Laura, I just copied a line from another thread where you made the comment, "Wish that's what I had said on my list." Maybe now that we have answered our own questionnaire, have received our swap person's responses, & starting thinking of what to buy, etc., we might want to add or subtract from our original info. We might even want to ask a "generic" question of everyone in the swap in hopes that the person we have will answer :). I hope this makes sense (it's late).

Any additions, changes, etc.?

I will post another questionaire for next month???

I don't want to be forwarding a million e-mails around all the time - how about 1X a month!

Or start a thread called SS_I wish I had...
and just post and leave it up to the SS to check it...

Zacctly Laura---

I think we should just make thepost me here that way I don't have to e-mail a million times to everyone (I'll end up giving away the secret part by accident lol)

I will alert everyone that we are going to do that though!

Laura, that is exactly what I mean! You wrote on another subject that you wished you had said something on your wish list, so I thought it was a good idea to start this subject.



Patty, I wasn't suggesting you do anything like emailing us either as a group or as an individuals. I am hoping participants will make comments on the bb for all to see. I got the impression from your reply on this subject that maybe you thought I meant you should do the emails. I think it is fine to use the bb for our information.

I finally thought of something!!!!:D I'd like one of those cute little trays that you can dump your glitter/beads/sand etc in so you don't make a huge mess. :D

I guess that would mean I would need those cute little fine beads too eh?:D maggie

Judy - oh no prob - that was just the first idea that came to mind!

Great Idea Nicurn - i would like one of those too - I bet you could use it for embossing powder - I always just use a sheet of paper - then I always end up with some on the fllor or desk! lol

:D

my dh would like me to have one of those trays, too, and I'm too cheap to buy one...but I now have embossing powder (I started playing with it two days ago for the first time!) alllllll over the house, me, the furniture...he's not happy!

He tried to get me to buy one the other day and I told him no way!! I could get two more jars of powder for what that little tray costs!:jester:

Laura I saw those templates (from Scrapbook Magic (http://www.scrapbookmagic.net/miva/merchant.mv?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=SM&Category_Code=AD)) on an episode of DIY Scrapbooking. http://www.diynet.com/DIY/article/0,2058,10134,00.html They look really cool.

the chalk templates from scrapbook magic rock! I bought three of them at the GASC convention in Va. I love them! (of course, I also have random templates from michael's and walmart that you can chalk on as well, they are a little less sturdy, but I haven't had a problem with them. ) maggie

Ok, ... what is the difference between chalp alpha templates & regular alpha templates? Thank you!

nicurn
06-27-2003, 09:01 PM
I don't think there really is a difference. The only thing I really noticed about the templates that I bought at the GASC was that they are stiffer than the collection I have from walmart and Michael's for example. I think this makes it easier to chalk without the template coming up and making you make a mess out of your letters, animals, etc. (I could be totally wrong on that by the way....:D ) Maggie

(also since they are a bit sturdier, they are less likely to rip, which I have done with my cute little letter one from walmart)

I saw them being used on DIY and they look really kewl!! So I just thought I would wish upon a star for them.

Maybe I'll ask tomorrow when I go cropping if I don't foret.

nicurn - if you don't mind my asking how much did you pay for your templates and which chalk templates did you get?

I want to hear all about these.

Laura

RRBB
06-27-2003, 10:02 PM
I can't speak for the durability of the templates, but the set that crazyforpooh seems to be interested in (at least looking at the picture) is a layered/themed template. The way they showed it on DIY Scrapbooking, you first chalk a chunky letter. Then you lay the themed template down, erase and rechalk (or use markers, etc.) the top layer. The results really are neat. (See link to the DIY article above.)

nicurn

I bought them from their booth and they were 5.50 each since I bought 3. I bought zoo animals because they were really cute, the one with strawberries and other flowers,(country charm) and dazzling doodles #3030 sand and sea for any beach layouts I might do. :D I bought the "decorating chalks, for a pastel touch" there are 24 squares in the box. It was $10.99. You can also get smaller boxes with 9 colours for 5.99 or something to that effect. You might want to look for the chalks by EK success though, they come with a chalk erasure and are circular. maggie

