The round names will change to reflect the due date. simpler - I hope :D This round is due to ship by 10/31/2013 (a Thursday)

Basic rules - all items to be two pieces of paper thick or one thickness of nice cardstock. They can be more, but if you use paper rather than cardstock, it must be backed by something.

All items to be embellished twice (unless otherwise directed). Embellishment ideas include buttons, bling, ribbon, fiber, brads, inking edges, coloring a stamped image, stickles, skittles, paint, eyelets, etc.. There are 100's to choose from. The only thing that doesn't count as an embellishment - plain flat stickers. Just make it something you would be proud to use in your album/altered project.

Each group of 8 items is to be put into a ziplock type baggie for shipping. I appreciate your taking time to do this step. It helps the swap go much quicker. It also helps if you choose to do monogrammed items and such. If you do this, please be sure to label each bag.

All bags are to list who sent the contents - we love to know who makes such wonderful creations!

Include enough postage/cash for return shipping. I do return extra - rounded to nearest quarter for cash; stamps - any that are not used are returned.

After you join, I will send you my address. Checking in every two weeks is required. It lets me/group know you are still around and participating!

Unless otherwise stated, each item is to be at least 3.5" in one direction. If you create smaller items, just set them end to end to be sure at least one measurement is this minimum size. Larger is fine, but this is the minimum.

September

Week One - create a criss-cross card. Any theme. Directions can be found here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resou ... ross_card/
Card is to be the standard size when completed (1/4 of a sheet of 8.5 x 11 paper). No envelope required, but you can if you like.

Week Two - Fall colors - oranges/greens/browns/reds - create an item (I can email you a pdf listing of ideas/sizes/etc. if you wish. Just email me at scraprageous@gmail.com with 52 week pdf in the title) using these colors. Journal cards, deco squares, fun embellishment piece from cricut cuts, etc.

Week Three - Cricut to the Fall???? Pick something that reminds you of fall - apples, acorns, school, harvest, shorter days, cooler weather, last minute vacations, fairs - whatever. Then create a cricut cut (or cuts) to go with your idea. The cuts are to be embellished. If you pick something that doesn't have layers - remember you can mix and match - animal wearing a backpack, school books with a backpack - tons of ideas.

Week Four - Technique Crazy. Since the Tim Holtz blog demonstrates how-to's so well on his tags, this round's technique will be using a fragment like he did back in 2008 on his Day 11 tag here: http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-c-10/ It doesn't have to be a snowflake, but you need to use an embossed fragment (or piece of 1/8" plexiglass - I don't care which you use) for this. Use your fragment to create either a tag (small one - 2.5 x 4" is fine) or a deco square (3" x 3").

Week Five - Create some altered paper clips. Create either 2 of the large (2.5" in length) clips or 1 Jumbo (3.5-4" in length) clip or 3 smaller clips per person.

Week Six - Total Choice! You get to choose. If you are having a hectic month - you can buy something for each person. OR - You can create an embellishment bag of at least 4 items (example: 1 yard fiber, 4 regular size brads, 3 un-embellished die cuts (3" in size or larger), and 5 buttons). You don't have to use this listing for an embellishment baggie - it is just to give you an idea. You can make something instead, but this is a 'free for all' week - have some fun with it.

Week Seven - In the US, National Coffee day is September 29th. Now that is a day I love to celebrate and remember everyday! Create something with a coffee theme to it. It could be a greeting card (if not standard size, please include envelope), some embellished shrinky dink items, some stick pins, a library pocket, a photo mat, an altered coaster, etc.. You get to choose the item, and enjoy. If you don't drink coffee - you could do an anti-coffee day theme as well, as long as it is in good taste.

Week Eight - Bo Bunny Paper - create something using a Bo Bunny Brand of paper. Please let us know what line you are using when you send (just in case we want to create more items) BigGrin


Wrap it all up and ship by October 31. I will return items the next week (in November, I have election duties on the 5th and the weekend before, so I don't plan to return these items until 11/7 unless they all arrive by the 31st).

details for entire year (if you are interested) are on my blog BigGrin Love Love

Participants - eight max per round. Please think before joining. Once you join, you are committing to create 64 items, ship them, and pay for return shipping. If you have the items above in your stash - cost is only the shipping both ways. If you don't, please consider that before joining in the fun.

