Default Postal: Christmas Card Kits Round 2: Due Nov. 17th 3+1

This swap is for Christmas Card kits. Card kits are a great way to use new products you don't have, play with images you might not have seen before, or just find a new combo of colors/items YOU may not have put together for your self. I LOVE card kits...they are wonderful. They are a great grab and go item to take to a crop, or put together a card in a pinch. If you've never done a card kit swap I encourage you to get your feet wet and come play with us. But be warned...you'll be swimming in the deep end in no time at all...they are very addicting!!

For this round of the swap I'm going to have different Categories of Kits by color combos. You pick what color you want to send, and then you pick what color you want to Receive. each color will have a color combo, you and add other colors to it, but these two colors need to be the main focus of your kit. Any image for this round works.

if you have questions please PM me or post.

Lastly...and MOST IMPORTANT...have fun!!



Now for the rest of the details:


Card Kits should include (at minimum) the following:
1. 4 to 6 images on 1/4 sheets of white cs with Copic black (Memento, Adirondack) inks or Waterproof black (Versafine, Pallette Noir); not colored in. Label your kits with ink type, please. Images must be perfectly stamped (no smudges or faded areas) and only stamped on one side of the cardstock please. You can either send all the same image or 2 different ones.
2. Four 6”x6” sheets of coordinating designer/patterned papers.
3. Twelve inches of ribbon, trim, cording or other ‘fiber’.
4. Six to Eight coordinating embellishments (brads, buttons, primas, gems, etc).
5. Optional additions include, punched shapes, coordinating sentiments, handmade charms, dry embossed cardstock, pictures of sample cards (from kit contents), card sketches, or anything else you can think of.


Quantity: 3+1 -You will not get one of your own back. the +1 is for me. (thank you very much)

Vendor Products: Any stamp from any company, but PLEASE use very good quality cardstock (PTI/Gina K/SU), No vendor restrictions on embellishments - Designer papers are encouraged. Please use Memento ink (or other copic friendly ink)

Due in my Hands BY: Saturday, November 17, 2012 - 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. Please don't be late, with christmas fast approaching I'd like to turn these around quickly.

Mailing instructions: Place swap cards kits 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. PLEASE SEND ONLY POSTAGE STAMPS, NO DATED STAMPS OR METERED MAIL--My Post Office will not take them. 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 outside the US, please include $5 US (or more for mutiple spots) to cover return postage, and I will return whatever is left to you.


Please post or PM me with any questions.

Please mail swaps to:

I love card kits and want to be the first one to sign up!!! I'll send blue and white and would like to receive purple and white. This a neat way to set up a swap - and we can all create what we want with the contents of the kit!

Good morning!! This sounds like a lot of fun!! It has been a while since I last swapped due to illness but I need to get back at it and this is perfect. Please put me down for 2 spots. For the first spot I will send brown and cream and would like to receive teal and silver. The second spot I will send blue and white and would like gold and cranberry in return.

Hey, Kristen--- sign me up for three spots. I will send 1.Red and green 2. Teal and silver 3. Gold and cranberry
I would like to receive 1.Teal and silver 2. Blue and white 3. Gold and cranberry
If you end up with too many requests for one set, you can substitute a red and green combo for one of mine. These are so much fun!

Kristyn what a great way to get new color combos to try! Going shopping at the LSS that is going out of business this week. I'll let you know which color combos after I see what I can snag at the store.

Monica has me thinking about this one. I'm swamped right now so not sure I can commit though but am bookmarking it in case I find I'm able to.
I'm not sure though that I understand... how will you make sure that you have enough of the color kits received if they aren't the same as those sent?

Susan, I'll try to answer for Kristyn because she had a rough day at work today. Her boss quit. Just walked out! Leaving Kristyn in a hot mess. Anyway, there are the same number of spots in each color group for sending and receiving. So all the spots get filled and it all works out. Unlike some other swaps, you can't add spots here and there. It all has to balance. lol (Can you tell Kristyn is an accountant?) Hope the way I explained it makes sense.

So jump on in and grab the colors you want before the groups fill up!

Lois, you are correct!

Susan-each spot is limited to 4 of each...so for this to all work out I need 28 spots filled and NO flakers!! Kits are pretty quick to put together. so if you think you can pull it off and you want a better choice of color get in now as spots are already filling up. also, if you can't decide on a color, then you can always pick ANYTHING GOES...this is for anyone who well either can't decide or doesn't have the colors that will work in the colors listed. maybe you have some great pink and green paper!

I am sorry to hear that your boss quit. I hope they either promote you or staff the position quickly. We have lost five people this year and they are not staffing the positions we just repriortise our workload every day. There is two of us left and one of us retires in twelve months and nine days and no it is not me.....

she wasn't really MY boss...but she was the boss over the sales department. and to be honest with you...I HAPPY she's gone!!! i'm doing the happy dance right now. that being said her just walking out did make my day, well horrible. I was to cover two locations today and with her just walking out, it made covering the other location very difficult..but I got it all done and didn't miss a deadline on anything important. so how to you do type the sound of my tounge sticking out and well you know that noise...to her!!! she tried to be a butthead, but she failed at that too!! ok know i'm just being ugly so I have to stop talking about this...I made a promise at work that if I could say anything nice, I would speak at all....I haven't spoke much that last couple of weeks. does typing count as speaking?!

anywhoo....Happy Day everyone...tomorrow should be better. they are bringing back the old manager and I just love her. we work great together, she's fun to be around and we both think the same...she's in charge, but when things really matter she knows I'm in charge. LOL

Hi Kristen,

I'd love to participate. Could I have three spots. I'd like to send: red/green, gold/cranberry and anything goes. I'd love to receive brown/cream, purple/white and blue/white.

I'll watch to see if I get a spot.

Thanks!

I make cards for them too. Also please give big hugs to your son or daughter from me...I think ever vet should be thanked with a great big hug...you should be very proud! Big hugs to you too..I know that time must have been hard for you too.

Thanks, Kristen.

It's my youngest son who serves in the PA Army National Guard. He spent almost a year in Iraq...it seemed like it lasted about 10 years. There's talk about members of his unit going to Afghanistan next year, but he's scheduled to get out before that happens. I just recently heard him speak of staying in, but now that he has two children, I don't think he'd be able to leave them.

I'll pass on your thanks to him. He always appreciates hearing it!

Kristyn and Tracy, I make cards too for Operation Write HOme - it's always great to have an outlet for your creative juices!! My daughter deploys for the 3rd time as a helicopter pilot in November. She is not married so that makes it easier, but with all these deployments I wonder if she will ever find a great guy? She finds someone and then has to leave. Can you tell I'm more concerned about her love life than she is??? Tracy, tell you son thanks for his service - it is hard to leave your kids behind!!

chris that cool that your daughters a helicopter pilot! I'm sure when she meets the right person he'll understand her "job"....if not and she loves what she does, then I guess he isnt' right for her....she'll settle down when she's ready mom...don't worry about that!! LOL Please tell you daughter thank you too and give her great big hugs. I have mad respect for those serving and all the one's left behind.

Good morning ladies!

I took the day off of work because I am helping with a political fund raiser tonight. Not going to say which side because I don't want to make any enemies! LOL I am and another woman are in charge of the food.

Going to get some stamping done this morning though!
Have a good day everyone!

Roxane, Good for you for being active in a campaign - no matter which it is. It's sad how many people don't even bother to vote.
