Convention Make & Takes

One of the fun things at Convention is to make samples with your new stamp sets. We even got a stamp set from the upcoming Holiday mini that isn't even available for purchase yet - yeah! The make & takes and display boards give us a head start on ideas.

But, I have to be honest. There is two hours to make these make & takes, and for some reason it always seems like a race. Are we all just too competitive? We had plenty of time. Some people like to just take their supplies with them to make them later (... but will they?). I don't want any UFOs, as my mom calls them, UnFinished Projects. Wait, that would be UFP. I'm going to have to clarify that. UnFinished Object? Anyway... I tried to make these as slow and relaxing as possible, while still keeping up with my roommates, since we were sharing stamps.

Stamp set Paisley Prints and Paisley Party wheel:

Look at how cute that is with the little self-adhesive pearl!

Stamp set So Many Thanks:

This is a little folder that holds 3 x 3" notecards and envelopes, a perfect hostess or teacher gift!

Stamp set Just Believe:

This last one is a little folder that holds 1.5 x 1.5" bitty notecards in a cello bag inside - very cute!

Thanks for stopping by!

I am so jealous that you went to convention. I am really hoping to make it next year. It is one of my main goals. It looks like you had a ton of fun. Lucky lady.
