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:
The second card is also a previous workshop project:

Phewf! It’s been a little while since I have been able to post an update for you all! A lot has changed for me, and I am now back in British Columbia in New Westminster. Now that my craft room is all unpacked I am finally able to hold card making workshops again. (YAY!)
The first class I did was a huge success so I hope that some of you will be able to join me for my second workshop in New Westminster. The theme for this card making workshop is “Birthday Bash”. Birthdays happen all throughout the year – so be prepared for them! This workshop will feature 3 cards: one feminine, one masculine and one junior (child / tween) card.
All the materials you need will be provided to make each card, all you will need to bring with you is basic supplies like Tombow or snail, pop dots / dimensionals and fine pointed scissors along with any other tools you find useful when crafting! I provide the project kits, complete with all materials and pre-cut card stock; all you need to do is learn the fun techniques and assemble the projects!
Here is the masculine birthday card design we will be making in this workshop:
