Well, I hope you all had a fantastic weekend, ’cause I surely did! I was in stamper’s heaven … at Stampin’ Up!’s Sydney Regional training.
Now, I won’t confess the dire hour I stayed up until making my 32 swaps. And if you’re not sure what a swap is, post a comment so you can learn about the fun. But … these were the swaps I made:
And these were the swaps I received in return:
For my swap, I used the stamp sets Boho Backgrounds and Think Happy Thoughts. The colours are Bashful Blue, Sahara Sand and Riding Hood Red. I used LOTS of punches on the card for all the circles. Plus, I used the masking technique for the flowers down the side. Naturally, there has to be a little bit of bling SOMEWHERE on my cards, and this card had two rhinestone brads.
Now, these were three of the four gorgeous make-and-take projects we all made:
We made these with the stamp set Hello Again and the wheel Retro Remix, both new and upcoming in the Summer Mini Catalogue (beginning 1 December – yeah!). As part of the cost of the day, each attendee received a brand new Hello Again and Retro Remix … and a new handle and a new Old Olive ink cartridge for our handle. I was pretty stoked! Stampin’ Up! is so generous, honest! And did you see the beautiful ribbons we used on our projects? They are stunning IRL!
Thanks for looking 🙂
