Hello FABULOUS Paper Sisters!!!
Its time to begin our next project and we are soooo excited about it!!! Several of you have talked about binders so that we can put each others information in them and have an easy reference when we are working on projects. Soooooo heres our next project!!!!

It will be a 2 part project each lasting one month and will be due at the end of the 2nd month.

May - 1st part of the project:
All names will be put into a hat and random names will be drawn. Each person will receive one secret name and create a 2” binder that holds 8.5” X 11” paper for their partner decorated and embellished based on the person whose name they received color choices and theme.
Pretty simple right?? Just one embellished FABULOUS binder!!!
Just REMEMBER….its a secret!!! You can post pictures and we can guess but no cheating!!!! SHHHHH!!!!!!!
***These should be finished by June 15, 2012***

June – 2nd part of the project:
For this part of the project each of us will fill out the "about me" form (I will email it to you if you pm me your email address) that way all the forms are the same and contain the same info.....and its alot simpler than having to do it from scratch!!! The 8.5” X 11” pages can be printed from your printer, filled out and decorated ANY way you choose!!! print/decorate both sides and remember to include as much information about yourself as possible. These pages will put into each persons binder so that when you get them back you will have a BEAUTIFUL reference to use when you are creating projects for each sister. You do not need to put each page in a page protector before you send them.....each person will be responsible for putting page protecttors in their own binders.
***Each sister will make 10 pages about herself to share/swap***

***Binders and ABout Me Pages are due together on August 30, 2012***

Please include the same amount of postage it took to send your package and a label if I am reusing your box or envelope. If its easier for you to just pay with paypal after I ship your package I am fine with that too!!!

If you have any questions just let us know!!!

Thanks so much to all of you who have made this group so much fun!! Your creativity continues to inspire and amaze!!!

Remember…..HAVE FUN!!!!

Binder/Pages Participants:

Debby_westbrook - Debby - Yellow, green & blue all together with a summer theme

Naneetootiebeeblebug - Bon

Cassondra71 - Cassondra - Yellow, gold, burgundy with dragonfly theme

Silver26AK - Erin -

Charcat7 - Char - PURPLE is the main color I want w/cat silhouettes. Complimentary colors to accent like green, lavender, red, yellow (very sparing on the yellow) & others that go good with purple

I must note- I am NOT a fan of pink & I do NOT like paisley patterned anything. Spring may be my favorite season, but I love the color scheme of autumn and the variation that fall brings. Natural elements are great but not too dimensional.

I'm so excited!!!!

I plan on using chipboard for my covers. I have 2 inch binder rings. I will use the protective page cover to line up the holes on my chipboard covers. I just have to figure out how big to make the chipboard covers because I want it to be a little bit bigger than the pages..

heres my first attempt at a page for our binders....some things I like....like my dog, bird and cat and some things I will change next time.....I have decided to make all of them a bit different.....all with the same info but different papers and designs

Stefanie...You have asked this question to me before! This is a closed group. The Paper Sister's Circle is a group of ladies that were chosen to swap together, based on previous swaps and their galleries...it is a high end group! It is not a general swap. If you would be considered for this circle and you were chosen you would receive a invitation in writing. I am sorry I thought I had already explained this with the banner swap. It is just a closed group...The reason for the (invitation only) in the title!! As Cassondra and Debby have already stated, If someone ever does drop out, we can add you to a list of people who will be considered, but the group is full and we aren't going to make it a huge group...it is just 10 ladies. I hope I have been able to explain this better than the last time!! So scrap away girl...and fill that gallery with goodies and who knows...Have a wonderful day!!!

YEAH!! Char I LOVE the details you gave about what you like....and don't like!!!

I think I am going to make up an extra page to go in my binder for each person to keep track of dislikes and other "stuff" like maybe what I made for them in past swaps so I don't duplicate...IDK......just a thought!!!

I don't think my idea of using a regualr binder and covering it is going to work.....Debby gave me some rings.....I may try it the way she suggested.....anyone else have ideas about how they are going to make theirs???

drat- I just posted- under tags I guess- thought I was here & asked a similar question. I have plastic binders at work that aren't that old, but they are already brittle and starting to break. Also- if you do a view binder- which is a good binder (Avery heavy duty) you have to make a totally flat page to slip in there. Most glues that bond to plastic still aren't 100% when stressed. A chipboard like what Debby mentioned, seems best when I really think about it. You just can't get the old canvas binders anymore.

I was thinking of finding a fabric or chipboard binder with a design on it and decorating the outside of it just a little. Something like this, the gal found the binder at Target.....

drat - it's a blog link- I'll have to wait till I get home to look at it. The hard part is- is it big enough so when you put document protectors in it, they don't stick out all over looking ugly

The gal used it for a Christmas scrapbook. All her pages are in protective sleeves and they look like they fit nicely.

