Exclamation All Returning Home - **4-Seasons Layout Swap** 3 +1 Due 10/15/09

All Returning Home to Swappers - Four Seasons Layout Swap

You are going to be creating 12x12 double scrapbook layouts!!

What you will do is choose a SEASON you wish to create . What you will end up with is a set of pages for each season of the year (Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall.) You need to make sure you make a set of your own layouts to keep for yourself because you will not get your own set back (To save you on postage). You will receive 3 layouts from each group you wish to sign up for to complete your four seasons.

The Rules:
1. You are sending in 3+1 (+1 for hostess) Don't forget to make a set for yourself to keep at home. Send 3+1, Double Page Layouts in 12 x 12 size.
2. Your layout must use at least 2 layers of paper. Please build your layout on quality paper.
3. Only 1 embellishment is required but please feel free to use more if you wish. Make your pages something you are proud of and would be happy to display in your own album or give to a friend as a special gift.
4. NVR, Stamping optional.

Mailing:
1. Pages MUST arrive to me by October 15th, 2009
2. Please include enough postage for me to mail your swap back to you. Plus an extra couple of stamps in a ziplock bag along with your Splitcoast name, Real Name, Season and Group Number. Some people's pages may weigh more than yours which can cause the shipping to be more. I WILL NOT return swaps that do not have enough return postage, so please include a few extra stamps - I will return all unused postage.
3. Please wrap your pages in plastic to keep them safe from water damage in the mail and include hard cardboard to protect from bending. Also write DO NOT BEND on your envelope. You can also use a box to ship your pages.
4. I will recycle your envelope but if you feel it's already beat up and will not make the round trip, please include an extra envelope.
5. Due to the new swap rules, please be on time - I am a very flexible swapper, however you must communicate with me if there are problems.
6. If you are known to be a late swapper, dropper or Flaker - PLEASE DO NOT SIGN UP, we want to get these in on time so they can be swapped ASAP.

Sounds like a storm is on its way - I hear thunder so I am shutting down the computer for the night.

Oh, this sounds great! It'll be a nice compliment to the calendar swap! I just saw some paper today that I thought would be great for a fall LO so I'll like the fall spot for group #1. I also would like in group #3 winter.

I'll take group 1 summer and group 2 spring.

I don't know if I would consider myself an experienced swapper but if you need any help or advice let me know. The biggest thing is keeping the swapped "bumped" several times a day. This will allow those going into the swap forum to see your swap first.

I'm so excited to see a new swap and new hostess. I hosted a swap like this over the winter and it was a huge hit with beautiful pages.

Thank you for joining! I just realized how "bumping" works, LOL! When I was searching the swap threads, it dawned on me that the ones with the newest comments were the ones listed first - thank you for pointing that out to me.

Tracey - nice to meet you! Thanks for joining my first swap and for the encouragement. I had thought about posting a swap for awhile but was scared to take the plunge out of fear it would not fill up or have people back out. It seems to be going well so far, wish me luck!

Thanks Megan! Cookout was great, but we did not stick around town for the fireworks. They start late, are very crowded and parking is a real nightmare! The neighbors were setting off some last night, maybe we will see some more tonight in the neighborhood.

I had a pm asking for a spot in each season. Hopefully she will be able to post in the next few days. Welcome aboard paperprincess2 - glad to have you join us!

Chris - In order to give the new player a spot in each season with four groups, I had to move you to the Fall spot in Group 4, out of group 2. Hope that's alright!

With our new player - we now have 3 FULL groups!! I am really getting excited now!

Are you sure? Taking four spots means you will be creating 20 double layouts for a total of FORTY 12 x 12 pages!! That's a whole lot of work and a VERY big commitment!

Hi Jamie, Ok, got your message, we all have things that come up, and that is why I had to drop from a few of the swaps previously! I would have really enjoyed doing at least one of the layouts..let me know if you have room for just one?!? It is too private for me to get into why I had to drop from a few swaps..Thank you, Cheryl/Stampcher

If there is still a spring spot open, I'd like that too.

Can you also clarify for me what NVR means?

thanks!

NVR= No Vender Requirement, in other words, you can use any brand paper/stamps/supplies you like.

Good afternoon everyone! Hope everyone has enjoyed their weekend. Hubby and I are on the way to the movies to see the new Transformers but just wanted to check in quickly. I will be back on this evening.

BTW - since this is my very first ever swap, I wanted to seek advice from the more experienced swappers and hostesses here. This is the type of swap that can be ruined by flakers and last minute droppers since those in that group would not receive all four seasons if someone did not follow through with their commitment for whatever reason.

With that in mind - do you think we should set a limit on the number of spots someone can take? By taking just one spot, the swapper is committing themselves to create a total of 5 double 12 x 12 layouts (that's 10 pages) which includes the set you will be keeping for yourself.

I chatted with a friend about this who is a swap hostess and she suggested I limit spots to 2 per person since these are full-size double layouts which require much more time and attention than creating cards. However, I know that would not be fair to the experienced swapper who is always reliable.

Being a new hostess, I want my first swap to be successful and any advice or suggestions you can give me would be appreciated.

I'm okay with however you decide to proceed. I'm willing to send my things in a month in advance since I'm new to splitcoaststampers if that makes feel more comfortable.

I think you need to do what makes you most comfortable.

There are people that I swap with all the time that I would never limit to how many spots they take.. but I totally respect the need for limiting people who may have had trouble in the past.

However, on the other side.. people sign up for what they think they can commit to.. and who is to say they can't? I once joined a swap and had to make 50 pages... it was a ton of fun and I loved it.

Hello girls! Glad to see some more familiar people to be swapping with.

Jaime,
Thanks so much for letting me join the swap and getting me down on the list. Let me know if you want to set the swap limit to 2 spots, if you choose to do that it doesn't matter what 2 seasons you put me on, I am pretty flexible.

I can't wait to see everyone's projects.

Well, I am pretty new to swaps. I have turned in 4 about a month early and I am working on two spots in a swap that I have to make 53 of sooooo......... I don't really know what my point was .... LOL.
Do whatever makes you most comfortable, some hostesses ask for PMs about potential flakers and have been known to take people off if they don't get a response from the swapper or they don't check in.

Goodluck with your first hostess swap. I will have mine in, but I have several in front of them right now, am working my way to them and I have a few ideas written down for when I get to them.

Thank you soo very much for all of the advice. I greatly appreciate it. Being a new hostess can be stressfull, huh??

I also thank the new swappers for checking in, makes me feel much more at ease. I think we have a great group of ladies here, so I am NOT going to restrict the number of spots you can take and will put my faith in you to honor your commitment.

Thanks and happy scrapping!!
