Convention Swaps

Convention Swaps

Okay, so I’m about 3 months too late on this one but I wanted to share with you today some of the swaps I made for the Stampin’ Up! Convention I attended in July.  You saw pictures of my disaster of a living room while I was making them but did I ever share with you the final product?  The one above is the 3×3 love note card I made for an organized swap.  I love 3×3 note cards.  It really doesn’t seem to matter what  you put on them or how you make them, they are always adorable!

I also signed up for another organized swap that made full-sized cards.  This was a super wow swap and I poured my heart and soul into making those 20 cards.  And guess what?  I don’t have a picture!  OOPS!!!  Let’s hope I remember it enough that I can make it again another time.  Silly Lindsay!

In addition to the organized swaps, I also made 100 general swap cards.  These cards I swapped with anyone and everyone I ran into at Convention.  Some ladies made hundreds and hundreds of cards but I wanted to keep my sanity so I decided to make 5 designs and 20 cards of each design.  This way I wouldn’t go too crazy making a million of the same card.  Here are some of my general swaps.  Apparently I got so excited that I forgot to take a picture of one of these ones too!  Am I getting old or something?  I hope you like them!  I tried to vary the styles and keep them fun, while still simple.
