Let's Make Layout Title, Pieces and Parts SWAP

I have been wanting to do this one for a while. I have been participating in swaps for over a year, but haven't hosted one, now it's time.

DUE DATE: November 15, 2010 (EXTENDED by 2 WEEKS)

DESCRIPTION: It's expensive to mail 12x12 layouts through the mail. The idea here is to create all the parts of a layout except for the background papers. For instance, you could create several Cricut cuts, several double mats, a tag, and a title, using coordinated theme and colors. The receipent would use all these pieces to make a 2 page layout for their photos.

At a minimum, your submission must include (to fit and fill a 2-page layout):

5 sets total of the theme you choose, each set bagged in clear baggie (OK if title doesn't fit)
1) A Title -- layered, glittered, fancy lettering, end-caps, letters/icons combo ---- the list is endless.
2) Minimum 2 (two) photo mats - double, triple layered, decorated, fancy cut, titled, ribbon, inked, etc.. Use a combo of sizes 4x6, 5x7, etc.
3) 3 (Three) Cricut cuts minimum - embellished with ink, pens, Stickles, layers, charms, ribbon, etc. Can all be from same cart or mixture of carts.
4) One added surprise --- stickers, tag, journaling box, border, corners, a 3-D effect, etc. Not everything has to be the same, as I know it is hard to get 5 of something.


I have a supply of envelopes to use to return your SWAP. You should include stamps in the amount used to send your submission, plus 2 stamps. I will return any extra postage.

EXAMPLE ATTACHED: The attachments are a single set of what your submission would look like. My "extra" is a strip of school related icons that can be cut up or used as a border. (this is not what I would use exactly - I just quickly made it up as an example.)


Themes will be:


Winter:
1. crystalslate RECVD 10/30/10
2. scraprageous RECVD 11/17/10
3. Michelle Blackwell- Angel, RECVD 11/15/10

BTT.

Sounds like fun

I would like to do Winter and Outdoors for sure

Question regarding sports: General sports would be fun as well - however - would it be possible to indicate which sports you would use? Example - I don't have anyone in football or baseball, but I do have swimmers and hockey players. I wouldn't mind creating for a specific person.

In regards to the sports theme, if interested, could we just specify the sport we will do. That way we will ensure a variety of sports are represented. Should we decide to do sports, I'm in and would pick baseball. thanks!

hi all,

I have extended the due date until November 15 for this swap. Hopefully we can get a few more ladies to join.

Tried PMing a few of you who already signed up, but got an error message...... will try later.

Hi

Since this is moved a few weeks and it looks as if I may be on my own in Outdoors Huh Can I

Change outdoors to Fall/Thanksgiving
and add to one more group? Where ever you need someone is fine - I would use any of the themes.

I have been a lurker on the cricut boards for a while, but not a very active member. I didn't realize that there were swaps on the cricut boards so that may change now. I would love to take your last Christmas spot if you will allow me too. I have participated in numerous swaps on other boards. I have participated in a swap very similar to this and have attached the work samples below. Just so you don't think I am a flaker/inexperienced. Let me know if you don't mind a newbie and I will get started on my spots right away. Just for clarification to make sure I am correct. I would make 5 similar Christmas sets (2 photo mats, 3 cricut cuts, title and one extra), one is for me and the other 4 for the people in my group? Then I mail all five sets in and will get one of my own back/plus 4 different Christmas sets from my other group memebers? Just want to make sure I am doing everything right if you will have me. Thanks

Hi

I have updated the listing and removed a few where we did not have enough participants.

I have PM'd a few people and am hoping to fill the last slots.

thanks for rearranging.
