I have never made an ATC before in my time here on The Bot and I figured I'd try my hand at it. This swap is for newbies who are looking to expand their crafting horizons. The theme is up to you, but you must make it clear, and write the name of the swap and your name on the back. You will have one partner and send them one new made-by-you ATC. Please write your partner a little message about why you chose the theme you chose.

I know that are plenty of seasoned ATC makers out there, but this is for people new to ATC making. Seasoned swappers are more than welcome to join, but please do not be upset if your partner does not send something as high quality and detailed as you send. This is not to encourage shotty work, but more to warn people that newbies, like me, are still learning how to make ATC's and experimenting with different mediums. The standard size of an ATC is 2 ½ X 3 ½ inches and is made of thick paper. You can find ATC pre-cut cards at most craft and hobby stores. Please do not send anything bigger or smaller.

Once again, this is an open theme, newbies ATC swap. If you have ever wanted to learn but some of the ATC swaps seem a little daunting and scary, this is the swap for you. Please craft to your best ability and don't send something that you wouldn't want to receive.

I will be checking profiles before assigning partners and ban anyone that I find to be shady or a possible flaker. No recent unexplained 1's or 3's and please do not commit if you do not think you will have the time.

Questions? Please PM me!

What do you call someone who's not a newbie but is not exactly "seasoned" either? Lol. I'll be in for this one. I've just started seriously collecting, so anything is acceptable to me, especially as it will encourage more crafters to join in the fun of creating ATCs!

I'd say you should join :) I've seen some of the amazing things that the seasoned ATC makers have produced on here and I am no where near their skill level. I'm just afraid that someone will craft something incredibly detailed and super amazing and they might get something from a beginner and be upset that it doesn't look as nice as theirs. Please join! :)

Not exactly a newbie, but not exactly seasoned either. LOL. But. I am all up for joining this. I might be able to show someone something new? Hopefully (^^)
