VIDEO: See my Stampin Up Convention Swaps

tamis stampin up convention swaps

I’ve just returned from Stampin Up’s Annual Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah. I attended with some of my Stamp It Demonstrator Group, and met friends there, as well as made many new friends. What an amazing event! Aside from having fun and spending time with friends, one of my favorite parts of any Stampin Up event is the swapping.

What’s a Card Swap?

A card swap is when you make a bunch of the same card, say 20, then swap with other people and come home with 20 different ideas. I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the cool swaps I came home with, and give you a couple of sneak peeks of things to come….

    Hi Tami,
    I’m so excited you chose two of my swap convention cards to show on you video; the flower pot on the picket fence and the “crow” punch art card.
    You’ve made my day! I sat behind you in one of the sessions and was honored to give you a few of my swaps. I brought 500 cards for swapping this year because that is my favorite thing to do at convention also. I love giving some away to special people like you who help so many stampers with ideas!
    Thanks again, Betty

    • It was so great to meet you at convention!! Wow, I can’t believe you made 500 cards. Holy moly!!! Everyone loves your card, as you can see it’s a favorite among the cards I shared on the video. So at first I thought it was a turkey, but then after the video some gals pointed out it is a crow hahaha! Apparently I can’t tell a turkey from a crow, or a moose from an elk.

  10. Hi Tami
    I love your video on swaps I was at convention and got a chance to meet you- congrads on your awards – keep the great ideas coming

  11. Christine Miner says

    Anything Minion is the best! Can’t wait til next week. Love the flower pot one also.

  12. Yes, the punched turkey, please.
    I just love your enthusiasm!

  13. Vicki Perry says

    Love them All. Love Minions for sure…. Can’t wait!!!

    OMGosh Tami, they were all awesome and thank you so much for sharing them with us!!! I LOVE the punched turkey and the Christmas cards were all amazing; especially the balloon/bulb card.
    Look forward to your Minion post.

  15. Of course the minions are “in” now and would be fun! p.s. – it’s an elk not a moose. Moose have the wide antlers.

    • Of course … wide antlers … should’ve known…kiddding!!!!! Like I said I “should” know that. Now this poor elk is having an identity crisis.

  16. Tami,
    Loved the latest video from convention. You deserve every award and more. You are talented,thoughtful and extremely helpful. I am so happy that you are my Stmpin’ Up gal. Keep up the wonderful things that you do for all. Loved all of the swap cards. Can’t decide…..Thanks for sharing.

    • Oh Carolyn you have made my day. What a sweet thing to say. I’m proud to call you a friend. and I promise to keep up the inspiration. stay tuned.
