Hello!! Happy Thursday!!!
I hope you are all having a great week! I took some time off couponing! Yes I watched the show Extreme Couponing on TLC and my hubby and I thought we would give it a try and we are not at the level of the people on the show but we have been saving $$ and getting things for free!!!
I was talking to my friend Grissell on the phone the other day and she brought up that she's been doing Swaps with a couple of her friends, and that one of her friends had some personal things going on and couldn't do the SWAP. She asked if I was interested in joining, and gave me some info about the SWAP so I decided to do it.
Here is what you had to do...
One 12x12 page layout, one card of any size and a gift.
Since there are 8 of us including me I had to make each item x 8 all the same. Each of the girls was assign a specific paper pack from the new CTMH Autumn/Winter 2011 Idea Book. Whatever paper packet we were assign we also had to use a stamp set that goes with that paper pack and also we had to use one or more new accessories that also match go the paper pack. The paper that I was assign to was Dreamin', I had to use the bulk paper available for consultants. The bulk paper pack comes with 24 sheets with double-sided designs.
Here are my projects for the SWAP...
The paper I used: Dreamin'

12x12 layout

Cards. Size 3 1/2 x 6 1/4

To make the folded "ribbon" on the middle of the card I used the top strip of the paper


Here is a close up.
