HELLO EVERYONE !!

This is a partner swap. You will design and make 2 Gift Bags ( or Boxes ) with a matching Tag and/or Greeting Card for your partner . Some people do not wish to have a tag or card, and you may eliminate one of the items if you partner does not want to have it. Your partner will choose from the following themes on this Round. It is important to stay in touch with your partner and create something they will enjoy giving...Be sure to use some Cricut Cuts and/or CUttlebug embossing on your items too....We are, after all, a CRICUT COMMUNITY !!

SELECT TWO (2) of the FOLLOWING THEMES and POST ON YOUR FIRST POSTING:

PETS
GIRLS NIGHT OUT
GARDENING
SCHOOL TEACHER and/or SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER
COOKING or BAKING
THANK YOU
FRIENDSHIP
FEMININE BIRTHDAY (Woman or Girl)
FATHER'S DAY
MASCULINE BIRTHDAY (Man or Boy)
PATRIOTIC THEME / VETERANS / SERVICEMEN & WOMEN

REQUIREMENTS : Contact your partner promptly and stay in touch
Check in on this thread AT LEAST once per week and leave a message

PICTURES: "Just in case" Take photos of your items BEFORE you send them and also when you receive from your partner.. and post on the site for all to enjoy ! If you do not have a digital camera, please ask your partner to post for you .
Ladies -- please PRACTICE putting photos on the MB> The main trick is to be sure to SHRINK the size of your pictures in your computer's photo program FIRST. WIndows Photo Viewer has an easy EDIT feature that allows you to select small medium large and x large sizes to "save your picture". After you save it as a "medium" or "Small" image, it will very easily upload to the MB. .. You can do the same thing on Kodak Gallery and many other sites online. PhotoSHop and Windows XP Photo Gallery is just the same.
Putting pix on here is part of the swap rules... It is the way that you can THANK YOUR PARTNER properly for a job well done and give them the credit they deserve. If you cannot do it for some reason, please let me know this when you are signing up and it will be up to your partner if she is willing to take pictures and post for you.

Send your item with a TRACKING NUMBER and POST THE # on this thread.



Your Bags should be at least a Medium Sized Bag ( approx. 8x10 or 9x12 ), something you could really use for a gift item . You may purchase plain kraft or colored bags from the store and use them for your base... I have found that buying GLOSSY bags is a mistake, as it is difficult to make the glue stick to them...I recommend using plain paper bags. I get a pack of 12 at JoAnns or Michael's or Hobby Lobby, in assorted colors, or all in white for $3.00 with a coupon....it is so economical that way ! There should be some embellishment on BOTH SIDES of the Bag...the front would be the most elaborate of course.

The Tag should be a #8 RAnger tag ( or the same size ) with a reinforced tag hole and a nice long ribbon or twine tie so that it can be hung onto a package.It should be covered on both sides with pretty papers... A card should be A2 or larger and INCLUDE a matching envelope please. Colors can be agreed upon with your partners. You may also decide to do a ChipBoard or Cardboard box that you will alter for your partner and make a tag and/or card as well. Boxes are nice because they can be used by the receiver for other purposes after the gift has been given.

I will keep this open until 4/13 -SAturday night and then assign partners on Sunday 4/14 . You will then have until Monday May 25th to craft and mail your items.

FLAKERS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. IF YOU ARE ON THE FLAKER LIST, PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO JOIN.

MEMBER LIST

This list is a little different from the usual way I do them, as partners are mixed up more - for example, I will make a set for Hodmom, but she will make hers for EvelynR#1...This way we can all get to know each other more and Evelyn can make 2 sets because she is such a
"CRAFT-O-HOLIC" !! LOL

1. Cricut Crazy will create for >>>>>>> HODMOM...............Love Recieved and Pix posted
2. KauiMelody will create for >>>>>>>>> AMYSMITH23...........Love Receivedand Pix posted
3. EvelynR #1 will create for>>>>>>>>>> BEVERLY GRAY.........Love Received and pix posted

Yes -- I was asleep but I am back. I am like a bad dream I always come back. LOL. I think this is one of my favorite swaps. I just love it. I hope I can have 2 spots again. If not, I understand. I think I am addicted to these bags. LOL. Thanks for hosting this fun swap. The themes are always fun and it's just relaxing to work on these bags. I think that's why I love this swap. When I am stressed, I always go to this swap to work on, I always feel better after I finish a bag.

Evelyn

PS -- Never too much chocolate!

I wish people could see how much fun we have doing this swap. It is absolutely the easiest swap ever. You have a gift bag, you have a Cricut, you have some paper and adhesive and embellishments and voila -- you now have a masterpiece. What more could you ask for? I just love this swap because the bags are magnificent and they come in so handy. When an occasion comes up, you just go to your handy dandy stash and pick out what you need. Now, that's what I call having it all.

Hope to see more people join -- we don't want this swap to end.

BTT for MORE MEMBERS !! I was hoping to get 10 people by Friday night !!

It does not cost much to make and send 2 gift bags with tags/cards.

You have 6 weeks to make them and they don't really take long at all.


By the way, for this Round, I would like 2 Masculine Birthday bags and cards, one for a teenager and one for an adult. These are harder to make, so I need someone who is up to a challenge ! ThumpUp Woot


Planning to assign partners on Saturday Wub

JCI -- Hope some ladies will take a good look at this swap again. You all know it well. Please help keep it going. It's real easy to do and takes so little time and one of the most rewarding ones you'll do because it makes such great gifts. I really love this swap and our hostess does a great job with partners and all the ladies have such fun with the bags they do. I do this one when I just want to create and enjoy.

luv, luv, luv, these gift bag and tag swaps, who cares if it is just a teenie tiny group, let's go forth anyway. That way, all who like these can make em. Thou shalt go forth and multiply bags and tags, no matter how large or small the group, that is my personal mantra, hope the hostess will agree, because I will be very depressed if this swap gets cancelled.LOL
