Sign up close: Nov 16th
Due date: Nov 30th
Return ship date: Dec 4th

This is a full kit swap using Fancy Pants Designs Home for Christmas collection. Use only the papers from that line or good quality coordinating card stock (Bazzil, ect)

The idea is that each person will chose a part of the kit and make one per participant in the swap. When it's done and swapped, everyone should have a full kit with lots of embellishments and personal touches to assemble however they chose.

Rules:

1. Use ONLY the pp from the Home for Christmas line. Use the actual paper, not scans, copies, etc. Use only good quality (Bazzil, etc) cardstock that coordinates with the colors in the Home for Christmas line. "Close enough" might not match someone elses "close enough"

2. Whatever item you sign up for, make one per person in the swap. If you sign up for multiple items and want to end up with multiple kits, let me know, or I'll still only count you as one. I will keep a count of participants at the bottom of this post.

3. Do your best. Clean cuts, securely glued. If you don't have the time/inclination/creative juices to create something homemade, we can add pre-made/no-fuss items upon request...such as 12x12 pieces of patterned paper, pre-made dies, etc. This collection has a lot of extras that would make great contributions.

4. Check in at least once per week, and follow through on your commitment in a timely manner. If your items are not received within 3 days of the due date, they will be sent back to you. Please don't flake...it's just not cool.

5. Send your goodies in a 12x12 baggie. You can put smaller items in a smaller baggie inside, but other peoples creations/contributions may be large, and I'd hate for your stuff to get damaged when being shipped back to you. Label the 12x12 bag with your screen name and the swap name. Include also a small baggie with a return label to you and the same postage you paid, plus 4 extra 10cent stamps, or close to it. I will return extra postage.

6. In a padded/protective envelope/box large enough to hold 12x12 paper, ship your goodies to:
Kris Bayle
8080 Doyle Rd
Laingsburg MI 48848

7. Have fun. That's what scrapbooking's all about. Post your creations as you complete them, then others can coordinate/avoid duplicates.

Each item on the list includes the minimum expected...feel free to do more if you so desire.

Embellishements include, but are not limited to, paper piecing, stickles, gems, brads, chalking, distressing, inking, embossing, stitching, etc....but do not use stickers not included in the set.

Ty!

Just a reminder, I need at least a 12x12 zip lock baggie to protect your kit(s), at least a 12x12 padded envelope to ship it back. It costs about $5 to ship 1 kit, 6-6.50 for 2, 8ish for 3.

I get mine from Meijer (mass grocery/retailer in the Great White North). I have found both at Super Walmart and at dollar stores, too...but those are more hit and miss. If anyone doesn't have access to them, I can provide them, they'd be about $2 for both (envies end up being about 1.75 ea)

I am using a pizza box that I get kits in from Club Scrap. They are perfect for shipping this kind of stuff in. Plenty of room so that nothing gets squashed.

I had to bury our 2 new puppies this week after a long, hard battle with parvo. So I am going to my mom's for a couple days to decompress and get to go to a Joanns for the first time in 6 years. If I don't find the papers there then I will be going on eBay and ordering them

I'm so sorry about your puppies. We lost our 11 yr old cat last year after an illness and people didn't understand...it was just a cat. But they're not...they're little members of the family.

My heart goes out to you!

I am so sorry, but I am late on mine. I had to go out of town last week for a funeral and I was not able to finish mine. I will be able to complete and mail before the end of the week. If it would be easier you can hold mine and I can mail tags directly to everyone (I just need their addresses) or I will have them in the mail by Tuesday. Just let me know what you would like me to do and I am so sorry I am late.

If you are still up to suggestions I really like Kaisercraft Secret Admirer,


American Crafts Family Ties,



and Bo Bunny Love Letters



The Pickled Pear is pretty too. Too many to choose from.
