Default POSTAL: Shake it Up!

For this swap, you can bust out your sequins, seed beads, tiny punches, wooden shapes, enamel/resin pieces , glitter, sand ... anything you can shake, shake, shake in a shaker card!

Any theme is welcome ... but of course, snow is the first thing that comes to MY mind!

If you have never made a shaker card before, now is the time to jump on the bandwagon! There are tons and tons of tutorials out on the Web. I for one, watch tons of YouTube videos when I want to learn something new. Also, SCS has an easy tutorial as well! Splitcoaststampers - Shaker Card Project Tutorial by Beate Johns

Details
Quantity: 4 + 1 (you will not receive your own back, so please make one more for yourself!)

Size: Any size is welcome as long as it is a full card. Please include an envelope if your card is any other size besides a standard A2.

Due Date: Swaps are due to me by Friday, December 4. I will swap the cards over the weekend and mail them out to all of you by Monday, December 7. (Any Christmas-themed cards should arrive back to you in time to mail out for Christmas!) By the way, if I receive all swaps early, I will ship early.

Quality/Restrictions: Please use at least 80lb cardstock for your card bases. In general, please make sure your cards are something you would be excited to give someone. Try to keep it free of inky fingerprints (unless a fingerprint is part of your design), fuzzy edges because of dull trimmer blades, etc. Otherwise, there are NO restrictions on this card design. Just make it shake and have tons of fun doing it!

Postage: This swap is open to US and International stampers. Please send either a self-addressed, stamped envelope or a priority mail label with your name and address neatly printed. If you want your package returned via priority mail, please include a minimum of $5.75 in postage and one or two extra "Forever" stamps just in case. I will return any extra postage. If you are international, please send the appropriate amount of postage in US dollars. I will return any extra cash to you. Alternatively, I have a PayPal account, so if international participants would like to pay for postage via PayPal, that is great too! (Probably the easiest, now that I think of it!)

Miscellaneous:
1. Please put your swaps in a Ziploc bag to ensure the cards to do not get damaged if they become wet (I live in the Seattle area, after all ... you never know around here!).

2. Please ensure your swaps are clearly labeled with your real name and your SCS name.

3. If you sign up, but later realize you need to withdraw, I totally get it. All I ask is that you let me know so I can try to substitute with an angel swapper, or whip up a few sets myself!

Q&A:
May I sign up for more than one "slot"? Why yes, of course you may! If you sign up for more than one slot, please make a new design for each spot. In addition, please adjust the amount of postage you send accordingly. Finally, please put each design in its own Ziploc bag (this is to help me stay organized!).

How often do I have to check in by posting on the swap thread? Well, this is purely up to your discretion. I will always encourage chit chat, because for me, a large part of the fun of swaps is getting to know each other in the threads (although, please keep political debates to a minimum if possible ... I know elections are heating up, and I know we all come from diverse backgrounds and political beliefs ... let's just keep this swap free from polarizing topics and focus on what we all have in common ... STAMPING and FUN!!). Anyway, I digress ... you can post as much or as little as you want. I hope you'll post a lot though, I will miss you otherwise.

Can I win a prize? YES - you can win multiple prizes!!! I am a first-time hostess, so I'm not above bribing people to join this swap!!

1. I will give prize to the first 40 sign ups!

2. I will give a prize to the person whose cards I receive first!

3. I will give another prize to anyone whose cards I receive on or before Friday, November 27!

4. I will give a prize to anyone who signs up for two or more slots !

5. FINALLY people who post on the thread will be entered to win a big prize! I'm talking BIG (like brand new stamp/die set)! The more you post, the more times you will be entered into the drawing to win. Oh ... and posts like "bump" and "JCI" don't count. I will regularly post topics for discussion, so it shouldn't be hard to join in with the conversation!

MAIL TO:

Theresa Forseth
P.O. Box 1851
Woodinville, WA 98072 USA

Please write "SCS Swap" below your return address.

I'm super excited and looking forward to a fabulous "first-time hostess" swap!!!

Inky hugs to all of you!

I know the "shaker card" technique has been around a VERY long time in the stamping community. I first remember the resurgence in popularity of this style of card a couple of years ago, and it really doesn't seem to be going away! I have never made one of these cards before a couple of years ago, but it quickly became one of my favorite things to make!

Here is the card that started my love affair:

http://prettypinkposh.com/2014/04/ca...in-shaker.html

I love that Paulina included little tiny wood stars with her sequins. So fun!

What kinds of things do YOU like to use in your shakers??

I'd like a spot. This sounds fun, not sure I'll do a Christmas card.

Good morning and happy Monday!!! Today kind of feels like a McDonald's egg mcmuffin and coffee kind of day. Normally my go-to breakfast is Honey Bunches of Oats with almond milk and dark roast coffee courtesy of my Keurig.

What's your go-to breakfast??? I need some ideas!

