Stampin'Up Passionettes Team Training swaps

Hello there how is your weekend shaping up to be? I hope you had a good start , I am relaxing with family and maybe I will get some crafting done as well. I have a mammoth mass production project to get through so to say I am busy is an understatement, fancy helping me out?
 I did promised I would showcase the swaps I receive at our team training last Tuesday. If you don’t know what swapping is all about, let me explain. Swaps are organized affairs where people volunteer to participate and they make multiple of the same project. Then you swap with other people and you end up with tons of clever ideas or if you are a demonstrator tons of samples to showcase. All our events as demonstrators involves swapping, I LOVE that. 
So here’s the back to school swaps I received.

How good are they? I totally love them all. I mean look at that Fox and Friends stamped pencil case, I screamed when I saw it so sweet. The packed pencils are a good gift idea and one I will pinch for sure. The chocolate box top left is full with miniatures office essentials, very cute idea. Further down the notes box opens up to reveal some sticky notes and the lady that did those even coordinated the colours with the sticky notes *only us crafters LOL*. The little black box has coloured punched up tab shapes. How brill would those be for a teacher? or a student I use tabs in my own personal SU catalogue so I know how useful they can be, again a brillinat idea I never thought of. The sweet card is  FAB and I love the punched apple with the tiny tag.
Next if you look closely at the front you will noticed a paper altered pen and the cutest corner bookmark I have ever seen. I am so going to find out how you do those, is an origami  type of fold with a heart shape front, too cute. I love creative people and I love sharing and meeting with my team. We had a wonderful time once again cannot wait for the next one. 
Here are my swaps

 I didn’t have a lot of time and the first idea I had went out the window as I couldn’t get the supplies needed so I had to do simple. I found some inexpensive calculators at my local Wilkinsons store and I simply made a card cover for them. I used the Extra Large Bird punch and a good colou combo, I love those colours together so much. Choc Chip, Pumpkin Pie. Old Olive, Pink Passion and Tempting Turquoise. the chocolate base was stamped with the Live Your Dream set. Hope you enjoyed our back to school swaps.Thank you for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend. 
Till next time Big Hugs xx.
