New year swap?

Post by Scrap Monkey on Wed 2 Jan 2019 - 17:26

I know a few of us said we were in a bit of a mojo-less state with our papercrafting. Would a swap of some sort help do you think? I'm happy to organise one if people want to do something. Any thoughts on what? Perhaps we could start a list then choose? Thoughts?

A bell rings, Tina - did someone (maybe Karelyn?) recently suggest a challenge, on the basis that it wasn't as, well, challenging as a swap? Can't remember whether any more details were mentioned: maybe whoever it was would remind us.

However, it would be a very good idea, what with you re-starting your papercrafting, several mojo-less as you said, and Lorraine back with us.

I'll happily join in, as long as whatever it is doesn't have to be finished until at least the end of the month: taking down decorations at the moment, then packing, then off to see the in-laws Sunday, back Tuesday night, mammogram Wednesday at the hospital and there will be a check-up after that, possibly also in January. So can't see me surfacing till at least the middle of the month!

yes id like to do something. Posting things is a bit tricky which is why i suggested a challenge instead, sort of like pick a theme (colour or subject or whatever but sufficiently vague) and then each to do any kind of papercraft project on that theme and a picture of it to be posted here by a certain date (or we will just procrastinate). Maybe we could have a secret vote just for fun and see which one we all thought best? or not, if you dont want the competitive element. So people could do a scrapbook page or make a card, a bookmark or whatever.

That's an idea. I know there is a challenge over on UK scrappers at the moment where people use a christmas card as inspiration; maybe we could do something like that?

Ah - it was you who suggested the challenge, Maria: couldn't remember.

Anything which is Christmas-based is fine by me, Tina!

Not an actual Christmas swap, don't worry. I'm sick of it, having been making christmas stuff since September Crying Laughin ! I like the idea of using something else as inspiration, whether it's a card / layout/ magazine cover / record sleeve / whatever. It was just the UKS example of a christmas card design as inspiration (as if it were a sketch IYSWIM).

A christmas card inspiration is as good as any other, for example, using Di's card, I could pick green, black and red, I could make a card/LO incorporating beads and/or thread, I could create a card with the focal point being the main picture taking up most of the front, layered twice or I could do something Christmas themed.

Brilliant idea, Ruth - and would solve the problem for Maria, as there's a picture of the card she received from Jo (or any of the other cards) on here so, even if she's packed everything away, she could use that/those for inspiration.

Great idea, I like the chalenge and not a swap at the moment as I wont have much stash to play with/use for awhile yet.
We did something on the noughts and crosses/tic tac toe board once I think, that could be done and each month we do/pick a line and then lastly do a full house, could take 9 months to get to the end of it without someone having to keep coming up with a new idea.
I'm in anyway.

(found it)

ok well lets do it then. But we need to make a commitment to joining in and doing it or it will just go by the board and noone will bother. So lets say challenge rather than swap, any kind of papercraft, and I challege you to use THIS as inspiration



(so like Ruth said - it could be winter, blue, white , green, about penguins or skiing or snow christmas, using chevrons or dots or washi tape, ribbon or used as a sketch etc)

sign up here and then we want a picture of your papercraft project uploaded by the end of January. (unsure whether its best to have a gallery in which case can someone make one, or just upload the pics here. Then one of the entrants can set one for next time, etc etc.

so who is in?

Great girls... who is missing... Lorraine? Alison?

Ive started mine because we go on honeymoon on 24th and I have mum here from 20th so i need to get it done by then. I hope to finish it next week. Should we just post a pic on this thread for simplicity or should we havea gallery?

Probably better to have a gallery, Maria - I'm sure Lorraine will set one up when she next comes on.

Hi, I did say "I'm in" but in the post before you put the picture up Maria, LOL, so I do have a card that I made Paul for Christmas and as things have gone a tad bonkers here I'm going to ask that it be ok if I use that so as to show willing, or would you all find that cheating?

ok, ive added you Alison.

Yes, use your card if you want to, if it fits the challenge... the idea is just to get everyone papercrafting again, but im sure we would like to see the card.
