Check out the latest Lotts of Designs projects!!

♥ Card Swap Day view!! ♥

The Lotts of Designs Studio has been busy with various projects, there was barely time to post them all. One of the latest projects was a card featured at the Immanuel Church Scrapbook Ministries 'Card Swap'. We chose to feature a card with the "Thinking of You" theme. I created the cards with matching envelopes.



To prepare for the card swap we had to prepare 26 packs of materials for other card makers (both beginners and experienced) to re-create your card.

The 26 packs of cards contained 1 white card folded with a Martha Stewart scorer and a white envelope and a piece of pink or green paper. At the card swap there was a table with all the supplies provided for each card maker to create my card. There were other stations set up for myself to re-create other cards, I had a blast!!
