May-JULY Round of CMM new swap:

I am doing the Card Making Mama swap again, but this time if will be different. We will have a set amount of ladies sign up, but I think we will make cards for each person, send them to me and I will swap them out like a regular swap. That way if you don't send yours in, you don't get any and no one is shorted. Because those that don't send, the maker gets the set back as EXTRA.


Does this sound fair to you ladies that stayed throughout the swap? I will do it several times this year, we can have the same ladies rejoin or new ones added. I will give us like 2 and half months to work on all those cards they will be due to me middle JULY and swapped out within a week. Then the next round will start for another set of 10-12 or the same 10-12 ladies, they can switch the type cards they would like to receive too.

EDITED
So here is the break down of it: May-July
1. 11 ladies I hope( do not make cards for yourself, unless you want to, but do not send them to me, if you make ones for yourself...lol

2. make 5 cards for each of the 10 ladies(don't include ones for yourself): all different and ones that are from their mini survey

3. Goodie bag for each of the 10 ladies, or 10 $1 NIP scrapbooking items.

4. You will have approx. 3 month's to make the total of 50(will put total in when we know how many) cards. Mail them to me, I will swap them out in a weeks time. Mail them back to you.

5. Include the same amount of postage or cash (no metered postage) plus 3 xtra stamps, and DC. We don't want our precious cards getting lost and losing all that stuff.

6. If for any reason someone doesn't mail their stuff in to me, you ladies get back the extra set of cards. This way you get 50 cards back no matter what. And you get 10 goodie bags back.

7. No one gets cheated out of cards and we get through the rounds faster too.

8. NEW RULE because I failed to put it on here and I forgot so sorry ladies. But all cards should have envelopes with them. This is a card and envies swap.

DUE DATE: July 14th, 2012. Saturday. Due by this date, will wait three days after and then swap them out.

Sending survey out to the ladies this round, please get the surveys back to me by Friday, so I can compile them and send them all to you via pm, so you know what colors and types cards the ladies like.

You will mail all the cards to me and I swap them out, it saves on postage and no one gets flaked on or gets less cards. Because if the people that signed up don't send their cards, you just get back extra sets that you made for them.

Last round we had total of ten ladies, you had to make 5 per person. so you made 45 cards in like 3 months time. plus make 9 lil goodie bags. You dont have to make cards for yourself unless you want to and you of course don't send yours. We had two ladies that never sent theirs, so everyone got their two sets back that they made for them, but we all got 45 cards in the end. Plus loads of goodie bags and NIP items. The ladies are all great here and we are all at different styles of cards and how we make them.
The ladies are great. I hope we get 12 ladies, but if we only have 9-10 sign up or less, we are good. I am taking sign ups til this coming friday and then I am sending everyone the list of ladies with all the surveys on it.

We give ask the swappers what colors they like and dislike, so you get a general idea of the colors they use. Like if someone hates yellow they are not going to want a bunch of bright yellow cards. And most folks pick 3-5 different types of cards they want. So you can make them a variety of them.
Only a few this round want like all xmas cards, or birthday cards.
But yes everyone asks for different cards types and stuff, this is like how we did it before but we sent them out one at a time per person..

When do you plan on closing the sign-ups?
I have tons of swap stuff I need to start using and I want to start winding down on some of my other swaps. Card making is still foreign to me, so this might be good practice. Does any of that make sense?

I'm sorry, I accidentally deleted the email with the survey in it.

Okay I added the survey to the thread so that everyone has it, I believe that I only need two surveys from the ladies and then I will compile them and send them to all of you via PM Saturday morning.
