Sign up close: July 9th
Due date: August 2nd
Return ship date: within 1 week of Due date

This is a full kit swap using Little Yellow Bicycles Fern and Forrest Boy 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 Fern and Forrest Boy line. Use the actual paper, not scans, copies, etc. Use only good quality (Bazzil, etc) cardstock that coordinates with the colors in the Fern and Forrest Boy 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 return postage, averaging $4.50 for 1 kit, $5.50 for 2, etc, or close to it. I will return extra postage. 3 kits jumps up to approx $11 shipping as it goes over weight and pushes it to priority.

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.

Mommie75 - you can do the cardstock or canvas stickers if you want (but I'd need them divided up into the 16 parts)or the chipboard dies....or the journaling spots with varnish. Let me know what you'd like...I'll make it work in there.

No, you're not limited to using the Stars paper. Kris posted the paper so that the paper won't be duplicated by someone else that is purchasing 12x12 paper and that everyone else that is making handmades, knows the theme/colors in the paper. It just makes it easy if I am making die cuts to see what colors to work with. I hope I answered your question and didn't confuse you.

The paper is up there because that is one of the pp's someone is providing. SassySuzi put the papers being provided with each kit on the ones shes hosting and I thought it was a good idea.

You can use any of the papers from this line...but you'll definitely have that star one included in your kit

Yes, that was a wonderful response! I was thrilled to know that is why. It does make life easier to know what is bought. This is a great line and I bought the whole kit, so I want to spread the love to the entire line. I find I make each photo mat different due to thinking I can do the next one "better." HA! If only I would just make one and duplicate it, but noooooooo.....

The paper for Kit 1 came in yesterday. Very cute paper. Now I have to work on the die cuts for the second kit...

done with this one, foxes and clouds for the die cuts, mushroom frames, and pins. will wait a bit to send, as I'd like to get all my swaps sent out at one time.

I'll actually be on your side of town next weekend, Pam. Doing a weekend crop at a hotel near the corner of Saginaw and 96 if you wanted to just drop off

That might work, will have to see what's going on. Is it a Sat/Sun crop?
