Well, with summer coming to an end, I'm ready to get back to the swap biz! This is a simple swap. For each group you're in, you will make an 8-inch title topper and a tag. This is ideal for 8x8 books and even 8 1/2 x 11 if you add some more elements or tend to use alot of pics.

The title topper should be 8 inches wide, be double/triple matted, and contain no handwriting. Computer-generated, stickers, or die-cut is fine. Extra embellishments would be great!

The tag can be a traditional tag with eyelet and fiber, or you can get creative and make a license plate or library pocket or mini file folder, or other "signage" (think oval or star or other shape). Should also be at least double matted and embellished somehow.

I'll start off the groupings and see how the interest goes from there... I might combine or move around the groups.

Due date will be November 1st! Please plan to mail to arrive by the 1st. I hate making people wait to get their goodies back.

Groups will be limited to 6-8, except for the Epcot Countries, which I'd like to have a complete set done (11??).

Thanks!!

Ohhh great idea. Thanks.

So I pick one character or ride per group?

bubbasmom99
08-07-2006, 01:56 PM
Yes, one per group, unless you want to get more than one set back :) -- they are good for gift albums, after all!

You can sign up for as many groups as you want, but please don't overextend yourself (not you specifically Roxy -- I know you always do a bang-up job!)

I've lurked for long time, wanting to sign up for a swap but they usually seem complicated, especially for a first timer/novice. I'm excited about this one because it seems simpler (is that a word?). :Pinkbounc This is a good swap for a first timer without becoming commpletely overwhelmed. Could you please sign me up for the cruise group? I'll have to think about what I'm going to do and let you know. I'll have to have my stuff done earlier because I'll be on the cruise when the stuff is due. Thanks.

bubbasmom99
08-07-2006, 02:13 PM
Welcome hollydog! Which cruise are you on? We're doing the 12/9 double dip! I can't wait!

The ladies here are awesome to swap with. I hope you enjoy it!

We're going on the 7 day Eastern during Halloween (Oct. 28th). It's our 2nd DCL cruise and we're really excited! My DS9 and DD6 can't wait. My son keeps asking when we can go do he can go back to the lab. Put me down for Castaway Cay. Thanks for welcoming me. I look at this as a learning experience so I'm sure I'll have lots for questions!

okay I cannot believe I am asking because I am doing other swaps. I have the time for swapping it just means generally less scrapping :rotfl:

Would Enchanted Tiki Room be a MK ride (group 4) or is that a show?

Hi all. As if I don't already have at least 4 swaps due on 10/31 or 11/1, I'd like EPCOT - America. Thanks! Such fun!

Mickster
08-07-2006, 03:33 PM
I see AlexWyattMommy is quicker than me. Let me think some more...

YodasMom
08-07-2006, 03:34 PM
I'll join, too......

Would it be possible to add a group for restaurants?

Of the ones listed, I will do

Group 3b- MK Lands----Frontierland

Group 4 - MK Rides----Jungle Cruise

Group 5 - Epcot Countries----Japan

Group 7 - Animal Kingdom----Discovery Island

I''m doing the Wonder cruise over Halloween, too, and will be out at sea when this is due! I'm undecided on a topic for the cruise theme for this swap, so if I think of one that moves me, I'll re-post. I'm already in the one due in Sept.

Mickster
08-07-2006, 03:35 PM
Is there going to be a resturant group? Or a transportation group? I have pictures on boats and on busses and the monorail. Just a thought...

jennyL
08-07-2006, 03:41 PM
Ok count me in. I love to Swap.

Thats all for now but I'll think about more.

StitchIsOurHero
08-07-2006, 08:50 PM
I really like the idea of this swap! Could I have:

Group 1: Lilo

Group 3b: Toontown Fair (is it ok to take this since it's a different group than 3a, and there's already a TTF in there?)

Group 4: Philharmagic (I know it's an attraction, but does that count? It's DH's favorite!)

Group 6: Great Movie Ride

Group 7: Camp Minnie-Mickey

If you open a restaurant group, could I do Restaurantosaurus?


