Convention Swap #3

This is my third Convention Swap and is an Origami Fold with Faux metal.
I used one 8.5 x 8.5 dsp of Sunny Garden, folded it on the diagonal. Folded in each side 4 inches. Took the left side and folded back the small point 1.5 inches, returned it upright and squashed it down in order to apply my faux metal stamp made with the vintage vogue stamp and embossed with gold powder.  That small triangle creates the envelop flap holder.  When you open the envelope you have two pockets in which you can place (ahhmmm, my business card) or photos.  You can attach this little envelope to a scrapebook page and also use it for keepsakes.  Simple, simple, simple but cute!  At least I think so. :)

Back From Convention!!!

I am back!  I am tired! I had soooooo much fun meeting new friends, old friends and everyone else!  I was not thinking as I should have worn my milage clicky thing to see how many miles I walked.  I know it was LOTS!

Just got home, and it is still standing.  I remember leaving my stamping room in a mess, but geez, I didn't realize how bad it really was.  Good thing my hubby has not seen it in this condition as he was gone in another direction while I attended Convention.  So quickly straighten up and threw out paper scraps, lots of paper scraps.  I have spent the last day chasing cobwebs out of my house, unloading cards, looking at my goodies and other fun things as previously mentioned.

I think tomorrow I will be able to add all my cards so you can see what I made for Convention swaps.  Please bear with me.   First, I had to do lunch with my friends today (our usual Wednesday activity).   Tomorrow is already Thursday and we are having a major storm outside and here I am typing away on the computer.  LROTFL.  Better post before it goes up in a sizzle.
