Fall / Winter 2009 Idea Book Swap

It's that time again, another swap. As in the past, with the release of our new Idea Book I decided (last minute) to participate in another swap. I wasn't going to do it this time around, but when the swap organizer still had some spots open pretty late in the game, I felt like I should step in. Who am I kidding? I love getting all those goodies back, but it is a lot of work.

As I've mentioned before, we are assigned a certain size card or layout, a certain new paper pack to use and a featured new accessory. Every item has to be from our new Idea Book being released at that time. This time around, of course is the Fall/Winter issue. So my assigned project was: 3 1/2 x 8" Vertical Greeting Card using Jingle Paper (our new Holiday paper this year) and I had to use "Juniper" Waxy Flax. So this is what I came up with for my 44 items.




















This isn't all 44, but you get the jist. Isn't that paper cute? I love it!! I'm definately going to be using "Jingle" a lot!

OK, back on track, here's a close up of one of the cards. They're pretty simple looking, but they did take some time with stamping the backgrounds, cutting out pieces and poking all those holes. That was a lot of holes!!







Well, there you have it. My cards were shipped to the swap organizer up in Seattle area last Friday and now I should be getting my box of goodies any day now. Can't wait, it's always like Christmas opening up the box!

All items are CTMH:
Stamps - Holiday Commentary, Ornate Ornaments, Spot On Backgrounds
Paper - Jingle Level 2 Paper Pack
Ink - Juniper, Tulip & Baby Pink
Accessories - Juniper & Blush Waxy Flax
