Hi everyone, I wanted to fill you in on my week in Utah. I flew out for the annual Stampin' Up! OnStage Convention and added some sight-seeing and a tour of the manufacturing facility.
I met my friend and fellow demonstrator, Melissa Kerman in Salt Lake City on Sunday morning and we headed to Bryce Canyon. We were there for sunset and it was just so amazing.
We stayed in Kanab Sunday night and went on a tour of the Stampin' Up! manufacturing facility on Monday morning. I don't have pictures but we were able to see how they make the rubber stamps and the photopolymer stamps. It was amazing to see this. We also saw the way the card stock is cut. The people working there were so nice.
After the tour, we drove to Zion National Park. From Bryce you are on top, looking down and from Zion, you go to the bottom and look up. Different perspectives, but just as amazing. That bottom picture is of Melissa.
We stayed overnight in Springdale, just outside of Zion Park and the views from our hotel were beautiful. On Tuesday, we drove to Cedar Breaks and drove up to the top of Brian Head Peak, elevation 11,307. I felt like we were on top of the world.
We stayed in Cedar City and then headed back to Salt Lake City for OnStage. The convention was Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Below are some pictures of my team at the convention, lunch and dinner. The last picture is with Brandy Cox, one of the million dollar demonstrators. There were a lot of top demonstrators there and it was so nice to talk with them.
I can't show pictures of all the goodies we saw but you will be seeing them soon. We were able to see the new Occasions Catalog along with Sale-A-Bration. We played with new stamps and saw demonstrations on the amazing new STAMPARATUS (see my prior blog post on this new tool).
I had a wonderful time and met in person so many fabulous women. My team and leaders are the best and we had some really sweet time together. I will definitely do this again next year.
