Hello and Happy Monday!
I am hosting a few swaps. Please read this entire post because after the swap information are some other things you might want to know about!
If you want to join please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, you can join one or all swaps. I will be happy to give you my mailing information via email. Don’t hesitate to ask questions.
Before I get to the swaps, I want to remind you guys that with these swaps will be a few prizes. Not going to tell you yet, so you can get creating and win some fab-o stuff.
Hello my fellow stampers!
So here we go. Read each item carefully. No flaking. The swaps are due at seprate times.
Open to newbies, all levels of stampers and hopefully there will be something for everyone.
All swaps should be in a zip type baggie, and include a self addressed stamp envelope with same postage as mailing plus 2 stamps. Yes, I can return all swaps in one envelope, but make sure that the sending and receivng envelope are large enough for swappers who make larger items.
You’ll understand this part more when you continue to read about the swaps. Please keep in mind the ‘theme’ of each swap. If you have questions ask them BEFORE you sign up for a swap. Any stamp company, embellishments, accessories. Your choice.
ATC’s. Artist trading cards, these little cards measure 3 1/2″ X 2 1/2″ you can generally get 10 from a piece of 8 1/2″ X 11″ card stock.
Make 10 ATC’s, receive 10 back. Any theme. Sign up from April 13 until April 20th. The swap is due in my hands by May 1. Please do your best work, that you will be proud of.
All swap items in each catagory need to be the same. This will make it easier on me to swap them back out.
“Just Buggy”. Full cards no fronts, no envelopes. Must include at least one stamped image of some kind of bug or insect. This is a 5/5 card swap. Sign ups from April 13 until April 25th. Do your best work, work you will be proud of. Due in my hands by May 5.
Animal Swap. Full cards no fronts, no envelopes. Must include at least one stamped image of an animal. This is a 5/5 swap. Sign ups from April 13 until April 26. Due in my hands by May 10.

Boxes and Bags
Make 5 and get 5 back boxes or bags. Must be able to collapse the bags for shipping and they must have at least one stamped image. They do not need ‘stuffing’ of any kind. Sign ups April 13 until April 26, due in my hands by May 26.
I belong to splitcoast stampers. It is a free online stamping community. Here is a link to an example of card candy click here.
make 5 packages of card candy and receive 5 back.
Card candy are like the little kits you get from Michaels that have stickers and other embellishments the user can apply to the front of their card. Please do not join this swap unless you have looked at a picture of card candy.
Sign ups April 13 until April 26, due in my hands by May 28.
Images should be stamped on a piece of high quality white card stock in staz on ink. They should not exceed 4 X 6″. Stamp 10 images and receive 10 back. You can do more than one set. Sign up from April 13 until April 26, due in my hands by May 30.
If you participate in all swaps, the final deadline to receive the swaps will be June 5. Giving ample time for completion of the swaps and mailing.
I hope alot of people will participate in at least one swap. Sign up minimum of 5 people per swap. I’ll be posting in Mid April who is swapping and if I have enough players.
I thought I’d post a picture of me with my two page spread in Scrap and Stamp Arts Magazine. Much to my surprise and delight, I came home to a check from Scott Trade for my layout! Not only did they send me 3 copies of the magazine and gave me a discount on the ones I sent to family and friends, I got a little $$ for the submission. It was a first for me, hopefully not last. I’m just thrilled. You can check out their publications here.
No new blog candy post today, but keep checking back with me. My web blog recommendation this week is 1morestamp.blogspot.com. Brycia is a Stampin Up Demo that I have known for many years. I think you will enjoy her creativity.
Happy Stamping, hope to see you join my swaps!
