Default NEW...WHATS OLD IS NEW AGAIN (lets recycle our store-bought cards) Due 9/9/12

This idea came to me after receiving a very cute quilted Motherís Day Card from my future MIL (maybe ). I thought, I could cut up the card and use parts as embellishments. I have hoarded several years of cards that I have loved throughout the years. Whether it is the image and/or the sentiment I think it would be fun to recreate our store-bought cards and make them better.

Here are the details:

Quantity: 5+1 (one is for the me, the hostess). I realize that most people do not have 5 identical store-bought cards so your cards do NOT need to be the same. Pick your favorite store-bought cards and redesign, recycle and recreate them into something fantastic for all of us to admire and share.

Deadline: In my hands by September 9, 2012. I will have them postal within 10 days of the due date. Cards not received by then will regrettably be returned to sender as not to hold up the swap.

Description requirement:
Full Size Card of any shape or design - 4 1/4 x 5 If your cards will not fit into a standard A2 envelope, please provide an envelope that will fit your cards.

NVR on embellishments Ė
Use a minimum of 2 layers & 2 embellishments
Designer paper is encouraged, but not required.
Please do your BEST work, as you wish to receive in return!!

No recipe required, but if you'd like to include one, please do so and add your real name and your SCS nick to it, others will appreciate it.
Please SIGN the back of your cards so the receivers can easily identify you and give the proper recognition you deserve.)

Sign up for as many spots as you like. Just how many store-bought cards have you saved throughout the years?

You must check in 2 weeks before the end date and let me know you are still in the swap. If you need to drop out that is fine life happens. You must also check in after swap and let us know you received your swap back.

Mailing instructions: Packaging and Swap Return: Put your cards in a zip lock bag with the swap name, your real name, and your SCS name. Please send a self addressed stamped envelope with the same postage as it took to send to me plus two extra stamps just in case needed. Thanks!

DO NOT send metered postage as we all know they only work for day of purchase!! If you would rather use Priority mail, please include one $5.15 priority stamp and a self-addressed priority label. I will provide priority envelope. If you are mailing from Canada please include $4 US to cover return postage, and I will return whatever is left to you.

All return mail will be sent via First Class unless you request (and provide for) otherwise. NO METERED POSTAGE PLEASE.

If you have any questions, please PM or post them. I am always open to suggestions.

As always, if you bring one of your SCS friends to the swap; let me know and I will include a prize for both of you. We will, of course, have Challenges throughout the swap for some awesome prizes. Those of you who have been in one of my swaps and have taken on a Challenge know that the prizes are pretty good

Come join us. Letís have some fun. We have the whole summer to complete great cards. Plus we are recycling; whatís better than that.

I have done this for a long time. I still have lots of cards to work with.

Like Linda said, the 5 cards would not be the same. right?

Hi Lori...I just read your invite..txs)
Soooo....I understand the need to create 5 diff cards for the obvious reason
been cited here...however the layout for each card is the same though....right??
At least that is what I am planning to do with mine...to have at least some similarity
and yes, please put me down for a spot...txs...

I usually donate all the cards' front received, to the Alzhaimer Centre where my Dad is....but I am sure I can find six cards to remake new.....

HI
Finally someone who types 're' instead of 'er'
I did not know about the Alzheimer Centre wanting card fronts. What do they do with them? That is a wonderful idea. I wonder if they do that down here????

I decided that since there is such a huge variety in store-bought cards that I will not ask for any uniformity but if you would like to do that; that would be wonderful.
Thank you for joining us

I am very excited about this swap! I have been checking through the store-bought cards I have saved.

This is going to be a lot of fun. I must finish a few other swaps first, but I am getting my supplies ready.

Hang in there girls, the troops are coming, they are slow walking from the beach. I really do think you are going to see a spark soon.
