First Swarm project.

We held our first Swarm last Saturday and it was a great success..thanks to all the ladies who came and extra special thanks to Jennie (The Boss!) who stayed and helped. We will definately be doing it again! This is the project that each of the ladies were given to either make at the Swarm or take home. It's a little wall hanging (although one lady decided to put hers on the front of a card (nice one Angie!) I'm all for people taking an idea and running with it...if it turns out very different to the original..great!!! I used just 2 carts for this one. I cut the larger shape in white card and gold card which were adhered together (the white card adds stability) then cut the same shape 1/2" smaller in patterned paper and adhered it to the gold card. The sleigh was cut from gold then red card (the runners were cut from the red portion), and the decorative swirl was the shift section of the sleigh. They were adhered together then a gold bow & poinsetta added. The 'Season's Greetings' was cut from red card with a gold shadow then adhered above the sleigh. Two holes were punched in the top of the shape with a Cropodile then gold cord was threaded through from the front & knotted at the back. For any of the ladies who for one reason or another couldn't attend the Swarm there are some packs still available at Jendenink to buy.
Carts used:
Lozenge shape- Accent Essentials
Sleigh & sentiment- Christmas (Noel) Solutions
Thanks for looking...and thanks again to all the ladies who attended- you made it a great day!!!
