Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip Swaps using Playful Palette

Happy Day here today! It’s a Bank Holiday in the UK and my boys are off school for a week! We have lots of fun things planned this week and I can’t wait! Think walks on the beach, trip to the zoo, picnics at the skatepark and visit to the cinema! Now that the boys are all older, their likes are all semi aligned. I reckon in a couple of years they will be wanting to do totally different things, but for now, I shall enjoy it while I can!

But today I’m sharing with you the swap that I took with me on the Incentive Trip. I somehow managed to sign up to do both a card swap and a 3D project too. Not sure how that happened, but in for penny, in for a pound!

I did stress a little bit about it at first, but then decided that I needed to make a 3D swap that was very much me, and something that I make/use a lot. Hence these little bags, and also the opening paragraph about my boys. I love to surprise them with little gifts and treats. They sometimes come home from school to find an exciting something on their beds. It might only be a couple of penny chews, but I love it and they do too.

So this project is one that I’ve made over and over again. Except it’s in brand new paper, Playful Palette, that goes live on Wednesday.

It’s a peculiar paper to look at when you first see it, but once I got it out and was properly working with it, I’ve fallen in love. You know me, if I like 50% of the patterns on a paper, then I’ll buy it!

So I hope you like my showcase here for you of all the new goodies!
