I have participated in stopnstare07's LOTW swaps she's been hosting and now she's taking a little break. I am so insanely addicted to this swap I asked her if I could host a VACATION themed round, so here it is!

LOTW swaps are wonderful and fun. Each swapper will create a different letter of a VACATION themed word. You make one per letter in the word and send them to me, I will swap them all out and you will get back that completed word!!! Colors are listed so they will coordinate and the finished words can be used on layouts, mini's, cards...virtually anything you can think of!

I will accept sign ups until April 1st. I may close sign ups sooner if we fill up fast.

All letters are DUE TO ME BY June 15th and will be mailed back to you on June 23rd.

I will be offering a bonus, I usually send small gifts of appreciation for timely swappers and those who keep up on check ins. This time I am going to offer a bonus to anyone who has their letters submitted to me early. If I receive your letters by June 8th I will pay your return postage! This is not for those postmarked by the 8th but received in my hands no later than the 8th. This will be my way of saying thank you for sending in early!!!

Any spots not received BY the 15th will be offered out for Angels; ALL angel packages will need to be received BY June 22nd! All packages will be returned to all swappers on June 23rd, complete or not. If there are empty spots due to flakers (and not being able to get them Angel'ed) I will at least send blank letters that you can decorate yourself!

***RULES***
You MUST USE some type of die cut system (sillouhette, cricut, cuttlebug, etc.) to cut out your chosen letter of a word. EXAMPLE: You sign up for "F" in Flowers, you will cut 7 capital F's and decorate following the chosen color scheme. You must embellish your letters according to theme also. Once swapped out, you will receive the entire word Flowers back, each letter being created and embellished by a different Swapper.

SIZE SPECIFICATIONS
Each letter submitted must be between 1.5 and 2.5 inches from top to bottom and not to exceed more than 2.5 inches from side to side. Letters can be created as a stand alone letter or placed onto a creative shape or design that follows the theme and colors for the word. Examples I have made are; "e" in Flowers placed on a butterfly, "e" in Beach placed on a crab, c for School placed on a lunch sack die cut and another on a crayon die cut, "a" for Cocktails placed on a martini glass die cut, etc. If you are going to have a stand alone letter, please remember to make it within the size specifications and matte the letter. All letters, matting, and background shapes must follow the overall size restrictions and color schemes.

EMBELLISHMENT SPECIFICATIONS:
After cutting out your letter, please use a variety of techniques and/or embellishments to make them stand out. It is not expected that each letter be a "super star" but please use your best judgement in the finishing touches. If your letter stands alone you must matte it with a shadow.

**IMPORTANT THINGS TO CONSIDER**
If you have the first letter of a word, you are obligated to "knock it out the park!" Set the tone for the word by really letting your creativity flow on these! If you have the first letter of the word, please make sure it is also capitalized. (No other letter in the word needs to be capitalized!)

Each word has a color scheme so that they will coordinate and look nice together. They also need to be made within the appropriate theme. For example, you would not incorporate a pig die cut into your letter P for the word play...that just doesn't match. You could, however, use a ball, or a slide, etc. Please adhere strictly to the color scheme and theme of the word.

For examples of letters I've done check out my Gallery , you can also check out stopnstare07's last LOTW Swap for examples in the opening post and in her Gallery for completed words from that swap.

I'll take:

C- Vacation #2
E- Weekend
R- Relax
O- Roadtrip (might take another spot too)
A- Lake
B- Beach
V- Adventure
E- Theme Park

If Beach is closed, can you open another? Also can you open a CABIN if there's interest? I'll take A if you open it. With browns, hunter green, moss green, black and cream?

-Mountains
-Tour

If you open up another Beach, I'd like the "a" in that word as well. If you open up Island, Tropical, and Safari, I will take letters in those words as well! :-)

Since I do 4 or so scrappy weekend getaways/escapes a year, I NEED the following:

"k" in weekend
"y" in getaway
"p" in escape
"i" in cabin (if you open that one)

Due date is perfect for me

Y in Journey
A in AtSea. Either one is fine.

I would be in depending on colors for
Mountains - color suggestions tan/hunter green/black/white
Island any tropical colors would be nice
Explore hmmm, browns, blues, greens maybe
Magical - Disney colors would be great

Also, could we do a beach with open colors? I know that they look better with color themes, but I think beach could really be a fun free for all? Or it could be a complete disaster

I was thinking something along the lines of peach, lemon, and some sort of lighter shades of blue and green for "ISLAND" and red, yellow, black and white for "MAGICAL" if we make it a Disney theme vacation word. As for "Mountains" and "Explore" maybe earthy colors(browns, greens, white, navy, or orange,etc).

Maybe for "TROPICAL"(bright colors: fuchsia, orange, yellow, black, or bright blue, green, pink, yellow, purple)

"SAFARI" - brown, black, white, orange, dusty yellow, animal prints)

Just suggestions

I think (THINK) I got everyone in the list correctly - PLEASE check the front page, if a letter was taken that you wanted I may have given you a different letter in the same word.

Hey Henva, this is what I interpret as "teal." I think of it as a little greener than aqua.

They can be made out of whatever you like. Just make sure it's matted if you're doing just a letter so it'll be more firm.

So sorry Kim!!! I think I have it all correct now, but please everyone continue to double check me!!!

