Oops! I forgot to tag the things I sent. I'll get some made and sent your way with the next package of goodies.

Let me know if you think cards would sell at the DM auction. If so, I'll add some to my next package to DM.

Thanks Kathy!  I really love them and I know that I would buy them.  Smiley  Thanks for sharing this project.  I googled and saw how one person made hers.  What are you using for the metal parts that go under the parts you want to cut?


To make the cards I used a set of Sizzix thin dies designed by Stephanie Barnard called Flip-Its. She has several shape sets available, but these are the oval cut. Any papercutting system will work with this set. Some of Stephanie's dies are the Bigz style and may not work (too thick) in a CuttleBug, so pay attention to the style die you're buying versus the brand of cutter you use. A Big Shot should cut any of the Sizzix dies.

I was watching one of Stephanie's videos last night and picked up a neat trick to add a flip page to the card that will allow you to add more words or embellishments. That's my next card project.

Met my first goal (actually #10 on my list) for the year - to learn a new cardmaking technique. These are flip cards. Sorry for the darkness of the photos.

Finished another fabric book for wee great-greatniece #5. Oops! Posted the wrong book the first time. Think I've got it right this time. It should be The Scrawny Tawny Lion.

And two shorts sets for the oldest two great-greats' dolls.

AIMR, if you're running low on blues just use the other forest and beach colors. The blocks don't have to use blue.

Bunny, since you have airline connections, you need to consider coming to the Craftster Meet-Up in Ontario this summer! It's going to be stupendous!

Sloth, the photos are exactly the type of images I had in mind. I want to go to the waterfalls right now!

Thanks for the answer!  Now I'm going to get even more specific:  Say I'm in a swap and I crafted one large item and three smalls, do I list that as one project, or four items?

And I'm assuming that swap items would be listed after your partner had received?


I would probably list them as 4 separate items unless they were something simple and quick that I make all the time like the tissue holder I made to match your big batik bag. Then I might just count it as part of the bag.

As for posting swap items before they're received, most people don't but I do. If I didn't, it would be too easy to forget what I made when I'm doing several swaps at once. To prevent spoiling the surprise though I just say something on my list like "one large item for LBBB - Finished 01/03/16" and I don't post a photo. Once the swap has finished I go back, change the listing to "large tote bag for LBBB", and post the photo then. I like to know which months are my most productive, which items are WIPs, and how much of my crafting is from my stash. It gives me a feel for how my crafting is going and how much more effort I need to put into finishing WIPs or destashing. Most craftsters aren't that detailed in their lists and that's fine, too. Just handle your list in a way that makes sense to you. After all, we may love seeing and talking about one another's crafts, but ultimately you're doing this for yourself, to be proud of what you've accomplished. Do what makes you happy!

I was wondering...do items we make for swaps count towards the 50 projects?

That's up to you to decide. I didn't count them the first year I joined; I only made 47 non-swap items. Last year I did count swap items and ended up with 189 projects!

I think I saw someone mention another round of the Givers & Needers Swap. That would let you give paper to a crafter who would love getting it, but without adding to your stash. I've done that several times to cut down on my paper, yarn, and fabric stashes. I even gave away my small Cricut last year. You might also check with local schools, nursing homes, Scout or 4-H groups, libraries, or churches to see if they might want some of your surplus.
