OH MY GOSH!!!!! It is SO GREAT to "work" for such a great company. Stampin' Up!'s Annual Convention in Salt Lake City is fantastic!!! We paid $280.00 for convention. Then, if you signed up early, you only paid $250.00. Then...OK, I am going to be saying this alot! Then, we get to Convention and the first thing we do is pick up our Convention Bag, filled with FREE stamp sets and an exclusive Catalog with it's own binder, value $25.00. The Bag is exactly like a Demonstrator bag that demonstrators can buy for $47.95 + ship/tax. BUT this bag is embroidered with some adorable flowers on the front. The stamp sets from the new catalog, sell for $80.80 again, no ship/tax added. Are you adding this up!!!! Then we attend a HUGE party, swapping going on, where some people were picked to play games and win prizes. There were stamping demonstrations set up all around demonstrating techniques and products. Display boards with hundreds, OK thousands of projects, cards posted on them. All of this, no cost..part of the original cost of Convention. THEN, Convention starts and I have posted some of the highlights on previous posts so I won't bore you with those. BUT we received FREE a Simply Sent Kit (in back of catalog - $12.95), a whole package of NEW Holiday Mini catalogs, our regular cost of those, $3.50. A Workshop in a Bag - Has everything needed for a workshop for 10 people, except a stamp set and ink...embellishments, card stock, envelopes...value $30.00. Then we had our make and take projects, full color directions, all the paper supplies and embellishments needed..$20.00 value. Then, we had FREE classes to attend and if we attended all of our classes, we got a FREE stamp set.....This one is for demonstrators though, but I figure the value is $20.00. Then, yesterday, at the end of Convention, we all were given a FREE stamp set, Hostess set from the new upcoming Holiday mini and a My Digital Studio CD filled with lots of goodies for Digital Scrap booking/card making and more, value: $43.00. Total for all the FREE stuff!!!!! $280.00!!! original cost of convention!!! The Convention Experience ......PRICELESS.
