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

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!!

Examples for MMM Swap! By Scrap Princess72010

You can use anything you would like to embellish!! Your imagination is the only limit!!

When you are finished with your FABULOUS creations please put your items in a zip lock bag with the name of the swap, group it is for, your scrapbook.com ID and your name.
Ex. Monos Anything Goes (ATG) Group A

PLEASE make sure to put your name on the back of each piece that you make so when someone uses it they can thank you!!!


MUST READ UPDATE:

To make it easier at the post office unless you are basically signed up for one or two groups and send a smaller envie please send 1.95 in postage, plus 2 stamps just in case. I don't think that any envie would be over three oz. but that is a just in case. My post office says all the envies cost 1.95 to send as long as they are under 3 oz.
Include a self-addressed envelope.(any unused stamps will be returned) I don’t mind reusing envelopes as long as they are in good shape, self-addressed label so I can send it back to you. If you are in several groups I would recommend a padded envelope or small box so that your stuff doesn’t get squished in route to you.

Due Date is May 1, 2012 PLEASE have them in my hands by that date!!!

Sign-ups will be taken until April 15, 2012


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, we all understand life happens.

There will be 7 people in each group. 6 of your items will be swapped ….one per person in your group. PLEASE send all 7…..the extra item will be saved and put aside to be used to fill in when a group doesn’t fill all the way up.

One name will be drawn each month from all the names of the people who got their package to me by the due date. The winner will receive a special MMM from everyone and be able to choose one category/theme for a group the following month. Post marks DO NOT count…..your package must be in my hands by the due date in order to have your name put into the drawing.

If you have any questions just ask this group of ladies is so wonderful, helpful & fun!!
Each theme will have its own set of groups instead of the Monos, Munckins, & Minis having the groups I am going to do it by theme, so it will be a little less confusing for me. ( I hope the change doesn’t bother anyone.) I will add on Groups as we go and each group fills up. We will still be only filling up to Group C. Once that group is full the theme will be closed.

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

******PLEASE READ******


The due date each month is the 1st

If your package is not here by the first or does not arrive by the afternoon of 3rd you will not be included in that months swap. Your name will be removed from the group list and I will do my best to fill in that spot with the extra items I have been collecting so that the group is still "full".

If you know you're not going to make it by the due date just let me know, I know stuff happens and it’s not a big deal....You can just keep your package and use it for the following month. If I receive your package after everything has been swapped and mailed on the 4th I will give you the option of having your package returned to you (package denied - return to sender) or I will keep it and use it for the following months swap.

If you have any questions, input or think there’s a better way to do this please feel free to let me know I am always open to hearing your thoughts and ideas.

Thanks for understanding and making this swap go smoothly!!


Changes Made!!

Also, we are starting to make one extra special MMM of your choice for the winner. It can be any size and any theme you would like. Just make sure that it is in a different baggie so I will know which one to send to the winner.
This month we are also including an anything goes group with a color theme. Each month I will have a color group as well as the normal ATG groups.

ok, I think if like to join but I need some clarification.let's say I sign up for three of thelisted groups. I make seven embelles per group, plus one special for the drawing, so 22 total? and the seven per group should all loo the same? I can use anything to make these as long a they fit the size and topic of the group?

Welcome. Yes you would make 22. No they do not have to be the same. As long as they all match the theme and size. And you can use anything to make these.

If you have any other questions let me know!

Due to time, usually I make 7 of the same, but decorate them each a little different if the mood strikes me- different colors, etc. It's up to you tho- warning- this is addicting. I'm back after a break due to some family things- but I couldn't resist.

Another question though, in the direction is says munchkins need to have three embellishments....does things like stickles and glimmermist count as an embellishment?

plan to work on these this weekend while I finish cleaning up my scrap area. Things have been moved, then moved again, and again to the point I have so much stuff just layered. Ugh! So I've been peeling off the layers and putting things away properly. It takes longer, but this is now 3-4 months of neglect. I will use making these as a reward to getting my work area cleared.

You can do both, I just got the plate that you can use with the thin dies like spellbinders and things like that I am getting ready to open it up and p,ay around. Trying to find my mojo again! I love it so far, I like it better than my Texture Boutique.

I did some research looking into what the Big Shot verses the Cuttlebug was & could do. I like the compact nature of the Cuttlebug. Space is an issue for me as I have enough stuff as it is. I like the idea of embossed images- since I have my Cricut & can cut all kinds of things & in various sizes- I don't want another machine to cut. I have zero folders and binders that everyone refers to. I had to watch several videos last night to understand how they all worked & the terms. I also like that this device isn't an electric thing to find another outlet for. I also looked at the Big Shot Pro- EXPENSIVE & it doesn't even come with the bed to make it compatible with all the Sizzix products. And it weighs in at 40lbs. YIKES. I figure I'll wait awhile longer before considering to invest in another machine item- where would I put all the plates that go with it? I need to do some major scraproom reorganization & all before I buy something new.

Hi ladies, I just want to make sure I'm reading this all correctly. I understand that the items do not need to be square. However, for the mono's, is 1" the maximum for the longest side? Example: A rainbow 1" long and 1/2" tall would be a mono? Or could it be 2" long and 1" tall? Or if it was 2" long, would it be considered a munchkin?

Sorry, this is my first M/M/M.

I have always read it as as long as one side is 1" it is a mono if it is 1" by 2" then it could be either or.

No they do not have to be square.

You are perfectly fine no need to apologize! We were all new once.

Heck I was only in the group for two months before I took it over.

Okay- in all my time scrapping- I didn't get my other swap items done to even start on these. I scrapped until midnight on Friday & till 2pm on Saturday too. I'm hoping to work on finishing my other swap tonight- tomorrow I have errands to run and stuff- so not sure I'll get to it then.

Denielle- LOVE those rosettes. Absolutely awesome.

Ladies I am so sorry about being MIA! I am back now. Had a lot to deal with in the home life. But things seem to be calming down there. Thank you Jen for pm'in everyone. I didn't even realize it was the end of the month until today! UGH where has the month gone.

Again I can not say how sorry I am for not being able to check in and get you ladies my address. I am glad you guys have it now. I will be able to check in from here on out, providing nothing else happens. Fingers crossed. I will def be on the look out for your packages and let you know as soon as I receive them. I know that I might not be on Monday or Tuesday of next week due to a crazy work schedule.

I got a promotion to Manager at work so on top of home life drama I now have more stress at work. I will be trained on how to open the store on Monday morning and be expected to open it by myself on Tuesday. This should be fun! This also means getting up and being at work before 3am, so I will check in on M & T if I can. But other than that I will let you guys know whats going on. I am sorry for leaving you hanging.

Becca, Sorry to hear things have been so hectic! Hopefully it all smooths out and falls into place for you soon. Congrats on the promo though!

Hopefully my package reaches you by the 1st, but it may be the 2nd. I will be headed to the post office tomorrow morning.

Hey Becca, I never got my March swap stuff. What ever happened? I've written to you a few times in the March swap forum and to you on Yahoo and you never wrote. What's up with that? (I don't have this one saved to my favorites since I didn't sign up for April, so I'm not following this thread)

Did anyone else in the March swap get their stuff?

Please PM with status.. thank you.

sheesh how sad sally. im starting to wonder what is the point of the host flaking. do they want tons of the same items? i dunno but there is ALOT of it going around.

im just going to call this a wash and remove myself from this post. if she mails it she does. if not she will be added to the flakers list .

a lot of people have taken a break for the past couple of months we haven't really had any of the regulars sign up just a few.

I have been trying to find new people and I have messaged most of the people taking breaks to invite them back!



Well, can you really blame them?!? Add me to that list. This was a waste of time!

So, did you ever get the postage? Just curious since you haven't even bothered to check in since the 3rd! What a rip-off!



Why even bother hosting, setting everything up, looking for new members, and posting in the rules that packages will be mailed on the 4th if you're not going to follow through? I understand that life happens, but at least check in and let us know what's going on. It's 2 weeks past your "mail by" date and no one knows what's happening. You have had time to work on your blog and post to other threads, so life can't really be getting in the way too aweful much. Ridiculous!

Ladies, it's been fun, but I won't be doing this again.

I got a message from her- her job changed her level of responsibility and she is working long hours - retail sucks when it comes to that. She was going to try and get things sorted and sent soon- that was a few days ago...

Just thought I'd pass that on- she hasn't forgotten us- her work hours have really taken a toll.

Char, that is completely understandable. However, she could have stopped by to let us know here.

I'm not arguing that at all- just I PM'd her to check up & that was her reply. Since I noticed she had not posted here- thought I would pass that on.
