Thank you rachelw1 for allowing me to do this swap. But I might use different wording.. I love journal swap.. I hope others too

Ok.. for this swap, we're going to find an A5 book to make a journal. If it's hard for you to find this book size, you can use something slightly smaller or bigger.

Then, we're going to decorate a bit the cover.. make it fun for your partner to receive. After that we're going to fill the Journal about whatever things about us or whatever that we thought that begin with alphabet A to Z, English alphabet.

Some example, Alphabet A.. Age : write about how old are you. Not just one line.. make at least a page.. maybe you can add detail like what do you think of age, what age appropriate to get married.. Then next page Alphabet B: write about birthday.. the celebration, which year you love most etc.. or if you love books you can write about books.. the possibility are endless right. Just be creative with what you want to share.

Make sure you kind of highlight the word you choose at the beginning of entry.. Use your creativity like write it big... bold.. decorate or use alphabet stickers.. So your partner will know what is your choice of word for that particular alphabet.

You can also add some other entry at the last.. maybe some notes to your partner or what you feel about this journal.. Feel free to use your creativity to make things look great like maybe you can add some extra if you like.. things like photos or pockets or pamphlet. But extra is not compulsory for this swap.

Ok.. I hope it's a clear idea of this swap... :

  • 26 entry for 26 english alphabet from A to Z
  • decorate cover
  • highlight the choice of word for each entry
  • Write nicely so your partner can understand your entry.

You have until end of this month to sign up and till end of next month to send.. It's almost 2 months so it's plenty of time to do your journal.. You can start now if you wish because it's kind of sender's creativity and choice.

Journal is a fun swap with lots of time needed, it's hard to reproduce the work.. so the requirement :

  • 4.95 and above
  • 15 completed and rated swap type 2 or 3 swaps with at least 2 type 3 swaps
  • No recent unexplained 1 and 3
  • Please don't flake.. If something happen, let me know..

What is an A5 book.. This swap sounds like fun

siouxx05 10/ 5/2012 #

@Wingy an A5 book is half the size of an A4 book.. 7 x 5 inches to 8 x 6 inches..

littlehana86 10/ 5/2012 #

Thank you @siouxx05 for clarifying that ;) I'm not sure the size in inches

CraftyLass 10/ 5/2012 #

For future reference @littlehana86 : 1 inch = 2.54 cm :D

A5 is around 21x15cm

CraftyLass 10/ 5/2012 #

, so it's nearer 8x6"

Sorry for the double post!

littlehana86 10/ 5/2012 #

Aww...unfortunetely I have too little swaps under my belt, but I absolutely love the idea!

Turnip74 10/ 5/2012 #

Is A5 about the size of a composition book?

littlehana86 10/ 5/2012 #

@strawberrymouse we'll do another round later.. :) Can someone help @Turnip74 I don't know the standard in US but it is the size of composition book if in my country.. But if it around 8x6", slightly smaller or bigger.. it's ok for this swap

strawberrymouse 10/ 6/2012 #

@littlehana86 great! Count me in then...or maybe I manage to complete the remaining ones until then...

Turnip74 10/ 8/2012 #

I am excited to try this, but at a loss how to start. Do we decorate each page like a scrapbook, or only the cover? Is it mostly writing inside, or decoration? I looked at some examples online, but they seem to be more like a scrapbook with little entries journaled in. Please help me so I can get started. Cricket

littlehana86 10/30/2012 #

@cricketsarge we have to at least decorate a bit on cover, highlight the choice of word, write at least one page of the word you choose.. additional page or additional decoration is optional..

Ok.. partners assigned.. all ratings explained.. I hope everyone will have good times making this journal.. Kindly let me know if any problems come up..
