Swap Sunday – Convention Haul

Piles of Stampin' Up! cards and gifts from the 2012 Annual Convention in Salt Lake City Utah

When you attend a Stampin’ Up! event, swapping will most likely be a part of your day(s). When you swap, you make a bunch of identical stamped items and you trade them with other demonstrators. They get your ideas and you get theirs. It’s not mandatory by any means, but it’s something most stampers do and it’s super fun!

Some people work on their swaps for months and bring hundreds to trade. I registered for Convention only a few weeks before the event, so I had very little time to swap. I made about 40 of the salt dough cookies I posted early this week (tutorial to come!) for general swapping (unorganized, spontaneous swapping anywhere, anytime – ladies’ rooms, hallways, airplanes, wherever two demonstrators meet!).

I also participated in two organized swaps which is where one person plans a swap, sets the rules of the swaps, and sets a specific meeting time and place to conduct the swap.

For my first organized swap, I made a project (a paint can with baby blocks inside) and typed up how-to instructions for the project. The organizer collected my instructions and those of the other swappers and burned them onto a CD. I received a CD with all 60 project instructions.

For my second organized swap, I created an object made solely out of punches. I made 50 of the same thing, and traded them with 50 other demonstrators, so now I have 50 new punch creations.

I’m going to be sharing these swaps (credit given to the creator, of course) in the coming weeks here on the blog in a new feature I’m calling “Swap Sunday”. So be sure to check back to see these fresh and fun ideas!
