Creative Connections 2023 & Carousel Horses Birthday Card

At the end of July, I attended my first ever Creative Connections event. It was so much fun, I got to go with my upline Sue Kremer and downline Alicia Markfort, connect with other demo friends (and meet some in person for the first time!) and Sara Douglass, Stampin’ Up! CEO was there too!

Here are some photos from the day:

It was a fun day filled with thousands of card samples, creative presentations, swapping, visiting with other awesome demos and more! The four hours really flew by fast.

One of the best parts about in person stamping events is the card swapping! Take a look at the swap cards I received below:

Here’s a look at the card that I made to swap with. I used the Carousel Horses bundle from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog and love how this card turned out!!

Creative Connections is exclusive to demonstrators whose team leaders are helping out. I was fortunate that Sue was helping during the event so Alicia and I got to attend live! If you’re interested in joining us next year, I encourage you to do so! The live event takes place in Medina, MN and there is a virtual offering too.

There is nothing like a live event where everyone in the room has the similar love of stamping!! Learn more about becoming a demonstrator here.

Today’s card is part of this week’s Create in Color Challenge!

Here’s the color combo for this week! If you’d like to participate in this week’s challenge, make a project using some (or all!) of the colors listed above (or similar hue if you don’t have the exact color), and share it in my Facebook Group with #CreateinColorChallenge. I’m so excited to see what you create!
