Rnd 2 D/P Swap - Due June 2 - Prizes
 
Welcome to the second round of "I finally can use this d/p" swap. Where you can either swap cards or sheets of designer paper or both.

This swap is a bit different then what most of us are used to. How is it different you may ask? Well, you can choose to swap d/p only or you can swap cards, or both but the cards you make do not have to match one another. They can if you want them to, however, it is not mandatory that they do. The cards can be whatever size you prefer. Just make sure to include an envelope if it's not the normal A2 (5.5 x 4.25) sized card.

I don't know about you, but I always end up with designer paper that I feel just isn't my style. I have a couple of sheets that I have had forever. So instead of wasting it or it taking up space that I could use, I figured if we commit to a swap we'd force ourselves to use it. We may find that once we do make a card using this d/p that we wouldn't otherwise use, that it's not that bad after all.

If you choose to make cards, remember, all four cards do not have to match. Some of us may have d/p that just doesn't fit our style, however we have one sheet of one design and one sheet of another design. Therefore, we don't have enough of one design to make all four cards. Because of this the only rule to this swap is to use designer paper that you feel you would never otherwise use for whatever reason. Please to use sturdy cardstock as your base.


Just in case you truly can not figure out a way to use it. If you choose to swap out the paper itself you must choose which catagory your d/p fits in as far as size. And you must have at least 2 sheets. Please put how many sheets you plan on swapping. I will try to make sure you get that same number back, however, I can not promise anything. It will depend on the number of sheets I receive.

These cards and/or paper are due: June 2

Quantity for the cards - 3 & 1 You will not get one of your own, so make an extra one for yourself.

I will mail them out as soon as I receive all swaps. If I receive all of them early, I will send them out early. If your swap is received after the due date, I may have to send it back to you.

Mailing Instructions: Place swaps in a large baggie for waterproof purposes, Write your real name, your SCS name, and the name of the swap on a piece of paper and place inside the large baggie for identification purposes

Swap Return: Please include a S.A.S.E. (self-address stamped envelope). The amount of postage on your S.A.S.E should be the same amount used to mail your package to the hostess. Please include 2 additional stamps to ensure enough postage to return swaps. Additonal postage will be returned is not used. Please send only postage stamps. No dated stamps or metered mail. They will not be accepted by my postoffice. If you would prefer to use priority mail, please include one $4.95 priority stamp & a self-addressed priority label. If you are mailing from Canada please include $5 U.S. to cover return postage, and I will return whatever is left to you.

How to win prizes in your return envelope:

1. Sign up for 2 or more spots and you will recieve a prize in your return envelope.

2. I will choose mystery numbers in all the catagories. If you're name lands on one of them you will get a prize in your return envelope.

3. Be a chatterbox. Keep chatting within the forum and you will receive a prize in your return envelope.

Looks like I might be first to sign up!! I would like two spots in the dp only 12x12 cut up into 6x6....

Donnaml 01-29-2012 08:55 AM

I will take 2 spots in the 8.5 x 11 DP only please.

2CuteCats 01-29-2012 10:09 AM

Hello Dani and everyone! I would like 2 spots in the 12 x 12 DP! Only the paper for now. May change my mind and do cards later - we will see!

2CuteCats 01-29-2012 10:13 AM

So, I am confused (this happens a lot!). If you do DP only, how much do you put in for each spot you sign up for? So for each spot, do I take one 12 x 12 piece and cut in four and send all four sheets? Is that what you do for spot?

Donnaml 01-29-2012 10:58 AM

Just guessing here.....I would say yes.

Yes ma'am you are correct.

DellsDani 01-29-2012 11:12 AM

Ladies, please do not feel like you HAVE to do cards. I have to include that choice in order to post it under the card swaps. Plus I have found that I have scraps of d/p that I probably normally wouldn't use and thought maybe others may have that same issue. kwim? So, we can use those on cards since the cards do not have to be the same.

But you would send 8 pieces because I think each spot is two full sheets....KWIM?

Donna, each spot is two full sheets. You cut each sheet up into four pieces so you end up with 8 pieces per spot...(I think, now I'm getting confused!)

