Vintage Collage Swap

I decided to host another collage swap with my swap friends. Here's a photo of what each person got and the idea is to choose 3 items and make a card, postcard, ATC or arch for their partner. Some people are making extra because there's so much to choose from and it's so much fun! I was going to put in just a few things this time so all the swap items were more likely to match, but it was too much fun to keep adding to the envelopes I was making. Can you believe almost all this stuff was stitting on my desk getting in the way!? I should do about 50 more swaps and then maybe my desk will be clean, LOL!

Anyways—here's what the swap contained:
Club Scrap Faux Postage Sheet
Pins that have tiny buttons on the end
Vintage wallpaper from the 50's (pulled straight off the wall of my dear Great-Aunt's house as a rememberence)
Prints of some vintage sailor photos (each swapper got a different set)
CTMH Paper Lace
Pearl Brad
Antiqued Copper Brads and Eyelets
Yellow Fleur de Lis Brad
Vintage address book page
Square Scalloped punch out
Oval Scalloped acrylic sticker
7-Gypsies Aged Label (each swapper got a different one)
Some Club Scrap cardstock
Some pretty patterened paper

Do you think that's enough to choose from? What would you choose to make something with? I'm having trouble choosing from making a masculine or feminine vintage item. Maybe I should do both—I am really thinking I need to make arches since I never get to do those. Oh—it's fun having choices!

I will update with links to everyone's final product as they come in.

Here's Jan's Arch

Penny's (items #1 & 5)

Dear Swap Mistress, I forgot to take a photo of Jim Dandy before I mailed him out - could you do the honors and send an e-copy to me? Thanks!
