Scrappy Leadership Swap

January 19, 2014 No Comments

When I signed up for Leadership last fall, I quickly signed up for a shoebox swap (more about that another time).  But, I gave no thought to individual swapping.  As I’m sure you’re all familiar, as the Fall wore on and turned into the Holiday season things got busier and busier.  I took on a couple of custom design projects right before Christmas and as far as I was concerned, that sealed the deal.

Come the first of the year it was time to get my ducks in a row for Leadership.  I began making my packing list, checking my shoebox swap and putting together a roommate gift.  Well, I just couldn’t stand it.  I had to make something but I was down to just a couple of days before leaving.  So here’s what I did — Looking around I spied all of the bits and pieces I had left from the custom projects.  There just had to be something I could make out of them.  And this is what I came up with:

Leadership SwapI used a Basic Gray base.  Then, I pulled out a new stamp set – Perfect Pennants.  I couldn’t wait to put some ink on it.  On the Pear Pizzazz, I stamped “Make a Wish” with Versamark and heat embossed with Gold embossing powder.  Next I picked up one of the half oval pieces of Marina Mist I had lying there.  But it needed some texture.  So, I ran it through the Big Shot in the Alphabet Press embossing folder.  I spied strips of Soft Sky in a pile and added one of those to the layout and thought things looked pretty good.  Then, I remembered I had bits and pieces of Epic Day designer paper left from the Epic Day mini album and used those to create a banner under the focal image.  I really thought I would be done but, the space in the upper right looked too empty.  After wandering back and forth for a while, I decided to break out my new Word Bubble framelits.  The unique shape was just what I needed.  Inserting a Daffodil Delight star from Perfect Pennants seemed like the ideal “comment” to go in the word bubble to coordinate with the “Make a Wish” sentiment.  Ahh done!  I made thirty of these and had fun swapping them out for thirty other creations.  Wish I had started sooner.  I’m sure I had enough scraps to have made fifty.

If you’re hording scraps, give this one a try.  No scraps on hand?  Good for you!  Just go to my website to order your supplies.
