This is the series begun by StarMouse. She is taking a break from hosting so I am stepping in. There have been some great pages done, so I want to continue this fun swap.

We love our rubber stamps, but nobody can own all of them. This swap will let us share the images of our stamps. The books will travel among the joiners of the swaps until they are full, and then be returned to their originators.

If you are joining this swap for the first time, please follow these Round One instructions: Make or buy a small notebook. Folded flat, it will be about 4 inches square or so. That's for low postage to one partner. It should have a total of ten pages of something like mixed media paper, for thinness. Cover is optional. I just decorate the first page, giving return info there, so it comes back to me. Books must lie reasonably flat.

You will stamp a rubber, clear, or hand carved stamp, even a potato print into it. Ink colors, added decoration, embossing, all are your choice on the page you decorate. Check to see that you are not repeating a stamp already in that book!

Add your name, Swap-bot name, State or Country, and the date. Adding an email address is also good. You might add a separate note with the book identifying the swap name and round number.

After Round One: someone new will put a stamped image in the book. And so on, round after round, until the book is complete. Finally, the person who decorates the last page will send it home to the person who made the book. Please do not forward a full book to someone else to send home.

This is an International swap. But the postage cost for most books will only be for one ounce.

Please DO NOT commit to this series of swaps if you won't actually fulfill your obligations. No flakers, please! You must have a filled out profile and a 4.95 rating to join. I check profiles carefully to ensure that my swaps remain fun and flake free. I will Angel if necessary, after you make two attempts to contact your partner, without response, AND rate them a 1 for nothing received.

Please rate your partners each round. You rate a five if you receive a swap. If Your swap is late, contact your partner AND me, via Swap-bot; then get it moving as soon as possible!

Any questions? please contact me. Happy Swapping!
