Come join in the fun! This is a May and Mother's Day themed kit swap. The following items are needed in this kit (minimum):

2 - 8x8 themed papers of the group you're in
2 - 8x8 matching cardstock
3 - handmade goodies to match the papers
2 - 12" ribbons to coordinate with the papers OR 1 - 24" ribbon
1 - Handmade bling item
The above list are the minimum requirements. You can add more and are encouraged to put your personal touch to your kit. Make it something you would love to receive.

This month's categories are:
Mother's Day - this one is obvious

Emerald color scheme - Emerald is the birthstone of May

Memorial flowers - For this kit your hand made items will be flowers with the additional of a bling item of your choice.

RULES:
1)You must check in at least once a week.
2)Your kit must be FINISHED by 5/18/12.
3)you must post a picture of your kit. Then I'll post on the front page.
4) PM me with your name and address no later than 5/15/12. (If you swapped the past two months, then I should still have it.)
5) I will pm you on 5/19/12 with your pal's name and address. If you haven't completed your kit, by the deadline, you won't be able to swap out. It's not fair for some to be on time while others wait until the last minute and don't get it done in time or forget about it and someone is left out. If everyone has their kits finished or in the process of finishing them, we can swap earlier!
6) Most important, HAVE FUN!!!


Sign ups will be taken until 5/15/2012.

I'm going to have to bow out of this one...too much going on in May/early June with Em's graduation.

I'll see you all in the June swap, though!

Ok, I'm going to change the other categories.. I thought I might attract some people with young boys on the space/martiens.

If anyone has any ideas that you would like to see/exchange let me know.

If you think you might still do space, I might be up for that (but not in a little-boy way) - the Air and Space Museum and Udvar-Hazy Center are two of our stops on next week's trip to Washington DC.

LOL.. sure, as soon as I change it, then you guys want it.. Ok, I'm leaving all the categories up.

I tried to find the one web site I found the historical dates, when I found that May is also National Strawberry month. But I think around it's celebrated in June, but I could be wrong. That would be a cute kit to put together.

Im interested but am wondering about the handmade goodies and the hand made bling do you all have an example of what you have gotten in the past? I have a ton of Handmade swap stuff I will never use because it was not quality. BTW I love the strawberry idea!!!

Hello Melissa, We welcome all levels of crafters/artists here. I'm not sure of what you mean by the quality. There is a minimum that is required in each kit. Some people just give that, some give much more. Some people have more experience and perhaps the quality of their work might show, but that's how we all learn. This month, one of the kits you have to make three hand made flowers. I have seen some beautiful flowers made by most of the people signed up. A lot depends on the theme of the kit. Before swapping out pals, everyone has to post a picture of their finished kit.

Here's the link to March's swap, there was some nice kits: March kit swap
And February: February kit swap

Here's my Mother's Day kit. I love it. My mom died after a long illness when I was 15. I was thinking how cool it would have been to have grown up with her and done arts and crafts. She took art classes as a young adult and I'm sure she would have loved to scrapbook. My daughter wants nothing to do with it. I can only remember one Mother's Day that her and I have celebrated. And she's 15.

You asked how I made the puffy paint flourish... I put the paper over a clear stamp image and dotted the paint onto the paper! Someone had showed us a similar technique last year and I had wanted to try it but never thought about it until about 2-3 weeks ago until I got one that someone else made. Of course mine didn't turn out as nice, but that was my first one!

Last night I looked up my favorite tutorial on making paper flowers only to find they had deleted it.. I was devastated. So, I went to my favorite designers to see if they had anything new and starting linking to this one to that one.. and found several on roses. I tried several techniques and none weren't quite working for me.. (doesn't help when they try to translate to English and leave out a word or two) So, I started playing around with my inks and embossing powders and went to bed with these three:

Then when I went outside this morning, the sun is so bright and and my roses are blooming and my clematis. So I took some pictures... tell me is this a paper rose or a real rose?

If you're making them out of paper, or I imagine felt too, depending on how big you wanted the loops, the key part is how big to keep the base part of the flower. The longer it is, then the bulkier the flower is. You can practice on notebook paper or scrap paper of your choice. Start out with a 1.5" and fold in half. Glue the bottom insides together with glue tape, is the easiest. Then you can either measure every 1/4" or estimate it and cut a slit down about 1/2". Then this is the tricky part.. I used needled nose pliers and gripped one end.. but glued one side along the bottom edge and then roll it trying to keep it as even. Then you sort of fan out the flower petal and tape a 1" circle to the bottom.

I have three sets of flowers I made for mine and different other things. I found some awesome pearlized cardstock that matches the pp I'm using perfectly. I refurbished a gift tag someone gave me last year. Just having fun with some punches and inks and what-nots.

I'm working on my emerald kit tonight. I had drawn a total blank and had went through all my papers two weeks ago and couldn't come up with anything. I went through them again tonight, and found some to work with and it's coming together. I finished my May Flowers kit last night, so I'll take pictures tomorrow of both kits and get them posted, that's if my daughter hasn't lost our camera. If she did, I should be able to scan them on my printer.

ok, my emerald kit is finished, just have to let the Stickles and puffy paint dry over night. I'm happy with the way it turned out! and I didn't use any of my new toys.

Can't wait to see everyone else' kits

Okay moms is made and one of mine is almost finsihed. I smashed my left thumb really bad last night at work and had to go to urgent care when I woke up this morning. I have one just about done, have to make the sparkly handmade for it and take pic, and then I am doing the flower one, I know what flowers I am making for it and the other handmade, I just have to pull the papers for it. I will get it done and post the pics right after work tonight, but it might be like 2 or 3 in the morning hun. sorry, but the urgent care took longer then I hoped and I had to work last night til 1am. I work secon d shift.

