Heart FINISHED:Christmas Card kit swap (Canada) - Prizes for everyone

Hello ladies (and gents too)!
I know it's only August, but stamp companies are already starting with Christmas stamps so I thought why not start early... You'll need to get the kits soon enough to get your cards done.
AND it's also your chance to show of your new Christmas stamps/papers or use up your old goodies so you'll have a valid excuse to hit the stores.

You send 4 card kits and receive 4 different ones back. No need for the +1 as I'll be playing too.

Due date for this swap is September 30, I'll swap and mail out your kits within a week. There is plenty of time, so please plan ahead and mail on time. I'm in Canada, US & International swappers are welcome too, just make sure you mail on time.

So what should each kit contain:
1. 2-3 stamped images---please use Copic-friendly ink and leave room for cropping.
2. Two 6"x6" pieces of DP
3. Minimum of 12 inches of ribbon, cord, fiber, trim, etc.
4. Set of embellishments: Examples are brads, eyelets, charms, hardware, gems, flowers, etc.
5. The wow factor!!! (Optional) Something that make a good kit great - punched or die cut shapes, punched borders, picture of a finished card using the supplies, extra paper (images, ribbon, or embellies) etc.

Please place each kit in a ziploc baggie and mark it with your SCS name. Please include a self addressed return envelope with either Canadian postage stamps or money to cover the return postage.
Feel free to sign up for more spots, just make a different set of kits for each of them.
When you are ready, PM me and I'll send you my address.

I hope I have explained this well. If you have any questions please let me know!!! PM or post to this thread to sign up.

Good morning everyone

I hope this weekend is pain free and enjoyable for everyone. I am off to the cottage for the week. Hubby will join me for today and he will return home tomorrow. He hates the cottage. One day of showering in lake water is enough for him. I on the other hand love the cottage and being at the lake. Our friends own this cottage and loan it to me for a week every year. I have been doing this since before hubby and I met and it is something i really love and am not willing to give up. I spend my week walking, making cards, swimming, cooking over an open fire when weather permits, there is a stove and fridge I just like cooking on an open fire. I have no Internet so I will be off line for the rest of the week. Take care. Dea

Dea-that sounds like my cup of tea! I love it!! I wouldn't give it up either, but fortunately my DH loves that kind of stuff too...not the card making but everything else.

one question ladies - did any of you start with the kits already? I want to change a rules a bit, but wouldn't want to mess it up for you if you have your kits done already.

What I want to do is change it from 4+1 kits to only 4 as I'll be playing too, so I won't need the extra kit.

I will not cancel the swap even if we don't have any more players, don't worry you'll get a variety of kits back, even if I have to make them myself

why not make it 3+1. then you only need to cut up one 12x12 sheet, with no left overs. I'd be fine with getting 3 back and you keeping one. just a thought or if you want just 4 with no plus one, that's fine too. If we only need to do four kits total, I'd take another spot. that should help. I haven't been able to decide what paper I'm cutting up to have leftovers of. not having leftover, will be easier! i will work on my kits this week. so please post what you decide. thanks.
