Round #1 Card Kit Swap - DUE DATE EXTENDED TO JULY 20th!!!
 
Card Kit Swap

Given that there are so many fabulous stamp & product companies out there and with the way the economy is, none of us can afford to buy every single stamp or product; so with that being said I hope you will join me in my Card Kit Swaps.

Okay, hereís how it works:

Choose which catagory you want to make card kits for and how many spots you want in each catagory. Basically in each kit, you are going to supply enough materials for your recipients to create 4 cards. Each SPOT requires 3+1 kits. (The +1 is for the hostess.)

However, EACH spot requires a different card kit.

The Catagories Are:

Cook Out's & Picnic's ~ (Yes, this includes Nature things!)

Animals ~ (Yes, this includes insects, reptiles, mammals, etc. too.)

Flowers

People / Kids ~ (Yes, this includes Baby's too.)

Masculine

Birthday

Holiday's ~ (Any holiday's)

Everything Else ~ (This catagory is open to imagination. It can include things like...Humorous, Anniversaries, Sympathy, Congradulations, Get Well, Hello, Just a Note, Miss You, Steampunk, Vintage, etc.)



Details:

Each person to sign up will make 3+1 Card Kits (+1 going to the hostess). You can sign up for, as many spots as you'd like, but please make sure the kits are different.

I would also like to encourage ALL swap participants who sign up to check in and post periodically on the thread. This helps to ensure that you are still involved in the swap, and helps build friendly repour with fellow SCS members.




The first 5 to sign up will be RAK'd in there return package.


Each Kit should contain the following:

Enough supplies for your recipient to make 4 cards. Please coordinate the contents of your kit.


4- Stamped images (all the same, per kit) with waterproof/Copic friendly ink and stamped on 1/4 sheet cardstock. Make sure they are stamped cleanly and sharp. Embossed images age encouraged!!!

(Also, check to make sure that your images comply with the SCS approved stamp companies.) Here is the link: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...A-t528974.html

4- Sentiments/sayings for your cards (Encouraged but OPTIONAL)

4- 1/4 sheets of coordinating paper or DSP, to make your card.

Enough Embellishments for each card: Ribbon (minimum of 6" per card), charms, hardware, gems, flowers, brads, buttons, glitter, flock, flower soft...you get the idea.

Last but not least--EXTRAS! These are things that make a good kit great: Some examples are: cardstock for card bases, envelopes, punched or die cut shapes, a recipe with dimensions of layerís & such, (extra paper, sentiments, embossed backgrounds, extra images, extra ribbon, bakers twine, etc.

Be creative!! Think of a kit you have gotten in a swap that made you say, "WOW"--that's a card kit!!!!

Place package each kit separately into a baggie. Label EACH bag with your SCS Name, REAL NAME, and the swap catagory!!!



Due Date:

In my hands by July 15th, 2013 and no later. However, if all of the packages are in my hands BEFORE the due date, I will mail them out early. NO LATE packages will be accepted! NO EXCEPTIONíS!!!

Let me know when your kit is postal and when you have received your kits. This is a must!




Mailing:

Place the kits inside a Ziploc bag with your SCS User Name, Real Name and the name of the swap on the outside of each kit!!! Please send a return address label and as much postage as it took to send them to me plus two extra postage stamps, if they aren't used, they will be returned to you. Priority Mail is a GREAT way to ship for swaps of this sort since itís only $5.60 for everything that fits in the envelope AND gives you tracking of your package for FREE!!!

Also, I would highly recommend sending in a sturdy (Priority type envelope) or a bubble envelope to protect your items from getting bent or damaged.

Please mail in an envelope large enough to accommodate larger pieces for the return trip to you.

When you are ready to mail your package, please send it to me at:

I am thinking about this swap---not really ready to pull it all together...but I am going to get a particular layout design and print that off and put it in the "kit"....

Also am thinking of making some card candy for the "kit" as well---I'm hoping that would be okay to include in a kit...vs. just throwing it in and letting each make it themselves...

AND---(too much?) was thinking about maybe a punch art desgn...but ? is should i put the punch art togehter??? might make it easier vs. all the directions for it....so I'm thinking that would be "card candy" as well right???

babbling on, I know, but I guess i'm trying to think it throughto make it easier on the card maker......

any thoughts???

Stamperamma 05-12-2013 02:24 AM

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY EVERYONE.

What wonderful ideas! If you don't want to make all the items, or write out all the directions, perhaps you could make 1 as a "guide" and then simply put the parts in for the other's to re-create them?

Craf-T-Bear 05-12-2013 03:34 PM

Happy Mother's Day Ladies!

Chary 05-14-2013 12:25 PM

Happy Tuesday, Everyone! As usual, my turtle finally got me here. On my lunch break right now and realized I had not yet signed up for this swap. I hope you're all doing GRRRREEAT!

Please put me down for birthday, animals, people/kids and masculine.

Christi, thanks for hosting! It is a tough job! I appreciate you doing this for all of us to play! :D

Stamperamma 05-15-2013 02:14 AM

stpinlight41 05-17-2013 05:38 AM

After seeing the INCREDIBLE work you do, Craf-T-Bear, I am going to take the plunge on the card kits! I haven't done one before, so I was nervous, but with summer coming up I will have more free time to get these done in the best way!

I will take a spot in Cookouts/Picnics, Birthdays, and Everything Else...so that is 3! I can't wait to get moving on them!

Welcome Lianna & Thank You for the lovely compliments regarding my cards! I'm so elated that you decided to join. If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask them.

Linda -- you are all signed up for the additional stop. Thank You!

JUST A NOTE:

I will be out of town on Saturday May 18! I'm attending the SplitCoast CNY Get-It-Together in Syracuse, NY. So, if you post tomorrow, I won't be able to respond or update until Sunday.

Hope everyone has a Happy & Crafty Weekend!

Crafty Huggles,

Hi Dea,

This is the SCS link for the event I attended:

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...d-t569316.html

Btw, How are you? I saw on the news the other night that your area had an earthquake. A few people in my area said that they felt it all the way down here.

Also, are you planning on attending the event in Hamburg, NY again this year in August? I believe it's August 25th. If so, you should let Becky know. She was beginning sign-up's at the event I attended in Syracuse.

Crafty Huggles,
Christi

Stamperamma 05-19-2013 01:57 AM

Happy Sunday everyone....

Dea

Stamperamma 05-19-2013 04:40 AM

The quake was minor here, the house shook, the jars rattled and I kept scrapbooking. Lol

The event sounds interesting, and intense, did you have fun? Buffalo is five almost six hours away, hmm will have to talk to hubby. We only have one car so if I take it he is stranded and we don't live close to anything. So he really is stranded.
