Heart CLOSED and Wrapped Up!! ALTOID TIN DIORAMA SWAP *Due Sept 13* Partners Swap!!

ALTOID TIN DIARAMA

I blame this one on Pinterest and Facebook! I saw some amazing designs for Diorama tins and honestly couldn't resist making this into a swap!! Not sure what a Diorama is....here's is what the free dictionary says: '1. A three-dimensional miniature or life-size scene in which figures, stuffed wildlife, or other objects are arranged in a naturalistic setting against a painted background.' or perhaps a photo is a better way to imagine this--see at bottom of post!!

Are you getting ideas here or does this scare the pants off of ya?? If you're brave enough to venture forward, I guarantee you will not be disappointed!!


DEETS:
1. First off this will be a one on one partner swap. I just feel this is going to need extra special attention and I don't want anyone to rush or not use their best ideas!

Still sure you want to go ahead.....ok...keep reading....

2. This is going to be SENDER's choice. Now let me clarify...I will have a questionnaire for the RECIPIENT of said diorama to fill out. The SENDER will at their option create what they can from what you offer. Say your favorite colors or a favorite theme...I will try to pair everyone up based on same likes! A general rule of thumb here is NOT to expect ..this is an interpretation of what the SENDER felt based on what you answered! I've been in one on one swaps and trying to create something for someone you don't know is extremely difficult so this will give more freedom and hopefully a beautiful creation that will be well loved and appreciated!!

Fearful yet??....hmmm.....maybe the next part will make you stop....

3. I put "Altoid" Tin up there...well this is open to interpretation as well. If you have a tin that would work perfect for this, then use it! If you have a small tin and a large tin and would like to use both of them by layering then by all means do so...I'm not going to put any requirements on this except that it MUST be a tin of some sort.

Ok...it's been pretty easy till now....are you really ready for the requirements?? You sure??.....ok....read on.....

4. Since this is a Diorama you must make the inside 3-D. If you want to add more on the outside fine. IF you want to pull off the lid and use that somewhere fine. Just make the inside of the tin 3-D meaning layers! Lots of Layers!!

Did I not scare you there?? You're still ready to keep reading and sign-up?? ......

5. With layers being repeated...do I need to add--- please use embellishments! Bling, buttons, fibers, ribbon, stickers, sequins, lace, do I need to say more...if it's chunky and able to be 3-D then add it!

Ok...this will be the doosey...I just know it!!!

6. Oh did I mention...you won't know who is making you one...well I'll know...but that's it! I want this to be extra special and a pleasant surprise! With that being said, all rules apply...if you fail to check in, send or communicate you will be reported to a mod...If something happens and you need to drop, let me know...I don't mind angel'ing or finding an angel. Please try to give as much notice as possible! If you are dropping out on the last week of the swap that's not fair to your partner so PLEASE be respectful and plan in advance!!

Really...I can't scare you away from this swap?!? You really are a die-hard....Ok...then here's your homework.....

7. RESEARCH--yes you heard right....check out pinterest, google, bing, ect...there are TONS and I do mean TONS of ideas to get you motivated to create a beautiful Diorama!!

Still there??? Well this next part will get you....I just know it!!!

8. DO NOT wait till the last 2 weeks to work on your Diorama....Really-- did I need to say that?? Yes! Don't make your parnter wait for you! Be prompt and be on time!

No..you're still reading this!! You want to know all the details....ok.....

9. No vendor requirements, but make something you would be willing to use or would give as a gift to someone

This will stop you...I just know it!!!

10. Shipping--I have International Swappers who sign up for my swaps...if you'd prefer not to send outside the USA just put USA when you sign up and I'll make sure to keep you in the states. No need to put anything if you'll send anywhere Please be forwarned that this is not a swap where the tin will cost you $2.35 to ship. I want you to really make this 3-D so shipping in a box is required!

Wow you really are a die-hard swapper.....ok here comes the last bits.....

11. Sign-ups will run till July 26th. I'll partner everyone up when I get enough players (at least 10). As I said before I'll try to partner you up based on likes and preferences. I'll partner as we go after the 10. If you see a certain someone you'd like to be partnered too, please feel free to send me a PM and I'll make it happen!

12. One last thing...you don't need to send anything but the Diorama to your partner. You can if you want send goodies, but it is not a requirement in this swap. The main focus of this swap is the detail on the Diorama.

As Always Newbies and International swappers are always welcome!! We all have to start somewhere right!?!

When you sign up PM me your addie....I might already have it, but this is to double check what I have in my file.

Who is brave enough to take on this challenge???

I'm disclosing who partners are since we are past the due date!!
Red means received!!

1. Mauiueno--to jabauer--Received
2. Jessicatae--to KONeill (KONeill dropped)
3. Jn_leger--dropped--- her partner was Vickie Y

I'm scared.....
I'm very, very scared....

I'm going to lurk for a while. This is WAY, WAY out of my comfort zone (it's a small zone anyway).

Peggie, you never cease to amaze me with your ideas, enthusiasm and energy!

Since it looks like I won't have most of my supplies available until early September, going to have to pass on this swap for now. Great idea though!

She's all moved; unpacked a different story. We just ended a heatwave here in the West and I think the day she moved she said it was 107. Here in California, SF Bay area we are supposed to be 20 degrees cooler...yeah our fog layer is back!!! I've been melting for the last week. So I'm sure where she is in Nevada she's getting some cooler temps too. I'm sure she will be checking in soon.

Kim
Thanks for the update on Peggie....even though I'm about a week late in reading it.

We've had a few very hot days (in the 90's) for Oregon. I hate hot, hot weather and I don't care what the humidity is, when it's hot, it's hot! I'm going to Salt Lake City next week for the annual Stampin' Up! Convention. It's going to be in the 90's to maybe over 100. Yuck. However, I do like to watch the thunderstorms.

Peggie...
Are you talkin' to ME??????
You are really, really, really asking me to step out of my ZONE!

........ OK. I'll JUST DO IT!
If no one else has signed up for #10 spot, I'm you woman.
Thank goodness we have till September to do these. I actually have a good idea but won't know if it fits with my person until later.

and anything else you'd like to add: I love animals of all kinds, especially my cats. I am retired. I love working in my yard, planting flowers & watching them grow. I do lots of kinds of paper crafts and I make cards to send to our troops in Afghanistan so they have something nice to send home.

Gosh, I hope I haven't totally confused someone! You can always ask me through Peggie if you need clarification.

Yay! Got my partner! Now I can really finalize what I am thinking of.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. Here in Alabama we have had a lot of rain but the last 2-3 days no rain, sunny, and hot but not as hot as it usually is in July!
