Posted below are more of the beautiful convention card swaps I received last week from other Stampin' Up! demonstrators.  I enjoyed swapping with these ladies so much, and can't wait to go to convention next year to swap again.

I made this beautiful Christmas collage using a sectional collage box from 7 Gyspies, and then I cut out each Christmas design three times creating a 3D effect.  This was so much fun making and I'm sure my family will enjoy it during the Christmas Holiday.

I hope you enjoy these card swaps I brought back from convention, and perhaps you can get some ideas for your own creations.

I received so many card swaps while attending convention.  For the next couple of days I will post some of them here.  I will also list the name of the demonstrator who created the card.

Thank you ladies for all these beautiful cards.


I arrived home from Salt Lake City last night.  I stayed on a few extra days after convention to tour Park City, Utah where the 2002 Winter Olympic took place.  I had a wonderful time visiting this very beautiful, mountainous village full of unique shops, restaurants, pubs and of course ski slopes.

Convention "I AM" was absolutely fantastic!!  From the gorgeous decorated stage, to the fabulous classes, speakers, FREEBIES GALORE, swaps, and all the wonderful demonstrators I met, I didn't want any of it to end. I will have to wait until July18, 2013 to do it all over again.  Posted below are just a few of the many pictures I took.

There were rows and rows and rows of sample boards displaying gorgeous cards that Stampin' Up! prepared for convention.

And more FREE products!!

Stampin' Up! gave all demonstrators attending convention this fabulous bag full of stamp sets, glue stick, catalog, and so much more.  I was so excited!!
Some of the fun items I purchased at the Stampin' Up! Momento Mall for my customers.

Tonight or tomorrow I will start posting some of the wonderful swap cards I received from other demonstrators.
