Rnd 2 D/P Swap - Due June 2 - Prizes


Welcome to the second round of "I finally can use this d/p" swap. Where you can either swap cards or sheets of designer paper or both.

This swap is a bit different then what most of us are used to. How is it different you may ask? Well, you can choose to swap d/p only or you can swap cards, or both but the cards you make do not have to match one another. They can if you want them to, however, it is not mandatory that they do. The cards can be whatever size you prefer. Just make sure to include an envelope if it's not the normal A2 (5.5 x 4.25) sized card.

I don't know about you, but I always end up with designer paper that I feel just isn't my style. I have a couple of sheets that I have had forever. So instead of wasting it or it taking up space that I could use, I figured if we commit to a swap we'd force ourselves to use it. We may find that once we do make a card using this d/p that we wouldn't otherwise use, that it's not that bad after all.

If you choose to make cards, remember, all four cards do not have to match. Some of us may have d/p that just doesn't fit our style, however we have one sheet of one design and one sheet of another design. Therefore, we don't have enough of one design to make all four cards. Because of this the only rule to this swap is to use designer paper that you feel you would never otherwise use for whatever reason. Please to use sturdy cardstock as your base.

Just in case you truly can not figure out a way to use it. If you choose to swap out the paper itself you must choose which catagory your d/p fits in as far as size. And you must have at least 2 sheets. Please put how many sheets you plan on swapping. I will try to make sure you get that same number back, however, I can not promise anything. It will depend on the number of sheets I receive.

These cards and/or paper are due: June 2

Quantity for the cards - 3 & 1 You will not get one of your own, so make an extra one for yourself.

I will mail them out as soon as I receive all swaps. If I receive all of them early, I will send them out early. If your swap is received after the due date, I may have to send it back to you.

Mailing Instructions: Place swaps in a large baggie for waterproof purposes, Write your real name, your SCS name, and the name of the swap on a piece of paper and place inside the large baggie for identification purposes
