For those of you that have never participated in a shoebox swap before here are the details. The FINAL details (numbers etc) will depend on how many sign up so for now this is basic information. I'm going to give you an example of 20 people. If we have 20 people sign up for the shoebox swap this is what it will look like...

This is a 20 full CHRISTMAS card shoebox swap. (DOESN'"T HAVE TO BE A CARD) They have to be demonstrable cards (meaning it would be something you would do in a workshop or class)

Design your card at home. Cut for 22 cards (two extra) Put all your stamp sets, stamp pads and accessories (ribbon, etc. already cut to size and bagged in a baggie for each person) in a shoebox or other similar size box. PLEASE HAVE YOUR NAME ON ALL MATERIALS THAT YOU HAVE IN YOUR BOX.

When you come into the room that day, you will set up your project on the display table leaving your sample card up on the front of the box. You will then split into groups (tables) then each group picks one shoe box from the display table then your group will make that project, until you have completed all 20 projects.

Remember...the final count is NOT 20...that was just an example... I will give you the final count Oct.31 In the meantime, think of a CHRISTMAS project that you'd like to do.

Also if you have anything to due with stamping or scrapping that you would like to sell that day please let me know.
Thanks rose perkins
