Hi Everyone! Lisa and Vicki used tins that can be found on the clearance rack to make their swaps. Above is Lisa's. She used our trick of tying a knot then threading through the layers. I shared how to do with fabric and she used with paper! Lisa's flower layers include an added interest of embosing some of the layers.By keeping some flat and some embossed, the flowers really pop! Her swap tin included 4 mini cards cut 2×4 and she found matching envelopes at a hobby store. Love how each card is different. Thanks Lisa!

Vicki swap tin uses my favorite paper from the Occasion Mini that ended last month…Vintage Spring. Vicki incorporated felt into the flower layers. The Big Shot will cut a variety of materials beside paper!  I will be stealing (wink) the layering of the scallop oval with the modern label punches. Love that combo! I'm keeping my fingers crossed they keep the big buttons in the new catalog. She also included a card using Nature Walk. She mirrored the one from the mini only stitched the edges…Thanks Vicki!

Thanks for the swaps ladies! You both are very creative 🙂

Happy Crafting!~ Dee
