#tgifc13 Convention Edition!

HELLO!!!  I'm writing this from Salt Lake City, Utah and the Stampin' Up Inspire Create Share 2015 Convention!  For those of you whom I have had a chance to meet, thanks for finding me!  It's been a lot of fun to see you all :-)   If you are here and haven't ran into me, please keep looking!

This week I have played along with TGIFChallenges for the first time in a few weeks.

This week, we have a Clean and Simple challenge, so I figured "Why Not?"  I actually made this card as I was writing the TGIF post in the hotel room with some of the supplies that we had laying around. Lol!  It was actually easier for me to be limited with my materials and the theme of the challenge - usually Clean and Simple is NOT my style...I really like to over complicate things.  Luckily, we got a new Christmas themed stamp set at the convention today, so I was able to misuse/repurpose the stamp set to a non-Christmas card and I ended up a happy camper (FYI, I'm definitely NOT anti-Christmas, as you know I just prefer to craft "outside of the box" and play with the versatility of my supplies).

Disclaimer: Since I made this card tonight in the hotel room, the lighting wasn't the greatest and the picture turned out "meh."  I plan on retaking it once we get home, but we'll see what happens.

This is a note card sized project (3 1/2" x 5"), and the "Arrows" that I used were supposed to be trees from the brand new Your Presents Christmas themed stamp set.  Curious?  Excited?  Here's a sneak peak:
And here's a peek at our pop-up craft room:
Good thing they accidentally gave us a room with 2 beds! Now we have an extra crafting station!  Lol!
Ok, that's it for now.  Hope you visit and play along with the Clean and Simple challenge, or at least stop by and see what the Designers have created.  It's the first week that we have had ALL of our designers join in, so its definitely worth seeing.  For my fellow convention attendees, look forward to meeting you tomorrow! Good night!


  1. SO FUNNY! I love that you have that much stuff in your hotel room. Great card and enjoying seeing your convention shenanigans.

  2. Super fun card - I'm really impressed you were able to pull this together in a hotel room!! So glad you were able to play along this week - it's always great seeing what you come up with for the challenges!
