POCKET LETTER SWAP {{CLOSED}}

HEY ALL!!

I'm starting another swap - hopefully you guys aren't getting tired on me, lol!! This one was bound to happen - POCKET LETTERS!

Pocket letters are a great way to 1) use your scrap paper 2) get to know others 3) learn new styles and techniques.  Hopefully you guys will be encouraged to meet new people and learn new things. Who knows, maybe you will find a best friend across the way!

Here is the video for the swap. THIS is where you sign up. Must have a YouTube channel with uploaded videos to participate.

Although, I  "explain" the swap in the video - it may not come across as clear. So here it is spelled out and without the pressure of the video (i.e. mistakes) :)

*5 ANGELS WILL ALSO BE POSTED*

Its time for another swap - Whoo Hoo!! First stop by my YOUTUBE channel and watch the detailed video and sign up there, if you are interested in joining! (You must have a Youtube channel)

We will be swapping {{Christmas/Winter Themed}} SHAPED GIFT TAGS!! The idea is to have a small stash ready to go when you are ready to send a sweet Christmas or winter package/gift to someone. The possibilities are endless - BE CREATIVE and dive outside your box!!  I created stocking and snowflake tags - as an example.

Do your best and LET'S ROCK THIS SWAP!!!