Hi - Thanks for the further explanations...now that I have read everything through I think that I am feeling a little overwhelmed right now . I know I should not commit to something that I fear I would not be able to accomplish. Maybe next time around I will try it. BigGrin

Barb - no problem BigGrin That is why I wanted you to look here first. If you have a lot going on, this can be overwhelming. Maybe we will catch you next round

Denise - that is a really pretty line! I bet you will enjoy creating with it.

I am still working on ideas for mine - hoping to figure out the fragment technique this weekend. Saw a perfect embellishment piece for the coffee day one - now to figure out where to purchase BigGrin BigGrin BigGrin

Blog I found the coffee piece I want: http://okienurse.blogspot.com/

you need to scroll down a bit and you can see the tag that inspired the embossing folder I would love to get!

Checking to see if someone from this board emailed me regarding this swap. I received a blank email message with 52 week swap in subject line. If so, please resend and put something into the message so I know it isn't spam. Sorry, but I get so much spam these days, even with filters on that I don't respond to blank messages. BigGrin

Hello,
I would love to join this swap please. While I am new to this board I have been crafting for years. This one looks like a lot of fun. It will allow me to try a few new things and that is exciting. Looking forward to seeing all the great things everyone comes up with!!

Cause I really like this swap and cause it's more fun with all 8 people in and cause I've already started and have four weeks done with 8 items ... I'm going to try a bribe ... If we get 8 people participating I'm going to have a draw for a mini album for all the people who haven't been in all 7 rounds (cause they'll already have it).
For week six for all the rounds I made a page for an envelope mini and for round 8 a matching journaling spot, I will do a draw for my copy of this mini it we get 8 people completing the round.

definitely time to start drooling! Thank you so much for offering, Candy.

If anyone hasn't seen some of Candy's wonderful mini-album pages, let me know and I will get some postings created. They are wonderful to see and even more fun to use!

Be sure to check out Candy's generous offer in post 14!

I have the entire year ready to send. However jpeg format rather than pdf - long story, but I am missing a disk for my program re-installs. Eventually it will show up :)

The entire year is shown over on my blog if you want to see what you are getting yourself into BigGrin BigGrin

Remember - I limit this to eight participants. More than eight can get overwhelming, less than eight works, but is not as fun. It is always fun to get to know people through this swap!

If you have Publisher, let me know and I can send you an original file.

I was on your blog(love it) and read the up coming swaps....I went and ordered paper for them in advance, in case I decide to do them. HA in case. This and the ATC are 2 of the swaps I will continue doing. Along with Gwynne's Christmas swap...

Denise - thanks so much for offering a goody bag! That is wonderful of you to do!!!

As far as the rounds, I have my list with me so if I catch something on sale - will buy now BigGrin BigGrin

This is an addicting swap - I love that there is always something to work on. It usually helps inspire other things I am doing.

Rebecca - it would be awesome if you would join again. BigGrin I try to keep the requirements pretty simple. I never want things stressful - simple and fun so trying new techniques isn't intimidating. Spring could be flowers, baby animals, babies, Easter, garden items, sunshine, and tons more! You can make what you like. Maybe some journal items that have flowers on them or photo mats with garden rakes and plants. Sky is the limit! BigGrin BigGrin

Bumping for the weekend. Remember - if you are new, you are welcome to join. This isn't nearly as hard as it sounds. It is making 8 of one of the above items each week. I use the items I make to jump start mojo for other albums I am working on or as a way to test a new technique on a smaller palette than a whole 12x12 layout.

Ask any questions BigGrin BigGrin

Cheryl, they don't have to be identical ... let's face it we always don't have 8 of everything we need, they should be basically the same, but if the materials are a bit different that's fine.

Thanks for answering, Candy BigGrin BigGrin

Cheryl - that is correct, the items don't need to be identical. They can be, but they don't have to be. Ex: If making the criss cross card (this works especially when using scraps for pp) - one can be birthday, one could be Christmas, another anniversary, etc..

Another example - if making fall colors items - they can be different colors - maybe a library pocket in browns, another in reds, another in oranges, etc..

Does that help?

ps - a goal of this swap - use mostly what you have, but still get to buy something new if you don't have a stash. BigGrin
