Response: You're welcome! I'm happy you liked everything! Happy New Year!
Comment: Sorry for being so late with my response. Christmas was a busy time. Love your ATC. I lived through the 60s time period. Was a fun time for dancing, dressing in cute dresses. Thank you for all the memories with your ATC. Also for all the extras which I will use.
Response: That's ok! I'm glad it arrived and you liked everything sent! :)
Comment: Hello Amanda,
Thank you for the beautiful Flower Stamp ATC you created for me for this swap. I like how you featured the stamp on the top and featured Japanese landscape below the stamp. I also love all the forms of gold you utilized as accents. This ATC will be a wonderful addition to my Postage Stamp ATC Series. I also appreciate the goodie bag of various items you sent along with the ATC. I look forward to utilizing them on future projects or adding them to collections I have as part of Swap-bot.
Response: You're welcome, Barb! I'm glad it arrived, and I'll be more careful about zip codes from now on! I'm glad you liked everything! :)
Comment: Not sure how it happened but I did not rate you for this swap! I was flaked so this was sitting in my sent file waiting for the swap to arrive and I gave up. Noticed horror of all horrors you did not get rated!
Comment: Incredible OUAT ATC! Hook is so incredibly sexy and you did him justice with this piece of art!!! Thank you for the time you put into this ATC...and for the lovely extras! Have a wonderful day. - Sarah. <3
Response: You're welcome! I'm glad you liked everything!
Comment: Great job on the lady bug ATC, I like how its different with a ladybug stamp, bling and the leaf how unique. I will display this on my wall rack used to hold ATC and cards. Thank you for the extras as well, I always want book pages, and love the paper, ribbon, cut-outs and beautiful napkin image. I appreciate it very much :)
Response: You're very welcome! I'm glad you liked it and every sent with it. :)
Comment: Very pretty ATC! And totally creative :) This was a fun swap & I your little package of goodies made my day! The extra papers and punchies are so pretty & I will definitely use them. Thank you so much for being an awesome partner!
Response: You're welcome! I'm so glad you liked everything! :)
Comment: Hi Amanda, Love your little critters I can't say I have ever heard of a Aye-aye but he/she sure is cute the Badgers are adorable too. Thanks for doing this swap with me and thanks for the little extra's.
Response: Hello Denise - I'm glad you liked everything. Thank you also for swapping with me!
Comment: HAHA, so funny. Yes, i think they are very cute, too. In fact I am hosting the "Cool/Obscure/All Animal ATC"-swap series and the first round was axolotl :D We're already in our second round Arctic wold, but if you like why not join the third "Playtpus"?
Goal there is to dedicate an ATC to all those cool animals out there
Comment: I just received this today- for some reason it had the incorrect zip code...but a big thanks for all the extra cards and the slams are fun I especially thought the word association one was fun!
Response: You're welcome! Sorry about the incorrect zipcode, but I'm glad it arrived.
Comment: Thank you Amanda for your N&N Roses FBs & extras! Love what you sent me. Not your fault your envelope was late - sometime while the envelope went thru the postal system someone tore the envelope open. It was taped shut before I received it.
Response: You're welcome! I'm glad it arrived! â™¥
Comment: Hello Amanda,
Thank you for the beautiful ATC you created for me for this swap. I really liked the sparkly elements you used on the ATC. It added a lot to the ATC. This ATC will be a great addition to my Owls of the World Series.
Comment: my first reaction: that is adorable! thank you for the lovely ein atc! may i recommend the episode "mushroom samba", or else the movie if you can find it? it's a pretty decent anime, over all :)
Response: You're welcome! I'm glad you like it! I will definitely check out the show. Thanks for the suggestion. :)
Comment: I love the irony of all the cute little baby stuff, like it's a newborn photo album, all lovey-dovey...little teddy bear...with this *horrific* head only a mother on LOTSA drugs could love lol...very interesting theme choice!
Response: Haha! Glad you found it interesting and ironic. I would buy it to scare others. :P
Comment: I think the scariness of ghosts is mostly a sense of intrusion - they're there and you have no control over that. I've never seen a real one, but ghost movies scare the bejeezus out of me. :) Thanks for the great card!
Response: You're welcome! I think you're right. :)
Comment: What a lovely ATC and nice papers! I made my ATC on Jefferson/The Mad Hatter, but Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold is another of my most favorite characters! Your ATC is beautiful - worth display! Thanks!
Response: You're welcome! I'm very happy you like it!
