Closed and swapping....Once Upon A Time.......due now!
Card kit swaps are all the rage now and with good reason -- they are fun AND useful! It's great to try out new stamps and what could be easier than a pre-coordinated kit? Or, create an Entire card and enter our Cards category. Feeling crafty or just cant decide, sign up for a spot in both our completed cards and our card kits!!

Thank you for looking at our Once Upon a Time Fairy Tale Swap

SWAP QUANTITY: 4+1 (you send in 5 of the same kits/cards and receive 4 different kits in return; the plus one is for the hostess) for each spot.

If you choose to do the CARD KIT, then each card kit includes:

1. 2-3 Fairytale images (dragons, princesses, princes, witches, queens and giants to name a few) all the same, CLEANLY and CLEARLY stamped in a Copic friendly ink and NOT colored in. Please label your packet with ink type and leave enough room for cropping.

2. At least 2 6” x 6” sheets of coordinating Designer Paper.

3. At least 12” of ribbon, trim, cord, or other ‘fiber’.

4. Set (4-6) of coordinating embellishments. These can be anything like brads, buttons, primas, gemstones, etc.

5. Optional items that really raise a kit’s ‘Wow’ factor are stamped sentiments, stamped backgrounds, punched shapes, sample photos of cards made with the kit’s supplies, anything else fun you can think of! Be creative!

If you choose to do the COMPLETED CARD, each completed card is to be:

1. made on high quality cardstock

2. No vendor product restrictions. Just make beautiful cards that you would want to receive

3. No envies necessary for regular A2 cards(5 1/2 x 4 1/4). If you choose to make another size card, please send envies.

***If you sign up for more than 1 spot, you need to use a different image and supplies for each kit. Thank you.***

PACKAGING: Package each individual kit in its own Ziploc bag and label with your name and SCS name. Place ALL 5 kit baggies in one large Ziploc and also label with your name and SCS name.

MAILING INSTRUCTIONS: Place large Ziploc full of kits in a self-addressed, stamped envelope (bubble envelope recommended to protect kit contents) and then place in mailing envelope. ** Be sure to use stamps because many P.O.s will not accept meter strips and make sure postage is equal to amount it cost to mail your kits. Include a couple of extra stamps or $1 in case your returns kits are heavier; I will return all unused postage.

Do not prepay for priority labels - the date they are purchased needs to match the mail on date...Priority stamps are OK

Also Canadian stamps can't be used to mail from the US...so please just send cash or US postage stamps.

DUE DATE: All swaps are due in our hands by November 11, 2012 that way we can have them swapped and ready to ship back out before the holidays. if not received by this time, they will be returned, if you cant complete your kits, please let us know. We will try to have them swapped out and returned in the mail within 10 days, sooner if we can because, we are always excited to get our kits and we bet you are too! :D

justme1972 09-28-2012 07:08 PM

hi heather and all!!! gonna be a quiet weekend at my house.....so i think i'll finish getting furniture in my dollhouse. i'm thrilled i get to have it out again! I get that done and i think i'll consider DH and i moved in!!!!


auntangie 09-29-2012 07:31 AM

Good morning! Laura I would love to see a picture of your doll house when you get it set up. I never got to see it when you lived here.

justme1972 09-29-2012 08:53 AM

Hi angie! I never even unpacked the dollhouse when i was living there - didn't have a good place for it. then when i thought of a good place, DH couldn't find that box and said the movers must've forgotten it on the truck. it wasn't until fairly recently that he found the box and by then there wasn't any point in getting it out.


tracy836 09-29-2012 07:29 PM

Katherine is so excited to get to come help with your dollhouse tomorrow!! She really loves hanging out with you guys!! Good night everyone!

justme1972 09-29-2012 07:56 PM

auntangie 10-03-2012 04:32 PM

Hi All! Busy here too. Started new job on Monday. I finally today decided that I might survive. The first couple of days I wasn't too sure.

tryingtofindtime 10-03-2012 04:39 PM

hey ladies....I'm going to sub for now...let me see what I can come up with. I'd be in for card kits for now. I know I have fairy images that should work. but want to get it all together before I join for sure.

justme1972 10-03-2012 06:13 PM

Hi all!!!!! Fairy images -- oh, that'd be so cool!!!!!!!! looks like you had a really fun swap kristyn! I'm sorry i missed it!

tomorrow my son & his girlfriend arrive for at least the weekend - i've not seen them since just after moving here. and then a daughter in the Jacksonville area and her family are coming on Friday night - and heather and her family is coming over and staying just as much as she can. I can hardly wait!!!!!!!!


auntangie 10-03-2012 07:24 PM

angie -- i got my florida's drivers license today. and their camera doesn't make me look one bit better than the camera in iowa.....bummers!!!!!

auntangie 10-03-2012 07:53 PM

LOL! I think every state uses cameras made by the same company. Does florida make you take your glasses off and not smile like Iowa does now?
