A Scrappy Swap!!!

Are you bored of the same old scraps in your scrap file??? Bored of using the same PP....Bored of seeing those unused Die cuts, ribbons and buttons lying around with you for months and years......

Well here's something for you then....

A Scrappy Swap....well as the name suggests its about scraps.... and its of course a swap.....


Now for rules

1. The PPs you send should be of good quality.....something on the lines of  DCWV, Echo Park, Paper Mania, American Crafts etc which can be put to use ....

2. A min measurement of 3X3 PP is compulsory ...anything less than that should be avoided....a larger sheet is more than welcome and upto you!!!


3. CS of min 3X3 again....anything less than that should be avoided....a larger sheet is more than welcome and upto you!!!

4. Apart from PP's and CS's one can send Embossed sheets (min 4x4), Die cuts, Buttons, Ribbons (min 4"), Punch Crafts (properly cut..no half cuts please), Stamped Images and sentiments (clear impressions  and with enough margin to cut and use it somewhere) and any other embellishment in decent condition.

5. Please dont send any unfinished projects ....

6. The size of envelop in which one can fit all of these things and send across should be 5"X7".

7. Just to avoid unpleasantness during the swap and not to hurt anyone's feelings....kindly click a photograph of what you are sending to others and what you are receiving from others....In case of any complaints we may want to fall back on those photographs!!!

8. Last Date of Registration is 17th March

9. The Partner names will be sent to you by email by 20th March 

10. The packages should be dispatched to the respective partners before or on 3rd April

Please ensure that they are scraps and not bits of paper or embellishment etc that you may have forgotten to throw away into the dustbin!!! Plus its a swap....if you would not want to receive something do not send it across either!!! Sorry if I sound rude but sometimes such things do happen and its only to make the swap more enriching for all :) !!!

Where did the idea germinate:

A casual chat on BBM with my crafter friends Tejal Mehta Shah and Khushboo Rathi made us realise that we all had gotten bored of our scraps and some have been there with us since ages....and that we needed some change as we never finished them ever but more and more got added to them with every project that we did ....so thats when we decided that maybe a swap could help us !!! So here it is finally .....

Please spread the word around .....
