Swap Reminder and a little inspiration

Hi everyone, just a quick reminder from us about the next swap….

For the swap you will be assigned a partner and a theme to follow. You then create a mini album to send to your partner, and you will receive one in return.

Issue 11 Swap Theme—Mini Tag Book

  • Create a mini book from large shipping tags. You can bind it as you wish, with a single binding ring through the tag hole or be more creative if you prefer!
  • Sign up deadline—Sunday the 15th July by 1pm GMT. You must have emailed Felicia your details by this date and time to be included in the swap
  • Swap partners announced—Monday the 16th July. You will be told who your swap partner is, and given their email address so that you can get in contact to exchange postal addresses, style preference, etc
  • Albums must be in the post by— Monday the 13th August (or sooner). Try to get the album posted as soon as you can so that your partner can hopefully receive it before the next swap is announced!
This time we have a little inspiration for you. I created this tag mini album cutting the tags from patterned paper. My title is ’10 things I love about summer’. I simply decorated the tags with elements from the paper collection. For the binding I used Tim Holtz Swivel Clasp. I also added some charms in summer theme.

This album is only an idea I had, I am sure you can create  a beautiful tag album for your partner, possibilities are endless.

The rules for the swap:

  • The album should be no bigger than 6″x6″
  • It should have at least 6 pages including the front and back covers.
  • Please remember that your swap partner (probably) doesn’t know you and the work you send will be their first impression of you – so make sure that you are proud of your work and would be happy to receive something similar.
  • Please do not sign up for this swap unless you can complete the swap, your partner may be overseas and you are responsible for postage fees.
  • You must have an email address to enter – this means you can contact your swap partner to discuss favourite colours etc.
  • Sometimes people send extra goodies with an album, this is a      lovely gesture but NOT compulsory, therefore it is up to you. Please do not expect to receive extras!
  • The last and most important rule is…. Enjoy creating!!

To join the swap you will need to email your details to Felicia at:

When you have finished your album consider taking a photo of it before posting it, and email this photo to Felicia. We will then publish these photos along side the next swap announcement. We will publish them without names just in case your partner has not yet received your album—we wouldn’t want to ruin the surprise!!

I hope you like our inspration and will want to join in the swap,

Happy Crafting,
