Shoebox Swap & Baby Card

Hello Everyone

I recently went to my first ever shoebox swap. If you don't know what that is - neither did I! When you go to a shoebox swap, you take all the cardstock, stamps, punches and embellishments needed to make a card or 3D item. You take enough for all the other people at the swap, along with a sample. Each crafter then makes one of each card and goes home with a shoebox full of lovely creations!
...

With Easter just around the corner, (and where is this year going???), there were a number of projects using the Stampin' Up! stamp set, A Good Egg. The sweet little chick got a number of outings - including this beautiful card designed by the very talented Elaine. Love the Sage Shadow cardstock and dotty background - stamped using Versamark.

More chicks will be appearing on my blog soon - as soon as I replace the chocolate eggs that have mysteriously disappeared from Hayley's creation! LOL
...

Today I am also sharing a baby card - with no Stampin' Up! prams on it. This was because I had made a baby set with the prams from Queue Up and Fun & Fast notes for my sister to give to her friend - so I wasn't allowed to do the same.
...

Instead I used In The Stars stamped in Pretty in Pink and Passion Pink to welcome little Ine into the world.



We have some great projects coming up for classes over the next two weeks. If you would like to come along, click on the Stampin' Up! link on the top left of this blog, and click on the classes button for more information.

Hope you like!
