 It's time for another Holiday Square Swap home decor project..

Valentine Square Swap!

My Luv 2 Stamp Group participates in a swap around each holiday time, and we each make a square using Stampin' Up! products. 

I used an 8x10 white wood frame and a background of printed heart paper from the More Amore Designer Series Specialty package of paper (pg 10, or here online)

Valentine square swap frame

I decorated the corner of the frame with a piece of 1-1/4" Two Tone Pink Pirouette ribbon (pg 13 Spring catalog, #129294) and some lace trim from the Artisan Embellishment kit (pg 10, #129328).

The LOVE tickets are also from the Artisan Embellishment kit (noted above)

The cute heart clip is found on pg 28 in the Elements Cute Clips package (#129939)

Valentine square swap 4

You'll notice that almost 1/2 the squares feature the cute little HEART shape from the Hearts a Flutter stamp and framelit die cut - find them on pg 11 in the Spring Catalog, or HERE ONLINE

Christmas square collage 1

For my 7" x 14" frame above (under $3 at walmart!), I used pieces from the Merry Moments Simply Scrappin' kit (pg 9 Holiday catalog, #126911), and repurposed a tag that Cindee gave me on a package!! :)

For the 10" square frame above, i tried to make it look like a Christmas Tree.

I got the idea from Deb Rought who did a similar idea with her squares.

 Below are the squares from the gals in my group who participated.. didn''t they do an awesome job??

You can click to enlarge any of them.

--------------------------------

When I was at the Founder's Circle Retreat in September, I saw my friend Penny making about 30 cute little Christmas Squares... I asked her what she was doing.. she explained that her group does a "square swap" each season (or almost monthly) and they use the cute squares for frames, collages, cards, etc., .. so I thought .. WHAT A FAB IDEA!!

I came home and took sign ups from my Luv 2 Stamp Group for a Halloween Square swap, and the rules were that the largest piece had to be either a 1-3/8" Stampin' Up! square punch (#119877) or a Stampin' Up! Scallop Square punch (#119884) .. we had 20 participate, and here is what I did with my squares:

Halloween square swap frame 1

Above: this frame is about 9" square (8" square opening) and I layered Tangerine Tango cardstock, a piece of Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP (#126906), and then a piece of Very Vanilla on top. I die cut a Labels Collection Framelit (#125598) and stamped Happy Halloween (from the hostess set on pg 204) and added a piece of 1/2" Striped Satin Ribbon (#127837, pg 26 Holiday catalog).

Below: this frame measures about 7" x 12" and was only $3 at Walmart!!
