A lot of us here do paper crafts; either card making, ATC's, scrap booking, journalling or making zines or book marks.

For this swap you will be required to send 15 (fifteen) different pieces of patterned/textured paper to your one (1) swap partner.

Each piece of paper should be 15cm x 10.5cm (6" x 4") or larger if you wish.

With having this minimum size the paper is suitable for card making etc. or you could get 2x ATC backgrounds from each piece.

You can use gift/wrapping paper, scrap booking paper etc. but please use ones with patterns or small pictures on them ~ please don't send plain paper!!

Also metallic & mulberry papers & very textured paper can be included but please send a variety of papers!!

Due to strict quarantine rules in Australia & New Zealand please do not send handmade papers

Please put the paper pieces in a plastic sleeve/bag before placing them in an envelope to post so everything is received dry.

Newbies welcome ~ please PM me first.

No recent no-sends/low ratings. NO FLAKERS!!

If you have any questions please PM me or comment below.

Happy Swapping :-)

it's great to see so many of you have signed up for this swap ~ thanks :-)

Can the paper be textured rather than pictured--like homemade/handmade/mulberry papers?

(I love metallics, crinkles, canvas-like textures, and other textures and not so much cute little pictures on paper, so I have a lot more of that type than the calico-type with flowers and such.)

thanks for your question ~ I have edited the swap requirements to include this answer!

Hi, Alifromourpatch! =)

I just signed up for this interesting swap (great idea!) and I have a question: some pieces could be home PRINTED? Because I have some lovely backgrounds here and a nice textured ink jet white paper, so... I was thinking if I could send some printed (NOT ALL printed!).

Thank you. =)

alifromourpatch 02/13/2008 #

Hi Tatiswaps!

I don't see this to be a problem regarding you printing some of your own as this does fit the requirements of the swap ~ only if no two pieces sent are the same design on the textured paper and perhaps you printed in different colours (not all black on white)

Please don't send more than 4 like this unless you've been in contact with your swap partner and she/he doesn't mind!!

I woud prefer no scrapbooking paper, but if that's all you have, no stripes please.

I am not picky and would love anything! i do not often use textured paper but willing to give it a try. I love circles on paper, and funky florals (not old english roses etc), Lots of Colour please! and please let me know if they are acid free as I do use my papers in scrapbooks and only use acid free stuff. Thank you and can't wait to do this swap!

alifromourpatch 03/20/2008 #

I just want to let everyone know that the papers you send do not have to be acid free or related to anyones specific requests ~ the swap requirements are listed above

infact I have mine already cut to size in a plastic sleeve and ready to send!!

I love everything. If you think it's cool, I'm sure I will too. I love all colors bright and muted, metalic, pearly, matt, whatever. I love picturs and patterns and especially texture. Get creative and send me whatever you would be excited to receive. Thanks in advance!!

alifromourpatch 03/27/2008 #

I will be re-checking profile etc. as soon as the sign up time ends & assigning partners straight after that

siayla 03/27/2008 #

I'm sorry if i offended anyone. I realize that partners do not have to accommodate anyone's wishes. I just noticed on some swaps they do list for ideas so I listed ideas. Any papers any designs will be greatly appreciated!!! Also I was just asking for a brief note to let me know re acid free so I know if I can use them in my scrapbook or not. Other wise I will just use in my cards. Sorry again, and thanks for putting on this swap. I think it's a great way to liven up your stash!

alifromourpatch 03/27/2008 #

I appreciate what you wrote above siayla but you didn't offend me.

I just wanted to clarify the swap requirements :-)
