Stampin' Up! Convention 2015 -- Wrap-up

I don't know why writing this post was so difficult, but it was.  I think it's because there is no easy, clean way to put Convention all in a nutshell for you.  It's one of those "you have to see it to believe it" kind of things.  It's awesome, amazing, and a bit overwhelming, but in the best possible way, and I mean EVERY.WORD.OF.IT! 

So, before I wrap-up Inspire.Create.Share 2015, let me start by saying that I wish I had more time to share the 300+ pictures I took.  But there's just not enough time for me to do so.  However, I'll be sure to share more of the amazing swaps I received and things I learned in the days and weeks to come, and I hope that's okay with you.  So, here goes nothing.

This is how things wrapped up at Inspire.Create.Share 2015.

My swag bag

As promised the other day, here is what we received in the gray felt convention bag--an Inspire.Create.Share 2015 journal, Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, and Your Presents Stamp Set (it's a new stamp set in the new Holiday Catalog).

Beautiful photo-op & Stampin' Up! display

These beautiful window displays were found in a couple of places around the Convention Center, and they presented great taking photo opportunities.  JoAnne and I finally got our picture taken in one on Day 2.

My Prize Patrol winnings!

  Inside of everyone's convention bag, we all received a wristband in a Stampin' Up! color.  In between presentations, Prize Patrol happens where people with the colored wristband that is announced receive a special prize.  My prize was the To You & Yours Too Stamp Set and some Silver Glimmer Paper.  Wahoo!

All of my Stampin' Up! prizes

In addition to our Prize Patrol winnings, every attendee also got the new Archival Basic Black stamp pad and the Season of Cheer Designer Series Paper.

Swap-nation!

I received well over 150 swaps...here are some of them.

Cindee's Stampin' Up! Convention Presentation 

Weeks before Convention, my friend Cindee got a call from Stampin' Up! asking if she would share some tips on how to run a successful business with Stampin' Up!  Of course she said yes!   

We, many of her Luv 2 Stamp team members, were in the front row to cheer her on, and her presentation was amazing.  YAY, Cindee!

A little holiday make 'n take.

This was the make 'n take we all got to make at the conclusion of Cindee's presentation.  It's so cute, and the Home for Christmas product suite is at the tip top of my must-have list!

The 2015 Autumn/Winter Holiday Catalog!

And here she is!  Isn't she a beauty?!  

An exclusive bag for Convention attendees is great, winning stuff is superb, hanging out with fellow demonstrators and friends is fun, but being able to get our hands on that catalog and see and touch the new products in it...why, that's priceless!  Every demonstrator goes to the Stampin' Up! Convention for different reasons, but mine was to get my hands on one thing...the new Holiday Catalog!  There, I said it.

I had a MAGNIFICENT time at the Stampin' Up! Convention, and I can't wait to go again next year!  I am absolutely overflowing with enthusiasm and excitement, and I hope you are ready for a new experience here at Get Crafty with Lisa!  

I've worked with other direct sales companies over the years, who shall remain nameless, but none of them have rocked my world like Stampin' Up! has.  It is has been such an honor and a privilege to work with a company who cares SO MUCH about their demonstrators.  I truly feel like I'm a part of something special, and that's why I continue to do what I do.  

It's been an amazing journey these past 3 years as a demonstrator,  and it's only going to get better!  My wings are lifted, and I'm ready to fly high.  I hope you will take this journey with me.  What do you say?

I'll celebrate my celebrate my 3rd Anniversary with Stampin' Up! on August 1st, so I'll be back next week with some BLOG CANDY as well as some fun new projects.  Until next time, happy crafting!
