Super Crafty Swap

A while ago there was a post on a blog I read about a swap for crafters of all kinds. The idea was that you would have a secret crafty pal, you would check out their blog and galleries online (secretly) and then you would fill a box with carfty goodies to send to them.

The swap was hosted by Sarah and Amber. And here were all of the official details. My partner was Erika Willard. Partner meaning that she was the one I got to stalk and send a box of goodies to! She has all boys that love to play baseball and soccer. So I got her a lot of sport themed goodies with my $10. Then I filled the rest of the box with goodies from my stash. I noticed that she was into stamping a little bit so she got a few of my retired stamp sets and other goodies that I no longer had a use for.

Now my partner sent my box but I never received it...:(. So the sponsors of this swap sent me some goodies from their craft rooms. I felt so blessed that they did this for me!

Here is the box that I got in the mail.


And here is what was inside. Now let's take a closer look!!


Cute ribbons! Even the one I used to make this card.


Various embellishments. I love all of the little scallops that were already put together for me! Did you notice one on the card in the link above??


Other embellishments! I love Sassafrass ANYTHING! And those K & Company number brads are SUPER CUTE too!


Chipboard.


This is a HUGE pile of journaling spots. WOW! I think Sarah and Amber have a little problem....someone is addicted to journaling spots! Now I might be too!

Stickers.


This is a little birthday kit. I think these embellishments will go great on some birthday cards!


Die Cut pack with cute summer/fruit theme. LOVE IT!


Various embellishments! I love those tickets, trees, and that clock stamp!


And here are the papers! There were a lot of Basic Grey and Sassafrass. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE both of these designers so I was very happy!




Check out the row of B's on this paper. Perfect for my daughter, Brooke!


Die Cut papers.


Pages from vintage books. These are so popular right now! Love them!


And a few scraps of paper. I LOVE that lamp paper! I will have to find the perfect use for it!


Thank you ladies for sending me this box and making all of my paper crafting dreams come true! I will be taking this box with me to my next few crops. So keep your eyes posted for projects I make using some of the above products!
