vacation album that I shared - watch for this class in late September/early October!

My Project Life Club is kicking off in October, and I have Try It nights in both August and September so you can give it a test drive! This layout is what we will be making on August 21st. It's only $10 to give it a try - email me to sign up!

And then I shared my love of mini albums with this itty bitty Kraft Gift Bag Book. This is part of my Project Life to Go Class - details will be released on Monday!
You can see all the Project Life by Stampin' Up! products here

Last, but certainly not least, I used the Vintage Leaves Bundle to create this fall wreath. I know this class is going to be POPULAR - watch for it in early October!

This bundle is really a favourite for me. Check out the leaves on these cards. My Stamp Club ladies will be making these in September!

It was SO cool to see all of my projects displayed. I even had a fancy sign with my name on it! Just had to take a selfie!
I'll have more to share about Stampin' Up! Inspire.Create.Share. Convention 2015 tomorrow. Stay tuned!!

Happy Stampin'

  3. Allison, Enjoyed meeting you at Convention. Your presentation was great and your projects were awesome. My niece and I are making your Vintage Leaves wreath and wondering what size wreath you used? Thank, Michelle

    1. Hi Michelle! I'm so happy that you'll be making the wreath! The size I used was 18". Have a blast!

  4. You are amazing! I wish I could have seen your presentation but I'll have to live vicariously through you blog! TFS!

  5. Wow! The wreath is stunning! Wish I could have seen you presenting this in person at convention. What colors did you use and how many of the smallest leaf did it take to make the pinecones? Thanks!
