One of the fun parts of a Stampin’ Up! event is the swapping – there is different kinds of swapping and it starts as soon as you are on your way to a Stampin’ Up! event.  At the airport you can usually spot another Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and it’s not uncommon to start swapping at the airport while waiting on the plane, in the plane – especially when you are seated near the bathroom then everyone stops by to talk to you and if the swaps are out then we start swapping.  At every event I come home with swaps and I have a bunch from Leadership.  I usually pick out my favorites to use in my classes or hang on my display board.  The card I’m going to show you today is one of my swap cards from Leadership – I have been using it in my clubs and classes since I returned from Leadership and everyone has loved it.  The swap that I received was from Linda Purvis from Texas.  I made a few minor changes from her swap but not many. Here is my version:

And you could use this same concept with butterflies, flowers, stars, even balloons.  Most of the hearts are punched from the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series paper using the Heart to Heart punch.  You can get this paper for free during Sale-A-Bration.  The ribbon on the card is from the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon and Brad pack that you can also get for free during Sale-A-Bration.  Both of these are my favorite items to choose from and I have already gone through multiple packs of each.  Here is a full list of supplies that I used on my card.  For the big heart you can either punch it with the Full Heart punch or use the new Heart Framelits to cut it out.

I have more to share about the Leadership conference and I also plan to share more Valentine ideas since it is approaching quickly.  My Hands on Class this Friday is going to be themed “Love is in the Air” – we’ll be making some projects for those that you love.  It should be fun!
