next theme for swaps.................BUTTONS

ok the theme for the next round of swaps is on the embellies and atc cards use buttons somewhere....obviously the theme doesnt apply to the stamped images or shipping tags(these, you just stamp images on card and shipping tags).......ok i will leave sign up open til monday the 6th september......if there are more than 10 in any of the swaps we will go round robin style so you dont have to make too many......and these will need to be received by me by the END of SEPTEMBER(email me the addy is at the top of the screen if you need my address) and please include a 1.20 stamped self addressed envelope so i can post back to you(please note.. please use a large envelope if you are in all 4 swaps) because all the items dont fit in a small envelope....thanks and have are the details

EMBELLIES please stick to the theme for these and make them smallish(for postage reasons)

ATC's cards....these are little 2.5 x 3.5 inch cards that you embellish as per the theme....

STAMPED IMAGES.... stamp images on 6x4 inch pieces of card just as many as you can fit(i choose this size cos its easy to post

SHIPPING TAGS.....just stamp an image(large images work best) onto shipping tags(you can make them if you dont have any)

Final numbers for August swap(kraft)

ok, here are the final numbers for the kraft swap.......a couple of the swaps have gone to round robin style, where you only make 10 and you will get your own plus a random 9 back...due to the large number(more than 10 doing them).....that way we dont have to make a mountain of them...some people think 10 is their limit) here are the numbers

Embellies 10 (round robin style)
Atc's 10 (round robin style)
Stamped Images 10
Shipping Tags 11 (i thought with the shipping tags, since we are only stamping on the tags, we will stick with the 11 because they arent time consuming to make)


Embellishments.....use Kraft to make these(kraft is a cardboard coloured cardstock, if you dont have it use a similar colour or even cardboard would be ok)...try and keep the size smallish due to postal reasons)

ATCs....again use kraft...these are little cards measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches(size is very important).....and try and make them double cardstock thickness so they arent too flimsy

Stamped Images.... stamp images on 6x4 inch size of kraft card...try and keep the size of the card that size because you dont know what size envelope the others are sending for return post

Shipping Tags.... stamp an image(larger images work best)on to shipping tags(if you cant get them, you can make them)

for all the swaps you are in, you make 1 per person in the to me by the END of AUGUST (email me if you are having trouble keeping the deadline)....remember to include a 1.20 stamped self addressed envelope for me to return them to you....
NOTE...if you are in all 4 swaps, please use a large envelope, because that many items dont fit in the smaller envelopes.....

thanks and have fun.....any questions, and dont hesitate to ask away