Okay - so, I made my rounds to the craft stores after work today (all I needed was about a yard or so of 1" ivory lace!). Anyway, I loaded up on tons of "prizes"!! All of the Christmas and holiday stuff is out everywhere and it is all so beautiful! It looks like Woodland creatures are en vogue again this year! I decorated with woodland creatures last year, so it will be fun to add to the collection!

Good morning, swappers! I just did something I told myself I would never do ... I used hot glue on a card because I was too impatient to wait for multi medium matte to dry! Eek! Sometimes we just have to live on the edge, right??!

During the week because I start work at 6am, it's usually an instant pkg of oatmeal. Weekends it's usually a bagel and cream cheese.

I have two options- There's a deli and bakery across the street from my job... So from the deli I usually get a bacon, egg and cheese... From the deli I get a pretzel roll... Before I get breakfast I usually get coffee from 7-eleven...

7-11 has great coffee! I have totally forgotten about instant oatmeal - that used to be my absolute favorite food (even beating out cheese and pizza!). Sometime in the last 10 years I switched to quick oats ... oh ... I remember why! I used to eat instant oatmeal every morning at work, and the office banned my instant oatmeal because it smelled too much like pancakes! Can you even believe that!!???!! Popcorn was also banned at work due to the smell. I'm sorry ... but I think both smell super scrumptious! My problem is with the re-heated broccoli and fish! Anyway, I ended up making my own quick oats and started bringing that to work with me and mixed in the brown sugar and raisins AFTER the oatmeal was heated. Hahaha ... I had totally forgotten about getting food banned at work.

Do you guys have a Tuesday Morning near you? I was there on Monday and they had lots of Spellbinders dies, Sizzix dies (the thick, steel rule kind) and Darice embossing folders for only 99 cents! I bought 2 or 3 Spellbinders sets for about $5.99 each. They also had Hero Arts notecards w/coordinating envelopes!! I had hoped to get back there tonight (since they get new stuff on Tuesdays) to see if there were more dies. Alas, I worked way too late tonight! Maybe tomorrow!

I used to shop exclusively online, but lately I have fallen back in love with Michaels, Joann's and Hobby Lobby. I have only recently discovered Tuesday Morning. My stash is seriously out of control, though!

What kinds of deals are impossible for YOU to turn down ... even though you know you have gobs of said item in your craft room?

I have to be very careful on what I bring home due to storage. our house was built in 1924 so we have split the upstairs, half for me and half for hubbys game/guy space. There are no closets up there so I've had to be very picky in storage. Plus it doesn't help the puppy likes to play with my stuff when hubby has him up there. But when I do find something, it seems to be stamps lately. Also helps I've been making a sell pile so my stamp bin is getting empty and just waiting to be filled with new toys.

It's good news that you're clearing out some stamps to make room for new ones - just in time for the holidays!!

I know what you mean about tight storage ... I share my craft room with our home office. I buy too many things. I just can't help myself. It drives my husband nuts. Oh well, on the bright side, I have lots of fun goodies to give away for prizes! Yahoo!!

Hello, my friends!

I am only going to make three more fall-themed cards this year. Then I think I'm moving on to Christmas tags.

What's on your crafty agenda?

What are your plans for the weekend?

We're having a family fun day on Saturday. We are going to take my niece on a pumpkin patch/apple-picking adventure and I can't wait to spend the day with my favorite two-year-old. Seriously, this kid is THE love of my life!! She's so funny and sassy ... and she has this thick head of toe-head blonde curly hair ... it kills me!

Okay, I'll stop fawning now! Her baby brother, my new nephew, is due in February! OMG - I can't wait!!!

Halloween and birthdays. Have to get a card in the mail this weekend for my cousins b-day next week. And decided this year I wanted to use my LF bag die and make some treat bags for the girls at work. Haven't decided if I'll make a card to go with it or just put a little saying on the bags. Need to get going on it all though as I work every other weekend, and of course this is my work weekend, and then next weekend my cousin is down and we are headed to the Vikings game. Running out of time to get this stuff done. Hope to get up to my desk tonight after I get off work and we get the grocery shopping done

So, normally I'm super exhausted on Friday nights, but for some reason, I'm still up and at 'em! It feels good to just hang out with my husband. Actually, I kicked him out of the house to go buy some ice cream, and I took the opportunity to start my first-ever mixed-media canvas. Hopefully it turns out better than my "painted mason jar" debacle!

I wish I was more creative and new more about color theory and art in general. If I ever have more than an hour a week to spend being creative, I am going to think about taking a real, bonafide art class!

Have fun at the Vikings game, jamiemn!

Good morning ladies! So, I started my mixed-media canvas last night. I have to say I am super excited about it so far. I can see now why people get so into it ... it's really fun to let loose and just see what happens! The only plan I have in mind is that I want it to look like autumn. That's it.

We're having our first super rainy day here in Seattle that we've had in a really long time ... I'm talking MONTHS! So, it looks like the pumpkin patch with my niece is out. I'm going to bring a few craft supplies to my dad's house ... I see a little finger painting in our future!!

I hope you all have a great Saturday!!!
