I will be co-hosting with Toni(tcletoaddison) this round. You will send your letters to her.

This is a WINTER/HOLIDAY themed Letter Of The Word swap, or LOTW. These swaps are so fun! Each swapper will create a different letter of a WINTER/HOLIDAY themed word. You choose one letter in the word and make the # of letters that make up that word. FOR EXAMPLE: if the word is SNOW, and you chose the letter "N"- then you would make 4 "Ns" total. Toni will swap all the letters out when she receives them and you will get back the completed words!!! Colors are listed so they will coordinate and the finished words can be used on layouts, mini's, cards, wall hangings, altered items ...virtually anything you can think of!

I will accept sign ups until December 14th, unless words fill up before that. NO FLAKERS!

All letters are DUE TO TONI BY JANUARY 19, 2013.
This gives you close to 10 weeks to get these letters done and sent in on time. The holidays shouldn't get in the way since it's not due until a few weeks afterward. If something comes up and you can't participate any longer, PLEASE let us know so we can make appropriate changes. As long as you let us know in advance before the due date that you can't finish your spots, you won't be considered a flaker.

If you don't check in or respond to any PMs about checking in then I will angel your spots. If you haven't checked in within a week from the due date and I can't get ahold of you then I will angel your spots. PLEASE CHECK IN!

***RULES***
1.) You MUST USE some type of die cut system (sillouhette, cricut, cuttlebug, etc.) to cut out your chosen letter of a word. EXAMPLE: You sign up for "S" in Santa, you will cut 5 capital S's and decorate them following the chosen color scheme. You must embellish your letters according to theme also. Once swapped out, you will receive the entire word Santa back, each letter being created and embellished by a different swapper.

2.) The first letter of each word MUST be capitalized. So if you have the "S" in Santa or the "C" in Christmas, they must be capitalized. No stand alone letters for the first letter of a word. Please embellish the first letter of the word nicely so it stands out, as it sets the tone for the rest of the word. All other letters within the word can be lower or uppercase.

3.) FOLLOW SIZE SPECIFICATIONS:

NEW RULE: Due to having a hard time fitting some letters onto layouts because of the length, I will be changing the size requirements a bit......

**For words that are 8 letters or longer, please make your letters between 1.25" and 2"

**For words with 7 letters or less, the size requirement is 1.5"-2.5". Most participants stick with approx. 2".


If you are going to have a stand alone letter, please remember to make it within the size specifications and matte the letter. All letters, matting, and background shapes must follow the overall size restrictions and color schemes.

4.) EMBELLISHMENT SPECIFICATIONS:
After cutting out your letter, please use a variety of techniques and/or embellishments to make them stand out. (Ex: ink, stickles, gems, ribbon, flowers, brads, eyelets, etc). It is not expected that each letter be a "super star" but please use your best judgement in the finishing touches. If your letter stands alone you must matte it with a shadow.

Each word has a color scheme so that they will coordinate and look nice together. They also need to be made within the appropriate theme. For example, you would not incorporate a pig die cut into your letter P for the word play...that just doesn't match. You could, however, use a ball, or a slide, etc. Please adhere strictly to the color scheme and theme of the word.

5.) LABEL YOUR LETTERS!!!!!!!!
I can not stress this enough! When you have finished your letters, put each set of letters in a separate baggie and label with your screen name, the letter and what WORD it is for. If there are multiple groups of the same word, please list which group it is for. This is SO IMPORTANT! It makes the swapping process less confusing and therefore easier to swap out.

Label Example: silver26AK
M= Christmas group #2


6.) CHECK IN WITH US! Please check in at least once every 2 weeks, more often as the due date nears. Let us know where you are at in the creating process. If something comes up in your life (because it does happen), don't feel bad and don't stress yourself out. If you need to leave the swap just let us know before the due date arrives, that way we can make sure your spots are covered. Also let us know when you have mailed your letters.


For examples of letters I've done check out my Gallery, you can also search LOTW in the Main gallery and you will probably find plenty of inspiration. Many of the ladies in this swap also have amazing examples in their galleries as well.

***YOU WILL BE MAILING YOUR LETTERS TO TONI (tcletoaddison) ***

** I highly recommend that you use delivery confirmation on your letters when mailing. It's just a little bit extra $ but can save you from a headache when mailing. Most of the ladies that swap send their packages with a delivery confirmation #. Also, don't forget to send enough postage for return shipping. You can PM Toni about using paypal for sending postage $.

I know you want to keep the words to a minimum but would you open to adding "BAKING" if there were others interested? Its fine if you dont, I will just make it myself but thought they may be others doing a traditional baking day.

Ok, I think I have everyone updated. Welcome ladies!!

Artesha we are glad to have you. I'm sure you will become addicted to these swaps just as we are, haha. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask me or any of the ladies on the thread.

A couple of groups already filled, including the 2013 (black, white and silver). So I opened a 3rd group, but that's the limit on that particular word(number). I think 3 groups per word is enough, I don't want to make it too hard for Toni. So that brings our overall word count to 37.... (I will drop words that aren't filling after awhile).

Squirmy'sMom would like to add the word "Baking" to the list. Is there any more interest in that one? If so, what colors would everyone like?

can you open another Joy; my posts seem to be just a few minutes behind Scrappinlily and we're on the same track. If you open a third Joy, I'd like the "J".
