NEPA Stamp & Swap - “Jingle All The Way”
Saturday, November 5, 2016
10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Wysox Presbyterian Church
22953 RT 187
Wysox, PA 18854


EVENT IS CLOSED & CREATING!

You’re invited to join our 2nd NEPA Stamp & Swap, a day of stamping, friendship & fun! We have a lot planned so please read everything & if you have any questions, PLEASE ASK! This forum will be our main way of communicating including the final numbers and other information for the event. It’s a good idea to check-in here even after the event is closed.

The theme for our event is
“Jingle All The Way”…of course the holiday season is on everyone’s mind now..isn’t it? It’s not mandatory but you can include the theme in your shoebox project or any of the swaps. We will be having a contest so you put on your thinking caps & enter your project(s). Attendees will be voting for their favorite project!

COST – $25.00 per person. Registration must be paid no later than 5 pm on Saturday, October 8. This will allow 4 weeks to prepare!


***The registration form is attached at the end of this post***

Mail your registration form and payment to Lou Ann McGuire (address is on the form). There are NO REFUNDS, but you may offer your spot to someone else. Your registration is complete when your payment is received. If you have any questions, please ask! You may wonder "what does $25 get me?" It gets the venue, bottled water, paper products, and a small gift bag, plus a fun day with some really great people, a chance to use new ideas, products and enjoy our hobby. All funds collected will be spent on the event.

So here’s the plan:

MANDATORY SHOE BOX (TABLE) PROJECT – Bring your idea and all the supplies (pre-cut but not pre-stamped) needed for
16 people to make your project the day of the event. Since this is our 2nd event we may split into morning & afternoon groups depending on the number of people attending. You'll have this information at deadline time. QUALITY PRODUCTS ARE MANDATORY. There are several threads that discuss the quality of swaps. Please read them if you are unsure. ALL the shoebox projects will be set out in the morning. YOU will move, YOUR PROJECT will not. GOOD DIRECTIONS WILL NEED TO BE POSTED BY YOUR SHOEBOX unless it’s obvious what to do. You will not demo or be around for everyone to ask questions. Remember to include your name & SCS name on your directions. When our final count is in, you will know how many kits to make. You will need to bring TWO extra completed shoebox projects (which includes 1 hostess thank you and one for your table so that everyone can follow it for directions). This project will generally be a full card, with layers and embellishment(s) or a simple 3D item. Please provide any special adhesive that's needed. Make these something you’d be thrilled to get yourself. When you know what your shoebox project is, please post a name for it here or send me a PM. We will all have a check off list the day of the event.Projects should take NO MORE THAN 5-10 minutes to complete. If you are unsure, time someone else doing your project. You should also bring extra parts to fix any "oopies".

***********************************************
PLEASE MAKE UP 16 KITS!!! PLUS 2 COMPLETED!
***********************************************

SWAPSYou must participate in ONE swap. You’ll know how many to make when we post the final counts. The deadline will allow 4 weeks to prepare for the event:

• ATC Swap –
Final Count =10 – Info in Post #5.

• Christmas Card Swap -
Final Count = 16 – Info in Post #6.

• Recipe Card Swap –
Final Count =8 - Info in Post #7.

• Gift Card Holder –
Final Count = 10 - Info in Post #8.

• Christmas Card Candy –
Final Count = 6 - Info in Post #9.

CONTEST – We want to see how you “Jingle All The Way”! We will have an area set up to enter your shoebox project, your swap(s) or any other project you've made but it needs to have a Christmas theme. I suggest making an additional item since votes will be cast through lunch. The winner will be announced prior to the end of the event. Can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!!

FOOD – there is a refrigerator. Please indicate on the registration form the specific food item you will bring to share. Ideas- breakfast items, lunch items, including salads, desserts and snacks. We love to try your homemade food specialties! Bottled water will be provided; please bring your own soda, etc.

DOOR PRIZES - our goal is to have something for everyone. Donations for door prizes are welcome.

GIFT SWAP - This is not mandatory but if you would like to participate bring a gift related to our stamping passion. Everyone who brings a gift to swap will also leave with one. Value on these should be in the $5-10 range, and stamped projects are always appreciated! If it’s something you’d like to take home, it’s probably perfect! Be sure to include your name somewhere inside so the lucky winner knows who to thank. Wrap it up prettily so it’ll be a surprise until we’re done swapping. REMEMBER: Stamping-related!!!

EMBOSSING AREA – We will have areas set up with a heat tool & a Big Shot for embossing/cutting so no need to bring your own. You will need to bring the embossing powders for your project with a tray/paper plate, etc. or embossing folders/dies for your project.

NAMETAGS – Since we all want to make new friends, please bring a name tag & include your SCS name if you have one. Stamped handmade nametags are beautiful & fun to see how creative we can get but we will have generic name tags available too.

OTHER
– Please bring your own labeled items for your personal stamping needs, including LOTS of your favorite adhesive. These are the items you just can’t stamp without, like: bone folder, paper cutter/scorer, scissors, straightedge, stamp cleaner! Don't forget your camera!

Remember...complete the registration form and forward with your $25 payment by OCTOBER 8th

Christmas Card Candy: this swap will be 4 - 6 items, placed on a piece of vellum or wax paper then adhered to a piece of cardstock (to make it sturdy). They don’t have to be strictly paper you can crochet tiny flowers or make them from fabric, etc. They should have some layers and embellishments (bling, brads, Crystal Effects, etc.). All pieces can be the same or a variety of pieces that go well together. Use a tiny glue dot or removable adhesive dot to adhere each piece to the vellum/wax paper. To keep it uniform the card should be placed in a 5 by 7 cello bag with a topper. For clarification please use this link to a pinterest board https://www.pinterest.com/dingallsto...mbellishments/ of samples that shows what card candy is & how to assemble it for a swap. Depending on number of people participating this may be divided into groups
  1. DOORPRIZE
  2. Robin
  3. Mary Ann
  4. Lou Ann
  5. Judy P
  6. Gayla
