Splitcoaststampers.com - the world's #1 papercrafting community
You're currently viewing Splitcoaststampers as a GUEST. We pride ourselves on being great hosts, but guests have limited access to some of our incredible artwork, our lively forums and other super cool features of the site! You can join our incredible papercrafting community at NO COST. So what are you waiting for?
Here we are--the first round of the fun swap that is similar to one was created by Jeanette! I am so excited to be the first hostess of the unidentified image swap!
Sorry, but this is a closed swap which means that we will not be adding any further participants. Those who are listed in the next post have indicated that they wish to start in this ongoing swap. Please note--if you do not send in your swap from the round, you will forfeit your opportunity to participate in the swap.
I am assuming everyone on the list is going to send in their swap for this round and will therefore move onto Round 2. I am sure Kelly is eager to get all of her images for us put together for the next round, so she will plan to make images for everyone on the list. In the future, you will need to notify the current hostess if you are planning to continue.
- Make 3+1 cards (+1 is for me!!)
- You will be getting 3 cards back. You will not get one of your own back…so if you want one for yourself, make an extra and keep it.
- Standard (4Ľ x 5˝) cards. No envelopes necessary. If you make a different size card, please include envelopes.
- Please use good quality cardstock (like SU, PTI, Gina K) & at least 2 layers.
- Designer Papers are suggested, but not required
- Please use 1 embellishment. If your card could benefit from more, feel free to use as many as you would like.
** Please be sure to sign the back of your cards (or adhere a post-it note with your name) so we know whose work to admire!!
It’s a mystery … or surprise … so please don’t spill the beans about the image until everyone has it. Please post once you receive your image so we can begin chatting about it. Please wait to post your card to your gallery or your blog until April 10th. I will take pictures of all the cards as they come in and I will create an album in my gallery on April 10th with all of the cards. As in all of my swaps, if there is a card you love and just have to have, send me a PM and I will try to honor all requests.
Place your cards in a large ziplock bag for waterproofing. Include a card/paper with your name and SCS username. Include a SASE with the same amount of postage that it took to mail to me along with a couple of extra postage stamps. Just another reminder--you will be receiving a package of images in your return envie that will probably weigh more than the extra hostess card you sent, so maybe add 2 or 3 additional stamps. I will return extra postage not used. Please do not use metered postage on your return envelope. The post office will not accept them.
Cards must be in my hands no later than April 10, 2012.
Please send your cards to: Barb Deichl
