Another Fabulous Stampin' Up! Convention

I just returned from 5 awesome days in Salt Lake City, Utah for the annual Stampin' Up! Convention. WOW it was amazing! I listened to great presenters on the main stage, attended a variety of inspiring workshops, swapped cards with other demonstrators - both general swaps and organized swaps, and met many wonderful people. I even tweeted, facebooked, and pinned on Pinterest during convention about convention. I have learned that 700 swaps is about 200 too many for me, but I had fun. I swapped for Christmas cards, 3-D cards, 3-D projects, 3x3 note cards, technique cards, and 3 different recipe swaps. I now know which swaps I'd like to do again. Over the next week, I'll reveal my swaps and provide supply lists on how to make them if you'd like to.

Next year is the 25th Anniversary of Stampin' Up! and the Annual Convention promises to be amazing! The dates are July 18-20, 2013.  Join my team and we can go together and have a blast!!!
