Our 10th birthday celebration kick off in Utah – Part 2

Our 10th birthday celebration kick off in Utah – Part 2

 Happy Saturday friends! I'm thrilled you joined me today for Part 2 of my Utah tour recap. I encourage you to get comfortable! If you didn't read the blog yesterday, you can catch up on Part 1 here (and there's a giveaway too!)  I was in Utah for almost a week kicking off our 10th birthday celebration and what a week it was. My mother-in-law would have loved that with each stop I made, I came bearing treats for our friends and their teams. We worked with Bubble & Brown bakery and each morning boxes of sweet treats were delivered to the hotel to take with me. And they were loved by all! While you can't quite see it, we used the Heidi Swapp Minc to make our celebration cards look extra good and shiny! Thanks Heidi!

Treats

On Tuesday morning I woke to a stunning sunrise over the mountains and knew it was going to be a great day. I took pictures along the way at each stop I made this week but with an iPhone so please don't mind the fact they're not perfect. I wanted to capture the memory in a quick and easy way.

My first stop Tuesday was to see our friends at Stampin' Up! which is a place I have heard so much about and always wanted to see. I met Rachel who you will see below who took me on a tour of the Visitor's Centre which is like a beautiful timeline of the company mixed with adorable little rooms showcasing their beautiful products and design team. I could have stayed here for so long looking at all the amazing artwork. Rachel then took me on a tour of the warehouse which was nothing less than extraordinary. Although the picture does not do it justice, the conveyor belts and tracking systems ensure orders are packed with minimal error. Clean, amazing and efficient! Love technology.  Here is the tour…

Next stop on Tuesday was to meet with our sweet friends at BoBunny! BoBunny has always been an important partner to SCT. So long ago when I was starting the magazine and introduced myself to Jan, the owner of BoBunny, she immediately sat down with me and wanted to know everything about the magazine. Jan was one of the first advertisers and would always email me a little note when she received the magazine in the office telling me how much she loved it. It meant a lot in those early days. Below is a picture of the team of amazing people I get to work with at BoBunny. Matthew (Jan's son), Laurel, Jeri and Carley. Great team. We also got a sneak peek in the office but with new products all around I was limited for pictures. All I can say is there are great things coming out and I was thrilled they shared a little sneak peek!

 That's a lot of love for SCT they said!

Tuesday evening was dinner with some friends at the Cheesecake Factory in City Creek which is in beautiful downtown Salt Lake and preparation for our final day in Utah! And for one of the first time's ever…I actually ordered some cheesecake! Like I said yesterday, I really did eat my way through Utah!

Wednesday was a very full day of meetings. My first stop was to meet with Jill Broadbent at Close To My Heart. A very sweet and knowledgeable friend that has been with Close To My Heart for 12 years and loves it so much. She is also adorable and could be my twin with her cardigan. We share a love for them! We chatted about many things and what's in store for 2016! Good things!

 Next I head to meet with our friends at Echo Park and as you can see from the picture, these are some fun friends.  A selfie shenanigan just had to happen! Jennifer, Andrea, Nathanael, Madison and I had many laughs together that afternoon and I was so sorry to go. Before I did they shared with me some of the amazing things coming in 2016 and believe me when I say, you're going to LOVE what they have in store for you! I may have squealed a little. After 10 years in the business, I still get very excited when I see the level of innovation in the industry.

Our final stop in our Utah tour was with our friends from American Crafts. Megan, our Editor-in-Chief, and I were treated to a grand tour of their beautiful offices by none other than Rebecca Cross of Pink Paislee and Marketing Director Grant Madsen. With over 200 employees and two floors of an office building the tour was amazing! We met people from all areas of the company and even had an opportunity to meet the CEO, Sarah DeVoll. A lovely lady with a clear vision for this great company.  

AC1

 

 Here we take a walk past the actual product designers and the art department. This room had a great vibe and great energy. Happy people! We wish we could have shown you more but we sure would not want to spoil what you'll be seeing on store shelves soon!

