I can post Swap Items now. =)

Cupcake Swap

Here is the Cupcake Pin Cushion and Banner that I made for Heidi over on Foxgloves, Fabric, and Folly. What a lovely lady and new friend. We have enjoyed getting to know one another. I am also in her Very Vintage Halloween Swap. The 3rd pic shows how the banner was wrapped in the box I decoupaged, and the 2ND pic is the cupcake pin cushion wrapped. The cupcake pin cushion was made out of felt, and beads, and placed into a plastic cupcake holder. The banner is a demo curtain from Wal-Mart that I used to add the cupcake with Heidi's name on it, beads and buttons with lime green pompom trim. On each tab I had crocheted flowers, they are sewn on with a button on each one. On the bottom corners there are Yo-Yo's with buttons. It also says YUM sewn on with tiny buttons.

Cupcake tags with different size cupcakes on them in her favorite colors: blue, brown, and white.
I also made her some Halloween Tags, some with candles, some without. The rick rack on the Halloween Tags, All Cupcakes, and Tags were cutout on my Cricut. (Hey Paula, I have a Cricut. secret joke. ha ha) There is single cupcakes, cupcakes with candles, and border cupcakes.

I cut the die cut out on my Cricut, and then used chipboard letters for her name, that has stickles on them, then they were added to a envelope. I cut the Cupcake and candle with the Cricut. The One Candle on the card that I made represents that she was my FIRST Swap Partner.

I hope Heidi enjoyed her swap items as much as I enjoyed making them.

Blooming Apron's Beat the Heat Halloween/Fall Apron Swap

This is the front view of the apron I made for Annie over at AnnieOakleaves . She has a really awesome blog, she is a very sweet lady and another new friend. I love making new friends through these swaps.

Close up of the embroidery on the front and the beads that I embellished with. Below is the apron wrapped and ready to go. I crocheted the Orange flower, and made the 2 Halloween tags.

Here are the 2 fall hot pads that I made for Annie. I made them out of Halloween fabric, quilted them, and trimmed them with vintage seam binding. Below are the hot pads wrapped and ready to go.

I hope you enjoyed your swap items Annie, I enjoyed making them for you.

Thanks for stopping by, have a WONDERFUL 3 day weekend!!!

What's that? You have a CRICUT you say? Well, aren't WE the SPOILED ONE!?!?

Hey, there's a program where you can make your own diecuts via photoshop and then cut them out...any idea where/how much one of those puppies would be??? HMMM???

Its the design studio for Cricut. One can get it at Wal-Mart or Michaels. Runs about $70-$90.
