12 Days of Christmas - SIGN UPS OPEN!


THEME: "Twelve Days of Christmas" 
PALETTE: Your choice

**At least 12 Participants NEEDED!!**

Christmas is just around the corner and is a very popular time for freebies! This month we are doing something different and to make it work I need AT LEAST 12 participants please! The last few trains have bordered on around 10 participants but we need at least 12 please!

How this train will work is that each day beginning 1st December, a new "part" of the blog train will be released. You do not need to make a full kit if you don't wish, but a few elements, a script, some papers, a mini kit, CU or PU - whatever you wish. And each day one of these will be released ON THE DESIGNER'S BLOG ready for download, to make up the 12 days of Christmas - hence why I need at least 12 participants.

Now, I have set up the database slightly different, and you have the option of choosing which part in the train you will take (1 - 12). If the number you wish has already been taken, please choose another! Once we reach all 12, extra participants may choose the number of their choice from 1 - 12 again. Only once we reach 12 places will we start the 12 again. This will ensure all spots are taken and therefore some parts may be released on the same day together. Does that make sense? lol

Let's make this an awesome and exciting train for Christmas. We look forward to your parts!

You may make Tagger, Full Size, CU, QP's whatever you like - just be sure to let your visitors know what your items are!  Please state on your previews whether they are FULL SIZE or TAGGER and CU or PU. *s*
You may call your kit/items anything you wish just so long as it fits into the theme.

Scrap Kits: 3 papers and 12 elements MINIMUM
Quickpages: 4 MINIMUM
NO PAPER PACKS (unless they are CU)
CU: 4 papers/overlays/elements MINIMUM (unless a script or action then 1 of is permitted)

We are trying to make our train one our visitors enjoy riding on, and some become disheartened to find a freebie very minimal. So we would like to offer them something to keep them coming back! And freebies are advertising for our PTU work.

NOTE: You have to be very careful with what you call things or use for supplies due to copyrights. You may NOT name your kits the same as that of a TV, book or movie etc.

To take part you just need to stop over and join the group to be ready *s*

to fill out the database for the December participants (already in Database). I use this list for the Blog Roll and if your name is not on the list or preview in Photobucket you will not be included.


You must upload your preview to the December Photobucket album created for the train at when it is completed.

1. Log in to
Log In details on Yahoo Group
2. Select December 2012 album, and click UPLOAD NOW (green button located at the top);
3. Click and then SELECT PHOTOS AND VIDEOS button to browse and locate your preview on your computer and upload;
4. On the next page PLEASE PUT YOUR NAME (so I know whose preview is whose) in the title section;
5. Click SAVE AND CONTINUE TO ALBUM...and you're done!

Previews MUST be uploaded to the Photobucket album by no later than 29th November
Train departs Saturday 1st December - Midnight Australian EST
(but please bear in mind that departure times may differ from others)

Train will run for the duration of the month after which on the 1st of the following month your part is yours to do what you wish with - put it up for sale or keep it as a freebie.

Happy journeying with the Brat Pack!
