Hi, I'm Michelle and I love to make cards! I also love to get new stuff to play with; especially kits because it's lots of stuff at once! So, I want to host my first swap ever. I want to do it monthly, hopefully we can keep it going forever. I am flexible with the parameters but here is what I am thinking.

It is sooo busy now so this will begin in January. The kits will have to be mailed by Jan. 10. I will pair people up randomly and send out a pm with your partner's address. I'm thinking that there will be a theme for each month's kit. You must post of photo of your kit when you receive it and of course share what you make with us! Our next big holiday is Valentine's day and that is the theme for January's card kit. Each kit should include enough goodies to make 3-4 cards. I'm sure we all have plenty of Valentine's stuff in our stash or if anyone is so inclined you can go out and buy new stuff. I have a ton of stickers that I have never opened but of course fell in in love with and *had* to have. You can include half of a 12 x 12 pp or stickers, or just a few rub-on sentiments, etc.

I think the kits should include some of each:
-cardstock or card base (can be shaped, i.e. heart base)
-ribbon
-stickers
-rub-ons
-brad
-pp
-alphas

Let me know if you have any suggestions and ask me anything you want to...within reason, of course! LOL

I hope this will be fun!

Let me know if you have any questions. Have your kits in the mail by January 10th. However, Canadian mail seems to be slow, so if you are sending something to or from there, please try to get it out sooner. Have fun! I'm so excited everyone is enjoying this!

Yeah, my mail sucks a little bit. Usually takes 2 weeks from the time you go postal. Sorry about that!

I am going to add the list to the first post. I will post your swap buddy and pm their mailing addresses by Jan. 5th. That should give everyone enough time to wind down from the holidays and get excited about a new one!
That reminds me, can you start PMing me your mailing addresses? Thanks!