I tried to read through what everyone had posted, but if I duplicated someone's, just let me know and I'll change. :thumbsup2

bubbasmom99
08-07-2006, 09:11 PM
Okay, we're all up to date so far. A couple of questions:

Penny (pjpoohbear) - can we move your Prime Time cafe to the restaurants category, and do you want to pick another Studios theme (a ride or attraction?).

fanofthemouse - Canada was already taken. I can start you on Canada in a 2nd group (not sure we'll fill it) or you can pick another country. Also, did you mean Lights Motors Action for the stunt show?

mickster - I added restaurants. do you want to join?

I can add transportation too, but I'm not sure what other categories there are... (boats, busses and monorail are the only things that come to mind).

Mickster
08-07-2006, 09:19 PM
Thanks for the restuarant offer, but I think 2 groups - one of which is the countries, is probably enough for me. This is a great idea! :cheer2:

New England Eeyore
08-07-2006, 09:27 PM
I have to get in on this Epcot countries one - a complete set would really come in handy. Can I do my heritage proud and have Italy?

I'm still thinking about other groups. Great idea!

bubbasmom99
08-07-2006, 10:02 PM
fanofthemouse -- that leaves you with Great Britain in Epcot, if you want it...

New England Eeyore
08-07-2006, 10:02 PM
Okay, I'm done thinking!

In addition to Italy in Group 5 could I have:
Group 4b: Tomorrowland Indy Speedway
Group 7B: Kali River Rapids
Group 9: Crystal Palace

Thanks!

Fran98765
08-07-2006, 10:54 PM
Can I add the UK Epcot one, since it would be great to get all those countries!

BernardandMissBianca
08-07-2006, 11:22 PM
I can add transportation too, but I'm not sure what other categories there are... (boats, busses and monorail are the only things that come to mind).

Strollers, shoes, parents shoulders, planes.....

I will not join... I will not join.......

08-07-2006, 11:32 PM
Please sign me up for Groups 2 and 9.

Group 2-Princesses:
I would like MULAN, the best princess ever *** she saves the BOY!

Group 9-Restaurants:
Would Blue Bayou work? I only go to DL, does WDW have one as well? If not, no hard feelings.


PS-I REALLY wanted to be involved in the Princess group and I had to search the web to verify that Mulan is a Princess, but I did it! LOL And if anyone else wants to join it, Pocahantas is the last one. At least, according to Disney.

Mulan is a Princess (http://disney.go.com/princess/html/main_iframe.html)

Okay, all updated.

Fran - I am not sure if fanofthemouse wants to take that last Epcot swap or wants to take Canada in a new group instead.... either way, one of you can be the first in the next group!

Penny - I deleted yours. no prob!

bubbasmom99
08-08-2006, 12:18 AM
SWAPPERS:

I will repost this in a fresh thread once signups are closed too, but I will need you to email me with your email address, mailing info, and phone #.

I will be prepping the labels ahead of time, and I would like to set everyone up on a email list to make it easier to send out notices (since the DisBoard PMs only allow 5 names at a time and this is going to be a rather large swap).

You can email your info to: disneyswaps@gmail.com

Thanks!!

We still have several openings so I'm going to leave this open for a couple of days. Then I'll post final #s to make.

YodasMom
08-08-2006, 12:30 AM
Thanks for adding the restaurant group! There are so many I would like to do or have elements for, but..........

I will take Group 9: Hollywood Brown Derby

Could you also add me to:

Group 4 b: Swiss Family Robinson's Tree House

YodasMom
08-08-2006, 12:34 AM
I can add transportation too, but I'm not sure what other categories there are... (boats, busses and monorail are the only things that come to mind).

Other modes of transportation would be the trams that transport people from the parking lots to the park or monorail entrances and the carriages that are pulled by horses on Main Street USA. There are so many kinds of boats from Steamboats to smaller boats.

Queenie
08-08-2006, 05:54 AM
Can I also take Exp Everest for 7b and Mickey for 1b if they're both available? Thanks! Can't wait - already started on Tinkerbell!

Mickster
08-08-2006, 09:26 AM
I wonder if you could do a "World Showcase" title like thing. I know I have some general pictures, not country specific (like of the boats or on benches).

bubbasmom99
08-08-2006, 09:52 AM
Okay, we're up to date again! I added transportation and Epcot attractions as categories.

I'm not certain we'll fill up another 11 people for the countries in the World Showcase, so we'll have to see...

fanofthemouse
08-08-2006, 10:08 AM
Thank god you told me what country was left....I could figure it out.

I'll do the UK for Epcot

please add me to:

Fran98765
08-08-2006, 10:26 AM
Ok, now I want in the restaurant group too. I'd like Liberty Tree Tavern. I also want to get into 4b with the Tea cups. I see I'm out of the Epcot countries, if others want a 2nd group, I will join in with Canada. If there isn't enough for a 2nd one, then just scratch that.

Also, do you have any links to old swaps or just examples/pictures of toppers and tags from this group? I'm new to this forum and I would love to see some past work to help me gather my ideas to submit. I have a lot of ideas for my choices already, but want to make sure that I send in something on the level that you all expect. :)

I'm very excited to participate in my first swap on this site and can't wait to see the results!

I had another idea, not sure if you want to add it, since there are so many categories already, but you have restaurants, which are all table service locations at this time, maybe a new restaurant category for counter service spots?

Fran - if you go to the top of the Swaps forum, there is a post that says "swap calendar" and inside is the link to past swaps with photos. (I haven't updated it lately).

I'm sure your work will be just fine! I only ask a few things of swappers -- 1) to be on time, 2) to communicate early and often, if there is a problem with getting the swap done, and 3) to do your best work -- not your *fanciest* work necessarily, just your best work. Work that you would be proud to put in your own book, or give away to friends, or enter in a contest. Straight cut edges, straight matting (unless it's meant to be off-center), no adhesive peeking out from underneath or running off the edge, etc.

If you have any questions, just ask! I've swapped with ladies here for over a year and they are the best!

Caitsmama
08-08-2006, 11:27 AM
I'm sorry, i goofed!! Can you please take me off Group 3B (Main Street) , i didn't realize that 3A and 3B were the same, and i don't need 2 of each! LOL Thank you so much!! Sorry about that.. that's what happens when i am too excited and don't read all the way thru!!

Test Track would be my first choice, but I don't remember if it is taken. If it is, just put me in and I will figure out another.

Thanks!

For the transportation theme Group 10, can't decide between the tram, double decker bus, ferryboat, (Main Street Transportation Co,) horse drawn carriage, etc..............

OK.........Could I have the Tram, please?

Do you think another restaurant group would fill? If so, I would sign-up.

New England Eeyore
08-08-2006, 12:24 PM
Could I also do Soarin for Group 11?

Thanks!

Mickster
08-08-2006, 12:34 PM
Oh, boy, am I a glutton for punishment... Can I have boats for transportation? Not the double decker ferry boat type, but the smaller ones that go between the MK and FW. Thanks! :sunny:

New England Eeyore
08-08-2006, 12:59 PM
I would join a second restaurant group if it opens with the Prime Time Cafe.

Joy - from your original description it sounds like there is a lot of leeway for the "tag" element - would it be safe to describe it as any decorative accent element? Like what about a paper piecing or an embellished or decorated die cut in a funky shape like an ice cream cone or something along those lines?

OK, I got so excited last night about particiapating in my first swap that I got the tags done and the toppers halfway done last night for group 8. So, I want to sign up for another group. Can you sign me up for Tinkerbell in group 1B please? I didn't think II could something that first but the DH and kids are out of town and I had the time.

08-08-2006, 11:44 PM
Ummmm.... yeah.... you people are SWAP CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Okay, I'm going to plug everyone into a spreadsheet for tracking, lol...

Here's what is still available:

CHARACTERS 1b - 1 space left
MK LANDS 3b - 1 space left
MK RIDES 4b - 1 space left
EPCOT COUNTRIES - 8 spaces left (may be combined with Epcot attractions)
STUDIOS - 2 spaces left
Animal Kingdom 7b - 3 spaces left
Cruise - 1 space left
Restaurants 9b - 6 spaces left
Transportation - 3 spaces left
Epcot Attractions - 3 spaces left (or may combine with Epcot countries)

Whew! Okay, let's try to fill up what's left.

I'd rather not open up anymore groups unless we can get 6 interested people in a grouping. Assuming there are some people who haven't seen this thread yet, I'll leave the signups open for a few more days.

