Ms_Pebbles

Hey everyone! I’m coming to you yet again with another swap!!!
I was asked to host this one by a couple of lovely ladies and of course I was eager to oblige!
So here we go! I actually went to the thrift store with my oldest dd the other day and of course found allot of different puzzles for sale. I picked up 2 boxes of 24 piece puzzles at 69cents a piece! You can’t beat that! Then I saw some brand new ones at the Dollar Tree, so you can pretty much find them without a problem! Here’s the rundown!

Puzzles Pieces:
Let’s stick with the 24 piece size puzzles for altering. I measured the ones in my boxes and they all measured to about 3 inches or just under and I think that’s a good size to use as an embellishment and or on the cover of a mini album. If you get the puzzle pieces from a box that has a higher number (quantity) but the pieces still measure out to about that size, that’s fine. I just don’t think we should use the tiny ones or the big gigantic ones!

Altering:
Please use a minimum of 5 embellishments/techniques to alter your pieces.
Ex: 1. Cover with sb paper 2. Ink the edges 3. Use some ribbon 4. Add a stamped image or die cut 5. Add some bling or stickles
Again, this is just an example of how easy it can be to alter a puzzle piece but still turn out fabulous! I just altered this one before I started this thread!
I covered it with printed paper. I cut the paper just a tid bit larger and used a emery board to distress the edges. After that I inked the edges with some brown ink. Added the ribbon at the bottom and used a little piece of transparency in the middle. Added some bling and a flower and viola!

My 1st altered Puzzle piece! By Ms_Pebbles

Swap amount:
We will alter the pieces to fit the categories below. You can send as many as 4 pieces per category or as little as 1. The amount you send in, (up to 4) will be the same amount that you get back. This way we will not have to worry about flakers!

Due Date:
Sign ups will be open from now until May 1st and the pieces will be due to me (not post marked) by June 2nd! That's over a month to create. I am a real stickler for deadlines and due dates, so please be on time or your items will be returned to you. Overseas crafters are welcomed but your creating time will be less since your packages will take longer to get here. PM me for address if you don't already have it.

Return Postage:
You have the option of sending return postage with your package or sending it via PayPal. The PayPal address is pebblesh (underscore) [email protected] If you send postage with your package please make sure you include the amount that it cost to get it here plus 3 extra stamps. If I don't need the extra stamps, I will send them back to you. Bag each set in a baggie and insert a note stating which category it's for and your screen name.

Please let me know if I missed anything and if you want any categories added!

Clarification question. I was planning to use a cluster of 3 gears on the little boy puzzle pieces. Does this count as one embellishment or three? Just want to make sure I'm playing within the rules.

Thanks for asking that Amanda! I won't be counting your bellies or techniques. I pretty much just put that in there so we won't have anyone send in a puzzle piece with just some paper on it! LOL Go with your flow and have fun with it!

Pebbles on Michelle's note - if we want we can make a piece per person in the swap can't we?

but naturally not required to do that - make enough for each person. that is our own choosing

Thanks sooo much ladies for the offer of giving me some of your letters. But I will just concentrate on this swap. I will catch the next one.. Again thank you all so much for the offer..

I am going to the dollar store to look for puzzles on tomorrow. I can't wait to decorate these. I have some ideas that I hope I will be able to pull off.

Have a wonderful day!!!

These are altered puzzle pieces from a swap I hosted a few years back.

I bought ten of those dollar store puzzles and put pieces together so that there were ten blocks about the size of an ATC.

Then I sent everyone in the swap 10 of the same blocks of pieces and had them alter it and put their photo on plus a little something about themselves.

They sent the finished pieces to me (all but 2 ladies came through) and then everyone got a completed puzzle back - except for those two missing pieces.

I called it the "Pieces of Me" puzzle swap.

JohnniesGirl - Those pieces are cute!

Bonnie - That sounds like a great swap! The outcome from a swap like that would be a great inspirational piece for a scraproom wall! Hmmm... any thoughts on hosting another? LOL

Erin - I love your "Edgy" pieces!

Ms. Pebbles - Please add me to both of the new groups.

Question - Since this isn't a set swap, are all of our pieces for each category supposed to be the same or can each one be different?

but, no they don't have to be the same, all just need to fit the category. I think doing them all different makes for more variety!

I have to agree with Nicole - I love how much traffic your threads have. It's like you have your own little subdivision in the SB.com city. Thanks for posting such awesome threads!

My 19 month old son insisted that we go bye-bye a half an hour before we had to be to dinner, so we hit the dollar store tonight. Hoping to get crafty soon!

der... i totally forgot to grab a puzzle at the dollar store too... i had a few things i needed to pick up but didn't write a list. when i pulled into the parking spot in front of the dollar store i said, "why am i here again?"... my husband shrugged and we picked up some el pollo loco and went home. NOW i remember! i did pick up the new scrapbooks etc. mag at the grocery store while i was out. I'm not really in the habbit of buying magazines, but this one had some really cool ideas in it and i didn't have time to really scan through it real quick and try to remember them.

Due Date:
Sign ups will be open from now until May 1st and the pieces will be due to me (not post marked) by June 2nd! That's over a month to create. I am a real stickler for deadlines and due dates, so please be on time or your items will be returned to you. Overseas crafters are welcomed but your creating time will be less since your packages will take longer to get here. PM me for address if you don't already have it.

I hate when I get to a store and forget why I'm there and I also do the same thing with mag's when I go to the grocery store!
Kevin always say "Bell...just buy the dang thing!" LOL

my husband always tells me to buy them too... but then again my husband is always pushing me to buy things for myself. I think that he thinks, if he lets me have more STUFF that i wont be so grumpy. I don't want more [email protected], i just want him to do the dishes once and a while like he promised! When we got married he said that in his house growing up, who ever cooks doesn't clean... well, i must have only dreamt that i cooked dinner for the last four years, because i know that i've been the one cleaning.

Anyway, the new Scrapbooks Etc. mag had a really cool project on the front cover and it caught my eye... does anyone subscribe to any scrapbook mags? I don't currently. I used to be subscribed to all of them, but there were a lot more back then. I don't even know what is around anymore... i barely ever see them at the grocery store... only when i got to Ms or JoAnns. I would like to subscribe to something, just because i like getting fun things in the mail to look at... hello, i guess thats why i love swaps. Anyway, does anyone have any recommendations?

are any of you ladies part of the design team for your LSS? I was just asked to be one, I did my first project for them. The paper maché dress form... it was a super fun project! You should all alter them, I think you ladies would enjoy it...

I like the colors that you used on your dress form..


Yes when scrapbooking was first started we had a couple of LSS's. Now there are only 2 that are "near" me.. I say "near" because I have to do a 30 min or more drive to each store. All the other stores have went out of businss because of Michael's, Joann's and Hobby Lobby. But I like the LSS's because they have the new stuff. Where Hobby Lobby they have some paper but some of their paper they have had for years. I know because I pass it so often that I think I have memorized what they have.. LOL
