POSTAL: 3 x 3 Thank You and No Occasion Swap, 5 + 1, DUE: May 30th
Hi Swappers!

I love these little 3" x 3" cards! They're perfect for including with a swap, with a gift or for any occasion when you just want to drop a little note. You have your choice of Thank You notes or No Occasion Cards. Sign up for as many spots as you'd like!

Description: These are 3" x 3" full cards, no envelopes required. You can sign up to make cards that say Thank You, or you can sign up for cards that are No Occasion -in other words, that don't indicate a particular event. They may say "Hello", or "Having Fun", but no "Happy Birthday" or "Happy Anniversary". Does that make sense??

Quantity: 5 + 1, you'll send 6 cards and get 5 back. The +1 is for the hostess (that's me!). You will not get one of your own cards back, so be sure to make an extra for yourself.

Vendor products: NVR, but please use a good quality card stock and at least two layers and one embellishment per card.

Recipe: No recipes required, but please include a post-it or some other ID with your card that includes your real name and your SCS name so that someone can contact you if they have any questions about a technique you used.


IN My HANDS by May 30th! Please keep in mind that mail is not moving quite as fast as it used to. Please give yourself plenty of time to get your package to me in Pennsylvania.
Sign-up date: I'll leave sign-ups open until they start to slow down.
Return Date: I will begin swapping out cards immediately and have them in the mail by June 10th.

Place your items in a large baggie for waterproof purposes. Write your real name, SCS name and swap name on a piece of paper and include in the baggie for identification purposes.


First Class: Place baggie inside a self-addressed stamped envelope for return mail purposes. The amount of postage on your SASE should be the same amount that it takes to mail to the swap hostess. To insure that enough postage will cover the returned swap items, include additional postage which will be returned if not used.

Priority: Inside your baggie, include a self-addressed priority label and one priority stamp. Swap hostesses will provide priority envelope.
Place your baggie and/or SASE envelope inside your mailing envelope. I'll pm everyone with my mailing address as they sign up.


If you are signing up from outside the US, please send US dollars to return the swap. I believe it averages about $5 per swap. I will return any money not used to mail your swap back to you.

Hey Tracy...

Guess I am the first to sign up! I will take a spot in each category.....Thanks! Oh, Good morning! :)

tfover 03-09-2013 04:25 AM

Good morning, Tracy!

I'll be second to sign up! I too enjoy the 3x3 cards! They are always so cute!
I'd love a spot in each category, please and thanks!


scrappinbinkle 03-09-2013 05:55 AM

I like the little cards, they are so fun to make. I will take a spot in each as well. Thanks for the chance to create!

stpinlight41 03-09-2013 06:12 AM

Tracy, I will definitely take one of each...I loooove mini cards!!! Thanks for the swap idea!

ktfabian2 03-09-2013 05:41 PM

Thank you, ladies!

I've got you each down for a spot in each category. I'll pm my address to you within the next day or so. If I wait til later in the swap, I can guarantee I'll forget!

Thanks so much for joining me.

ktfabian2 03-10-2013 02:19 PM


smhtwin 03-11-2013 12:45 PM

Hi Tracy -

I'll take one spot in each category -

Thanks :p

Jeziboo 03-11-2013 03:01 PM

Hello, I would love to give the 3x3 cards a try. I'm new to swapping. Can you sign me up for an "no occasion" spot?

lindac007 03-11-2013 04:25 PM

I'd like a spot in both. thanks

ktfabian2 03-11-2013 06:12 PM

Welcome, Lorraine, Jeziboo and lindac007!

If you have any questions as you go along, Jeziboo, don't hesitate to ask. We've all been new at one point or another.

Thanks for joining, ladies!

Jeziboo 03-11-2013 07:29 PM

Thanks so much. I appreciate the offer of help :)

Jeziboo 03-12-2013 03:49 PM

Question: Is there a preference for messages on the inside of the card? So should they be blank or can we incorporate the saying on the inside to our design?

ktfabian2 03-13-2013 12:18 AM

You can incorporate a saying. In the no occasion category, you can make it whatever you want that isn't specific to a particular event (birthday, anniversary, etc.) or holiday.

I hope this helps, Jeziboo. Don't hesitate to ask if you have any other questions,

ktfabian2 03-14-2013 11:47 AM


loveofsunflowers 03-15-2013 10:18 AM

Hi, I'll take a No Occasion spot please.

ktfabian2 03-15-2013 09:22 PM

Got you down for one spot in No Occasion, loveofsunflowers.

