I am here in Salt Lake City anxiously waiting for the Stampin' Up 25th Anniversary convention to start. I have been to a stamp camp on Monday and Tuesday as well as a shoebox swap both of those days. I was able to make some amazing projects and will be ready for a year of great classes!
Tonight I'm going to post some of the projects from the shoebox swap yesterday. First is a fun candy bar holder. We just took a strip of Whisper White cardstock and put washi tape on it and punched a hole with the wide oval punch. Then we used a smaller strip of white to adhere to the card front and attached a mini candy bar on that and tucked it in the hole. A little tricky but easy and fun!
This one is a fun idea for children or grandchildren, whether you are taking them somewhere in your car or are taking them to church or a dr appt where they may need to wait quietly for a while, this cute kit will help. The little box will hold 6 colored pencils or 5 crayons. Just stamp a bunch of outline type stamps that kids will enjoy onto cardstock that has been cut out with the Top Not die, make a cover and adhere the crayon box onto it. This would keep either one of my granddaughters busy for quite a while.
I was going to post more pictures but my computer isn't cooperating. I reckon it knows the connection isn't what it is used to. I'll be taking lots more pictures tomorrow and should be able to post many of them this week. I know I'm going to be seeing a ton of great projects on display at the convention and get lots of wonderful swap cards. I only got 100 cards made so far, I might have a little time to make 10 or 20 more in the morning before I go to the convention. I might have trouble sleeping tonight but I doubt it. I'm tired from all the fun! I'm thinking I'll wake up about 5AM and not be able to fall back asleep though. Maybe I can make it till 6AM!
