This is us on a tour of the beautiful Riverton, Utah Stampin' Up! headquarters. I know she may not like this photo since she has her glasses on, but I think it's cute! We certainly had a great time together! And as tradition holds, we exchanged roommate gifts... You can view the wonderful gift she gave me at this post. It was brilliant!! I tucked my business receipts in there and even got a nice list going of some new contacts I made.
And, as every convention attender needs a notebook... here is what I made for Jackie:
This is a simple marble composition notebook (those black and white ones) that I covered with two different patterns in the NEW Bella Rose DSP - this is definitely one of my favorite new DSPs... I even bought a new Stampin' Up! apron at convention made with this flowery pattern! I stamped a flower from Pretty Peony, cut it out, and adhered it directly to the front of the notebook. This is a gorgeous set that makes beautiful flowers - don't forget that my August Stamp-a-Stack features it as well! The sentiment comes from the NEW Heard From the Heart, which is going to be one of my favorites to use - I love the combination of cursive and print. Then I finished it off with some Old Olive Wide Grosgrain ribbon.
I also made Jackie a matching box that she can put on her desk to hold pens/pencils/scissors:
Again, it uses the Bella Rose DSP, Pretty Peony, and Old Olive Wide Grosgrain, but I also added a couple of Ruby Red brads and this sentiment comes from one of the NEW Level III Hostess sets called Happiness Always. If you like this box, you can see some of my others here, here, here, and here.
My next post will be announcing the winner of the Blog Candy - and since the comments are still trickling in, I will cut the time off at 8pm tonight (Central time) and announce the winner after that! Good luck!
