Default Postal ~ Back to School Swap ~ Due October 1st ~ with Prizes!

I realize that school has just gotten out in many places,
but how about a swap with a theme of "Back to School'!

So, I am a former teacher and loved the back to school days. So--join me in a swap that is due on my birthday and make some cards that show School Spirit! Do you have some images of a school house, or bell, or books or a playground or school supplies or even some children? If so--that fits for the theme. It can be for any occasion or left blank--your choice! Sign up for as many spots as you'd like, but please, make a different design for each spot you take. AND--there will be Prizes!

Description: Full Size Card- 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Please use at least 2 layers & 1 embellishment! If you make a size different than this, please include an envie. You must have a stamped image on the front of your card--punch art is fine, but please not all Cricut images or other die cuts like that.

Quantity: 5+1 -You will not get one of your own back, so make an extra one for yourself!

Vendor Products: Any stamp from any company, but PLEASE use very good quality cardstock (PTI/Gina K/SU), No vendor restriction on embellishments - use as many embellishments as you like. Designer papers are encouraged, but not required.

Due Date: Wednesday, October 1st - I will mail them as soon as I receive all swaps! If I receive the swaps early, I will send them out early. Please post in the thread or send me a PM when your cards are postal.

Mailing instructions: Place swap cards in a large baggie for waterproof purposes. Write your real name, SCS name and swap name on a piece of paper or the baggie for identification purposes.

Swap Return: Please include self-addressed stamped envelope. The amount of postage on your SASE should be the same amount used to mail to hostess. Please include 2 additional stamps to insure enough postage to return swaps. Additional postage will be returned if not used. If you would rather use Priority mail, please include one $5.75 priority stamp and a self-addressed priority label. I will provide priority envelope. If sending outside the US--please send $8 US cash or stamps for one set of cards and $10 for two sets and even more money if you have three of more sets of cards to swap. I will return whatever is left to you.

OK--this is how you can win some prizes in your return envie:
1--Sign up for two or more spots.
2--Be the 25th or 50th name or 75th or maybe 100th to be added to the list
3--Other prizes will be added later during the chatter in this thread!

Please post or PM me with any questions.

Please mail swaps to:
Barb Deichl
School Swap
S25W30189 Jenna Lane
Waukesha, WI 53188-9136


I am excited to see all of your ideas and cards with this theme--keep my mailman busy!

Hi Barb. I only have a couple more years left with a grade schooler. Which means only a few more years of teacher gifts. I love this theme. I will take two spots please. Any chance I can talk you into posting these in a gallery as they come in. I would love to see them all....love ideas before our school starts (aug 13 - eek) thanks and have a great summer.

I noticed Amy is a teacher and I'm a teacher. Would you be interested in getting thank you cards that teachers would normally give to students? I'm forever making these.

Thanks for joining us Amy. I will try to post the cards in the gallery--but to be honest, I am not sure many will be here by August 13th.

Are you asking me if that is OK to make that type of card for the swap? If so, yes. Let me know if you want to join us.

Good Morning--Happy Wednesday and Hump Day!

It is raining again today and a storm is headed our way. I have a trailer full of branches to unload, but I am staying put right now to see what happens with the weather. Stamp class was fun yesterday and we made 5 cute cards. I also completed my hostess order and was able to get lots of free stuff and 3 half-price items--YAY!!!!!

I hope you have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Cnristine, if you are talking about me, I need to clarify, I am not a teacher. I just love my boys 's teachers well.

Good Morning. I am headed to a stamper's estate sale and she was a bit of a hoarder, so there is a ton of stuff. I have seen pictures and it is amazing how much stuff she had. Then a bit of stamping this afternoon I hope. We have a friend come tonight to stay with us for two nights, so I may not be back here until Saturday night. I hope you have a great couple of days!
