DIS Veteran
Apr 12, 2005
Information for the Holidays & Seasons Swap (Groups in the next post)
Sign ups will open on Oct 12th. Due date January 19th (gets us through the holiday).

Newbies are welcome. If you haven't swapped with us on this board before, then I will limit you to 2 groups.

There are 5 different types of groups listed:
-- The first set is for 2-inch embellished letters to spell a holiday or season
-- The second set is for 4-inch altered letters
-- The third set is for mini kits: title, mat, box and one element
-- The fourth set is for single elements
-- The fifth set is for pages

Groups are listed in the next post.

I will pm you with a reminder if you forget to check in. After 48 hours with no response I will request angels for your spots. If you are going on vacation or will be out of town, please check in early. Please do not sign up for more than you can handle. If you need an angel, please ask for one as soon as possible.

After sign-ups, 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).

For Groups 1-7: Make a title piece, one mat, one journal box and one other element. Please refer to the list below for element definitions.

For Groups R-Z: Choose one element from the list below. I’d like to avoid duplicate elements within the group, except for paper piecings. Please state your element choice as soon as possible. If you choose paper piecing, please state what you are making as soon as you know. I am open to different title pieces too -- example, Summer Fun, and Make a Splash wouldn’t be duplicates for summer titles.

Element list:
Title = standard 8x2 topper (other sizes are okay), welded and shadowed letters, letters on squares, circles,mini tags or other shapes, a large title tag, title on a box, borders, altered CD.
1 paper piecing (not a single layer diecut)
2 photomats for a 4x6 photo, 2 layers, smallest layer 4 ¼ x 6 ¼, embellished
2 journal boxes, total of 3 layers, minimum writing space 3x3, embellished
2 tags (or 1 large tag—greater than 2x3), 2 layers, something in the hole and embellished
1 file folder or matchbook (2 if mini) - -embellished
2 slide mounts -- embellished
Altered CD
3 altered paper clips
1 shaker box
1 library pocket and tag. Tag must be 2 layers with something in the hole, pocket must be embellished
1 license plate
3 shapes(squares, circles, stars, flowers etc or mini paper piecings) 2 layers, embellished
4 inchies
Signage/Bookmark: 1PP 2x6, double matted and embellished
Song/Lyric/Poem: 1PP, 3 layers in total and embellished. Min size 3x4, shapes are welcome
Altered letter: matted at least 4 inches (NOT A CHOICE FOR MINI KIT)
1 Border - 12x2 inches and able to be cut down to 11 inches in length - 2 layers and embellished.

You can mix and match -- 1 tag and box, 1 photomat and box, 1 tag and 2 squares or shapes, etc.

******Please let me know if you have an idea not listed! We are open to new things.

Suggestions for embellishments include:
Die cuts, stickers, stickles, flock, ink, chalk, brads, charms, flowers, eyelets, ribbon/fiber, sewing, tearing, embossing, stamping, 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).

Groups P & Q Make a 4 inch letter, matted, and embellished at least once. You may use patterned and solid colored paper. Please be creative. You are making the first letter of the word only. An example is: You are in Group O and chose Halloween. You will make a 4 inch H and when everyone gets it back they can add "alloween" to it anyway they want or just use the "H" on their page to represent Halloween.

Groups A-O Make your letter(s) 2 inches, matted, and embellished at least once. Your top letter is cut at 2 inches and the mat can be the shadow. You may use patterned and solid colored paper. Please be creative and use colors that represent your group selection.

Groups 8-10: Choose one of the sketches provided. No duplicates per group. See this thread for instructions.

Packaging: Place your completed elements in a Ziploc bag THAT FITS YOUR ELEMENTS (the bag MUST close). PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE use a bag that closes. Bags that do not close make the sorting harder than it needs to be. One piece falls out of a bag and then I have to check every bag to see where it goes. Label your bag with your DISname, name and group letter. Do not address your items to a particular swapper. (That makes it harder for me to sort!) Your label should look like this

Susan Billings
Group A

For Groups 1-7 and R-Z: 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.

For Groups P-Q: Please put each letter in a bag that will fit your letter and then put all those baggies for that group into a QUART or GALLON size bag.

For Groups A-O: Bag each set! Example: You are in Group H and are making an T and an I. Put the T and I together in 6 different bags. THen put the 6 bags into a quart size bag. (Like bagging elements)

For Groups 8-10: Put the 4 pages for one group into a 2 or 2.5 gallon bag. Label the back of the pages and the bag.

* You may send to me, by any method you choose unless you are mailing after January 3 [note this is before the mail by date]. Then, you must mail Priority WITH Delivery Confirmation.
* I prefer to send to you using flat rate boxes/envelopes. Please include enough postage in your package for return shipping. The rates are: Envelope or Small Box (9”x6”x2”) - $4.95, Medium/Standard box – $10.70, Large - $14.50.
* If you want your items shipped to you with DC, please include the $.70, and a filled out slip. I will not mail the items back with delivery confirmation unless you include the $.70 and the filled out DC form.
* Please include a label (can be the priority label completed with your info or a small address label) for me to use to return your items to you.
* DO NOT include clik-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.

I hope you have lots of fun in this swap.

    I'm definately in for several of the 2'' letter groups, and maybe a couple of the single element groups. Probably will not be joining the mini page kit or sketch groups.


    Mar 3, 2009
    I'm in for sure with the mini kits & a few 2" groups. I might not be able to resist the 4" or the single elements, but those would be 2nd on my list.

    I think I will be sitting this one out. I don't want to over-commit myself. I could angel for you if someone gets in a bind, though. :goodvibes Don't worry, the Zhu Zhu's have been given a stern lecture and they are sorry for the bad behavior. I don't think it will happen again.

    I would be interested in 2" letters, 4" letters, and the single elements - just the christmas and halloween ones. I would definitely join the Disney Holiday group - I know its a lot of groups already, but is there a way to make one Disney Halloween and one Disney Christmas group for the Single Element? If not, I would still join the one. Thanks!

    I think so, how about SANTA or TREE, they could even be put in the same group since they are smaller words.

    I'd be up for this one, but I'd like to see a vintage Christmas group if at all possible. I really like the vintage looks lately. I know there are a BUNCH of groups that I want to join.

    What kind of group? 2", kits, or single element?

    I hope to be in but I have to wait and see. I may be chosen as a juror on a long running case and that will take up alot of time.
    Im mostly interested in Christmas and Halloween and will see what groups end up holding.


    Mar 31, 2010
    For the vintage, I'd be interested in letters, single elements or mini kits. Whatever you would have room to add.
