Can someone please tell me the difference between a shoe box or stamp a stack?

Tell me like you would a kindergartener.

I just can't seem to get it.

Near as I can decipher, the shoe box idea is that multiple people bring enough "stuff" for everyone to make ONE card of that design, so you get a stack of a variety of cards.

With stamp a stack you make multiples of the same card - usually assembly-line style, so you have a stack of the same card.

I don't generally do either, so someone may have better information, but that's my understanding...

great explanation Sue ! I never heard of either, and You Tube has samples of both.

Well I had never heard of the shoe box, so thanks for bringing it up! Sounds interesting. I have participated in an event something like that but did not know it had a name

I work in a Kindergarten classroom and we all like simple explanations....

That is my understanding. I'd add that I typically see "shoe box" as a swap option at large get togethers. Sometimes the rules are that you bring supplies to create HALF as many cards as attendees, and you bring the other HALF as completed cards-- because there isn't going to be time to make all the cards, so everybody makes some but also takes home completed ones they didn't make.

And then I feel like stamp-a-stacks are workshops or classes offered by demonstrators to get you to come order stuff. I don't think I've seen them in the context of swaps.

I never heard of these two things either. This is really fascinating and cool. I am peeking at YouTube after I finish posting this to find examples. I love the idea of a shoebox. Wouldn't that be a cute idea for our own individual cardmaking?

That is not a kindergartner question. I take that back yes it is. Five year olds always, always ask the best questions and they are just so creative.

Sue was correct.


For a shoe box swap, a group gets together. Each person brings a "shoe box" that has the parts and pieces to make the card they designed and you go around the room making each others cards. At the ones I have participated in, one card's worth of stuff is in a baggie with enough baggies for the number of participants. Generally you need to bring your own adhesive. I usually also bring along my bone folder, snips and envelopes so I can stamp them to match the card.


A stamp a stack is where you as the demo (or whoever is hosting) would have a design made up, pieces and parts prepped, and you all mass produce the same card.


You know where to find me if that doesn't make sense.

I would have to say that this is mostly correct, but the whole point of the "shoebox" is that each person sits in one place, and the boxes (or buckets, or whatever container) get passed around the table. I wish I could get a regular shoebox swap going around here again, they were a lot of fun. We did potluck snacks as well.

contrapat- Your shoebox swap sounds like so much fun.

All this talk I think I might have done something similar years ago. I was in a swap where we did envies. We filled the envie with stamped images, ephemera, paper, etc to make cards. We sent our individual envies to our swap partner. Each envie had to be different. We were assigned two envies and we had to fill them with different things. That was such a fun swap. It was really neat and inspiring to see all the creations we made from each other's envie treasures.

We do shoebox swaps 4 or 5 times a year. We have a group called Bel Air Stampers, in Maryland. I make my card. I then cut all the supplies needed to make my card for 19 people (there are 20 people at our swaps). I then package Each envelope with the necessary items to make my card. All the boxes are on a table and you just go up and pull a box until you have done all the cards. I come home with 19 different cards and my original card. We bring food and break for lunch. It is a whole day thing and we do prizes and everything. We each pay $15 to cover the rental space and prizes. It is a wonderful time and a great way to try some different stamps and techniques. You get lots of new ideas. I have also found that stamps I though I might want, I realize I don't. Stamps I didn't think I wanted, I suddenly "need", LOL. Great thing to do to get stampers together. We have an amazingly talented group of stampers!

Am I the only one that is getting envious (in a nice positive way) of all the wonderful shoebox group stories? You ladies are so lucky. Please keep sharing them because I live vicariously through these stories.

Our stamp club does an after meeting class each month. Sometimes it is a "Shoebox" project. Since we have over 60 members, the participants are divided into groups of 4-5 or whatever seems reasonable. Each person in the group makes a card and the parts for that card for as many other people as are in the group. Then one, by one, each person explains how to make her card. So each person goes home with at least as many cards as there are other people in the group. So, if a large number participate (over 20), not everyone will end up with all the cards, but just those that are in their group. Too much to ask people to make stuff for 35 or more people, but still enable this fun activity to happen. There is a sign up for this a month ahead of time, so everyone has tome to prepare.

Shoebox parties are so much fun. We have a small group of ladies who get together ever so often and have a all-day party with lunch - 10 am to 5 pm. There are a large variety of skill levels presented. Although it was required to have 1 shoebox with all the components and directions to make a card for each person at the party, I have, just for the fun of it, provided up to 4 shoeboxes (4 different cards). During a couple of the parties, we also have giveaways -- people bring supplies or stamps they wanted to share or no longer wanted. For example, my husband who used to work in a computer warehouse collected clear plastic clamshell boxes and CD envelopes and brought them home for me. They just threw them away, so I had lots to share. Another lady, whose uncle owned a printing shop, brought several boxes offcuts of cardstock paper to share. Another lady had gone to a garage sale on the last day where she hit the jackpot in stamps. She bought a huge box of rubber stamps for $25.00 and she brought that to us to share. She had taken out what she wanted already.

The friend who purchased the stamps at the garage sale and I used to get together to stamp once a week. I was there for several hours and we had decided once to see how many cards we could make in the one sitting. The most I made that evening was 50 -- all the same design and I made them factory assembly style. They were blank inside and good for most any occasion. I believe that's what stamping a stack of cards would mean.

Although I have participated in several online atc and card swaps, I've not had any success with jam type of online round robins cause it always seemed to get stuck at one person's and never got passed on to the next, although the last atc club that I attended in person, we did do jam work there and it was great fun. Everybody donated three colored signed backgrounds in whatever colors we had previously agreed on and in the theme the same and brought components in those colors and theme. Each person took a background not their own and began to add components to it - one or two things. Then they tossed it back into the pile in the center of the table after signing it and took another background and did the same. Eventually all the cards had at least three persons who had worked on it. Then we took a photo of all the completed cards and had a drawing to choose one or more of the cards. I enjoyed that a lot.
