But I can't show them to you yet!!!! It's killing me!!! I'm working on a bunch of great swaps for the big convention in July!!! I'm doing 4 organized swaps-a card swap, a 3x3 mini card swap, a 6x6 calendar scrapbook page swap, & a recipe swap! I will have soooo much to show you when I get back from convention!!!! But I can't show my swaps until I leave! So watch for them on July 18th!

What's a swap you ask? Well, it's when a group of stampers-in this case, Stampin' Up! demonstrators-get together & "trade" items. It's to help with ideas & designs. You get a set of guidelines to follow. There are different kinds-cards, tags, scrapbook pates, 3D items, etc. They can be just about anything! The cards are typically card fronts only! 

The whole purpose is give each other ideas for designs, etc.  If one of my customers wants a particular stamp set demo'd, and I don't have that stamp set, I can share some of the swap ideas to help my customers get new ideas! The nice thing about convention is the swaps are demonstrator quality-usually pretty nice!!! So we give & get some fantastic ideas!

I have tons from last year's convention! If you'd like to see them, just let me know! You probably have some of the stamp sets!!!

Recently, my upline Angela organized a mini 6x6 scrapbook page swap! There were only 4 of us, but we got some cute pages!!! They needed to be "brights, with at least 1 embellishment! Here they are!!! First, warning, not all the products are Stampin' Up!!! (mine is though!!!) This was not a demonstrator swap-just a fun swap among friends! You can do one too!

It was so much fun to get the swaps!!! They're all pretty nice, huh? Can you guess which is mine?

Contact me if you'd like to organize a swap or get a swap going! I can help! It's a lot of fun & you really get some great ideas!!!

Happy Stampin'!
