Scrapbooking Stash Swaps

Are you wondering what one of those is... a scrapbooking stash swap?

Well I can finally post these pictures of one I prepared for a fellow teamie (spelling?) in my Group on UKScrappers, because she has received it now!

We decided to "do a swap" and so each person on the list posts a package to the name below hers, that way we each get a package.

The amount and what type of stuff (or stash) is dependent on each different swap, but for ours it was a "Spring/Summer" theme and enough stash to make at least one 12x12" layout, not exceeding £5-6 in cost.

Well I think there are a few layouts to be made with this package maybe, but you have to give the recipient some different choices don't you!

Not sure of the actual cost either, but it's all relative. The idea of a swap is that you "swap" (dah!!!) some of what you already have for somebody else's and (hopefully) they will give you something you wouldn't normally buy and therefore you can have fun crafting pages "out of your comfort" zone.

Anyway, the papers and tags, etc are from a K&Co "Scrap Pad to Go" Peabody. The embellishments are from all sorts of sources, the other obvious item in the pictures here are the chipboard swirls and they are by Maya Road.

I actually really enjoyed putting this "kit" together. It was all about the colours and textures and I didn't have to worry about matching in any specific photos! Now I know how much fun all those "Kit Companies" have when they are putting together kits for their subscribers!!
