Swap Due Date NOVEMBER 10, 2008
Sign up by SEPTEMBER 1. 2008 - Please, firm commitments only
Number of pages 12 for 12 4x4 pages
Number of participants 12


WE NOW HAVE 12 PLAYERS AND WE ARE ROCKIN'


Rock & Roll Chunky Book

I had this satiny white cardstock, some pretty white flower stickers and some really awesome white fibers, so I wanted to put together a white chunky page. After I got started, it looked kinda weddingy and suddenly I was inspired to make a WHITE WEDDING page. Then it hit me that we should have a whole book of pages to honor some of the great rock & roll legends, so Im hosting my third chunky book swap.

My daughter, Katybean, who just finished a scrapbook of her Bon Jovi concerts is going to participate in this chunky and so we need 10 more participants to sign up.

So make 12 4 X 4 pages with the song title and artist name on the front with your art related to the song and on the back put the song title again along with some of the lyrics and your contact info. Please include your USER NAME (required) and any contact info you wish, i.e. email, address, etc. (optional)

You can make all your pages alike or all different or mix it up. Use your imagination and do your best work. We want these books to really rock!

Do not send an envelope, as I will provide packaging for the returns. Please include $8.00 to cover binding supplies and return postage and a large return address label.

Embellish as you wish, but please keep anything thick and all embellishments on the right half of the page as the left half has to fit underneath the punch guide of the Rubicoil binding machine to prevent me having to punch a bunch of pages by hand. Please remember that beads across the bottom or brads and buttons on the left side mean that your pages will have to be hand punched. These will be spiral bound and I will make a front and back cover for each book.

When you send me your pages, please do not send them registered mail as I won't be home to sign for them and that will cause your pages to be delayed at the post office until I can pick them up.

I will send a PM with my address to all participants when all the slots are full.

Could I join? I've never made chunky pages before but I would really like to give it a try...

I've added you to the list Tweexcore Undergound. If you need any examples for inspiration, just look in the gallery.

08-17-2008, 01:52 AM
Thanks for adding me!
Actually I was wondering. When you wrote we could make all the pages alike or all different, does that mean we should create different pages based on the same song, or we can do all different songs from different bands?

Hey Tweexcore! I believe what our fair hostess means is that we can either make 12 pages with different designs (either the same song or different songs, your choice) or make 12 handmade copies of the same page. Since we all will be getting books back with pages from 12 different artists and no multiples, we don't need the time to design 12 different pages.

I'm rather grateful for this, as designing one page takes me for friggin-ever.

Goodmorningstarshine is right. It's really your choice what you want to do with your pages. If you have a favorite band, you can make all the pages using that band and a favorite song, you can use a diffferent song on each page, you can use a different band on each page, or you can do half and half. It's entirely up to you. I do want some of the words to the song on the back. It doesn't have to be many, just so we get part of it. Also the name of the band and name of the song. Also be sure you put your user name and any contact info you want to share on the back. This will be fun so just enjoy yourself!

theatrelion
08-17-2008, 04:43 PM
Woot! Thanks for adding me! I've already got some songs picked out... I must admit there is a soft spot in my heart for the 80's hair bands...

heymaggie
08-17-2008, 10:08 PM
Yay! I hope we get a wide variety of different pages for this book. I just know it's going to be the best one yet!

heymaggie
08-19-2008, 07:37 PM
Well since we have a variety of options on how to do this, I decided on 6 different songs with which I will make 2 handmade copies of each.

I've already made one, and one similar to it (same thing but a little neater lol)
Anyway, here it is...

That is awsome! You are really rockin'! Can't wait to see them all and in person!

Oh my! I've got to get busy on mine. I am having spinal surgery and carpal tunnel surgery on Oct. 31st, (having my throat and wrist cut on Halloween, lol), so I'm trying to get all my swaps made before then. I may not be able to bind these books until late November. I don't really know yet how long it will take for my wrist to get well so I can use both hands.

I promise I will have pages for you!

stormarela
10-24-2008, 02:56 PM
WOW, all I can saw is wow, what great ideas and pages are posted. I am so inspired. I have had some trouble picking which band, which song to do, but finally, I think I'm going to do Queen, We Will Rock You. (I've changed my mind so many times, its silly.)

Maggie, I hope the surgery goes well with a quick recovery time. Don't worry about how long it takes to finish the books, they are a great surprise when they show up in the mail box. I love my fish and zodiac books!

All these pages are so rockin'! Thanks to you all for doing such amazing work! Friday I received Tweexcore Underground's fantastic pages. And don't worry, I will scan them for you and you can grab copies for your files. I have done 3 more, Pink Floyd: The Lunatic from Dark Side of the Moon, and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts' I Love Rock 'n' Roll. Tweex, I gotta go to work but will give you iTrader and update the list when I get home today. (The computer hog was here all weekend and I never got a chance. She also forgot her cell phone so hogged my cell all weekend too.) But that's what Nanas are for, right?

Well, fellow rockers, I went to the hospital on Friday and was all ready to get put to sleep, but the guy that was going to put me to sleep said I had signs of breathing difficulty and some questionable readings on my ekg so had to put the surgery off. I spent all this week having heart tests and haven't got the results of them yet. Guess I won't have the surgery till after the new year now. I used up half the time off work I had left for the tests and that doesn't give me enough recovery time this year. I'm feeling fine and will be working on the books as scheduled, so as soon as the pages are all in I will bind them and get them back out to you!

Hugs to all of you!

I still haven't heard anything from rockstarsgirl. Hope everything is ok with her. I guess we will only have 10 pages in our books. I will send the extra pages back to you with the book. Maybe you can trade them privately. (Those who made a bunch of different ones, if you want to, can have extra pages put in your book; your own or someone else's. Just let me know.)

I got it!!! It's wonderful! Really made my very crappy Monday worthwhile. Thank you everybody! My internet is being really hazy lately, so I'll be doing reps/iTraders in little bits...since it only seems to let me stay connected a couple minutes at a time. Just wanted to let you know I got it and I *LOVE* it! Thank you thank you thank you! :wubclub:
