Shoe Box Swap… Part 1


This post is a little picture heavy…..But it’s worth it!

Recently I organised a Shoe-box swap with some fellow Demonstrators and friends of Stampin Up!

Whats a shoebox swap i hear you ask, well… Each person taking part makes up a project.  That project can be a card, scrap page, 3D item etc., but it must tie in with either the theme or specification of the swap.  The only brief that I gave those taking part was that it HAD to be current Stampin’ Up! products and should be something that you could easily replicate for a class or make & take.

So with those instructions in mind, here are some of the fabulous projects that we made.  Now they’re not all shown here as a couple of Demo’s request theirs to be posted another time as the project was being used in a near future training session.  So sorry all, no spoilers!

Please not that all these projects I have made but using the kit and instructions by the ladies credited.

First up is this gorgeous one from the very talented Sarnie. Isn’t it a great use of the Heart Punch to make the large flower?  Can you name all the punches that she has used?


This gorgeous chic card is from the very talented Dawn.  The mix of images from Elements of Style and Established Elegance work so well don’t they?


Next up is this ATC Photo holder Card from my good friend Valerie.  Val used the images from By the Seashore and embossed the onto River Rock cardstock and carefully cut out. These are then attached to the outer of the ATC and trimmed.  Can you see the mini pencil tucked in there?


Next up is this adorable Twirly Whirly Birthday from Vannessa.  The little pinwheels are made using the Sizzlits Pinwheel Die that can be found in the Spring/Summer catalogue. 


Why have I not made more Stepper Cards I do not know!  They are so much fun to make, and even more fun to receive.  the fabulous creation is from the lovely and very funny Anel Laurens.  This is a great project for use in a class. The butterflies are a great addition, and can be run through a Textured Impressions folder to add more depth.


I think all thanks should be given by the cupful!  And you can do just that with this design by Jessica Parkin.  Such a simple, neat design.  The pearls add a nice little touch to the centre of the flowers on the teacup from the Tea Shoppe stamp set.


Easel Cards make a card more fun, just like stepper cards do.  And this lovely one by Jen is not only a lot of fun to make, but also to receive.  The little greeting is tucked away inside until  it is opened and put on display.  The little tree image is from Lovely as a Tree, which I love using.  It is a great must have set.


Oh My, I just love this gorgeous set of very masculine cards from my lovely friend Carole. The French Foliage set really makes a One Sheet Wonder card set so simple and quick to make.


I hope you like the projects shown here, and this is just a few of them…..Yes you’ve got mine to come as well!
