Just wanted to share with you the swaps I am taking to the Stampin‘ Up Convention next week! I love making swaps and getting new ideas from my sister demonstrators! It’s definitely one of the highlights of Convention.

This idea came to me in the middle of the night. It’s a simple little card designed to look like a shopping bag – tissue paper and all! I like to create new “gift cards” each year and this design is just perfect! I used Early Espresso, Pink Pirouette, and Rich Razzleberry (a combo I pulled off my new Color Coach). The stamp set is Things I Love, which many of you chose for your Sale-a-Bration set this past winter. I textured the cardstock using the Square Lattice Impressions Folder (a new fav of mine!)

Quick and Easy! That’s what I’m all about! This card is SO fast and simple to create! I used the new 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle punch for the flower (cut in between each petal to make it a flower), ticket corner punch, and the Perfect Polka Dot Impressions Folder on the Regal Rose cardstock. The sentiment is from Messages for Mom.

Ever need a little gift bag in a hurry? This great little project is so cool to make! Lick and seal an envelope. Cut the side down 1 1/4″ but save this piece. Stamp on the envelope as desired and run through the crimper with the opening to the right or left. This will “shrink” the envelope just a bit so that you can take the remaining piece of the envelope and use as a topper. Decorate as desired! How easy is that?

Christmas is right around the corner and most stampers want to have a head start on the season. Why not create some fabulous tags using the new stamp set Gifted?! It’s so fun and easy to work with this set!! Cut off the top of a clear envelope to create a cello bag and top it with a Top Note die! Done!

I hope to swap with some of my followers at Convention!!!
