Swaps glorious swaps - Part 1

Last weekend I held a joint team training day with my good friend and partner in crime Pip Todman.  Between us, we have quite a large group of demonstrators and training is open them to and to other Stampin' Up! demonstrators in the area.

Last Saturday there were 19 of us and 14 took part in the swap. Let's face it, it's not a Stampin' Up! event if there isn't any swapping going on. I made a small 3D swap, so today I am sharing all the 3D swaps that I received.

As much as I love 3D swaps, they can be a bit naughty as they usually contain sweets or chocolate and these were no exception.

These were some of my swaps made using the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper and the A Little Something stamp set. Here's one closer up.

I used my Stampin' Write markers on the greeting and punched it out using the Extra Large Oval Punch. The whole greeting is then sitting on a piece of Garden Green card stock with I'd cut out using the one of the smaller Deco Labels dies. The gold ribbon is one of the rolls that comes in the Gold & White 3/8" Glitter Ribbon pack. And yes, before you ask there was a chocolate in it. A Lindt caramel star that was on offer at a local supermarket.

Here are the 3D swaps that I received in  return.

I have an additional 3D swaps to share, but I'm not sure who made it, so I can't give credit to whoever it was.
This cute bag (which contained an After Eight mint)
was made from some Bohemian Designer Series Paper.
I think you will agree that these are fabulous swaps and I'll be back with the card swaps that I received soon.
