Fresh Vintage and More Swaps from the Stamp Ladies

One of my favorite sets from Sale-A-Bration is Fresh Vintage.  In fact the whole collection from the Fresh Vintage stamp set to the Everyday Enchantment DSP to the Ribbon and Brad pack are simply delicious!  Since these are all Sale-A-Bration products you can get them FREE with a qualifying order.  Don't you just love that?  

SL1-12 swap MarciaMarcia Brixey incorporated all of the 3 products (Fresh Vintage, DSP, brads and ribbon) on her lovely card.  She also used the Hearts and Labels Collection Framelits dies.  Really pretty right?

Here Laurie Gaudette used the floral image from the Fresh Vintage set to make a beautiful background.   Don't you love all the different edges?   She used the new Adorning Accents Edgelits and the Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.   Laurie also incorporated the Hearts and Labels collection Framelits dies, WOW!

Looking at  these swap cards and the others I have to share with you makes me want to stamp!  I finally uncovered the top of my craft table.  It took a while and now I can actually work on it again.  I know, what a concept!   I am telling you this beacuase one of the 12 things I am going to do this month is send 12 cards for no particular reason.  My Valentine's cards, birthday cards do not count.  It is kind of like the sweet people I know who gave me cards at Leadership even though I had nothing to give them in return. You know who you are and your cards are in the mail.   Thank you for being so kind and adding to my fun at Leadership.  

More Two-A-Days and Thank Goodness for Swaps!

I have now shown you all the beautiful projects availabe to you when you subscribe to  Craft Project Central  for the month of January.   It was really a great months worth of projects.  This means that my Two-A-Days will be coming to an end.  I will continue to post regularly so keep checking on on me.

Here's another card from the Stamp Ladies swap.  This card was made by Gail Kaisaki.  

SL1-12 swap Gail
So cute and cheerful.  This card does have a secret and let me show you.

Cool huh?  Let me give you the dimensions which will help you see the shape.

It is 8 1/2" wide at the bottom and 4 1/4" at the top.  The length is  8 1/4".
The top score (from the 4 1/4" side) is 2 3/4".
At the bottom it is scored at 2 1/8" from each edge.

This is a really fun card and I am definitely going to make some cards using this template.  Thanks Gail!

Check back with me tomorrow and I will share more of the cards with you.  


CPC Gumball Necklace, Box & Card!

Remember when you were a kid and used to get the little candy necklaces?!  I remember putting mine on (usually at a birthday party), taking little nibbles out of it, and trying to make it last as long as I could.  Here’s a fun project that your birthday girl (or boy) will love and will probably remember when they grow up too!  Makes a cute little party favor too!


This fun project comes to you designed by Heidi!  To get the instructions for Heidi’s project, just subscribe to January.
