Swap of the Week!

This week's swap is called 'Stamped Images'. If you have a fabulous collection of stamps, yet crave more, this is the swap for you! Everyone stamps out 6 sheets of A4 cardstock and the end result is that you receive back 6 different sheets stamped with images you might never have seen before! I have used a lot of the images I received on cards, and a few for scrapbooking. Here's a gorgeous card (not made by me, but just to give an idea) made with a stamped image (Studio G baby stamp set).

Swap of the Week!

This week's swap is called 'Page Kit'.

For this swap you provide 2 pieces of 6x6 pattern paper, 2 of 6x6 cardstock, ribbon, flowers and a few other bits & bobs. They should all coordinate so that an entire page (or double layout) can be created from the kit.

Pictured here is a layout created by Dawn by a kit in the last Page Kit swap provided by Amity (and there's enough leftover for a 2nd layout!)

Swap of the Week!

This week's swap is called 'Just Add Cardstock'.

For this swap you will be assigned a partner, and create a 3 piece page set & provide leftover card & pattern paper to match a particular photograph. Then all they need to do is ... just add cardstock!

What do you need to do? Sign up in the database, then upload your photograph (because your partner needs it to create your kit) into the appropriate Photo folder.

The swap closes on Friday, and then you will receive your partner's details.

There are two choices of sets ... for more details, see the swap announcment post on OzSwapTillYouDrop.

The set in the photograph was created by Dawn L for Deb T, to match some Harry Potter / owl photos.

Berrylicious Swap

This was an awesome swap! Not only was everyone in on time, but the quality of work was amazing!!! There's no way I could pick a favourite in this one ... just stunning.

Bushfire Relief Bingo!

OzSwappers are playing a game of bingo, and the criteria for joining the game is that you must make a donation to the Victorian Bushfire appeal. You can make your donation any way you like ... cash in a bucket at the cricket, online with the VISA, through your child's school, bank deposit ... and if you are truly strapped for cash why not donate goods or your time? Everyone chooses 10 words from a list of 30, and we will start calling the game on Monday. Are you an OzSwapper? Check the OzSwap posts for more details.

Swap of the Week!

This week's swap is called 'What's the Word?'

For this swap everyone is going to choose a fun, cool, clever, awesome word (like beach, baby, family, fun, friend, cool, cuddle ... whatever) ... and make 6 identical swap items. Then they get all swapped around and everyone will receive 6 different items in return. This is a swap item from last year, and you can see that this is what you could do with the word 'laugh' ... just a little example :)

What? You've never joined a swap before? You're not an OzSwap member?! Gosh ... we'll have to do something about that! :D Head over to OzSwapTillYouDrop, apply for membership (and return that completed questionnaire within 3 days) ... and you too can know the thrill of receiving awesome scrapping goodies in the post instead of bills!

Welcome to the OzSwapTillYouDrop blog. What is OzSwap? An Australian swap group for scrapbookers!

We have a new swap every week ... sometimes it's a theme, other times a colour, technique, product or specific paper line swap. It's a great way to try new things and receive work from other scrapbookers.

Hey ... I know ... why don't you come and play with us?
