A Happy Heart at Convention

That's me. As an adult, I've been very active person- politics, social groups, activism groups, my work, graduate school, muzzleloading. As I find a hobby or interest, I delve into it whole heartedly. Sometimes, I find a group of people I can relate to and a place to have fun. As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I have found a niche in the world that fits me. My husband jokes that I belong to a cult or a sorority, but, amazingly, I love it. I love every minute of convention--the four hours in line at the Momento Mall to buy Stampin' Up! merchandise, the hours of preparing swaps to share with others, carrying a heavy bag around all day, meeting other demonstrators from all around the United States. All of it. It's a place I fit.

I made a bunch of the Christmas cards to swap, but wanted another side to I made 50 of these:

Stamps: A Happy Heart
Paper: Always Artichoke, Perfect Plum, Soft Suede, Autumn Traditions Designer Series Paper, Very Vanilla
Ink: Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: Soft Suede Polka Dot Ribbon, Always Artichoke 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Big Shot, Stampin' Up! Perfect Details Texturz Plates, Plastic pad, Silicone Pad, Piercing tool, Matte, and Template, Vintage Brads

There is never enough time, but I managed to cut the layers and stamp before leaving for convention. I ended up putting half of them together here in Salt Lake City. I ran out of the Autumn Traditions Designer Series paper. Since the remainders were over 1200 miles away in Neenah, I reworked my card to use the supplies I had:

There you go. Two designs from one set of supplies!

Happy Stamping!


  1. Sara, what a great swap card and your re-do when you ran out of DSP is awesome too. It sounds like you are having an awesome time at Convention - I wish I were there!!

  2. You couldn't have said it any better Amy. I agree with you 100%. Oh, my husband thinks I belong to a cult too!


Thanks for commenting! I love feedback!
