Welcome to the Holiday/Disney Holiday Swap!!:santa:

Below are the general requirements for this swap. Hope you can join us!!
*Signups open Friday, June 14th at 9 am EST-close Friday evening, June 21st.

There are 3 different types of groups listed:
-The first is for 2'' Altered letters-You will pick a letter or letters, and it will combine to spell out the entire word. Make your specified letters 2 inches tall with a shadow/mat behind it. Embellish your letters at least once to go along with the theme of the title. You may use patterned paper or solid colored cardstock. Please be creative and use colors that represent your group selection.

-The second is for elements-you pick an element from the list below and make one for each member of your group. These are to be embellished two ways per the guidelines listed below.

-The third is for 2-page layouts. They will need to be made using a sketch. Please post your sketch used with a picture of it and your page title. It can be any sketch as long as it meets the requirements. Each page layout should include a title, room for at least two 4x6 photos, an embellishment or two, and a spot to journal...can be a box, shape or paper strips. *So that each swapper can customize the pages to fit their pictures, PLEASE DO NOT GLUE DOWN YOUR PHOTOMATS. Good websites for sketches: www.4x6photosketchblog.blogspot.com www.sketchesbysuzy.com www.sketchsupport.com www.sketchsavvy.blogspot.com

Guidelines:
1. Due date is September 20th. That is when I need to receive your package. Mail by date is September 13th, to make sure your package arrives to me on time. Please pm me your name, DIS name, mailing address, email address and phone number when you sign up. I will only use these in an emergency.
2. You pick your group and the element you will doing in that group. Please use the element list below. If you are doing altered letters, please let me know your first and second choices for letters.
3. Required: Please see the element list for the number of elements to make for EACH swapper.
4. Packaging: Place your completed elements in a Ziploc bag THAT FITS YOUR ELEMENTS or page with your DISname, name and group letter/number. Do not address your items to a particular swapper, that makes it harder for me to sort! Your label should look like this:
DisneyBarlans Anne Barlan Group A
-Altered Letter Groups-Please place all of your letters in a jewelry or snack size bag, then they all go into a QUART size bag. *Please make sure all of your baggies fit comfortably inside of a quirt size baggie. Sandwich bags are too big for individual letters.*
-Element Groups-Take all of your baggies for a group and place them in GALLON size or larger bag, and label with the same. Please use the gallon bag or larger-your items may fit in a smaller bag, but the items you receive back might not.
-Page Groups-Label your pages with your name & Disname on the back, then place all of your completed pages in a 2-2 1/2 gallon ziplock baggie labeled with the group name/your name.
5. Mailing: You may send to me, by any method you choose unless you are mailing after COLOR="Red" Sept. 13th./COLOR Then, you must mail Priority and send me the Delivery Confirmation #. I prefer to send back to you using flat rate boxes/envelopes. Please include enough postage in your package for return shipping. DO NOT include click-it/ship-it postage-I will not be able to use it since it is only good on the day it was printed, and from the location it was printed. Here are the current rates: New postage rates as of 1/27/13 priority mail flat rate (DC is included in the price): Regular envelope: $5.60, Legal size envelope: $5.75, Padded envelope: $5.95, Small box: $5.80, Medium box: $12.35, Large box: $16.85 -Please 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 errors.
6. If you haven't swapped on these board before, I'm limiting you to 3 groups only. 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 ASAP so we can make arrangements for an angel or other help if needed.
7. Please be mindful of your time management. Do NOT sign up for more than you can handle.
8. Most importantly HAVE FUN!! I know we all get worried about our stuff sometimes. I know everything will be GREAT! Just make something you would be proud to have in your own albums, and everyone will love it!!

I said I wasn't going to join more swaps but I am going to WDW in October for the Halloween party so how can I resist this one??

I may even try a 2 page layout for this swap.pirate:


Has anyone swapped Single page layouts on this forum??? Single pages are quite popular now-I do a lot of them....might be something to consider since it is a holiday theme to have more of a focal picture? Anyway, just a thought.

:woohoo: Yay!! Yes you NEED to join this swap Jennifer!;)

We can ask everyone whether they would rather do single or double pages....it's been my experience that most of us take so many pics that at least 2 pages are necessary.:rotfl:

    Oh that sounds wonderful! I will be tempted to join several sketch groups if that is the case. I am really getting excited about this swap--thinking of some ideas I want to try and scouting out supplies.:rolleyes1
