Two workshop projects

Yesterday was the last meeting of my very first Rotating Hostess Club. I had an awesome time with this group of ladies. I feel like we've become close and I enjoy spending time with them. It makes this "job" fun! Here are the two projects that were done:
PROJECT 1: 6x6 scrapook page

Stamp set: Just B
Paper: Rose Red DSP, Regal Rose, Whisper White (WW)
Ink: Rose Red & Regal Rose
Accessories: Ice Brads, flower from Flower Fusion tin

Here I wanted to show how to take that 6x6 page and transfer it onto a 12x12 layout. All I did was add more Rose Red DSP and added two layers of paper - the Regal Rose & Whisper White. It's really not as intimidating as it looks!

Using the same stamp set, I did a boy page using Blue Bayou DSP & Soft Sky paper.


Stamp sets: Year after Year, For a Friend (hostess), Little Pieces
Paper: Confetti White, Tempting Turquoise, More Mustard, Real Red, East Coast Prep DSP
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Various markers for coloring, Wild Wasabi double stitched ribbon, 1/2" circle punch

This is another look using the same stamp sets:

Scrapbook Class

The first layout the ladies did at my class was pretty simple. The only stamping was for the title. I enjoyed using the designer series paper and star punches. The stars were a huge hit! Again, I LOVE this website and her ideas. My inspiration can be found HERE.

For the photos I wanted to use, I had to change the layout from the class. Here is my final product (before journaling).
This second layout was inspired by THIS template. I may CASE her whole layout using the Jersey Shore DSP to go along with the rest of my son's birthday photos. We used the Embrace Life stamp set and Ginger Blossoms DSP. The title is "I love being your MOM." The single flower was cut out and SU! glitter was added. It's hard to tell in this photo.

Swaps for Convention

Okay, ladies, I'm a newbie when it comes to swapping. I only participated once before at another demonstrators scrapbook retreat, but I am sure that the swapping at Convention is MUCH more intense. Here's what I need from you:
1 - Can we start making swaps now even before the retired list is out?

2 - What kind of swaps go on at Convention?

3 - Your guess as to how many I should prepare. I know this is up to me, so what is your average?

4 - Any other advice here!

Drop me an email if that would be easier ( Any information would be SO helpful to me!

I am going to convention!

I took the plunge, the Stampin' Up! Convention plunge! I am so excited that I decided to attend this year's celebration in Salt Lake City. The hubby is watching the kids for 5 days, 4 nights as I venture out to Utah to get motivated, inspired, and have some fun! This is the first time I've ever been to convention and I really do think this is what I need to do for my business. I haven't had that "official" training and it's time after three years! Here I come, SLC!
