5th Annual Hudson Valley Shoebox Swap

This past weekend we gathered for the 5th Annual Hudson Valley Shoebox Swap.

I can't believe we have been stamping together in the Poughkeepsie area for 5 years!  :)  I'll share my swaps with you.

3 x 3" Notecard Swap & Custom Envelope -

An elegant gold and vanilla notecard, perfect for a birthday or wedding thank you.  The card front is shorter than the card back, with the washi tape on the inside, to carry the design through to the handwritten sentiment.

Stamps: Four You; Paper: Very Vanilla, Gold Foil Sheet, Vanilla-colored copy paper; Ink: Versamark; Accessories: Gold embossing powder, Watercolor Wonder washi tape, Envelope Punch Board.

Green Bunny Shoebox Swap -

I was overflowing with button and brad containers, so it was time to re-purpose them.  This project uses the containers, as well as patterned paper from a past Sale-a-Bration special.  All free; don't you love how this project starts?

I used the larger hole from the crop-o-dile to punch the side of the container, and the lollipop stick is held in place with some hot glue.  A bit of punch art, and you have a cute little favor.  Best as I can tell, this idea originally came from Becky Roberts.

Paper: Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Delicate Dots DSP; Ink: Pink Pirouette, Basic Black marker, White Gel pen; Accessories: Stitched ribbon, Burlap ribbon, Oval punches, Circle punches, Full Heart punch, Small Heart punch, Lollipop sticks.
