Shoebox Swap – Part 1

Posted by Jeannette on 4 April 2011

I recently went to a Shoebox Swap hosted by the lovely Jane. We made some wonderful 3D projects and had a fab day with lots of talking and crafting. Here is the Project I made, which pales in comparison to the other projects. I have used an On Board 5″ x 5″ Art Journal as the base of this project.

Supplies Used: (All Stampin Up! Unless Otherwise Stated)
1. Card – Early Espresso, Old Olive, and Pink Pirouette
2. Papers – Subtles DSP Pattern Stack
3. Stamps – Art by Design
4. Embellishments – Early Espresso Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding, Sweet Stitches Designer Big Buttons
5. Tools – Flower Daisies #2 Die, Little Leaves Die, Spiral Border Punch, and Large Designer Label Punch
6. Mediums – Early Espresso Classic Ink Pad and Marker Pen

Here is the beautiful box that was Jane’s project. I didn’t finish it on the day because I had cut the window too large (that’s what happens when you talk too much). So I re-created it this weekend. I converted Jane’s measurements to Inches but because I don’t like the fiddly inches and try to work in whole, halves or quarters as much as possible, it is now slightly larger than the original. I must say that I really enjoyed doing this and I will definitely be doing more in different colours.

 Supplies Used: (All Stampin Up! Unless Otherwise Stated)
1. Card – Very Vanilla and Basic Black
2. Papers – Newsprint DSP
3. Stamps – Something to Celebrate (L2 Hostess Set)
4. Embellishments – Basic Black Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Linen Thread, and Basic Pearls
5. Tools – Fun Flowers Die, Little Leaves Die, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, 1″, 1/2″, and 1/8″ Circle Punches, and Word Window Large Punch
6. Mediums – Jet Black StazOn Ink Pad

I’ll be back next Monday to show you the other two fabulous projects we made.
