Are you new to collecting ATCs? or Are you seasoned pro? Do you have the desire to build up or add to your collection? If so then this swap is for you.

YES..It will be time consuming, It will take awhile, and you must be committed, but at the end of the swap you'll have an instant collection to keep and share as you please.

This swap is intended to get your creative juices flowing, I hope to offer some challenges, and I hope to inspire some fun times.

~~ You will have the month of June to complete the swap.. you should make 1 or more cards a day to stay ahead of the game. You are welcome to start as soon as you sign up.

~~ You can send cards to partners as you finish, or you can wait & divide them to send. So long as all cards are sent by the deadline.

The number of partners is listed as "1," and needs to be changed!

Thanks Karry : )

Would bead paste be acceptable in place of sand paste?

Babsmomof5 06/ 2/2017 #

Actually nvm, lol, I've already chosen at least three other themes, so it can count towards my "senders choice" if I go that route ;-)

judgedbyabookscover 06/ 2/2017 #

Any gritty paste will do.. you could mix up your own too

Babsmomof5 06/ 2/2017 #

I've never made my own...what ratio do you use, and where do you get clean sand?

judgedbyabookscover 06/ 3/2017 #

lol clean sand, I just collected some from the playground..and I get colored sand from the dollar tree

I randomly mix it into modeling paste to make the consistency that I want .. no rhyme or reason ... rest assured my sand wont be brown : )

Babsmomof5 06/14/2017 #

Rofl! I'll check my dollar tree. I hadn't thought of that. I've made my own fiber paste before using modeling paste and fibers from coconuts. Has anyone ever used tar gel or string gel?
