Stampin’ Up Incentive Trip: Thailand Swap Inspiration

How did it get to be Friday already? Seriously, this week has been a whirlwind. I’m sorry I’m a day late with this post — I had all good intentions of getting these swap cards up yesterday, but Thursday was a marathon of meetings… I didn’t even get to eat lunch yesterday! I was so happy to get back home at 10PM and just plop on my couch! Anyway, as promised, here are some of my favorite swaps from the Thailand incentive trip. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo of my own swap so I can’t share that with you — but these are awesome so I’m sure you’ll find some great inspiration here! In no particular order… This beauty was made by Winona Semler, Canada I love this one — I’m going to need to make one of these, too! This one is by Barbara Lash, Massachusetts (Funny how I go to the other side of the world to swap cards with someone right in my own state, right?? 🙂 This lovely is by Debra Burgin, Illinois This card inspired this week’s Teach Me Tuesday video! I love this one by my friend Lorri Heiling, Arizona This set

Stampin’ Up Convention 2012 – Swap #2

Howdy, blog friends. Happy Monday — It always bothers me when I type that — I don’t know why I always say it!! Monday is by far my least favorite day. Anyway, I digress. I’m back today to share another one of my swap cards from Convention 2012. This one is pretty simple, but I like it — and it proved to be one of my more popular choices when I gave other demonstrators the option between this one and my other designs. Remember if you see anything on this card that you’d like to have for your own stash, feel free to visit my online store where you can shop 24 hours a day and have new goodies delivered right to your doorstep! I had wanted to get a photo of some of the ladies swapping cards when I was at convention, but my battery was dying the first day I arrived to convention and I couldn’t find my charger (in fact, I still can’t find it!) so I had to be very selected about what I took photos of and alas I forgot about the swapping photo. Actually, as I’m typing this, I think I had one from

Let’s play catch up….

Well, I have returned from Convention and I had so much fun I don’t even know where to begin for a recap! I had planned to show you a bunch of the displays, some main stage demos, some new friends, some great new project ideas, but unfortunately, I misplaced my camera on the way home so the only picture I have is this wee little one of general session on the first official morning. I think there were about 5,000 or so of us… so much fun! I actually won prize patrol, which means I got a new package of Designer Series Paper and a stamp set out of the upcoming Holiday Mini Catalog. I am in so much trouble with that mini…. soooo much fun stuff in there! Now as a demo, I actually get to pre-order some of that stuff TOMORROW! yipee 🙂 If you want to take a gander at it and earn 30% off your first order within 45 days… run (don’t walk) to my Web site — well, I guess you wouldn’t need to run or walk as you are probably already on the internet… lol) and sign up today for the $99 starter kit.
