Swap #16=>Notebook

Hello everyone,

Sorry for the delayed post.. Just got back from a holiday and took a while to settle back to my normal routine. A big thank you for everyone who joined us in our comeback swap of choosing your own elements to build your card. We have gotten such fabulous entries.. Cannot wait to show off the amazing work done by everyone.

Next month is friendship day so like last year we thought of swapping something which would be memorable and special.. This month we would be swapping notebooks.. Preferably shop bought ones which you would alter although we are not averse to the idea of getting a spiral bound one done by yourself.

POINTS TO NOTE:-

1) The minimum size of your note book is to be 6"x8".

2) A minimum of 100 pages to be there in the book.

3) if you are getting a spiral bound one done, make sure you use either chipboard of card stock of 400 gsm or higher for the cover to ensure that it is sturdy and durable.

4) You have to embellish one side of the insides. Basically personalising the insides too maybe with an image or a quote or anything but make sure that it is flat. That means no pearls, rhinestones or anything 3-d inside.

5) Since we give a minimum size please do not expect the same size like the one you have made for we don't know who is making what size.

6)How you do the cover is upto you. Make sure you make something which someone would like to get in return.

7) Pack your swap well. Last time we had some swappers sending in cards with flowers in flat envelopes which were bound to squash them. Please consider your own hard work when packing to ensure you do not end up damaging it yourself in transit because you did not pack it well.

8) Last but not the least have fun. It was such an amazing experience to have the opportunity to see some amazing creations.

The last date for registrations is 7th of July and We need the final pictures by no later than 23rd July. Sneak peeks are to come in as soon as you begin working. It really isn't that big an ordeal to click pictures while working is it. I get tired asking for sneak peeks and having excuses thrown at me.

Your partner has to receive the swap no later than 5th of August. 

The rest of the rules are the same. No sharing of swaps till we reveal them  on the swap central blog. Once it is on the blog you can share it on your personal space.

We have no issues if you want to watermark your work with a stamp or a sticker to declare it is made by you.

Please drop in an email with your postal address when you have joined the swap.

NONE OF US WILL ENTERTAIN ANY PERSONAL MESSAGES ON WHATSAPP OR FACEBOOK OR OUR EPRSONAL EMAIL ID'S. IF I HAVE ONE MORE PERSON DOING THAT WE WILL BAR YOU FROM THE SWAP IMMEDIATELY. ANY COMMUNICATION IS TO BE DONE THROUGH THE SWAP CENTRAL EMAIL ID- swap.central.india@gmail.com.

For any further queries feel free to email us and we would help you in the best manner we can.

Thanks and hope to see a lot of you join us..


Hugs,
Khush

One query. Does the cover have to be paper? Or is fabric ok?
