The swap will be the first of a series of ATCs, each featuring a different letter of the alphabet. This swap will feature the letter "A"

You DO NOT have to use the letter "A" in your ATC, it can be something that starts with the letter A (Apples, Aliens, Asparagus, Airplane, etc) Nothing offensive please.

This swap is sender's choice, but you can always ask your partner what they like if you wish.

You can use any media you wish,(Paint, Ink, Rubber Stamps, Die cuts, etc) just NO sticker slapping. You can incorporate stickers into the design if you wish but it should not make up the majority or the Main Subject of the ATC.


  • Standard ATC Size - 2.5 x 3.5

  • Sturdy Backing

  • Protective Cover required (Clear sleeve, laminate, or ziplock bag)

  • Write your name and What your ATC is on the back.

  • Feature the letter "A" in some way (can be things that start with A)

  • Send to 1 partner

Newbies welcome with filled in profile. 4.9 required to join. No recent 1s. I will Angel if needed.

Cant it be Int'l ????

neekahbelle 05/ 8/2014 #

ugh, why US only? :(

plushiecat 05/ 8/2014 #

Because some of us can't afford international shipping and, no offense, are quite happy to see USA only for that reason.

I am sorry that I can't make this swap international. USPS recently increased postage and as @plushiecat said, many of us can't afford it when we are doing multiple swaps.

I do host international swaps, but right now I will not be doing so. You are more than welcome to host an international version of this swap if you wish.

@damilola and @neekahbelle I'm hosting a continuous alphabet ATC swap and have been for many months. It is international. Once we get to 'Z' we start again at 'A' so people can join at any time and keep going as long as they like.

Is other any way of getting a notification of the next swap so I won't miss any once I start?

jesslynne 05/12/2014 #

@tkow - I will post the next swap on the day that I assign the partners

This should be a Type 3 swap. The FAQs state that a swap with a significant crafting component - even if it can be mailed in an envelope - is a Type 3.

Thanks for the hint @Lizard !

I'm excited! I have A & B made already (posted on my Flickr) and thank you @Lizard , if I need any make up letters I will know to look for your swaps. Do you do any weeks where people ask for letters they are missing?
