Gee, I missed a lot so it seems!  Shocked

LBBB you've been a busy bee  Grin
From what I read about the E-6000 glue, is that it glues paper, metals and plastic. It is mostly used when making jewelry. I would say it will hold to cotton fabric. But maybe one of the others really KNOWS?

I've been thinking and planning, but didn't do anything yet. But I have a 2 week holiday, so it should all work out fine!  Smiley


ORGANIZER'S NOTE: I'll be camping with my family this week, so I will have little access to internet! I'll let you all know when I'm home again! In the meantime, stay calm and keep crafting  Wink  Cheesy

I just hope I have the right idea as far as what I'm using as "scraps." Does using pre-exsiting stash of stuff count as scraps?

I sure hope so cause one of the items I am making is just that

I said in the info of this swap that each item should contain at least 4 different materials. I'm not going to give measurements of scraps, we are our own judges! And I tried to find you a partner with (sort of) simular taste, so you can use your stash!

Isn't that what scrapping is about? To use small(er) pieces and use as much as you can out of your stash!  Smiley

Hope that answers your questions!  Smiley

Shari, I'm so sorry to hear that you're feeling so bad! Get well soon!  Kiss

And edelC: wow! You're so F---- A------ S----- T ------ !!! Haha, I will get the gallery running as soon as you mailed out!

@texscrapper, that is a lot of work! Going through lots of fabrics and make it match! Though I like that part, I hope you do too!  Cheesy

LBBB, I have no problem letting go but I agree with edelC, you don't want it to look messy. Neat scrapping is also scrapping  Wink

I think I'm going to paper piece one of my items, I'm pretty new to it, but I love it very much! It gives me the opportunity to use scraps and make wonderful designs! Oh, maybe good for you too LBBB, the seams are so neat  Cheesy

kbrison, gee that sounds like a busy crafty-household! You'd better make reservations for the tools you need  Wink

I have a million ideas...

the question is, re: paper, what constitutes a scrap..a whole new sheet of scrapbooking paper..is that really a scrap...or given that it is no longer part of a 'themed' set it is a scrap ??...because I know two things I will be making (and maybe make two of them so that I have one for me Wink ) but there is one other item and it may be a little on the dividing line between scrap/stash...still as long as the scrap police don't see this post, I will probably be alright...


Isn't that always the question: what is a scrap? How small does it need to be... We are our own judges. I think as long as you use at least 4 different materials, you'll be fine. I tried to match you so that you can really use what you do have in your stash, but it isn't always possible to make it all from scratch.
As long as you don't only use complete sheets of paper, it should contain small pieces too?   Huh Something like that?

I did check your current partner in the running swaps  Tongue haha!
But if you were partnered with him/her before, you really do match well  Grin

Happy to see your enthousiasm! Yay for that!!  Grin Grin

I have one idea already... and maybe I will try a new technique or try a different style (read: other than cute  Wink )

Woohoo!! What a great start Scrappy-Happy-swappers!

Wendiek, you did some awesome pairing! I can't wait to get started! Abby is in school, and Maggie is napping, and I'm on pinterest stalking away with a cup of coffee! Perfect afternoon!

It certainly helps that I know a few of you from swapping!  Smiley
Oh and I had a great list of questions made by Leslie and Susan to start with! I take pairing very serious, everyone should have fun because of a matching partner  Cheesy

Thanks Beck! Have fun!!

Already have my large planned out for my partner, now to dig in the fabric scrap tub(s) ... That may take a few days  Shocked Shocked Shocked

Oh my! You're so fast!! And now you made me very curious...  Roll Eyes

I cleaned my entire craft room, including all the fabrics, the paper stuff, craft/sewing magazines, crochet yarn, glues,... That took me a few days...
You have that many fabric scraps? Or maybe your project requires lots of small pieces,... Haha, now I'm even more curious Roll Eyes hihi
