I have hosted some Round Robin Journal Swaps , that are only open t o "experienced" swappers with a great rating - and I have been contacted by many newbies asking if they can join...

I've told them to find a "quick turnaround swap " and get some great ratings, and they would be most welcome.

well, there just aren't that many "quickies" that are open to newbies, ...and I remember when I was one myself...

SO... This is for YOU, if you are brand new, and haven't yet found a quick swap to get some good ratings.

This is an International Swap, open to EVERYONE! - even experienced swappers (adding a coupe more "5"ratings is good for anyone!

SWAP DETAILS: you will have TWO partners (that means you will get two ratings)

Send FOUR blank notecards with envelopes to each of your partners.

(That's eight notecards total, which is usually one packet of notecards from the store)

This is a FAST swap (one week from signup deadline to mailing deadline, so get your cards right away, put them in the mailing envelope, even weigh it, if you want (remember, this is an international swap, so don't add postage yet)

Swap partners will be assigned right after the signing deadline, all you'll have to do is address the envie, add the right postage, and get it mailed on time.

Remember to RATE your partner as soon as your swap arrives...there are some eager newbies waiting for a number after their name!

Any questions or comments please just ask or message me.

Thanks for putting this together! There are so many swaps I want to join but don't have the rating for yet.

Did you intentionally make two of these @gramsbuttonbox ?

Chromia 12/ 2/2015 #

Do the cards all have to match?

gramsbuttonbox 12/ 5/2015 #

Nim I was not intentional...I tried to edit the one, but it open d a whole n w one!!

And there are swappers signed up for both, so I'm not going to delete it...the cards do not have to match, or they can...there might be some newbies who have not accumulated as much stiff as some of the oldies...and that it fine!

Please see my updated profile regarding my low ratings I received almost a year ago, nobody should fear not receiving anything from me as I will fulfill all obligations ON TIME. Thank you.

I am happy to welcome you to the swap, and hope you have fun with it. I appreciate your explanation...

I did not have a minimum rating on my swaps, because I do believe in second chances...I would not be here, myself, if not for them...that, and I never start a project (or swap) with NOT trusting people.

NEWBIES: Please note that MOST of my swaps are open to newbies, with only ONE rule: you MUST have a well thought-out and completed profile! Your partners want to get to know you! since it is my ONLY rule, I am quite strict about it, and must require you to get yours filled out, or I will not be able to keep y in the swap. The deadline for that, is the same as the deadline for signing up. And as I wrote in the swap-rules, a good rule of thumb, is that when I open your profile page, I should have to scroll down to read it! Please take care of this, right away. Gramsbuttonbox

Are the blank notecards allowed to have any printed message on them, such as "Thank you" or "Happy Birthday"?

gramsbuttonbox 12/31/2015 #

Thanks for asking, and no, they are to be blank of any printed greeting.

It would be absolutely acceptable to take a piece of one-sided scrapbook paper, fold it, and cut it to fit into ananvie.

Otherwise, it's possible you might risk a lower rating, since the swap rules state it should be blank.

I hope that helps.

Happy New Year!

I have deleted a comment by VivaLaDiane, who is not in any of my swaps. I will not allow anyone to use my forums to write their opinions about anyone who IS in my swaps!

Happy New Year, everyone!

i do appreciate everyone who has signed up, and I hope you all have lots of fun with it!

Hi - I'd like to sign up please. :) I've been "out" of swap circulation officially for some time now, but have received recently an envelope full of fb's. If I can do a quick swap to build up my credentials for future swaps, this would be it I think! :) (Glad I could get in on the very last day to sign up! cutting it close!)

gramsbuttonbox 01/ 4/2016 #

Welcome to the swap..I hope you. Have a lot of fun with it!

CraftyMommaonaBUDGET 01/ 4/2016 #

can all the cards be the same color with different designs?

BridgeyC 01/ 5/2016 #

Are we getting our partners today?

gramsbuttonbox 01/ 5/2016 #

The cards can be all the same, or all different -sender's choice. There are newbies who will not have accumulated as many different kinds, like some of us "oldies". I hope you have fun with it.

needlewings 01/31/2016 #

OOPS! I guess I hadn't marked mine sent and I sent them the day after it was posted to send. Sorry! Hope my second person got hers as I had only gotten one rating.
