August swaps sign up.....NOW OPEN

ok this months theme isnt really a theme but to use KRAFT on all swaps(embellies atc's and stamped images), the shipping tag swap is to just stamp an image on a shipping tag(if you cant get them you could make them from cardstock or even manilla folders).....put your name down if you are interested in joining....just leave a comment with your name and which swaps you are in for

1. Amanda (all 4 swaps)
2. Chris M (all 4 swaps)
3. Jacqui (all 4 swaps)

8. Mel (all 4 swaps)
9. Jan (embellies and stamped images)
10. Kerri S (all 4 swaps)

Embellishments..... make these using KRAFT(or similar coloured c/s, or even cardboard if you dont have kraft)...make them smallish(no bigger than say 4inx4in for postage reasons

ATCs.....these are little cards 2.5in x 3.5 in.....make using KRAFT as the base

Stamped Images....stamp images on KRAFT card, about 6in x 4 in(again a small size for no reason other than its easier to post)..just stamp as many images on it as you can fit)

Shipping Tags..... stamp an image(larger images work better) on shipping tags(if you cant get them, you can make them from manilla folders or a similar coloured c/s...

for all swaps you make 1 for everyone in the group....please include a 1.20 stamped self addressed envelope so once i have them all i divvy them up and you get 1 of everyones the case if we get more than 10 in a particular swap, we go round robin style, where you just make 10 no matter how many are in it, and you get a random 10 back(so we dont end up having to make a tonne of them)

Sign up will close 9th August....i will post up the final numbers on the 9th, and you will have until the END of AUGUST to get them to me.....let me know if you are having problems keeing to the deadline(communication is the key to a successful swap)
and email me if you need my address(email addy is at the top of the screen)

i'm receiving some gorgeous items for the GARDEN swap...

the stuff we are going to get back from this swap is amazing, such gorgeous stuff, once i receive a few more i will post up a pic.....
so far i have received

Chris W's

on Monday the 26th i will post up the next theme(although the next one isnt really a theme)to get sign up me if you want to know now what it is

Oh and one other month i was thinking of adding a 'shipping tag' swap, where you buy or make shipping tags(they are 5cents from the newsagents or you could make them out of cardstock or manilla folders) just stamp and ink them. bigger stamps work better than smaller ones, you would make 1 for everyone in the group and you get 1 of everyones back......let me know your thoughts

1. Amanda(all 3 swaps)
2. Melissa(all 3 swaps)
3. Chris M (all 3 swaps)
4. Jacqui Miles (all 3 swaps)
5. Jan(embellies and stamped images)

7. Shazza (all 3 swaps)
8. Chris W (all 3 swaps)
9. Chloe (embellies and stamped images)
10. Karina (atc and embellies)

IMPORTANT has come to my attention that some of us dont want to make a tonne of these swap items, so what i was thinking was........if by chance we get more than 10 members in any swap we will do it round robin style where by you would make 10 items no matter how many joined, but you wouldnt get 1 of everything back, you would get your own plus a random 9 back, that way if 20 sign up you would only have to make does that sound??