Donnaml 01-29-2012 05:09 PM

LOL maybe we should quit while we are ahead. Explaining it I mean:) We confuse each other and ourselves. LOL

rositagustafson72 01-29-2012 05:11 PM

Dani I would like 4 spots in 12x12 dp paper. Thank you

All I know is that I am going to send 8 pieces of 6x6 dp for each spot and i have two spots, so I will have to find another 2 sheets of12x12 and cut them up so I have 8 pieces of 6x6 for that spot too! Am I right Dani??? HUH? HUH?

2CuteCats 01-29-2012 06:04 PM

Yes Dani, we want to know!
4 sheets or 8 for one spot????

What is it?

2CuteCats 01-29-2012 06:05 PM

And how come you haven't put on name down somewhere? Don't you know that we like to see our name in print? Yeesh!

Donnaml 01-29-2012 06:25 PM

Ok, so, since I am doing 81/2 x 11, I will cut 2 sheets into 4 pieces each which makes 8 pieces total. Since I have taken 2 spots, I will have 16 pieces in all........I think:)

Yes, but 8 pieces will be one design and the other 8 will be a second dp...right?

muscrat 01-29-2012 06:28 PM

I so think we are making this harder than it has to be! LOLOLOL

Donnaml 01-29-2012 06:30 PM

Yes Kathy. But then my question is....what if you don't have 2 pieces of 81/2 x 11 that are the same?????

Your right, we may be scaring new people off also. Uh Oh!

Donnaml 01-29-2012 06:30 PM

Oh well, she did say chat away;)

Yes, she did, so we can't go to the naughty chair for this, right?

Donnaml 01-29-2012 06:37 PM

Right! The dunce chair, yes. The naughty chair, no! LOL

I don't want either but get the naughty chair for what I said earlier! Yikes! Anyway, what you ladies said makes sense and I have 2 spots so I will send in 16 sheets - 8 of each design!

DellsDani 01-29-2012 08:45 PM

Ok ladies...to make it easier to remember....Let's say you took 1 spot in the 12 x 12. You need to have 2 sheets of the 12 x 12 paper and you cut each sheet into 4 pieces. Each spot is 2 full sheets. The reason I ask you to cut them down is it makes it much easier for shipping. Does that help?

Thank you, it will be nice to get some different D/P.

samswindle 01-30-2012 04:24 AM

Whew! I sure am glad I waited until all the mumbling was over to show up!!! LOLOL!!!

Dani, I'll take 2 spots in 12x12 for now and 2 spots in 8 1/2x 11. If I decide on more I'll let you know.

Steffie_00us 01-30-2012 04:49 AM

I will take one spot (for now) in the 12X12

I will let you know if I need more

DellsDani 01-31-2012 03:24 AM

okie dokie ladies. I will put you down for the spots you requested. Thank you both for joining us. Sam, it's amazing at the paper that comes in. I don't remember if you were part of the first one I had....but we had a contest to see who's paper was the ugliest. I think Suzy800 won but not sure. It was so much fun. However, it was really cool to see how one person would think a paper was "not their style" and someone else would just love it. kwim?

Hi Dani, Can I have a spot in the 12X12?? This sounds like a great swap!!
Thanks, Amy

DellsDani 01-31-2012 07:38 AM

Amy, I put you down for one spot in 12 x 12. Thank you for joining us. Sam, there were a ton of awesome papers that came in last time. I remember I had to take some extra time to swap them out because there were so many. I hope this one is the same way. hehehe...should we do the contest again?

cargren 01-31-2012 09:48 PM

What the heck put me down for 2 spots in the 12 X 12. Sounds like a fun swap. Can always use paper.

Sama 01-31-2012 10:13 PM

Hi Dani,

Oh, yeah, I was wondering too, single or double sided??? Does it matter?

Donnaml 02-01-2012 05:31 AM

Good question!

DellsDani 02-01-2012 08:35 AM

Hello ladies. No it does not matter if it is double sided paper or single. I will add your spots car and sam. Thank you for joining us. Last time we had a contest and whomever sent in the "most ugly" paper won. I am thinking I am going to do that again, that was fun. What does everyone think?? Do we want to do that again?
