I had the pleasure of being in a LOTW-Letter Of The Word swap hosted by stopnstare07 and it was a blast!!! So while she is taking a break from hosting, I will be hosting a Summer themed LOTW swap and Scrapbooksusie will be hosting a vacation themed swap, check her out too! Letter of the word swaps can be used for scrapbook page titles, mini albums or whatever your creativity comes up with!!
You must use some type of die cut system (Grand Calibur, Sillouhette, Cricut, Cuttlebug, etc) to cut out ONE LETTER of a word as many times as there are letters in the word. For example, if the word is Summer and you picked the S, then you would make and embellish 6 of the letter "S" since there are 6 letters in that word. Someone else will sign up for the other letters and do the same. When you get them back you will have the word Summer! Each letter made and embellished by a different person, so the words are sure to be phenomenal!! The number of letters you have to make is listed next to each word.
Each letter/object must be no smaller than 1.5 inches and no bigger than 2.5 inches from top to bottom and no more than 2.5 inches from side to side . I will do all of my letters as stand alone letters so you ladies can shine with your creativity on your letters!!! If you're going to have a stand alone letter, please remember to make it within the size stated. If you matte the letter or put it on a thematic item/die cut/shape, the total size for the item cannot be larger than 2.5 inches. If you have the first letter of the word, please make sure it is also capitalized.
*NO FLAKERS NO FLAKERS NO FLAKERS NO FLAKERS NO FLAKERS NO FLAKERS*
If there's any doubt about being able to finish this swap, please DO NOT sign up! If you need to drop out, no worries, just let me know and I will angel your spot and your record with me will remain flake free!
DUE DATE: April 6th, 2012-Must be on time or your letters will be sent back...not fair to have everyone else wait.
Bag each set of letters in a separate bag (per word) and include a piece of paper inside of the bag with your screen name and word on it. Please have them in the mail no later than April 1st to make it to me on time. You can add extra stamps in your package or PayPal me at firstname.lastname@example.org, (that's an underscore after my name/before the 33) the amount that you paid to send in your package, whichever is easiest for you.
