We toured the Home Office in Riverton, Utah again this year. Every year they change the rooms and it is more beautiful than the year before. I wish I had an ounce of this creativity when it comes to decorating with SU! products. I just love, love, love looking at the rooms.
I know it is hard to see, but they took my favorite Flower Fusion die-cut and created buds and flowers on this branch. It was such a beautiful tree!!

The wall was decorated with ribbons and tacks, where the ribbons intersected. They used clips and other decor items to hang photos. It was so simple and clever. Not even a bulletin board...the wall!!
The sewing room was so vintage and cool. I could stand there and stare at it forever...and I don't even know how to thread a needle! So many, many elements going on in here.

Close up of the body thingy...what are these called?? The Simply Adorned jewelry was just gorgeous displayed on it!

'My' room. Unfortunately Stampin' Up! has it in their home office, so I could only visit. I would love to have this space in my house!!

I'm probably caught on security camera, but I just had to sit in 'my' chair! I could do some serious creating in this environment...do you think they would ship it to me? All of it, even the floor and the wall and the pillow...ok, I'll compromise on the pillow. Ü

Although you should not store your SU! markers vertical, isn't this a darling display of tools with the chalkboard Decor Elements labels? I have some, they are still in the package...I'll get to them someday.
Touring through Demonstrator Support, there were lots of fun things to look at on the employees desks. This was a display on a filing cabinet...ya, they might be a few mints short. Ü The center sign says "What will your next event be called?" (or something like that) and the examples are Cards-n-Candy and Chics-n-Chocolate. I've never really named an event like that, have you?

How about this in your kitchen? Well, it kind of is. This beautiful water feature is in the middle of all the tables and chairs where the employees of Stampin' Up! eat lunch and take breaks. Simply beautiful and so tranquil!!

The production floor was fascinating. They were filling orders on the pick line, running the boxes along the conveyor belt then to the tape machine and onto shipping. This place was immaculate, there wasn't even a piece of paper on the floor! Very impressive...a little warm in there but very impressive!


Thank you Stampin' Up! for allowing us to look into your day to day activities. Ü

  5. Oh my goodness. What amazing ideas and displays. I can see why you'd like that room. Amazing. Did they mention where they get all the cool baskets and desk and stuff? Those baskets on the sewing wall - what a great idea! And that ribbon wall / photo display in the first room, wowzers! Looks like I'm gonna have some projects in my head today! ;)

  6. Well, being as no one has told you yet what that body thingy is, It's called a "dress form." I used to be a seamstress. Cute displays
