December Daily - December junk journal

All postal except for Pegster - just waiting for her new address! Thanks everyone for a great swap!

UPDATE!!!! 11/23/13 For those of you in group #1 I have one person that mailed late and it looks as if I will not receive their package until Wed. at the earliest. I hoped to mail these by Tuesday at the latest. If I wait for this package I will not be able to mail these until Friday - which means that you will not recieve them until the end of the 1st week of December. We also have one other swapper that is MIA! I have made a few extra pages for each book! So here is the deal for those that got their package to me in time! If you would like to get your book back sooner let me know and I will send your book out on Tuesday! You will still have a 14 page book but will not recieve pages from the late parties! Thanks, Danise


What are we going to be Swapping? A December Daily - December Junk journal combo.
A December Daily is a album in which you can document your life in December on the Days leading up to Christmas December 25th. Normally you number the pages by day - in this book we will leave that step up to you allowing you to tailor the book to your needs. Ideas to include in the December Daily- junk journal - sheets of paper; plain, lined, and or graph, Tags, envelopes, flaps, paper bags, ephemera, die cuts, fabric, lace, trims, vellum, cards, chipboard, pages from old books, acetate, stamped quotes and/or images, tab dividers, washi tape, paint chip cards, playing card etc.. is a good way to use things from your stash and Use things that may not be your most common things. Think outside the box and have fun creating!!


Each participant will create 13, - 6X8 (portrait) 1 page Christmas junk journal pages decorated on both sides. Your pages must be made from good quality cardstock as your base (Please no thin one sided pattern paper) please leave 1/2 inch of the left edge free of lettering,images or bulky embellishments so everyone can bind however they choose (Bind it All, binder rings, ribbon, etc.) In other words be aware that things in the area could be cut off when you bind your book - we don't want to cut off part of a word or poor Santa's head) Also, remember to leave some space for the recipient to add their own journaling, photos, etc. Each page must be embellished at least 2-3 times (jewels, diecuts, brads, ribbon, buttons, etc.) Doodling does NOT count as an embellishment. I will make the front and back cover using covered chip board in order to make the book more stable. Please stick with more traditional Christmas colors so that we end up with a cohesive product. Pockets, fold outs, stamping, stitching, chunky embellishments, envelopes, tags are encouraged! Let's make these really fun and unique. Do your best most creative work.
Please make sure that you use enough adhesive and a GOOD adhesive to ensure that the cards will hold up, yet not so much that they stick together

DO NOT sign up if you cannot handle the commitment. I have NEVER flaked on a swap and would appreciate the same respect in return. If you are not current on ALL your swaps or you have FLAKED and not made up for it, DO NOT sign up for this swap as you will not be allowed to participate



There are a lot of wonderful examples on pinterest but I could not get my board to link - but you can find many great examples there!
HERE ARE PICS FROM THE JUNK JOURNAL THAT WAS DONE LAST YEAR:
2012 Junk Journal
2012

2peas Posting

I expect participants to check in weekly on the thread, and I will do so also! Please communicate with me if you have questions or problems. If I have not seen you checking in as requested, I will PM you. If I do not receive a response within 3 days, I will assume you do NOT want to be a part of the swap any longer and will angel out your spot. I have NEVER flaked and appreciate the same in return... I can't stress this enough!!!

Due Date: NO LATER than November 23th, 2013 (this date is IN MY HANDS - not a mail by date)
Please be respectful of this, as I will be and others are counting on you! I will remain firm on this and ship back quickly, so please keep that in mind.

Angel Policy
I 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.

Packaging, Identification, and Shipping
Please package your cards in a ziploc bag and you must LABEL this bag with your peaname and real name AND group so it will help me keep these organized as they arrive and also when I begin to swap out. Also, please include a piece of paper with your name/peaname and return address so that I can keep track of this as sometimes the package you send in gets ripped/torn by USPS and this way I have all the information at hand when I begin the sorting/swapping process.


Return Postage - I am requiring $6 CASH (US dollars) for return shipping. Absolutely NO pre-paid labels as the PO will not accept these! I will only send these back via priority envelopes/boxes so that I have tracking numbers to prove my return ship date and also so that each of you can track your pkg. If you are in more then one group please send me $12.35 for the larger priority box.

My Address:
Danise Williams
104 Gawayne Dr.
Mabank, TX 75156

If you ship AFTER 11/18 I will REQUIRE a tracking number to verify you have shipped and so that I can track the package. ALSO - if you plan to mail 1st class, you need to remember that it can take up to a week to be delivered. Do NOT expect to mail 1st class one or two days before this swap is due and expect me to wait for your pkg to arrive and hold up everyone else.

Clear as Mud? Any questions feel free to p-mail me - Thanks Danise

If you have a theme that you would like to do on your page-examples include - shopping, sleighride, Santa, Cookies, etc... Let me know and I will post it next to your name so that we don't get any duplicates.

Question, as I was rereading the post I saw it says to make 13 pages, but you have 14 total spots if you count the covers. Do we actually need to make 14 or just not send in the one for ourselves?

Pegesters - you don't have to tell me what theme you are doing but if you have one in mind that you want to do. I will add it next to your name so we don't have repeats. Great idea! Thanks for the suggestion! Danise

Thanks for checking in! thanks to all of you that offered to take another spot in group 2. I will see if we get any more interest this weekend before I officially open group two. I would be willing to do a spot or two and I have a few local friends I am trying to talk in to joining me - so with a little luck we can have another group I think they would make a nice little gift

Question. I'm looking through my supplies, and I have tons of Christmas flair, but obviously I don't have 13 of the exact same flair button. Would it be alright to use 13 different ones as long as the rest of the page was the same?

Mommaofdudes Thanks for joining in and Using different flair on each page is fine! It is often hard to find 13 of the same embelishment - as long as they are all similar that is great!

TxDanise: the first group says covers and 12 spots so 13 all up.

The second group says covers and 13 spots so all up 14.

Are they both different?

Started shopping and mostly finished my proto type. So excited about tis project. Only thing I'm running into is most things are done by 12 not 13 so remembering to factor that in. How can I post pictures to show to see if mine is right?

SaberSpencer Sorry I forgot to number my cover again It is 13 6X8 pages decorated on both sides per group.

Amanda, If you want us to take a peek at your masterpiece You can upload a picture to the two peas gallery or another online photo sharing site and then link it here.

I know sometime it is hard to find 13 of the same thing to use on your project as long as they all have similar items- example - one flair button, twine, diecut item, journal spot etc. They don't have to be all exactly identical!

I couldn't sleep last night because I had cover designs running through my head Now if I can just find what I have in mind?