Moms turned out great, she made one of the handmades with tinkerbell on it...looks awesome.

my mothers day kits is red, burgundies, browns, with some greens and blues. Its really cute, I used the love letters paper stack, it is too cute. I made a matchbook, photo mat, and 2 die cut 3-d circle punches that are scalloped and one has a "M" on it and the other has a flower metal brad on it, they look really good. Anyways I will post the pics later. So sorry for the last minute ness. I will have them all posted my late this evening or by 3 am by the latest hun.

Again sorry Sally, didnt think I was going to injure my thumb.

Waiting on one more kit and then I can swap names! I'll be doing garage sales later in the morning. They're have a street sale a few streets away from me in a couple of hours. My daughter and I put a movie in and I think we both fell asleep as soon as we put it in... a bit too much drama in our neighborhood this evening, actually at our house. her bff got into a fight with the girl across the street and the poor girl's father had been on his honey moon and I had to call him up and fill him on all the week's drama but mostly needed to have him take a look at his daughter's head. The mother is a nurse but was at work, and is not one to win the "mother the year" award, but she did pull through tonight. The father called her but had to bring up all the other craap, but the mother did call the police, came here after work, saw how bad the daughter's head was and took her to the hospital. I was so relieved. I wouldn't have thought twice to take my daughter as bad as her head was swollen. And she restored a little a little bit of respect with me, if not as a mother at least as someone in the medical field.


Any who, I lost my address after last month's swap. I'm pretty sure it got knocked into my waste can. My desk got very disorganized last month. The swap ran late into my other two swaps along with my all my personal paperwork and everything piled up. Then every other Wed I clean off my desk for garbage day and that was the same week. SO... I need everyone's address, except for Pebbles.

AND ONE MORE THING>>>>

Starting next month, I'm going to add a little extra contest/challenge. For those that use their kit from the previous month or two will be able to get their name put in for a drawing for a small RAK from me. I want to encourage everyone to use their kits and share them with the rest of us. We all love swaps, but how many of us have a ton of swap stuff at home that piles up and we forget what we have? Each month I try to do themes that we can either do lo's or make cards. We mostly cater to lo's but if start thinking ahead, perhaps we can do kits to be used in the following month.

My bad Sally! I wanted to take another pic because I did add more things to my last kit but I got in late from work and had to crank out a lo real quick to take to a client this morning. So here is the pic BUT everything is not in the pic, there is more.

May kit swap By Ms_Pebbles

Yay!! All the kits are done, now I'm just waiting on addresses. I have Tj's, Terry's and Pebbles.
This time, I've started an online data base, so hopefully I won't delete that file!

Ok, everyone was sent their pal's names and addresses!! Let's try to have them in the mail by Friday. Let the fun begin.

Don't forget. Beginning with next month's swap, There will be a mini contest/challenge for anyone who uses their kit in a lo, card or project and posts a pic in their gallery, we'll vote on it and I'll send out a small RAK. Anyone participating in the swap the previous two months are eligible. That means if you swapped in April or May.

We go to the trouble of putting them together, lets use them and show them off! Give credit to the person who made it. You don't have to participate in next month's swap to be eligible.

oh, and my kits were mailed out today!

Usually, I try to mix up who you swap with from month to month if I pick the same names.. since I picked the names before I found my address book, I kept the names as is. I think two people had the same person for two kits. I usually try to mix and match that, too, so you can get a variety, but this time, I needed to get them swapped out as I have to stay on top of all my other swaps and challenges. I have a lot of appointments coming up between tomorrow and the end of the month and I'm trying to keep everything on a schedule.

Yay, happy mail... I sent one of my partners to Pebbles by accident, she's going to be forwarding it on to the right person. I was excited to get everything mailed out early this month and when I was packaging things up for her other swap, I put a kit in there too. I think because I gave her my name for one of the kits.

My other two kits went to the same person, so hoping she got hers yesterday.

TGIF and it's a 3 day weekend! That means at least 3 days with no calls from my daughter's school!!

You did post you got your Mother's day kit, Pebbles. And I got my emerald kit from you, looks so much better irl, I love it and can't wait to use it! Love all the handmades!

I've been crossing off on the front page as people post when they get their kits in the mail.. so if I miss anyone, let me know! I'm trying this way to see if it's easier to keep track.

Uh oh, I received a flower kit that was supposed to go to Pebbles, lol.. I'll get that sent out to you Pebbles. I'm laughing Jessica, because I sent Pebbles a kit that was supposed to go to someone else!! How do you get away with only paying $1.30 for postage? My po charges me a minimum of $1.95 to send anywhere.

fyi: it's missing a flower. I double checked with the picture on the front page, there was three in the pic, but only 2 in the envie. I threw a couple of goodies in there.

The May flower kit mix up was my fault. I had it in the chart the right way, but when I wrote it down I messed up. Because I had Jessica..

Ok, I think I totally screwed up. TJ, did you get duplicate mother day kits?

Melissa, are you still checking in here with us? Did you get anything yet?

Ok, so I only screwed up on giving Jessica the wrong name.. whew.. So you got Pebbles' flower kit like you were supposed to. You confused me!

So, I mailed off Jessica's flower kit to Pebbles earlier today. Hopefully, Melissa received both of her kits. I sent her a pm asking her to confirm, then we should be able to close this forum as swapped out.
