I just love a swap with lots of partners to really fill up my mailbox - it makes my day!!! And as much as I LOVE getting random bits and bobs, I also love knowing I have some extra awesome goodies to open up! This is not a de-stash. This is a swapping of good quality supplies to diversify our collections! Doing this US only due to postage cost, feel free to host your own International version if you want!

In this swap you will have 10 partners and you will send each of them the following, at least:

  • a postcard
  • a note card with matching envelope (a size that can be mailed, nothing extra tiny)
  • at least 10 nice stickers, on a sheet, cut out or flakes are fine
  • 3+ nice background papers or cardstock, minimum ATC sized but preferably larger

All must be good quality, blank/unused - nothing bent, torn or written on. No ads, freebies or homemade items - except the background papers. They can be homemade if you are into making flat backgrounds with ink/paint/gelli printing, etc, but no collage or stickers.

If you are willing to accept handmade PCs or note cards, comment below so anyone wanting to do so knows. Or feel free to contact your partners and/or check profiles. As a rule though, they would be store bought unless otherwise specified. Is that confusing or helpful? LOL

You can send more, but you can not send less!

I know it's pretty specific but sometimes it's nice to just join a swap where you know you are going to get THE GOOD STUFF. Any questions, message me or put a comment here (a message will get a faster answer though).

You must rate 5 if your partner sends the correct items, on time. You may not rate down if you do not like the selections. Hearts are up to you. ♥ Don't forget to include a note with the swap name and your username so you can be rated properly.

Open only to those with a 5 rating and a well filled out profile. Will not accept newbies. US Only. EDIT: Opening up to 4.99 as I understand sometimes you might have 1 poor rating that is just downright unfair! No unexplained 1s or 3s. Will be checking profiles and will ban at my discretion.

I will angel, if necessary, after you have contacted your partner and rated them a 1, but I don't think I will have to.

Just a quick question before I sign up - can the notecards be handmade or do they have to be store bought?

CraftyTara 03/ 9/2021 #

As a rule, I would say store bought but if you want to contact your partners when they are assigned and see if any would accept homemade that is fine too and I bet some wouldn't mind at all. I only say no, as a rule, because it's so subjective. If someone was sending to ME - I would say yes, please hand make it!

That probably is more confusing than it was originally, huh? lol

Wish I could join this swap. It sounds like fun

CraftyTara 03/10/2021 #

Opened up to 4.99 but will be checking all profiles!

Rabbitfreedom 03/10/2021 #

Oh, btw, I would be very happy with handmade note cards! Anyone else?

CraftyTara 03/10/2021 #

I've fine with handmade cards so long as they are some type of crafted card, not cardstock or patterned paper just folded in half ♥

Kraftylady777 03/10/2021 #

Thank you so much for letting me join. I am excited.

Kraftylady777 03/10/2021 #

I am happy with handmade notecards and handmade postcards

I'm also good with handmade as long as it is an honest attempt at crafting and not just a sticker stuck on color paper, for example 8)

Mitziishere 03/17/2021 #

I’m open to a well crafted hand made card.

kizzlets 03/17/2021 #

I prefer store bought, please and thank you. :)

I’m good with handmade. It shows your heart is in it when you take time to make one.. and if your my partner and making one.. I’m making a sunflower themed junk journal I could add it to that if you make a sunflower one.. js.. lol

I love HM postcards and notecards as long as they are well-crafted.

Karen07 03/19/2021 #

Handmade works for me.

I sent all 10 envelopes out today for this swap (3/22/21), if for some reason you never receive one, please keep in touch with me and I'll do a resend, thank you!

CANNEKCUL 03/22/2021 #

I am okay with handmade Postcards and Notecards. Some of the most beautiful I have received were handmade just for me. I treasure those. :)

Mitziishere 03/23/2021 #

I have a general question, If I have a 3.8 weight on a 6 x 9 envelope... first oz is .55, each additional is .20 so the cost to mail the envie is 55 + 60 = 1.15. Am I right?

I know weird question, just want to make sure I’m covered.

Clearly I am postal challenged.

CraftyTara 03/25/2021 #

I'm not sure if that might push it to be classified as a large envelope, I always check here - https://postcalc.usps.com/Calculator/Index

CraftyTara 03/25/2021 #

It's coming up with $1.60 for me with those parameters

CANNEKCUL 03/26/2021 #

Dropped all 10 envelopes off at the USPS today! Have a great weekend.

Waiting on 1 more partner, and waiting on 1 partner to rate (hopefully it isn't missing) :o
