Purple Themed altered book tip-in swap

Number of people in swap:29

Number of swap partners:2
Description:

You are signing up to participate in a tip-in altered book swap. A tip-in is basically just like book altering, but instead of getting a book with pages to alter – you create pages to put in or to create an altered book. All tip-ins have different size requirements. For this one I would ask that you take an 8 ½ x 11 inch sheet of sturdy cardstock and turn it so that the height is 8 ½ and the width is 11. Fold the sheet across (horizontally) so you have a double page spread. Then alter away!!!

The theme for this swap is “purple".. anything purple from paint to embellishments.. no specific subject matter - that part is up to you. You will have 2 partners and you will need to send one double page spread to each of your partners – and you will receive one back from each of your partners. I would also like for you to make a signature tag for each of the double page spreads you send out so that if your pages are included in a book the owner can have info on all of the artists. Remember to leave an allowance in the middle of the spread to allow for binding, keep bulky embellishments away from the center of the page, and try to minimize heavy embellishments.

The ultimate goal would be to have enough pages for an entire book – so I plan on posting more of these swaps if this one goes well.

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS – NO QUESTION IS A STUPID QUESTION. YOU ARE WELCOME TO CHECK THE FAQ SECTION, BUT I REALIZE IT’S A LOT TO DIGEST, SO IF YOU PREFER TO ASK IT HERE OR EMAIL ME – I WELCOME YOU TO. I HATE SNOTTY HOSTS THAT RUIN THE EXPERIENCE (ESPECIALLY FOR NEWBIES THAT ARE WET BEHIND THE EARS) – SO YOU WON’T FIND THAT HERE. I WANT EVERYONE TO CREATE AND HAVE FUN.

hey guys.. glad to see some new people and some from my previous tip-in swap.. if you have any questions ask away (especially before cut off date to drop).. I would like everyone to either email me a picture of their work so I can post the picture, or give us a link to your picture so we can all enjoy looking at your hard work.. I hate that hosting this way I don't get to see what everyone has done in person.

Is a "signature tag" just your name and contact info on the pages themselves, or a separate tag that is attached to the page? Are all 4 sides of the double spread used?

PinkLotus 08/16/2006 #

A signature tag is a separate tag that can have any info about you that you want the other person to have.. your name, hobbies, etc.. you could put your pic on it if you wanted to even... what i did with mine was I did a stamp image and drew on one side, and on the other side I wrote like a little "bio" about myself... it is not attached to the page because if your partner makes a book with tip-in pages usually there is "roll call" page where all the artists tags are that created pages for the book..

only one side of the double page spread is used..

very good questions :)

Is the first of your "colorful" tip-ins or did I miss some already?

PinkLotus 08/17/2006 #

You just missed the "pink and girly" tip-in which was the first in the series.. I plan on doing more after this so feel free to jump in..

JerseyTjej 08/18/2006 #

Shoot! I was attracted by the purple but sorry I missed the pink! Marianne...wanna catch each other up? Regina

JerseyTjej 08/18/2006 #

Are the backs of the spread hidden, or should I color them? Also do you have a photo that I can see a little closer for detail? I'm a little unsure as this is my first attempt for someone else!

PinkLotus 08/18/2006 #

You don't do the back of the double page spread.. here's the links to my "pink" spreads..

and if Marianne doesn't want to do a pink one with you, I can do one with you.. just let me know - my email is [email protected]

i sign up for this swap but where i must send my tip in and how many tip in i must do? i'm newbie and french; thank you for your help Pascale (hulipa)

PinkLotus 08/19/2006 #

after the swap closes on sept 15 you can come back to this spot and click the link that tells you who your partners are (which also gives you their name and address) and you will also get a reminder email. You must do one double page spread for each of your two partners, along with a signature tag for each double page spread that you do.. hope this helps.

hello all! i'm new to altered books and just discovered this website. i thought this would be fun for me to do since LouisianaMommasGoodies stated in the description that no question is stupid and that she is not a snotty host! :) i can't wait to get started on this!!

PinkLotus 08/22/2006 #

LOL :) yep that is correct.. I was booted from another similar swap for asking a question .. ONE QUESTION.. I had never been on this site before and was having difficulty finding answers and posted a question while searching.. I promptly booted.. I have hosted and participated in MANY, MANY swaps of a variety of crafts and have never had one problem.. until the snotty host exerted her host power to elimanate those she felt was beneath her.. so I promptly created my own series of swaps and made sure I let you guys know (especially the newbies) that we are patient, kind, and understanding in my series of swaps.. if you ever have a question that you can't find the answer to.. ask away... i don't care if it has been asked 100 times before.. I will answer it.. as ANY gracious host would :)

user3098 08/24/2006 #

Oh, get over it! She didn't kick you out because you asked a question. She kicked you out because you didn't read her (very clear, as always) instructions, and then were snotty when she directed you back to the site faq for answers.

Face it, she rocks. I'd rather work with a host that expects people to follow instructions than one who bad mouths someone else.

PinkLotus 08/24/2006 #

lol you must be one of her goonies.. other fellow crafters warned me about you guys and the rath of Voth..lol..I am not the only one that has been treated poorly by her.. snotty high and mighty doesn't rock.. and the karma will come back to her.. and you ;-)

PinkLotus 08/24/2006 #

for the sake of your rediculous arguement.. did read the directions.. still couldn't find the answer ..I went thru the topic index and couldn't find it.. I would like to see a show of hands of all the people that read every last FAQ on the site.. WAS NEW TO THE SITE.. and rather than being patient and kind, she was rude.. I apologized for bothering her.. I dont see how that is snotty.. sounds like someone else reads a little too much into things.. ANYWAY.. I participate in many swaps and host as well.. all a big sucess.. so the problem doesn't lie here..go back to the queen and report back to her, 'here ;-) Hey and feel free to join this friendly little group we would love to have you :)

JerseyTjej 08/25/2006 #

I saw the pink pages and liked them very much! I am off to begin work on one to trade with you. I thougt it was interesting that I could actually read the page, LOL! It is in some scandinavian language! Thank you in advance.

PinkLotus 08/25/2006 #

LOL.. I had no idea... they were gifties I had received from another swap.. we will get you caught up.. I am thinking the next group of tip ins will be red..

PinkLotus 08/26/2006 #

I meant to say also.. the day after sign ups close on this swap... I will be listing the next in the series.. I am thinking "red" should be next..

arizonarose 09/ 4/2006 #

PinkLotus 09/ 6/2006 #

arizonarose 09/13/2006 #

Duh, I pressed the wrong site, please do not drop me. Just incase it registered before I clicked out. Thanks

PinkLotus 09/22/2006 #

PLEASE REMEMBER TO SEND A SIGNATURE CARD WITH YOUR TIP-IN.. I HAVE RECEIVED AT LEAST ONE WITHOUT IT.. THIS IS NECESSARY IF YOUR PARTNER WANTS TO INCORPORATE YOUR PAGE IN A BOOK.

Iowascrapemouse 09/22/2006 #

You have permission to upload my tip-in, that way I can have a copy of it...duh....I get so anxious to get things into the mail, I forget to scan them for myself... Thanks

user1106 10/ 2/2006 #

recieved my lovely tip in from Jude today. Thanx!

I think it works out best to scan your own page(s) before mailing rather than scanning the pages you receive -- thus, for copyright reasons, you are not infringing on the other artist's rights.

I have received lovely pages from Vikej Petterson in Sweden and Pat Evans in Omaha -- both are sooooo great!
