So, Convention was great, got to see lots of friends from all over the country I have met over the years being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, that is one of my favorite perks of being in the Stampin' Up! family. Meeting other people who love the same thing....Stamping and make a difference.
Getting ready for vacation with my husband to Iowa, taking the computer along, you just might see a post or 2!!!!
Paper Pumpkin, what is it and why you should get it?
It is a kit in the mail, comes in a bright orange box each month, mailed out on the 11th and takes up to 5 or 6 days to get to you.....SO each month you get a box full of crafting fun. It comes with everything you need except your favorite adhesive. It comes with stamps! ink! and paper! and any special adhesives, glue dots, dimensionals....card stock, speciality papers, envelopes (if there are cards in the kit)...sometimes the kit is card making and other times it is a project or a pack of projects. Always a surprise to see what's inside that box. At convention, we were able to get a sneak peek!!! Well, I tell you I cannot wait to get August and September's kits. August is mostly cards - adorable!!!! and September is projects, maybe for the fall, for a party or you could make them into cards, the possibilities are endless.
It's on sale for first timers.....Go to this link to sign up and get half off the first 2 months!
Join the fun now to get August Paper Pumpkin....But you have until Sept 10 to get the special of half off the first 2 months. Some perks to being a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber.....Stampin' Up! offers past kit projects...sometimes just the project, sometimes the whole kit - ON SALE, but only Paper Pumpkin Subscribers get a chance to purchase those.

I made 80 3x3 card swaps and about 80 regular size card swaps for convention I will share a few every couple of days.
Here is one of my favorites, I love using the 3x3 size card, I leave my servers tip in one when I get good service, I have given them to sales clerks in stores, and other places of business....I wanted to use the Ronald McDonald House stamp set and make a Thank you. I swapped with 80 people this size card.....My husband helped with cutting and punching....I could not have made them without his help.
This next one is from a swap with 50 people, these cards were WOW cards with layers and embellishments. My hubby cut out all the dragonflies by Hand!!!!! All 50 of them!
