I have been home from convention for a week, and am just now getting totally unpacked and taking a few minutes to look at my loot and swaps. We got so much "stuff" that I was worried I wouldn't be able to get it all home without paying for another bag! Besides the free stuff, we were also given the chance to buy certain items from the new, up-coming Holiday Catalog (goes live August 28th!) so that made me super worried! But, all ended well, and everything made it home just fine.
As I sorted through the items, I took a few minutes to make the actual Make and Takes that we were given supplies for at Convention. I rarely make them there, since everything seems so rushed and there is so much to see, that I usually wait until I am home to stamp and assemble. This year was the same, so I made these at home, some of them I used a bit of "creative license" to arrange, but regardless, they are so fun!
These projects used the three FREE stamp sets we received in our Convention bag - Kinda Eclectic and Amazing Birthday from the Annual catalog (page 164 and page 48) and Seasonally Scattered from the new Holiday catalog. You might also spy a new item in the center picture...available in the Holiday Catalog - take out boxes! The last picture shows the fun Gift Card Enclosure which can be found on page 194 of the Annual Catalog.
Now I get to sort through and examine all the of awesome swaps I got...over 250! Fun times ahead!
