This secret sister swap is geared toward those stampers who are looking for new card folds and cuts or techniques to incorporate into their crafting!

I'm in, I love learning new things. US mailing pls.

Paige 01-25-2013 12:00 PM

I'd love to join! I enjoy fun folds and new techniques.

Paige 01-25-2013 12:01 PM

Oh, US only please.

morgainegeiser 01-25-2013 12:15 PM

I am in - USA mailing please

cj nalley 01-25-2013 01:18 PM

This sounds like fun. US, Canada, overseas

russnzella 01-26-2013 01:55 PM

I'm in! US only please..

1. What are your favorite crafting colors? Anything but neons...lately I seem to be more into neutral/nature colors

2. Is there a card fold or technique that you would enjoy learning how to create? Honestly, my card fold and technique skills are pretty minimal so this will be a good way for me to go outside my comfort zone and learn something new.

3. How do you organized your 12 inch papers? You're supposed to organize?

4. What is your favorite style or craft company? Depends on what I'm looking for....I'm not real loyal to one brand - usually just go for whatever I like at the moment. But I do have a love of Sweet 'n Sassy stamps.

5. Add any additional information you might want someone to know about your crafting habits! Last year I started trying to focus more on using what I have and not buying new things. It's worked out pretty well. This year my goal is to use more of the stamps that I have. Sad to say I have many that have never seen ink. Hoping that will change.

morgainegeiser 01-26-2013 03:57 PM

1. What are your favorite crafting colors? Mainly earth tones, but I also like purple & lime green combo, yellow & gray combo, pink & brown combo

2. Is there a card fold or technique that you would enjoy learning how to create? I am pretty much an open slate, I have done a few folds but would definitely like to see far more

3. How do you organized your 12 inch papers? By holidays or seasons for DP, for plain colors by color family, I have two racks from a defunked LSS, and I love them.

4. What is your favorite style or craft company? I usually tend to be clean & modern, once in awhile cutesy, seldom go the grunge route. I like Authenique, MME, pink paisley, Little Yellow bicycle, Jilli Bean Soup, Simple Stories.

5. Add any additional information you might want someone to know about your crafting habits! Been card making for awhile, got burnt out on cards for awhile and just did SS swaps, but now I need to use some of the stuff I got in those swaps, also finding I enjoy making a few cards versus six - ten of the same card. I enjoy challenges, not doing the same thing over and over.

morgainegeiser 01-26-2013 04:01 PM

What month is the first month we need to send by - Feb.15th or Mar. 15th?

dawnmercedes 01-26-2013 05:36 PM

Two cards by March 15th...

So Feb-March 15th is month one. I wasn't sure how quickly this forum would be up or how soon people would sign up...So I planned that we would officially start 2/15...if not sooner!

Paige 01-27-2013 02:40 AM

1. What are your favorite crafting colors? I go through a lot of red, kraft, and white card stock, but also use seasonal colors. I rarely use pastels.

2. Is there a card fold or technique that you would enjoy learning how to create? I love fun folds and manipulative cards, so am always looking for those ideas.

3. How do you organized your 12 inch papers? My only 12 x 12 papers are patterned papers from SU. I keep those in their packages and arrange alphabetically and by holiday in a large carton.

4. What is your favorite style or craft company? SU, Gina K. and am getting into the more whimsical companies similar to and including Paper Smooches.

5. Add any additional information you might want someone to know about your crafting habits! I love to use bling, ribbon, buttons, twine, charms, and any other fun and unusual embellishments on my cards. My cards also have lots of layers and most likely patterned paper.

Good morning everyone I hope you have a wonderful day.

Dea

dawnmercedes 01-30-2013 04:51 AM

Thanks...you too!

hey, feel free to ask your cyber stamping friends to join this swap!

muzbysmom 01-31-2013 05:00 AM

I'll join in. US only please!

1. What are your favorite crafting colors? Most any color combined with brown or black and white with a splash of a bright color.

2. Is there a card fold or technique that you would enjoy learning how to create? ??? Not sure. Tried the tissue flowers yesterday and that went nowhere! Do enjoy trying new things even if they don't work out.....

3. How do you organized your 12 inch papers? I have those plastic stand up divided things (not sure what to call them) and sort colored papers by color groups in one and sort DP by company in another.

4. What is your favorite style or craft company? Love SU for most everything. Only like the thicker double sided papers for DP. LOVE punch art and CAS.

5. Add any additional information you might want someone to know about your crafting habits! I started out scrapbooking and didn't even like stamping when I attended my first Stampin' Up party. Demo assumed everyone knew what they were doing and didn't give much instruction and I left frustrated. Making a new friend who also stamped (met at a CM workshop but she'd just signed up as a SU demo) and took the time to teach me got me hooked on stamping. I now stamp more than I scrapbook (I'm WAY behind on my scrapbooking now).

Stamperamma 02-02-2013 05:38 AM

Good morning everyone, hope you have a wonderful day.

Dea

Stamperamma 02-03-2013 01:56 AM
