POK SBS Swaps

Today I'm sharing my projects for the shoebox swap. For my ATC, I wanted to go vintage, so off I went to look at what 'parkerquilter' on SCS has created lately. She helped inspire this vintage springtime collage ATC.

I don't really understand the whole craze with putting crowns on various people and animals. Can someone explain that to me?

Stamps: Nature Walk, Clearly For You, French Foliage, Music Note wheel, Passport Cube by Impressions Obsession, Chickenwire BG by Stamp Camp; Paper: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Vintage Springtime DSP; Ink: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Bashful Blue, Soft Sky, So Saffron, Cherry Cobbler, Pear Pizzazz, Black Stazon; Accessories: Nature stampbrush set on My Digital Studio, Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Aquapainter, Sponges, Rhinestone Jewels, Sewing machine, Thread.

And for my shoebox project, I gave the Bendy Fold card by 'Emma F' a try. Lydia (Understandblue) had such a cute example on her blog, so I went along in that Easter vein.

DH gave this one the thumb's up (and he is pretty hard to please!).

Stamps: Wagon Full of Fun, Something to Celebrate; Paper: Certainly Celery, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Delicate Dots DSP (SAB); Ink: Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie marker, So Saffron marker, Brocade Blue marker; Accessories: Sponge, Bashful Blue grosgrain ribbon, Build-a-Cupcake punch, MS Grass punch, Corner Rounder punch, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Big Shot.

Thanks for stopping by!

The collage ATC is very pretty. Even though I don't "get" the crown thing either. The only thing that ever comes to mind is to make a funny scrapbook page with my DH... lol

Darling ducks! And the vintage ATC is pretty darn cute too. I don't get the crown thing, but I guess I don't really understand the ATC concept either! I guess I need some education ;)

Both of these are really cool! Not sure of the trend to put crowns on everything!

Heidi - I love your ATC! (and the crown works great here...it gives the card a hint of the bizarre!) If you have extra to trade, please keep me in mind!

I don't get the crown thing either, but it's all over my middle school Students' clothing! I love the ATC and the card--very creative!
