_________________________ _____________________

Basic Instructions:

Checking in weekly, and open communication is vital to the success of our cj. I can not stress enough the importance of checking in once a week on the thread. If there is a problem, and you cant check in, please call me. We will all exchange phone numbers. Each journal MUST be mailed with a Delivery Confirmation Number, which must be posted to the thread the date you mail out, so we can all track the journals when being shipped.

1. Your journal can be no larger than 8 by 8, but can be any shape you wish. The journal may be chipboard or acrylic. Please decorate/ prepare your cj to support the theme you have selected. Please dedicate a TWO PAGE spread for each participant.

* The first page: Please create an instruction page on the very first page of your journal.
* The second page: This should be the sign-in
page for each participant.
* The third & fourth page: This should be your own 2-page entry.

Pages 5/6 and thereafter: Please use a stickynote and write each participants name on one. Place one stickynote on page 5, 7, 9, 11...and so on. This way, when each person receives a journal they know exactly which two pages are dedicated to their layouts.

I wanted to incorporate a traveling "quilt" with each journal. I thought this might be a creative way to obtain a picture of our cyber scrap friends. Each person will attach a picture of herself, her message board name, real name, and the state/city she lives in.

Everyone can make a quilt, ( I am going to use a piece of fabric as my foundation for my quilt...it will fold quite easily) dedicating one square per person in the CJ. (Your squares can be chipboard decorated with patterned paper and embellished) Fold it up and place it in a zip lock bag, and mail it with your journal.


2. All quilts should be able to fold up and fit into a zip lock bag to travel with your book. Needs to be large enough to accommodate a square for each participant of the swap.

3. Our mail date will always be the last week each month. This means we will have three weeks to complete a journal/quilt once received.


OK....once signups are complete....then MORE INFO WILL BE FORTHCOMING.........STAY TUNED!!!!

I'm in...

My topic will be either the postcard/hometown or the bucket list, I still have to decide....

I have no objection to all the people in the CJ having my personal info as long as it isn't given out to other people without my consent.

I'm here too...I'm a little confused on how the quilt will work though. Do we sew fabric squares together and send that for people to "embellish" or do we send chipboard squares? Do you have a picture of what you have in mind by chance?

I also have no objection to the people in the circle having my personal info, as long as it's not distributed outside the group.

Another question, since I've never done one of these before. Will there be a "schedule" made up of who is sending to whom and when? That way I don't get like 3 albums at once and have to have all the LOs done in 2 weeks.

no problem with giving my info to the group I think everyone so far already has it anyway, LOL. The quilt sounds great just need instructions a little clearer but I know Christa will give great insturctions for us to follow, I have found her to be thorough.

YES, there will be a schedule of mailing dates posted. As for the quilt, I am strictly using my imagination. I dont have a picture, but I can tell you what I am going to do. I am using a piece of Fabric as my foundation, because it will fold easily and fit in a zip lock bag. Then, I am going to attatch chipboard squares.....cover with patterned paper Then I am going to glue my chipboard squares to the Fabric. Each person in the group will embellish a square, add their picture, and info.

I have a couple ideas on the quilt. One is to use ATC-sized chipboard and just send those around in the baggie. Meanwhile, at home I'll make clear pockets on the quilt that the cards will fit into.

Another is to use paper for the quilt pieces and actually sew them together. Again, I would send them separately in the baggie and attach them to the "quilt" when they are all returned to me.

I'll post when I've decided, or if I come up with any other ideas.

Hey...we have seven reliable ladies....I think this is a nice size group, and may close it. I will accept one more person if she/he desires to participate. Please make sure you get your topics to me before the close date, along with your name, address and phone numbers. I will get a picture posted of my quilt next week. I am going to work on it this weekend.

Thanks so much Christia!!! This sounds like fun and I love the quilt idea too.

Hi Bonnie

I'm thinking maybe something with the 80's for my topic, I have to get my thoughts together.

JCI...

It's great to see Marlene & Renea joining:)

Just an FYI but Micheal's has $1.00 chip board albums in different shapes that would be fantastic for this.
