Description:

i'm finding that i feel a little stagnant with my current papercrafting stock. i have a ton of it, but with the economy as crappy as it is, i haven't been able to go out and splurge on new products. so i thought, i bet there's other swappers in the same boat, why not share the wealth. for this swap, you will have one partner and you must send ALL of the following:

-20 ATC blanks. these should be standard size 2 1/2" x 3 1/2", no solid color cardstock, and no flimsy text weight paper. -20 assorted brads, any style as long as it's a nice mix -2 yards of ribbon/yarn- please no plain grosgrain or rickrack, trying to share around stuff that other folks may not have -10 rubber stamped images on white or cream cardstock -20 random embellishments (paper flowers, stick on rhinestones (3 rhinestones=1 item), buttons, stickers, fabric add-ons, charms, beads, eyelets) -10 pieces of scrap paper, at least 3x3" or so, no tiny bits but usable chunks

for a heart, throw in anything extra that you want to-atc sleeves, envelopes, and other goodies you really like using on atcs, or if you're really dedicated, something they have in their profile.

to cut down shipping costs, i'm making this us only, but anyone is welcome to duplicate this as an international swap. you should have a 5 to do this swap, with at least 5 swaps snail mailed and rated by the time i assign partners. i can't angel this swap, so please only sign up if you KNOW you can follow through. i know emergencies happen, but please do your best to send. any questions, let me know, but beyond that, happy swapping!

So is this an actual box or an enevlope to send the stuff? I can fit A LOT of stuff in a padded envelope.

Thank you!

whatever makes you happy, as long as you can fit all the stuff on the list in the package-box is just easier to fit in the title than padded envelope :)

For the ATC blanks... I actually use playing cards which are 2.5x3.5 would those be ok?

CaseyWright 06/23/2009 #

trollop- what i was going for would be a variety of carstock atc "blanks", so people can get some new prints into their hands. i'd say the playing cards wouldn't work for me, because i'd have to cover them with cardstock. it's more to get a fresh set of paper around to everyone. it would ultimately be up to your partner to rate you if they felt that was ok, but feel free to do your own supply swap with any kind of blanks, if you'd like.

When you say no 'solid color cardstock' do all the cards have to have a pattern on them already? Solids are usually always my base. Thanks!

CaseyWright 07/10/2009 #

whimsee- i'd have to say no to the solid cardstock, as that's pretty readily available in most stores. i work a lot with patterns, and i find they vary a lot from region to region, so i was hoping to get some of us moving around our pattern stock and maybe get some stuff we can't find locally. thanks for your interest!

the swapbot server seems to be having massive issues. i am currently unable to assign partners due to numerous error pages that are coming up every time i try. i am out for the day, but will reattempt to assign this evening when i get home. thanks again for joining, we'll be swapping in no time (i hope).

thanks for letting us know what's up with swapbot! I have been looking a few times today to see partner stuff. maybe we can have a day or two extra to send if there are still problems later??? i am so excited about this swap and already have it together...still waiting to see if the stuff i have collected will "'fit my partner or if need to adjust.

CaseyWright 07/16/2009 #

once i can assign partners i will also extend the send date. i continue to get an error HTTP 500 message each time i try to assign. thanks everyone for your patience, i iknow this will be a fun swap once it gets going. i'm going to keep trying today and put in a help request as well, so check back, i'll also email everyone when i am able to assign.
