Hi Glad you made it!!!

I made some ATC's for some of my other on-line friends as RAK's for Christmas. I raided their blogs and photobuckets to find photos of them, I printed them out and embellished the ATC.
Have a look here to see what I mean!My Blog
So I got to thinking that I would like to hold a swap with the POD members!
Rules
    Cut a piece of card measured 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches
    Take a self potrait shot (to tie in with the POD challenge)
    Crop it to fit on the piece of card (ATC) (I cropped mine to 2cm by 3cm)
    Decorate/embellish the ATC.
    Make this ATC for the amount of people that sign up eg 10 sign-ups 10 ATC's (rem to make an extra one for yourself to keep)
    Send all the ATC's (expect the one you are keeping for yourself!).
    I will do the swap and then post them back to you!


WHAT I DO TO MAKE MY ATC'S
I use any type/colour of cardstock I can lay my hands on, A4, 12x12, 8x8, 6x6, even scrap card cut 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches!

What I do is:
Cut 2 pieces 2.5 x 3.5,
Use one for the front (embellishments, photos, etc)
One for the back for Information Bought desgin - My Desgin
Then stick the two together and you get quite a strong ATC. This method is also usefull if you want to hid the "mess" at the back of the card, (brads, ribbon and fiber ends, etc).

ATC's are great for using up your scraps!!! You can embellish the atc with whatever you wish! Only rules are it must be 2.5 x 3.5 inches and include a photo of yourself!!!


INFORMATION FOR THE BACK OF ATC'S


Title (What ever you want to name it)
Created by (Can be your login name or your real name or both)
Date (The date you made it)
Info (What I put here is what swap it belongs to, eg POD challenge Atc Swap)
E-mail (You don't have to include this if you don't want to)
No ... of .... (eg 1 of 10, 2 of 10, 3 of 10, etc..)

If you can include the town,state,village of where you live on the ATC that would be great, back or front!!!

POSTAGE
Because this swap is an International swap, I have found out (thanks Mr.Google) that US players can purchase an International Reply Coupon(IRCs) from their post office and I can then exchange it for UK stamps to post the swaps! If you can include an IRC (one should be enough) it would be appreciated, if not don't worry I will cover the cost! I will spread out the sending back of ATCs so it dosn't cost ££££ in one go!

The timeline will depend on how many sign ups - eg 10 sign-ups I was thinking about a month.

Just thought it might be fun, and a nice way of remembering all the odd/even/loonies/good and bad children on the challenge!

If you are interested sign up here I will keep it open for a week and then we can get started in making the ATCs!

Don't know what an ATC is?? Click on the following links

Art in your pocket
Artist Trading Cards
ATC

A gallery of ATC's

I am sorry if this isn't explained properly, I'm not very good with words and find it hard to explain myself sometimes. Point out something you don't understand and I will try again.
If help is needed I will be happy to help!

All you have to do is SIGN UP FOR THE SWAP! If at anytime you don't want to play anymore that is fine, just PM me so I can remove your name from the list!

This link will be in my signature!

YES!!! MMMEEEE!!!! I love this idea and I think it will be FABULOUS!

I joined a similar group when I first started sb.com and still have the photo cards the ladies shared on my craft board. I'd LOVE to have all your beautiful faces to look at and enjoy too!!!

Also, thanks so much Helena 1) for doing this and 2) for asking me first - it was so sweet of you to inquire if it was OK to post on "my thread". Heck, it's not MY thread - it's ALL OF OURS! Feels like home doesn't it??

I'll give it a try, never made on before. Should be something I could do. Did you want the envelopes to be stamped? Should we include a little extra for postage?

Thanks for the interest, ATCs are quite easy to make, and they can become addictive, you can make them as easy (The RAKs that I made) or as difficult as you want!


Okay I have been googling to find out about this!

What I found is that you can purchase an International Reply Coupon (IRC), which I then can exchange for UK stamps to send your ATC's back to u! If the cost is any higher than the coupon don't worry I will pay for that! If you can't find an IRC, I will pay for the postage, but it will mean I will have to spread out the sending of ATCs, as it would be easier on my pocket instead of sending them all in one go!!! Is that okay?

It's the first one that is the hardest comming up with the layout and once you made the first one all the others will be simple peasy, as you just follow the layout that you have done on the first one!

I would like to do this. The card itself is this measurement right? 2.5 x 3.5 inches. Is that the size you used in the one you put your picture on?

Hi Lisa E, Thats what I thought, that I would love some kind of memory of all the fun and the fantastic people that I have met through this challenge, and an ATC is small and personal to the person who made it, which makes it all the more specail!!!

