I wanted to share my convention swaps with you and for those who aren't familiar with swaps...here's the 20: Attendees at any demonstrator function can choose to swap card fronts or entire cards, 3-D items, tags, etc. with one another to get new ideas for workshops and personal stamping. For instance, although I will swap with anyone who asks, if given a choice of cards, I will choose one that features a stamp set that I do not have so I can add that one to my current catalog card collection (and it will probably be on my next order!). All projects use only current catalog or promotional products. It is also a terrific way to get to know other demonstrators.
I made one general swap card front and also made a tag for an organized tag swap. My cards feature the new In Colors, which I absolutely love, love. I used A LOT of supplies for these projects...but they were still came together pretty fast. I really wanted my swaps to be an example of my best work.
Supplies (all Stampin' Up!): Stamps: Chalk Talk, Tape It, Daydream Medallions, Shop Around, Notable Notions; Paper: Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantalope, Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White, Cardstock Vellum; Ink: Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantalope, Pistachio Pudding, Coastal Cabana; Accessories: Adorning Accents and Designer Frames Embossing Folders, Large Oval Punch, Basic Pearls and Rhinestones, Vintage Faceted Button, Small Butterfly Punch, Champagne and Silver Glimmer Paper, Paper Doilies, 7/8' Burlap Inspired Trim, Paper Snips, Big Shot, Linen Thread, Adhesives
I will post some of the terrific swaps I got in return in a day or so.
Thanks for staying with me and Blessings,

(I know I have been AWOL for way too long. But I am back and energized!)
I never thought I would have the opportunity to go to convention, but all the planets aligned just right and I made my way to Salt Lake City a couple of weeks ago and joined with 5800 demonstrators from across the world to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of this great company.
Sweet hubby enjoyed Salt Lake City (beau-ti-ful) while I was celebrated and overwhelmed with the talent of our Home Office crew. The training was awesome, as was the new products and promotions introduced during convention.
Here's CEO and Co-Founder Shelli Gardner during opening session looking as fabulous as she is sweet and caring. I am always inspired just being around her.
And here we are raring to go....
I will keep this short, but stay tuned for several more posts about convention and the upcoming exciting announcements I can share with you about moving forward with Stampin' Up!
Blessings and thanks for looking!
