For those that have participated in this before, you know that you are welcome to join again. Newbies need to have a reference to get in. Sorry but I will not have my ladies burnt or get crappy cards and work back. I want someone to vouch that your hand mades are good quality.

I have recently been sent a pm that the above post is one that makes NEWBIEs feel bad, this wasn't my intent, but we all know that we have had NEWBIEs and SEASONED swappers burn us, as stated above if you have someone to vouch for you or you post your work in your gallery then this is irrevelant to you and you shouldn't take it personally. Now if you do take it personally then you don't know me that well. Everyone here that knows me, knows that I am a loving, sensitive person and love my FRIENDS here. I was once a newbie here and posted my stuff before I mailed it so the hostess knew that my stuff was good for a beginner or newbie in the swaps. Sorry for offending anyone unintentionally.

  • Quote:
April to July Round of Card Makin Mama's swap:




I am doing the Card Making Mama swap again, but this time if will be different. We will have a 12 ladies sign up(or less, but not more then that), 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 JULY 31st, 2013. Its on a Wednesday. And I will swap them 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: April-July
1. 12 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 number of ladies(don't include ones for yourself): all different and ones, the ladies will post on the thread what type of cards they would like to receive and try to make a variety for each ladies, don't give her 5 of the same types of cards.

3. Goodie bag for each of the number of the 12 ladies, $1 NIP scrapbooking items, but most ladies include several $1 items or some hand-mades as well. Just like an embellishment baggie or goodie bag.

4. You will have approx. 3 month's to make the total of 60 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 4 xtra stamps, and DC. We don't want our precious cards getting lost and losing all that stuff.Please mail priority and insure your cards, so if lost that the Post office has to reimburse you for the total amount that is lost to you.

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 the same amount of cards back no matter what. And you get same amount of goodie bags back.

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

8. All cards should have envelopes with them. This is a card and envies swap.

9.Please on the cards have them embellished and/or techniqued at least 3-4 times.Stamped image, inked, bling and chipboard..that qualifies as 4 things...add more if you like, but not less
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1.DUE DATE: NEW DUE DATE Hostess caught poison ivy, sumac or oak...doesn't want to spread the rash via cards and mail. So the DUE date is 9/2/2013 which is a Monday.


2.Please include on what types of cards you like(list at least 3-4 different ones and colors you like. All occasion can mean Celebrate, Hi, a word saying on the front of the card, phrase, any kind of word really

3.Make cards with envies!


forgot to add ladies...please please bag your cards in quartz size or sandwich size baggies, so cards do not get bent or lose the embellishments on them. Post office is not gentle with packages ladies.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Group #1 Cards and Envies with participants themes of their choosing:

1. Hostess: Teen Birthdays(male and female), Adult Birthdays(male and female), Christmas, and All Occasion cards

12. smileneyz6: get well, just because, silly/fun, birthdays (kid-generic, male, female), and note cards with pictures (no sentiments on),religious sentiments are good too




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Now this is a second part on this swap, for those that don't like to make cards or want to create there own, but would like a front topper, they can sign up for this group of ladies.


1. Topper should be on cream or white card-stock if using a stamped image, you can add additional card-stock behind it and printed paper. The stamped image if you do choose to use, please either leave black and white or color it all the way. Don't leave it half colored in.
If you are using other materials for the topper and not a stamped image then think outside the box all you want, but please have it double matted for sturdiness.

2. We will have two groups of toppers. One with words only, like "Happy Birthday" or "Thank You" and the other group with words and images.

3. The Word toppers need to be bigger then 1 1/2 by 2 inches.

4. The word and image toppers should be at least 2 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches.

5. They need to make 4 toppers for each lady in the group. So if we have all 10 sign up, you will be making 40 toppers.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Group #2: Word Toppers

1. Hostess: Birthday, All Occasion, Christmas, Hello, Friendship

2. Toni: Toppers Ladies happy birthday, Child's birthday, thinking of you, thank you

3. TJCraftyWitch's Mom: Christmas, teen birthday(female and male, adult bday(male and female), All Occasion

4.Moonpuff: birthday, sympathy, anything silly, Just because. I love LOUD. I am a neon green type girl, so feel free to use the loud colors most people do not like LOL

5.

6.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~


Group #3: Word and Image Toppers

1. smileneyz6: I do not have a lot of stamps, though I am starting to build my collection again, so any non-holiday themes are great!! Not a fan of deep purple, but I LOVE pink. Oh, I do really like stamps that look like a 'picture' rather then just a stand along image for instance...but I will be happy with either. Religious sentiments are good too.

2. scrapwriter: hello, anything silly, Christmas, get well, happy thoughts

Oooh...this sounds like fun! I am new to the boards - have completed 3 swaps and am currently working on the scavenger hunt. So, I am hoping to be able to join one of these eventually.
The way I read it is - 5 cards per person so, depending on the number of ladies, it could be 60 cards? Wow - that's AWESOME!

Toppers Ladies happy birthday, Childs birthday, thinking of you, thank you,


60 cards is a little much for me right now but would be willing to try it next time.

The Toppers are they suppose to be white as well or can we use deco paper?

