Convention 2012: Swaps

Published by under cards | Jun 27 2012

One of the best things about our annual Convention for Stampin' Up! demonstrators is swapping finished projects with other 'demos'. This is seriously good fun!

This year I went off to Convention with a box of 3D projects and cards. It was all very good in theory, but I kinda underestimated how much extra room they'd take up in the suitcase (note to self: assemble 3Ds at destination next time or get a bigger suitcase! lol)

The pillow box handbags were created by adhering the lovely Stampin' Up! fabric to cardstock which I talked about back in this post. I loved them so much I thought I'd make a few dozen!


And here are some photos of us swapping on the first day of Convention.



Back at the hotel room we checked out each other's swaps and took photos of those we didn't get. It's all part of sharing ideas. Great stuff.

Here's just a small selection of the lovely swaps and special gifts I received from fellow demonstrators.


Of course there is no way any of us could swap with every demonstrator, but luckily for us Stampin' Up! put together lovely display boards so we could 'ooh' and 'aah' over all the great ideas.

Here are just a couple. Come along to Convention with us next year in Brisvegas as a demonstrator to see even more!


p.s. A quick hello to the lovely ladies I met on Saturday at our fundraiser event. I had such an enjoyable day and LOVE my teacups – hehehe.


Happy stamping,
