Convention 2008 Announcements from Stampin Up!... WOW!

Convention was so much fun... and there were so many announcements and new products that my head is still reeling! 

There were so many people at convention, I am so glad that many of you shared swaps and business cards!  One of the celebrities attending the convention was the one and only Ronald McDonald, who came to represent a wonderful charitable organization, the "Ronald McDonald House".  Stampin' Up! designs a new stamp set to  benefit this organization each year.  This years' set will also be featured on the inside back cover of the catalog, and once again $2.00 from each sale will be contributed to the Ronald McDonald House (RMC).  At this years' convention, Stampin' Up! presented RMC with a check for $126,000.00 which was a combination of sale proceeds as well as a direct donation from the SU! corporation!  I have to say, Stampin' UP! is an absolutely fabulous company, and I'm honored to be an associate!

Another highlight of the convention was when UPS trucks drove onto the convention floor and hand-delivered the new Ronald McDonald Stamp Set "Say it with Scallops" to each and every demonstrator in attendance!!!  WOW!  Hold on to your seats... not only did UPS deliver the stamp sets personally, but they also DONATED them!  Double WOW!  The Say it with Scallops set (#111678 $17.95) features four images which coordinate with THE NEW SCALLOP SQUARE PUNCH (#112081 $15.95)!!  Is your wish list growing?? Perhaps you should think about being a workshop or book party hostess!!  With $300.00 in orders, you could earn these two items  and a hostess stamp set FREE!!

bigshot_su_slf_Aug08One of the most exciting announcements was the partnership with the Sizzix Big Shot, a phenomenal die cutting and embossing machine!  Shelli Gardner, Owner and CEO of Stampin' Up! also took the time to show us phenomenal projects made with several of the new dies. 

On the last day of the convention, we were given a sneak peak of future product releases hidden within a video presentation which we watched twice.  I saw beautiful embossed wallpaper in the Barbie playhouse, and I'm DIE - ing to get my hands on that embossing folder!  I can't wait to share this wonderful new product with you... and YOU will be able to get your hands on it September 2nd... WOW!  This is going to be FUN!
