Ladies something I forgot to add to this information is mailing information!

I am all for mailing the cheapest way possible, but remember you will want to make sure your partner receives their beautiful creation you are sending. With this said, when the time comes to mail, contact your partner by PM and get their contact info. Then I recommend sending it the least expensive way that you can get tracking on it. Once you have a tracking number, please post it in the thread for your partner to see.

Something else PLEASE NO FLAKERS. If you are making the commitment to do this swap, please follow through. I know circumstances come up where sometimes they prevent us from keeping commitments, but if at all possible, finish what you start!BigGrin If you aren't able you please withdraw before I assign partners. Thanks in advance. I have swapped with most of you before and know you will all do excellently.


I thought it would be fun to post this swap and see if there is any interest. I would like to make this a fun swap with no drama. We don't usually have to worry about that on this swap. You will create an album in your partners specific colors or theme.

I put an Altered Toilet Paper Roll Album, but if you would rather do paper towel rolls, that's fine too. I actually prefer the paper towel rolls because you have more paper with which to create..

When I first saw this swap last year, I was skeptical as to whether I would like doing it, but as I watched tutorials and then did albums, I became excited at how fun these are and how creative you can be. They can be simple with simple pages and tags in the pockets created by the roll or you can add foldouts and books that open inside them. It's your choice!! It is just that easy!

Altered Toilet Paper Roll Tutorial

Toilet Paper Roll Mini Tutorial

There are many more tutorials on YouTube
.

The rules of the swap are:

1. There needs to be weekly check ins. The more we contact each other the closer we can be as a group.
2. It has to have an embellished front and back cover.
3. It has to have a minimum of 3 pages plus the front and back cover.
4. It has to be in the color or theme your partner wants.
5. All participants must have a specific theme listed and/or an MQ filled out for their partner to review. (I would prefer the MQ as it
gives your partner more ideas from which to choose.)
6. All participants MUST have FUN!!!LOL Love
7. It has to be bound together in some way, you choose!! (You might want to find a You Tube video of a new way to bind and try that
out for your partner
.


Ladies please do your best work. Make something you would be proud to give a family member as a present or for a holiday.

Everyone will need to send me a PM with their contact info. BigGrin

So, who wants to Join!! I will be closing signup on May 2nd.

I am giving people ample time to sign up and I figured about 2 months to complete the album. Albums will need to be mailed on
July 2nd.ThumpUp Woot

I am really hoping some of you ladies will join me in this swap!

love how your toilet roll albums look. Just a question which might seem a bit odd but what colour are your toilet roll middles when you start with them before painting . most of ours in the uk are a grey stiff card so when painted and then try to flatten they rip. would love to try this with my brownies if they all had 4 each with the tags that would be enough for them to fill in . any comments / advice would help .

Well the TP rolls here are a thin, paper board that is a brownish color. They are not very stiff at all. If your paper towel rolls are thinner, you can use those. I actually prefer paper towel rolls because they are a little longer. I cut them in half and you can get 2 rolls out of one tube. I don't know what to tell you about your TP rolls. You may not be able to do this swap if you can't get them to flatten out without tearing.

Something I saw on YouTube recently is someone using ink on their rolls instead of paint. I think I am going to try that technique this time.

We would love to have you join in, but if you do, I will need your contact information.

Thanks for the interest prentontawnyowld!BigGrin

I would like to play too. I've started 2 or 3 and almost finished but with no recipient in mind I haven't quite. I will make a brand new one for this swap. They are fun to make. I have never painted or inked them just inked around the edges of paper so it would look more finished. I like tea related items and/or flowers. Will PM you my additional info.

Let's Play, Carol K.

Maybe after the swap is closed but before you assign partners we can PM you the requests we know we won't be able to grant... say someone wants a Disney themed album and someone else doesn't have any Disney cartridges, they can PM you and let you know.

That's a great idea. I already had someone do that. Once the swap is closed, if there is something that you cannot do, feel free to PM me. Remember you don't have to use Cricut cartridges exclusively. This is about being creative with what you have, but if you want to use this as a reason or excuse to get a new cart, don't let me stop you.BigGrin BigGrin

I would like a mini birthday album with room for me to insert a gift card! I will be using it in place of a card! It will be for my daughter who will be 28. She is a mother of a 1 year old boy and a 3 year old girl...she loves shabby chic with vintage flowers and such. I will be putting a few pictures of her children in the book!

It has been a while since I did one of these...plus the July date is perfect - so sign me up Donna.

I would like a "seashore" themed album for my sister-in-law who loves to go to Myrtle Beach...Or if that won't be possible, then anything in the "SISTER" theme would be fine.


For anyone who wonders about getting some good quality paper rolls, you can purchase nice ones from OrientalTrading.com and since they are nice and new Blushing and didn't come from KM's bathroom Scared then you can know they are safe .LOL

I buy different brands of papers, and some are white rolls inside and some are grey and some are brownish. I do not know why, but Florida must be the land of varied paper colors ! Love

As far as what I can create for someone else, I will make a valiant attempt to do whatever kind of album they want.....results are up to the "gods" ...so they must promise not to throw me in a volcano if it doesn't turn out well OhMyGod Razz

Toilet paper rolls are not all created equal, lol We use same brand almost always. We saved some and all from same package. The first 3 I checked were different, all three were different heights. Thank heaven we save them all the time so I have some all the same. How funny to be talking toilet paper rolls.
