The Stampin' Up! 25th Anniversary US Convention was something else! So many activities on offer and things to do!
At the Opening Night Party, one of the highlights (besides the karaoke!!) was a Guiness World Record attempt to post the most cards from a single location. Of course, knowing what Stampin' Up! Demonstrators are like, we blitzed it!!
I took four cards to post - here's me purchasing my postage stamps (as opposed to rubber stamps LOL) from the US Postal Services team at the event. (p.s. they only counted one card per person!!).
LOL, I didn't know how hard it was going to be in the first few hours after landing in the USA, in a dimly lit room to work out which US coins were what!! Who still has one & two cent pieces anyway?? To be honest, I think even at the end of the trip I was still peering at the coins questioningly to try and work out what they were!
After getting my postage stamps, I did a quick pose with the Postal Service delivery guy - I bet his van was chock full after this event!
I just LOVED how everyone in attendance was so enthusiastic to participate in this event! The queue to have your cards counted looped around the ginormous room and ladies waited for over an hour for their turn to have their envelopes checked and their photo with the official from Guiness. Here's the Official Report.
What a lot of fun and what a great idea Stampin' Up!
Oh, and what card did I make? I used the new Six Sided Sampler & Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Sets and some lovely new colours to make these cute, note sized cards:
Love both these stamp sets to death!! You will be seeing lots more of them!
Back later with more US Trip highlights.
