If you're like me, it's possible that during the past months you've been accumulating all kind of paper goods at home, probably because at some point you thought you'd use them but at the end they end up inside a box or at the end of the drawer - but you don't want to throw them because they're still pretty or they can be useful for somebody else.

The point of this swap is to send those paper goods we're no longer using, and receive other ones in exchange that maybe we can use for something. Of course we don't really know what we're going to get, but chances are that we receive something that we can use in our next craft or project, and that maybe we wouldn't find through any other way.

You can send:

  • Pieces of cute Scrapbooking paper (minumum the size of an ATC, otherwise they can't really be used)
  • Die Cuts
  • Book pages
  • Maps
  • Postcards (unwritten)
  • Interesting ephemera (pamphlets, tickets, etc)
  • Stickers
  • Recipes
  • Notecards with envelopes
  • Pretty Used stamps
  • Bookmarks
  • Paper embellishments
  • Etc

Please, keep in mind that "destash" doesn't mean "trash". The fact that you don't want something anymore doesn't mean that we're going to send stuff that we wouldn't like to receive - try to make a parcel with cute/interesting paper goods that you think can be useful for the person that will receive it (it's not a profile based envie, but it's always nice to check and if we have something they might like will always be appreciated).

The envelope should be around 15cm x 21 cm, which of course it's just a reference size, and fill it as much as possible with different items (try to add a little bit of variety and not only the same items - for instance not just book pages and nothing else). Considering it's all paper and we're going to send just within Europe we can stuff so the other person will have a nice surprise when receiving it.

No recent unnexplained 1s or 3s on the rating, I want this to be a safe swap for all the participans. I'm allowing newbies to join (we all were newbies at some point), but in that case you need to have a filled profile with more than just the basics.

For any question, feel free to ask! I'll be happy to answer.
