Convention Loot and Swap

 So yesterday I finally made it into my craft room and began the task of putting away everything I had received at convention. Before I did that though, I took a picture of it. I really hadn't realized just how much we got. So just like this post from last year, I wanted to about what the value was of all these goodies. I was shocked to add it all up and see that I had received about $406.00 worth of product for FREE!!! And then I realized I hadn't even factored in all the card stock they gave is for the projects, holy cow! Now you can see why I love working for this company! Here's a quick picture so you can see all the loot. 

I also wanted to share my HSS swap with you for convention. I literally had just received my Scentsational Season stamp set, Holiday Collection framelits and Sugar and Spice embossing powder and couldn't wait to use them.
This little guy smells so yummy! All of these items will be available to order August 1 in the new Holiday Catalog. And for the first time Stampin' Up! is offering select products in bundles to save you money.

I really loved the non-traditional colors of Pool Party, Pink Pirouette and Sahara Sand. And as you can see the layout can be easily altered for just about anything. Here I just changed the ribbon and embossing folder and stamped the duck image from the Easy Events stamp set.
