Welcome to PAT #1. I've participated in this sort of ATC swap before on other swap sites and I have yet to see it on this site. If there is someone doing this swap, please let me know and I will remove it. Thanks so much for playing.

Pick-a-Theme is grouped, each group consists of five members. When you sign up for a spot in a group, you pick your theme. You will then make a card for each of the four other members of your group in their chosen themes and in return, they will each make a card for you in your chosen theme.

1. All cards MUST be 2 1/2 by 3 1/2. That’s a hard and fast rule of ATC’s.

2. There must be at least two layers of heavy card stock or watercolor paper.

3. No technique requirements. Use at least one embellishment. And, of course, do your best work.

4. Each card must be unique. You can not make the same card for two different people even if the themes are similar.

5. Regarding handwriting on cards: Unless you are a calligrapher or skilled at drawing fonts, if you don’t have a stamp that meets your need for text, a computer generated phrase or a word or phrase cut from a magazine is generally preferable to handwriting on an ATC.

6 . Please sign your cards! People like to know who to compliment and thank! At a minimum, please include the Group # and Theme, and your name and login ID on the back of the card. Any other information you would like to include is also welcome.

7. You will be placed in groups on a first come first serve basis and I will do my best to accomodate your requests for groups. If you want a specific group, please feel free to request it. I've added some groups to start out with.

8. Let's have some fun and create some art!!



Sign Up Deadline: April 1, 2011

In My Hands by: April 15, 2011

Mailed back out: as soon as possible after April 15, 2011


Please Note: Each swap position has an individually selected theme, so in this type of swap there are no angels and no substitutions so please keep that in mind when you sign up. Be fair to your fellow swappers, mail on time and if real life happens, please let me know ASAP.



Mailing:

Please send your cards in a baggie and include a self-addressed stamped envelope for cards to be returned to you. The amount of postage on your SASE should be at least the same amount that it takes to mail your cards to me and you need to use US postage stamps.

Include 2 extra stamps in case the cards coming back to you are heavier than the ones you send to me. Extra postage will be returned if not used. Canadian and non-USA participants may include US currency in lieu of postage. Please PM me when you are ready to mail your ATCs.

I'm interested in doing one group. Reread your post and realized I would have to fulfill each of my swap buddies theme. Got it! Please add me to your puzzle group and I'd like my theme to be dance - but please try and make it not too-too (tutu) cute!! Thanks!

I'd like Angels/Fairies and Victorian ladies. Let me know if that works.

Those topics are perfect. The great part about this swap is that you get to see how everyone else interprets your theme.

Hi !
I am "very new" to the ATC Cards. Just found out about them about a week ago from my sister. I would like to give this a try. Could I sign up for Misc. Catagory with a "Butterfly" theme. I have never done any type of scrap-booking and started my first book about two weeks ago - still working on it........
Thanks a bunch!
Joyce

OK that would be great. Everyone has to start out somewhere. Just want to make sure you realize that you won't be making any butterfly ATCs. You make 1 of everyone else's theme and you will receive 4 butterfly cards back.

You can do all three groups. Since you're new to ATCs, just wanted to make sure you understood the swap. You will be making everyone elses theme and they will be making yours.
