I promised some ladies I would repost the Group Character Swap, so here goes.

I know many of us take lots of pictures while down Disney and I know I don't want to have a "special" page for each character. So I decided to make theme swaps for certain character groups.

Please read the Nitty Gritty part of the post/email. It will tell you everything you need to know about the spot you would like.


This is a BAZZILL CARDSTOCK ONLY swap that means you can only use Bazzill paper in the colors that were picked. That's so all items sort of look the same and will make a nice kit when used together.

I know there are ALOT of rules but when I'm in the mood to swap I rather know everything while I'm in the mood. I hate having to email hostesses then waiting for a reply on something. By the time she gets back to me who knows what type of mood I will be in. If you would like to see the results of a swap that used these rules I will send a link as soon as I receive the last items.

if we don't get anymore takers I might have to postpone this swap a bit. :sad:

Ohana 4
02-06-2006, 01:41 AM
I wouldn't postpone it altogether . How about just taking off the last 2 groups? I think you'll be able to fill the rest of the spots. And maybe push the due date out a bit. To May or something, since many of us are in other swaps as well. I know I am currently in 4 others.
I'm really looking forward to this one.

pjpoohbear
02-06-2006, 10:12 AM
I like the idea of pushing it out a bit, end of April or Mid May (before the holidays). I won't comment on the last two groups as I am not in them.

Penny

joanne1968
02-06-2006, 01:05 PM
I am easy but I would say ditch the last two as suggested, I would be okay with going with what we have on the others, there will be plenty to get going on a layout for me without a couple of elements

aunts2topher
02-07-2006, 01:00 PM
I agree with the past few posts -- extending the time by four to six weeks would be good, and if the few who are signed up for the last two groups don't mind, dropping them may be a good idea at this time.

Sorry :( I haven't been on the disboard for a couple of days. I wanted to finish a Disney scrapbook I was making for my Godmother (for a Christmas gift that is late lol). I started the 1st of Jan and finished it yesterday woohoo 73 pages done.

thanks everyone for your suggestions. It had me thinking
I was thinking of removing the store bought surprise spot from all of the groups. Dropping the last 2 groups (for now)as suggested, moving the due date to May 31. and if the spots that are left don't fill by Sunday I will close the swap with what we have. How ever many spots are filled is what we get. Is that OK with you guys?
Let me know.
Again sorry for my delay with replying

Just an idea.

Do we really need Deco squares, I know they are nice, but hey we have a journal box, a shaker/piecing and a tag along with boarders/topper and photo mat. For the groups that still need Deco squares filled can we drop them? We should all have enough scarps, ha ha, to make what we want ourselves for our pages.

Then we only need a photo mat in group 3.

yes those exact colors.

here's a tip for the future

Here's what I do when I get bazzill paper.
I take my square punch punch a square from 1 page of each color. label the back of the square. punch a hole in the corner and hang it on a ring. works well for a swatch. anything I need a certain color I look through the ring for the name, if it's not there then I never bought it. if it is I take the swatch ring to my cropper hopper full of bazzill pape and match the color and there I find the color I need.

and I have enough Bazzil in stock that I could make a road to the moon and back so I don't think I will be using your plan anytime soon - lol

I am trying to use what I have and then I am going to buy the MEGA block of bazzil ;) 3 sheets of EVERY color and the chips (I could never ruin a 12x12 by punching one square out of it - lol - I cherish my paper ;) :cheer2:

I'm sorry :sad2: you decided not to join. BUT i understand.
where would one buy the mega block thingy you are talking about and how much would something like that cost. :confused3 Me wants to buy some :thumbsup2

Spinning
02-12-2006, 05:59 PM
Have to admit that is why I won't join in one of these swaps. I don't like the texture of the black required on here. I love the raven. Actually I prefer that texture to any of the other bazzill textures. I think it looks much richer.
I have no problems with a color palet but I think the shade requirement is a little over the top.
Ahhh and as for the mega blocks of paper...gotta know the right person! I know a lady who runs crops and carries only bazzill paper and die cuts/cutting systems (some adhesives too) She will allow me to buy in bulk, it isn't a ton cheaper, in some respects very little but I am addicted to raven and pomegranite! and one shade of blue, can't remember the name but it is very dark. So i bought it in 50 packs....So I would ask around at any crops you go to. If the vendor sells it they may order it in lots of 25 or 50 for you.

nicurn
02-12-2006, 06:32 PM
yup you do have to know the right person. I of course have no idea what colour names my bazzill is, I don't particularly care myself. I just use what looks right. (and if I have to I just take a scrap piece back to the store and have no problems). I'm with just me, gotta use up what I have right now and then restock. maggie

I am to lazy to go through all my favorites to find which vendor sells the entire set as one -
but here is a link to a place that sells it divided into 2 sets

My Bazzill isn't marked (for color) either.

My favorite LSS was having a sale. All loose paper was on sale at 20% off. That brought the Bazzill down to 40 a sheet so I bought 2 sheets of every color they had in stock. :cool1: There's just no way I could ever remember the name of each color.

I'd like to say I'm all stocked up on paper now but you know the next time I see a sale ... :moped:

I guess it's really easy for me since I can only get Bazzill off line. So I know exactly what colors are what.
Guess you can say I'm lucky in a way :)

I'm actually getting to know all my colors by having that little swatch ring I made. Would that be called a sad case of addiction? Getting to know all those Bazzill colors :rotfl:
