Shoebox Swap - May 17 & 18

Hello again! I mentioned about a week ago that I would be posting about an upcoming event that I've had the pleasure of participating in a couple of times - a Shoebox Swap! These swaps are a great way to have fun with friends & family, get a variety of wonderful cards, and allows creativity sprinkled with inspiration for all the participants!!!

If you've never done one before, the idea is pretty simple. Each of you will design and assemble one card. Then you will bring all the supplies necessary to complete your card for each participant in a shoebox or other container (ie. precut cardstock, stamps, ink, embellishment). I am limiting each date to 8 people (so you will have your sample already made for us to copy, plus enough supplies for up to 7 other people). I will have a RSVP date, and will email everyone with a final headcount 1 week prior so you'll have enough time to precut all the materials needed for your card. There are a few other suggestions that I'd like to ask for each of you to make this a great experience. Think of this as a mini challenge! Let's try to keep assembly time for your card to less than 15 minutes, have a minimum of 2 layers on top of your cardbase, and incorporate 1 embellishment (like a ribbon, or brads, or perhaps a silk flower - you choose!).

Please RSVP by May 8th, so that I can email everyone with a final headcount on May 9th. If you RSVP before May 4th - you'll receive a free handmade gift from me at the swap! The cost is $3 to cover refreshments (drinks, fruit/veggie tray, CHOCOLATE!). If you need to order supplies, please let me know or order online with my website by May 4th to ensure delivery with plenty of time for you to prep for the swap. This event gets better and better with more people (let your friends and family know about it!), so hurry and click here to reserve your spot today - remember, the limit is 8 for each date
---> Sunday, May 17 1-3pm OR Monday, May 18 12-2pm.

If you have any questions, please let me know by using the contact page or my email at Can't wait to swap with you!!!