Remember to email me your info to: disneyswaps@gmail.com

Thanks!! I'm so glad so many people decided to come out and play!

I would join a second restaurant group if it opens with the Prime Time Cafe.

Joy - from your original description it sounds like there is a lot of leeway for the "tag" element - would it be safe to describe it as any decorative accent element? Like what about a paper piecing or an embellished or decorated die cut in a funky shape like an ice cream cone or something along those lines?

YOU GOT IT! I love creativity! Decorative accent element is a much better description but I liked the onomatopoeia (sp?) of Toppers'n'Tags.

For the transportation theme Group 10, can't decide between the tram, double decker bus, ferryboat, (Main Street Transportation Co,) horse drawn carriage, etc..............

OK.........Could I have the Tram, please?

Do you think another restaurant group would fill? If so, I would sign-up.

I opened a 2nd restaurant group -- now pick a restaurant :)

Urgh I spent today making 8 Tinkerbell paper piecings! It was sooooo dull as each one was made up of 10 pieces, the smallest only a few millimetres square and most were super intricate. At least she's done! Not sure if she's big enough to be an embellishment by herself, 3" tall and about 1.5" wide including wings.

Depends what size album you are in I guess Although since I can not paper piece for my life, I would covet (sp?) a tink paper piece:) Just my random thoughts so you know (even if I am not in the group) I appreciate you :rotfl:

bubbasmom99
08-09-2006, 11:56 PM
Okay -- we've got a handful of slots left but here is where we are so far... as I was going through, I noticed a few of you are signed up for more than one group in a category, so please make sure you intended to do so.

Here is a matrix of everyone's groups (http://www.tastytidbits.net/topperswap.pdf)

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure you have considered the time it will take to complete this swap. I am a bit nervous with such a large group and with so many people signed up for multiple groups. Please be considerate of fellow swappers and follow through on your commitments.

If you have not posted that you have gone postal by the deadline, I will swap without you and return your items back to you. Make sure you email me your info and I will be emailing my mailing address shortly.

Thanks!

THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who is participating! This is going to be an awesome swap and I am looking forward to seeing everyone's work!

Hi Joy............I was going to post an update this weekend anyway so I'll do it now. I'm coming along well with this swap and I'm still in it. But, I won't be doing anymore until after the 18th. I will be mailing by or before October 25. You will get it before the due date.

Thanks so much for all your work!

I'm still plugging away. I have two groups completely done and a third just waiting for something I ordered online. I plan to do a big chunk of work this long weekend. My LSS just got a Cricut that we can use so I'm planning on checking that out next week.

Hi! Just checking in! I have one other swap to finish, and then I will be finishing up this one. I have some of my swap done, but not all. I am planning to mail between the 20th and 25th of October, so it should get there in time. Have a great weekend! :thumbsup2

Okay all, I'm going to start on these tomorrow. I have a question about the tags. What size is everyone making? I've made all different sizes for my other swaps, but nothing especially for an 8x8 layout. I don't want to over power the page and leave no room for pictures and journalling and I don't don't want to go too small and disappoint everyone.

Thanks for the feedback.

I would say that the 3 of mine were all different sizes, but about 2 x 3. Maybe a little bigger for one and a little smaller for the other.

Hi all, just a check in as I've been away on vacation - I am still here and I am still working. I also just wanted to post a little warning type thing. Unfortunately the jetlag off of flying home has made me very ill this week, I've basically been in bed since Monday! As a result I'm majorly behind with two exams that are due in to university on Oct 31st (I go to a "by-mail" uni so we do exams at home and send them back by post to be graded.) I hope you can appreciate that if push comes to shove I HAVE to put my exams before finishing up my items, as a result there is a slight chance that I might be late, although I really can't see it being more than a week past the due date. If I was in the States I'd be fine but with it taking ages sometimes for mail to go from here to you guys I could end up going over. I am REALLY sorry about this and I feel so so so bad about possibly holding up some groups. I hope it won't come to that as I've never missed a due date before and am very keen to keep it that way! With what has been said recently about people causing delays or disppearing I just wanted to let everyone (not just the hostess) know what was happening and that I am NOT flaking out on any group.

