Card Swaps!


If you have ever been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator or perhaps part of a large craft group, you will have heard of cards swaps. It's something us Stampin' Up! Demonstrators like to do when we get together to learn new techniques or get new inspiration from each others work.


I wanted to show you my latest card swap today - a card front in Perfect Plum.



Swaps are where you make approximately 50 card fronts or tiny gift boxes and swap them with other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators for an alternative craft project. Not only do you get to mingle and talk crafts with other people, you also end up with 50 beautiful handmade items to take home!


I absolutely love swaps! I have a box full of about 100 from 3 different events and I have a good look through these when I am having a creative block.


A few weeks ago I spent the day with fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. After swapping and mingling we spent the rest of the day crafting, eating lovely cake and having a good natter. 


Days like this are one of the best things about being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, you suddenly start meeting lots of people who all love crafting and who are more than willing to help and support each other.


We made this wonderful flip book and basket that Michelle Last designed and I hope to show you these very soon!




You can make a card like this by using the Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set, the new Note Tag Punch from the Spring/Summer Catalogue and the You Made My Day Stamp Set from Sale-a-Bration. 

I have listed below the supplies needed to make this card, in fact, if you buy all of the items you would earn the You Made My Day stamp set for free!
