Couple more posts on Convention

This card is so beautiful. I took a picture of it while I was having lunch one afternoon. One of the best things about swapping is all the ideas you receive. As a good stamper, I love to CASE cards. (Case stands for COPY ANYTHING STAMP EVERYTHING!) This is a great case card. The colors are my favorite and the card is very simple to make.

This is a swap that my roommate Jessi created. It's this beautiful. She is a wonderful artist. I love the colors. Her cards are very sweet and clean.

I encourage all of you to buy handmade card. They are made with love, sweat, and inspiration. Think about putting that out into the world where people are receiving love.

Reminder that there are two more days for becoming a demonstrator and receiving your kit for $99.

Have a good evening.

Still Dreaming of convention

by ktstamps, 8:44 PM
Here I am in the Memento mall enjoying being away from the rain we are having this summer. Salt Lake was fabulous due to the fact it was warm! I am hoping that the sun is coming out for more than 2 days in a row!
This is one of the decoration they had in the hallways encouraging us to grow our business. I also thought it was important to take a good look within and do some spiritual growing.

This is one of the nicest cards I saw at convention. I LOVE, I MEAN I LOVE this sunflower stamp. The artist did an awesome job!

Here are a couple of bulletin board with cards and scrapbook pages on them. It is so amazing taking pictures of all these bulletin board filled with cards. You have so much respect for all the creators. It is really incredible to be around so much creative energy...I realize, this is what I want to do. Creating cards gives me a sense of peace within, a desire to create wonderful cards, and to encourage others to buy handmade cards!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

I told myself that I would only attend convention if I was chosen to be a make and take helper. Well....
I was going through my email in May and I was just deleting over 1000 of them with out reading them. (During school my emails can be toooo many and I just can't read them all!) I don't know why I stopped to read this one was from SU telling me I was picked to be a make and take helper. I was so excited and started to safe all my money to go to Salt Lake City! I had a blast. It really was a dream of a life time. I got to walk across the stage for recruiting and it was one of the best things I have ever done. (I would like to that again!)
I went through 7 roommate. Most wanted to save money and go with 5-7 people in a room. I just couldn't do that. (Been there and didn't want to visit again! Only one bathroom!!!!) And I got this wonderful mom of three from Cedar City to room with me! She was just what I needed. We talked a lot, stayed up tooo long, and just really connected on a higher level. Thank you so much Jessi for being the perfect person to be my roommate! Here I am with Jessi right before the Opening session is to begin. The place was pact and we just had so much fun taking lots of pictures.
Before I leave you I will share one of my card I did for the Black and White Swap. I think it turned out great.

Thank you for stopping by!

My 3rd convention

I can’t believe I am in Salt Lake City for the SU convention. I have been working hard to get all my swaps finished! The next few days I will be showing you my swaps and other swaps I received from this wonderful event.

This is a great place to spend time with like minded woman and men. You just talk, dream, share, swap, and create. It is nothing but a love fest about rubber stamping, wonderful cards, networking, and dreaming of your next project. Sleep isn’t a big priority! Gotta love a big slumber party!

This is the main stage at's it beautiful. Shelli is on stage looking so cute...OMG, to wear an outfit like that and be a Grandmother!

Here are two swaps I made. They were easy and turned out quite nice.

I am having a roommate is from Utah. She is cute as a button. (waiting for my phone to send me the picture so I can share her with you.

We both walked across the stage, for the first time. Jessie because this is her first convention and me for my recruit. It was so much fun and OMG the light are soooo bright!

Thanks for stopping by!
