Shoebox Swap Tomorrow!

I'm heading to the CNY Shoebox swap for the day tomorrow - I can't wait!! Have any of you participated in a gathering like that before?? It's lots of fun... meeting up with some of the stampers you know from SCS and spending the day stamps. It doesn't get much better than that! Unfortunately I have about a 2 hour drive to get there.... but it's NEVER too far when it comes to stamping!!


Here are a couple of cards I made today in between finishing up my projects for tomorrow. The red/white/blue card was made using NY Giants colors (Go Giants!!). I colored the flowers in with copics, then added a few layers for a pretty simple and clean looking design.



The second card was made with one of my new Gina K stamp sets - designed by her daughter!! I colored Anna Mae in with prisma pencils, then sponged the background to match the dp. The paper is from Basic Grey two scoops paper pad. The color is a bit odd for a valentine... but I like it!


One question.... anyone interested in participating in an ATC swap? I've never hosted a swap before, and I love ATC's because they dont' use up too much paper. Leave a comment if you'd participate.... if there is enough interest I'll post the details.


Have a great weekend everyone!

I love doing ATC swaps--have participated in some on PCMB. They ARE fun, and make cute and simple embellishments for other things if you don't want to collect the ATC's themselves. I would participate!!

Michelle, can you point me to a source to find out more details about how to hold a shoebox swap? My downline gals and I would really like to try one, but I have no idea of the logistics involved. Have a great time! Thanks ~chris

I'd LOVE to join in on your ATC swap, when, and if, you decide to host one. I joined several different themed-ATC swaps on SCS about 6 months ago, or so. They really are SO much fun, and the amount of creativity that can be fit on that small size is unbelievable!! If you DO decide to host one, put me down for several spots. I think it would be great! Have a good one, Michelle!
Hugs to you---Pam (4Hounds)

I just signed up for my first ATC swap on SCS! I'd happily sign up for yours, too! I have one of the ATC trio albums SU! sold last year, all decorated but very empty.
