HELLO EVERYONE !! I am closing membership for this swap this Wednesday night at Midnight EST.

This is a partner swap. You will design and make 2 Gift Bags with a matching Tag that must be at least 2 " x 4" - matching greeting cards are optional

If you have not been in any my swaps in the past few months, you will need to PM me with your name, address, email and a phone # as well. This is only for my records. If you have recently moved, please update your information with me.

YOU will choose from the following themes on this Round. Post your Choices on your FIRST POST please.
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 !! The more embellishments and BLING you can use the better !!

SELECT TWO (2) of the FOLLOWING DESIGN THEMES and POST ON YOUR FIRST POSTING:

WINTER WONDERLAND
MY FUNNY VALENTINE (try to mail these early if possible)
TEA FOR TWO
LIFE IS JUST A BOWL OF CHERRIES ( to honor Washington's birthday !)LOL
CHOCOHOLIC'S DELIGHT
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BFF
THANKFUL FOR YOU
THE TREE OF LIFE
I LOVE MY KITTY
I LOVE MY PUPPY
I LOVE MY PET (specify what kind of pet you have)
CRAZY ABOUT YOU !!
MY POT O' GOLD AT THE END OF THE RAINBOW ( St.Patty's Day theme)

REQUIREMENTS : Contact your partner promptly and stay in touch
Check in on this thread AT LEAST once per week and leave a posting other than "JCI" .

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 .
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.

Send your item with a TRACKING NUMBER and POST THE tracking# 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 recommend using plain , uncoated paper bags in any color. 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 can be any appropriate size (2"x4" at least) that can be tied to the bag. It should have a reinforced tag hole and a nice long ribbon or twine tie so that it can be hung onto a package. I am constantly getting tags that have a 3-4" tie on them and I like them longer 8-10" works better for tying into a bow.

You will then have until FEBRUARY 7th to craft and mail your items so they are RECEIVED BY FEBRUARY 14th - If your partner wants a Valentine bag, please try to send it earlier.

Please sign up quick so we can get started ASAP !!

Ok Barb (CricutCrazy), you twisted my keyboard... I'd love to join this swap.
It has been a little over a year since my last swap, due to having a baby and not wanting to over-commit. This one is perfect - 2 gift bags, and a month to finish :)

Barb - I will PM my info to you as soon as I post this.

To my partner - I would like bags with the follwing themes:

Life is just a Bowl of Cherries
Chocoholic's Delight

Excited to see who our partners are tomorrow!

Hi Madhatter !!!!! Looking forward to getting to know you and creating your bags. Do you have a particular age\ gender you would like me to create ?

For mine, I could use anything male or female for ages 8 to grandparents. The themes I chose are just suggestions. I LOVE surprises. If you have a good idea for another theme , go for it. BigGrin

My oldest son is going back to college on Sunday . I am amazed how quickly his winter break went by. Seems like the holidays flew by this year.

On the positive side, my husband and I are going to see The Blue Man Group on saturday. We have never seen them before and I hear they are great.

Hope everyone has a great weekend

Laura

Hey Beverly,

Looking forward to creating for you. We both requested "Two for Tea". I love, love going to tea. Also glad I haven't put all my holiday/winter papers and such away. What are your favorite colors?

Have a good weekend, Carol

I'm excited that partners have been assigned, and we can start creating for this swap!

Just got up a little early this morning and thought I would check in. I have been working on swaps for another board so I have not tackled this one yet. I an waiting to hear from madhatter to know what age group to make these for.

Trying to get back into normal routine this week. Everyone is back at school or work. Regular activities are back on. However the kids have a half day on friday and off on Monday.

I'm not picky. Any color scheme is fine with me. Do you have any preferences?
