Convention Goodies

It's hard to believe that just two weeks ago I was at Convention, but time just keeps on rolling. We've been lucky with the sun shining and a bit cooler temperatures leading into the BC Days long weekend.  While I've been really busy and still recuperating from my chest cold, I thought I would show you the last of my swap items and some of the freebies we received for attending Convention.
First of all check out this bunch of awesome new stamp sets.  I brought back six new ones and I love them all!  Oh yeah and see those rolls of Washi Tape?  You guessed it, they were freebies too!  I'm planning on making some great gift items for Halloween and Christmas with those! 
 
Here's my big prize that I received on my second day from Prize Patrol.  Drum Roll please............. Its the brand new Label Thinlit Dies.  Whoo Hoo!!  I was just so excited and couldn't wait to get home and try them out.  Fabulous!

 

We got a free Paper Pumpkin box with all its wonderful goodies at the Paper Pumpkin Demo station!  How cool was that?   If you havent' seen all the goodies you get in Paper Pumpkin come over and visit me, as I've got the Welcome Kit (everyone gets that one for their first month) and then I have May, June and July kits!   If you want to introduce someone to stamping this is the way to go.  Fast, fun and easy! Check out my Paper Pumpkin button for this month's promo.  You'll be glad you did. 


 Lots of goodies in this kit, including, designer paper, ink spot, stamps, labels and tags, binder rings, album cover and back, buttons and more.

We also received this awesome Tag A Bag Gift Bags set for free.  It's featured on pages 158-159 of the catalogue.  It's pretty cool what you can do with these bags, for example we even learned a way to transform the bags from flat to shaped to hold more goodies. 
This bundle includes both the the Gift Bags and Tag a Bag Accessory Kit.  Save 15% by getting it as a bundle.
Undefined is the brand new stamp set that Stampin' Up! released the beginning of this month.  Undefined is meant for the inner artists in everyone.  If you want to have fun and design your own rubber stamp, you can do it with this set. It comes with 4 stamps and blocks and carving tools.  

Unfortunately we ran out of time at Convention so I can't show you my block yet, but I'm going to give it a whirl at home and see what I come up with.  Should be fun!

Another freebie we got is the Simply Created Real Red Goody Gear.  In this awesome kit you get 10 die cut Kraft tags, 10 White Die cut banners, 10 die cut stickers, 10 pieces of Bermuda Bay Baker's Twine, 10 cellophane bags 3 x 5 size.  All these products will allow you to take your goodie giving to a whole new level. With this Simply Created kit you'll never give away a naked goody bag again! Stampin' Up very generously included the Oh Goodie stamp set in our packages!  Love them!

 MAKE N' TAKES

Tag a Bag Gift Bag - this is the technique I told you about.  So easy and what a change up!



Grunge and Hello Lovely stamp sets were used to create the gorgeous backdrop for this card and matching envelope.  Who knew you could achieve such great results with splatters and skids!  

 

Note cards and matching gift bag set - loved, loved, loved it!  You Make Me Happy Set,

Goodies:

Lousy picture, but these are the fabulous silver and white back packs we received full of goodies!  They are awesome!
Okay Now For Some Last Minute Trades and Goodies I received:

Goodie Bag gift from Diane Ison of Richmond BC.  Isn't it just the greatest!

Gorgeous Gift Tag from Anna Marie of Los Angeles California.  This is just the cutest tag and so well designed! 
Woot! Woot!  Card Candy from Laura H. Zaraza of Lake Geneva, WI.  Laura had us dancing in the aisles when we met her in the lunch room on Saturday.  She traded her card candy for our cards and we were thrilled.  In fact we're going to have a card candy get together and will probably toast to Laura's good health...........that's how thrilled we were to get her art work!  Thanks Laura, appreciated!

Gorgeous little purse made with the Purse Die from Serena Marsh, Burnaby BC
Cute little treat included in our gorgeous swap bags for the New Card Catalogue Swap.

We received a gorgeous paper shopping bag for our swapping in the New Card Catalogue Swap and it was beautifully decorated by Lori and gals with this Statement of the Heart!  Loved it!

Lovely fun little earrings that are made from the new Simply Pressed Clay.  Swapped these for a card with the wonderful Jennifer Buchanan of Bremerton Washington.  Thanks Jen these were awesome!

Here we are living it up on Saturday night at the Convention with some of the Stampin' Up male staff!  Thanks Debby Evoy for making us hit the boogy boards!
