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

SAS

Well, its been a busy couple of days. We had a stamp-a-stack at my house yesterday with 19 ladies showing up. Cutting about 250 projects hurt my wrist after a while. Here are two out of the five of my projects.

The first one is a bad scan. It's hard to see the fish through the dazzling diamonds and the packing tape in this picture. It's from Very Punny. The ladies were going crazy over the cuttlebug. I just love how it adds that perfect touch in such a fast time. They are hooked.... ALMOST as bad as me! LOL! And this cindyribbon.... gotta love it!





This next one was similar to one tha I did for a swap. This is my favorite color combo right now: Cool Caribbean, Certainly Celery, and Real Red. I colored the flowers using the reinker and fantstix by Tsukinko. The tip stays pointy even after 50 swaps...... and I don't want to mess up my markers. LOL!

But, I met some nice ladies and had a good time. Waking up at 5:00 to cut and bag projects and cleaning up around 9:00.... was ALL worth it. Had a blast.
