4  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Fiber Stash Swap - sendouts Dec 1 on: October 24, 2009 03:06:29 PM
Do you love crafting with fiber?

Do you have some fiber in your stash that you can't use because it is the wrong color, wrong type, you have too much of it or you just feel like something different?

Would you like to swap it for some fiber from someone else's stash and make each other a SMALL item from fiber?

If you answered yes to these questions, then why not sign up for the Fiber Stash Swap? It's a low cost way to give your unwanted fiber a new home and get some fresh supplies, plus you get to use some of your stash to create a little something for your partner.

Swap name: Chunky Pages Swap Rd 3
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Velvet Rose
Co-Organizer: TwiztidBlood
Sign-up date range: April 28 - May 10
Date to send items by: June 8
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No
Restricted to people who all live in the same country?: No
Age requirement? 13+

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old: YES

Details of swap:
We will be making 4x4 inch (10x10 cm) chunky pages in our partners' theme choice. Each swapper will decide a theme(s) for the chunky pages they wish to receive from each of their other partners.

People will be grouped in groups of 5 and will be making one page for each of their partners.  Swappers will also have the option of being in more than one group, however first-time swappers will be limited to one group only.

What makes a page chunky? 
Two things:  the paper and the embellishments.  You should use a sturdy base for your page - mat board is ideal.  Cardboard also works well, or multiple layers of cardstock or glued *securely* together.

In addition, you are encourage to use all kinds of embellishments: buttons, fibers, glass, chunky chunks!  Keep embellishments to a maximum height of 1/4 inch (about 0.6 cm) off the page. Each page should be decorated on the front and the back.  Your major effort should be made on the front, and your artist information will go on the back (at a minimum: your Craftster UserID, the name of this swap, date -- but you can include other information too, as you like).  Please decorate your backs too, but it's not necessary to make them as detailed or elaborate as the front.

Binding Preferences
Left:  leave 1/2 an inch (1.25 cm) on the left edge of the page free of embellishments, but design and decorate it all over to your heart's content.

Corners:  leave all 4 corners free of embellishment.  The recipient can then attach the pages by the corners and make a wall-hanging out of them.

Top left corner:  leave the upper left corner free of embellishment, but all other corners and edges are fair game.  The recipient will be punching a hole in the upper left corner and using rings to bind them.

None: decorate the whole page to your heart's content

In your questionnaire, you will be asked to specify which type of binding you want, and everyone should follow their partner's preferences when making pages.

Posting in the Swap Thread and Gallery:
You must post in the swap thread if you join.  It will be our main means of participation, and it will help your partners get to know you.

You must also post pictures of the pages you have received in the gallery within a reasonable time period. If you are having camera troubles please let your partners know before they send your pages so they can take photos of what they've made.


Mailing: 
DCNs and other proof of mailing will not be required.  However, if any of your partners do not receive your page, you must remake one and send it again. Please make sure you send all PMs for sending and receiving to TwiztidBlood. All participants will be required to ship internationally.

Communication:   Please don't hesitate to ask me or TwiztidBlood questions.  It's not possible to communicate with us too much! Make sure to PM TwiztidBlood and your partner when you send and when you receive.   If you are going to send late, make sure to let TwiztidBlood and your partner know.
