Default ON THE WAY HOME**CDN BASED**~ FANCY FOLD CARD SWAP due November 1

I've been browsing all the available swaps and contemplating joining them all when it hit me ...why don't I host my own swap??? So here I go, I'm taking the plunge. This will be my first time hosting a swap so please be gentle ladies. Please let me know if I forget anything or make any mistakes

This swap will be for fancy folds. This means any card that has a fold other than the traditional 1/2 (A2) fold. You can do something as simple as changing the place of the score lines to more complicated ones such as tri shutter, tri fold, window cards, pockets, etc. There's lots to choose from and ideas and tutorials can be found on the resources page.

There are NVR on any of the products but please use good quality cardstock (preferably SU) and make something that you would want to receive and would be proud to give.

These cards can be any occasion and have any sentiment. The cards can be 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 or another size depending on what works for your fold. However, if they are a different size, please include envies. Otherwise envies are not necessary.

Please be on time, I will try and swap these out within 2 days of the due date which is November 1, 2009. I realize life happens so if you are going to be late or if you need to drop this swap just PM me and I am more than willing to work with you.

Requirements: You will be making 5 + 1 (the +1 is for me ). I am hoping to get enough people to not have to give you back one of your own, so please make an extra for yourself. Please use good quality cardstock, at least 2 layers, and 1 embellishment. Again NVR on any of the products but please make your card something you would be proud to give and/or receive.

Recipes are not required but if you'd like to include one please feel free to do so on a sticky. Also include your real name and SCS name on a sticky on the card so that the recipient knows who to thank.

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 include a self-addressed stamped envelope. Please include 2 additional stamps on top of the amount it took to send to me to ensure enough postage. Extra postage will be returned. PLEASE SEND ONLY POSTAGE STAMPS, NO DATED STAMPS OR METERED MAIL. For any US swappers, please include $5 (either CDN or US) and I will return any change.

Please PM me for my address when you're ready to send.

If I forgot something, please let me know! Thanks for supporting my first swap!

I would love to join your swap! Would you like the fold we are doing, or does it matter?

Hi there, is this thread for SU demos only? I subscribed to it but I wasn't sure if it was open to the "general" stamping community?
thanks

Aww thanks!
I am getting there. Standing for too long or sitting for too long hurts my legs and I"m still extremely tired all the time. Today is last day of medication though ~ so I'm going to go back and see the doc next week and see how things are going and if the bloodwork turned up anything.

Thanks for you well wishes!!

Don't take this wrong, but we should always work extra hard to make swap cards good! I just finished a swap (a 3 + 1 swap) and only one card was good enough to use! The other two were made with cheap paper and had sloppy workmanship. So, I'm looking forward to your very best! : )

Don't want to be a downer, especially since I am about to sign up, but please remember that people do the best they can with what they have. We are not all expert cardmakers the quality of those on design teams. I do my very best with each and every swap and my cards may not always be to the liking of the person receiving them, but at least I know I did my best. Please keep in mind that not everyone has been doing this for as long as others have and they may not have the experience that others do.

I know you were kidding! I was just venting because I was so disappointed in my last swap........the quality of the work. The hostess was wonderful, just some people join way too many swaps and then rush to get them done quickly. Christyne, I'm sorry you took this wrong. Two people in my last swap used really cheap paper and had not even looked at the tutorial for this type of card, as they didn't have the proper technique. Also one of the cards had cut edges that were not neat (her blade must have been dull) and also a punched flower had been punched off the edge of the paper (made the flower incomplete) as well as a bit of ink smeared on some flowers. I know this is not the norm, and most people do a wonderful job on swap cards. Sorry for venting in a thread where it is not applicable.
