Spring Swap

I also just sent out items for a Spring Swap on the MB. The groups I was in were Tags; ATCs; Twinchies; and Paperclips. For the tag I found a tutorial on making flowers with a scallop punch. Some are pink/purple and some are blue/green. For the ATCs I found another tutorial on using baby wipes - so that is what I used for the rainbow. I then cut out the butterfly from the Wall Decor cart and glimmermisted it. For the twinchies I cut the flower from the Paisley cart, added a rhinestone to the middle and a few stickles on the edge. The hummingbird on the paperclip was cut from Paisley and then stickled (of course!)

Paper clip swap

So I've been participating in some Swaps at the Cricut MB. One that I just sent out was a paper clip swap. I was in 4 different groups. In the Wild (animal related); Out on the town (girlie or vegas); Months of the year (I had september); and Down the Aisle (wedding related). For In the Wild I cut the turtle from Create a Critter cart and used a MS glitter pen instead of stickles. For Out on the Town I cut a high heel shoe from the Wall Decor cart and used glimmermist on it. For the month of September I couldn't decide on an acorn or a leave, so I did both, they were cut from Stretch Your Imagination cart (I think). And for Down the Aisle I cut the wedding bell from Stretch Your Imagination and then used glimmermist on the whole top.
