This is gonna be a fun 2-part embellishments / mini album swap, WITH A TWIST. Interested? Read on! :)
Unlimited sign ups.
Sign ups close on 30 April 2011.


Put together 6 similar goodie bags of embellishments in SHABBY CHIC/VINTAGE style.

In each bag, you MUST include:-
1. 1 Large 3D Flower* (1.5-2 inch)
2. 2 Medium 3D Flowers* (1-1.5 inch)
3. 2 Small 3D Flowers* (less than 1 inch) or 4 Flat Flowers or 4 Leaves

(Option: Instead of sending items 1, 2 & 3, you can also send ONE of those big bunch of prima, webster's, petaloo bouquet that has leaves, vines & flowers)

4. 2 Trims of at least 10 inches each
5. 1 Metal Embellishment
6. 5 other embellishments* (pins, diecuts, tags, chipboard elements, blings etc)
7. 1 Sticker or Stamped image/phrase on paper or transparency
8. Any other interesting goodies

*Flowers, embellies can be handmade or store bought.

Keep 1 bag, mail 5 to me for redistribution.
Goodie Bags are to be posted by 15 May 2011.

Upon receiving the swap bags, put them together with the bag you kept for yourself and MAKE A MINI ALBUM! For who?

Aha! This is a game of "ANGEL & MORTAL" / "SECRET SANTA". You're an "Angel" and will be assigned a "Mortal", whom you will make an album for!

Somebody ELSE is your "Angel" and she will make you an album. You WILL NOT KNOW who your "Angel" is, and you must not disclose your identity to your recipient "Mortal" until you have shipped! Surprise surprise?! :)

1. Album must have at least 5 pages (10 sides, excluding front cover), and at least 6"x6" or 5"x7". You may choose your own paper collection. Exercise your judgement and pick something you think your "Mortal" might like. No obligations though, it's sender's choice so just have fun!
2. You can ONLY USE the embellishments in the bags, nothing else. Ink them, mist them, paint them and make them work for you!
3. You must use up at least 75% of the embellishments. All unused embellishments are to be mailed to your "Mortal" together with the mini album you made.

- Shipping deadline for Goodie Bags is 15 May 2011. I need to see that the package is postmarked 15 May. Bags should reach me no later than 31 May.
- Please be willing to ship internationally.
- Please put your name on EVERY bag. (so that I don't accidentally send your own bag back to you!)
- Print and include 2 copies of your name & address together with your goodie bags. One is for me to mail the swap bags back to you. The other is for me to give to your "Angel" to ship the album to you direct.
- No SAE is required. I'll package and bill you exact shipping via PAYPAL. (If you make me an extra goodie bag, I'll pay for the return shipping of the swapped goodie bags)
- PM me for address once you are ready to ship.
- PM me the DC# after you ship.
- Shipping Deadline for Mini Album is 15 July 2011. Ship directly to your "Mortal", not to me.

Any Qs? Just ask!
