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!

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!

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 = )

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

Hi Marci,

Just a question about the winter ATC. When I think winter, I can't help but think Christmas. Does it matter if it is a tiny bit Christmasey? Like this one?

O.K. Finally after much hesitation and a pile of cuts that have been sent to their eternal resting place, I have come up with the "More shades of Red than White" ATC. Lol! Could not help myself and had to add gold to give it a nice rich look, it was looking really bland. Hope that's O.K.

Thanks Crystal for your kind comment. I have a wireless mouse too, and what I've done is I bought a battery charger and some rechargeable batteries and I keep it near my desk, that way when I need to swap them out it isn't so bad. = ) Can't wait to see what your ATC's look like!

Great cards ladies!

I especially love the Hawaii ones -- my favorite place on earth! DH and I have been there 3 times and love it more each time we go. Well . . . then we had kids, and now only visit there in our dreams!!!

Crystal, if your wireless mouse is one of the newer ones, check on the bottom of it and see if it has an on/off lever. If it does, be sure to turn it "off" when you're not using the computer, otherwise, it's still sending/receiving signals from the laptop and will continue to drain the battery -- I learned that the hard way, too. I went through loads of batteries before I figured out it had an on/off switch!

I love rechargeable batteries, but I don't have the size I need for the mouse yet. On my list of things to buy.

The mouse DOES have a switch, which is funny you mention, because my DH is after me all the time for not turning it off :/ Now I am paying for it by having to use this irritating little laptop mouse. grr.

I couldn't resist, and began working on one of my state ATC's, before I completed my other swap work. The only thing that is bugging me about the cards, is wanting to make an extra card of each design so that I can keep a sample. I hate duplicating my work when it's meant to be 1 of 1.

Done checking in, going to finish my yogurt so I can go back to my scrap work. YEY.

I had 2 wireless mouse for 2 different laptop I'm using on daily basis.

One of it Microsoft mobile mouse 3500 limited edition - this artsy design tiny piece ate batteries a lot more than the other one, I changed the battery 3 times in only about 5months.

The other mouse I really recommend is Logitech M310 - I know it's bigger and plain black&grey design, but I had never change the battery yet since I purchased it about almost a year ago and it's still working fine.

My mouse was purchased on black friday, nice and cheap. HA. I'm going to try the rechargeables, but I also might look into getting a better quality mouse. Well, I finally found the missing batteries, and it is back up and running. We shall see how long they last!

Well...What I do Lula....is since my 3 are similar enough I do 1/3, 2/3, 3/3...I have only been doing this a couple of mos here...and that is what I noticed too!

What do you say ladies?

If they are part of a theme, say for state/country and you are supposed to make 3, then I would do 1 of 3.

This does bring up a question I have. I really want to make duplicates of each diff. design I make. So, for the state category I am going to make 3 different but similar cards, and then a duplicate of each, with a total of 6. So this would be numbered 1 of 6?

the banana rocks.

question? how in the world do you add the icon to your post? when i click the little circle of the smiley I want, and then preview my post, nothing shows up! I have tried dragging the smiley to my post but then it shows up as a hyper link when I try to preview the post.



HEY! I just noticed the little blue smile face in the blue icon boxes right above the response box, and those work. but I still want to know how to do it the other way, which is faster!

Thanks...

HI Lula,

Just in case you don't catch up with Marci, here it is in a nutshell.

Take your mouse up to the tab that says gallery but don't click it. Let the menu drop down. From the menu click on add images.

Click on the little choose file button and select a file from your computer to upload. Click on the little button that says upload and wait. When the pic shows up on screen, name it, and tick relevant boxes, add description etc. then press submit image button. It will take a few seconds but will show up in your gallery.

Now to add it to the post, you do this. Click on the pic in your gallery you would like to add. On the bar on the left of the pic, just under the Pin it and Tweet buttons there is a hyperlink that says link / embed image. Click on that and it will bring up a sub window. Inside the little pale blue box tick IMG CODE and then copy the gobbledygook in the little window that says:
Copy and Paste the Embed Code Below:
To copy it all you need to do is click it to select (it will automatically highlight the whole lot) and then copy using control c or command c for a mac. Once you copy it, head over to where you want to post it. And just paste it in the text body box of your message using control v or command v for a mac. Then click the add post button and the image will be there.
Hope this helps! = )

Cheers,

Jen

couldn't you send them directly to the birthday people? it looks like they would do fine in a regular envelope, with maybe a thick piece of something to keep them flat, otherwise just send them next month as Marci said. either way will work! (i have no problem sharing my address. just don't stalk me. hehe.)
