Closed and POstal!! *Make It a Mini-Album Using Junk Swap* Due May 3rd 2013
 
Make It A Mini-Album Using Junk Swap

It's that time for another mini album swap using things you would normally thow away. I've been hoarding coffee sleeves, toilet paper rolls and tea packets. What have you been hoarding in your stash till you could get that creative kick to make something with it??

Quantity: 4 (3+1 for the hostess)
Due Date: May 3rd

Deets: There will be no size requirements or vendor requirements. Feel free to make a mini album any size you'd like! No minimum number of pages since your item could be very tiny and only hold a few pages or thick and hold many pages. You can bind them with ribbon, twine, binder rings, ect. You can use a coffee sleeve on the outside and cardstock on the inside. The possibilities are endless! I'll put some examples here for creative inspiration!

Themes are optional

Try to make all 4 albums as close to the same as possible. You are welcome to take more than 1 spot but please make a diffent kind of album for each spot you take.

I'll keep a running list. I LOVE posting pics and as the albums come in I'll post them. You are welcome to take "DIBS" or make a request for any album that you fancy! Just post on the thread or PM me and let me know! This way you can get something you'll love based on YOUR tastes and not just mine :)
No Vendor Requirements--but make something you would love to give and receive.

Canada and International swappers are always welcome in my swaps!!

When you're ready to mail: Place your items in a ziplock bag with your name and SCS name. Make sure to take credit for your creation by including a post it or some sort of label with your items.You are welcome to send in cash, stamps, or send money via paypal for return postage (just pm me for my email addie for paypal). I print labels offline for those who send cash or paypal and it comes with delivery confirmation. If you send in stamps, include as much postage as it took for you to send plus a few extra stamps. I'll return anything that's not used. I always try to reuse any envelopes/boxes that I can

YaY!!!! So I have to ask, is it a large brew house? What type of beer does he specialize in? I don't drink beer, have considered some beer batter recipes, I see sooo many cool brands when at the grocery store!

I would like 2 spots do you have any links for ideas as to what these look like I have never done a mini one before.
Thanks

jn_leger 02-10-2013 10:35 AM

Our school is undergoing major construction this summer and everyone has to pack up their entire classroom and move the contents to the gym for storage. A nightmare for some of us! Anyway, a few teachers have already started sorting and purging and since our school is old, there are some outdated materials up for grabs that nobody wants. Nobody except me! One man's trash....LOL! So, I will be using these discarded items for my mini album. I have already picked up some old bingo cards and markers, library cards and pockets, old books, and flash cards. Everyday there is a ton of paper and cardboard packaging that goes into the recycle bins, so I will be using some of that too! Now all I need is a theme. What does everyone use their minis for? You kids, family, hubby, pets, you? Help me out with a theme will ya? Thanks!!! :D

nsmac1 02-10-2013 10:46 AM

Travel, day trips, holidays, pets, hubby & me, family, to name a few. So jealous about all your goodies. I was looking for a library card stamp but can't find any. Saw some cards at a store when I was in Halifax but it was $5 for not very many cards so I was like heck no.

mkfrances 02-10-2013 03:30 PM

I would love to join your swap (I want to do a file folder mini album, if that is ok)!
Thanks,
Marcia

babygoofus 02-10-2013 03:45 PM

and AGAIN you got me Peggie!!!! Put me down for a spot please.

mauiueno 02-10-2013 03:56 PM

File folder mini album - gotta see this - I love file folders!

artisticsole 02-10-2013 03:58 PM

YaY!!! Robin, Marcia, and Jennifer are here!!!

I sooo agree Robin, Nicole is one lucky duck!!

Marcia--you sure can use file folders!

Jennifer--I know, I know....but isn't it fun to get creative!!! :)

shereel 02-10-2013 04:00 PM

I'm in for 2 spots. I just last night picked up an album I did and thought I should make more of these.

mkfrances 02-10-2013 04:42 PM

I hope everyone will like my file folder mini (I got the idea from a close to my heart demo). But now I need a second spot after checking out the links!!! I love that playing card mini, and want to do that, too! My "vision" is to use the hearts cards like in the video, but use masculine papers, etc so it could be used for father's day or a boy's birthday!

I think we could clean that school out in a hurry LMAO

jn_leger 02-10-2013 06:10 PM

Looks like I will need to open a store! LOL! I am also sure that everyone would love help packing up their classrooms!!! I will make sure to include some extras for those of you who get my minis!

mauiueno 02-10-2013 06:17 PM

A store would be wonderful!

It is a full tasting bar with six taps and a bottle shop with thousands of beers....All craft beer, no bud light here... and they are from all over the US and a whole wall of international beers... I do not love beer myself either, and I pick them based on how pretty their label is:) Our manager is always cutting the cases out becasue he loves the images and colors, he wants to make a wall collage with them, and his pile is getting quite tall, I think he will never notice if I slip some out to make mini albums:)

mauiueno 02-10-2013 10:20 PM

So I played around with a tp roll mini - shall continue with it tomorrow. This is so much fun!

CherryLime 02-11-2013 11:40 AM

I think I will need a second spot.....for sure!

nessmom 02-11-2013 01:13 PM

I'd like to have 1 spot please!

mauiueno 02-11-2013 01:56 PM

My DH just said that I was too easy! After 30 years of marriage! Anyway, I was explaining how I was going to work on my card making skills since I seem to be collecting and not using stamps......and the Peggie comes up with this amazing idea! And the rest of course is history.

I had purchased three lovely floral file folders a year or so ago and just had to play with one today for this swap - OMG!! I am loving how it is turning out. Not as intricate as those on you tube, but still!

She is super good at amazing ideas

jn_leger 02-11-2013 05:10 PM

Okay, after some feedback from you lovely ladies and looking at my stash, I have decided to go with the theme "Family Memories" and will make my minis using bingo cards and flashcards as the base of the pages. They will also contain lots of other recycled school supply goodies!

shereel 02-11-2013 07:31 PM

One of my set is a recycled project from a recycled project from the art classes at school. They made drawing books from recycled art projects and posters. Now 1/2 the kids are not in art so I'm using the books they made and bound and upcycling them into albumns.