AC2

This next picture below while it gives you an idea of their showroom, it certainly does not show it all! There were 8 aisles that were easily 25 feet long of products on both sides. In fact, here's a little tidbit, American Crafts and their brands have over 14 thousand active products available. An amazing number! We walked through each aisle admiring the design, the innovation and clearly a very smart team. I wanted one of just about everything new we saw. I may have even been a little speechless at times! And who knows me to be that?

AC4

But here is how nice our friends at American Crafts are, this below is what was waiting to greet us when we arrived along with a beautiful card. Thank you American Crafts for all the love and support for SCT! 

Ac5

Thank you to Stampin' Up!, BoBunny, Close To My Heart, Echo Park and American Crafts for two incredible days. We were welcomed like family at each place and thanked for all that we do here at SCT. A great feeling. It was also mentioned many, many times how much they appreciate YOU, our readers. They are always amazed at how engaged and appreciative you are and I just smiled and said "yes, our readers are pretty awesome!"  

I did have the chance to hang out with one special little lady at Cafe Rio. This is Megan's daughter Maggie who is an absolute doll.  I brought her a Cinderella backpack and a Cinderella art set to which she said "thank you nice lady!" as she skipped and danced. Made me laugh all week thinking about it!

Maggs

One of the other highlights of the trip was the tour of Temple Square in the heart of Salt Lake City with my friends from Doodlebug. John Bishop played tour guide and did an awesome job of that! 

Temple2

 And I just had to go back to get a picture at night. It truly looks like Cinderella's castle! So majestic.

Temple1

During our visit to Temple Square on Sunday, John wanted to show us the Tabernacle and when we walked in, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir was rehearsing. They sounded beautiful and I got to check off a bucket list item while I sat mesmerized! Such a great surprise. As an aside, when I was at Stampin' Up! that following Tuesday I actually met Spencer one of the choir members. A small world!

MoTab

There you have it friends! My time in Utah was a fun mix of business and pleasure…and eating! It's always nice when your business partners are your friends. I could not think of a better way to kick off what will be another great year than celebrating with some of those companies that help make it possible.

Of course I brought home many things in my suitcase for you so I have goody box number two to giveaway today to one lucky reader.  If you think you might like to welcome this box in to your home, be sure to leave me a comment below and let me know what product you just can't live without these days! Fun! Leave your comment by Thursday, November 5th! We have lots of winners to announce on Friday!

Have a great rest of your weekend and thanks for joining me today!

  4. lisa808 October 31, 2015 at 4:08 pm

    Thanks for sharing your awesome tours. Your pictures and descriptions are so interesting. Hard to pick one crafting item that I couldn’t live without! I guess I would have to say my BigShot as I use it for just about everything I create.

  5. diana October 31, 2015 at 4:08 pm

    Thanks for sharing these pics! πŸ˜‰

  6. RPomeroy October 31, 2015 at 4:11 pm

    I wouldn’t want to be without paper! Love, love scrap booking!

  8. Jani October 31, 2015 at 4:15 pm

    I also just visited Salt Lake City. Loved Temple Square and all the lovely people we met. Unfortunately I didn’t get to see all the great companies that are located in Salt Lake. I envy you. Your pictures were great–especially the night pic. Glad I could share your trip with you as you filled in a lot of missing places.

  9. Amy Cooley October 31, 2015 at 4:20 pm

    Your trip looks amaazing! I can’t live without my Big Shot machine and the Mini Minc is on my wish list!

  10. Pam Sohan October 31, 2015 at 4:23 pm

    Such fun ! I love enamel dots and wood veneer. Perfect for adding that little extra touch to a layout or card.

  11. Juliana October 31, 2015 at 4:25 pm

    Such a great tour for day 2! Paper is always my go to when it comes to scrapping and crafting!

  12. Marjorie Pinne October 31, 2015 at 4:29 pm

    Loved reading about your trip and all your visits to these great companies that I have bought product from for so many years to make my scrapbooking and card making so much fun. So hard to choose what I can’t live without but I guess it would have to be my Cricut. I use it for so many things.

