Are All My Scrap Swappers Ready????

The last swap went so well...I am excited to do another. We are still waiting for Amber's things that are somewhere in the you all should have 2 more cards coming!

Drum roll please....I have the next four months planned out-yea!!! Okay, here are the stipulations for participation:
1-You must have your stuff to me by the 1st Saturday of each month. I will get you things back to you no later than the 2nd Saturday of each month.
2-If you are not able to participate for a month you must let me know 1 month in advance.
3-All items must be high quality. They can be handmade or bought, but please make sure they are acid free, and made of high quality products. In other words...please put time and thought into what you send out, make sure it is something that you would want to use. (Everyone did great with this last month!)
4-You need to send a check for shipping your items back to you....made out to me.
5-Please follow the theme each month, be creative with it, ask if you have any questions, and make sure your items will ship well and in a cost effective manner.
So far for swappers I have:

May: Woodland Creatures!!!
******Seriously I am so excited for this one, there are tons of great things out there right now!!! Think: Deer, Skunks, Beavers, Mushrooms, Squirrels, Rabbits, Mice, Ect. Please have at least 1 embellishment item per person...I believe it should be 9 people this month including yourself!

Anything summery goes on this one!! Please have at least 1 embellishment item per person...I believe it should be 9 people this month including yourself!

August: Every One's In Page Swap!!
*******This is a theme of your choice, however, you will be making page layout for everyone (9 people total-including you). We will only do this a couple times a year for every person so please make it creative and high quality. If you need ideas go to,, or any of the people under my inspirational blogs on my personal blog page I chose to do this in the summer so you have lots of options (back to school, vacation, camping, summertime, swimming, ect), and so that we will all have time to get them done (and time to save for those of us on a monthly budget)!! Here are the stipulations:
1-This will be a 2 page layout
2-You must use each of the following (this is to ensure that each person's product is the same and based on what fundamental pieces make a good layout), but you can use more if you would like:
---high quality card stock
---pattern paper (doesn't have to be a whole piece)
---1 embellishment
---1 title
---1 journaling spot
---photomats (as many of as few as your design calls for-typically you make them in a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2, 4 1/2 x 6 1/2, 3 1/2 x 5 1/2, 2 1/2 x 2 1/2, ect. Whatever the photo size you just add 1/4 inch to each side-making it 1/2 inch total for each measurement {length x width}).

Also for any of you who would like to post what you have made with your birds, please e-mail them to me with any comments you would like posted at and I will post them here for all of us to see (I know I talked about another blog....but what do you all think?)!! Happy creating to you all!!! Call me with any questions!!!!!! I can't wait to see what you have created with your birds (we all got such great stuff!!!), and what you will create for our upcoming months (Feel free to send me sneak peeks to post as well if you would like)!!!