I am going to post this same message on three threads, but I don't want to type it over and over (gotta love copy and paste).

Anyway, I am admittedly running much later than I like to do (never want to make a hostess worry - been there, done that, no fun). I do apologize. I was sick for about two weeks and then went on vacation. BUT I am putting off my vacation album, which is really hard ;), and finishing swaps this weekend. As we speak, almost everything is cut and prepped for assembly on Saturday. I plan to mail priority on Monday, but I will post again for certain when I do.

Again, I am so sorry if I made you worry. I was too sick to post, and you all know that is bad!

Hi all, I am sat here cutting bits out for group 7! Would anyone in group 1 mind if I switched from Jiminy Cricket to eeyore? The stuff I've been working on for Jiminy is just looking terrible! I've got ideas for eeyore ready to go if everyone;s happy with that.

On to Fantasmic!, Boneyard, 1900 Park Fare, It's Tough to be a Bug,
Automobile, Liberty Square, and Journey into Imagination. What on earth was I thinking when I signed up? No sleeping this weekend. ;)

10-20-2006, 05:04 PM
I wish when I signed up for swaps a button would come up saying "Are you SURE you want to do that?" It's so much easier signing up for them than completing them!!!!!!!!"

Queenie
10-20-2006, 05:27 PM
Ok Eeyore it is for group 1. Mickey and Everest are done, Ellen's Energy Adventure, Muppets and Tink are half done. Sounds worse than it is as I'm basically 50% to completetion. Hoping to have a load more done by the end of the weekend.

Well I haven't quit got finished. Why isit that work always gets crazy right before you leave for vacation. LOL I'll finish up when I get home next weekend and they will be out either Monday or Tuesday. I'll send priority so it won't take too long. Have a great week everyone and I'll check back in once I get back.

AlexWyattMommy
10-22-2006, 01:30 PM
I'm not done :guilty:

I can't count. I've only made 6 for each group, not 8. I don't have enough of the embellishments and paper to make the othe two look exactly like the first six in each group. So I apologize ahead of time to the person who doesn't get the one that will be pictured in the finished swap. I promise to not skimp on it.

Okay, off I go to hit my head on the wall a few times and then make a cup of tea and start all over again.

StitchIsOurHero
10-22-2006, 08:48 PM
Oh, AWM, I'm sorry! That sounds like something that would happen to me! :)

I got to work a lot on this one today. I have all of my tags done, and the toppers done for 4 groups. I am hoping to finish the other 3 sets of toppers tomorrow, and then mail them on Tuesday. I'll post to confirm that they are in the mail!

Have a great Monday everyone! :sunny:

10-22-2006, 10:01 PM
Well, I made too many for the Land group before noticing that there are only 7 in that group. Oh, well........

I have all the toppers done for my 7 groups and the tags. etc. done for 4 of the groups. I'm hoping to get more done yet tonight. I will definately have to mail by Tuesday. Need to get some repacking done for my trip.

10-23-2006, 10:46 AM
I'm so aggravated.

I went to my LSS to use their Cricut for two of my toppers. One (George Font) came out just fine. Jasmine, on the other hand, stinks! Every time I try to get the letters out of the paper they rip! Plus I chose a size that looks all wrong now that I get it home. I don't want to go back there because I spent so much time there doing it and I don't want to tell them I messed up! I kind of knew when I was there that it wasn't working so well, but I wasn't quick thinking enough to try a different font. So now it's off to AC Moore to find some letter stickers that will match the picture I had in my mind.

Argh. At least it's my last group.

AlexWyattMommy
10-23-2006, 06:41 PM
Okay, I'm really done this time. Just made the box and will be packing them up tonight to mail out tomorrow.
FYI for the Epcot countries group 5a, I made a paperbag and Epcot tag extra. The space on the front of the bag was intentionally left plain so you could put in the year of your trip. I was going to do it, than realized that not everyone has gone in the same year. My first time doing this element, hope you like them. :sunny:

Hi everyone!

Looks like we're moving right along...

I still haven't heard from fanofthemouse. Unless she posts that she's gone postal by the 1st, I won't be waiting for her stuff... I thought about angel'ing the spots but we have so many participants that I hesitate to add more to the mix... unless someone who is already in it wants to tack on an extra set...
