    Welcome to the resort swap! :banana:

    There are MANY group possibilities listed. I do not expect all of them to fill. So when signing up, keep in mind alternatives you would like to do, in case your group is canceled. If a regular element group has 2 people in it, and both are willing to continue, I will keep it. For letter groups, I may change from 2 letters pp to 3 pp to fill a group. So be prepared.

    Groups will be listed in post #2, this post is for the instructions.


    1. Dates to remember:
    Due date is October 4, 2012. That is when I need to receive your package. Mail by date is September 29th, to make sure your package arrives to me on time.

    1st Check-in: Monday, August 20th
    2nd Check-in: Friday, September 14th
    Mail Date: September 29th

    2. The Details

    Altered Letters:

    Because of the lengths of the resort names, most groups will be 2 letters per person. Some longer names will be 3 per person, and there are a few groups that will be one letter each. If there is an odd length group, someone will make one letter and one similarly sized embellished shape/Cricut icon, etc.

    Letters should be matted and embellished at least once. Letters should be ALL UPPERCASE.

    Letters: max of 2" (meaning the size you select on the Cricut dial is 2", with a shadow, it will be taller, that's fine. SCAL users, may find they have to set it larger than 2" to have a letter that is in the 2" range. Use your best judgment.)

    Be mindful of how the word will fit on a page. Basically, this means that not everyone can use a wide font like the Mickey font, with a large word.

    Regular Element Groups:

    This is a single element swap. Please, choose an element when you sign up. Group numbers will vary with the number of participants, so wait until the swap is closed before you get too far in the “manufacturing” process. I have started with 4 people per group, but some may grow to 6 people, or shrink. As long as there are 2 people in a group, and they want to do it, we will keep the group.

    Element list:
    -Signage/ Topper: should be the name of the resort, does not have to be traditional 2x8 – other sizes/orientation acceptable also, double matted.
    - 2 Journaling Boxes: at least a 3x3 writing area, double matted
    - 2 Tags: no smaller than 2 x 3 and larger is fine, double matted
    - Box and Tag: 1 each of journal box and tag, described as above
    - Library Pocket and Tag: no smaller than to hold a 2x3 tag
    - 2 Slide Mounts
    - File Folder: (2 per person if mini-sized)
    - Matchbook: Include a blank page inside
    - Shaker Box
    - Paper Piecing
    - License Plate
    - 1 matted song/lyric/poem/quote/wordle: double matted, minimum text area 3x3
    - 3 Altered Paper Clips
    - 4 Embellished Shapes: at least 1 ½ by 1 ½ inches each, double matted (unless double matting is not feasible for the shape – use your judgement)
    - 2 Borders: 12 inches long, double matted
    - 2 Photo Frames--for a 4 x 6 photo, double matted
    - 2 Photo mats: double matted, sized to fit a 4x6 photo
    - ATC
    - Altered CD

    Embellishment Suggestions: 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).

    Info: Once this swap closes, I will send out my mailing/contact info (along with slideshow info if you’d like to add to one main slideshow). Please send me yours: name, DISname, address, email, phone number (only will be used if I can’t contact you through PM or email)

    3. Packaging:
    Place your elements or letters in a Ziploc bag large enough to completely hold them and be closed. If you have a long piece, saran wrap is a great alternative. Do not address your items to a particular swapper. Label with your name, DISname and Group.

    Element groups: Place all your bags, in a GALLON sized bag (or larger if needed). Label with your name, DISname and Group.

    Altered Letter Groups: You may put these in a sandwich bag or larger. Label with your name, DISname and Group.

    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.

    4. Mailing:
    You may send to me, by any method you choose unless you are mailing after September 29th. Then, you must mail Priority WITH 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: Envelope-$5.15, Small Box-$5.35, Medium/Standard box $11.35, Large box-$15.45.

    -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.)

    -If you want your items shipped to you with DC, please include the .75, and a filled out slip. I will not mail the items back with delivery confirmation unless you include the .75 and the filled out DC form.

    5. Miscellaneous:
    If you haven’t swapped before, I am limiting you to THREE 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 so we can make arrangements for an angel or other help if needed.

    Most importantly HAVE FUN!!

    Got you both!

    I was planning on planting myself at the computer today, but I need to run to home depot quickly- while doing laundry this morning, the washer went unbalanced (1 set of sheets, that's it!) and it destroyed our dryer vent (and we don't have a line outside to hang the darn sheets on!) so we need to grab a replacement vent and pray that only the vent was damaged. Happy Monday :)
