Talking PROGRESS: Disney Surprise Swap - ALL MAILED - with PHOTOS

Mail Date: June 20, Due Date: June 27

This is a Disney Surprise Swap that includes some specific themes, as well as general Disney ones. If you select a group in the themed ones, please make items that could clearly be used within that theme – for example, if you select AK theme, you could make anything related an animal, the park in general, or a ride/show/land, but not a paper piecing of Mickey in his traditional red shorts because in AK he meets in his safari/camp gear. The same goes for the season groups, please make things that are specific to either the holiday or the season.

Remember – this is a surprise swap – you don’t have to tell me the element. You may use up your stash for this swap. You may make as many different items you wish but only as many as four of each item. However, each element should be embellished to sufficient quality.

For ideas or to see the most recent Surprise Swap, see here - http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2008627. The Surprise Swap before that is here - http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1832962.

1. Pick the spots in the groups you would like. For each spot you choose, you are required to make 1 element from the list below for each person in your group. There may be different numbers of people per group so please be sure to double check your amounts once sign-ups are closed.

2. PM me with your DIS name, name, mailing address, email address, and phone numbers. Email and phone numbers will only be used to follow up if I have not heard from you.

3. If you are unable to complete your groups, please ask for an angel as soon as possible. I will be requiring the following check-in dates.

April 17, got your info
May 7
June 4
Mail by June 20
I have
I sent back
you have

If I have not heard from you within 2 days of the check-in date, a pm/e-mail will be sent. If I still do not hear from you within 48 hours of that, I will ask for an angel. If you will be away during a check-in, please let me know. Please post your status on the Progress thread, which will be posted after sign-ups are closed.

4. Packing Instructions: use a Ziploc bag (snack/sandwich/quart) for each person and put everything for that person into their bag. Please label each individual bag with your DIS name, real name and group (see below) – do not put the recipient’s name on the bag/label. Enclose these individual bags into a larger (no smaller than gallon size) Ziploc bag. Please use a gallon size bag for this even if your items may fit in a quart sized bag. Others’ items may not fit in the quart size. Label the gallon sized bag with your name, DIS name, and group. What you send to me MUST fit and lock into the baggie. No pieces should be sticking out of the baggie – if it does, please use a larger Ziploc bag for those elements.

The labels for each bag should look like this:

Mischief_Managed
Kristy Siegel
Group B1

5. Mailing Instructions: mail in a priority envelope or box and include $4.95 (envelope) or $10.35 (box) for return postage (stamps, cash, check) to return your items. If you want your items shipped back to you with delivery confirmation, please include the $.70, and you must include a filled out DC slip. Please do not send metered or click-it/ship-it postage – some hostesses have had issues with these. You must include a return address label -- either a USPS priority mail label that you have addressed, or the little ones you would put on envelope. (This cuts down on writing/mailing errors.)

6. Check the progress thread for your status - it will be updated with ship info and received info.

7. PM me if you have problems and need to drop out or if an emergency happens (we all know things happen beyond our control sometimes), let me know so we can make arrangements for an angel or other help if needed.

8. HAVE FUN!! And don’t forget to not post pictures, it’s a secret!

Here are the element choices - you will make one element for each group member, although some elements require more items to be considered as one element:
Element list (borrowed from Hopemax)

Note: Please no handwritten items. Embellished can mean: stickers, stickles, flock, ink, chalk, brads, Primas, eyelets, ribbon/fiber, stickles, sewing, tearing, clipart, additional layers of paper beyond double mats (if it would look weird trying to fit in another embellishment). Specialty paper, such as embossed, glitter, Bling will be considered an embellishment. If you can think of no way to embellish your item, without it looking weird, you can provide an embellishment not attached to your item, such as a Cricut icon cutout, or a set of 4 brads/eyelets, a yard of ribbon/fiber, etc.

