Embellishment Swap

Camilla and I just finished another arts and crafts swap! This swap was for embellishments to be used in our various crafts. The only real rules were that we had to make them ourselves and swap a minimum of 50 pieces. Other than that, we were allowed to make whatever we wanted. Here are some of the embellies I made for Camilla.

I also made her some charms, Christmas “postage stamps” and layered paper flowers. For some reason, however, I forgot to take pictures of those embellishments. 

Here is what Camilla presented me with!

Stickpins. Yes great minds think alike!

Once again Camilla and I made each other some of the same type of items, however, they are still all unique in their own way. Each of us made other embellishments that were altogether different.

I am so glad I have a partner to swap crafts with because it gives me an opportunity to try new things and learn new techniques. I am super excited to have all these amazing embellishments and can’t wait to incorporate them into my crafts.

Thank you Camilla for a wonderful time at lunch and for leaving me with a box full of little inspirations!

    I loved making all those little embellishments. When I got home from lunch I showed all the embellies you had made to my Mom. She was very impressed! I have already used a couple of them on some tags! Thank you so much!
