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 !! Woot Wub


PETS
GIRLS NIGHT OUT
GARDENING
SCHOOL TEACHER and/or SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER
COOKING or BAKING
THANK YOU
EASTER
MOTHER'S DAY
FRIENDSHIP
BIRTHDAY (adult or child)

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 reccommend 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. 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 2/11-Monday night and then assign partners on Tuesday 2/12 . You will then have until St Patrick's Day (March 17th ) to craft and mail your items.

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



Who wants to join in the fun ?? Woot Wub

Denise


I have both a son and a daughter, but most of the children I know are girls, so I'd lean slightly towards that. It doesn't really matter though, it'll get used either way!

And bags are great!

I just want to clarify... 2 Mother's day cards and 2 birthday bags? Can they be similar? Or will your sisters compare? Wink

Hi Evelyn it's your partner Penny. I would love to do Pets and gardening for you. Do you want bags or boxes? Do You have any color preference or any color you hate?

I would love a friendship and adult female birthday. Bags and tags, as for colors I am not a fan of orange but only by itself mixed with other colors or as an accent is fine. Otherwise you're open to being as creative as you would like.

Can't wait to get started and learn more about you.

CricutCrazy, I am so sorry to hear that you are feeling bad. It seems like this has been a bad winter, health wise on the MB. I know my household was hit several times. Take care of yourself.

Birthday Bags and cards sound great to me.

Things have been extremely crazy this week. After tomorrow I think we will be back to normal chaos.

To be honest, while I know I love them equally, I am closer to my younger sister then I am the older one. I like to say I am the rose between 2 thorns. LOL My youngest sister lives like minutes from me, literally....there is even a cut through from my development to hers that my nephews uses all the time to come hang out with my boys.

Meeting new nephews is awesome. I have a great nephew that was born the end of September but have yet to meet him despite the fact that they live 15 minutes away. Sad to say my niece is allowing baby daddy to dictate the rules....at least I get to see him on Facebook. Had to go with my brother in law to have their dog put down tonight. She had a stroke on Wednesday and was unable to move at all Thursday. My sister just had a discectomy and could not go.
Got your first bag done, the teacher one. Turned out cute, if I do say so myself.

Hi everyone -- sorry I have been MIA. It's time to get busy though I see. Wow, I am so excited to have 2 lovely partners. I love this swap can you tell? LOL.

Well, Penny I hope I haven't put you too far behind - I think your question was would I like tags or boxes and tags for me please (but if you started something else - I am all for a surprise). thank you for your patience. I will be a good girl for the rest of this swap.

Barb -- I see you and I have teamed up on one. This is the first time we have been partners. Wow. I am really having fun with this one. I love the choices too.

We need to keep having these as I am almost out again. Everytime I turn around, someone is getting a gift from me and I only give gift bags. No wrapping for this girl. Uh Uh. No way.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Just checking in for the week. My theory of things calming down this week went flying out the window. Mainly because hurt myself last Friday and I had some difficultly getting around earlier this week.Blink Things are much better and was able to spend some time crafting the last couple of days. one bag done, the front of the other complete. This swap is progressing nicelyBigGrin

Happy Friday night ladies !
Evelyn, so nice to hear from you and I am excited to trade bags with you too! !! I hope to continue this swap as I also use a lot of gift bags and they are fun to make up.
I have just found a supplier for nice bags in black, white, and bright colors and if we get them by the dozen they are really cheap. If anyone is interested, let me know what colors you want and we can get an order together for them. I just got a dozen in black because it is my favorite base and they are very hard to find in the stores.
I love hearing about all the new babies !! I am so jealous !! I want a baby to play with that I can send home at the end of the day (nephew, niece, grandbaby....any will do !! ) LOL Love
Denise, I have your prize all redy to mail out tomorrow...I hope you will enjoy it.
Laura, I am sorry to hear you got hurt...I hope it is not serious....take care !

Okay - so it looks as though some of us may be mailing early...that is WAY COOL !!
