I’m taking a break from Mix It Up Monday this week as it’s been a busy weekend with my trip to Telford for the Stampin’ Up!® OnStage Local event. Instead I thought I would show you all the lovely swaps I received.
I’ve categorised them and, as you can see, the overwhelming theme was Christmas – and if my haul was anything to go by, that gingerbread man was very popular, too.
I know you shouldn’t have favourites, but I do love that vellum Totally Trees card... and the Swirly Bird Christmas card is very cute, too.
Next up are non-Christmas cards and, as you can see, I didn’t receive very many of those at all, although they are all very lovely.
Finally, the 3D (non-Christmas) selection. I’m always amazed what people manage to create for their swaps as I am really not so good at 3D projects. I’m always doubly amazed that they manage to get them to the event in one piece as I rarely manage to get them all home safely and, in fact, one bit the dust. I haven’t shown it in case I didn’t put it back together properly and don’t show it to its best advantage.
Hats off to the lady who made the little box holding the jar of lemon curd, both for the lovely gift and for getting that ribbon through those tiny holes. I have removed the jar but will never manage to get the ribbon back!
And those are my swaps. I don ’t go overboard on swapping and made about 40 I think. I have found that any more than that become hard to get rid of because people are “all swapped out”.
Thank you to everyone who swapped with me – your creations are fantastic!
