Make the altered items sturdy and suitable to give as a gift. I will keep one of yours and send three others back to you. I will try to honor requests but can not promise a particular in return.

If you join this group keep in mind that the items that you receive back may be heavier or bulkier than what you send so it will be necessary to add additional return postage or consider a flat rate box.

NEW: Praise Swappers Challenge
 
CLOSED TO NEW PLAYERS JULY 12

: Praise Swapper Challenge: One for One Swap
Limit one spot per person.

Create a 5 x 7 embellished page which will be suitable for framing or hanging without a frame.

Here's what a couple look like:
ON CANVAS:

Rejoice in the Lord


Those who Hope


READY TO FRAME:
Bring Your own Sunshine

This Moment

The theme of the challenge is a verse of the bible selected by the previous SCS swapper from the list shown.

Who ever signs up for spot two will receive the challenge of creating a one of a kind project for ME and will select and post a verse for the next person who signs up for spotand on it will go.

I will close this on July 7 and create the project for the person who signs up last.

Additional Details: If you select to participate:

Since this is a one for one swap commitment! Do not sign up if you can not keep your promise to create a work of art for one other.

Print the verse using a quality printer, stickers or die cut letters. Please pick a font that can be read readily.

Create a sturdy piece. A layer of cardstock and chipboard or an artists canvas is appropriate as a base.

NO frame needed.

Embellish your artwork and pay attention to neatness and detail.

If you have questions please ask! It's a new idea for me so I may need to rephrase the info for clarification.

1. Mrslaporte's Challenge Verse:
1 Corinthians 13: 4-7 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

ladylovestostamp 06-10-2012 04:35 PM

I'd like one spot in the 6x6 devotional and a spot in the challenge - my verse Joshua 24:15...as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

morgainegeiser 06-10-2012 04:42 PM

I will take one spot in the altered items and one in the challenge. My verse is: “But now, O Lord, You are our Father; we are the clay, and You our potter; and all we are the work of Your hand.” (Isaiah 64:8 )

AuntKimi 06-10-2012 06:42 PM

Subbing for now - starting school soon and not sure I will have enough time to do the challenge.....

seanryan6 06-11-2012 04:20 AM

subbing for now---but as Arnold said: I will be back....:)

StampinGoodDeeds 06-11-2012 05:54 AM

Hi Marilyn!
You know I am in, and I love the categories!
I want one spot in each of the 3 devotionals, two spots in the children's cards please (or you can sign me up for one for now and when we get enough committed, I'll take a second if you prefer that -- either way!), a spot in the altered items, and I will want a spot in the challenge but I have to think about which verse I want so will be back to tell you that and sign up then. :)

scrappinmama72inpa 06-11-2012 08:54 AM

Hi Marilyn, you know I am in. I am loving the fact that I am going to be able to put together a devotional book with other people's crafty ideas. I am hoping it gives me motivation to look at it daily. :)

Please sign me up for 3 spots in 3x5 devotionals, 3 spots in 6x6 devotionals, 2 spots in the children's cards and a spot in the challenge.

Thanks so much.

klb1082 06-11-2012 04:10 PM

Please put me down for 2 spots in the 3x5 index cards category. I just love these - making and receiving them! :)

mrslaporte 06-11-2012 06:55 PM

Emily, I am so glad to see your enthusiasm.

I'm glad you have found this swap to be a part of. I will caution you that I will probably not have 15 different 3 x 5 cards to send back to you, or 9 different 6 x 6 devotionals to send you, or six different cards to return.. perhaps you can wait to create your third spots once we have enough for a the needed set of returns.

I hope that makes sense... I just can't angel that many spots if we don't have the participants.

mrslaporte 06-11-2012 07:01 PM

Well, I had a busy day and I'm just now winding down for the night. I think I have the lists updated.
Susan (stampinGoodDeeds) and Emily (scrappinmama72inpa) when you post your verse I'll add you to the challenge category.

mrslaporte 06-12-2012 01:47 PM

Good afternoon swappers. :) It's a good day to be alive.

scrappinmama72inpa 06-12-2012 03:07 PM

Marilyn, I will take Jeremiah 29:11 for the challenge. And I will just keep an eye on the sign ups to see if we have enough people. Thanks.

I am glad you are taking on the swappers challenge. I'll mark this down. Is there a particular translation that you wish me to quote?

ladylovestostamp 06-12-2012 05:57 PM

Oh Marilyn - I love your new verse - so many ideas already churning in my head :) If I can finish up some of my other swaps I may be able to participate in the altered items as well. Will have to let you know later.

Okie dokie. DH also has a set at work of these, so I can always give him an extras, duplicates or whatever. :)

StampinGoodDeeds 06-13-2012 08:26 AM

Hi Marilyn!
I'm back. :) Okay, for the Challenge Category: I would like Psalm 28:7 please:
The Lord if my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him in song.

Also, I'll go ahead and take another spot in each of the 6x6 and the 3x5 so as to help those who want to do more too!

Would it help to move the due date out another month to get more folks?

Great verse Susan! I love it!

I'm going to leave the due date for the moment. Two months out is going to be alright.

mrslaporte 06-14-2012 03:41 AM

I've been watching joycemeyer in the morning. Anyone else watch her?

Have a blessed day!

StampinGoodDeeds 06-14-2012 05:27 AM

Hi Marilyn -- Be sure to add my extra spots in the 6x6 and 3x5 please!

I only catch Joyce once in a rare while. My sister loves to read her and listen to her. I prefer David Jeremiah, Charles Stanley, Day of Discovery, and the "Jewish Jesus!" I also enjoy Ravi Zaccharias.

cupojafa 06-14-2012 09:34 AM

I'll take an altered item spot and 2 6x6 spots please!

cupojafa 06-14-2012 09:40 AM

Okay...I like the swappers challenge idea..is that to be done on canvas? or would you want it on cardstock so it can be framed later? The examples you have look like canvas.

Jen, I believe it would be successful on canvas or I think very sturdy cardstock or cardstock mounted to chipboard would work too. Wanna play? It's a one for one.. You make one and receive one. :)

cupojafa 06-15-2012 05:59 AM

I'll play in the Swapper challenge! My verse will be: 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18 Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
