This is a 4x6 layout.  You guessed it, for a swap.  I used the heart stamp from Because of You to make the flower.  Here's a close up of the flower:
This layout is for the second spot.  I used the birds from What Matters Most and the cattails from Where You Should Be.  Here's a close up of the tag:

I am in a monthly card kit swap (on SCS) and May is my month to be hostess.  I have to send a set of 6 (all the same) images and 6 pieces of patterned paper (4x6) to the ladies in my group and they create a card (actually it's 6 identical cards) and send it to everyone in the group.  I can't take credit for this layout, one of the ladies in my blogging group made this card (click to visit), and I thought it was the cutest!  So this is my version using the stamp from What Matters Most.  The sentiment is from Because of You.
Stamps: Because of You, What Matters Most
Ink: Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black
Paper: KI Memories-Colorful Disco Fever, DCWV - Sky Paper
Misc: Bic and Sharpie Permanent Markers, scrap ribbon, paper piercer

HAPPY H{IPPITY} HOP MONDAY!! - April 12, 2010

This week a made a postage holder.  As you may have figured out by now, I LOVE swaps.  When you send your items to the hostess you also have to include postage for the "swapped" items to return to you.  A fellow swapper had the idea to make the holder pretty to serve as a gift to the hostess.  I must say, I love this idea.
Stamps:  Regal Greetings
Ink:  Gold Embossing Powder
Paper:  American Crafts Black Cardstock, DSP- something I had on hand
Misc: 7 Gypsies Velvet flowers, 10mm Bazzill brads, pocket and tag were made from Cricut cart - Tags, Boxes, and More, Marvy corner punch
Here are some close-ups:
