Celebrate You Always!

Yippee! Today, Bubba and I are nearing Salt Lake City and the Convention!

Remember, to check out the post just below this one for my CONVENTION SUPER SPECIALS!

Today's project is one of my swaps. You see, with thousands of demonstrators all in the same space, ideas fly. Besides all the great information from Stampin' Up! demonstrators are a pretty cool group of people and share ideas. How do we do that (besides talking) SWAPPING! I joined the madness by creating a card front, a 6x6 page, and a 3D item to swap in general. That is, with anyone and everyone. I also am a part of 2 other swaps that are organized. I have specific project and group to meet up with.

Enough explanation....Here is my card front:


I started my swaps early (that's the planner in me), and then ran into a problem....WHAT ACCESSORIES WOULD RETIRE? I solved this problem by using my favorite accessory of all---(drumroll) PUNCHES!

Stamps: Always, A Little Birthday Cheer
Ink: Old Olive Craft Ink, Bashful Blue, Old Olive Classic Ink
Paper: Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Whisper White
Accessories: ¾ inch Circle Punch, ½ inch Circle Punch, ¼ inch Circle Punch, 1 ¼ Square Punch, 1 3/8 Square Punch, Clear Embossing Powder, Powder Pal, Heat Gun

I stamped the loopy flower in Old Olive Craft Ink and embossed it in clear, which gives it some dimension and sparkle. I then, punched, punched, punched, and punched! Layers and simplicity work for me! However, after making 100 of them, I was a little tired of the design. After two weeks off from looking at it, I like it again. This is definitely a Sara Original!
