We are going to have some fun for Stamp Shoppe this month. 3 different techniques for gift card holders. Who doesn't need a cute gift card holder! Templates coming soon!
Card #1  Happy Birthday to YOU! Cute and versatile works for all age groups! This card opens from the top, I like to use a paper clip to keep it closed. You can decorate it like the one in the 2nd photo, but I felt like was a little distracting on the front. Inside has a pocket to slide the gift card in.
What do you think?

Here is card number 2 - Wedding or Bridal Shower. Colors could also be for Baby Girl (I will have a baby stamp set out for those who would prefer this option). I love the shape of this card and how easy it is to put together.
Don't you love my choice of Gift Card? It was the only one I could find

Card #3  I know it is a little early to be thinking about Christmas, but I couldn't resist. I send out a lot of gift cards for the holidays and this is the perfect card holder! A fun new technique- POP UP!

Stampin' Up Convention 2013

Convention this year was so much fun! Stampin' Up definitely put on a party for their 25th year anniversary! They had so many things to see & do: booths, displays, make & takes, food, entertainment, new products to try, and more. There was so much we couldn't do everything. My camera wasn't taking good pictures :( so I had my friend take some for me. Will post when I get them. Here are pictures of the swag and projects I took home for this amazing weekend.

 Here are the FREE stamp sets, dies, washi tape, undefined, and paper pumpkin that was given out! Awesome!
 Here are the 12 x 12 scrapbook pages with card swaps that I participated in with the Queens of the Stamp Age group. Love them!

 Here are all the cute little gifts I received from my friends!

 Here are some of my favorite card swaps. Another fun thing about convention is all the swapping that happens. I always get some good ideas from participating in these.

These 2 pictures show some of the projects I made at convention and at the Queens party. Aren't they super cute. Look for these in my upcoming classes.
