Blogging Friends Blog Hop
Here we are again another month has passed. I am still trying to figure out this WordPress. In addition to still figuring it out I am doing on it half working computer. My editing of photos are lacking and taking a very long time as well. Hopefully I ll catch a break and can take it in real soon to see if the problem is fixable. If I was a computer guru I might be able to fix it myself but I am not experienced to take apart a MacBook.
We are rolling into the holidays and things are about to get crazy. Today I am sharing my swap cards I created for a team swap I participated in. I participated in 2 different swaps so I have 2 cards to share. I actually did a Facebook live and opened the swap cards, I have only ever done one other FB live so I need lots of help with that. You can join my FB group here and check it out. I am also sharing some cards made by other swappers. I love doing swaps! It really is a good way to get lots and lots of ideas and all you have to do is make a lot of one card and you get lots of newly designed cards.
As I always tell you I am not a big time demonstrator so my budget is very little. I’ll buy a few new items and will often times have to work with what I have. That forces me to get creative and use what I have on hand.
The first card I made was an inspiration from my childhood. Growing up my grandparents had blue and green Christmas lights up at their house. You know the old fashion glass bulbs….my favorite! We still have some strands we use and those are my favorite. I really dislike the newer lights they have these days. So that’s how this card was made and thought of. This stamp set (Making Christmas Bright) is my favorite one from the Holiday catalog. I love that is comes with a matching punch. Ive been waiting for a lightbulb punch for years…since I started with Stampin’ Up!
This is my second swap card I made. This stamp set is so versatile. You notice how theres no light bulbs. This card is super simple and very duplicatable if your looking for a quick and easy Christmas card to make.
These next cards are all cards I received from other deomonstrators as part of the swap. I still have unopened swap cards!!! Can you believe I haven’t opened them all! Be sure to join my Facebook group and I’ll be sharing them this week sometime in a facebook live.