One Element Is One from this list:

* Topper/Title/Signage: Double Matted, Embellished. Standard size in the past has been 2 x 8, so it would fit in books of different sizes. However, in the hostess pow wow, it was decided that we actually would like longer toppers to fit the width of a 12x12 page. I wouldn’t go any larger than 11” so if someone has an 8.5 x 11” book, the topper can be used as a border. You could also make individual letters, but they must be shadowed and a minimum of 1.5” tall. If you want to do something that is 3 x7, or 4x4, or running in two directions, or paper pieced that is fine too. Paper pieced titles don’t have to be double-matted.

* Library Pocket w/ Tag: Embellished. Tag should be double matted, with ribbon or eyelet.

* Layered Die-Cuts: To accommodate the Cricut cutouts that aren’t really detailed enough to be considered a paper piecing. Make THREE 3” pieces. If they are smaller than 3” make more; use your best judgement. Try to shadow and embellish if able.

* Paper Piecing: 4” minimum in one direction (H or W).

* License Plate: Double matted, embellished. Please be creative

* Shaker box: Be Creative

* Lyric/Quote/Poem: Double Matted + layer with poem/lyric/quote. Top Layer should be 3x3 minimum. Embellished.

* Pair of Borders: 12” in length. Double Matted. Embellished.

* Altered Letter: Double matted, 4” minimum height. Embellished.

* Matchbook: Embellished, Be Creative, don't forget to include a blank page inside

* ATC (Artist Trading Card): 2.5" x 3.5", heavy/thick cardstock. Embellished 3 ways.

* Jar of Whimsy Baggie: Snack size bag filled (stuffed) with fibers, ribbon, brads, eyelets, buttons, chipboard, stickers, small cardstock pieces, etc. to match your topic.

Or TWO from this list (you can mix & match)
* Frame: Double matted, embellished. Should be large enough to hold a 4x6 photo. Sizzix frames are okay even though they are smaller.

* Photomat/Large Box: Double matted, embellished. Should be large enough to hold a 4x6 photo, or may be used as a journaling box

* Two Small Boxes: To be used as either small photo mats or journaling spaces. Consider sizes such as for holding a 3x4, 4x4, 3x4 photo. Double matted, embellished. If you are thinking journal boxes, other shapes work well too.

* Tag: Double matted, embellished. Approximately 2x3 or 3x4 size, but does not have to be a rectangle. Circles, ovals, diamonds, squares work well too.

* Two Embellished Shapes/Squares: Double matted, embellished

* Slide Mount: Embellished

* Mini File Folder: Embellished

NOTE: Purchased items, such as Jolee's, cannot be used as an element choice for the groups - only for the specific group (L) - because some swappers prefer to not receive purchased items in exchange for items they created/crafted. So if you have some purchased items that you would like to include in this swap, please sign up for Group L.

Please check your groups, and if I don't have your contact information, please send it to me.

Just a couple of notes:
*Chiefdragon, I moved you up into A1 (giving up my spot).
*Group L has 5 - if you are in that group and don't want/have 5 to send, please let me know, I can drop out of the group.
* Michi Belle, I had to cancel Group M because no one else signed up (sorry) - I'll make Pirate Blake something special for his new scrapbook.

Thanks everyone for joining. I can't wait to see what you all make. If you have any questions, please ask. Have fun!

Sorry about my kiddos not signing up. They aren't home this week - with the ILs for Spring Break. They don't want to think about scrapping right now. Not sure how that happened. I certainly didn't raise them that way.

As soon as I said "dark side", they jumped ugly. They are aspiring Clone Troopers.

My groups look good! Quick question to clarify - for the park specific groups, the piece can be anything related to that park, right? For example - in DHS, something with The Great Movie Ride. Just want to make sure I'm heading in the right direction.

No worries. They must be having a blast right now and don't want to think about home. Just like the Dark Side, they'll come around to swapping/scrapping one day... everyone turns to the Dark Side eventually. (Plus the guys are hotter on the Dark Side! )
