A Little Country Chair 1 x 1 Charm Swap

The Little Country Chair

There isn't anything you can't do in a 1 x 1 square, you just have to think outside of the box.

Last month I joined a 1 x 1 Charm Swap that Carol McFarland put together via Stampin Connect and I can't wait to get mine back. The only thing is I forgot to put return postage on my package and now have to send stamps so I can get my package returned LOL. This just shows you what kind of week I have had.

I named my swap "A Little Country Chair". I love stamps that are different anything with chairs, benches and stools I have. I am not sure exactly why but when I first saw "Have a Seat" in the 2010-11 IDEA BOOK & CATALOGUE I had to get it. I love the uniqueness of it, and the fact that you can add little things like a bird or a cup of tea on it or even a flower makes it so cute. To me a chair is always inviting, and there is so many things you can do with it. You can rest in it, read in it, hold a cup of tea on it. You can use it for storage, to hold a door open, you can stand on it to get something up high or put two together and make fort with it.

For this little piece of art I used the following:
  1. Have a Seat Stamp Set
  2. Charming Stamp Set
  3. Very Vanilla Card stock
  4. Vellum Card stock
  5. Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink
  6. Chocolate Chip Classic Ink
  7. Eyelets Antique Brass
  8. Basic Rhinestones
  9. Linen Thread
  10. Heart Small
  11. Vintage Wallpaper
  12. Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink Illuminate Top Coat
1 x 1 Charm with chain with the insert inside plus the packaging that I did for each one. Each charm is held onto the background using clear photo corners so that it can be removed easily without ripping.
