Spring Mini Swaps

Last Monday, I attended a shoebox swap with the 24/7 Stampers group, a demonstrator group led by my friend Ann Clemmer. A shoebox swap is where each demonstrator brings a completed card as a sample for their swap and brings (in a shoebox) all the supplies needed for the attending demonstrators to make the swap.  Most of the swaps used the Polka Dots and Paisley stamp set from the Spring Mini Catalog.  The other swaps featured some of the other stamp sets from the spring mini.

Here are the Polka Dot & Paisley samples:

And other spring mini sets:

The sets featured are Glorious Gift, Crab & Company, Bunny Hugs & Doodle That.


March THO Projects

At my Totally Hands On workshops this month, we’ll be making the card I created for a shoebox swap.  Because this card is pretty time-consuming, the other projects we’re doing are really simple.

It can’t get much better than that smile, can it?  This is my adorable son, Jared, last November.

Stamp sets: Wishing You the Best ($2 from the sale of each of these sets is donated to the Ronald McDonald House charity), Everyday Flexible Phrases, Simple Sayings II

Paper: Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White

Ink: Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie

Accessories: White Grosgrain, Rectangle Punch, 1 1/4″ & 1 3/8″ Circle Punches, Dimensionals

Easter is coming up, so I thought we’d make a pretty, spring basket.  This is very simple to do and uses only a 6×6 square of cardstock (plus a strip of cardstock or ribbon for a handle). 

Stamp Set: Roses In Winter (one of my all-time favorites! you just can’t mess this one up!)

Paper: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink

Ink: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Mellow Moss

Accessories: it really helps to have a nice Paper Cutter with a Scoring Blade

I got the template off the Stampin’ Up! demonstrator website, and found some awesome samples on Splitcoast.  Here’s one of my favorite pics (made by Cambria) because it shows some variations you can do with this basket.  (I’m not sure if this pic is located in one of the demonstrator-only sections, so if you can’t see it, someone let me know and I’ll put a copy here.)

Yesterday you got a glimpse of Polka Dots & Paisley, an adorable new stamp set in the Spring Mini.  Now you can get any item in the mini catalog at half off when you get the Polka Dots & Paisley bundle!  The bundle includes the stamp set and the coordinating jumbo wheel and double-sided designer series paper– for only $34.85!  This is an awesome deal because when you see the new spring mini, you’re going to want it all anyway!  I know I do.  And the 50% off can be used on the Simply Sent Kits you’ll find in the back of the mini catalog.  This special is only through the end of March!

So, go check out the Spring Mini Catalog and prepare to drool!  Be sure to check out the new doodling sets, the Au Chocolat double-sided designer paper, the cool office set with coordinating papers, accents & punches! and of course the polka dots- all my favorites!

Oh yeah, hostesses get to choose any Spring Mini item at half off during March just by hosting a $400 workshop or catalog party!  Call me to book yours!
