My brain is full…


Okay. My first disclaimer is that I am blogging from my phone. And as noted by the comments, it sounds like I must be drinking. Though modern technology has advanced at incredible rates, blogging from a phone still does not have all the amenities a computer.  I apologize. Professional bloggers may refute me…. but remember: I am still new at this. And will try to correct everything when I am back actually at a computer…  🙂

Okay. As titled, my brain is so full that I feel as if it may burst.  So many stamps and so little time. This day actually started with Anne and I climbing into our beds. We were up till 2 am working on this years annual ACCE (Anne and Crystal’s Christmas Extravaganza). We are getting tons of ideas and our plans change with each new stamping demonstration we see.  You will be Wowed.  Make plans to attend. It will be in October and the exact date will be given soon…

So… once we woke, we attended 3 classes today… I am a leader with Brian Pilling, I am earning an I incentive trip with Karen Hauley, and I am having fun with Shannon West.  The classes at stampin’ up! Convention 2012 really aim to pull all the aspects of demonstratorship together. It is completely evident they are willing to provide the support it takes to be successful.

At today’s general sessions we had demos by Shannon West. She previewed some of the fall and Halloween items from the upcoming mini…. here are some:

This candle is actually STAMPED right on the wax with staz-on. Then she used the fall leaves to decorate it. This makes a great centerpiece for a Thanksgiving meal. And check out that gorgeous champagne shimmer paper!!

This card was one I got in a swap. It uses “Googly Ghouls” stamp set (holiday mini).


It also uses the new Howlstooth and Scaringbone dsp. This paper is wonderful because there is nothing inherently Halloween… so it can be used with other things.  And, my favorite, adhesive backed googly eyes. And a designer kit that coordinates with the googly ghouls stamp set that contains items to help you create your Halloween favors.

While we are on Halloween, SU! is having a promotion. Anyone who decides to purchase the starter kit in the month of August will get all the supplies necessary, including the shadow box, to make this:


Contact me and I can help you get that FULLY CUSTOMIZABLE kit.

I need to go to sleep now because it is now Saturday am…and I can’t stay up till 2 again but I have to introduce you to Kat:


We met her in line for coffee and Anne noticed these beautiful bracelets….made with OUR buttons.  On that stretchy elastic
worth beads in between. Way cute!!

Okay. Goodnight. Goodmorning? Whatever.
And check back cause SU has a BIG announcement for us tomorrow!!
