Convention WOW Swap 3

Here is another WOW swap I received at Convention. I must say that I received so many wonderful ideas and I hope to share most of them with you either through my Blog or in my classes and clubs. Isn't this card just adorable and it's made mostly using punches. It has such a modern look. It's hard to tell but the back ground is done by using the Lattice Bigz Die (#115958) to create your own background template.

Marker Club

Would you like to purchase all of the Stampin' Write Markers? Want to break it up over 4 months? If this interests you then join my Marker Club.

Convention WOW Swap 2

Today I would like to share another WOW swap I received at Convention. This card uses the technique of paper roses. It also used the Little Leaves Die (#114511) and the Top Note Bigz Die (#113463).

Scrapbook Club

Do you like to scrapbook? Want to learn new techniques and get ideas for different layouts? I'm starting a Scrapbook Club which would meet once a month and we would make a two page layout each month. At the end of the year you will have an entire scrapbook completed. If your interested contact me and I will add you to my list and email the details soon!

Convention WOW Swap 1

Today I am sharing one of the cards I received in my WOW card swap. Swapping is one of my most favorite aspects of convention because I get to see the ideas that others come up with. I just love the colors used on this swap; Pretty in Pink and Soft Suede. I absolutely love the vintage look and with all the new vintage products in the catalog this will be so easy to achieve. The Newsprint Designer Series Paper (#117166) is used as well as the spritzer tool (#107066). And don't you just love the Antique Brads (#117273)! The stamp sets used are Teeny Tiny Wishes (#115370), En Francais background stamp (#109521), and Flower Fancy (#111578).

My Stampin Studio in Salt Lake City

Each year when I travel to Convention in Salt Lake City I stay at the Hilton Hotel. The Hilton is across the street from the Salt Palace which is where Convention is held and I because I stay there each year the hotel is very familiar. Since I usually travel alone it is important that I stay somewhere close  and am comfortable on my own. The Hilton has very comfortable rooms and the room service is wonderful!

Here is a photo of the hotel from the Salt Palace....
This year I upgraded my room so that I would have more room and so I could be in the front of the building. It was wonderful because I was on the 16th floor and could see the whole city from my room. And, because I had more room I was able to set up a stamping area so that in the evenings I could go back to my room a 
let out some of the creative energy I acquired during the day at convention.

So, here are some cards that I made for those who helped me make my swaps for convention. These are 4x4 thank you cards. The first one is made using the Just Believe (#120453) stamp set which I received for attending convention. the colors are Baja Breeze and Early Espresso.

The next card is made using only colors from the new Neutrals color family. Who knew you could make such a beautiful card using only Crumb Cake and black cardstock. The stamp set used is the Ala Carte So Many Thanks (#120173) which is another stamp I received for attending convention. I also used the Itty Bitty Punches and the new 1/8 Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon.

The last card is made using the Artistic Etchings (#120573) and Occasional Quotes (Hostess Level 3). The colors are Very Vanilla, Black, and my new favorite Cherry Cobbler.

These three cards fit in a standard envelope. It's always fun to make cards in different sizes than those that we are so used to!
