Learning Swap Round 1
Hostess: Kozy Scraps
Due Date: December 31, 2010

Send to :
Pamela Stewart
4320 W. Ruby st
Pasco, WA. 99301

Want to learn something new or just brush up on your skill then this is the swap for you! I was in one of these years ago and I had so much fun. I learned a lot and gain a lot of friends! Each month we will be working on different techniques.

This month we are working on crochet or knit flowers, shading and distressing. Requests are always welcomed. What is requested the most will always be a topic for the next month. So please feel free to pm with any requests.

Guidelines
1. Even though this is a learning swap, please do your best work possible and you do not need to be new to scrapping to join.
2. Please bag each group individually, label them with your screen name and which group they are for. Place all of your items in a bag no smaller than a one gallon bag marked with your screen name and for what swap it is for.
3. Please send a self addressed stamped envelope with the same amount of postage it took to mail your package, plus three .44 cent stamps to cover any additional weight there might be for your returning package. All unused postage will be returned to you. Do not in metered mail.
4. You may sign up for as many groups as you like, but you can only have one spot for each group.
5. Check in once a week. I will contact you only twice! If I do not hear from you I will have no choice but to angel your spot out.
6. To better insure your items will be here on time please mail your package off no later than 5 mailing days before the due date. I will only wait three days before sorting out and will ship off no later than 5 days after the due date.
7. Make 5 identical items for each group you are in.
8. Most immortally have fun!

Sorry. I wasn't clear. Someone had said at one point that they would like to work on shading diecuts. I didn't realize I had just put shading. I must have been more tired from the cold I had than I thought. I do apologize.

Seeing how I wasn't clear I am open to to have everyone suggest what type of shading they feel they could use little practice on and just go with which ever one is mentioned the most. Or they can just do which ever they eve they want instead of just picking on thing. I am very flexible. Plus tired. Our two cats woke me up fighting and I couldn't get back to sleep. )c:

Yes it was great kidnapping! They took me bowling!

I like the idea of shading die cuts. Should add an interesting dimension.

I updated the 1st page. Sorry I haven't been on. I keep getting bumped offline. The cable company said they had outages due the wind, but it wasn't windy on Sunday or yesterday. They came out today and said the problem wasn't theirs. So I am taking my computer in to get worked on. So if you don't hear from me that is why. I am supposed to get my computer back on Monday, but that is only if I do not need a part replaced. If I need to buy a new part it will cost more then what I have money for right now, so I might not be back online until the 3rd. That is when I get paid next.

I got mine done, my distressing turned out better then my other set. Do you want me to send my set as well, or keep my one from each group I am in?

The shading one, I triple matted, but left it so you could add it to a card if you like, or just as an element on a layout.

Going postal tomorrow with it.
