Ok this is my first time hosting anything so bear with me! I am stealing this idea from MissPrincess and her Trick or Treat Halloween Scavenger Hunt Swap. So here it goes…

Please read and follow all rules below before signing up. Any questions feel free to ask!



Each person will be assigned a partner for this swap and you will mail directly to your partner. I ask that you and your partner mail at or around the same time so there are no issues with someone sending and not receiving!

You will put all items in a Holiday or Christmas, bag, box, can, etc. Anything at all that it will all fit in, store bought or handmade.

Here are the twists …
1. Everything should be usable on a scrapbook page.
2. You will decide what you choose for each letter. But you must include a note to your partner explaining how each item fits the letters. Each item may only represent one letter.
3. You need to choose between a Happy Holidays swap or a Merry Christmas swap and communicate with your partner so they know your likes dislikes and favorite holiday color combos!

All items need to be postal to your partner no latter then the first week in December so everyone has their goodies by Christmas!

PLEASE CHECK IN ONCE A WEEK.


You may sign up for more than one spot! I will randomly assign partners and you will know who your partner is!

There is plenty of time to do this swap so lets get started with the sign ups and get some hunting and creating done!!!



Happy Holidays Partners:
1.Elysia & Hostess(snow colors-blue, white, lavender, silver)
2.sgrcookie(pinks, purples, and reds but any color ok)& haasiendamom
3.Shaie Renee & dtunjian
4. mojodawn & Chrissytina

Merry Christmas Partners:
1.farnsworth & Hostess
2.scrappinmomto2girls & Navyaowife2005
4.charlottemd & mmjtr

I wouldnt have a problem as long as it wasnt obviously over used or missing pieces but if it was like an assortment of brads in Christmas colors that is fine cuse you might not be able to get them like that NIP. Could you give me an example?

Ok you will choose an item for each letter in the group you choose. So for example Merry Christams maybe for m you send some mulberry paper and e could be an e-cut from sb.com etc...
Once you pick a group and I start to assign partners you can ask if they want holiday/Christmas themed stuff or everyday sb stuff. You can also talk about colors you prefer so for me for example In the holiday group I would prefer blues and whites like snow colors.
Does that help?
Thanks for a great question.

you laddies are great I love how you are trying to get to know each other. letting your partner know your likes and dislikes is really important.
Brandi I dont have any specific christmas theme because I have never really done christmas pages. But now with the little one i have to start I really like the frosted collection by Reminiscebut that fits more with the holiday theme. I will look online tonight and get some ideas to share with you.

hi Jerusha no you dont have to spend a lot of money but if you make something it really needs to be high quality. What you send doesn't have to be nip either for example it could be a yard of ribbon from your stash or a collection of holiday colored brads. Hope you will join us!

I sat down with her today and showed her some of the things and how to navigate beacause she's been wanting to join and as a matter of fact mentioned it to me that's how I started but she's been a little intimidated not knowing where to go!! So I'll try to get her on board!! Have a great day

Hi and welcome we have one spot left in happy holidays! You are going to shop for your partner and each thing you get must be represented by one of the letters in happy holidays so maybe for a you could get an acrylic stamp or for p some patterned paper . It could be from your stash so you dont have to spend a lot just get creative but you must have something for each letter and it needs to be something they can use for scrapbooking. I will add you to the front check out the first post to see who your partner is. You will then get to know them on this thread so you have an idea of what they like so you get them stuff they will actually use.