  13. Helen Van Daalen October 31, 2015 at 4:32 pm

    I really like using my cuttlebug and all my embossing folders and framelits.

  14. Sandy Ross October 31, 2015 at 4:33 pm

    WOW….you are so lucky to visit those amazing companies! I can’t get enough of the new Bo Bunny Christmas lines….love the colours!

  15. Arlene October 31, 2015 at 4:36 pm

    What a fabulous travelogue! Now that is a career that I would love. And that’s something coming from a retiree up to her neck in papercrafting. Currently I am obsessed with stamps & dies – so useful for card making & scrapbooking. In fact I am still picking glitter bits off my face & my Big Shot after a day making Christmas cards!

  16. Mary Holshouser October 31, 2015 at 4:36 pm

    I pretty much get whatever I want when I see it.
    I can’t think of anything that I couldn’t live without at the moment.
    I’d love to win the surprise. Surprises are always great.
    Congratulations on your anniversary.

  17. Janice B October 31, 2015 at 4:38 pm

    Wow, Utah must be the creative capital of America. What a great trip. As to the one thing I can’t live without, I would say stickers. I need to have lots around for my granddaughter to create with. I can never seem to have enough.

  18. Missgailly October 31, 2015 at 4:44 pm

    Wow! You got to see so many great companies up close and personal! So jealous! Thanks for sharing all the pics.

  20. Diane W October 31, 2015 at 4:53 pm

    What a whirl wind tour you had – packing so much in those few days. I can’t seem to get enough dies these days. My die cutter is always on the table ready for a workout. Thanks for sharing your trip with us.

  21. Helen Gullett October 31, 2015 at 4:55 pm

    You did have amazing visits with amazing companies in Utah! I love seeing you Jill from CTMH & can’t wait to find out the good things are going to happen in 2016!

  22. Debbie October 31, 2015 at 5:00 pm

    Cheese cake AND Moron Tabernacle Choir all in the same week?! Now that’s a trip to remember!
    As for what product I can’t live without,… Paper, printed paper, plain card stock paper. The possibilities are endless when you have paper.

  23. michelle t October 31, 2015 at 5:07 pm

    That was a fantasy trip ! Thanks so much for sharing your awesome experiences and photos. I love all sorts of embellishments and stamps, but in the end, I’m a paper girl. Love my paper. Thanks for a chance to win. Michelle t

  24. Maureen W. October 31, 2015 at 5:13 pm

    I am so in love with my ScanNCut 2 – no more buying expensive coordinating dies and it can cut right up to the lines or leave a little shadow. LOVE it!!

  25. SusanDR October 31, 2015 at 5:14 pm

    I love paper. I admit I have an addiction. However, I am fascinated by the foil that is out now, and I have been slowly (collecting) and playing with it. Love it all!

  26. Judith October 31, 2015 at 5:14 pm

    Oh, my mouth is still open. Lovely people, you’ve met and all of the great products…

  27. Kris Berc October 31, 2015 at 5:14 pm

    Wow what an amazing trip that must have been! You saw so much in so little time! A great way to celebrate, indeed πŸ™‚ Lately I can’t live without all things GOLD!

    I can not live without inspiration for my scrapbooking and card making. Lots of that inspiration comes from SCT. I am truly blessed that I live in an era that has social media and blogs such as yours to keep me motivated and inspired. SCT does indeed have wonderful partners πŸ™‚

  32. Lynne in NI October 31, 2015 at 5:56 pm

    I couldn’t live without my stamps, but dies come a close second along with pretty DP πŸ™‚

  36. Jenny Scrappygirl October 31, 2015 at 6:10 pm

  39. Kelly Massman October 31, 2015 at 6:22 pm

    i just love getting new papers!!! of course, I love anything and everything related to paper crafting! i enjoyed seeing the gorgeous decor!!!!!!

