I've seen it done elsewhere, but I have not seen on Craftster (which isn't to say there never was) and I would love to do something like this.  I love scrapping and last night I pulled out some premade layouts and embellishments and it made everything go so quick.  It was great.

We could do it a few different ways.  We could have groups of 5 and have each person make a layout for each of the 5 people.  Or we could have larger groups put together a kit.  For example:

Person A sends 2 embellished tags to each member
Person B sends 4 brads to each member
Person C sends a stamped image to each member
Person D sends 12" of fiber or ribbon to each person

and so on...

I know that could add up in shipping even though these items should be able to be mailed cheaply.  I am not 100% on the rules, but I am not sure if swaps are allowed where the organizer collects all the items and then sends them out.  I myself am wary if those kind of swaps.

Ideas?  Suggestions?  Interested?

Friends don't let friends craft alone :)

I would like to maybe make 4 2 page layouts 12X12 and send them to my partner...all must be different and within maybe the list of lets say 20 things partners like  ( birds, girly, camping, toys, kids, etc....and we must embellish and layer....humm just my 2 cents


I am able to do personal swaps again so lets get some going Cheesy

I think this sounds fun. Even if we all just make different things and swapped.  I have a hard time planning out layouts, so mabye we could each swap layout plans?
