Seminar Swaps

One of my favorite things at Seminar (besides the unveiling of the new catty of course) is swaps and swapping with other angels.

This year I made card fronts and "special" trades.

Here is my card front card:

Sweet Birthday Wishes

I used my favorite set from the Magalogue called Little Cupcake. I stamped the cupcake in blue ink and then colored it with colored pencils and OMS. I mounted it on a scalloped circle and then stamped the sentiment also from Little Cupcake in blue ink as well. I added a splash of coordinating colors with adding paper strips from either the Kaleidoscope Boyz or A Little Whimsy.

I made just over 80 of these to swap!

For my "special" trade I made a post-it note holder. I figured everyone could use post-it notes to mark the pages with new sets that were on their wish list.


I used a stamp from the set that we received for seminar. I colored the contents of the pencil jar with copics and then paper pieced the can with paper from the Uptown Girl collection. I punched a black scalloped circle and mounted that on 4" coasters that I covered with Uptown Girl paper as well. I used my Bind It All to bind it together and then adhered the post-its inside.



I made 24 of these. (I know there are only 16 in this picture!)

Well I am off .... hoping to post a few snippets once I get my hands on the new catty!!! I am sooo excited!
