For this swap you will be making die cuts using a Cricut, Cuttlebug, Sizzix, Silhouette, anything you have to make die cuts with. You will be sending them to me and I will swap them out and return back to you with the category you pick.

Due Date: In my hands by December 9 , 2012 so that means you will need to have them in the mail before that.

Flakers need not join!! You must check in at least once a week, it only takes a minute to say "jci" or add a smile. If you need to drop out of the swap please pm me so I can fill your spot.

The Swap: For this swap you will
1. Pick the categories you want to make die cuts for.
2. make a die cut 1 per person in your group, and bag each die with your name, sb.com name, and group name on it then bag each category together.
3. send to me with the same amount of postage and 4 extra 10 cent stamps (your unused postage will be returned to you) I will reuse your mailer unless it is damaged. Also, please remember to include a return mailing label. If it's peel-n-stick, great, if not on a piece of white/light colored cardstock is fine and I can tape it on. The return mailing labels you get from Easter seals is too small if you want me to reuse your envelope. I find the best thing to do is to affix it to a regular envelope and I can tape that onto the return envelope. Plus it's easier to keep any return postage in.

SEND TO:
Sally McCracken
4603 Maplecrest Ave
Parma, OH 44134


If you use a die cut that has layers on the design please use the layers and glue them also. Please send in work that you would be happy to use on your own pages!

Any questions feel free to ask

If you can think of additional categories, let me know and I'll add them.

Overseas/Canadian participants, please pm me and I'll give you instructions for return postage.

I'll do each.

If this doesn't take off, would you consider doing a "blinged" die instead of a basic dies and maybe only send in two per category and get two back?

I have a lot of misc dies from being addicted to your swaps and am wondering if the lull is from others being flooded, too...thought maybe peeps might be more apt to keep going if there's less coming back but more adorned.

Just a thought

Sure, I just had some send me a pm yesterday that inquired about joining. Since I started making more embellishments and cards this year, I really started using my die cuts. I've read a lot of comments from other people who felt like me at first, guilty for using what they got from others to make things to give to someone else. Then, last month, I read someone post they were going through all their swap stuff they've received over the years and that was going back since sb.com got started!! What good is something if you're not going to use it in a project? I think the purpose was to share die cuts that we don't have, papers we don't have, etc. Last year, I remember 3 people made the same die cut on their Cricut, but all three were different because of the different sizes, colors and papers used. Sometimes too, I think of having a misc category. If someone is looking for a particular die cut that they don't have, trade for something else.

I can't seem to find the pictures of the ones I did last Christmas, but here's Easter:



The categories were Blinged Easter, Cutesy Easter, Traditional Easter and St Pattys Day




And this one's categories were birdhouses, Mothers Day and Rain.

Ok, Kris. The examples of the die cuts that you displayed were embellished. This swap does not contain embellished die cuts, right? I apologize if I am asking too many questions, but if I am going to consider joining I want to make sure that I do at least everything that the swap requires:)

embellishing is optional. I just do it because I prefer to, but it's not required.

I made a poinsettia flower for another swap. It turned out so pretty, so I'm going to do that for my anything goes. I have to make some Christmas cards and years ago, a friend of mine gave me this card with the story behind the poinsettia plant. I would love to find that and make a card with that story to go along with it. I have some pretty K & Co paper that would make a nice card, too.

How about snowmen and snowflakes. I do not really have anything to do for Thanksgiving or Christmas greeting. But I could participate with snowmen, santa, candy canes. Let me know if you come up with a spot for me.

Sounds good Kris. I finished my Thanksgiving one today.

Georgia, we'll probably do snowflakes and snowmen next month for January. We have a couple people wrapping this one up already. Usually I put in a cut-off date when you can sign up, but I was having a hectic month when I set it up and forgot.

Ok...mine are done, but I had problems cutting details at the end. So I ended up doing more of a title instead of a greeting and its fairly large. If Toni's envy is too small for it, mail it back to me and I'll send it directly to her.

I'll be postal as soon as I get my recipes done.
