I'm SO stinkin' EXCITED!!! Stampin' UP! is doing a Regional event in Hamilton...and it's just 12 days away!
Every year, Stampin' UP! puts on a BIG convention in Salt Lake City. Next year, it's Stampin' UP!'s 25th anniversary and I'll be going - it'll be my first time!
Throughout the year, Stampin' UP! puts on a "travelling show" and hosts regional events across Canada and the US.
I went to one a couple of years ago and am SO excited that there's another one nearby. I'm all registered and ready to go! I'm working on my swaps for the event. So far, I have one organized swap done (where a group of ladies decide to swap amongst themselves) and I've done one card for some general swapping. Swapping enables demonstrators to get new ideas and samples for our customers to see at classes. I still have one more organized swap to complete and then if I have time, I'll do some more cards for general swapping. I can't wait!!!
Here's just one of my general swap cards:
I found the idea in the catalogue and decided to CASE it (CASE stands for Copy And Share Everything). I didn't have the stamp set used in the catalogues sample, so I made it my own by using the Occasions Alphabet set. Do you know that there are HUNDREDS of ideas in the catalogue? If you don't have one, please email me and I'll get one out to you! (Canadian residents only, please)
Here's a close up of the stamped image:
I added Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it up a little bit...and don't you just LOVE those pearls? SO CUTE!!!
