Swap#9=> Envelope mini album

Hello everyone,

We are back with a brand new swap here at swap central and it is celebration time.. Swap Central is going to be one year old and we (the gossip girls) are just so excited. Never did we imagine in our wildest dreams that we would get so much love shown to us through our swaps. It means a lot to us.

So, to begin the celebrations we bring to you a mini album swap, specifically an envelope mini. You can use any tutorial you find to make your mini- in short go wild and try something which you have been wanting to but haven't so far.. :P

Just keep in mind the following points when making your envelope mini:-
1) The minimum size of your mini has to be 4"x6".

2) Well, we cannot really have a swap without a twist... an envelope mini with a color tone.. We give you the following option, pick any one and make your mini using those tones. Please ensure that you DO NOT mix the color tones. Stick to the one you have chosen. The color tones for you are
* Bright and Bold
* Vintage
* Monochromatic
We would be doing a color tone post to make it easier for you to understand what we mean.

3) Since it is cerebration time, we thought we'd keep the theme as CELEBRATION. Now let us see how innovatively and creatively can you use the theme. You have to embellish a minimum of 5 pages + 2(front and back cover)/ that equals to 14 sides.

4) This is going to be a one and a half month swap, running from March15th to April 30th. We would announce the new swap on the 1st of May. Sneak peeks to start coming in ASAP. Final pictures by the 20th of April. Partner name as usual will be given out only after receiving the final pictures.

4) Kindly enter your name in the inklinkz and send in your details to Old swappers, just drop in a line if the details remain the same else update us with the new details.

5) Please ensure the quality of work you send out is something you would like to receive. Despite urging you guys, we have come across some seriously shoddy work. We do not want to judge but you give us no option. It just isn't a nice feeling to receive something in which no effort has been put in whereas on the other the other person has put in a lot of effort. At swap central, we believe in quality over quantity and would continue to do so.

6) In case you are interested in sending to an international participant, let us know then maybe we would have some international entries too.

7) Like last time, I would be communicating to you twice for updates. With a failure to respond to either, your name would automatically be cut off from the swap list with no further intimation.

8) Just go ahead and have fun..

Once you get your partner name, kindly keep up in the loop regarding dispatch and receipt of your swap.

Hope to see some amazing work for this swap too. Happy crafting and happy swapping.
