At my team meeting recently, we had a 2020-21 Annual catalog Shoe Box Swap with each person designing a card that all got to make.  This is always one of my favorite team meetings, held with the release of each new catalog.  It is one of the few times a year where I get to make cards that I don’t design, which is always sweet!.  Didn’t they do a great job?!  You will probably see something here that you totally missed in the new catalog and a few others to get some terrific ideas from.  Enjoy the variety.

This kite fun fold card was designed by Suzan, how “fly” is it!

This card by designed by Becky using the gorgeous Peony Garden Designer Series Paper and the Posted For You Bundle, so very pretty!  and did you notice she even layered the ribbons?  Also, the gray DSP has been run through using an embossing folder, too.

This lovely came from Rita using the fabulous Forever Gold Laser-cut paper, combined with the Forever Greenery DSP and one of the embossing folders in the suite, too.  And you know how I feel about gold and texture!

This beauty came from Vicki with great texture using the Old World Embossing Folder in the background and other great elements.  She even stamped the background paper so it looks like DSP along with more of the lovely gold accents.

This was my technique card to have the team members try something new.  This was made using the Scrappy Strip technique, fun and a great way to use up some of those scraps lying about.  I also used the Forever Greenery DSP and the Gold Laser-cut Gold Paper.

I hope you enjoyed this nice variety of cards by some of my team members for one of our Shoe Box Swaps.
