My Take Aways from Convention

July 21-25 I was lucky enough to be able to attend the Stampin Up annual convention in Salt Lake City.  Not only was this my first convention it was my first time in Salt Lake, or actually first time in Utah.  I can now check that state off my list to visit.  Here are some pics from my trip.  In a later post I’ll share some pics of the special people I met and shared time with while there. Stampin UP

Me at the Stampin Up headquarters.  There are two of these rocks at the entrance and a common picture location

This is a picture from the parking lot of Stampin Up home office.  How would you like to see that every workday.  Beautiful.

I took this picture on the bus ride. The orange color is part of a copper mine.  Lots of copper is very prevelant and Salt Lake hosts one of the largest Copper Mines.

Having lunch in the Joseph P Smith building allowed for this lovely view of the Morman Temple.  Only active members of the Morman faith are allowed inside the temple but the outside is stunning to look at for all the rest.

Here is a peek at what I brought home from the convention courtesy  of Stampin Up.

My fabulous up-lines Brian Kink, Pam Morris, Mary Fish and Lisa Pretto gave all their downlines these fabulous goodies.

About Lynn

Thanks for visiting my Site. My name is Lynn Kolcun and I'm a Stampin Up Demonstrator. I love being creative with paper and ink, learning new techniques and sharing my craft with you.


  1. Great pictures, Lynn! It was great to spend time with you in SLC – Atlanta will be here before we know it. 🙂

  2. What a fun post! Looks like you made the most of convention and I can’t wait to see you in October!

  3. I love the Paper Pumpkin stamp set! Where does a demonstrator order that? I couldn’t find it.

    • Hi KJ, I’m not sure how they are going to get that stamp set out to other demonstrators. It was only available for us to purchase while at convention but I suspect it will be a Demonstrator only offering coming up soon.


  4. Thank you for replying.
