I Know I haven't had a post recently. I am negleting my blog. I don't intentionally do it. I just havent had anything to post as i am not swapping nearly as much as i used to.
I did complete a swap that was out of my comfort zone. Its a "fairy journal element swap."

"I made some with cricut cut outs from thin cardboard, punched shapes (sometimes I punch 2 of the same shape and glue them together),some from chipboard shapes-already cut from the store, and believe it or not--some with confetti. You know that shaped metallic confetti. I glued 2 layers (one layer didn't seem thick enough)of the shape randomly on cardboard. The trick to making the best impression is to run it thru your cuttlebug using the correct layers-and the Spellbinder rubber embossing mat HAS to be on top of the paper you are trying to emboss." (Per Heidi Inklings on SCS)
and here is the proper layering she listed for me.
1-- Plate A
2-- Plate B
3-- Folder (designed Cardboard)
5-- Rubber mat/Spellbinders Rubber impression mat
6-- piece of cardboard for shim
7-- Plate B
run through machine.
