3 Attachment(s)
Name of Swap: "ATC Birthday Organizer

Description: This is an ATC swap, you'll be making 24 total.
Pick a month of the year, create 12 ATCs with the name of the month on them, your choice of theme (2.5"x3.5") sturdy backing no flimsy cardstock, 2 layer minimum, NVR, minimum 4 techniques/embellishments. ALSO you will make 12 ATC's (following above rules) with a picture of yourself on them including the date of your birthday and your wishlist and likes.

**I would like these to be in a vertical orientation so they can fit those mini library drawers you can buy from 7Gypsies etc etc**
Like this one: http://i1109.photobucket.com/albums/...siesdrawer.jpg


Quantity:24 total (12 + 12) see above descriptions (Hostess is participating)

Vendor products: NVR just make something you'd be happy to receive.

Include your Real Name & SCS Name when you package your ATC's so we know who to credit when bragging about you're awesome artwork.

Deadlines:
Sign-up no later than: June 16th
Ship by date:June 30th (please allow 10+ business days for shipping to Canada for those of you that don't often ship internationally sending earlier is ALWAYS better, just sayin')
Due IN Hand:July 19th

Packaging
Place swap items in a ziploc style bag for waterproof purposes. Write your real name, SCS name and swap name on a piece of paper or business card and include in the baggie for identification purposes.

Swap Return:
Place baggie of ATC's inside an envelope or box with a self-addressed label (If you were in my lablel swap then you'll have the perfect label already) for return mail purposes. The amount of postage sent should be the same amount that it takes to mail to the swap hostess. To insure that enough postage will cover the returned swap items, include additional postage which will be returned if not used.

**Please feel free to send American stamps as I can use them in my own swap returns and I will purchase Canadian stamps of equal value to use to return your package to you. I also accept American cash at par and will give American cash or stamps as change**

I will open more groups if we get enough interest.

LabradorDork 04-30-2013 04:23 PM

Thanks, Sabrina :)

artisticsole 05-01-2013 03:47 PM

Well I was in from the get-go!! I love this idea of having all our info for our swap partners in one spot...seems we're all swapping together anymore with the same people! :)

nsmac1 05-01-2013 05:40 PM

Well I originally thought of doing just the months but thought why not add that second element it'll be fun to have all of our scrappy girlfriends bdays and likes in one spot too. Oh and btw ladies you don't have to put the year you were born lol I'm just putting month and day. ;)

jn_leger 05-01-2013 05:57 PM

Oooh I love this idea, but I don't know if I can meet the deadline!!! Would you consider pushing it to the end of July? :)

CherryLime 05-01-2013 06:00 PM

Well, my b-day month is taken - so I will take October....you know me, I love halloweenie time.

I'll consider it but I wanted to get it done before school is done and families go away on holidays etc. I don't want a bunch of "oh I went away and i forgot"...or people dropping because they didn't anticipate the kids being done school and what not.

How cool! I'm in. Please put me down for December.
DH will just love that I am going to have him build me the drawer! Okay, well, he might not be too excited, but he will and he'll do a great job. :)

I'll add ya to the list, thanks for joining. I was thinking I might hit up my dads workshop and I saw lots of cute knobs at the hardware store. The retail version is way expensive.

nsmac1 05-02-2013 05:12 PM

I'm going to spend tomorrow evening cutting my bases for these and sketch out some ideas I think :)

Tlc.2scotties 05-02-2013 07:24 PM

Hi Sabrina,
I would LOVE to join! I will complete my other swaps this weekend and get started right away!
Can I have May?

klb1082 05-03-2013 03:00 AM

This one really has my imagination going nuts. Although I still plan on hounding DH for this, I found these drawers online for about $15 (US). Not sure how that translates to Canadian dollars, but it is affordable anyway.

Sabrina, I'm going to put open lines on the back of mine so birthdays for that month can be saved there and use it kind of like a Rolodex, but MUCH prettier.

Oh drat! It's time to head off to work. :( TGIF! Ya'll have a good day! :)

Sure you can do that I only require the front of the month ATC to be decorated. The idea I had was to make each person their own birthday ATC like the one we are making of ourselves and putting them behind in order of date like a Rolodex. But if you want to have blank spots on the back of your minty that's fine too like I said as long as front is decorated that's all that matters to me.

nsmac1 05-03-2013 07:47 AM

Only 6 more spots left :) feel free to share if you know of someone that likes ATC's.

terrie.mcnulty 05-03-2013 01:14 PM

Can I snatch up July please? Thanks!

CherryLime 05-03-2013 01:32 PM

I've been thinking about what pic of me to put on the 2nd card. I'm thinking about using one of my favorite birthday party pics from when i was little. Every year my mom would make theme cakes......fun stuff. I'm thinking 5 was a good year, Snoopy cake and homemade party crowns!!!

After re-reading the details, I see what you mean. My first set will have blank backs, and the second set will have MY birthday and stuff on the back and be decorated with a picture of "party" me on the front. Sorry I was not getting it the first time. :rolleyes:

All healed and doing well. Thanks for asking.

I like the idea of using a picture from years ago. Maybe I'll scan my senior photo from 1970. LOL Or my last picture with Santa from about the same time.

nsmac1 05-05-2013 05:13 PM

I spent all yesterday evening watching tv and cutting bases out of chipboard from empty cereal boxes and stuff. I ended up with 39 ATC's and liek 13 twinchies.

jn_leger 05-13-2013 06:39 PM

I had some time last night and played around with these. Not exactly what I had in mind, but I think I like them. I still need to add some finishing touches. I had a lot of fun playing with gesso and distress inks and trying some new techniques!

nsmac1 05-15-2013 03:47 PM

I hosted a Rolodex month swap last year, we did a cover of each month, then put file cards with names and addresses behind the month they turned out so great.

Jeziboo 05-16-2013 10:13 AM

Hi there, I'll take March. This one sounds like fun.

nsmac1 05-16-2013 10:53 AM

Thank you Jeziboo and Scraphead, we only need 1 more person. Anyone know of anyone interested in taking November?? Then we can close signup and get working on these little beauties. I already got mine sketched out, just gotta see if it translates to ATC. :)

monicas silcott 05-17-2013 05:01 PM

Okay, put me down for November. I see lots of Swapping Friends, I'd probably start feeling left out if I didn't join.
