PAPER SWAP

Over at UK Stampers Sam has organised an old paper swap - take a 12 x 12 piece of paper and play with it - jazz it up a bit with ink, stamps, anything - and then cut it into 9 4x4 pieces and do a swap. I used some Cherry Pie Stamps and some Tim Holtz. I really need some new inks as my Tim Holtz ones are nearly all dry - can you get reinkers for them? I'll have to have a look and see. Here's the before:

and here's the after

What a great way to use up an old boring piece of paper - I can't wait to get all the pieces everyone else has done. I'm going to go and do a few more pages and maybe cut them up into inch squares ready for some inchies.

Saying that though I may not get time - this One World One Heart blog hopping takes up so much time - so many blogs to get through and so few spare hours! I feel guilty sitting here so long with the dogs looking at me wanting their walk! But its cold and raining and its much more fun sitting here finding new artists and crafters and making new friends - oh ok - just a quick walk then!

Have you walked those poor dogs yet? It's not raining here but very grey....

Good to see you are having fun crafting again! These pages sound like fun!

Think I'm going to join in with OWOH swap.... I just need to get my chores done first then I can play/blog without a guilty conscience... I've got to finish my Three Muses stuff too and I've got a friend coming to play tomorrow (!) so there needs to be cake!!!! It's a good job I did give up my job methinks :)

Looking forward to seeing you soon
