Sign Up will stay open til the Monday the 11th October and you will have til the END of October to get them to me(email me if you need my address)

info on swaps.....

ATCs....these are little cards measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches you embellish any which way you wish. please if you can make these double cardstock thickness so they dont end up too flimsy, and write your details on the back

Embellishments....... make these to fit the theme in this case Vintage..... make them quite small for postage reasons

Stamped Images..... stamp images on a 6x4 piece of card(theme doesnt apply here) just any images you have

Stamped Shipping Tags...... stamp images onto shipping tags(if you cant get tags, you can make them).......
please make 1 of each swap item per person in the swap....................for atc's and embellies because these can be time consuming to make, if we get more than 10 we will go round robin style, you will make 10 and get 10 back.................

please remember to include at least 1.2o stamped self addressed envelope so i can return them to you................and if you are in 3 or more of the swaps please use a large envelope because i struggle to fit all the items in a smaller envelope................

please note, if we have more than 10 in any of the swaps as final number, it will convert to round robin style where you only make 10 no matter how many join, that way you dont have to make too make 10 and receive your own plus 9 back.......that only applies to swaps with more than 10....and only for atc's and embellishments, because these 2 can be time consuming if we have to make too many of them
