CAMPING IN THE FOREST - Cards - Heading Back to Swappers
FYI - I didn't know when I opened this swap that I would be going to a nationwide certification training in July. EEK! Yep, I'm out of state right now - just as this swap is due. I'm sorry! However, my husband is home and he is keeping the packages that arrive safe. I will return no earlier than July 23, so I apologize for the delay. I will update packages received at that time and will get this swap swapped out and mailed back to you ASAP. I'm truly sorry for this inconvenience to all the wonderful Forest Friends!
It's time for a new Forest Swap! EVERYONE is WELCOME to join!!!
We are a chatty group - those of us in the forest together. We refer to one another as Forest Friends and would love for you to become a Forest Friend, too! As each swap winds down, a new one takes form. After all, we have to have somewhere to hang out and chat. LOL!
Here are the details!
Elke came up with a great idea for this one…
Camping in the Forest
Cards need to be made of good quality cardstock (so the card can stand alone) and include a minimum of two layers and one embellishment. Full size cards are 4 1/4 X 5 1/2". If you choose to create a size other than that, please include envelopes for each of the cards. Thank you! This is a 5 + 1 Swap, which means you send 6 cards, the Ranger – that’s me – keeps one for being a fun hostess, and you get 5 back. Please use at least two layers of quality cardstock and include at least one embellishment on your cards.
This swap is due in my hands on or before July 16, 2014 .
Sooooooooo… are we ready to get this swap started???
Steps to take in the CAMPING IN THE FOREST Swap:
Step One Join – take a spot today! (or two or three, but each spot needs to be a different design). You will not get one of your own items, so be sure to make an extra for yourself.
Step Two Germinate an idea for your card. To germinate is defined as to sprout; bud; develop. There is NVR on these items other than using good quality cardstock for the base.
Step Three Expand your idea. Cards need to have at least two layers and at least one embellishment. The use of designer paper is encouraged, but not required.
Once your cards are mature (finished) place them in a ziplock bag (to protect them as they travel to my house through spring showers and summer thunderstorms). Include your real name, your SCS name, and the name of the swap for identification purposes.
Step Five Enlarge your forest by mailing your projects to me along with a self-addressed stamped envelope. PLEASE include a couple of extra stamps, just in case they are needed. I'll return any postage that is not used.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE mail your cards on time!!! We seem to have gotten a bit lax about that.
And don’t forget to include the postage needed to return the cards to you. It seems someone (or someones ) forget to do that every swap I hostess.
Are you ready to
CAMP in the FOREST?
A few last thoughts…
… PM me when you’re ready to ship and I will give you my address.
… Hang out with the FOREST FRIENDS. There will be lots and LOTS of chatting, fun quotes, contests, prizes, the sharing of recipes, maybe even a joke or two. You never know what to expect in the forest.
... Have fun!
To get the fun started, I've chosen 3 mystery numbers. The swappers who sign up for those spots will each win a prize!!! BUT I'm not telling what the numbers are until someone lands on the spot.
AND of course Elke will be getting a PRIZE (if she joins), since she gave us the idea for a CAMPING IN THE FOREST Swap.
Now… from the words of Forrest Gump, “That’s all I have to say about that.”
Gael is right....I'm also usually the second to last person to know about these swaps...so for me to be SECOND OMG I'm up to speed for the moment...AND I'm on the first page...will wonders NEVER cease?
put me down for 3 spots....yes that is crazy...but I have all of these campy stamps that need to come out of the closet and see the light of the FOREST
