Stampin' Up! Convention 2012: Riverton Campus Tour Part 1

The day before Convention began, Stampin' Up! provided shuttle buses from Salt Palace Convention Center to the SU Riverton Campus for tours from 9 AM to 7:30 PM.  It was about half hour ride one way and I spent about an hour on the tour.  I would've taken more time but I needed to get back for another event that evening. 
Stampin' Up! Headquarters in Riverton, UT
As you walk in, there were several employees who greeted us at the main entrance and immediately we got to view the two-level atrium.

To the left from the main entrance was the Legacy Museum.  There were photos of the Gardner family and the history of Stampin' Up!  There was even the very first catalog ever published.

Then there were the  Definitely Decorative displays created by SU concept artists...sooo much to take in!  And this is just the hallway :)

It was so fun to look at how they used SU products for home decor.

There were several "creative corners" as well...a craft desk, sewing area and a vintage office.  I like the furniture they used, a couple of pieces looked like they came from Pottery Barn.
