New Swap


Okay ladies...we will be starting a new swap. There will be 4 page kits due this year. I need them to be turned in on time-every time, please. They are due to me by the third Saturday of every month. I will divvy them out the following week. I ahve tried to make all of the themes available so that if you know you will have a conflict your pages can be completed early. However, if you are no longer able to participate (I know emergencies happen) I will need an advanced notice of two months in courtesy of all other participants-so we can try to find a replacement. We have the following swappers-14 total including yourself:

Amber
Aislinn
Nicholya
Hetty
Stephanie
Amber Hooten
Jerrica
Kira
DeDe
LesLee
Liz
Kristina
Tracy
Sheena

***April 17th:
Choices for page themes are: 1) Love
2) Spring
3) Mother
4) Easter/Lucky (St. Patricks)

***June 19th:
Choices for page themes are: 1) Summer
2) Father
3) 4th of July
4) Birthday

***September 18th:
Choices for page themes are: 1) Back to school
2) Fall
3) Thanksgiving/Halloween
4) Family

***December 18th:
Choices for page themes are: 1) Winter
2) Christmas
3) New Years/Year in Review/Resolutions
4) Baby/Little Boy or Girl

The page kits need to be in a container of some sort (ziploc, page protector, kit bag, ect.) and need to include (please follow this so that everyone receives back what they put into it and the swap remains fair):
-2 pieces of good quality cardstock/very thick patterned paper (ie: Cosmo Cricket, American Crafts, ect) for background
-Patterned paper/cardstock accent (if cardstock is used for background accent will be patterned)-nothing less than a 6 x 12 inch total combined
-1 large embellishment & several smaller ones (ie. a large flower and a few buttons, ect)
-Title (ie. can be cut out with cricut/silhouette, or stamped, ect)
-Journaling spot/card
-Ribbon 12 inch minimum
-Photo showing kit layout
-Photo-mats (these are easiest to show photo placement, however they can be swapped out for an additional embellishment-but you must provide a photo showing the finished layout with photo placement and a list of photo sizes)
*** see photo above for an example

Please post on here what you will be doing each time so that we know that we will have an assortment, and not all of one theme.
You don't need to assemble the page...just put in all the items they need to complete the page along with a photo and the swapper receiving it will put it together.

Liz, I am going to do mine on Easter.

Aislinn said...

Quick question: we dont assemble everything right? We just cut everything, ink edges, and put in the ziplock bag -- or am I on crack?

Just Us said...

Shanoa will be doing Easter.
Aislinn...you are not on crack silly girl. You just put everything in the kit that we need and we will put it together-just like what you buy at Kellie's.
