Swaps for the Team

Hello Everyone,

Being part of a team of demonstrators is so amazing! Not only did we enjoy Stampin’ Up!’s On Stage event, our wonderful Up line, Sam Hammond, organised a fun packed team event…. A full weekend of sharing creativity!

Part of the fun is “swapping”. I made these simple little packets with a lip balm inside!

Paper was cut to 6 by 5 inches. Tear & Tape was added to both long sides and one short side.

Short sides were brought together first to form a tube. One end was sealed before adding the balm. The open end was then sealed.

The greeting was stamped with Mossy Meadow ink and cut with the Pretty Label Punch.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

I would love to be your demonstrator.

Thanks for stopping by today and happy Stampin’!

Team Retreat Swaps – Part 1

Hi Everyone,

I had an amazing weekend crafting with my Stampin’ Sisters at our annual team retreat. We had some marvellous make & takes too which I will be sharing soon.

Part of the fun is making “swaps”; little gifts we exchange to share creative inspiration.

This was my swap… I made 50 in total, 10 each in the five 2018 In Colours. They hold these cute little bubbles.

I don’t make many 3D projects, so these needed to be simple.

Start with a 1-1/2 inch strip of card stock cut from the short edge of an A4 sheet.

Score the strip on the long side at

  • 4-3/4
  • 5-3/8
  • 7-1/8
  • 7-3/4

For those using 8-1/2 by 11 card stock, the scoring will still work, but will create a larger piece at the end for gluing.

Fold and burnish the score lines.

Cut a 4-3/4 by 1-1/2 inch piece of coordinating In Colour DSP and adhere this to the end of the card stock. Use the Tag Topper punch to shape the end.

Flip over the card stock strip and add more DSP to the 1-3/4 by 1-1/2 section.

Punch 1/2 inch holes in the last but one section of the strip.

Fold the card stock and glue in to place.

I used a sentiment from Wood Words and punched this out.

Don’t they look great all together like this!

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

I would love to be your demonstrator.
