Stampin' Up! Convention 2012

I just got home from Stampin' Up convention.  I had so much fun!  Each year Stampin' Up has a theme song for convention.  This year's theme was "I am..." and they encouraged each of us to fill in the blank. Following is the video Stampin' Up put together for this years' theme song (it's pretty catchy):

Within the next couple of days I will post the cards I made to swap with other demonstrators at convention.  So check back and enjoy the video.

Convention Swap Labels

Every year for Stampin' Ups convention, I make about 300 card fronts to swap with other demonstrators.  This year I decided to design the label I put on back of my swaps using My Digitial Studio.  Since My Digital Studio does not have a label option for designing, I decided to design my image on a 9 1/4" X 4" landscape postcard because I wanted a large canvas to work on.  I used the Spring Fever Kit (#129608 - $7.95).  This is what I designed:

Once I had the design I saved the card as a .jpg image.  I opened a label template in Microsoft Word and pasted the .jpg image into each individual label slot (I had to stretch the image a little to make it fit the entire label).  I was then able to print off labels.
Here is what the Spring Fever kit contains:
