Woohoo! My first pages using swap items.

hffmheidi made The Living Seas topper and Tag.



The Soarin' photo mat, word, and shape were the very first swap pieces I made. I was bummed that I couldn't fit the journal box on the page. I'll have to use this year's pictures with that.



These were all made for the Newbie swap.

Great job! I just love seeing how people use the swap items on the layouts. Your items look FAB!

LOL, at the pirate stuff. The mat, squares and ship I made for the 2nd Chance swap. And looking at the photos from that swap, it was only 2.5 years ago so not quite 3...yet. And I think Buffy made the journal boxes.

I thought some might have been yours, but when I was tidying up I amalgamated a few bags to save space and lost some of the paper slips I've got a few other bits waiting still - kitcheny stuff I think - from that swap. I'm realy trying to use up older bits (or at least put them where I can find them) as its too easy just to get out the latest box and drool, when there's plenty of really good stuff that's been waiting for the right pics to be taken (OK, I admit it, I take pics to match my pieces sometimes )

Icesk8abc, great job on your pages! I love seeing how swap pieces are used! Can't wait to see more.

Mazda, I think you should get the award for using the most swap pieces! You always seem to be using them. I wish I would do that. I have boxes of swap pieces that I need to use. Of course, I also have boxes of pictures that I need to scrap. Maybe I should stop swapping and put those boxes together and make pages!!!

Anyway, Mazda, great job on your pages. I like how you used the Disboards topper for the page of you and Rita. Perfect choice!

Its so lucky Rita came over - I've had that topper ages I've actually got two boxes of swap pieces - everyday stuff and colour swap - next to my scrap area. Plus a load of Disney put away for "next time........". I think I use a lot because I'm too lazy to cut paper/find embellisments otherwise I'll put the effort into a swap but otherwise its a bit "slap this piece of paper down and stick the pics on".

Oh, same here! I most often look through what I have & use that instead of putting something together for myself lately. Maybe I need to pretend like I'm making something for a swap and mail it to myself to get some effort for my own stuff

DIT - totally NOT a good idea to stop swapping to work on pages I've thought of that too and then realized all of the good stuff I'd be missing

I'm still running in her shadow but I think Im keeping up with Mazda.
Mazda has taught me that yes the pieces are pretty but they are not meant to stay put away in their baggies
and Rebecca taught me about kitting! Things do go much faster.
Mazda, I scrap the same way. We put the time into our swaps but not our own work. But we usually know we'll be something of our own back.
Great lo's Mazda and perfect topper!
I have pieces put away for this past trip and even for the trip we'e taking next year.

DisneyBarlans made the lovely lyric card

I made the reindeer and Pluto.
123SA made the italy sinage,
and I believe that AWM made the Sleeping Beauty tag.
Other pieces are pieces and tags left from other sets and if you can claim them I will be happy to again give credit where credit is due.

I have been kitting and only have about 6 individual pieces that I dont have placed yet so am thrilled to let you all know that I have almost used all of my Christmas swap pieces!!
the christmas photomat on the tree paper is mine :D

YES! I found my connector cable for my camera - now I don't have to wait to use the other computer to upload and transfer over my pix!

This is from this year's Super Sports & More in the American Girls group, but I don't have the tag for credit.



There's only one piece used from a swap, but I thought I'd share it anyway. I even used the magic mes/drywall tape that was used on top of the fishie border to protect it. The border is by 123SA. Also, I matted the pictures in yellow after I took this picture - it really popped the pictures more.
