postal: Christmas Card Kit Swap ~ 3+1 ~ Due October 13th
 
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. Please let me know which group you want. Something in your kit must be from that category...example....the Santa Group. Your image can be santa, your paper can be santa, your embellishments can be santa. Basically your kit must have a santa theme. You can take as many spots as you want and any or all categories. If I do not have enough people in one group to swap out so nobody gets their own back, I will combine groups...so please be aware of this when you sign up...I don't want anyone disapointed or suprised. Next round I'll mixed things up a bit...

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 Date: Saturday, October 13, 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.

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.

OK--this is how you can win some prizes in your return envie:
1-- anyone who takes 3 or more spots

wow...nobody is very interested in the christmas angels/fairies spot...very interesting!!!

2CuteCats 08-22-2012 04:36 AM

Good morning everyone! I had a Fair Board meeting last night and didn't get home until 9:45 p.m. Ugh! I am going to probably can pickles this morning and then work on my aprons. Going to work at noon today.

Stamperamma 08-22-2012 12:07 PM

Krystyn my kits are all complete except for the embellishments. Does anyone have a good place to get embellishments from? The only stores we have available in Ottawa is Michaels.

Any online stores would be appreciated.

alicaz 08-22-2012 12:10 PM

I like to shop at onecrazystamper and Scrappin Great Deals - they are both in Ontario, so you should get your order fast

lois577 08-22-2012 05:40 PM

Two spots for me please! One in animals and one anything goes.

Dea, I like scrapbuck.com. They have a great selection of bling and the rolls of double sided tape for $1 are excellent quality. Shipping is free for orders over $20. Not sure if that applies to Canadian orders tho.

tryingtofindtime 08-22-2012 08:28 PM

Lois- you got it.

Dea-I like scrapbucks too. never been to the other stores, might have to check them out now too. ut-oh!

pat boisclair 08-23-2012 06:48 PM

Yo...Kristyn....I am excited to be under Angels and Fairies.

See you soon, yay!

2CuteCats 08-24-2012 04:19 AM

Happy Friday everyone! Last day of work for me before vacation!
:grin: :grin: :grin:

alicaz 08-24-2012 05:44 AM

Kristyn - maybe you should open another category - People

I know you are!! but I need some others to be excited with you, so I can swap back to you other angels and fairies!! I'm thinking lois needs to go shopping so she can join this group. LOL

I'm so excited to see you soon too!! I can't believe it's just around the corner!!

Alicaz-I was keeping the # of categories small for this round, that way next round we will have another group of categories...and then I may to a color themed round...mix it up a bit so it's not the same things each time.

so the "people" you have can go under the "anything goes" group or you could save them for next round. it's up to you.

if I don't get enough under the angles/fairies group it will be combined with another so that way nobody will get one of their own back.

I will be playing along too, just waiting till the last minute to see where I need to fill in if I have anyone drop in a group.

Stamperamma 08-25-2012 03:15 AM

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
