What I've been doing....

These are the swaps I was able to get done for convention. You can see there is a lot of paper and stamped images on that table. Not as many as I would have liked to make, but I'm lucky I got these all done. These are the only swaps I was able to put together that are just for swapping with anyone at anytime. I made 30 of them. They use the new Aviary stamp set and I just love those colors together.
Isn't that Aviary stamp set great? I think it is going to be one of my favorites.
Then I put together what was left of these from my Open House. These are for a swap with the 17 ladies from my upline that are going to be at convention. We are meeting for dinner at Olive Garden on Friday night, which also happens to be my birthday, so it will be a really fun night I'm sure. I will have to rememeber to take pictures to post when I get home.
Then I made 50 of these cute little baby cards. I didn't realize all the little details that I put into this card until I started mass producing 50 of them. These are for an organized swap with 50 people that signed up for a pajama swap. So, I'm off to buy some cute jammies today. We will be swapping these in the hotel lobby at 9:30p.m. in our jammies. It should be fun or interesting.
I used the new Baby Bundle stamp set and paper pieced the little baby buggy, added a brad, ran the Early Espresso piece through the Lattice empression folder after punching the edge with scallop trim border punch. Like I said, a lot of steps, but I think it turned out pretty cute.
These are also for an organized swap of 25 people. These are people that signed up through the UStamp with Dawn and Friends group I followed. We will be swapping these early on at convention. We are doing this swap on Wednesday at 4:30p.m.
I used the new In Colors for this card. The more I use those colors the more excited I get that the In Colors will be around for 2 years now, not just one.
These are the little triangle boxes I showed earlier. These are also for an organized swap of 3D items. These will be swapped the same time the ones just above are being swapped. It is with the same group of people.
These had to be bagged and tagged. I included the directions, since they are so easy to make, and I love that no adhesive is necessary.
So, you can see I have been a very busy girl. I leave early in the morning and will be back on Sunday. I'm very excited. This is my first Stampin Up Convention experience, and hopefully not my last. I will post all the fun when I get home and recuperated.
Have a wonderful week everyone.
