Shoebox Swap May 1, 2015

My friend Jeannie knows that I love shoebox swaps and when a group she meets with on the first Friday of each month planned a swap, she invited me to join in.  I asked if our friend Pam could come too and Jeannie said sure.  Several ladies Pam and I already knew, besides Jeannie – Tange, Therese and Bonnie.  Our hostess was Jan, but she just came to socialize as she hadn’t been feeling well. Jan’s husband let us into a nice meeting room of an organization he belongs too.  I took pictures of each sample and promised I would blog them, so here they are.  I personally haven’t finished all of mine, but I have everything I need to finish each one. 

These first two are by Amy and Bonnie.  The flowers were stamped and punched already for each kit.  The doll was by Bonnie and included paper piecing on the dress and fussy cutting along the side.  Amy and Bonnie wanted to make sure I added that their cards were inspired by cards they had seen on Pinterest.


The motorcycle card is by Jeannie.  She had everything already stamped and die cut for a car, but Pam’s and my DH are mocy kind of guys, so we stamped and die cut the mocys for our cards.  The mosaic and butterflies was my card.  My card was also inspired by Pinterest, specifically Knall Crafting out of the UK.


Pam made the box-pleated butterfly card and Patty did the coffee cup, both inspired by Pinterest.


Tange made this little berry basket with lots of goodies inside – bag topper, tags, etc.  Therese made this beautiful die cut rose and colored it with pastels and markers. 


That’s it till next time.  Comments are always welcome.
