Okay fellow Canadians... we're starting our own swap BigGrin ! After some discussion, I think the holiday theme idea is the most popular, so that's what I'm going with. I've stolen these rules from a different swap (thanks BCSQ!):

RULES:

1. If you can only make one bunch then do that. Don’t sign up for more than you can do. No flakers please!
2. You make 5 cuts and send all 5 for each slot you sign up for. It makes it easier to sort.
3. Cuts need to be 3 to 5 inches in all directions. No larger than 5” in any direction; this way they will fit into a sandwich size ziploc bag.
4. Minimum 2 layers on your cut. You may add glitter/rhinestones/feathers/flocking/whatever you'd like if you so choose.
5. When you sign up, please let me know which cuts you'll be making (and what cartridges they come from) to help avoid duplicates.
6. Place each group of cuts in a sandwich bag with your real name, MB name, holiday, cut and cartridge it came from. You will need to do this for every slot you join.
7. In addition to the cuts you send you need to include a self addressed envelope and enough postage to return the cuts (usually what it costs you to ship to me plus a couple of extra stamps). I'll send back any extra stamps in your envelope.
8. You can use any cricut cartridge to make cuts.
9. The due date for this swap will be November 5. These need to be in my hands no later than this date. (I know it's a random sounding day, but I have a distance learning course to finish by Oct 31Laugh )
10. Mandatory check in dates are:
Sept 17 BigGrin
Oct 10 Cool
Oct 24 LOL
Oct 31 Flapper

Mailed Drool
Received Love

I'm going to start with groups of 5 for each holiday. If we have lots of interest, I'll add more groups. I'll close for sign ups on Sept 10.

Any questions?

Who is in?

Christmas - Group #1:
1. Larmabee - Ornament (Winter Frolic)
2. geemommy - Poinsetta (Joys of the Season)

2. Larmabee - manger silhouette (Inspired Heart)
3. Ladybug - snowman (Imagine Snow Angel)
4. NLGirl - elves (A Quilted Christmas)
5. Image queen - Santa with hands on hips (Imagine Santa's Village)

Larmabee, thanks for suggesting we do this BigGrin

I'm in too, I have always wanted to join in on these but was afraid something would get delayed in the post shipping to the US and make me miss a dead line Mad That would not be goodUnsure

Ok Christms was an easy fine but Happy New Year was a challenge even with all the carts I have Wink Let me know if my HNY is ok? If not I can have another lookBigGrin

Christmas:

It took me some time to come up with a New Year's cut too! It was my husband who suggested a party hat or noisemaker.

I'm excited to see what we all make! BigGrin

Sorry, I could have clarified that! Blushing It just means that I'd like you to stop by on this thread that day (or the day before) and just let us know that you're still around. It keeps people motivated & on schedule. This should be a pretty easy swap though, because cut numbers are small and the deadline is far away. Some people like to give a status update, some people like to say "JCI" (i.e. just checking in)... It's up to you what you want to say those days, I just want to know that everyone's still remembering this swap. And you don't have to check in anymore once I have received your stuff.
