POSTAL ~GET READY FOR THE HOLIDAYS CAS Halloween, Thanksgiving, Xmas 10-1
 
Get ready for the holidays with a clean and simple card swap!

The holidays will soon be approaching and there's no time like the present to get started on those holiday cards. I usually host clean & simple card swaps and so this will also be a CAS card swap. I will have three groups and you can sign up for as many spots at you would like, but please make a different card for each spot. Your cards aren't due until Oct 1st so you have penlty of time to get them done and you will have them back in time to use them for Halloween.



Halloween, Thanksgiving/Fall, Christmas


If this is your first time swapping, this would be a great swap to jump right in! Feel free to post any questions in the thread and myself or the other ladies would be more than happy to help you. (The ladies here are so wonderful and friendly so don't be afraid).

Please keep in mind that a CAS card should have fewer layers (sometimes just a card base) and lots of open space resulting in a clean, simple design. This is not to say that your card can not have layers or embellishments, but just remember to limit them. Any techniques that you use should be easy or simple (no advanced techniques). Your cards should be quick and easy to make. Please keep your cards clean and simple!



---There are lots of CAS cards in the gallery (especially with the weekly CAS challenges). Here is the link to the CAS cards here on splitcoast. There should be some great CAS cards here to get you started:

CAS - Homemade Cards, Rubber Stamp Art, & Paper Crafts - Splitcoaststampers.com

If you would like to join my swap you need to post a message in the thread. If anyone has any questions you can send me a pm (or post a message for me in the thread) and I will be sure to answer you as soon as I can.

I hope no one minds, but I'd like to request that swappers are from the US only. It's hard for me with three kids to get to the post office and I usually try to mail my swap packages from my home. Also, since I am a SU demonstrator I will most likely be giving out SU prizes and in keeping with SU regulations, I am not allowed to ship SU merchandise outside of the US. If you have a US address you can use that would be acceptable (I've had swappers do that in the past). Thanks for your understanding.

I'd also like to ask that your swap cards come from a non-smoking home. I'm sorry that I have to mention this, but I have received cards in my previous swaps that had a very strong smoke odor.


Prizes-
I will be giving out a prize for each group. I will have my husband pick out his favorite cards and those cards will receive a prize. The more people who sign up the more prizes we will have!

Description-
This swap is for full cards (4 1/4" x 5 1/2"), not card fronts!- envelopes not required. You may sign up for as many spots as you would like, but please make a different card for each spot.

Quantity-
5 + 1, You will not get one of your own back, so make sure you make an extra for yourself. The +1 is for the hostess.

Vendor Products-
Feel free to use any stamps you wish. NVR for embellishments or cardstock, but please use quality cardstock (no typing paper, no construction paper, no copy paper, etc.) Recipes are not required, but please put your name and SCS name on a post it on the back of your card so we know who to thank!

Deadline-
Please have in my hands no later than 10/1/2012. I would like to have them swapped and back in the mail by 10/8/2012. I'm going to be really strict about the deadline so please mail your cards early enough. Any swaps received late will be returned unswapped.

Mailing Instructions-
Please place cards in a zip lock bag for waterproof purposes. Write the name of the swap, your SCS name, and your real name on front of bag or on a piece of paper and place in bag.

Swap return-
(*please be sure to include the correct amount of return postage*). Please include self-addressed stamped envelope. The amount of postage on your SASE should be the same amount used to mail it to me. Please include 2 additional stamps to insure enough postage on return swaps. Additional postage will be returned if I do not need it (I will not use your postage for anyone else's cards- your unused postage will be returned to you). If you prefer Priority mail, please include one $5.15 priority stamp and self-addressed priority label. I can provide the priority envelope. Please do not send metered postage (it is only good for the date on the label) please send postage stamps only.

Please send me a pm when you are ready to mail your swaps and I will send you my address. I will mark your name in blue once I receive your cards.

Saving this spot in case I need it!

teach57123 07-03-2012 04:15 AM

Good morning, Patty! I'll take 2 spots in EACH category. THANKS

EthansMom 07-03-2012 04:20 AM

Patty, I'd like a spot in Christmas and Halloween. I may add Thanksgiving, but I need to look at my stamps and brainstorm before I totally commit!

P.S. I grew up in Harborcreek, PA...class of 1991! Small world!

birdieluver 07-03-2012 06:22 AM

I'd like one spot in each category please!

LaLatty 07-03-2012 06:51 AM

Good Morning everyone! I'll update the list in just a minute. Thanks for joining!

LaLatty 07-03-2012 06:59 AM

I've update our list :)

I had to google Harborcreek PA because I wansn't sure where it was. I'm on the other side of the state, but still in PA. I saw you are from Alaska, how neat! It's such a beautiful state and maybe some day I'll get to visit there.

My friend, Kathy is another splitcoast user who lives pretty close to me. One of these days we are going to get together! Maybe she'll join us here. I never met anyone from splitcoast, but I always think how neat it would be to meet in person.

Carace 07-03-2012 09:53 AM

Patty - would like 1 spot in each catagory please. Thanks

smhtwin 07-03-2012 10:05 AM

LaLatty 07-03-2012 12:05 PM

I won't be on my computer later, but I'll check back in when I can. This is going to be a fun swap!

LaLatty 07-03-2012 01:37 PM

I can add more spots as we need them :)

Kathy....I hope you'll join us too!

LaLatty 07-03-2012 07:24 PM

We just got home. We took the kids to our friend's house for a picnic and to see our local fireworks. They all had a great time!

jennrmills 07-03-2012 10:04 PM

May I have one spot in each category please?

LaLatty 07-04-2012 07:24 AM

Good morning! We took our kids up to the Township Parade and they had so much fun! They got candy and balloons, flags, pencils, etc. It was a great time! The parade was bigger this year that it has been the past years and several of the local businesses gave out things to the kids.

Laurie, I added you too! Thanks so much :)

LaLatty 07-04-2012 06:24 PM

Whew...I'm tired tonight. We went to the parage in the morning, then we came home had lunch and spent the day swimming. I went to the grocery store, ran a few errands, and then every 4th of July all of our neighbors get together and we have our firework display. The kids in the neighborhood all have a great time!

LaLatty 07-04-2012 10:29 PM

Bumpin' for the night!

Funny! Our neighboring town is North East, PA...I thought that's what your location meant! LOL!

I am also in PA, near DuBois. I know exactly where Harborcreek is as my sons have wrestled up there in the past!

barbaralynn 07-06-2012 03:47 PM

OK--I am up for a challenge--one spot in each. I could not turn away from this swap since it is due on my birthday!

LaLatty 07-06-2012 06:38 PM

Hi everyone! I'll be back in a few minutes to update our thread. I'm just putting my kiddos to bed. They are up late tonight! Actually my little one fell asleep on the couch so I have to carry her to bed.

That's really neat! I actually live in a town called Mountaintop (sometimes it's spelled Mountain Top) and I guess I should change it on my profile.

Hi Linda! It's so nice to see you! How have you been? I didn't realize that you lived in PA too...wish we were all closer and could meet up. I always wanted to go to a shoebox swap, but they are always so far from me.
