Here are 2 more swaps that I rec'd at Convention made with one of my favorite sets - For All You Do. This card is actually perforated down the middle so that the right side can be taken off and used as a bookmark. What a cool idea!

This is the card that we made for club this month. It uses the Medallion background stamp which is the #1 selling stamp that Stampin' Up! sells. I wanted to show my group how to use the spritzing tool. I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I like the simplicity of the Medallion stamp.
I decided to do a scrapbook page for my club this month as well. I have never done that so I feel that it is a little basic, but I like pages to focus on the pictures and not a crazy amount of stuff on them. It is hard to see in the picture but I sponged using Soft Suede on the edges of all the paper. It is a different color combo to use - Not Quite Navy and Dusty Durango but I actually like it. This picture really doesn't make this page look very nice but it is alot better in person.

I have seen these charms for a while now and everytime I have a club night or an open house I'm never really sure where my scissors will end up. I thought I would try to make them and I am really happy with how they turned out. I will be trying some more. Once I do I will post for you to see.

Here are some more swaps from Convention. I am just trying to pick a few that I really like the colors or layout of.
This beer mug card is so cute. It is really hard to see in the picture but she used Crystal Effects on the beer mugs to look like a real glass with beer in it. Finally a really great guy card!
This turtle is from the Ronald McDonald set and I really love it. This card also uses the Woodgrain background stamp. I never really even thought that it would be something that I would like but it adds a nice touch to this card.

Well I am back from my first ever Stampin' Up! Convention and it was amazing. I'm not even sure where to start to tell you everything. We have already decided that we are going again next year. Lets start with swaps. These are the cards that I used for swaps as well as the Love Bug one from a previous post. I took 100 swaps and got some really great stuff in return. I am just getting myself caught up on things now that I am back and will post lots in the next few days so stay tuned.
