But really, this last one gave me such trouble. I'm talking about Amy Lobsinger's Inchies swap. Can you guess by the title that 1 inch square cards would be swapped? Well that's right!
1 INCH CARDS!!!
I thought when I signed up "How hard can this be?". Let me tell you - it was VERY hard for me!
First of all we had to use CURRENT and NON-RETIRING Stampin' Up! materials. So that excludes 90% of my stamps! I took a HUGE hit when the Retirement List came out.
I signed up for FALL and MASCULINE - 2 spots. I started out by looking in the Stampin' Up! catalogue and trying to come up with some kind of plan. Well that didn't work because I don't have any of the "mini" stamp sets that would be appropriate for my themes.
The next thing I did - which I must admit is quite BRILLIANT - was to punch out a 1 inch square out of scrap paper and really look at the stamp sets in the catalogue that I have that are still current.
Thinking outside of the box I came up with Wild About You and Lovely As A Tree (it was still out from last week!).
I won't keep you in suspense any longer - here are my swaps:
Very simple and easy - finally - in the end!
I can't wait to see what everyone else came up with...
