Shoebox Swaps

We had a great time at our monthy Demonstrator Get Together last Sunday.   We had a holiday party and everyone brought food to share and participated in a shoebox swap.  Although the food is gone, I’ll share the swaps with you!

susie-brown

Stamped by Susie Brown using a stamp set called “Love You Much” which you can get after December 23rd in a fun bundle deal with a matching heart punch!

patti-sharkey-love

Another “Love You Much” stamped by Patti Sharkey.  There is glitter on the heart and Love.  The paper is designed to go with the set and will be a part of the bundle offered Dec 23 – Jan 31.

jackie-walker

Another sample using “Love You Much”.   The paper clip can be used as a bookmark, too!

trish-n

A quick and easy Simply Scrappin Card from Trish Niedergesis.  Love those scrappin’ Kits!

paula-rotmilStamped by Paula Rotmil.  LOVE this new set and the paper is de-lish!  Look for it in our upcoming catalog in January!

susan-scarpelli

Stamped by Susan Scarpelli.  The bottom folds up and is held in place by the scallop attached to the top flap. Clever, Susan!

star

Stamped by Cyndra Alderman.   Kraft card stock and chipboard stars – cute!

snowflake

Stamped by April Maingot, inspired by ?

santa

Cindy Whitaker punched this cute Santa and his big nose!  His hat brim is glittered.

nancy-parris

Peppermint Bark treat bag made by Nancy Parris.   I had been snacking on the bark before I took the picture, so it looks less full than when I got it!

marsha-perry

Marsha Perry’s chipboard sentiment hanger.  (she printed it on the computer)

I love the black brad in our filigree brad!

linda-gzThis is a box stamped by Linda Goldhersz.  The chunky red glitter really adds something special!

This gift was from Susie Brown and DID (note the past tense) have a bag of chocolate-ly peanut clusters.  Oh my, they were really good.  I had a hard time getting them away from Matt so I could have a few!

She used the Top Note Sizzix Die on the front and back of a paper bag to make the tote.

linda-g-tray

Linda Goldhersz brought her cheesecakes on this tray she bought at Ikea. She used our Decor Elements in the middle – way to go, Linda!

patti-sharkey

We are going to miss Crab & Co. now that he is on the retiring stamp list.  (sniff)  Patti Sharkey created this santa crab – He is so fun when you see it in person as his claws are glittered red and his body is green!

Stamped by Debbie Critser.  She used sponge daubers and ink pads to color the stamp before it hit the paper.

    I hope to someday be as creative and talented as all of you. My cards, though I try very hard, just don’t come out as glam as yours!
