    3. Create 6 layered embellishments for your partner.
    4. IMPORTANT; PLEASE NOTE. If you and your partner would like
    to create other themes for your embellishments, that's fine.
    As long as you both agree. For Example: 2 Valentine, 2 shabby, 2 vintage.

  • Star77
    Hello, I am in on this one.
    take care Donna
  • Eapipkin
    I'm in for USA. Personally, I would prefer to make a variety, not just Valentine's day theme.
  • Bonprof
    Welcome Darlene and Elizabeth!!
  • Krizzy05
    This looks fun. I'll need to go check what RB products I have in my craft room to see if I will be able to pull something together. I'm hoping to join in the fun this month.
  • LauralsAttic
    Do you have any examples? Not sure what you mean by embellishments. Having a DAH moment I guess! Also 6 embellishments with 1 RB product on each of the 6 we make? Just need clarification before I commit.
  • Bonprof
    Laura,
    I was not able to make samples.
    But if you go to Pinterest, you'll find hundreds.
    I can cut and paste some examples tomorrow.
    Hope this helps.

    1 RB embellishment for the whole swap is fine.
    You don't have to have 6 RB products.
  • Ppilgrim
    Hmmn, I'll have to have a think about this. I'm sure I can do it, and I'm definitely in, I just need to check my stash and hit Pinterest for inspiration. This is going to be fun :-)
  • Krizzy05
    I'm trying not to buy any new embellishments until I use up a lot of my stash and I just don't have much RB stuff since it's only sold online. I think I have enough RB products that I can join.
  • Bonprof
    If anyone finds a great embellishment on Pinterest or anywhere please share.
    There are some good ones right here.
  • Bonprof
    Kristine,
    would love to have you!

    Peggy, fun! I hope you can join!
  • Lorilei1971
    okay, I'm looking at Reneabouqets now and wow! I'm in. I would also like to do a variety of V-day and other. I will do international
  • Bonprof
    Welcome Lori!!
  • Sroseberry
    Oh, yeah! Yes, please!
  • Lorilei1971
    I tried using the code yesterday and it didn't work
  • LauralsAttic
    is this what you mean by embellishments? And you never answered about having at least 1 RB on each of 6 items or?
  • Bonprof
    Yes, Laura
    These are great examples.

    If you scroll up, I did say you don't need a RB product on each embellishment.
    Just 1 for the whole group is fine.

    Lori,
    Did you enter your coupon in all CAPS?
    I will send you a message.
  • Bonprof
    Welcome Suzanne!!
  • LauralsAttic
    Count me in. I would Love to join.I was having a Dah moment yesterday. LOL! I checked my stash and and I have plenty to use something on each one. I was fixing to make some embellishments for all the books and journals I am fixing to start on. So great opportunity to do extras! I had bought extra RB stuff for future swaps since you started the swap to build up some stash.
  • KVRLVN
    Hi Everyone!

    I think I'm going to pass this round. 6 is a little overwhelming and time consuming. I have too much going on right now with work to make that kind of commitment. I'll be watching from afar.

    Donna, I hope you are feeling better. Please get some rest.

    Kelly
  • Lorilei1971
    OH. MY. Goodness! I don't know if I can make things this fancy. I'm feeling super intimidated now. :/
  • Krizzy05
    Donna, thanks for clarifying it's only one RB embellishment for the entire set of 6. I thought it was one per embellishment, which I may do anyway. We'll see when the time comes. I already have a few ideas, but will wait to see who my partner is before starting.

    Lori, don't be intimidated! Think of it as an opportunity to challenge yourself and try something different!
  • Bonprof
    Lori,
    We have all different levels of
    Crafters here.
    There are many other examples on Pinterest that
    will inspire you.
  • Bonprof

  • Reneabouquets
    So sorry about that!! For some reason it did not activate when I made it, but it is working now
  • Bonprof
    Hi Renea!!
    Great to see you!!
  • Bonprof
    Kelly, thank you.
    We will miss you.
  • Ppilgrim
    I only need one RB thing for the whole group ?! I think I can do better than that -- I'll try anyway.
  • Bonprof
    Yes, Peggy. That's right!
    Welcome!!

    Lori,
    Welcome!
  • Eapipkin
    I'm so glad Renea posted that example that Brandy Metcalf made. I was going to try to do that also. I have a Pinterest Board entitled Scrapbooking Embellishments that is loaded with ideas. I will try to share so will be back in a minute...
  • Krizzy05
    I don't see an image with Renea's post. I see mention of Brandy but not an image or link. Is she a member here I can search for?
  • Eapipkin

    Welcome Ina!!
  • Catloverarctic
    Thank you happy for the invite
  • Lorilei1971
    Okay so all this stuff I'm seeing is super fancy. Way back in 2014 I was making some hand made embellies for swaps like die cuts (mostly made with my cricut) like this and a couple of others in my gallery. Also I made hand made tags for swaps like this but they look way more simple and I'm not sure my style will work with all the fancy stuff other people are making. Thoughts?
  • Bonprof
    Lori,
    You and your partner can decide what to do.
    Try something new. Practice something you see on Pinterest or YouTube.

  • Krizzy05
    Lori, I agree with Donna that it will really depend on your partner. For example, if planning to use the embellishments in a journal, flatter/less bulky embellishments might be ideal. However, some of us really like the chunky/layered embellishments. Find some examples on pintrest that you like and copy those with your own twist! Above all else, have fun creating little pieces of art for your swap partner!
  • Eapipkin
    Good morning all! Just checking in.
  • Ppilgrim
    'K, I'm done. All I need is an address to mail 'em too
  • Sroseberry
    Me, too, Ppilgrim!!!!!!!!
  • LauralsAttic
    I can not believe yall are already done! I'm still working on the Altered glassine swap. Have not finished my 3rd one. Thought I would stop in to see how everyone is doing.
  • Bonprof
    Peggy and Suzanne,
    How do you know what your partner
    wants if you don't have a partner yet???
