I joined a Project Life Swap group on Facebook a few months back and have really been inspired. Basically every month, the admins post swap themes (8-10 usually). You sign up for how many you want and commit to making usually 10 cards utilizing the theme. Before the due date, you send your cards to the swap host. She collects everyone’s cards, sorts them, and sends you back a packet of cards.
This month, I joined eleven swaps. I'll be showing three of the swaps today:
Sketch -- For this swap, we were to make cards based off of this sketch:
I pulled out some random circle stamps from my non-SU bucket and went to town. I added the washi tape underneath the sentiment and a few rhinestones for bling. Not my most favorite card, but it looks much better in person.
Tropical Flora -- This swap was focused on making a floral card but in tropical flowers. I pulled some papers that said "tropical" to me and punched them out using my scallop punches and petite petals punch. I then stamped SU's Five-Way Flower (retired) as a background and adhered the punched shapes. My last touch was added a gold sequin in the middle of the big flower. To me, the sequin makes the card.
Days of the Week -- I chose Wednesday for the Days of the Week swap. No reason really, I just picked Wednesday. I found some great coordinating paper for the background, but didn't have enough to make seven 4x6 cards. Instead I split the different and made two slightly different cards. I added a 3x4 card of white paper with the day stamped in black. To finish off the card, I adhered some silver glitter tape (much prettier in person) and random asterisk stickers. Pretty cute overall!
