SWAPS



Why oh why do I do this to myself? ........ Oh yeah! Now I remember!!!! Because I like getting the swaps back and oohing and aahing over all of the awesome samples that I get back. I just wish I could remember to do "simple" when it comes to making 41 of these babies.

When I saw this "Office Accoutrement" from Stampin' Up! and I saw the stamp that said "Daily Notes", this idea popped in my head right away. It was time for me to dust of my rubicoil (sorry for deserting you Rubi, I'm back now!) and make some notepads for daily notes. I used my baby blue coil for this project since its such a great match for Tempting Turquoise.

Since the flowers were pretty solid images, I used my Pixie Pink Craft Stampin' Spot, as well as my Tempting Turquoise Craft Stampin' Spot. I just stamped them on White Cardstock and cut them out.... yup, 41 big pink flowers and 41 Turquoise flowers. I wheeled the So Saffron cardstock with the new "Petals" wheel (which I have to say I love so much) with Certainly Celery Ink! I had a hard time cutting into my "Petals and Paisley" paper, but for this group, they are worth it.

This project took a while, but I hope the other swappers like it! :D
