Today I’ve got some Swapbot happy mail to share with you. I made this cute mini folio flip using the Crate Paper Snow and Cocoa Collection (Crate Paper if you’re reading…please oh please do another printing of this!) lol. I love this collection – it’s oh so fun and I was thrilled I was able to get my hands on another 6×6 paper pad and chipboard sticker set for this season, but now I am running very low! I may have to add experimenting with digital collections to my list of things for the new year… Ok enough chit chat – here’s the video of what I came up with:
And here are your stills:
This was a really fun and quick project (depending on how much you embellish & what goodies you send).
I love the look of adding the snow pen on top of the chipboard – I’ve actually never thought of that before and now I’ve made a mental note to try embellishing chipboard in other different ways.
Goodies pictured are a washi sample (randoms from my stash) and sentiment stickers from Snow and Cocoa.
I’m having a lot of fun with that fake snow from Target this year 😉
Goodies pictured are gold glitter deer die cuts (Hampton Art) and a Snow and Cocoa mason jar.
Last, but not least I added in a glittery snow mix packet and wrapped everything together with some baker’s twine.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my project – hope it gave you some inspiration for your own paper crafting goodness. xoxo, Sarah
Greetings from stormy Baltimore…it’s been raining here all day. Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to stay in and do some more crafting this weekend 😉
This will be my final Halloween video for the season…I wanted to wait to be sure it was received before posting so as not to ruin the surprise and now that I’m sure it’s arrived I can share it with you.
Here is how I put the goodie box together:
Here are some close-ups:
If you’d like to see how I made all those goodies, check out day 6 & 7 of the series. Thanks so much for stopping by today (and your patience as I’ve run late with some of these videos). Now on to a few Thanksgiving cards and the Christmas Series! xoxo, Sarah
Today I’m sharing a quick unboxing video of a surprise Halloween happy mail package I received from Alexandra. Thank you – you totally made my day!!!
Here are some close-ups of the goodies:
Ahh – in LOVE with these rosettes. the picture doesn’t do them justice – that glitter is gorgeous 🙂
Thanks again to Alexandra! and thanks to you for stopping by! xoxo, Sarah
Hi-ya! Hope everyone is having a great week! I’m currently filming some cards using the SSS Special Edition Mother’s Day kit (aiming to have it posted on Friday) but wanted to share this happy mail video with you in the meantime. I have so much fun creating these swapbot exchanges. If you’ve never tried it out I recommend giving it a shot! Here is what I came up with for a travel flip book exchange:
Here are some close-ups of the finished pages:
I thought this shaker window made a great start for the front of the flip book. I could make those shakers all day every day – it’s so much fun to shake it when that last seam is finished.
That tag was really hard for me to part with – I love those copper/rose gold accents but it went perfectly with that suitcase so I had to use it.
That taxi paper is my favorite of the bunch. I layered the postcard and New York ticket with the subway chipboard and then added the sequin share pouch to finish this page.
I like to add a little envelope with a handwritten note on all of my happy mail projects.
I made a few more envelopes with matching notecards to share and attached them with a belly band. Don’t you just love that sending love sticker?!?
I really wanted a sticker that said big ben, but I didn’t have one so I went with let’s travel. Those Tim Holtz Tiny Phrase Stickers came in really handy to add an extra something to the book.
Taxi or Subway – I’ll take New York any day of the week. Here I added an envelope and filled it with a bunch of matching ephemera.
I used the rolling stamp and some SSS intense black ink to add items to that bucket list.
This envelope came in a special envelope ephemera pack to match the collection. I added the rolling suitcase (another fav from the chipboard pieces) and tied in the blue again in the upper corner using the airplane sticker.
I’ve been eyeing one of those flair button makers for a while and finally took the plunge and got one. I plan to make some to sell (eventually – you know with all that extra time I have, lol) I’ll keep you posted on that once I get some packs started.
Thanks so much for stopping by today – Hope you enjoyed the video! xoxo, Sarah
