Project's of the day - Unders Swap

I have so many wonderful projects to show you from our Scramping Retreat this past weekend! The projects below are from our Unders Swap. What is an Unders Swap you ask? You may have participated in one of these swaps before maybe at Christmas time and basically it is a swap where you can open a gift or go steal one from someone who has already opened a gift. Really fun!

The "Unders" part comes in play when we the projects to cost "under" $10.00 to make, and take you "under" 2 hours to create. You also were required to have a stamped image somewhere on the project even if it was just a stamped tag. This is a stamping retreat after all!

The gifts below are all so wonderful and I know a few took more than 2 hours to create, but I won't mention names!!
Erin made this apron and I want one too! Her gift came in this cute box that has a stamped image cleverly adhered inside.

This is Mimi's bag that reads "pick me" (LOVE that!)
Here is her card organizer that was filled with the cutest cards. I am going to show you all the cards here tomorrow.

Dana made this cute box that holds an array of wonderful tea. I was the proud recipient of this gift. (Thanks Dana I love it!!)

Jan stamped up the insert for this great travel mug. Notice the cute acorn bells.

Norma made a decorated tin that contained these magnetic memo boards. The one featured here she decorated using paper napkins, and that little gold sun is a magnet!

Here is another decorated tin and magnetic memo boards created by Lynn. I think I "need" some of these memo boards don't you?

Yours truly made this gift of a mini canvas and easel with a cute owl on it with matching card, and then the towels inside the box have the cutest owls embroidered on them (a score from Joann's!).
A great chipboard album made by Judy. Judy showed us her album like this that she uses to keep track of all of her stamping supplies including ink pads, dies, Copics, etc....
Kay painted and stamped this cute pot (she is the Stickle Queen) that she filled with everything to pamper yourself including scrubbies, incense and such.

Pam made these pretty cork trivets. Aren't they great? I used these in my kitchen all the time and had not even thought of stamping on them.
Thank you to all who participated in the swap... it was so much fun and what great inspirational idea's we all got from it!
