I had a few more swaps that I had to share so here is one more post including my second swap I took to convention.
So, you remember my first swap I showed you (recipe in this post) –
Well, after punching out the leaves and the flowers from the BigShot, I was going to recycle the scraps when I looked at them and said, “I could totally punch out stuff using these scraps”. So, I started punching out little hearts using the small heart punch and managed to actually get 5-6 hearts per scrap. So, from there was born the idea for my second swap.
This card uses the new Occasional Quotes hostess set. It is a perfect set for an outside and matching inside sentiment for your cards. Anyway, I had made 40 swaps and so had 40 of each color scrap, I watched a movie with my hubby and drove him crazy punching out hundreds of these little hearts. Then, the night before I left for convention, I punched out the scallop rectangles using the new Scallop Rectangle Clearlits die and then did the assembly from my hotel room. These took a bit of work to assemble but again, I felt very happy with them.
