*One their way home* Mini Album Kit Swap - Due 1/22/13
 
I don't know if you've seen Webster's Pages Sprinkles Craftbox (I've already re-ordered mine for October, but I do know they aren't everyone's style.

This isn't due until the middle of January. I have enough to do before the holidays and this gives us something to look forward to. This will be a great opportunity to use up those scraps (paper and stray embellies) that we can't seem to throw away. These do not have to be identical.

Here goes:
1. 2 (+1) due to me by 1/22/13
2. Each kit should include: 1 mini album (doesn't have to be bound) with at least 6 pages, (at least 4x4, not bigger than 5-1/2 x 8-1/2)
3. enough paper to cover anything that needs to be altered (if you're sending paper bags to make an album, please send enough paper to cover all the bags)
4. At least 3 of the following to embellish
a) 1 yd of ribbon, fiber
b) set of 2-4 journaling cards/tags
c) set of 4-6 brads/rhinestones
d) set of 3-6 flowers
e) rhinestone flourish
f) set of 4-6 buttons
g) resin/poly clay embellie
you get the idea (will gladly add any suggestions)
5. Please put each kit in their own baggie for protection, and please send $ or postage for the return home.

Mail to:
Monica Gardner
4405 Orlan Lane
Bowie, MD 20715

Everyone will get a kit from me. So you will receive 3 back.
Who want's to join me?

Saving in case we want to break this down into themes or by company.

Joan7356 10-01-2012 04:07 AM

Hmmmm.... sounds interesting... subbing while I think....

StampinGoodDeeds 10-01-2012 04:30 AM

Oh you know I'm in, DH just got me a BIA and I have to break it in! :) 1 spot to start please!

StampinGoodDeeds 10-01-2012 04:30 AM

Feel free to ad it in my swaps too!

nhagen 10-01-2012 04:47 AM

Subbing for now......

Can the pages for the mini be card stock or are you looking for chipboard and /or other materials etc (I noticed you mentioned paper bag album that's why I am asking)?????????

The pages can be cardstock.

Joan7356 10-01-2012 07:02 AM

Monica ... and that would be 6 individual pages so that when put together there would be 12?

We would just make the kits... not actually put them together? Should there be a photo included as to our "vision"?

monicas silcott 10-01-2012 07:03 AM

Susan, I got you down. Thanks for playing!!

Joan and nhagen, I'll try to make a sample kit and post a picture (to tempt you more).

Off to finish a DT entry, wish me luck.

Have a great day ladies!!

mauiueno 10-01-2012 09:49 AM

Okay - this sounds like great fun! Please sign me up gor one spot!

mrslaporte 10-01-2012 09:54 AM

Monica, I'm so intrigued and I know you and Susan will hold my hands if I have questions. :) Sign me up for one spot. :)

Joan7356 10-01-2012 10:53 AM

Sign me up for one spot.... please.

StampinGoodDeeds 10-01-2012 10:59 AM

What? I was planning on you holding my hand through it, Marilyn!!! haha

Yes, 6 individual (pieces of paper) to make 12 pages (I always forget that).
And we just make the kits, not put them together into a finished project, unless you want to bind your papers to make a "blank" notebook style album. If you would like to include a photo, that's up to you.

Is this making sense?

monicas silcott 10-01-2012 11:58 AM

mauiueno, Joan, and Marilyn- I've got you down. Thanks for joining ladies.

Perfect Sense!

You've come to the right place to make friends. Have you joined any other swaps?

StampinGoodDeeds 10-03-2012 04:28 AM

Oh, she has found the right group to find swaps alright. :) hehe

We are a rather enabling bunch. :)

StampinGoodDeeds 10-06-2012 06:52 AM

Are you all out crafting or shopping?? Its awfully quiet around here... :)

StampinGoodDeeds 10-09-2012 08:07 AM

Hey, did I miss the party location? I'm starting to feel alone here! :)

mauiueno 10-09-2012 10:06 AM

Figured out what I'm going to make and cannot wait til I finish my other swaps to start this one! That being said - I know that I will be picking up things here and there for my mini albums! Love the planning part!

Hi Susan, I'm sorry, no party (I wouldn't have a party without you). I've been busy trying to get samples finished for my classes at Michael's and now I have a lead for another job (teaching paper crafts to Senior Citizens). Busy, Busy.

Even though I seem to be as busy as I was when I was working full-time, it is still less stressful than teaching. Off to work on more stuff!

I'm guilty of that (picking up things ahead of time) and then putting it all together later. Such fun!

CherryLime 10-09-2012 11:32 AM

Monica,

I would love to have at least one spot for now. If we split into catergories, then I might take another.

Summer flew by, work's been hectic with no end in sight. And trying to keep up with swaps - having a hard time not joining, they all sound like so much fun and I love to see what others make. Still haven't learned to crochet yet; but it's still on my list.

How have you been? I got your card/stationary holder from the tagged textiles swap, very cute idea....I think I will be making some of these for friends.

tryingtofindtime 10-11-2012 07:29 PM

I think I will give this a try....one spot please.

lois577 10-11-2012 10:24 PM

What a fun idea for a swap! I would like a spot, please.

What's everyone up to this weekend? I'm hosting Crop Night at Mike's tonight, in class to renew my teaching certificate (9 - 5:30) tomorrow, and teaching classes at Mike's on Sunday. Busy but fun!!

mrslaporte 10-12-2012 03:04 AM

Hi monica....
I've been away from your thread for a few days. I'm back. Can you show me some links about poly, I'll also go and reread Susan's poly swap maybe that'll give me some ideas too.
Hugs from WI

venus@home 10-12-2012 06:31 AM
