Sydney Regionals swap

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 🙂

  1. I was at there on Saturday too, but I didn’t get to swap with you 😦 I love your swap card, I didn’t see it on the swaps boards. Very subtle and classy!