I like your name. My DH finally decided last year for the first time in close to 15 years that he'd like to plan something in our yard and he decided on sunflowers. He started them inside and transplanted the cute, 12" high seedlings outside when it warmed up. Something ate every last one of them! When I bought some sunflower plants to replace them...the hungry little bugger ate every single bloom on those poor plants. I actually saw a squirrel darting off the front porch with a big bloom hanging out of his mouth.

As much as we love sunflowers, I think we'll probably try something that isn't attractive to squirrels and other animals this year!

Welcome to the swap,

ktfabian2 03-16-2013 04:51 PM

It's a quiet, snowy Saturday night here. We've gotten about 2-3" of snow today, but none of it stuck to the roads...my kind of snow! I hope everyone's having a good weekend!

ktfabian2 03-18-2013 05:31 PM

It's now a quiet snowy Monday. I'm going to have to go out and look for more players!

footballmom64 03-20-2013 01:59 PM

Hi, Can I please get a spot in No Occasion. Thanks

ktfabian2 03-20-2013 02:00 PM

Hi ladies,

I wanted to let you know that I'm having some health issues at the moment and may be off line for a few days. If you want to join this swap or if you have questions, please just go ahead and post and I'll get back to you in a few days.


lindac007 03-20-2013 05:24 PM


jtrenn 03-23-2013 01:20 PM

stpinlight41 03-23-2013 02:39 PM

Mine are also completed, but I don't have your address to send them out. I'm really excited about them!

ktfabian2 03-24-2013 06:45 PM

Hi Ladies,

My address is:
K. Tracy Fabian
210 E Grand St
Nanticoke, PA 18634

Sorry I haven't been around. I'm still feeling lousy.

Glamour 03-24-2013 09:39 PM

Is this swap still open? I would love a spot in the "3" x 3" THANK YOU CARDS".


tfover 03-25-2013 01:05 PM

I'm working on these today... hope to get them out to you tomorrow! (from Ontario)

Hope you're feeling better!

ktfabian2 03-25-2013 05:03 PM


Yes, the swap is still open, WELCOME!! I'll put you down for a spot in Thank You.

I've finally crawled off the couch and am starting to feel like a real human. I have to figure out what's causing these bouts of nausea and vomiting. This is the fourth time since last June and they usually last more than a week. YUCK!

It's good to be back,

ktfabian2 03-27-2013 12:52 PM

Hello, hello, hello??? just checking in. I hope everyone is having a great day!

Quilling_Queen 03-27-2013 02:42 PM

I'm starting back small since I do not have much stamina these days.

I would like 1 spot in No Occasion.

Thanks Tracey for your encouragement as of late.

smhtwin 04-02-2013 08:38 AM


Tracy - hope you're feeling better!

ktfabian2 04-02-2013 07:00 PM

Thanks, Lorraine!

I am feeling better. I hope my pain doctor can get rid of the pain in my upper back tomorrow with some trigger point injections, and then I should be as good as new, or close enough, anyway!


It's nice to see you swapping again. I hope you're feeling better! I'll put you down for a spot in No Occasion.

Ladies, I'm going to keep this open a while longer since we seem to still be picking up participants here and there. Feel free to mail to me whenever you're ready. My address is listed in a post above.


ktfabian2 04-02-2013 07:06 PM


Your cards came yesterday. They're fantastic!


pamper1 04-03-2013 08:27 AM

I would like 1 spot in Thank You
and 1 spot in No Occasion.

ktfabian2 04-03-2013 02:23 PM


Your cards came today and they're beautiful! Thanks!


I have you down for a spot in each category. Thanks for joining us!

Hope everyone is having a great hump day! I went shopping today and spent WAY too much on craft stuff, considering my DH is out of work. But sometimes you just have to break loose and have some fun, right?

AnMiSu 04-03-2013 03:27 PM

I'll take a spot in each category please. Thanks!

ktfabian2 04-06-2013 07:05 AM

Welcome, Michelle! I've got you down for a spot in each category! Thanks for joining us,

ktfabian2 04-08-2013 09:01 PM


kraftykay 04-09-2013 08:43 AM

ooo! 3x3's. Yes please.

May I have one spot in the no occasion category please?
Tracy, I'm a Canadian swapper so will make sure to send early and with sufficient return.


lindac007 04-09-2013 02:08 PM

I finished these in no time today of course had all items in front of me (haha) but I was wondering can I have another spot in each?

All times are GMT -8. The time now is 09:31 PM.
