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

This is a full kit swap using SEI's Berry Melody 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 Berry Melody line. Use the actual paper, not scans, copies, etc. Use only good quality (Bazzil, etc) cardstock that coordinates with the colors in the Berry Melody 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.

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.

There really never has been a size requirement. I'd say your best judgement would be fine...so long as they're big enough to fit an average picture.

I have everything for this swap! I believe everyone in this one is in at least one of the other two, however, and I'm still waiting for two packages on those. I'll give it a couple more days, then I'll mail back, with or without them.

Finished kit that is on it's way. Those of you close to me (there were a couple) may have received them today or tomorrow..others should be saturday or monday.

Of course, kits may vary slightly on embellishments and extras



And I think one of the papers I put in the picture was the wrong one....the striped one I think was my left over from my dies I made.
