**Closed and receiving-- 5+1 B-day card front swap w/prizes due Feb 29**
I always seem to run out of birthday cards! Do you?! Well, here is our chance to get a better "assortment" of cards. I can produce 6 of the same thing pretty easily, but to come up with 6 different ones can be tough some days, especially if I NEED them right away.
DESCRIPTION: This swap is for regular card fronts. You need only make the fronts (helps us save on cardstock), so they would be 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches and they can later be used on your own white cs to also save you money. (No envelope is required.)
SU cs base is REQUIRED.
NVR (no vendor requirements) on stamps, other layers, patterned paper or embellishments. Please your best judgment in creating a nice quality card front! All card fronts must have at least TWO layers of good quality card stock and ONE embellishment! A card recipe , which lets us know what stamp sets, papers, ink, and embellishments you used would be a great addition, too. This helps any of the SU demos and helpful when CASE-ing!
DO YOUR BEST, BE PROUD, and sign, stamp, or place a sticker on the back of your creation with your SCS name and real name so we can thank you or comment on your beautiful work.
QUANTITY: 5+1. You will send in 6 and get 5 back. The +1 is for the hostess. You will NOT get one of your own back so please make an extra for yourself to keep. If you choose to join 2 spots, that is okay, but please make 2 different cards to swap.
DUE DATE: The card fronts are due in my hands by Feb 29th!! They will be swapped and back in the mail by March 3rd at the latest. Any late card fronts will be returned and not swapped, so please try to get them to me by the due date to swap with us.
PRIZES: I will be giving a small prize for the top 3 best card fronts--as judged by me, family, and friends--(not sure yet what that will be, but it will definitely be something we can use on our cards or scrapbook pages).
** Mail to: Kelly Little, 60 Temple Hill Road, Hughesville, PA 17737.
**Place swap items in a big Ziploc baggie (for waterproofing purposes) along with a piece of paper or sticker listing your real name, your SCS name, the swap name, and your email address along with 2 extra stamps to ensure that there is enough postage (this is in case someone uses embellishments, etc, and their card is thicker than yours). I will return the stamps if they are not needed. Place your baggie inside a SASE with the same amount of postage that it takes to mail the swap to the hostess.
DO NOT use metered postage because they are only good for the day purchased.
If you prefer Priority mail, then place the Ziploc baggie in a Priority envelope along with one $4.60 priority postage stamp and be sure to include your address somewhere in the package (preferably on the piece of paper mentioned above). I will provide the return priority envelope fpr you.
I would like to also suggest bubble mailers to keep your precious work safe from harm. I have seen embellishments torn off, the puffy paints smooshed, etc.
I have broken this down into 3 different groups to try and organize it a bit. If we do not get enough in all 3 groups, I will combine them, so you would get an assortment instead of getting your own back due to lack of participation.
hey! I haven't swapped with you in awhile! I would love to join this one. Sign me up for a feminine spot. If there ends up being enough people I may sign up for another one. We will have to see on that though. Thanks for hosting.
Okay Kelly... I love your swaps...and this is a cool idea... but have to put it in my potential for right now... I have a boat load of Feb and March I need to finish before signing up for more...
Thanks so much for thinking of me!!!
To anyone new to my swaps:
Okay, I just wanted to let you all know that when I host a swap, I show sneak peeks of the ATCs as I receive them OR if you girls would like you can show off your creations before you mail them. Just put a link here for your picture in your gallery so we can all see. Some ladies don't use a gallery, and so I will show them in mine in my swaps album.
Please Note: If someone does not want to see the cards, and they want to be surprised when they receive them, don't click on the links to see the sneak peeks.
Finally got a prototype I am happy with and my Photoshop starts acting up. Ah well, this one is straight from the camera for ya. No watermark or fancy stuff Hope you like it. I think this is fitting for most boys.
I received an email from a good friend today who said she saw my info on my blog about the swap. Added Marcie M to the list for feminine cards. I still need at least one for Masculine and one for Children's cards to make them complete groups . . . do I have any takers out there?!
