As everyone already knows I am completely addicted to mini albums. I would love to do a mini album swap if there was anyone else interested. Hopefully this will work out here are the rules I am thinking...

I want to make sure that we all remember that everyone has different styles and part of the fun of this type of swap is getting to see the various styles, etc. that each of us have! It is definitely how I learn new techniques, styles.

"Great things come in small packages, and a mini album is the perfect way to package up your memories!"

Important Guidelines!
Each participant will make a mini album to swap with 1 partner.
MINIMUM Album Requirements: 5 or more pages fully embellished and the book must be bound somehow (either with rings or binding machine). You may use whatever medium for the album that you like, but remember it needs to be durable so that it will last.
Some Ideas: Paperbag albums, Chipboard albums, Coin Envelope albums, accordion books, flag books, tag books, pouches or envelopes, and many more. There are so many options so that is why I am keeping it open. I do ask that your albums are large enough for photos NOTHING smaller then 3x3 (the larger the better)

Lets not skimp our partners; put your best work out there and really show your scrapbooking skills here. Only sign up if you can really devote some time and energy into creating something beautiful for your partner - something you are proud to put your name on! Once partners are assigned, you will need to chat with each other to find out color preferences, themes, etc. Spend time getting to know your partner so you can make something they will love to use and show off! Please post pictures when you have received your album also!!

Materials
Good quality materials are required. You must use AT LEAST 3 embellishments on each page (inking, distressed edges, ribbon, charm, tag, etc). Please use lots of embellishments and make each page a work of art in and of itself. Include as many mediums as you like. This is the time to really let your creativeness shine. If you need some ideas check out YouTube for some wonderful ideas. ALSO: make sure that you use enough adhesive and a GOOD adhesive to ensure that the albums & pages will hold up, yet not so much that they stick together!

Colors/Theme: will be based on your partner's preferences. So with that said when you sign up please give a list of colors, themes and styles you like to give your partner some ideas.

Due Date: NO LATER than July 20, 2011
This is the date that the album needs to be IN YOUR partners hands - NOT a postmark by date. Please be respectful of this as your partner is counting on you!

AngelI will be posting to the thread weekly, and if I notice that a swapper has not posted and I cannot reach them, I will find an angel to replace their spot.

Shipping DC# IS REQUIRED - post DC on this thread!
Ready to ship? Please package your albums however you see fit to mail to each other. Please place album in a ziploc bag as a minimum (we're into the rainy season and want to keep ALL albums safe from hazardous weather conditions). DC # is required. You MUST post DC number on this thread so that I can keep track of who has sent and received.


Here are some cool videos to give you guys some ideas

I'd like to join! Maybe someone out there would be interested in making a coin envelope album or tag album?

Maybe it would be easier to see if someone could swap one of those with me?
I usually make chipboard shaped albums.

Hi Everyone
Here are the questions:

What kind of mini album would you like to recieve? (name 3)
I would love a bound paper bag or a gatefold
Any type if fine as long as it is sturdy My granddaughter loves to look at them so they need to be strong she is only 19 months old. And really my whole family looks at the mini's when ever they are over.
What kind of mini ablum do you perfer to make? (name 3)
I will make what ever my partner wants, but my speciality is the chipboard because it is so durable. I would love to make a gatefold card for my partner
What colors do you like?
I think maybe the pinks and greens like the new pink paislee butterfly garden
What kind of style do you like? (like Vintage, shabby chic)
soft shabby chic, soft vintage
What are some themes you would like? (like maybe you have gone on a trip, or had a baby)
if it is the colors above then garden, nature, beachy, spring season.
If you go on line and look at the paper you will see how beautiful the colors are together.
I always put pictures in my albums
This is going to be so much fun

Questions Answered:
Question from Jess
Do you prefer it chunky or not so chunky?
I like super chunky....the more in my mini the better I like it! I agree with her, I love it when they won't close all the way, you know you have a lot of good stuff in there.

Tag, coin envelope, gatefold.

What kind of mini ablum do you perfer to make? (name 3)
Chipboard, acrylic (premade ones)-onyl made these so far.

Combo of pink/black/red or nature/foresty/garden combo of greens, browns, neutrals

What kind of style do you like? (like Vintage, shabby chic)
I do like vintage, distressed, paris, postage but I also like simple childlike vintage and baby, hope it makes sense. Think Teresa Collins, echo park, wish I could do more graphic 45/TH style.

Themes: rockstar themed for my baby boy or my 4yr daughter, disney princess/girly themed for daughter, daughter/mom/grandma.
