Celebrating Scotland – swaps I received part 1

In yesterday’s blog I showed you what I took along to the Celebrating Scotland Stampin’ Up independent demonstrators event.  So today I’d like to show you some of the projects I received in return.

I think if there was a top ten list of the most generous group of people in the world then independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrators would be in the top spot.  Not only do they share their experiences and skills with each other, they do the same for their customers too.

Here’s a sample of the swaps I received…


I grouped these together as they all use the stunning Share What Love Speciality Designer Series Paper or the Statement of The Heart stamp, which perfectly sums up what Stampin’ Up! is all about.

The bookmark at the back was made by Mhairi Roberts who also did a Make & Take on the day that I’ll share with you soon – such a talented lady!  The little package at the front with ‘enjoy’ on it was made by Lynne Walker and at the time of this photo had a little chocolate bar in it, but that somehow disappeared, lol.  I love that she’s used the scalloped tag topper punch so you could thread ribbon through it and tie it to a gift or maybe make a Christmas version for your tree; which would be much nicer that the normal shiny chocolates we hang on our trees.

Unfortunately, I don’t have details of who made the other swaps in this photo. The little square box has some sweeties in it and was made with the envelope punch board. The tag at the left of the photo was made using the Botanical tags set and I love that she’s added the sprigs from the same set to it.  Here’s a closer look at it, along with another swap using the same stamp…


This lovely little gift bag was made by Angela McDonald and I love the way that she has passed the ribbon under the sentiment so that it’s not obscured – I will definitely use that technique in the future.

Lastly, for today, I wanted to show you these 2 gift boxes that were stuffed with goodies…


The Gray Granite box with the Pretty Kitty on the front was made by my lovely friend Lisa Emslie of www.littleowlscrafts.co.uk.  Lisa was so generous and filled these boxes for our team full of goodies to pamper ourselves with.  Lisa is also showing you a little peek of the Frosted Floral DSP from the Autumn/Winter 2018 catalogue.

The Call Me Clover box was made by the lovely Lynne  Thomson and contained coffee and biscuits – yum!

It was a genuine pleasure to meet and swap projects with such fabulously talented ladies.  I’ve listed some of the products used in these swaps below.  You can click on any of them to visit my online Stampin’ Up! shop.

I will share more of the swaps tomorrow but until then, happy crafting!
