I feel so lucky to have so many talented friends. One group of friends, some that I’ve never even met, are involved in swaps hosted by my amazing friend, Julie Weller.

Julie puts out the call on Facebook to see who wants to join in.  The last swap we made, Spring is in the Air, happened just before Easter.

ScarletCalliope Spring Tag Swap

For this particular swap the guidelines were to make Spring-inspired tags and to use the colors that were shown in the swap button.

Part of the fun of receiving the swaps is the beautiful and creative way that the girls package them up.

Here they all are, each one different but so beautiful!

The tags were made by Julie Weller, Jeanine Weiss, Mariasela Vallejo,  Michelle Duke, Tashia Jacques, Teah Barrow, Sherry Bamsey and me.

This is my tag. I created the balloon with the Cricut Victorian Romance cartridge, a piece of vintage doily, white pom poms, paper flowers from Prima Marketing and of course, some beautiful On the Edge Rumple Ribbon in “Icy Sky” from Lovebug Creations.

Some people have asked me how to join a swap. The best way is to host your own and make the announcement on your Facebook page. But, if you aren’t ready to jump into the Hostess seat, I recently found out about a great place to join other swappers, Swap-Bot. “On Swap-bot, you can host swaps, join swaps, and chat with other swappers from all over the world.”

Thanks for visiting and let me know if you sign up to join a swap on Swap Bot!
