Hello Ladies...

I've done severeal of these and love the look. Been in a few swaps on a few other boards making these and they are so easy and a joy to make.

SO...I thought I would open a swap making them here....any interest?

THere is a die that cuts the size you need for these but not sure where to buy them....I bought mine from SU a while back. SIZE for these are....on average 2.5 x 4......so you could buy them at an office supply store and add chipboard to the back for reinforcement and then alter.

You will make 5 ....send ME 4 of them and 1 is for YOU....have them weighed and use that much in STAMPS ONLY to put inside for returns PLUS 3 xtra stamps...I will return what is not needed

THEME will be....VINTAGE/SHABBY CHIC

They need to be all the same as much as possible. Placed in a baggie with the info inside...name/boardname and swap name.

DUE DATE~~~~~OCTOBER 22

Here is a photo of one I just did...

These are so much fun to make and FAST. Maybe we should do a video and show them huh? It is absolutely the best way to use scraps and leftover embellishments. I really hope to see more people sign up.

I have a stupid question. What do you do with these when they are complete ?

Shabby chic\vintage are not my usual style but I'll give it a try.

Hello Ladies...

Laura...Shabby CHic is more of whites/lt pinks/mint greens...in colors...
Vintage....is more of antique items...old..timeless...detailed frames..pearls..old lace..etc

You can use them on layouts or on cards....they are like a ATC kind of.....

Osheasmom.....I hope that the above answers your questions too..hon. if not let me know...

I know you can buy the rolodex cards at an office supply store...Staples...etc...and just alter them...that works too.

I can't join just now, but if it is 10/10 or later due date, I would be able to (sorry, other commitments I know I need to fill). If it closes sooner, I sure hope that everyone posts pics of their cards - vintage/shabby chic is always sooo much fun!

Here are some photos - my plain jane rolodex - still planning to embellish with a garden theme, but I am using it to track dates and other small pieces of info. I gave away all my fancy ones as gifts. I use the cards also to record various websites and techniques.

Would work as an address file too :P



Here are some in use ones that I found on the web - from split coast stampers - http://cdn.indulgy.com/S...4763894385vRsXUcD5c.jpg

Some rolodex ideas (nope, wish they were mine, but a friend posted a link on another site) http://www.scrapbook.com...chwords&s=leah+fung

http://triplethescraps.b...-for-rolodex-files.html

Triple Scraps Rolodex ideas

A quote from the above blog: **Keep favorite scriptures or quotes like this (a Rolodex instead of ATC)
http://2.bp.blogspot.com...QnxY/s400/IMG_6960a.jpg

after 50 weeks of study:

**Keep a stamp inventory like this.
**Keep a list of journaling prompts (pull one & have fun). You can see some here and here.
**Keep a file of birthdays, anniversaries, and special dates.
**Create mini albums (kids, family, vacations, "about me," etc.)
**Create a color challenge or inspiration file like this one.
**Create a "year in photos" album (a photo a week with journaling on the back).
**If you like to read, keep a reading log (a card per book). You can even print a tiny "avatar" size picture of the book cover for fun!
**Print sketches and keep your sketches in the Rolodex.

sounds great - but I won't get mine completed until later in September.

If anyone is interested in the birthday rolodex (the unaltered one above - garden type papers - I will be altering one) - I will be doing a ustream class on 8/8/2012 at 7 cst. Just click to my website and pick the links tab for the direct link. Anyone is welcome - I am still working on camera angles and such, so it is have fun - maybe learn something? Maybe not Flapper

JCI -- noted the changes in the swap. Rolodex swaps are one of my favorite as they something charming to have on my desk. I am trying to have my desk look pretty instead of like a catch-all. It makes me feel more creative and I don't get so messy and unorganized. Thanks for hosting Rhonda. Can't wait to see what you'll come up with for your next swap. You have great ideas.

This is going to be my next priority. I still need to go buy the cards but have an idea how to i want to embellish them. I hope they are as good in real life as they are in my head.

Rhonda where did you find the holder ? I ALWAYS like seeing what other create and would love to see the ones from your past swap.
