Hi Everyone! Welcome to the January 2013 ATC Swap! Anna has “retired” from this challenge so I am going to try hosting it! Bare with me it’s my first month!

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE SIGNING UP!! ONLY HIGH END CARDS PLEASE!! NO FLAKERS!

This is a you make three (3) you get three (3) swap in each catefory you sign up for.(Make them similar). DUE DATE: JANUARY 31...(SEE BOTTOM OF THIS POST FOR BONUS BIRTHDAY INFO)HAVE FUN & please post a picture of each category you complete so that we can enjoy them!

THE BASICS:
* You May combine with other challenges!
* Each card must be 2 ½ x 3 ½
* Please back each card with a heavy piece of cardstock or thin chipboard/cardboard.
* Please include the following information on the back of your cards:
1. Your Name, Your sb.com screen name
2. Your State or Country
3. Title of your card
4. # of card (1/3 or 1 of 3 etc)
5. Date Made

THE NITTY GRITTY:

*PLEASE DO YOUR BEST WORK -- ONLY SEND IN CARDS THAT YOU WOULD BE HAPPY TO RECEIVE IN RETURN. It is not always possible but I will try my best to swap like for like -- both in style and in effort. Bottom line: Send cards that you are proud to put your name on and that you'd like to get in return!

I know sometimes life gets in the way, and if you find that you can't follow through with the swap, please just let me know. If you cannot complete the swap I would prefer you tell me instead of just throwing something together at the last minute to get it done -- it'll show in your cards!

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT JUST SLAP A STICKER ON A PIECE OF CARDSTOCK AND SEND IT!! THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE AND YOUR CARDS WILL BE RETURNED TO YOU!

MAILING:
* When your cards are done, please mail them to me (I’ll PM you my address).
* Please be sure to include a self-addressed, stamped envelope so I can mail your cards back to you. Please put the same amount of postage on your return envelope as you do on the mailing envelope. If you’re in doubt, please add an extra loose stamp. If I don’t use it, I’ll return it to you! If your envelope is in good condition, you only need to send a return label -- I'll reuse your envelope!
* If you don't send postage, I won't be able to return cards to you.
* Please be sure all your embellies are securely glued down.

Hi there,

Would this be suitable for Valentine's Day? Or for the shades of white and red?

Valentine's Day ATC By Jenniferd1009

Valentine's Day ATC 2 By Jenniferd1009

Valentine's Day ATC 3 By Jenniferd1009

If so, please sign me up for one group in whichever one you think. I will be posting these on Monday as I live in Australia, is that ok?

Also, do the 3 ATC's have to be the same? Or can they be different?

Many thanks,

Jen

Hi Everyone...MANY thanks for the great questions...this helps me alot!!!!!!!!!!!!-looking forward to hosting this month!!!

Jenniferd....you pick the category since shade of red/white don't have to be valentine's day-so it depends what you want in return!Yours are beautiful-either category is fine by me!

The 3 ATC's should be Similar--they dont have to be identical.

Australia is fine but you will have to find out about postage to me!...then I will get them back to you!

Where you live now-I clarified that above--it can be about anything to do with that...the state, the city...an attraction your area is known for...etc-you interpret!

Hi Marci,

Thanks for clarifying all that for me. I think I will go with Valentine's Day since mine look a fair bit Valentiney. Lol!
Are the ones I have posted pics of similar enough? If not let me know and I will just pick one and make another two the same.

I will post all this to you, but I have no US stamps for return postage, so if it is ok with you, can I pay some money into your paypal account for you to get some for me? Whatever stamps are left over from the money I send you, could just go in the envelope so I have some here for future swaps.

If I get a little extra time today, I might do a winter set too.

Cheers,

Jen = )

Hope you get a chance to do more!...thanks for joining in...!

Oops, My name is Crystal! I used to swap here back in '08 and had so much fun, after being gone a few years I am excited to be back, and everything is a lot different now so it's taking time to get used to all of it. It will be nice to have a 'group' to scrap with, and get feedback now and again. I've never had the chance to go to a scrap expo, and I don't have scrap friends, so this will be great. I am most excited about these cards!!

♥ me

I do have a question? I do many different forms of art besides scrapping. Is it ok to do the cards in other forms? mixed media, water colors, line drawing, pastels, etc.? I can't wait to get started on my cards
