For the Leadership Event I just went to, I cut back on my swaps!  I only made 130.  For convention last summer I made over 300.... this suitcase was dedicated to swaps and some of the free stamp sets we received as gifts at convention.  :)

More display boards

Here's my friend and downline, Michelle DeRidder, looking at the display boards from convention last summer.  They had about 6-8 rows of boards!


One of the best aspects of our Stampin' Up! events is the display boards.  They set up huge board with over a thousand cards, 3D items and amazing paper crafted art projects!  Here are a few projects from convention last summer.  Can you believe these are made out of paper?

Experimenting with photography and simple cards

One of the things I want to learn more about is photography....  Here's an experiment.  Does it look any different than my normal blog posts?  Be honest!

I was also experimenting by making a simple card.  My challenge was to use 3 colors, 1 image stamp set, 1 greeting stamp set and 1 punch.

This card uses:
- Color combo:  So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Perfect Plum
- Mixed Bunch Stamp Set (125537 clear-mount, 125532 wood-mount)
- Made for You Stamp Set (126342 clear-mount, 126340 wood-mount)
- Blossom Punch (125603)

Sanity Prevails...

Hi there,
Sanity is prevailing and I have decided to reschedule this Saturday's open house.  Having just returned from Leadership, I did not get time to recover before returning to work on Monday.  I have SOOOO much to share with you, I want to do it right.  :)  I will keep you posted!

My swaps are ready!

Just a few days before I am off to Orlando for the Stampin' Up! Leadership Convention!    130 swaps are ready to go!   I cut back this time because 300+ was just too many for this time of year!
