Team Occasion Swaps #1

On the way home from the last On Stage (Stampin' Up convention) some of my demo friends had a great idea.  We would divide up the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs and make samples from almost every page. It was sometimes a challenge to figure out exactly what was used on the card! We each ended up with 8 projects to make (6 of each).  That was a lot of stamping & assembling!  But it was so fun and challenging!  We each ended up with something we probably wouldn't have tried.  It's good to step out of our comfort zone sometimes.  We met up at a Starbucks to exchange everything.  Here's a picture of all of us:

 And here are some of the cards I received:

Patience made this one. It uses the Easter Message 
stamp set, the Very Vanilla satin ribbon and the Falling in Love
 Designer Series Paper. Love that paper! 

I think Elizabeth made this one. A great
masculine card using the Urban District
stamp set, Hexagons Dynamic Textured embossing folder
(which can also be used for chicken wire) and the Urban
Underground washi tape. I love how little bits are colored!

Kay made this card. Lots of details to it and it
is gorgeous! It's made with the Big on Birthdays stamp set.
Lots of big birthday images. Great for a quick card (not this example) - just 
add some Designer Series paper and a few embellishments

Patience made this card.  What a fun set this Cake Crazy is!
There are so many options for stacking up the different layers.  
It's going on my must have list!

 These are just a few of the ones I received. Which is your favorite? 

Stay tuned, I'll be sharing more in the next post! 

We've decided to do the same thing for the Annual Catalog.  But we won't be dividing up the whole catalog!  I'd have to rob a bank to fund that!

I just signed up for the On Stage event in Shreveport in April.  We'll get our hands on the brand new Annual Catalog then!   Would you like to join us and be among the first to see all the new, fun products?   This is a great time to get a Starter Kit.  You get the normal $125 worth of product for $99.  But during Sale-a-bration there's a bonus.  You get to pick 2 stamps absolutely free!  Any stamp set!
