Summer Swaps

It's supposed to be Summer.  I'll say it again, it's supposed to be Summer!!  We went down to the NSW Coast for our summer holiday, but I wouldn' say the weather was very summery, spring weather at best!  So with Summer being a bit of a non-event this year, I will talk about Summer Mini swaps instead!

I belong to a wonderful group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators called Avid Inkers, we've had members come and go, but they've all been lovely and all contribute to the group in their very own special way!  Anyway, we were having a Christmas meet up in December (which I couldn't go to, as my kids had gastro or something like that), so I sent my swaps in the mail.  I will show you when I can some lovely swaps in return!

I used a lovely Valentine's stamp set called 'You are Loved', but you can see that in my swaps, they aren't Valentine oriented at all.  Shows how versatile Stampin' Up! stamps can be!  I made little gift cards that accompanied the main piece ......

My lavender heart sachets!  I stamped the heart onto some white cotton fabric (homespun I think) using StazOn ink, sewed all around with the new Cherry Cobbler bakers twine (SO LOVE THAT!), and used pinking shears to cut.  I also filled each heart with sweet smelling lavender.

Pity I didn't make enough for myself ....  they would make great little additions to my clothes drawers!