  40. Peggy Sobey October 31, 2015 at 6:40 pm

    Fun.. and to think you got to see the Mormon Tabernacle and hear the choir singing. That would be so awesome – might even come before winning a prize – but the prize would be good consolation! Not sure I have a favorite scrapbook item; I pretty much love it all!

  41. Laurie Black October 31, 2015 at 6:58 pm

    What a fun trip! Thanks for sharing photos, love seeing the home bases of so many wonderful products. I can’t live without my Silhouette Cameo and Make-The-Cut! design software.

  42. Sue D October 31, 2015 at 6:59 pm

    Thanks for sharing these behind the scenes photos. I can’t live without my tonic paper cutter.

  43. Vicky Blackwell October 31, 2015 at 7:11 pm

    Looks like a wonderful trip! Right now my addiction is anything gold…paper, embellishments, etc. Thanks for the chance to win.

  44. Roxanne October 31, 2015 at 7:12 pm

    What an amazing trip!!! I’m still in awe!

  45. Tona October 31, 2015 at 7:14 pm

    All of these buildings look wonderful. What great companies.
    I have been & am still addicted to wafer thin dies. It’s an obsession, I tell you πŸ™‚ Of course a girl can never have too much paper in my book either.

  46. Roxanne October 31, 2015 at 7:14 pm

    I have a ribbon addiction….and paper…..and washi tape…..I think it could be a hoarding situation! ?

  47. DinT October 31, 2015 at 7:49 pm

    Loving my Big Shot!

  48. Geraldine October 31, 2015 at 7:50 pm

    Sounds like you are having lots of fun. Would love to win the box of goodies.

  49. Vicki October 31, 2015 at 7:53 pm

    I loved reading your post. I felt like I got to tour the companies with you and meet these amazing people. What an experience! I am still in love with my stamps, paper and ink. These are the staples I turn to over and over. I love to dabble in adding lots of extras too. Sequins, stickers, chipboard and wood embellishments are my favorite. Congrats on 10 years!!!

  50. RUBY M October 31, 2015 at 7:54 pm

    WOW Thanks for the amazing tour. It made me feel like I was there. Oh how I would have loved that. I knew that the crafting capital was Utah but didn’t realize how much until you gave us this tour. It must have been amazing for you too. I love all the new dies and machines that have come out. I can never have too many of these. I would love to get the Silhouette next. Not that I need it but I would LOVE it. Thanks for the wonderful insight of this industry with this tour. I am so looking forward to 2016 to see the upcoming and new. I was hoping the scrapbooking industry would thrive forward.

  51. Deb L October 31, 2015 at 7:56 pm

    Looks like you had a great time! It’s too hard to pick a favorite product as I love them all!

  52. Judith R October 31, 2015 at 8:05 pm

    So much eye candy to take in-what a trip. My go to is always paper, no matter how disciplined I try to be with supplies I always weaken when I see great new papers.

  53. Alma D October 31, 2015 at 8:15 pm

    I am loving the gold effects on everything. I will try get a good deal on a Minc,

  54. Sue Moody October 31, 2015 at 8:16 pm

    I love Utah when I was there in July. These pictures and all this scrappy goodness reaffirms my desire to move there!

  58. tammy kist October 31, 2015 at 8:49 pm

    I couldn’t live without my guillotine paper cutter…I use it with every project πŸ™‚

  59. Nylene October 31, 2015 at 8:51 pm

    I’m glad you enjoyed our great state. I am loving paper, but I think I’m addicted to dies right now.

  60. Doris October 31, 2015 at 9:10 pm

    I can’t live without the Misti. Really spoiled now!

  61. Janet Zeppa October 31, 2015 at 9:12 pm

    What a fantastic trip you are having!!
    I can’t seem to live without ephemera packs these days!

  62. Judy O October 31, 2015 at 9:13 pm

    What an exciting trip – I am really hooked on paper right now..just cant get enough!!!! Its the basis for all cards and scrapbooking. Sure hope there is a sheet or two in the prizes you are handing out. Happy 10th anniversary.