I just looked at both websites mentioned above & cannot tell the difference :). I asked at one of my LSS today & the owner was not familiar with a separate alphabet template just for chalk.

nicurn
06-28-2003, 07:25 PM
I don't think they are specifically for chalk, they just are used with chalk by the chalk lady on the web site. She does say you can use them with markers, etc. I think that they may be a little more sturdy than say the templates at walmart. The sturdier they are, the easier it is to chalk on them. maggie

Laura

pattyT
07-02-2003, 08:07 PM
I use them -
I wallpaper most of my pages -
meaning htat I take a peice of 12X12 cut it to fit between the plastic end pieces - then use the paper to make my layout then I adhere the whole page to the CM page
here are a few examples:

http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/pg.asp?cmd=display&layout_id=121195

http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/pg.asp?cmd=display&layout_id=117189

http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/pg.asp?cmd=display&layout_id=123155

if you look close you can see that they are in cm albums!

oh if you don't wallpaper then you can just make a title - matt and put the eyelet or brad through just the title then adhere to the page - I have examples of that somewhere if I can find them!

were being thread thiefs here! :) sorry guys!

AIRHEAD ALERT!

I'm sorry Laura I thought you meant Brads won't work - I bet the templates would only work if you wallpaper way to the edges of a page - I'll have to measure and see - I have seen websites with instruction on how to make your own templates (to lazy rather buy em) maybe I'll have to do that!

Maggie-
COlorblocking Templates - heres a link- it's easier than explaining I think - The template allows you to cut the blocks of color or photos precisely!

those are made from the same 'template' you can flip and flop for a bunch of layouts!

PattyT,

I love the look of the Deluxe Cut Colorblocking Templates - but I'm too cheap to buy them :rolleyes: (mostly because I would want them all in the 12x12 size - at $6 a piece - I could buy lots of other supplies) I'm also disappointed that I didn't know that they were on sale a couple weeks ago at AC Moore. Oh well.

One of my LSS was having a one year anniversary sale yesterday :). I bought the tools & mat to start using eyelets. However, the selection of eyelets was limited (compared to the other LSS). I bought a bag of green holly leaves & a bag of assorted christmas ones - stockings, snowflakes & angels. I also got a packet of "white" eyelets that are actually light gray (good for my future military/Americana pages & books.

So, ... can I add eyelets to my "wish that's what I had said on my list?" If possible, of course :) ... If not, that's ok, too ... I just like being part of this swap anyway!!

pattyT
07-06-2003, 09:35 PM
What kind of setter did you get?
I have been debating buying one of those adjustable types cuz there are different size eyelets - I use primarily 1/8ths now but I like and even have some of the 3/16ths!
If you do have that how do you like it?

I think you will have fun with it -
there are tons of eyelet stores online with CHEAP shipping! Let me know if you need info Judith's SS :)

And since I just got a Quickutz....I would love some fish dies or other interesting dies. I have the stars, hearts, square and flowers.......They are a little pricy though, around $9 each.

Wish I could read your mind -- then I would know the perfect things to buy for you! I am trying to start buying for your August package, but I keep saying to myself "self, what if she doesn't like this?". So if there are any last minute requests out there (I know I can't direct this to any one person in particular, but...) -- maybe everyone could post a "Top 3" list of things that they would really like & hopefully my SS will respond! Talk to you all soon.

I figure if there is something I buy & send that my person does not care for, then they can send it back to me in October :)!

When I bought my July package, I also bought "stuff" for the August package. Now I'm getting antsy to send it (the August stuff) & tomorrow is only JULY 15 :)! however, keep those ideas coming!

Hhhhmmmm ... top three wishes ...

1. pink Mosaic book (Wish in the Wind, I think);
2. white star eyelets - as in American flag stars;
3. I don't know :)! Surprise Me!!

1. Love all the making memory metal plaques, sayings etc. (already have the father and brother sayings)
2. Making Memories is coming out with some new stuff which I'm sure I'd like.
