New Swap Stuffs!

I'm in another fabulous swap in the new "Paper Girls" swap group on Facebook. There were two again this month so I gave them both a try.....altered clothespins and Project Life filler cards. I don't do Project Life but I might eventually so I figured why not. lol

I am in love with Graphic 45's "On The Boardwalk" collection. It's an oldie but a goodie. Summer's coming so I was inspired to use that line for my pins. Of course I had to be a dork and do them all different which seemed to take forever. Next time I'm making em all the same.

These are my project life cards. I used an A*Muse stamp set on them and a Lori Whitlock file for the postcard base, the heart is a wood veneer I ordered online. I was really happy with how well the white A*Muse embossing powder works.

During my search for Minnie Mouse images I fell in love with this  vintage Minnie. I just had to make something featuring her and all her vintage cuteness. A coordinating bottle cap necklace and earring set fit the bill!


I was having so much fun, I decided to make a couple more. So for my Pixar project I made a Monsters, Inc themed necklace. The bead on the bottom reminds me of some kind of freaky monster eye and my boyfriend really liked it on there so how could I say no?! lol

 I just LOVE Monsters, Inc. and the image is from one of my favorite scenes between Boo and "Kitty".....


Last but not least, I wanted give my foster mom a handmade Mothers Day gift. She just happens to love Disney and Minnie Mouse is her fave. Killing two birds with one stone, for my Disney project I made her a Minnie monogram bottle cap necklace.

Paper Girls First Swap

My friend Lameka started a swap group on Facebook for sophisticated swappers. Well not really sophisticated, lol it's for swappers who do GOOD work and like sending out QUALITY items. If you've been in a swap before, I'm sure you know what I am talking about. I've been in some doozies where most of the stuff ended up in the 'round file'. SMH

Anyway the group is a lot of  fun and the members are quite talented. We just finished our first swap. There were two.....Project Life Cards and Masculine Birthday Cards. I did the birthday cards since I don't do Project Life. Yet. LOL

Most anyone who knows me, knows I am in love with the mustache fad that is happening right now SO I decided to make my cards with a mustache of some sort. When I came across the mustache embossing folder I got last year I knew I had to use it! So with the embossing folder, some mustaches cut with my Pazzles Inspiration, some cardstock, stamps, some twine and my cards were born! And boy are they cute. I'm so NOT conceited when it comes to my crafts, but  I am really pleased with how they came out.
