Sign ups close: 12/31
Pals out: 1/1
Kits received by your partner by: 2/7


The 12 Days of Swapping Christmas swap was such a hit…..I figured let’s do it again!

Max 2 spots per person. I will accept partner requests, however, you may not have the same person you had last round. You may want to send me a list in order of preference in case I can’t give you the person you requested.



7 Days of Swapping
($35 gift swap)

This will be a secret pal swap and you will not be made to have the same person that has you – that way everyone still has the ability to request who they want.

You will send your pal 7 gifts total – all scrapbooking related. Each is wrapped separately and must be have a tag marked with the date your pal is to open it. Your tags can be simple or elaborate (it’s up to you), but must contain at least 1 technique or embellishment and be obviously valentine related. For instance, a die cut heart stamped with the date would be fine…or you can go crazy with even more techniques or embellies. You mail them all together along with a handmade Valentine’s Day card.

You must mail your pals package so that they receive it by February 7th (very important).

On February 8th your pal will open their handmade card and their first gift labeled for that date.
Then on February 9th they will open their next gift (labeled with that date).
Each day they will continue to open the gift labeled for that date up until February 14th when they open their last and biggest gift.
This why your pal must have their package by 2/7

Each day everyone will hopefully post what they received as their gift for that day.

All items must be storebought, from your pals wishlist/survey, be scrapbooking related and be new/unused. No goodie bags are allowed – all NIP.

The total value of the first 6 gifts (2/8-2/13) must be a minimum total retail value $25.

The gift(s) that your pal opens on Valentine’s Day must be worth at least $10 retail. (all NIP and storebought)

Any additional handmades or gifts (scrapbooking related or not) are optional/extra…but who doesn’t like to be spoiled? Stay away from dollar stores to be safe. Don’t be cheap. Follow your pals wishlist(s) and survey for items that count towards the minimum requirements. The best way to make your pal happy is to follow their wishlist – can’t go wrong there!


Mailing
Your handmade card must be in an envelope for your pal to open.
Each days gifts must be individually wrapped, have a tag attached and labeled with the date to open (8-14).
All of these items must be mailed in one box to your partner.
Package your items well so that they arrive in one piece to your partner.
Your partner must receive it by 2/7. Don’t cut it too close!!!
You must purchase a Delivery Confirmation number for the package.


You must post:
• at least once a week (check in), and
• when you receive your kit

Hopefully you will also post what you opened each day.




My Swap Motto: if it’s not sold in the scrapbooking section of a scrapbooking/craft store or on sb.com – don’t bother sending it in. You should only send in high quality items for my swaps.

Okay, check your pm’s shortly for your pals.

I’d also like to take a moment to emphasize a few of things for this swap.

It seems in several swaps lately I’ve had to play ‘mean hostess’ due to low quality items being sent, minimums not being met, people not receiving items on their wishlist in wishlist only swaps, people substituting something on a wishlist with a low quality alternative, etc. So……..just a few reminders…….

1no one likes a cheap pal. Do not send anyone something from the dollar store, a brand sold in dollar stores, low end items, stuff from your stash you don’t want, anything that looks like it came from the dollar store or any store that isn’t for scrapbooking!!!! If your pal said in their survey that they like dollar store stuff, or they like Miss Elizabeth brand, etc - then that’s fine. Just because someone says, “I’d love anything”…. doesn’t necessarily mean they would be fine with dollar store stuff. I do buy some dollar store stuff for myself – so I use it at times. But I would never send any in a swap (or any other off brand, low quality item, etc). A good guide for brands is those sold here on sb.com or other high-end scrap book stores.

2 - Everything you send your pal that counts towards the minimum must be NIP. You are welcome to send extra goodies (storebought or handmade, scrapbooking related or not), but it is not required and does not count towards the minimum. I highly recommend following your pal’s wishlist for most/all of their goodies – after all, that’s why it is there. That’s the best way to please them. But of course you can use their survey to help you shop – just be sensible about it.

3 – You must meet the minimum! If you want/can spoil your pal with more, then you are welcome to do so. But do not expect the same in return as not everyone can spend over all the time. But you should expect to receive high quality items.

4 – Remember that the last gift must be a minimum of $10 retail. The other 6 gifts must total at least $25. If you choose to spend more on days 1-6 does not mean day 7’s gift can be less than $10.

I have a question. If I have over 7 gifts, do I wrap some of them together?

you can wrap/give more than one item for a day. You could make the extra item(s) something they can open up early...whatever you want to do. As long as there are 7 days of gifts, the first 6 days add up to a minimum of $25, the last day is a minimum of $10, they are all NIP, they are all storebought, they are all scrapbooking related, they are all high quality and they all follow your pals wishlist or survey.

Anything over that can be goodies bags, non scrapbooking, not from their wishlist, handmade...whatever. You can add those extra items to any of the 7 days, let them open them early, attach them to the outside of the package with the tag.........it's up to you. After the minimum the sky is the limit.
