My Stampin' Up! Convention Swaps

I am getting SOOOOO excited about going to Convention!!  Friends, Stamping, Ideas, Swaps, Food, Fun... whohooo!  This will be my 12th Convention - can you believe I have to leave on my hubby's 50th birthday? YIKES!  We had a big 49er party last year (HERE), so he said it was ok to go to convention and not do a big thing for his 50th this year.

Anyway... here are the 3 swap cards I'm taking with me to Convention next week.. they all use Bella Rose Designer Paper and new colors: Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, and of course good old Chocolate Chip!

Swap 1

Swap 2

Above: this card uses the Fresh Cut Notecard turned into a "pocket" - open at the top. That is one of the new Riding Hood Red buttons in the center of the big flower...  it has a funny glare on it from the flash.. sorry!

Enjoy your weekend!

Hi Patty,

Those all look amazing! I'm really LOVING the sunflower one. I love all the new in colours. Can't wait to see what other DSPs will be in the new catty. What are you taking to carry your swaps on? Only 3 more days until Convention. WOOHOO! ;-)

Those are all GORGEUOS!!! How many total did you make? Hope to run across you!


Your swaps are so pretty!! How many of each did you make though - your sneak peeks showed a HUGE pile of pieces :) I'll be attending convention as a guest, hopefully I'll run into you and get to say hi in person!


Aww, Patty -- sorry you have to leave on hubby's birthday. I'm leaving on our wedding anniversary! (I guess that's what we get for getting married while at Convention in Las Vegas -- 7 years ago!)

Safe travels to you. If all goes according to plan, I'll have something special for you from the block guy. :)


Oh how pretty! I wish I was going! Have an awesome time!


Love your swap cards! The sunflower is number one for me :)
