oct shoebox swap
October 12, 2013 - Shoebox Swap in Aberdeen, MD (Harford County)
We (Andrea & Lisa) are hosting another shoebox swap on Saturday, October 12, 2013 from 9:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., at: (please read the entire description)
University Center Northeast Maryland (Heat Center) (1st Floor)
1201 Technology Drive, Aberdeen, Maryland 21001
at Aberdeen Exit 85W off of I95 and is approximately 35 minutes north of Baltimore and 60 minutes from Philadelphia.
We are asking that you stay for the entire time of the swap.
The theme is Christmas/Holiday Season. We do require that all products must be made using Stampin' Up stamps, cardstock, inks, etc. Stamps and colors can either be current or retired.
There is room for 31 people (over 18 years of age please) to attend with each person bringing a shoebox swap for 30 people to make cards. There is a $21 non-refundable charge per person for room rental, expenses, and box lunch which will be collected before the day of the swap. All monies need to be in by Friday, October 4, 2013. If money is not received by this time, the waiting list will be opened up. Everyone who signs up must have a SCS ID to make this fair for everyone attending.
All cards are to be full cards. Please bring enough supplies for everyone to make your card including all cardstock, stamps, inks, embellishments, tools, etc., along with your own adhesive and scissors to use on all the projects we make. Please make sure all of your supplies are labeled with either your name or initials, so we all go home with the stuff we brought. We'd like each person to have a sample and typed instructions in their box telling how to make your card, and also have their swaps in baggies or envelopes containing everything each person needs to do your card. This really helps make the swap go more smoothly.
We will have a catered lunch. You need to select what type of sandwich and beverage you would like. Here is what is in the boxed lunch:
Sandwich (select from: turkey, ham, chicken salad, tuna salad, and vegetarian)
soda (diet, non-diet not sure if pepsi or coke)
Let me know if there are any food allergies.
There are vending machines on site and restaurants within the area if you would like to dine after the swap.
There will be several door prizes throughout the day. And we are asking for card donations which will be used for our local cancer center. These can be old swap cards, card fronts, or even one of the cards you are doing for the swap.
To sum up what you’ll need to bring for the shoebox swap: shoebox supplies, adhesive, scissors, paper cutters and any other supply needed to make cards. Card donations for the local cancer center. I am attaching a registration form that should be sent to me along with the $21 non-refundable charge. Send me your choice of sandwich and beverage.
Let us know if you have any questions.