  63. Amy Coose October 31, 2015 at 9:13 pm

    Wow, sounds like such an amazing trip! I have to say that I am all about embellishments right now, I just can’t get enough! Thanks for sharing the love, S&CT is the BEST!

  65. Alexandra Tompras October 31, 2015 at 9:18 pm

  66. Char October 31, 2015 at 9:26 pm

  67. Gisele October 31, 2015 at 10:05 pm

    So interesting following you on your tours and seeing the background and people behind all these great companies πŸ™‚ thanks for showing us ???

  68. Gramma Dee October 31, 2015 at 10:16 pm

    Thanks for the virtual tour of Utah!
    I tend to use one tool or product for awhile, then move on to a new fav, but for something I don’t think I would want to live without, I guess it is letter stickers. Use them for titles almost all the time and often in journaling too

  69. judy October 31, 2015 at 10:27 pm

    My mouth would have been wide open in awe that entire trip! So much great stuff to see (and eat apparently!!). I love to buy and buy everything from papers to wood veneer…these are my faves.

  70. Dawn Skene October 31, 2015 at 10:34 pm

    What a marvelous trip! So many lovely pictures, especially the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. It must have been a treat to hear them sing! I can’t live without my stamps and ink!

  71. Lisa's creative niche October 31, 2015 at 10:36 pm

    Wow! So incredible!!!

  72. Kristina Beagle October 31, 2015 at 10:36 pm

    Oh Gees that’s a hard one! I guess I couldn’t possibly live without my big shot!

  73. LC October 31, 2015 at 10:47 pm

    This second part of your trip is equally as fantastic as the first! Your photos are awesome and definitely showcase all the wonderous adventures you had in Utah! I have to say that the American Crafts’ showroom is incredible!!! Like so many others, I love paper! Bright, vibrant colors and patterns are my favorite. I am also trying to add to my collection of paper punches. Since I don’t have a die cut machine, I rely on these to add different shapes or borders to the paper I love so much. Thanks again for sharing your very special trip with us. I’m sure that when you look back on your 10th anniversary, memories from the time you spent in Utah kicking off your celebration will make you smile for years to come. It’s always so exciting to have the opportunity to win goodies. Thanks for being so thoughtful and generous!

  74. Janet Cobb October 31, 2015 at 11:06 pm

    Goody boxes are always most welcome in my home!!!! Paper is my must have product…if you have a good selection of papers you are set!

  75. Alison October 31, 2015 at 11:08 pm

    I can’t live without patterned paper! So many pretty designs and so much inspiration in a fairly small thing. And now I’m thinking I can’t live without some cheesecake, lol.

  76. Angela A October 31, 2015 at 11:14 pm

    What an amazing trip! You saw so many cool places and meet even cooler people! The one thing I can’t live without is anything by Echo Park! Love love love them!

  77. Jen Naus October 31, 2015 at 11:22 pm

    It must’ve been like being a little kid in the candy stores at each of your visits! How exciting and fun!

  78. Sandy Clinton October 31, 2015 at 11:28 pm

    Sounds like you had a great trip, Catherine! I am LOVING our Minc machine right now – its new, you know! Thanks for letting us ‘park’ it in your booth for a while!

  79. Nita K. October 31, 2015 at 11:30 pm

    These posts are fun! I am loving all things gold right now. Gold foil is one of my favorites.

  80. Johanne K October 31, 2015 at 11:36 pm

    I can not live without paper. What an amazing trip you had. I’m looking forward to seeing the new products coming in 2016. Thanks for sharing your trip with all of us.

  81. Kyle October 31, 2015 at 11:46 pm

    I need my paper cutter, always and forever! Thanks for the chance to win!!

  82. Dorina D November 1, 2015 at 12:39 am

    WOW! It must be so fun to travel with you. Love the treats you took to each of the partners and how fun it was seeing bits and pieces of your visits with each company. My must have product this year besides the Fuse is the Christmas Album from Simple Stories. Other than that, anytime I get a surprise from SCT, it’s a GREAT day!. You have the best surprises. Congratulations on 10 great years and I look forward to getting your magazine for many more years.

