Last week was an exciting time for me because I registered for the 25th Anniversary Stampin’ Up! convention in July, got travel all arranged for convention, and then got to participate in a Sneak Peek preview party for the NEW Annual catalog! It was almost too much excitement for me as I was soooo hyped up on adrenaline by the end of the night on Saturday!
But it got me thinking about swaps and I remembered I had a number of swaps that I hadn’t shared from Leadership convention a few months ago and so I thought I would pull out a few of them to share with you today.
These cards all use the By The Tide stamp set from the Spring Catalog. I’ll admit, this stamp set totally isn’t my thing, but obviously a lot of other people like it as my mom has a similar stamp set from a few catalogs ago and I got 3 cards while swapping using the set!
I thought these were great ideas and even if you don’t love the stamp set, you can use different papers and stamps and make other great cards!
