Welcome Paper Sisters Circle to a new and beautiful month and another AWESOME Swap together!!!

Before I start with the specifics I would like you all to welcome Val "izzy0611" and "Cheena"to the Circle. They are awesome scrappers and even more awesome ladies...so give them a HUGE welcome!!!

So now to officially kick off our new swap for the month of March...


"Scrappy Beautiful Banners"

These are going to be a BLAST to create!!

Here are the specifics:

***Due Date: APRIL 15, 2012***


** We will be making 1 Banner piece for every person in the Paper Sisters Circle...There should be 10 participants in this spot unless someone has to decline to participate, and then we will let you all know as we go!**

1. Each person in the group will choose the colors that they would like their banner piece to be. We will then let everyone know our color choices. This is the important part in order to have it be individualized for each Sister.

2. Each banner piece must be cut out of chipboard.

3. Cut any shape banner piece of your choosing at 7" so that they all will be about the same size when strung together. We want to be able to see our banners when we walk into our scrap rooms!We will then make two holes to the banner piece. One on each top corner. If it is a shape like a diamond, then it would simply be one in the center! The less holes the better!! This is so we can attach it to the actual strand that will hold the banner together

4. Cover your banner piece in any way you choose, Paint, Fabric, Patterned Paper, Cardstock. Remember to cover both sides and embellish both sides as well, as our banners may turn or flip as they hang and we want our banners to look spectacular!! Use your imagination and have FUN doing these!!!

5. Embellish any way that you'd like! Add a word letter, a poem, quote, or just leave it simple and the recipient can add what they'd like to those. But there must be at least 4 embellishment techniques. ie inking, flowers, lace, ribbon, charms, brads etc...

6. The most important thing to remember about this swap is to have FUN!!! Be creative, and express YOURSELF!!!!

If you have any questions along the way...please ask.

After you have completed your banner pieces you will individually bag each banner piece with the swap name, your Sisters Name, your username, your real name, and then put them in an appropriate sized envelope and send my way! You will need to include return postage in the same amount that you spent to send. I will cover anything over or under. I will see that they all get distributed and sent to the each Sister.

Welcome Izzy

I've attempted to make a Thanksgiving banner, but never finished it- so this will make me actually get a banner together.

Okay- my colors are Dark Purple w/touches of greens & yellows with cats. I don't mind lavender in it- but the predominant color is Purple please.

I just watched some videos a friend sent me and she found this type of mini called "stack the deck" - ever heard of it?? Maybe for one of our future projects we could be paired with someone and go all out on making one of them...Just a thought!

Good Morning Beautiful Ladies....

That is a great question about the holes at the top!!! I will add that to the specifics.

We will add two holes to the banner piece. One on each top corner. If it is a shape like a diamond, then it would simply be one in the center! The less holes the better!! I just updated the instructions so that we can refer back if necessary!!

I am so happy to see that we are getting this kick started and can't wait to actually create these banner pieces!!!

Wow Vani- that's amazing. Love the pics to go by. That helps me a lot.

Makes me also think- but HOW am I going to find pictures that represent what I want? I have an idea- use Cat silhouettes instead of pictures, stickers or what not.

Tonight I'm back on decorating the albums.... have a lot to do in a few days before we fly off to the Caribbean. If I had the vac time I'd take a few days off so I can finish these and pack....

Your vacation sounds WONDERFUL!!! A true getaway!!! I wish we all were going??? How big did you say that luggage of yours is???

I too have tons of decorating and embellishing to do still. I guess I work better under pressure...or maybe it was that I just signed up for too many swap?!?!?!?

Love the idea, but not sure I can get it all done in a month. Guess I will give it a try.

Colors for me: black, hot pink, light pink, mint green. Theme/style: grunge, punk rock princess, guitars, skulls,etc. I also wouldn't mind a shamrock or 2(in any of the colors, not just mint) I will probably add my own word later, most likely "create" or "artist".

Morning. Thank you all again for inviting me into the circle and the warm wishes. So I was going back and forth all day with what colors/theme I wanted. I was debating if I wanted something for my craft corner or something for my son's room. But since I have already altered his name on wooden letters I fig I can use the banner for myself. Teeheehee! My decor is mostly black & white so I would like my banner the same as well. B&W with touches of pink (but not too much pink) I would like primarily b&w please. As far as theme/style goes I am with Erin. I like the whole grunge look/ punk rock princess. Love me some skulls too! Now it's time for me to check out everyone else's request!

JCI- thanks for the links Bon. I'll have to wait till I get home to check them out. Ebay is blocked here at work. They reduced their internet usage by half I'm told by blocking it. LOL I think that's a little much, but it is true usage went down. But people find something else to get on- thankfully SB isn't a high usage issue and I can get on during breaks. Just no eBay or uTube.

Two more days and a wakeup and I'm headed to the Dominican Republic- beach- here I come...

Vani...Unless you have spoken to her since I have, it was the accordion albums that she was not participating in. I sure hope she isn't missing out on this one too!!! Booooo I have PM'd her myself with the link...and we are friends on FB so I am hoping to her from her.

Happy to hear about your order Vani!!!I hope it's nice strong chipboard...that's why I was leery to order if I couldn't see it first...but I did anyway too!!

Oh YAYYYYYYY Char!!! Check out the links...and remember to have a pina colada for me when you are enjoying that beautiful beach. Maybe you could bring me back some sand???

oh i love this group so much! still so excited to be a part of it!!

got inspired by vani posting the shape of the banner she'd like. my preference would be the good old fashioned upside down triangle if possible!

got several new toys for my bday today and am going to have a scrapaholic weekend to get caught up! bonus that my cricut is working again (needed new blade). gonna scrap til my fingers bleed! (or since the little ones are going to their dad's, possibly sleep until my dh wonders if i'm comatose. one or the other....maybe combination of both! )




Scrappin' Twinsie!!! No sleeping!!! We have stuff to create!!!!! If your DH can't wake you up...I sure will!!!! I want to know all about that awesome little pink binderific toy you got too...and if you are sleeping I'll never knowwwww!!!

I only get tomorrow to scrap on the albums- then we're off to the Caribbean for a week- we don't get back until 9:30pm next Saturday night- I need to order that chipboard tomorrow so it will be here when I get back.

Wish you all could come with me - we'd have so much fun watching whales, soaking rays, playing in the ocean.....

I got my chipboard today!!! It is thin, but a little thicker than cereal box cardboard, I think it is good quality for banners and mini albums!!!

Deb I think it would be fine when you cover it with pattern paper . Do you know the thickness of it ? Because I think mine will be the same

It didn't have the size on the package. It's the first tiny line past the 1 on a school ruler! Sorry, it's the only way I know how to tell you.

Hi Ladies...

I was wondering the same thing?!?!? I don't want it to be so flimsy that you can bend or fold it!!! That is why I like to see it when I get it!!!

CI.

I ordered my chipboard here on SB.com. I hope it'll be good enough, it says it's thin but good for album covers, handmade embellies and I think it's been used for some banner projects by other members.

I think before we all get too excited, and actually begin the Banner pieces we need to remember that each piece of the banner will be the shape of the creators choice...refer back to guideline #3

***Cut any shape banner piece of your choosing at 7" so that they all will be about the same size when strung together. We want to be able to see our banners when we walk into our scrap rooms!We will then make two holes to the banner piece. One on each top corner. If it is a shape like a diamond, then it would simply be one in the center! The less holes the better!! This is so we can attach it to the actual strand that will hold the banner together.***

There will be those in the group that have a problem cutting a specific shape because they don't have the equipment/template to do it!!! This has already been a problem brought to my attention by one of the Sisters. Some may have already ordered their chipboard in the original style of a Pennant. Others may want a particular shape that another is unable to cut by hand.

So let's just keep to the guidelines originally stated. If you chose a certain shape then we will do our best to accommodate you, but we want this swap to be FUN and original, not a "specific order" swap!!! This swap was meant to be a starting place for awesome ideas to maybe make more banners for ourselves and those we love. So let's have fun, and be creative and not make it so particular that we are out chasing down the paper and shapes, or worse than that, sitting out this particular swap because you just can't cut the chipboard!!! I want every Sister to participate.

I hope no one will be offended by this post as that is not my intention at all. I simply want everyone to feel like they can participate, and I want to make it as simple as can be so that it will be tons of fun!!!

With that being said...LET'S CREATE SISTERS!!!!!!!!!

Not offended at all!! I would hate for someone to sit out just because they couldn't sut a specific shape. I love the idea of being able to do different shapes for each person....makes them all that much more special!!! I already have some fun ideas swimming around in my head!!! wish the delivery man would bring the chipboard!!!!!