  83. Deborah Rikard November 1, 2015 at 12:45 am

    Can I go with you next trip! Looks like so much fun. I can’t live without my dies. I reach for them all the time.

  84. Mai November 1, 2015 at 1:02 am

    Gorgeous decor! I definitely can’t live without my Silhouette. Thanks for the chance!

  85. karenladd November 1, 2015 at 1:03 am

    WOW! Just looking at the outside of the Stampin Up building makes my heart go pitter patter!! I would have had to tear myself away from all those showrooms and warehouses full of fabulous products by all the manufacturers! So much fun in one place would put me on overload for sure. Thanks for letting us come along on your crafty adventure. As for favorite goodies lately, I am just fascinated with Brusho color pigment powders and am also trying my best to learn how to use alcohol markers.

    Glad to see you were able to cross a few things from your bucket list as well as visit with business partners – who really are friends.

  133. Donna Sue November 1, 2015 at 9:18 pm

  154. Cheryl November 2, 2015 at 2:37 pm

    Basic kind of gal – Herma tabs. Store here currently hasn’t restocked, so will have to watch my usage until I can get out of town.

  155. HeatherH November 2, 2015 at 3:20 pm

    Your tour looks like lots of fun! In terms of what I can’t live without, although I don’t really need more of it, paper is always the thing that draws me the most in scrapbooking supplies.

  181. Brenda Kroeker November 3, 2015 at 9:46 pm

    I can’t live without my stamps from Stampin’ Up! They are simply the best! But paper is a close second, you can never have enough paper!

  182. Kristen November 3, 2015 at 9:57 pm

  190. Stacy Goodale November 4, 2015 at 5:39 am

    Great conclusion to your visit. I’ve been really impressed with all things American Crafts these days, as a scrapbooker and a businesswoman. Their products are new and fresh and they have really taken a leap forward in the last few years with their partnerships with big name scrapbook names/brands – Becky, Heidi, Amy, Lizzy etc.

  191. Lisa November 4, 2015 at 6:32 am

    Thank you for sharing your trip. Any lady would have been in heaven to do that trip. I don’t think I could live without my die cutting machine.

    Such a pleasure to meet with you and visit you for a few minutes during your visit to Stampin’ Up! I’m also glad you had the opportunity to hear us rehearsing in the tabernacle when you were in town. I hope our paths cross again the next time you visit Utah!

    Another day of gifts and visits to exciting places most of us don’t get to see! The pictures, again, were very nice. I have been to Salt Lake City and it is quite beautiful. I have a Minc foil machine and I think the foil really looks pretty. I want every color of foil they have! Thanks for the 2 days of blogging and also for the chance to win!

    Just put Utah on my bucket list. The little girl is adorable.I think I couldn’t live without my “Big Shot”–as old as it is. That and I love PAPER!!!!

    amazing trip-thanks for sharing your adventures! I am especially intrigued by what Echo Park has up their sleeve!!!! My very favorite thing is my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen-it adds just the right amount of shimmer to my projects.

    Loved looking at your pictures and seeing all the beautiful places you got to see on your trip. Like a lot of people, I love all the shiny foil paper, especially the gold. Thanks for sharing.

    What a awesome trip! Thanks for sharing. I would love more dies/embossing folders as I finally am using my Big Shot. Love stamping up items too. Thanks for the chance to win some goodies!!!

    Can’t live without my old Fiskars cutter. Next up is my non-stick scissors.

    Embossing with Cuttlebug is a great way to quickly add dimension to my cards and scrapbook pages.

    I love paper, lots and lots of paper! I am just returning today from Salt Lake City, ate at the Cheesecake factory and heard the choir as well! Would love to win a little treat πŸ™‚

    I love it when an industry is a happy place, not just a competitive market place! Catherine, you have shown us that this art industry is just that. THANK YOU. You made my day! I was smiling all the way through your tour! ? ???❀️
