    If you are interested in doing the Lilypad Hybrid Happy Mail Swap for Summer post here! There is no set theme or requirement for what to send. You and your partner can discuss what you would like to do or you chose "anything goes" meaning your partner can make anything they wish for you. See this thread for ideas on pocket letters, flip books, mini books, stuffed envelopes, etc.

    We'll do this Quarterly - each season, so you have 3 whole months to craft your happy mail. This Summer swap will run from July 1 2021 - September 30, 2021.


    Summer Partner Assignments:
    @jenn mccabe and @Karen
    @Annsofie and @MishSpar
    @FarrahJobling and @michele hillam
    @Sokee and Mei (pm @BevG)
    @BevG and @Claire Grantham
    @lcpereyra and @ArmyGrl

    I have a Pinterest Board for ideas regarding what to send. Some suggestions: pocket letters, flip books, mini books, envelope style flip books, loaded embroidery hoops, loaded bags ... so many possibilities and they are all an adorable way to send your partner a little love and happy through the mail! Youtube is filled with tutorials on how to make these items. The original post for our previous Lilypad Letters Swap is full of information specific to Pocket Letters and can be found HERE. If you are interested in doing the pocket letter and want a digital template to help get the sizes correct for printing @Rikki created one for Mirjam's blog with a little tutorial - check it out here.


    Some helpful hints/tips to get started:
    1. PM your partner to get your swap going. Please do this right away at the beginning of the month. From there you can exchange emails or continue to exchange info via the PM/Conversation feature through the Lilypad site.
    2. Only share your personal info/address via PM/email.
    3. You have until the end of September to get your happy mail sent out to your partner.
    4. Please remember to take a photo before you send your happy mail out, but wait until you hear back from your partner (that they received it) to post the photo so you don’t spoil their Happy Mail surprise!
    5. Remember to use at least 75% TLP if using digi supplies.
    6. When you receive your letter, PM/email your partner to confirm you received it.
    7. Share what you made for our Summer Swap here in this thread (and in the gallery if it meets the TLP product requirement) so we can oooh and ahhhh over your creations!
    Have FUN!!!!

    Ok, so I’ve been a slow turtle with getting my spring one done and off to Dalis but I’ve been printing things this week and creating with my real life supplies and hope to mail it next week. And I’m loving being creative again so I’m in for the summer round!

    I am looking forward to the autumn one. I can't cope with glue and bits at the moment sorry.
    But I really did enjoy the spring one. Have fun everyone .

    Sign me up! Karen sent me a wonderful package back in March - thus I have some TLP hybrid elements. It is time for me to dig in and create away!

    Hey Jenn....if you end up with an uneven # and you don't have another partner to pare them with (even a few weeks in), I would be happy to do 2 if needed. I love experimenting with flip books!