I dropped a few words that weren't getting any takers (except me)...I am going to beg though for some to sign up for tickets for me, I really wanna do this word! I thought it could be very versatile, tickets for a plane, a show, a theme park, heck it could even be a traffic ticket! LOL Not that you'd wanna scrap that....but yes I could so see myself doing that! ROFLOL

Cardstock is fine, especially since they are placed onto a shape or backing of some sort, or at least matted. They end up being plenty sturdy! Thanks for asking, can't wait to see what you come up with!

Looking good! Can someone post "teal" for me, though? LOL...I just want to make sure I have the right color in mind.



Hey Henva, this is what I interpret as "teal." I think of it as a little greener than aqua.

Echo Park - Happy Days Collection - 12 x 12 Double Sided Paper - Teal



Thanks, Erin!!! I think I was thinking turquoise? So kinda aquaish? I will post my papers before I cut. LOL...sorry to be so literal! I just want it all to match!




Henva- I think "teal" and "turquoise" are very similar. So either of those will look good in the overall word. Don't stress about it!

I'll also take the "I" in reunion (my high school reunion is this summer, so hopefully I can use it for that since our colors are black and blue, and the word colors are black and white). And go ahead and give me the "C" in the open Beach. Thanks!

Is it because you were using something else? Or is it because you haven't been scrapbooking for 18 months?

It is because I been using many other machines/product/items.

And I been making more cards than layouts lately as well.

It felt good to be back to cutting again

Double checking my words...and color schemes. On punishment for the rest of the month as far as buying scrappy goods, I've gone WAYY overboard buying Cricut carts within the last 2 weeks!!! UGH...I think I have everything I need though! Should be able to start these over the Easter Break! Thanks for doing this...great USEFUL words!!!

Thank you

I wouldn't mind "Scenic", "Nautical", and "Paradise". I live in Alaska and scenic, or scenery practically describes everything about it. I think Nautical would be cool for cruise themes, beach or even SpongeBob for kids ("nautical nonsense"). Anyway if there's interest and you open them up, hook me up with :
"C" in Scenic (grass green, soft yellows, browns, sky blue, white)
"N" in Nautical (navy blue, red, bright yellow, white)
"S" in Paradise (fuchsia, light pink, sunset orange, plum purple or lavender)

I'll also help fill spots if need be, figured I'd give it another week or two to see who else signs up.

I have so many ideas for words, it's ridiculous. I'm thinking a Boy themed LOTW and Girl themed LOTW would be cool. I'd host if I had my own place, but I live with my folks and I don't think they'd be too happy about the mess,haha. Maybe closer to the Fall, once this and the Summer swap are over, if we all aren't too swapped out, then we can do one of the above ideas

Hi Ladies, I had a late night with the Hunger Games premiere at midnight with my son and my best friend but I will update in just a bit.

Erin if you want to work together and you "host" a new LOTW (after this one of course) but have everything mailed to me and I will do the swapping I'd absolutely love that!!! I know it's a big headache and takes up space and time but I love love love the actual swapping out of the stuff! Just let me know if you wanna work together on a new one after this! You have had some awesome ideas!!!

P.S. I don't mind how many words we have if everyone is signing up and happy with the words!

HVN101 one of the letters you wanted was taken but I put you in the same word, different letter! Let me know if that's ok please.

Erin, I got you 3 new words up - thanks for the color schemes. I placed you in them but if you want different letters let me know! Thanks again!!!

Thanks Susie. I will let you know. No worries though, if it happens it won't be until August or September. I know summer is super busy for everyone. Not to mention, I'm sure we'll need a little break after this one. Thanks for adding the words. And like I said, I will help fill spots if need be. Thankfully the due date is in June

I highly, highly suggest you think about NOT having lots and lots of words...IJS...lol! HIGHLY! Its also good to limit words so you won't have TONS of people that you can't keep up with...and not a lot to angel IF someone disappears.

Are you going to get rid of words that don't have lots of takers?

Updated again!

There's only 2 words I was considering dropping but I feel bad if someone really wanted that word. (Voyage & Holiday) I seriously do not mind the swapping part and the number of words is fine with me. I love love love the actual swapping of items.

Also, I put in the opening post that if angel spots are not received by June 22nd I will be sending blank letters back that can be decorated by the individual swapper. I know it's not a desirable outcome but I'd like to have these swapped out and sent back ON June 23rd! It may seem like a high expectation but I am going to do everything in my power to meet it! Thank you for your advice I truly do appreciate it. (And thanks for joining!!!)

I'm in Travel and Adventure and I noticed those 2 aren't really filling. I do want those words, and will consider taking another spot in each if need be. But I understand if they don't fill, they don't fill. There's nothing I can do about it and will just have to do without, or make my own word later. So don't worry about having to close words that aren't filling. We understand.

You can always wait until the end of the month, or middle of April to see if anyone changes their mind, or more people join. You never know. But it's probably best to have a set date, and if words aren't filled by then, let them go. Unless those in the group want to go ahead with a partial word and make their own missing spots. Just a thought

I am trying to post as I do mine.
I have 3 more letters in progress on my table now. maybe I will complete them later.

I had a hard time with the "teal" in one, as someone else posted. I finally dug around , and found and American Crafts kit, with cardstock labeled TEAL inside it. I went with that
