This will be a monthly tag swap, with each month having TWO themes you may sign up for.
One theme for the month will ALWAYS be the birthstone associated with that month, so you should create a tag using only the birthstone color(s).

The other theme will vary. You may sign up for both as long as you can honor the commitment.

Signs up will CLOSE March 5th

Important Swap Guidelines and Instructions:

The tags must be ABOUT - NOT EXACTLY 4X6. Shipping tags are usually 3 3/8 x 6, Sizzix dies are around 3 1/2x6 and you can cut them on your Cricut, or hand cut them with your trimmer) and be made out of cardboard, heavy cardstock or chipboard.

The due date will be the 25th of each month. That means in my hands by the 25th, please.
First due date: March 25th.
(note: I moved the DD back a few days. From the last swap, people have had a hard time getting them to me on time, which may have been due to the holiday on the 20th. I'm willing to give everyone the benefit of the doubt. HOWEVER: Please note the due date, and respect it.

Materials :

Good quality materials are required. You must use AT LEAST 3 embellishments. This includes, but is not limited to: inking, distressed edges, ribbon, charms, bling, stickles, glitter, etc. Please use lots of embellishments and make each tag a work of art in and of itself. Include as many mediums as you like. This is the time to really let your creativeness shine. Paper selection and color should follow the color theme of the month.

To try and keep this flaker free, you will only need to create 4 tags, and in return- you will get 4 tags. After a month or two, if you guys want, we can up it to more tags, if you want to get more in return.

If you have not made good on your other swaps, please do not sign up. Life happens...I know! So, if your life starts HAPPENING, then let me know so I know not to look for your tags!

Mailing them in:
Bag them individually in small ziploc bags, or something similar. Please write or staple a piece of paper with your name, sb.com name AND category the tag is in, onto the bag. That way I know who did what.
Please send the exact amount of postage it took to send your tags, PLUS 3 extra stamps. I will return any extra postage. *Some tags may be heavier, or have more embellishing, causing the return postage to be more.*
Please send them in a bubble mailer so I can re-use it. If you do not have a bubble mailer, please be sure to send an extra envelope for your return tags. Also include in your package a peice of cardstock with your return address on it. It will make things must faster on my end.

Check-ins are required each week. If you have not checked in, I will message you to ascertain your status. If I have tried to contact you a couple times and I do not hear from you after 2 weeks, I will assume that you no longer wish to participate.

Last but not least, HAVE FUN!!!

For those who join...I was also thinking about not making a size requirement per se...just atleast 2x2. What would you think of that?

I have a bunch of precut tags that are 3.5 x 2.5. Would that be to small?

You can do smaller tags. I think I'm going to change it so the tags are atleast 2"x3". I would like to do some smaller tags to use in mini albums & other things
