There were so many high points at the convention, and swapping projects with other demonstrators was definitely one of them. I made this booklet for an organized swap of business tool ideas.
The cover design is inspired by a card done by Mary Jo Albright who won this year's Stampin' Up! Artisan award.
The inside looks like this and gives you a place put 1/2" square samples of all the cardstock from the color families and to inventory your ink supplies.
Here's the recipe to make this booklet.
Stamp sets: Stamp of Authenticity, Define Your Life, Sanded, Defining Alphabet, and Form & Function

Here's the file to for the inside pages. I'm afraid the pdf conversion is kind of sketchy, but hopefully it will give you a starting point.
One of the most fun projects I got back from my fellow swap mates was from Dale Abraham. She showed us the gifts she gives her crop participants.
Inside the bag she had some sponges for distressing projects, candy (essential for crops) and a fun clapper gizmo with a poem that said:
Stampin' & Scrapin'
is so much fun . . .
Do some Dancin' & Clappin'
when your project is done!
She also had this fun little wish-list tablet inside.
Dale wrote me that she used these clappers at a weekend crop one year and "the gals loved it . . . all day you'd here "clap clap clap clap" as a person finished a layout. The funny thing was, the following year at the same event, many of the people from the previous year still had them and used them." Can't you just imagine what a blast Dale's workshops are?
