Inspire Create Share: Stampin Up Convention 2014 Card Swap

I am so excited, and a little overwhelmed to have the opportunity to attend Stampin Up’s 2014 convention: Inspire. Create Share!

As part of a new recruit incentive, I was able to attend convention for FREE!! The attendance was waived for new recruits so I only need cover my expenses.

One of the big parts of convention is the swapping. There are many organized swaps, in addition to the ‘general swaps’. Essentially guests of the convention go around networking with other demonstrators, and instead of exchanging business cards, we will exchange GREETING cards! How cool is that?! The purpose is to get ideas for workshops and share your ideas with others. Initially I didn’t plan on making general swap cards as I was on a very limited budget – but the more I thought about it I changed my mind. This is my first convention, and in the chance that I do not have the opportunity again to go back I wanted to make sure I make the most of this experience.

 

Here are my cards that I made for the organized swap:

Here are the two cards that I made for the general swaps – these are both past projects that I made in workshops:

Stampin’ Up Boys Will Be Boys Robot Card

I am SO EXCITED to be able to attend my very first ever Stampin Up convention this year in Salt Lake City Utah July 16 – 18 2014.  The theme for this year’s convention:  Inspire. Create.  Share!

 

There are organized swaps that we can sign up for which happen throughout convention, along with general swaps.  I didn’t know the procedure for the organized swaps and most were full by the time I figured it out, but I found one and signed up for it.  The criteria for the swap is:

  • card front only
  • at least 2 layers
  • at least one embellishment

I decided to create a card that can be used for many occasions, and was masculine. I find creating masculine cards are always the hardest designs to come up with

 

Here is the card I made:

Stamp Right Up Boys will be Boys Stampin Up robot masculine card

Now that I have had some time to think about it more, I am going to make revisions – I will post the new version of the card once I have it created 🙂
