~ Postal ~ All Occasion Mixer ~ 5+1 ~ DUE Sept 1st
 
Greetings fellow swappers! While browsing thru the swap forum I noticed that many of the swaps offer like for like... floral cards for floral cards for example. While this is great for getting ideas and enjoying other swapper's work, its not very good when yer just getting started and have a limited amount of sets! With that in mind I created this swap :)

As long as we get enough swappers you will receive cards that are in a DIFFERENT category than what you send!!


Description: Full Size Card- 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Please use at least 2 layers & 1 embellishment! If you make a size different than this, please include envelopes.

Quantity: 5+1 - You won't get one of your own back, so make an extra one for yourself!

Vendor Products: Any stamp from any company, but PLEASE use very good quality cardstock (PTI/Gina K/SU), No vendor restriction on embellishments - use as many embellishments as you like. Designer papers are encouraged, but not required.

Due Date: Saturday, September 1, 2012. I will mail them as soon as I receive all swaps! If your cards are received after the due date, I may have to return them to you. Please post in the thread or send me a PM when your cards are postal.

Mailing instructions: Place swap cards 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. YOU MAY ALSO INCLUDE A LIST OF THE TOP 5 CARD CATEGORIES YOU'D LIKE RETURNED TO YOU!

Swap Return: Please include a self-addressed stamped envelope. The amount of postage on your SASE should be the same amount used to mail to hostess (that would be me). 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!! 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 cash (or more for additional spots) to cover return postage, and I will return whatever is left to you.

Please post or PM me with any questions.

Mail swap cards to:
Sarah Lassey
1025 Fritz Rd
Mckinleyville, CA
95519

These are just suggestions for occasions... if you have an idea for what you'd like to do let me know and I'll add it!! Feel free to sign up for more than one spot....

humboldthoney79 07-23-2012 12:52 PM

Workin on some new cards today!! Hope everyone has a great week :)

ilystamps 07-24-2012 07:00 PM

bumping!

I wanted to Check Sarah are the 5 cards we are swapping swapped in the same category or all mixed??

Hope your having a good night!

humboldthoney79 07-24-2012 08:10 PM

Well the idea was that they would be all mixed but I'm getting a bit worried that we won't have enough swappers to make it work well. Part of the inspiration for this swap was that it can be kinda tough if you need say, a Male birthday card but don't have any masculine stamp sets. The way most of the swaps seem to work is you sign up for a spot and then get the same type back so I was trying to do something a bit different for those of us who don't have a wide variety of different sets....

Hope we can get more swappers!! Plenty of time left to sign up :)

ilystamps 07-24-2012 08:21 PM

What if you got rid of the specific categories ? and just have spots ? seeing as its a mixer ? and everyone could get back a wide vaierty?
Maybe you can check with Emily and advertise in her swap?

stampmontana 07-24-2012 09:13 PM

Hi Sarah,

I am here because Dani mentioned it. I will take one spot for thank you cards. If I finish some other swaps I am in by the end of this week maybe I will take another spot.

Thank you.

ilystamps 07-24-2012 09:56 PM

Wooo!! Hi Jeri!!!

ilystamps 07-25-2012 01:25 AM

Can I swap kids girl to kids boy?

humboldthoney79 07-25-2012 01:38 AM

Hey Jeri... thanks for joining!! I've got ya down for a spot and just let me know if ya want another one :)

Big thanks to Dani for the referral too! As for the whole category thing... my thinking was that then people could see what they might be getting back. I was also trying to throw out ideas and try to insure that everyone didn't so the same occasion BUT....

That being said... if someone just wants to sign up feel free :)
