Team Shoe Box Swap

On Monday night a few team members and I got together to do a shoe box swap. It was so much fun! A shoe box swap is basically where each person plans a project and cuts all supplies for everyone who attends to create that project. She brings everything (stamps, ink, punches etc.) required to create that project. So we created 10 different projects. I thought I would share some of them with you over the next couple days.

I apologize for the quality of the photos, they aren't the best. I tried using natural light today and I just don't like the way it turned out. My guess is there just wasn't enough of it.

The first project was a card done by Cindy O'Neill and if you look closely at the smaller photo, it actually has a chipboard pin attached to it that can be removed and worn. Sooo cute!
This card was Tracey Friths card. She used the wonderful new Embrace Life set. I love the Elegant Eggplant with the Old Olive, Eggplant is a color I love but rarely use. I think I will have to start using it again, it's such a deep, rich color.

This next one was done by Kristin Gray. I love the design of this card. She used the True Friend stamp set and popped up the flower on a dimensional. The Olive Print Pattern paper really is a nice touch.

The Pinwheel was done by Neelam Boora. I love the photo of these in the Spring-Summer collection, but hadn't had an opportunity to try them. I will definitely be making more of these - so cute! Thanks Neelam for doing all the cutting for us!

The last one for today was done by Donna Powell. She used one of my favorite SAB sets - Friendship Blooms. The strip down the side was done using the Poppin' Pastels technique. Which is a technique I often forget about but always love the look!

Thank you again ladies for all the wonderful projects and the fun times! They even had a cake and sang Happy Birthday to me, which was a surprise! I always have such a great time when we get together.

I will try to post the last few photos tomorrow or Thursday.