I am still here with you and I am still trying to decide what I want for my color/theme, sorry I am debating between doing a breast cancer theme so like pink creams white with maybe some teal in it for ovarian cancer and then I could add the word hope or cure to it to use when we have gatherings after the races/walks we do in support of breast and ovarian cancer we do atleast 2breast cancer ones a year and 1 ovarian cancer that we have gatherings after (we do other things like go to the pink hockey game in a couple weeks but we do nothing afterwards) or I was thinking I would do one to match my kitchen which is cornflower blue and is a birdhouse and sunflower theme and then I would add my name or something to it, I will make my mind up by tom. and if I pick one to match my kitchen I will take a pic. of where I plan on putting it so you can see it cuz there is so many different colors that would go

and bon I am not offended I would rather have everyone do what they want I think it is gonna be neat to see what everyone comes up with, if they are all the same shape they will look great but if they are all different or some are then it gives them character and either way I think we have a great group of ladies and think they will look awesome

Lilly...I'm ready when you are!! I think both of your ideas are fantastic!! I can't wait to see what you decide!!!

Vani...YOU ARE AWESOME!!! Your excitement oozes from you...and I LOVE THAT!!! I for one will definitely be making your banner piece to suite your wishes...because you asked for it!!!

Debby...I am so EXCITED for you...there are no words just waiting for them to find out the gender so that I can start a beautiful baby blanket for him/her.

Cass asked a question that is very important about these banners. So here's the answer...We will be covering and decorating both sides of the banner piece simply because as it hangs it may turn and we want all sides to look terrific!! So I will add that to the specifics.

If anyone ever has a question, refer to those specifics on the first page and if it is still not there then please ask me!!!

I know a couple of Sisters are already working on their banners..... HAPPY DANCE!!!

Congrats Debby! You will have so much fun spoiling your new addition to your family!!

Bon- I think having different shapes in our banners will just add to the creativity and uniqueness of this project so I'm excited!! I already have an idea for one of the banner pieces that is in a shape that we didn't mention. So yeah, it will be fun!

Has anyone heard from Henva (stopnstare)?

I like the idea of everyone making their own shapes for each person, and if it makes things any easier I personally like the traditional pennant shape (upside down triangle) the straight lines should be easy to cut and I don't want anyone to have to worry or fuss over mine.

Anyhow, I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

Hello. I received my chipboard yesterday. It's thin, but sturdy! It's about the same thickness as the cardboard found in the back of paper packs (which, btw I think we can reuse for this very project too! )I'm sure after we add all our papers and pretty embellishments and what not the banners will be fine.

I just went through and picked out all the papers for all of the banners!!! Now I will go through all of them and write down the embellishments and what cartridge I will need for each persons banner... Once that is done I will start putting them together... I love banners!!!

Ok good. I hope she can participate. I only have the original Cricut too, so I will be cutting pieces by hand. Not a big deal. I'm used to it.

Sorry ladies, was MIA for a few days....I did just what I said I was gonna do....scrapped my bootie off AND slept like I was trying to win a contest!! I had 6 days off, was supposed to return last night but they texted me and said it was my turn for call! Didn't want to take it but since it was my turn and no one else wanted it I didn't get to say no. Soooooooo, I did what everyone else would do.....SCRAPPED!!

Debby, congrats!! That is so awesome! Can't wait to find out boy or girl so I can start crafting! Although I realize (both from personal experience AND from my job) that if they say it's a boy, I'll start scrappin'....if they say it's a girl, i'll wait a few months!

Got some chipboard on sale at HL the other day (50% off!) but they only had 2 packs left. Gonna go back this weekend and see if they've restocked. If not I'll explore other options.

Cass, SOOOOO glad u asked about decorating both sides! My goofy self never even thought about that, and was just thinking about doing one side! Hopefully before I finished the thought would've occured to me to do the other side but with my scatterbrained self you never know! Thankfully now I don't have to because you saved me!!

I posted this yesterday on a different forum but probably should've posted it here as well.....HAPPY BIRTHDAY BON!! I know ur bday was yesterday, but if u check the vday secret pal swap forum (and your phone!! ) you'll see I also wished u salutations on your special day as well. Hope your day was as amazing as you, because nothing less would do! (Hey, that rhymed! i should totally put that on a card...... )

I just realized for all of us that have the original "baby" cricut. I believe we can still cut out our shapes at the size requested. We would just cut the width of the pennant out at 5inch the max for our mat size, then the length would be at 7inches. Or by hand too! That's how I was going to do it originally until I had this epiphany.

I must apologize as well for being MIA!!! It doesn't happen often but when it does it's a doozy!! As Val mentioned yesterday was my Birthday! I was spoiled beyond measure and got to spend some valuable time with the MOST important guy on the planet!!!

Cheena...I love your epiphany!!! We are some incredibly talented, inventive and creative Sisters aren't we???

Just a quick check in...tomorrow I will be back in the saddle again.

Thanks for holding down the fort all of you!!!

DEBBY....I LOVEEEEEE YOUR BANNER!!!!!!!
