ITS BACK!!!!!!!!

So, today is the day that I can tell you that Crafting Ireland magazine and Scrapzville are teaming up to relaunch The Scrapzville Swap!!!!!!!

Can you tell i'm excited??

Would you like to swap a mini album with another crafter and receive one in return? yes? then read on!

All of the details are also listed in the magazine, hop over - Issue 9 is out today and indulge yourself in some seriously good tutorials, product reviews and inspiration.

Ok, what do I have to tell you? well, the rules are as follows:

The album should be no bigger than 6"x6"

It should have at least 6 pages including the front and back covers.

Please remember that your swap partner (probably) doesn't know you and the work you send will be their first impression of you - so make sure that you are proud of your work and would be happy to receive something similar.

Please do not sign up for this swap unless you can complete the swap, your partner may be overseas and you are responsible for postage fees.

You must have an email address to enter - this means you can contact your swap partner to discuss favourite colours etc.

Sometimes people send extra goodies with an album, this is a lovely gesture but NOT compulsory, therefore it is up to you. Please do not expect to receive extras!

The last and most important rule is.... Enjoy creating!!

To join the swap you will need to email your details to me at;

How to join in:

Issue 9 Swap Theme—Summer Colours

Sign up deadline—Sunday the 22nd April by 1pm GMT. You must have emailed Felicia your details by this date and time to be included in the swap.

Swap partners announced—Monday the 23rd April. You will be told who your swap partner is, and given their email address so that you can get in contact to exchange postal addresses, style preference, etc

Albums must be in the post by— Monday the 21st May (or sooner). Try to get the album posted as soon as you can so that your partner can hopefully receive it before the next swap is announced!

The swap is open to everyone, no matter where you live.

When you have finished your album consider taking a photo of it before posting it, and email this photo to me. We will then publish these photos along side the next swap announcement. We will publish them without names just in case your partner has not yet received your album—we wouldn't want to ruin the surprise!!

We will set up an Inlinks on our blog where you can post up your album details once your partner had confirmed they have received it. This way we can all see the fantastic work being swapped!

Feel free to leave a comment on this post with any questions you might have, but if you are signing up please do it with the email address (i'd hate to miss someone out!)

There is a swap button on the right side of this blog - take it away, its there for you to use!
I look forward to seeing all you crafty goodness ladies,

Felicia xx


  1. Great news! Delighted the swap is back. It will be great to get crafting again.

  2. Ok, so I was partly right!!
    I thought it was something to do with Crafting Ireland!!
    Although I thought it was that you were going to do a Ustream class for them!!! LOL!!
    There's an idea for you!!! :-)
    Great news that the swap is back.
    I have only ever done 1 swap and it was through your swap.
    The toilet roll mini.
    I really enjoyed that!!
    Good luck with everything!! :-)
    Inky Hugs,

  3. Hi Felicia. actually I am here to say, that yoga is ace and you should definately give it a go! It is important to like the teacher though, so if it doesn't get you first go, then maybe you just need another teacher. Oh and any teacher that pushes you to go further than you can, is someone to stay away from. Just go to your limit! Don't do any thing that hurts and keep breathing! xx

  4. Hi Felicia! How exciting that you are running your Mini Album swaps again. I have recently made two minis (waiting to add to my blog) so may have to join you again at some point :) Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog, I am currently addicted to Smash books and everything about them :)
    They can be hard to get hold of, but managed to get mine from Oyster Stamps, at the best price I have seeen anyway else.
    £5.99 for the mini size, £10 for the regular, and £16 for the new Big Smash book :)
    I have also joined a group on FB called SMASH*UK but lots of people post from all around the world, it's great fun!

    Good luck with your swap Felicia, I hope lots of people sign up, I know it can be so much fun, and may join you again soon.

    Suzie xxx :)

    PS. Just a thought, have you ever thought of doing a Mini Album Kit swap?
