I leave for Stampin’ Up!’s Convention in just 5 days. This will be my 9th year going and it’s just so much fun in addition to learning so many new things. This is their 25th anniversary so it’s going to be a great one. There was a recent announcement that there are 5,800 demonstrators registered to go.
I have been working on swaps off and on for the last few weeks and am just about finished. No one has to take cards to swap but it’s not only fun, you come home with so many new card ideas. And there is no set number of swaps to take. You just bring home as many new cards as the number of swaps you take. There are organized swaps and general swapping. Organized swaps are just that – organized by an individual for a specific type of card. There are Christmas swaps, Halloween swaps, Masculine card swaps, Vintage swaps, Wow card swaps, full card swaps, and the list goes on and on. So I signed up for a Wow swap that has to be a full card. A Wow card is one that would pretty much make someone say “Wow, that’s a great card”. It has to have layering and embellishments on it. Most organized swaps have a specific number of people who can sign up so that determines how many cards you need to make. My organized swap is for 75 cards. I also like to take other cards for general swapping. These are usually just a card front. It saves paper and takes less time to make. That is just done with anyone you see who is swapping and believe me there are demonstrators all over doing this. So this is what I have:
103 full cards and 32 card fronts
I do have a few days before I leave so I just might make a few more to take. If I get them started I can finish them on the plane. I have done this several years and it’s a great way to pass the time on that long flight out to Salt Lake City.
Thanks for Stopping by,
