August Monos/Munchkins/Minis Swap

This swap is for Monos, Munchkins & Minis ……small die cuts or shapes much like inchies, twinchies & trinchies but with a bit of a twist!!

I caught a lot of heat last month for running an Inchie/twinchie/trinchie swap because we weren’t “doing it right”. So to avoid any further confusion or heat I have changed the name of our swap and as a group we have decided to continue on making our nontraditional inchie/twinchies/trinchie s but with a new name monos/munchkins/minis.

Traditional Inchies/Twinchies/Trinchi es are:
Inchie: 1 inch x 1 inch shape of your choice decorated with at least 2 embellishments
Twinchie: 2 inch x 2 inch shape of your choice decorated with at least 3 embellishments
Trinchie: 3 inch X 3 inch shape of your choice decorated with at least 4 embellishments
These are TOTALLY acceptable to make for this swap if that’s how you choose to do yours

or you can make…

Monos/Munchkins & Minis
Monos: 1” shape of your choice decorated with at least 2 embellishments
Munchkins: 2” shape of your choice decorated with at least 3 embellishments
Minis: 3” shape of your choice decorated with at least 4 embellishments

The big difference is that Monos/Munchkins/Minis do not have to be put on a base that is the same height & length (ex. 2” X 2” square). They can be any shape (ex. Grasshopper that is 3” tall but only 2” wide) more like an embellished die cut without a base!!

You can use anything you would like to embellish!! Your imagination is the only limit!! I will tell you that last month we had some AMAZING little treasures that were created!!!

When you are finished with your FABULOUS creations please put your items in a ziplock bag with the name of the swap, group it is for, your scrapbook.com ID and your name.

Include a self addressed envelope with the same amount of postage it took you to send as well as 3 extra stamps (any unused stamps will be returned) I don’t mind reusing envelopes just please make sure to send as much postage as it cost you to send the package plus 3 extra stamps. PLEASE include self addressed label STICKERS if you want me to reuse your envelope.


Due Date is September 1, 2011 PLEASE have them in my hands by that date!!!

Sign ups will be taken until August 15, 2011

I will pm you my mailing address when the swap has closed.

Please check in once a week and if you aren’t going to be able to meet the deadline just let me know as soon as possible so I can fill your spot.

There will be 10 people in each group. Please make 9 to swap ….one per person in your group. You do not need to send the 10th one to me just keep it if you choose to make one for yourself.

***If your group doesn't completely fill up***
You only need to send enough so that there is one for each person...not all 9. Ex. If you are in a group with 6 other people because its not full you only need to send 6 of the items you have made and keep the 7th one for yourself. There is no sense in paying for postage for items that will just be returned to you. Just keep track of how many are in your group. I will send you a pm when the swap closes to let you know how many ended up being in your group if it didn't fill up.


If a group fills up I will open a B group.
If you have any questions just ask this group of ladies is so wonderful, helpful & fun!!

Thanks so much for participating!! Have fun!!!!

Np ladies!

So here's a wedding update:
26 days left!!! Yikes!
We did a walk through of the property to figure out where we want flowers and where I'll be walking down from! We also have the flower girls baskets made (my mom made them) Getting my ring picked up today, brian should be getting his on the weekend.
Still can't decide how I want the cake though!

I can't believe I didn't save this to my favorites and I started panicking because I know I was here before and ok, deep breath, I'm ok now. I saved it this time!
