Convention Swaps

Last week I attended the annual Stampin' Up! Convention in Melbourne. I had an absolute ball and even though I have been a demonstrator for four years now I still find so much new to learn each year. It's a great opportunity to catch up with friends that I only see once a year or so plus 'swap' our creations and buy special company merchandise. We received some awesome stamp sets (sorry cant reveal until next month), made some cute projects with them and got some sneak peeks as to what is on its way later in the year - you will LOVE it all! I prepared two swaps this year. I made some special swaps for the ESAD dinner I went to and made another 50 or so of another style using the cupcake punch and stamp set from the Autum/Winter Mini Catalogue. My ESAD swaps had a baby theme cos I am kinda baby crazy at the moment. I made a collection of Baby Card Candy in four subltes colours - Bashful Blue, Pink Pirouette, So Saffron and Certainly Celery. Please dont ask me how long it took to make them - I lost count of the hours and hours way before I finished. I hope the recipients will use them to make cute cards though - all the pieces are stuck to a sheet of acetate so they can be pulled off easily. I got the idea from this project. My card swap was inspired by this one but since I am blue crazy at the moment I made them all in Baja Breeze. I will post some more pics tomorrow of all the swaps I received back plus some of the goodies I bought.
