Fun Stampers Journey Convention – Recap Day 0

Fun Stampers Journey Convention 2016

Hello Stampers and thanks for visiting my blog again.  I’ve been back from Convention for over a week but I had so much fun, it took me some time to recover.  I want to share all of the fun and photos from the Annual Fun Stampers Journey Convention but there’s just too much to share in 1 post.  I’ll be sharing each day in a new post so keep coming back for more.

Day 0 – Journey to Arizona and the Celebrate You Party

This day started off at 4am and a drive to Arizona to beat the heat.  I travelled with my team and we had a good time traveling to Arizona and arrived around 10am.  We checked into our room at the resort, checked in with the Journey crew for Convention registration and had a nice lunch before we headed off to our Journey Station tour.


At convention registration, I received a special celebrate badge along with a special invitation from Gabby and Richard Garay to the Manager’s Reception Celebration.  I was so excited to receive that honor and can’t wait to share my post on that later.

The Journey Station tour was a fun ride hosted by Lynn Leusch to and from the Journey Station.  I got to meet new coaches on the bus ride and also see a lot of old friends.  I absolutely love my Journey Coach family.

After some relaxation at the resort, it was time to head down for the Celebrate You reception party.  Richard Garay and the entire Journey crew really made us all feel so special with this celebration! The FSDivas took a quick photo at the photo booth station before enjoying our dinner, drinks and appetizers.  I enjoyed watching Journey Crew members get dunked in the dunk tank and enjoyed visiting the other game stations.  I also took a live video on periscope and shared video with my team on our private team page.  If you’re on periscope, follow me @alex_stamps.

Simpy Amazing – CYCI#124

Watercolor challenge entry by Alex Stamps

Make today Simply Amazing! I had an amazing time at our annual Fun Stampers Journey convention last week and I finally got to play with some of our new products releasing on July 1st.

For this card I used a dry water coloring technique using stamps and our new pan pastels.  First I stamped in black licorice ink using our new Peach Blossom stamp set.  Then, I used our Rich Sorbets pan pastel palette to further enhance the water coloring feel.  I used our clear pigment ink to stamp the Simply Amazing sentiment from our Be Amazing collection and  gold embossing powder to get the gilded effect.  Hope you like it!

If you’re interested in any of the products I used, please let me know.  Our new 2016-2017 Inspiration Book and Catalog launches on July 1st, 2016. I cannot wait!!!
