Fall Banner Swap

This time next week Summer will be over and Autumn begins. I just love the SVG Cuts ATC Swaps, it’s so fun to get one in your mailbox. I was trying to figure what else we could swap and thought why not a banner?

I asked some fellow swappers if they would be interested in testing this out. I cut the banner shapes and letters and sent them out to Elizabeth, Deb and Brigit. They each created 4 of their letter, kept one for themselves and sent the other three to the other swappers Once all the mailing was done here is our end result:

Elizabeth created the F. Love the velvet accents and the leaf is a great cut.

I created the A banner. I used the tree from the Fall Harvest SVG Kit. and the bushel basket is from Harvest Hill Farm SVG Collection. 

Deb from Deb’s Crafty Side created the first L. 
Her burlap accents and other cuts are so pretty.

Brigit (fellow SVG Cuts DT Member) from Brigit Scraps created the second L.
Her leaf frame and accent is so pretty - photo does not do it justice - has a little sparkle to it and looks like water colors.

So this swap was a success and I think I may offer up a “NOEL” swap on the SVG Cuts forum. If there are several groups I may send out an SVG of a banner shape and the letters along with a color palette to follow. What do you think? Sound fun?

Now that fall is approaching so is Halloween. Have you seen the latest challenge on the SVG Cuts FB Page? Halloween theme with 1st place prize of a Sizzix eclips! Go check it out!