Comment: It's possible I'm a little biased because L4D is one of my favorite games ever, but aside from that I love the way it looks. I'm still trying to figure out how you did that neat bordering effect. :3
Response: I love that game too! Hours of fun! The bordering effect are just foil stickers. They always add a nice flair! Glad you like it! :)
Comment: Thank you SO VERY MUCH!!! LOVE it, and thanks so much for making the extra one for me as well :) And thanks for the extras. And for reading my mind and chose my FAV pics for the FBs. And for hosting. And for being awesome! PS: Made you an FB anyway since I printed out the pics before partners were assigned so I hope you get it back soon :)
Response: You're welcome!! So glad you liked them! :D Thanks for making one for me!!
Comment: I received 2 envies of GORGEOUS Autumn FBs from you, and I love the extra goodies too.... you spoiled me :) (OK so what if it was your bad memory, I can still think you were spoiling me, can't I?) Thanks for hosting this swap.
Response: Haha, I thought I had sent it the first time, then I second guessed myself! It's ok, I love making FBs, and I'm glad you like them! :)
Comment: Hi Amanda,
Thanks for the fabulous swap-cards!
I love the fact that you made so many different designs, all linked to things from my profile. I'm already having fun deciding which one to use in each of my swaps!
Response: You're very welcome! I'm so happy you like them!!
Comment: Hi ghostlysun!:) How DID you make that picture...was it collaged on the computer or did you find it that way? Alot of time I have no luck in finding "just" the right picture(s) to use when making ATC's so I usually make up my own...depending on what idea I come up with. Thanks for the extra papers too...I really like the patchwork one for inchies;which I haven't done yet but find interesting. Hope you have a Great Day Creating!!:) Happy Swapping!Ciao!:)
Response: Hello! I actually found that picture like that under google when I searched for "bear attack". Sometimes I have to also make my own. Glad you liked the extras!
Comment: What a fun swap hon. I really like your ATC (and sometimes shopping is the only thing that helps for down-in-the-dumpness). Thank you for the list - I'll come join you in your theatre room any day :) And sister, I hear you on the scrapbook room / craft room. The extras are great and will be put to good use. Thank you very much for a great swap :)
Response: I'm very happy you enjoyed everything. A craft room would be heavenly! :) You're very welcome for everything! :)
Comment: Thank you so much! I love Gremlins! I used to watch it non-stop as a kid and I still think of the singing Gremlin whenever I hear the NewYork, New York song. The stickers are also much appreciated.
Response: You're welcome! I'm glad you liked everything. :)
Comment: Thanks for the lovely ATC. I enjoyed the section of paper, image, and foil stickers/diecuts--they blended well together. You might want to try some Distress Inks or Cats Eye chalk inks on the edges of your papers! I think those techniques would work great with your style. :D
Response: You're welcome! I will definitely check out the inks. Sounds like something to play around with.
Comment: How cool is it that you got assigned to me?! :D I was expecting a letter, and then suprise!! An ATC! :) :) It was a great one, i LOVE Avatar (I chose Armageddon, myself). Hope to hear from you soon and let you know how the wedding went (the 25th!!). <3 you, Brit.
Response: Brit, I thought it was cool to be assigned to you too. I am still trying to get these letters written. I am glad you liked the ATC. I hope your wedding goes wonderfully!
Comment: Thank you for the Wedding Dress ATC. It is really pretty! I really like the black and white. Cute little extras too. Your name was familiar and I just sent out a Paper Swap to you a few days ago! Funny how that works. A few weeks ago I got connected up with my sister-in-law in a different state than me. Happy swapping!
Response: You're welcome. I'm glad you liked it! I look forward to your Paper Swap! I recently got a friend as a partner in a swap, which was odd to me, because the swap was about 80 people. It is cool how this works! Happy swapping to you!
Comment: Thank you for the nice atc. It measures just bout right on the button but because of the thickness it will not fit in a regular plastic sleeve. I'm hoping it will fit in my atc book w/o the sleeve.
Response: You're welcome. Too bad it's so thick! I hope it fits! :)
Comment: Hello Amanda,
First of all, thank you for the extras you sent me along with the swap. Please know that the extras will be used in future creative endeavors. Thank you for the two ATCs you designed and created for this swap. They both will be positve additions to my "Alphabe of Life" Series. Hope we meet again for swaps in the future.
Response: Hello Barb, you're welcome for the extras. I'm glad they can be found useful. Glad you also liked the ATCs.
Comment: That was a great ATC! I did SC's Lizard Man, b/c I am a lifelong SC resident & native. But I privately wanted to do the Jersey Devil. I'm so glad I got him! Thanks so much, and thanks for all the extras. My 6 yr old daughter pounced on the cool stickers. I love the gorgeous backgrounds. Thanks so much!
Response: You're very welcome! I'm glad you liked everything I sent. The Jersey Devil is very creepy, so he was fun to make into an ATC. :)
Comment: You always say in the swaps that you make...."DON'T JUST STICK SOME STICKERS ON IT AND THINK THAT IT'S GOOD. Got to laugh. That's what you did with this postcard. I thought some little kid made it.
Response: That was the point, to make it ugly. I actually did more than just stickers. I also cut out pictures from magazines and made sure to laminate it, and double-side it (so it would make it to you in one piece).
Comment: I love the tree with the birds and the leaves that come off the bottom. As an FYI: your sparkle dots weren't quite dry when it went into the green envelope so it stuck to the inside. Thanks for the fun extras that came with it, especially the stamps, and the beautiful card.
Response: Aww, sorry about the sparkle dots. I think that the tube is old stuff, as it set out for a long, long time! I need to get some new. My mother-in-law gave me a box of glitter glue stuff, and I think it's at least 5 years old. Glad you liked all I sent.
Comment: I love your ATC! The grass is awesome! And thank you SO much for the pretty papers...you found the perfect shade of teal. I'm putting one of those in my purse for the next time I have to show someone my favorite color!!!
Response: I love teal too! Glad you liked the ATC. I have to give my husband credit for the grass idea.
Comment: Thank you for organising the swap. I had fun creating my Angel ATC. Also thank you for the combined creative efforts of both Deverin & you, and the beautiful ATC you sent me. The extra paper will be put to good use in my future ATCs. Looking forward to swap with you soon!
Response: Glad you liked the ATC! I'm happy to know you can use the extra paper. Happy swapping!
Comment: Hello Amanda,
Thank you for the very darling Atc you created for this swap. "Tinkerbell" is a great fairy to feature on an ATC. The gloss surface adds to the ATC along with varied types of supplies. I look forward to adding your ATC to my ever-growing and ever-changing ATC collection. I'm sure we will meet along the Swap-bot road again. Until then, Happy Swapping!!!
P.S. Thank you for the "extras" you sent along with the ATC. Please know that they will be used in future creative endeavors.
Response: Thank you for your kind words! I am glad you liked all I sent. Happy swapping!
Comment: It's awesome that you looked through my wishlist and got a book for me that was on my wishlist. Thanks a lot! I'll probably make it into a bookcrossing book so it can make even more people happy after I read it.
Response: You're welcome! I hope you enjoy it! Happy reading! :)
Comment: OH MY! What a FANTASTIC package you sent! Amanda, it was fantastic! I absolutely could not believe the work that went into that little booklet. I would LOVE to know how to make that little book! I have shown the booklet to EVERYONE! We have 2 groundhogs living under the shed in our backyard so I guess I like groundhogs too. ;+)
Response: I think this was for your other partner.
Comment: Thanks! but I already deco'd two of the 5 books. You can send me some more later when you get a chance!! thanks! lovely extras. I love notecards!***so nice of you to send two more!! you aregreat!!!
Response: I'm so sorry! I didn't realize! I just got some in the mail finally, so I'll send them on to you.
Comment: Hey, thanks for the really cute bookmarks (and the extra papers too). Your note said you wanted a laminating machine. I did too, so I talked to the crafting store about it. She told me they don't carry them anymore, that a lot of people didn't like how they worked for the money. She recommended just buying clear laminating sheets, like at an office supply store, and cutting them to the size you need. She said it was cheaper and easier and you can control it better. So that is what I do now. You might try that before investing in an expensive machine. :)
Response: Deb, thanks for the information. I found some laminating machines on Amazon, but I wasn't sure how well they worked. I might do some laminating myself. Thanks again! Glad you liked the bookmarks.
Comment: Thanks for the fun pkg. It was all great. I love the ornaments, they are too cute. And of course I always love getting candy. LOL Oh, and it didn't come postage due, so I guess they just accepted your postage on it. Maybe a holiday gift from the PO. :)
Response: You're very welcome! Wow, thanks to the Post Office! :P I was so worried about that. I am so glad you liked everything! I hope you host more of these! They are so much fun!
Comment: Thanks for the fun swap you sent. And especially thanks for the CD you sent. I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet, but I know I will like it. Some of the music I have heard before, but not all of it, so I am excited to listen to it. I spend a lot of time in my car for work, so I like to have stuff to listen to. :)
Response: You're welcome! I'm glad you liked what I sent! I am also happy that the CD I made will be useful. :)
Comment: I am enjoying this package - good stuff!
The jewels are my fave color and the CD has some of my all-time fave songs!
I put it in my car CD player as soon as I opened it at the PO, and enjoyed the music as I sat in a long traffic jam on the way home.
PS: I forgot to say that the CD is very clever - that must have fun to make!
Also, I am working on your package and it should go in the mail on Monday.
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything! It was fun to get everything together. The jewels are also my favorite color! I look forward to receiving your package!
