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:

A Perfect Blend: coffee gift card holder & card in one!

This weekend I just recently got my “Perfect Blend” stamp set from Stampin Up. I saw it in the catalog but didn’t think I loved it… until it arrived.  I give a lot of coffee gift cards throughout the year to many people as thank you gifts and I wanted to come up with something that is non-seasonal. Here is what I came up with:
