ATC Swap 2015
In the last few days we all had the ATC fever not to mention we had fun making them. This gave me the idea to see if there would be enough people who would like to do a swap…
Carol put up a post and soon people let us know they would love to try one soooo…here we go!!!!
I will do a step by step on the rules ( we don’t have many ) and the ideas we had about this swap.
1. You can sign up until the 28th of February 2015.
2. To sign up you sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information : your name, full address (otherwise the people in your group can’t mail you’re cards ) the country you are in and if you would mind being in an international group.
3. In the first week of March you will receive an email with the people in your group. We are trying to make groups of 7 which means you will receive cards from 6 people.
4. You will have till the 31st of March to mail your cards to the people in your group.
Once you received the information of your group it is time to get started on the fun part…making the cards!!!
Our lovely Miss Carol had the perfect idea…spring and flowers!!! I think we are all slowly getting sick of winter lol.
There is this great saying “April showers bring May flowers” and that is what we are going to use in this swap.
We will be making two chipboard cards that will have the elements of spring and flowers and tie them together with say ribbon, twine, lace or whatever you have in your stash.
To give you an idea I made a set using some of the Graphic 45 Time to flourish papers.
The standard size of an ATC is 2 ½ x 3 ½ so we are sticking to that size. However you can always have some embellishments stick out at top or bottom or side as long as the total size doesn’t go over 3 x 4 and we have a reason for that and I will explain later why.
Once you have made your cards make sure you do not forget to sign it on the back!! I know people would love to know who made the set :)
Last step….mail the cards and wait for the postman to bring you 6 envelopes with 6 sets of cards, and here is the reason why you will have to stick to the maximum size of 3x4….
Where will you store the sets of lovely cards of this swap? Well how about this box?
The tutorial for this box will be mailed to all who sign up for the swap so you can keep all your cards together.
I am looking forward to seeing all of your emails so I can start making the groups and get this swap rolling.
If you have any questions please let me know you can use the same email as the one for the sign up.
Hope to read you all soon.
