2015 Stampin' Up! Convention: Day 1 + Paper Pumpkin Sale

Happy Hump Day to you! Today I wanted to share day 1 of Stampin' Up!'s Inspire Create Share Convention with you, and let you in on a little secret! I'll get to the secret first. :)
Have you heard of Paper Pumpkin? It's a great monthly subscription kit (think BarkBox, Ipsy Glam, all those fun monthly boxes) that comes right to your mail box! It has everything you need to complete a fun project (or projects) each month. These are for ANYONE, whether you have never stamped before or are a seasoned stamper. And right NOW you can get your first 2 month's HALF OFF by entering the promo code below! I saw sneak peeks at convention of the August & September kits, and you will NOT want to miss them! I can't wait to get mine! You can sign up on, select me (Dana Lewis) as your demonstrator, and I'll give you a free gift for signing up!
Isn't that so exciting!! Truly, you won't want to miss the upcoming kits! They are just darling! I can't wait to get mine, and I just might give away a few as gifts as well. :) Along with catching a glimpse of the upcoming Paper Pumpkin kits, I saw SOOO much more at convention last week! Let's get to Day 1 of the fun--it was a blast!
As this was my first convention, I really had NO idea what to expect. I'm happy to report it was even better than I'd hoped! One of the things I could not get over were ALLLLL of the people! It was truly like a sea of Stampin' Up! lovers just like me!

 Convention kicked off with a general session where we got a peek of the new Holiday Catalog that will be out September 1st. Truly CANNOT get enough of it! I literally want it all--all of the products and projects shown in the book are so beautiful! Along with announcing the new catalog to us, the 2017 Incentive Trip location was announced--THAILAND!!!!!!! Oh my word, I think I screamed!! That would be a dream! It's a huge goal, but I plan to do everything in my power to be on that plane to Thailand! If you'd love your own chance to go, right now is definitely the time to join my team!

After the general session we had a few classes, and the chance to check out the Gathering Place, a fun place with several activities. One of the highlights is the demonstrator display boards. Everyone had an opportunity to participate, and I didn't let the opportunity pass me by! I shared 6 projects. Some of these I've already shared here, and those I haven't, you'll be seeing more in detail soon. :) The Gathering Place also had a special place for demonstrators who achieved awards, earned trips, or were celebrating an anniversary with Stampin' up! to pick up a prize/gift and enjoy endless fountain drinks and popcorn while convention was going on. I'm celebrating my 5th year this year and my upline her 10th, so we each got to enjoy this special treat! So much fun & so sweet to be recognized! There were also fun photo ops set up every where around the convention center--super fun!

Day 1 was topped off with an Awards Night with a 1920s themed after party. What fun! My friends and I enjoyed dressing up a bit, and checking out everyone else's costumes--there were some really beautiful ones! There were TONS of awards given, and several even had us floored and jaws dropped!! I felt so adoration and inspiration by the time the awards were all given! Some goals were definitely set to work towards! After the awards portion, there was a super fun after party fully equipped with CARS! Yes, cars for the 1920s to take fun photographs with--Stampin' Up! really knows how to throw a party!

I was truly blown away just on the first day of convention, and already felt SOOO inspired! I'm so grateful I finally jumped at the opportunity to go, and so sad I hadn't gone before. But I now know, you are definitely missing out if you don't attend these events! I'm excited for everything I learned, and cannot wait to share everything with my downline and implement changes to better serve my customers. Truly a wonderful experience! And just think, it's only the 1st day! Check back tomorrow for a day of NON-STOP fun!
