Details of swap:
For this swap you will make a list of 5 themes for your partner to choose from. Your partner will then choose a theme and create two (2) layouts for you. All items used on the layouts must be acid and lignin free. You can specify on the questionnaire whether you prefer to swap 12x12 or 8x8 sized pages and Ill do my best to match you up. If youd like to make more than swap requirements please discuss this with your partner. You may want to do a double layout of one theme for your partner or do 2 single layouts with two different themes from their list.
This will be a medium swap.
By Time - Medium = 2 or more hours
By Price - Medium = $10-$30 dollars

Here are some examples of themes you can put on your list: pet, beach, baby, anniversary, teenage, Christmas, marriage/wedding, valentine/love, friendship, vacation, children, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Easter, school, sporting, favorites, Disney, party, grandparent, travel, seasonal, these are just some examples and you can get a bit more specific on your questionnaire.

Here is an example of how to answer your questionnaire on list of themes and titles (if youd like a title on your page)

Themes
1. Baby boy
2. Halloween
3. School
4. Christmas
5. Pet dog

Title ideas:
1.Our Baby Boy, Sweet One, Bundle of Joy
2.Spooky, Trick or Treat, Halloween 2009
3.First Day at School, School Days,  
4.Christmas Time, Decorating the Tree,
5.My dog Spot, At the Park,

The rest is in your creative hands. Theres no limit of what to put on the layouts, think paper piecing, rub ons, sewing, stickers, chipboard, punchies,  bling/rhinestones, diecuts, ribbons, eyelets/brads, stamping, painting, doodling etc.
If you have a wist why not add a few of your favourite layouts youve seen to it so your partner can get some ideas of what youd like. If you google scrapbook layouts you will also get heaps more inspiration and ideas.

When sending your layouts to your partner, remember to pack the envelope with a piece of hard card/chipboard to stop it being bent and to put it in some kind of ziplock bag or page protector.

Communication is also important so please post a least once a week in the thread and remember to PM the organizer and your partner when you send and receive.

I'm considering this one. Is it okay if we request a different size pages be made? My current scrapbook is 8.5 x 11 inches.  If I joined, I certainly wouldn't mind crafting a different size page from what I have.

I haven't started crafting yet and won't be able to until next week at the earliest.  I did get a few supplies yesterday and I think I have everything I need to make the pages.  I just have to get the time to sit down and work on it.

I'm back from my mini-vacation with lots of ideas rolling around in my head. Sadly I have an exam this week on top of catching up at work, so I don't think I'll get a chance to craft until later in the week or this weekend.

I found some awesome patterned paper on ebay and bought it, then find out the seller is on holidays till the 1st of April Sad I'll just work on the other pages till I get them and I'm hoping they get here fast once the seller gets back because they are perfect for what I have in mind Grin

I finished up my two pages today. I'm hoping to send out on Monday if I can find an envelope big enough.  Do they even make 12x12" envelopes?

I've never found any...that's a great idea tho!
I usually use a flat rate post box and leave it flat, tape the edges and cover it in butcher paper - costs a bout $3.50 to send that way. Just an idea.

I actually found a bubble mailer that was around 14x19" or so.  It was huge. I cut some of it off and put the pages in there with cardboard protections.  I sent it out today and hope it gets there safely.

I am so sorry for being behind in my swap.... I know I've not been a good partner.  I'm not going to waste time with the details, but there've been some unexpected chaos in my personal life.... along with a clumsy me that ended up with a broken laptop.

I've got all my projects completed but havn't been home to get them mailed out.  I'll have them in the mail in the morning and the DC#'s sent to the appropriate folks.

I've recieved my AWESOME projects from my partner and will take and post pictures later tonight when I get home and settled.

{{hugs}} to you all and thanks for understanding.
