What I have for you today are the swaps I made for the recent regional conference in Melbourne plus what I received back from others when I swapped. This year for the first time instead of making 60 odd swaps all the same, I decided to break up the boredom and do three different designs. First was an ice cream cone using the new lattice embossing folder from the upcoming Mini Catalogue.
Next was a cute little Christmas wreath door made using the Welcome Christmas stamp set embellished with some Rich Razzleberry Ribbon and an antique brad for the handle.
and finally, my favourite, some little easel desk top calendars. You see I am a HUGE cup cake fan, just scan back through the posts to see more... so I thought this was a great idea.I purchase my little calendars from here. I have used the Simple Birthday Thanks stamp and stamped onto DSP then cut out, used my tombo adhesive glue and adhered them to some whisper white card to give them some strength, decorated with some ribbon and antique brads (luv these) and assembled onto the easel frame. Finally I decorated with some rhinestones or pearls.
Lastly here are the gorgeous swaps that I received back from everyone I swapped with.
I will be back soon with the completed make and takes from the conference, you see I have to finish them first LOL!
