We will be doing a mini album page swap using Graphic 45 Christmas Deluxe paper line. http://www.g45papers.com/category-s/3.htm Each person in the swap (8 of us) will pick a page out of that line, they are all listed below for you to check it out. You will then make 8 of the same pages, using the paper you have chosen. You will send 7 of them (keep one for your own mini album) in to me by November 15th, and I will swap them out and send them back. what you will get back is one page made by each member, thus creating a complete mini album, 8 pages total. It is really cool because each member of the group will have made one page in your completed mini. Does this make sense?
The book will be 6x6 square in shape. Please remember to keep a 1 inch area clear on the left side for binding purposes. You will use both sides of your patterned paper. the front of your page will be one side of the patterned paper, and the back will be the other. Please leave one side of your page for photos (add a frame, photo mat, pull outs, etc) and the other side will have a pocket (corner pocket, tag pocket, library pocket, etc) and a tag (please make a tag from the patterned paper or from a basic tag. Please include a ticket in the tag pocket with your name and email so that everyone knows who made what page, PLEASE DO NOT ATTACH TO THE PAGE, so that people can give the books as gifts if they would like. Please do your best work, and make each of your pages the same. Use ribbon, charms, trinkets, etc to make the pages fun and interesting. Then the ladies can use these for themselves, or give them as gifts, as they will be returned to you all just before Christmas. Each person will do their own binding, so make sure you leave room in order for holes or binding of whatever means. This paper is gorgeous, and I hope you all think this will be a fun swap.
As usual, when you ship to me, please include an envelope with your return address and return postage. PLease include two or three extra stamps just in case, which will be returned to you if they are not needed. We can communicate through email and comments on my blog. I look forward to this swap. I think it will be tons of fun, and will end us with a complete and beautiful mini album.
We will be using the following papers from the collection. When you respond, please let me know which paper you would like to use. It will be first come, first serve.
