Welcome to the 2013 Kids & Family Swap!

Sign ups will open at 8am CST, Wednesday, March 27, and close at 8 pm CST on Tuesday, April 2.

Due date is Jun 17, 2013.


Newbies are welcome. If this is your first swap on this board, I will limit you to 3 groups.

After sign ups, please pm me your name, mailing address, email address and phone number (I will only use these in an emergency). I will send the same information to you.

Dates to remember:

Apr 3 -- verify groups and pm info
Apr 24-- 1st check in
May 20 -- 3rd check in -- detailed progress report and last call for angels
Jun 6 -- mail by date
Jun 10 -- due date


If you forget a check in, I will pm you a reminder. After 48 hours with no response, I will request an angel for your spots. If you will be on vacation or out of town, please check in early.

Packing & Mailing instructions:

Please use a ziploc bag for each person in your group. For the 2 letter groups, use jewelry or snack size bags. For the single element groups, use a bag large enough to seal your piece inside. Label each of these bags as show below. Place the bags for each group into a larger, labeled bag -- quart size for the letters and gallon (or larger) for the mini kits.

Label bags like this:

Group A

Please include return postage & a mailing address label.

You may send to me by any method you choose before June 6. After this date, you must send by priority mail with delivery confirmation. I will return your goodies using flat rate boxes/envelopes from the USPS. The rates for these are: envelopes $5.15, small box $,5.35 med/standard box $11.35, large box $15.45. Please do not include the click-it/ship-it postage as it is only good on the day it is printed and from the location it is printed.

If you have any questions on mailing or bagging and tagging, please ask. Your packages will be returned much quicker if everyone follows these guidelines.

Requirements:

There are 2 different types of groups in this swap. Please see below for the requirements for each.

2 letters -- at sign up, select one or more letters per group.

Please use all capital letters.
Letters should measure 2 with a mat or shadow behind it.
Letters should be embellished at least once to fit the theme of the word. Please follow the color guidelines for each group.

Mini Kits (title + 2) please specify title at sign up if possible. Make one title and any 2 elements from the list below. You may make different items for each swapper in your group. If you do so, please include the designated swapper on each label.


Element list:
*2 photo mats 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 taggreater than 2x3), 2 layers, something in the hole and embellished
*1 paper piecing (not a single layer diecut, at least 4 inches or best judgment)
*1 file folder or matchbook (2 if smaller than 3x4) - -embellished
*2 slide mounts -- embellished
*2 Frames - needs to fit 4x6 photo please - Sizzix okay even though smaller
*Altered CD
*3 altered paper clips

*2 altered pins
*1 Banner: at least 8 long with ribbon or string, embellished
*1 Border: 12" long with 2 layers

**You may mix elements up too. Example: You could choose to do 1 photo mat and 1 journal box as 1 element choice. Another example would be one tag and one photo mat as an element choice. If you have any questions, please let me know!



***Please let me know if you have an idea not listed***

Suggestions for embellishment 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).*


Finally have fun! Scrapping and swapping should be an escape from all the stress and pressure we have to deal with on a daily basis, not an addition to it. Please dont sign up for more than you can handle, and if questions or problems arise, let me know as soon as possible. We will work together to find a solution.
