Thursday...Day 2 of Convention

Day 2 of Convention started early! The doors now open at 7:30am (instead of 8am) because they make sure to check everyone's nametag. Here is the main stage...

And all of the people that were there. There are around 6,000 demonstrators here! WOW! And now, Colette, I didn't sit way back there...I just went there to take a picture!

Then before the presentation started I spotted Kristina Werner and got my picture taken with her! Check out her blog for a Stampin Up employee's view of covention. She is a designer for SU...designing stamp sets and papers. She does videos every Monday! They are fun!

I took this picture of the regional announcement for Kansas City! Can't wait for that one ladies! August 6th is sign up!

Here are some announcements from today's General Session that are worth repeating:

*Shelli is starting a blog! http://www.soshelli.com/ Her first post will be on Monday, August 4th!

*Shelli is going to have her own signature product line. So she will start picking things as new minis come out. They will be marked with a heart and will represent her style and what she likes the best.

*In November Stampin Up will be partnering with Country Living magazine again. They will have a holiday kit this year (Christmas) and a 21 page spread in the December issue of the magazine.

*The Spring/Summer Idea Book and Catalog will have ALL die cut stamps!!!!!!

*Phase 2 of the Decor Elements will be ready for ordering in the fall...no specific date yet. These will include colors and more seasonal images. Pictures below.

Here is a picture of the cupcakes that were on our table at lunch today. That piece is actually chocolate! How cute is that?

This room was on display. They stamped on the walls, used Decor Elements on the desk and chair, and used Designer Series paper for wall decorations and office supplies. So cute!

New Decor Elements - Phase 2! Cute!

Here is Sandy, Kristina Werner, and Tina (one of my roommates). Sandy and Tina are my new buddies.

And I did something that I have never done at a convention before. I attended Awards Night. They changed it to be on the 1st night of convention instead of the last so I thought I would check it out.

It was pretty amazing to see what some demos sell in a year. Here is the top US demo. She sold $130K! WOW!

And then the entertainment was Tonic Soul-Fa. They were a great group and there is rumor that they are coming to KC close to the holiday. I'm excited!

And that is the end of day 2!
