I'm so ready to do this for our group:) I'm hoping you all will join in for this fun easy swap.


Get a Composition note book , the 'cow printed' looking ones. Wal Mart has them 2 for $1.

We are going to make our partner a Smash Book or Junk Journal. You will not need to fill this up with your own art work, it's to be a book where your partner will do this once they get it.

Use scrapbook paper, cut to size , to cover the pages.

Every 10 pages , or howeversny you like, crumble them up, then straighten and color lightly on top of wrinkles or ink them.

Find the middle of your book, you will see the thread, and tie a ribbon , tightly, ...( I will post videos do you can see this .). Every 15-20 pages , do this .. It will keep the book together...

Make sure every page is completed like this.. You can glue 2 pages together for reinforcement if you like:)

Add pockets to some pages for your partner.. Tags as well.

Colored paper clips



Stamp some pages

Put quotes on others..

Ink the edges for a neat look..

Decorate the front, inside cover, and back

Inside cover of back, write your real name Swap bit name. Date . Group . Town and city that you are from!

This is senders choice so go ahead and start.

Please do neat work!

No flaking

I'm setting this as USA only since this book is so bulky.

Must have 15 type 3 swaps under your belt. Sorry newbies, but if any of you wants to do one, pm me and I can find you someone that will be willing to do so:)

Here's some tutorials and videos on what your book will look like!!

Have fun

This is what we ate doing. Finished results should look like this.

Tangie Baxter

If you have questions please ask:)

I will check profiles before assigning partners.

If you flake you will be banned from this group, and reported to Flakers, and other problem swappers group... I will add you to my profile as a flaker.. Sorry to be so rough, but If is really not a great feeling to get flaked on.

I really don't think we have any in this group;)

I always find it hard to give it out....

mizvicky 07/21/2012 #

Yes. But it makes me feel so much better when my partner gets it and I know she appreciates it.... So it really is worth it:)

mizvicky 07/24/2012 #

Almost finished with mine...

Going to upload a couple of pages in my flickr if anyone wants to peek..

snowqueen1426 07/24/2012 #

mizvicky 07/24/2012 #

@snowqueen1426 can't wait to see your pix:) I'm done now, just have to cover the front and back. I'm wondering though, if I should wait until partners are assigned . At least do the front and back in colors they like... Hmmmm Maybe ... We'll see:)

This was so fun... All the little pickets and tags I inserted... Cant wait to send it out:)