Thanks for playing!!

And what a fab idea of having one of Sven and GJ!! Will have to ask Erjaan and Susanne how they would like to do this!!!

I would love you to play too!!! Well you can start anytime you want, if you want to get the ATC made, then you just have to copy it for each person who joins!!!

I will announce how many players there will be, but I have been adding people to the first post as they join, so you could always keep an eye on that!!!

Yipee, I was hoping we could get at least 10 people to play and we have reached that target!!! As some people are only now seeing the challenge, I will keep sign-ups open until Sunday!!!

If anyone wants to make a start on the ATCs, please do! As I said once you have the first one made, it's easy after that you just have to copy that one for every player! At the moment the time-line is a month to make 10 ATC's, which will make the post date 16th February!!! If we get more players I can push the post date out!!!

A question If we get players who want to join in near the end of the month, would everyone be prepared to make more ATCs for those people! It wouldn't be so bad for the players who have joined at the start, but for the late players it could mean that they have 10+ ATCs to make before the post date?? I think a week would have to be the cut off point though, or this could go on forever!!!

Please let me know!!!

And to all those who have joined THANKS!!!!

FOR SURE I think we should let everyone play that wants to. In fact I think you should re-post on the thread in BIG BOLD LETTERS that they still can sign up and maybe list who is playing so they wake up and want to come PLAY!

Hello Ladies,

I will PM everyone with my address, next week!!!

Hope you will enjoy this challenge and have some fun!

I will post another reminder on Lynn's POD challenge 2 days before it is going to close!!!

I've seen conflicting ideas, and since I've never done these before, I just wanted to make sure...Whose picture are we supposed to put on the cards? Ourselves, or the people we are sending them to?

I guess I should get some started as well. Although, this might be the wrong month for me to do them. With my bathroom renovations, I had to empty the storage closet in my scraproom so FIL could get to the plumbing. And all that stuff is in front of my desk.

Well, as long as simple is fine, I should be able to come up with something. 13 of the same thing isn't too hard to do.

I'm hoping that no one really minds super simple. We've been reno-ing all day today, and there is tons more to do before we can start fixing all we "wrecked" I can't even get to my scrap table at the moment.

Wow - did you see what SuperAllyFan made? Check out this ATC wallet




Oh drat , this was going to be an RAK for each person from me, but now in case anyone is gonna make one, don't as I will be making one for each player!!!!

After seeing SuperAllyFan's one, that shall be the one I will be making! Any other ones were so complicated, this one is so simple but so pretty!!!

Hi Ladies,

Something I forgot to mention, at the start d'oh!!!

No need to panic and if you can't do it do not worry, it does not really matter or is that important, but could you include somewhere on the ATC where you are from????? Just the name of the state or county! If you can't fit it in don't worry!!!!!

I'm done and I've got my IRC mailing slip. Had a bit of trouble with getting it. At first the postal worker said no such thing, never heard of it, don't have one. Then he got his supervisor who said they did have one. The postal worker said in his 2 years of working there, he had never before sold one. Learn something new everyday! But I do have it. So let me know what is the next step. Am I asupposed to post a photo of it?

Hi everyone sorry I have been MIA, but I have this cold for nearly 2 weeks, and over the last few days any chance I get I am sleeping!!!!! Still not feeling too good, wish it would go!!!

I am closing this challenge on Sunday, but I will send my address to everyone so you are ready to go. I would wait till Monday to post just in case we get someone else. I am posting a final reminder in the POD thread!

Please don't panic if you don't have them all done, the deadline is still the end of Feb start of March to post!

At the moment the total ATC's you have to make is 13 - 12 to swap and 1 to keep for yourself!

I personally can't wait to see them!!!!

OOh I am sorry you had to go to so much trouble!!!

I just googled on what was the easiest way for USA citzens to send SAE's!!!

I would rather you wait until everyone receives their swaps so it is a surprise!!!

Once everyone recieves their swaps, I can post everyone's in my gallery, or each of us post our own!!! We can decide nearer to the time, if that's okay???

I had forgotten the deadline for sending these in, but am glad to discover we still have the rest of Feb! *WHEW* ...

I've scheduled a four-hour block of scrapping time with a dear friend for this Friday, so will get these made then.

Can't wait to see everyone's ATCs !

I have finished the fronts of mine but did not have a place to put my town. I tried to change the original design to include it but it just didn't work.

I am hoping to get these mailed out Monday or Tuesday. I loved doing them and can't wait till you get them.
