Sale-A-Bration Botanical 's For You Greetings Ream Swap Card Stampin Up! UK

My Team Swap Card
Every So Often .... generally when there is a new Catalogue or Promotion, Demonstrators will come together and organise a Team Swap. This just means that we follow a remit .... this months swap was to use the Sale A Bration products. We make as many cards as there are Demonstrators taking part in the swap.
Now I can see you sitting there wondering what the benefit of this is? you are, aren't you?

Well the benefit is that we get fresh ideas on how to use Stampin Up! products to give new Demonstrators ideas they can use in their own business, whether they are 'hobby Demonstrators'; Part Time Demonstrators, or Full Time Demonstrators, like me.

We all get days where we hit a creative block, and if this coincides with the planning of an in home Party workshop, Open House event or a class; well you can dig into your stash of card swaps ,and pick out something you can use.

This is one of Stampin Up!'s Co-ordination Triumphs & here is my 
 Sale A Bration promotion is my Team Swap

The SALE A BRATION stamp set featured today (Botanicals For You) also co-ordinates with the Botanical Garden Designer Series Paper Pack, the Botanical Garden Cardstock Pack and the Botanical Garden Jewels from the Spring/ Summer Catty. And, of course, The ink pads co-ordinate with everything I have used today
