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. If shipping inside the United States, you must get a DC# and if youre shipping outside the United States you must be able to show a copy of your postage receipt (scanned or photographed)

I know this swap has been done before. But was it international? I can't imagine the pages not getting destroyed travelling around the world...

Yes it was international, but I was the only international swapper in the last 2 swaps as everyone who signed up was in the USA (I'm in australia)
Though I didn't have any probs posting my layouts overseas, I just popped my layouts in a padded envelope with a piece of strong cupboard the same size as the layout. None of my layouts have been bent or damaged so far  Grin

I'll have to think about it. I'm really wanting to take a swap break after my current swaps are finished up. We'll see. Thanks for letting us know.
