Hi, I'm Michelle and I love to make cards! I also love to get new stuff to play with; especially kits because it's lots of stuff at once! So, I want to host my first swap ever. I want to do it monthly, hopefully we can keep it going forever. I am flexible with the parameters but here is what I am thinking.

It is sooo busy now so this will begin in January. The kits will have to be mailed by Jan. 10. I will pair people up randomly and send out a pm with your partner's address. I'm thinking that there will be a theme for each month's kit. You must post of photo of your kit when you receive it and of course share what you make with us! Our next big holiday is Valentine's day and that is the theme for January's card kit. Each kit should include enough goodies to make 3-4 cards. I'm sure we all have plenty of Valentine's stuff in our stash or if anyone is so inclined you can go out and buy new stuff. I have a ton of stickers that I have never opened but of course fell in in love with and *had* to have. You can include half of a 12 x 12 pp or stickers, or just a few rub-on sentiments, etc.

I think the kits should include some of each:
-cardstock or card base (can be shaped, i.e. heart base)
-ribbon
-stickers
-rub-ons
-brad
-pp
-alphas

Let me know if you have any suggestions and ask me anything you want to...within reason, of course! LOL

I hope this will be fun!

Let me know if you have any questions. Have your kits in the mail by January 10th. However, Canadian mail seems to be slow, so if you are sending something to or from there, please try to get it out sooner. Have fun! I'm so excited everyone is enjoying this!

I am going to add the list to the first post. I will post your swap buddy and pm their mailing addresses by Jan. 5th. That should give everyone enough time to wind down from the holidays and get excited about a new one!
That reminds me, can you start PMing me your mailing addresses? Thanks!

Hi Lisa! I'm glad you joined!

I want to let you all know that I'm going to leave the swap open until the first week of january since everyone is so busy now--including me! But expect to have your kits ready for mailing around Jan. 10.
I'm thinking about having a monthly winner of a RAK. We can either vote or have a random drawing or I can pick. I promise I will be fair--you can trust me, I'm a lawyer. LOL
Let me know your thoughts chickies!

I love that! "You can trust me, I'm a lawyer." Hahahaha! Too funny.

I like the idea of a RAK winner. I am so excited to send my kit! I already have it started. You mentioned a list of things that should be included in each kit. Do we have to send a new package of each thing or can we send little baggies of brads, eyelets, etc. that we have from our stash?

In addition to the post above...I have another question about our kits. When we make up the kits are we making up an "instruction" or "how-to" with the supplies? Or is it just pieces, shapes, brads, etc and then we just make the card how we want? I don't want my first kit to go out and it's not right. Thanks in advance.

We can send little baggies of brads, etc., from our likely ginormous stash. (at least I know mine is.) I was trying to make this kind of laid back but I suppose there should be some guidelines so we all get something of equal value. How about one new package of either stickers, brad, embellies, anything, up to the cost of $3. And, lucky for you Jerusha, US $ is just about equal to Canadian money, so 3 bucks is 3 bucks! LOL After that, everything is from your stash. I have many unopened packages, mostly stickers, that I will send. I would say a whole package of something counts as your new $3 item.
You do not have to include instructions, I think it is way fun to see what someone else comes ups with using stuff they might not ordinarily use.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
I'm so excited for this to start!

I'm so glad that I made almost everybody happy! Cindy had suggested that we send the kits out later than the 10th because of how busy everybody is now. I know personally, that it I can get the kit together and in the mail by the 10th. What do you guys think?
Here are the time frames I had in mind for each monthly swap.
10th of the month - kits go postal
11th-30th - post a pic of the kit you received
30th/31st - newly created cards are to be posted
1st of the following month a name for the RAK will be posted as well as you next partner to swap with.
Make sense? I hope this is fun!

I OWE MICHELLE AN APOLOGY: SHe mentioned above that I thought the due date for Jan. was a little early for me, and that "almost everybody" was happy. Well, I'M HAPPY TOO!
WHY?
I got all my stuff for my Kit today! I LOVE IT!!! Such pretty things! My Partner is getting all new things, except for a partial of a big bottle of pink flowers! THREE DOLLARS? I think I MAY have gone over...by about 3 times!!! Uh-oh...the attorney is gonna get me for breaking the law! I've got HUGE stash, but I'm primarily a scrapbooker who works on larger pages, so alot of my embellishments are too big for cards... but how big do eyelts and brads really get?!?! SO, I'll add some of those too. I beleive I have a bunch of red heart-shaped brads. YAY!! REady for my Partner assignment and getting MY kit too!
Its all good though, becasue I am hosting a swap for which I need 18 FINISHED cards prtty darn soon, and I have exactly 4 done! LOL! Better get my priorities in order!
THanks for Hosting, Michelle! I'm not really a diffiuclt person at all! I was Just a little overwhelmed! Can you please forgive a fellow paper crafter?

Cindy

Cindy - you never have to apologize for your opinion silly! As for going over the "$3 rule," I'm a criminal defense attorney and I can find 5000 justifications why you did that! I'm sure everyone will be happy with their kits because it's too fun putting one together. If you guys all keep telling me how much you're putting in your kits, I'm going to have to cheat and pick my partner! LOL

Hmmm....let's see...I haven't made my kit yet but here's what I will likely do: I am going to use an 8 x 11ish envelope.
4 pieces of cardstock, probably 6 x 12 so it fits or 8x 11 or 1 heart shaped
1 package of stickers
5-6 kinds of ribbon, maybe 1-2 ft long
5 flower embellies
10 brads
10 gems
stamp
10 buttons

That is my approximation.. I hope it helps!
Have a great holiday everyone!

No shopping for me today.... just work. I tried to go to work and was turned around by the local police. We had a freezing rain storm last night and they shut the town down until the public works dept could get the salt down, then when I did go an hour later it took me 45 minutes to go 10 minutes away.....

No shopping for me today.... just work. I tried to go to work and was turned around by the local police. We had a freezing rain storm last night and they shut the town down until the public works dept could get the salt down, then when I did go an hour later it took me 45 minutes to go 10 minutes away.....




Glad to hear that you are safe and off of the roads, how is it there today?

I can't imagine being so cold. Here it tis chilly but not bad at all. I was finally able to work on putting together my kit. Deciding on what to add. I didn't realize how much valentine things I had from last year that I did not end up using and I still went out and got a few things. Only thing i have to decide is what papers to send out. Hopefully whom ever gets it likes the things i send. Have a great everyone!

How was the game Michelle?

It is raining here too. The snow is melting and everything is so slippery!!

I cleaned the kids room this afternoon. What a workout! I am tired now and don't want to do anything this evening but I still need to do laundry. I just can't keep up. I would rather make cards!

I am sure you have answered this question already but I am too lazy to search for the answer. LOL!

When do we get our partners? Mail out date is about 2 weeks away but it takes longer for mine so I would like to mail it out this week, if that is possible at all.

Robyn - I did not forget about you; I just forget to update the first page! If you check now, I promise you will be there!

Welcome Jaime! I'm glad you joined!

Jerusha is going to be my swap partner this time for the reasons I wrote above. All the rest of you will be randomly paired up and I will post partners this Thursday!
If you haven't already, please pm your address to me so I can add it to my list. Also, please let me know if I can send the list to the entire group so we all have each others addresses. (And that way it is less work for me because I don't have to do that every month!)

I'm off to put Jerusha's kit and other stuff together--you're going to LOVE it!!

Having fun with putting my kit togethor! I found some lovely Prima Marketing pp that I think would be perfect for Valentines/Love in my stash. Has anyone seen the Aurora Collection pps? Anyone agree? disagree?
