This morning we had pyrotechnics at the opening of General Session.
Watercolor Thank You which is the one I got...yay!
The big reveal this morning was the Holiday Catalog which starts August 28th. Here's the cover...I can't show the inside, but I'll post projects made with the sets.
Becky Higgins from Project Life also visited with us to talk about Project Life by Stampin' Up!
After General Session, we attended some classes and then went to our 1st Make'n'Take Session where we made a couple of cards using the Kinda Eclectic stamp set.
I couldn't have been so successful this year without the support of all my wonderful stamping friends. Teaching classes really brings me a lot of happiness. And, another surprise...I found out last week that I can take my daughter that lives in Canada as my guest to Hawaii. I wasn't sure if Stampin' Up! would do that, but they will!
In the evening, we had optional creative classes we could attend. Leslie went to a Make'n'Take class, and Bev and I went to the MDS Unplugged class with Holly Linford. She showed us how to do some cool decor items using MDS to decorate coasters, make customized pillows, etch glass, and make chalkboard art. Now I need to buy an e-cutter!
I can't wait to have more fun tomorrow making projects, exploring more in the resource center, shopping in the Convention Store for new Holiday Catalog products, and going to the awards night celebration and after party.