Yeah I thought so too. It's not overly altered or anything but it still looks nice. I also liked how she added the tag on the thread and hung it over the binding. So I think I'm gonna try to go that route, because I'm not sure how I would decorate a plastic binder with the view sleeve.

Hi Ladies!!! I have a question? I never filled out a survey. I believe that was done in the first swap. Can I still do this one? and if so, can someone send me the survey?

I was gonna add also, I have a binder just like the one Erin posted. They are from Target, and the sleeves do not stick out. I actually use mine with baseball card sleeves, that holds all my small clear stamps in. Nothing sticks out like a soar thumb or anything. I think those binders would look good altered.

I would LOVE to know how you're going about making a binder!!!!! Is there a video??

I was thinking if you cover the binder (not using a view binder) you can use a tough glue like E6000 and then build from there OR I have seen where people make a cover, like a book cover that slips on the binder. I haven't started yet but would really like to know more about making your own!!!

This is what I have in mind for my binder. Only the 8 1/2x11 size and 3 rings instead of 2. I will make my binder a bit bigger than the page protector

SB.com has a binder worth considering as it is cloth and has a place for a photo - but it's 1.5"

This is a better example of what I'm making only bigger and with 3 rings...

Not only to add- but you could flip it to the page you want, tucking the others under it- in case you wanted to do that. A traditional binder won't let you. Did you eBay your chipboard again?

okay- it's neat- but I would have no use for another message board/calendar. I have several at my disposal. But maybe if we used the idea but set it up for something besides that theme- I have a cookie sheet that someone made me as a gift-

Oh I forgot to add my theme. I'm sure everyone can guess though. Haha. Shades of pink, silver, black, white and splashes of mint green. And of course Punk Rock, grungy, alternative, with a hint of lucky. Think: guitars, skulls, winged hearts, shamrocks, black lace, silver chains,etc.

Ok sorry this is late, but here are my answers.

Favorite Color? B&W, and Pink
Favorite Flower? Cherry Blossoms
Favorite Food?? Just for fun SUSHI!!! YUMMY!
Favorite Music? I love all music, but if I had to narrow it down, I would probably say alternative/rock
Something you can't live without??? besides my son (obviously) my phone lol! bad, I know
If I had to describe you what is it that you'd want others to know?? short and sweet, and very, very loyal

What is your favourite STYLE
(ie. Shabby, Retro, Romantic, Grungy, Modern, Cartoony etc.) I am still learning my craft style... when I do LO's of my son, I lean towards Cartoony I guess... everything else, all other projects, grungy and modern I would say.

What is your favourite THEME
(ie. Christmas, Friendship, Easter, Birthday, Baby, Every Day etc.)Since most of my LO's are of my son, and I am way behind, (he is about to turn 4, and I am still doing baby photos!) I would say baby theme, then Halloween is definitely next!! and Christmas!!

What is your favourite TECHNIQUE
(ie. Paper tearing, Embossing, Paper Piecing, Assorted, Stamping, Painting, 3D etc)My newest obsession is stamps/stamping. I have recently started embossing. I love to distress my edges on everything!!

Favorite Products: I love everything!!

Favorite Embellishments to use: flowers and laces/trims (only because I can't use these on my son's LO's LOL)

Favorite Scrapbooking Brands: No favorites. love them all.

I hope this helps my partner!!! =)

Cheena- love your answers BUT- at 4, you are NOT behind. I am doing 1991 - my son is 21 1/2!!!!! LOL We just keep plugging along and getting them done as we go is all. I've stopped stressing about it & I'm enjoying looking back and remembering all those little 1-yr milestones and falling asleep in the highchair with spaghetti sauce in his hair.....

Hi everyone
I have officially returned from the land of tea parties,play doh and Smushmellows!!! it was such a blessing to have my daughter and grandaughter here!!! they left last night and after a few hours of the ugly cries I was ready to get back to it!!! I almost have all the elmers glue cleaned up off the table and floor....but not sure i am ever going to stop finding sequins or get all this glitter vacummed up!!! we had quite a crafty time!!! Unfortunately I am WAY behind on almost evertything that I should have been doing while they were here and will have to spend the rest of the week working like a mad woman to get caught up but it was worth every second!!! Hope everyone is doing well.....have missed all of you!!!

Cass I'm so glad you spent every possible moment enjoying them. You will have many fond memories to hold on to in those moments you miss them. You have to grab those opportunities and not let anything but the most important things get in the way- like feeding the dog or something

When I pick up my DH from WOCS on Wednesday- I told him he is MINE- we are going to the local Ren Fest one of the days on the weekend and fixing up the spare room for when his folks visit in June, but other than that- I plan to enjoy every moment with him as he leaves in July for an 8mo school. Thankfully during that one we'll be able to talk every day and all and see each other off and on & he's a little closer to travel to. Still not easy.
