The holiday tag swap is on! I haven't hosted a swap for years so have patience with me as the rules may change a bit.

Twelve sign up slots for 12 holidays. First come first serve so when you post list your first and second choice please!

1. Christmas - fredfreddy - RECEIVED
2. Summer - Wahinijen - RECEIVED
3. Valentine's Day - lfane - RECEIVED
4. Easter - counselor58 - received
5. Thanksgiving - paperaddictedpea - RECEIVED
6. birthday boy - scraphop - RECEIVED
7. birthday girl - wstevens - RECEIVED
8. 4th of July - tyuill1976 - RECEIVED
9. St. Patrick's Day - tampascrapper - RECEIVED
10. Spring - scraphop - RECEIVED
11. Winter - paperaddictedpea - RECEIVED
12. Halloween - poke - RECEIVED

Requirements: See my post in the gallery

here about bad, good, and great tag examples. Shoot for good or great. If it looks bad, they will be returned to you.

A few rules:
1) good cardstock base paper
2) no handwritten titles. Computer font, rubons, stamps are all good. Pens may be used for doodling or edge work.
3) Size is up to you. The birthday tag example measures 6 by 3 inches. That should be the largest size. It can be round, triangular...
4) Just spend time making these. Think "would someone else want this on their page?" If there is any doubt, then work harder on your project.
5) The tags do not have to be identical. I know it can be hard to find 12 of the same item. Just try to keep them similar.

I am going to have a mailing date of APRIL 10. That gives you a long time to work on them.

You can enclose stamps or cash to cover postage. Include a SA envelope large enough for 12 tags. Include enough postage to cover a 12 oz envelope from 95119 zip code. I will peamail my address to each person.

Thanks.

Thanks! I've been wanting to try a swap for a while but I've been intimidated. I might be willing to take a second spot to help fill up the swap - would you consider a generic winter tag instead of a second Christmas one, or the New Years one? I would happily make a winter tag - I have some papers that I've been dying to use!

OOO seasons are good, I didn't consider that. I'll change NYE to winter and fathers/mothers day to spring.

I have you down for winter paperaddictedpea!

I would like to sign up for birthday boy. I have never participated in a swap but today I scrapped with two new pea friends that regularly participate on the board and decided I would like to give it a try.

I hope this didn't post multiple times! I have completed my Birthday Boy tags and would like to take the Spring or Fall spot. I have a spring tag idea spinning around in my brain!

Also by sure to sign your name to the back of each tag so we know who created each work of art.

When you are finished, peamail me and I'll send my address. Be sure to include a large enough SA envelope and either stamps or cash to send a 12 oz package back from the 95119 zip code.

Cute tags Scraphop! Two of my brothers play guitar so I'll definitely put that tag to good use.

Here's how you can add a link: Open the picture of your tags in the gallery in a different browser tab, highlight the URL in your browser, right-click on the highlighted link and then click Copy. Next, click "URL" below your message board post (underneath the smilies), right-click in the URL box that will pop up, select Paste, click OK, and then enter the text you want for your link (ex. my tags) in the next box and click OK again.

Hope this makes sense - I'm really tired today and probably not expressing myself too clearly!

I finished my Thanksgiving tags tonight. I took a picture and was going to post it, but the lighting in my house is terrible and the colors in the tags are all off. I'll try another photo tomorrow in daylight.

This has been really fun. I'd never made tags before and now I don't want to stop making them!
