Divas' Stamp Camp In A Box

Hi Stampers! Happy Tuesday! Swapping is one of the many fun benefits of being a member of Utah Divas International. It is also a great business resource for Stampin' Up! demonstrators. Swaps are a fun way to share your creativity with others and enjoy theirs in return! They are a great way to get cards, layouts, gift items, stamp camp ideas and more! We invite and encourage all of our members to join in swaps.

Stamp Camp in a Box "SCIAB" was created by one of our dear Divas, Jeanette, to help demonstrators plan and design projects for stamp camps and/or stamping events. Rather than designing a bunch of projects by yourself, you can simply join other Divas to come up with great projects together. Stamp Camp in a Box is structured as a swap. Usually if you sign up for a card front swap, all you get back are card fronts. The SCIAB swap is designed so that everyone in the swap makes a different type of project, so you get a variety of projects back!!!! Each person signs up to make one type of project (examples might be level 2 or 3 card fronts, 6x6 scrapbook pages, gift item, non-card item, trading cards, etc.). Plus you get instructions that you can hand out at your stamp camp or event!

Maria W is our current SCIAB coordinator. She comes up with themes and serves as hostess. For the recent SCIAB swap,

Maria challenged us to use stamp sets and embellishments from the Spring Occasions mini catalog. The projects to choose from included a card, a 6x6 page, a 6-pack of tags, a treat holder, a 2-5-7-10 box and a non-card item.

You will see that I chose to make the 6-pack of tags. From top to bottom are tags made using Tart & Tangy, By Ones and By Twos, Live You Dreams, and a scrapbook page tag using In The Stars and Afternoon Tea DSP.
Email me directly at jim.edie@roadrunner.com if you would like the directions to make these tags AND, If you would like to find a Diva Demonstrator in your area or if you are interested in joining Utah Divas International, please email utahdivasinternational@gmail.com

Thanks for visiting Utah Divas & Happy Stampin'! EdieB
