Hello lovely people Nik the Booksmith is an awesome inspiring youtuber and junk journal creator has a you tube video about a swap item called Scrap Sampler Booklets. I absolutely love the idea and am excited to begin the third swap like this.


So dig out your scrap bins and boxes and lets start creating some scrap sampler booklets. The theme for this scrap booklet is going to be Winter/Christmas. Since we are doing lots of Christmas and Winter themed swaps there has got to be some leftovers in your stash that will work!!

Each booklet must contain at least 15 scraps of varying sizes and be a variety of types from scrap book paper scraps, old book pages to tea/coffee dyed papers wrapping paper, tissue and magazine scraps that suit the theme.

The booklet is to be made from a folder and must be the size of a 4×6 inch post card.

The booklet must be bound with string or yarn like Nik does in her youtube video or like she suggested with staples or sewn.

Each participant will have two partners.

Decorate the front and please send a little note to your partners with the swap name and a little blurb about the scrap book samples and their origins 😄

That all! If you feel like i have missed something or suggestion or a correction is need please pm me so i can address this.

I will be skipping this one as I have little use for christmas paper in january, I am sorry.

I really enjoyed the first swap, but I've been making the sampler booklets since, and I really enjoy putting other scraps in like tissue paper, luxury gift wrap and patterned pages from Flow magazine.

Do you think you'll be hosting one allowing these types of paper any time soon? Or would you rather have someone else do that? :)

@marliese hey, thanks for mentioning that! I will change the comment so that it is a more relaxed format.

Thanks for 'loosening' the description, I am in! It would be great if you could change the dates a bit but otherwise I'll try to stick to winter paper mostly... and go easy on the Santa stuff :)

I've been watching this swap but the sending deadline is too soon for me sad face as I was too busy to pre-prepare my samplers. Even behind on my season's greetings! Hopefully I'll be able to join the next one. Have fun!
