One of the most fun parts of the Stampin' Up! Convention and even other Stampin' Up! events is swapping with other attendees. Swapping means a Stampin' Up! demonstrator makes a bunch of the same card front to trade with other demonstrators. Usually we make more than one design. Really almost from the time you arrive at the airport swapping among demonstrators begins…but for sure once you arrive at the Convention hall! You will see demonstrators in the lobby and everywhere with their hands full of swaps to trade and this continues for days. Besides being fun and a good way to get acquainted with others, it gives us samples to show our customers for ideas on what they can make with their stamping supplies. Some demonstrators sign up for special organized swaps with a certain group or with a certain theme….it might be 3×3 cards, or scrapbook pages, or 3D items, or gifts or pop-up cards or whatever! You might see them meeting in a circle in the lobby and trading their swaps in an organized fashion. Whatever the method, it is REALLY fun, and so fun to come home with lots of samples to show!
