SWAP GALLERY: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=297619.0


Swap name: Chunky Pages Swap Rd 2
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: sheepBlue
Co-Organizer is TwiztidBlood
Sign-up date range: March 9th - 20th
Date to send item by: April 17th
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 following each swapper's theme choice. This means 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. This equals 4 chunky pages made with 4 weeks of crafting time - there should be no excuses for sending late! It is up to each person whether they want to send each page as they are completed or as a group, as long as all are sent by the deadline. Swappers will also have the option of being in more than one group; first-time swappers will be limited to one group only for this round (sorry!).   

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.  Lightweight cardboard (think cereal boxes) also works well, as does heavy watercolor paper (140 lb/300 gsm) or multiple layers of cardstock glued *securely* together.  In addition, you can 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 or None:  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.

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: 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.

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.

I really want to do this one, but I'm a little behind on a couple of things right now so I'll have to see. I'm hoping by the end of sign-ups I'll feel caught up enough to join.

Holy Cow!  I have absolutly no self discipline!  I had told myself that after the matchbox swap I would take a break from swapping and now THIS shows up, and I really think I'm just gonna have to join.

Haha! I know exactly what you mean. At least with this shipping will be relatively cheap compared to large item swaps.

but I tend to spend way more time on a swap like this, so maybe cheap as far as money, but pretty expensive if you count time  Wink
