Convention Update #2 AND BLOG CANDY!!!

JoLynn created a fantastic 12 x 12 album today called, "A Year's Worth of Memories". Each layout had a page for pictures and a calendar page for each month. The album turned out beautifully and you'll just have to see it in person. Here's one layout for you to check out now.



Lisa came back with me after visiting the Mathnasium and we met JoLynn for dinner. She gave me and JoLynn some souvenirs to take back with us to Illinois and here we are modeling them. Jessie--we have one for you, too! Seeing Lisa has been such a great addition to our little scrapbooking trip!



JoLynn and I ended our evening at an album crop where we made a 6 x 6 album with the theme being, "My Favorite Things". Vendors donated supplies for each layout so I was a little disappointed that there was no consistency with colors, etc... BUT it's still a cute little album. I'm trying not to be too much of a Debbie Downer so let me focus on the positive. Technique Tuesday provided a really cute acrylic stamp set for us and that was awesome! There was this little flourish stamp that we used with a scallop circle chipboard piece--trust me, you'll be using this little stamp sometime soon at stamp camp! It was such a cute little accent.

We got some free magazines and one of them was Creating Keepsakes. Since JoLynn already has a subscription, she's giving up her copy as our first blog candy giveaway this weekend! YEAH, JoLynn! So, do you want to win? Just leave a comment here telling us what your favorite Stampin' Up! product is. We'll use Random.org to draw our winner tomorrow night. Have your comments in by 8:00 PM central time.


Wish you were here!

I love the SU cardstock, and the fact that all the colors coordinate with the inks, markers, etc.

Kelly said...

I too love the cardstock and coordinating inks, etc. But a close second is the Designer Series paper. Bring back the latest and greatest ideas!

Gina Wrona said...

How could I even begin to limit it to just 1 favorite product?

I love everything from the stamps to pencils, ink pads, ribbon, embossing powders, glitter, and so on and so on.

Of course, the new incolors card stock too!

I don't think I could list all my favourite SU items. If I had to pick one, maybe my watercolour crayons.