Yes Toni the toppers are to be white or cream if you use stamped images, and then add color to the back ground, but if you are using other mediums feel free to think outside of the box.

I will update the thread ladies.

3. Goodie bag for each of the number of ladies, or (number inserted here) $1 NIP scrapbooking items, but most ladies include several $1 items or some handmades as well. Just like an embellishment baggie or goodie bag.

I edited it and added that stuff in the red. Thanks for asking, I love and prefer ladies to ask instead of being confused and not knowing...I also put that in Red on the instructions so it sticks out now. Thanks Babigirl.

For someone that wants those yes, you can make them other ones, you don't have to make the teen ones. Thanks for asking. Thats why I tell folks to pick 3,4 or 5 different themes so it gives others a variety to pick from to make them..

I'm so excited about this swap. There are so many talented ladies participating. Looking forward to receiving so many beautiful cards and toppers.

The themes I would like to receive are hello, anything silly, Christmas, get well, sympathy. Same for the toppers.

If I could also say that anything goes with the themes that I would like. Surprise me. Just no birthday. I participate in a card swap at a crop I attend twice a year and have enough bday cards for the rest of my life.
Thanks again tonya for accepting me even though I am new. Sorry for the misspell.

A topper is almost like a title would be, but use it on a card, so you make it to fit on a card. It can be square, rectangle, circle or Oval. Depends on the shape of the stamp and how the lady want to cut it. It just needs to be double matter for sturdiness.

Although this is a title, you can use it for a card as well.

this one is mine...

Here is one from another lady on the board, she does great work, its not a word one, but you could easily have the word "Love" to it or whatnot...

Well, the card category is almost full, and I am not up for that big of a challenge just yet! But it will be fun to watch what everyone else does.

I'd like to take a spot in the image toppers. I hope somebody else signs up for that! I don't have a lot of stamps, so it would be great to get these back.

TJ- if you want you can switch me from the cardtopper to the cardtopper and image since there is only one signed up so far. I dont mind if it will help.

Moon think of titles, but with card sayings on them, along with a little ribbon, ink, bling or flower. Or even the word stamps that have something about the type of card that others want. I will make one soon and post it in my gallery.

I am going to mark this swap full/active.

that last spot in the cards is calling my name...LOUDLY. But I'm on the fence. It scared the crud out of me to think about making 60 cards...but now I'm thinking I could do it. hmmm. I will be back in the morning with my finale decision

ug. I pressed the wrong button and lost the entire post...so lets try this again!

TJ, I will happily take the last spot for cards. I am very excited to take of this challenge, and can't wait!

I would like the following; get well, just because, silly/fun, birthdays (kid-generic, male, female), and note cards with pictures (no sentiments on).

For toppers I would like images!! I do not have a lot of stamps, though I am starting to build my collection again, so any non-holiday themes are great!! Not a fan of deep purple, but I LOOVE pink. Oh, I do really like stamps that look like a 'picture' rather then just a stand along image for instance...but I will be happy with either

Thanks!!! Now I have good reason to go stamp shopping. woohooo.

JCI hope everyone has a great weekend. I don't know if I ever mentioned it but I love neon colors! I just bought neon green, pink, and blue zing. Can't wait to use it.

Happy scrapping!

Cant wait to see them. I plan on working on mine when I am in the mountains this weekend for a crop. So looking forward to 4 days 3 nights of nothing but scrapping, chatting, eating, and of course tons of laughing.
I was told they now have wi-fi but incase there is a problem and I don't get to check in or respond to any posts this is why. I am leaving Thurs 4/18 and wont be back until late Sun night.
I know that if I can't get on this site I will be having some serious withdrawal by Sun night. lol

Quick question: Since there is only 2 of us in the word/image topper does that mean I am only making 4 for the other person? Or do I make 4 of the word only ones as well for those ladies? Trying to get my list of projects together before I pack everything up.

Since there is only two, can't we swap all 8 with each other? I was hoping more people would sign up for that one. That was my fav category!!

Have fun in the mountains! I have never gone on a scrap event like that, but I would SO love to. Maybe when the convention comes around this next time, I will get a chance to go and take some classes.

Oh, and I stopped in to let you all know I will be gone for a few days and not able to check in. My Uncle passed away, and I will be heading to Oregon in the morning. Not sure exactly when I will be returning, but sometime this weekend.

P.S. whomever likes neon should add it to the list, that way those of us with the ZING powders know who to use it for

I would be happy to get neon colors on the blank 'generic' (note/just because cards), or the silly/fun cards.

Tonya I'm very bummed I missed this. Can you put me on a standby and if someone drops out let me know and I will join? I love cards and do them more than any other type of craft.

ohhhhhhhhhh... I am so glad you posted that! It is like the layers on top of the card. It is totally NOT what I was thinking.

I was way overthinking it.

This, I love

Excited to get started working on these now.

THANK you for posting this

Yeah you can add more to them if you like, its solely on you. Just at like what was suggested. And ladies if your pals don't care if you use colored printed paper for their card toppers then its cool. It just harder to see if some folks use dark printed paper and black ink for a stamped image.
I am glad that everything is cool. I am getting started on mine soon.
