Grand Vacation Swaps

10 May 2014

Swap Time - Hello Sailor!
As most of you who follow my blog know, I am currently on the 2014 Stampin' Up! Grand Vacation. We are being absolutely spoilt on the Allure of the Seas, cruising the Caribbean!

At most events demonstrators take part in something called 'swaps'. We make multiples of one creation and then swap with other demonstrators, it's lots of fun.

I made my swap more like a keepsake or memento, so other demonstrators can scrapbook their adventures 'Project Life' style. And what's even better? Stampin' Up! and Project Life have joined forces! 

Here's the little keepsake box made with the envelope punch board:

And here are six 3x4" cards that will fit perfectly into the Project Life pocket pages:

I know six won't be enough to scrapbook our amazing journey, but hopefully it gives everyone some inspiration. I am hoping to see what some people come up with.

I used the stamp set from the Occasional Catalogue, 'Hello Sailor', which I think was perfectly suited for our trip.

Thanks again for stopping by,
Lou xo
