Default Closed & Creating ~ Card Kits Round #2 (Penny Black & House Mouse)

Card Kit Swap Round #2

Given that there are so many fabulous stamp & product companies out there and with the way the economy is, none of us can afford to buy every single stamp or product; so with that being said I hope you will join me in my Card Kit Swaps.

Okay, here’s how it works:

Sign Up's will be taken until August 10th, 2013.

Choose which catagory you want to make card kits for and how many spots you want in each catagory. Basically in each kit, you are going to supply enough materials for your recipients to create 4 cards. Each SPOT requires 3+1 kits. (The +1 is for the hostess.)

However, EACH spot requires a different card kit.

The Catagories Are:

Penny Black

House Mouse


Each person to sign up will make 3+1 Card Kits, PER SPOT! (+1's are going to the hostess). You can sign up for, as many spots as you'd like, but please make sure the kits are different.

I would also like to encourage ALL swap participants who sign up to check in and post periodically on the thread. This helps to ensure that you are still involved in the swap, and helps build friendly repour with fellow SCS members.

The first 5 to sign up will be RAK'd in there return package.

Each Kit should contain the following:

Enough supplies for your recipient to make 4 cards. Please coordinate the contents of your kit.

4- Stamped images (all the same, per kit) with waterproof/Copic friendly ink and stamped on 1/4 sheet cardstock. Make sure they are stamped cleanly and sharp. Embossed images age encouraged!!!

(Also, check to make sure that your images comply with the SCS approved stamp companies.) Here is the link: http:////

4- Sentiments/sayings for your cards (Encouraged but OPTIONAL)

4- 1/4 sheets of coordinating paper or DSP, to make your card.

Enough Embellishments for each card: Ribbon (minimum of 6" per card), charms, hardware, gems, flowers, brads, buttons, glitter, flock, flower get the idea.

Last but not least--EXTRAS! These are things that make a good kit great: Some examples are: cardstock for card bases, envelopes, punched or die cut shapes, a recipe with dimensions of layer’s & such, (extra paper, sentiments, embossed backgrounds, extra images, extra ribbon, bakers twine, etc.

Be creative!! Think of a kit you have gotten in a swap that made you say, "WOW"--that's a card kit!!!!

Place package each kit separately into a baggie. Label EACH bag with your SCS Name, REAL NAME, and the swap catagory!!!

Due Date:

In my hands by September 15th, 2013 and no later. However, if all of the packages are in my hands BEFORE the due date, I will mail them out early. NO LATE packages will be accepted! NO EXCEPTION’S!!!

Let me know when your kit is postal and when you have received your kits. This is a must!


Place the kits inside a Ziploc bag with your SCS User Name, Real Name and the name of the swap on the outside of each kit!!! Please send a return address label and as much postage as it took to send them to me plus two extra postage stamps, if they aren't used, they will be returned to you. Priority Mail is a GREAT way to ship for swaps of this sort since it’s only $5.60 for everything that fits in the envelope AND gives you tracking of your package for FREE!!!

Also, I would highly recommend sending in a sturdy (Priority type envelope) or a bubble envelope to protect your items from getting bent or damaged.

Please mail in an envelope large enough to accommodate larger pieces for the return trip to you.

When you are ready to mail your package, please send it to me at:
