52 Week Swap, Round 5

Whew!!! This is quite a feat and those ladies who have been participating since round one began - hats off to you!!! This swap is quite a challenge, but really keeps you going. Beautiful items this round, as always. I just love the way we all have the same theme, but nothing ever turns out the same :)

Star Theme (yes, the star that is not made from paper was ok'ed)

Bird Theme

Yellow Theme

Zoo Theme

Bo Bunny Paper line - two pieces

Summer ATC's

Flag Theme

Butterfly Tags (and a sneaky little gnome who was missed for the yellow theme pic :))

Wow is summer flying by

Camping, travel, events - I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted on my blog!!

Anyway - I have been having fun working on various layouts and trying new techniques with Alcohol Inks. I found a wonderful box that I am altering for a swap (sorry, no full pics just yet). Below is my first attempt. I messed up the instructions, but like how it looks a bit peeled/old. This is just my sample/trial one - the real one will be different colors and all. Since purple is my favorite, I figured that in case it works out - I want to have one I will enjoy!!

We also held a short and sweet tag class last week over at Below are the tags we created. Again - another pic from my cell phone as my camera was busy traveling!

Part two of this class of quickie tags will take place this week (Thursday). To attend the class, you just need to be a member of the site.

Starting in September, we will go to audio and visual and ability to ask questions of the instructor for our classes. Kind of a big step as we have had written instructions and video, but never together. I am really excited to make this step on my site.

A few of our upcoming classes include:
Post It Note holders
Tim Holtz Inspired tags
Spinner Album
Rolodex/Birthday reminder file
Ink and Water techniques
Alcohol Ink techniques
