Hi Everyone - For anyone who is a panic trying to finish, I have decided to allow an extra day because I am having health problems that have slowed me down the last 10 days ...so please let me know if you need to post on Tuesday. Wub It will be all right ThumpUp

HERE IS AN UPDATE ON REQUIREMENTS :

One requirement of this swap is that you will need either a " Mini Books " Cartridge to do it, or if you own some other type of die that allows you to cut out an Exploding Box that is large enough to make an album, then you may use that. Or, if you are such a super genius crafter that you can cut one out free-hand, then by all means, please do so !! Woot ThumpUp I am not such a genius so I will be using a cartridge !

This will be a partner swap and you will make an album and a mini composition book in a theme that your partner chooses for you. When you sign up for the swap you will also give your partner one or 2 choices of themes for your items, so they will know what to choose for your colors & embellishments.

YOU are responsible for contacting your partner immediately and exchanging addresses and/or other pertinent information. I cant keep track of everything for you.

PLEASE send your pkg. on time and nicely packaged for your partner. Added goodies are always optional if you wish to put something extra in there for her.

ONCE you RECEIVE your pkg. PLEASE POST PICTURES RIGHT AWAY in order to thank your partner properly. This is important. IF you do not have a camera then borrow one. A good rule is DO NOT OPEN you box until you have a camera ready to take pictures !

PLEASE DO NOT BE A FLAKER !! [sad] ThumbDown THANKS !! Wink Woot

Hi - Yes the first pic is from the cartridge. The other Christmas pictures are from the Cricut Mini Album Magazine 2013... it is a super cute Mini Album I think .

Composition books are easy. Cover with coordinating papers and embellishments to match your album. Great little gift for Christmas or birthdays or just for anytime ! Woot Wub

Still thinking on this. I found the mini books cartridge at HL on clearance a while back, for $8.00 and I bought it. I also have a pattern for the exploding box. Never thought about altering mini composition note books. Might even have one or two of them lurking around in my craft room. Will make a decision no later than Monday next week.

I guess I am in Barb, I've watched some videos and they look like fun. My son's gf got me some really nice bling stuff, ink pads, perfect pearls, (have to learn about them). Eyelets, brads. Oh this beautiful foil cardstock. Want to heat emboss if you can on foil. I embossed some butterfly's on some and it's gorgeous. Going to send it to someone. Love it when she visits, she spoils me rotten.
I know what some gifts will be for friends here. Hugs - Patti

Come on everyone this is going to be fun.

Great Golfingrams !! Thanks so much ! Glad to have you with us....

Hoping to get at least 10 participants here. These are a little bit of a challenge for beginners, but not impossible to do if you just take your time and go step by step.

As soon as we get our partnerships, we will each post our theme choices.

COME ON AND JOIN US !! Woot ThumpUp

Hey Carol, how are you and how is your DH doing. I've missed you.

Catita - me also, if I didn't have these swaps and friends I would be totally depressed and crazy. I really needed getting on these boards and swaps to keep my sanity and I've learned so much and made such great friends. Hugs - Patti

Count me in for this one! I've altered many, many composition notebooks - I've gotten the large ones on clearance for 10 cents and altered them for my daughter's birthday party favors and added crayons as a drawing journal for the party favors! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the mini albums cartridge as well - used it to make a mini for the RED, WhITE & BluE swap a few weeks ago! I'm going back to teaching this fall Scared Scared Scared but I think I can use this as an excuse to keep crafty! Since I've altered the composition books before, that'll be a breeze - Wonderful!



The exploding box will be a fun challenge as well!!!!


SOOOOOOO excited !

I think you can get them at many stores, I think we even have them at our small Family Dollar. WalMart - Target - Michaels - HL. I think most stores have the composition books, think they are harder covered than say note books and some other books.

Nat - there are some good YouTube videos also. You can pm me of course with your hints.

Office Depot, Office Max, Staples all have them here.

WELCOME TO ALL NEW MEMBERS !! I will help you along with these projects as much as I can....the Mini comp book is really a snap to do. I like to use coordinating papers and make a little "binding" on the "spine" of the book to contrast. I also love to see them embossed...adds so much character !

There is only one exploding box on the MiniBooks cartridge...so you cant really go wrong . I will have to pull mine out of the "dust bunny grave" LOL it is in and let you know tomorrow about what page it is on.

Wonder where KM is ??? We need her in this one !! Wink ThumpUp

Barb, what size are the comp books, I've never paid attention to that. On the mini books cartridge in the subscription there is only one page "basic". Maybe I have the wrong one.

Oh yah where is KM, I haven't seen her in awhile. KM are you okay, I sure hope so. Lori - Kazalah hasn't been on either for 2 days,, that is unusual. Hope your okay also.

Barb, I have the handbook open and thought I would jump in here to let everyone know what "Page" the exploding box is on . Pages 17-21. The page number is in the lower right hand corner of each page. The number is written in white over the yellow border of the pages. Very hard to see. I almost missed the page numbers. Another way to find it is.....it comes right after the pages showing what button each project is located on. I found a blog where someone posted the directions, but at this time I can not locate where I wrote down the information. If I remember correctly, the base was cut from a sheet of 12 X 12 cardstock. I will keep looking and if come up with it, will post on here for those who do not have the Mini Books cartridge.
