Convention Swaps.

I just joined the Stampin’ Up! Family in April of 2011. And while I am brand new to Stampin’ Up! I am not new to paper crafting. Stampin’ Up! holds a convention every year in Salt Lake City, UT where its corporate headquarters are located. I was fortunate enough to be able to attend this year. I have attended other conventions but never a craft convention so I was super eager to prepare for this one! The gals and guys of SU love to swap cards. Meaning they trade the card they made for yours so they can take it home and recreate it or get inspiration from it. I had decided that I wanted to make four different styles of cards ranging from a WOW factor to a basic card. I wanted to create 25 of each design. What I didn’t count on was the sheer amount of work it took complete. You see I work in the Finance group at Microsoft and May, June, & July are crazy busy times for us, so my hours were long and I had little time to get my swaps completed. Thank goodness I have a crafty daughter, niece, and mother! They helped me put my cards together of the month. I designed each card early so I wouldn’t have to do it last minute.

Here are my designs!
