For this swap you will make one ATC for your partner. The only requirement is that the ATC has to have a piece of a book page on it somewhere, either as the background or as an element in the artwork. Senders choice, so you can make your ATC before partners are assigned.

No rating requirement for this swap, but that does not mean that I'm not going to remove questionable swappers before partners are assigned ;P

Hi can l join please and thank you.

Barsook 02/18/2012 #

@Karmi53 Most people who host swaps want you to have filled out profile.

Anyways, wow, huge swap!

donnastamps 02/19/2012 #

Ohhhhh very cool idea for an ATC swap!! Im in :)

yomousey 02/19/2012 #

OK does it have to be an actual page or can you use a copy of a page or print one out from a book online. Like on Amazon where you can look inside at a book page?

Lexidh 02/19/2012 #

Copies and print outs are OK. So are rubber stamped images with book page themes.

yomousey 02/21/2012 #

Thank you!

Nastasi 02/22/2012 #

How big does it have to be? Does an ATC have a specified size?

Barsook 02/22/2012 #

@Nastasi It's 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches.

Barsook 02/23/2012 #

100+ swappers in this one. What did that happen?!

Lexidh 02/23/2012 #

I have no idea what happened... I just made the swap, told no one and then... BOOM!

Shannoncollar 02/25/2012 #

Is it ok to use a piece from a magazine?

weevon 02/25/2012 #

Very excited. This is only my second swap so I'm sure I will have a question. Thank you.

Nastasi 02/25/2012 #

@Barsook Thank you!! :)

super excited for this :] I haven't made an ATC card yet but I have so many ideas! Does cardstock make for a good backing or should I find something more sturdy?

ladyphlogiston 02/25/2012 #

I've always used cardstock. Actually I use index cards, which I run through the printer before cutting them so they'll have my name and contact info on the backs. (It's traditional to put a little information on the back of an ATC.) Some people prefer chipboard, or cut theirs from cereal boxes, or things like that. Entirely up to you.

Engelenvrouwtje 02/26/2012 #

As I'm from Belgium is it ok that the piece of a book is in Netherlands? I think this is a nice swap.

Lexidh 02/26/2012 #

@Engelenvrouwtje : The ATC in the photo (which I've made for this swap) has a book page in Norwegian, any language is good =)

@Shannoncollar : No glossy magazines please.

steveskate 02/26/2012 #

Just joined. Can't wait to get my partner. This is my 2nd swap. I had so much fun with the valentine swap I decided to try another one.:)

ameccan 02/27/2012 #

perlacraft 02/27/2012 #

Can't wait to start, Im a newbie on the ATC making but oh!! So addictive!!!!^_^

SwedishMum 02/28/2012 #

THIS is ATC's !! Here is a link where you can learn more of ATC*s - it isn't my site, but it was where I learned when starting doing them.


SwedishMum 02/28/2012 #

Ok I will try again


Jan 02/28/2012 #

I'm a total newbie to this. Just signing up for my first swaps, but very excited about finding this community. I love making ATCs but stopped because I didn't know how to find others to swap with. :)

Candyn29 02/29/2012 #

@Lexidh Holy Cow, you have started something big! What a large turn out for this swap!

churlann 02/29/2012 #

I am excited about this swap. Never did book art before so this should be fun. Will start working on it tonight!

ATCLover 02/29/2012 #

This is my first swap on Swap-bot... I've done many at Flickr though. Is there a way you can post and view cards that have been uploaded for this swap? I'm just curious - thanks!

Lexidh 03/ 1/2012 #

@Candyn29 : I know, and I have no idea what hit me! I didn't even tell anyone that I was doing the swap, just made it.

Lexidh 03/ 1/2012 #

@ATCLover : I wish there was some gallery function here, but so far it's not =(

ameccan 03/ 1/2012 #

I am so sorry for the questions but how can I tell who I got assigned to swap with? I got the email stating I was assigned a partner. So sorry for silly questions!

Lady 03/ 1/2012 #

In the upper right corner there should be a yellow box with options. Click on "See the partners you send to". (There is only one partner for this swap but the words are always the same.)

ransom 03/ 1/2012 #

I am so impressed how many members joined your swap!!!!

Way to go!!! :-)

katgal40 03/ 1/2012 #

Would like to know why you banned me from this swap ?? I have lots of swaps under my belt and have 4.99 rating ...

blueraven44 03/ 3/2012 #

You banned me and never responded to my message? :[ I know I'm new, but you've let others be in this swap who joined in the middle of february with 2 sentance's in their profile...why ban me?

FreddFudd 03/21/2012 #

Well Lexidh, I totally enjoyed this swap. Applause to you for being the driver and I am looking forward to many more. You ROCK ! Cheers FreddFudd {:-D
