Default WA - BC …. 8th Annual Shoebox Swap

8th Annual Shoebox Swap
for NW Washington and Lower BC
(or for anyone beyond those borders who just loves to play with stamps)


Date... Saturday, October 4
Time... 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
9:30 - 9:45 = arrival and coffee
9:45 we start crafting


Place... Laurel Church (just north of Bellingham, WA)
Registration fee... $10 ($5 for the church and $5 for the fun stuff)


Prize for the favorite project!!!

Here’s the Plan...
Design a card (or other project... ornament, box, bag, etc)
Create 2 completed cards (1 to display with your kits and 1 to display for voting)
Create 20 kits of your card. Put the kits in a shoebox or small basket
Each project/shoebox will be set at a marked space
All swappers will move from project to project. (Some people will finish faster than others, but there is plenty of space to work side by side when needed. Each of us will go home with 19 new projects.)

Default What to do

Preparation:
* Design and create your card or other item.
* Assemble 2 finished examples — one for the working table and one for the "vote here" table.
* Prepare enough kits for 20 duplicates. Do a good bit of the cutting and stamping ahead of time. We will basically be assembling the projects while sharing fun and laughter.
* Use 20 small bags or envelopes and put one kit in each.
* Be sure to print 20 copies of your instructions... one for each kit, NOT just one copy for your table
* You do not need to provide tape and glue for your project.... each swapper should bring her own.


Your kits...
* 20 kits (19 for us gals to make + 1 in case there are any mistakes)
* any necessary "stuff" to create your project
+ 1 completed item so we can see what we’re making
+ 1 completed item to enter in the “Vote for Best Project”


Also bring...
* Your own tape, glue, pop-dots, scissors, pen, pencils et cetera. In other words, a small “tool kit” to carry with you from project to project.


Sack Lunch...
This works well and no leftovers!

Name Tag...
Create your own name tag. Make it a piece of artwork that you can be proud to wear.

Janitor’s request...
No loose glitter. No embossing powder. Those things get in the carpet and stay for months. Stickles are fine. Watercolors and chalk are great.


Free Stuff?

Do you have a few things in your craft room that you probably are never going to use???? Bring them for our FREE STUFF box. Please, not a ton of stuff. Just a few things.

Operation Write Home
* Check the link below. If you would like to donate a few cards for Operation Write Home, I would be happy to send them to Sandy in Federal Way along with all the others I need to mail.

Thank you Garnet for entrusting Debbi & me with managing the Shoebox swap this year. It won't be the same without you, but we will do our best.
We are excited to host this fun once a year event! Looking forward to a creative stamping day on Oct 4th.
