Nov. - Stamped Images

Swap Coordinator: Barbi
Swap categories: Paper Crafts,  Rubber Stamping,  Scrapbooking
Location: International
Number of swap partners: 1



Description:


I have been in a few swaps for stamped images and I just love these. It is so much fun to get stamped images from someone else's stash of rubber/acrylic stamps. I have quite the stash myself, but we all know there are always more out there that we want and this is a way to get those images without buying the stamp ourselves. I make a lot of handmade cards and use rubber/acrylic stamps on just about everyone of them, so I just love to get all different images; even sayings. For this swap you will have 1 partner and send them TEN stamped images on WHITE CARD STOCK. All images must be AT LEAST 1x1 inch and the paper be big enough to make fancy cuts around them if we like. These all should be stamped in BLACK INK so that we may color in the images if so chosen. I hope everyone enjoys this swap.

Description:


This is a swap for all you USA fb makers & swappers!


You will make 5 fbs (MUST be made by you!) These can be made FOR anyone including yourself! I have pals I usually make fbs for (I'm sure you do too! If not, I'll give you my info and you can make them for me.)


Friendship Books can be up to the size of a standard postcard in size. They must have what you think is a nicely decorated front cover. You don't have to decorate the back if you don't want to.


You may laminate the covers if you wish-but you don't have to. Using staples is fine! Just make sure to decorate the front cover :)  I usually only place 3-4 pages in my own fbs, how many pages your fbs have is your choice! Remember the more pages it has, the longer it will take to get home!


You can also include some extras if it's ok with your partner (email them first to find out).

This is for USA swappers only (yes, this includes AK, HI, APO/FPO, and US Territories).

To see the International version of this swap, [click here].


It is a good idea to write your partner a note letting them know the swap name and your name and send it along.


I will angel this swap if necessary, only if you have contacted your partner, have not heard from them within a few days, or have not received your swap within a month (remember, sometimes it takes longer to get mail from around the world.)

You will have one partner. This is an international swap, so you might get a partner in a country other than your own (costing more postage).  By joining, you agree to send anywhere.
Please do not write in the card as you are making it for your partner to use in the future. Please also include an envelope. It can be for any occasion -- you can post here in the comments if there is a certain occasion you are looking for, but it's not guaranteed. It is a good idea to write your partner a note letting them know the swap name and your name and send it along.
Please take care when making this card and make something that you would want to receive yourself!

I will angel this swap if necessary, only if you have contacted your partner, have not heard from them within a few days, or have not received your swap within a month (remember, sometimes it takes longer to get mail from around the world.)

NEW! Site is Being Updated - easier ways to swap

OK, due to lack of interest, and since most swappers of FBs, label bags, etc. prefer to do individual swaps, I'm changing the way we do swaps here. Instead of sending to the moderator and having to wait for me to mail swaps out to everyone, I will just assign you a swapper.  It's up to each of you to complete your swap.  I cannot always "angel" or make-up swaps that get "flaked on" (not sent).

I will post the descriptions of the March swaps tonight, so check back and I'll have more details on how to sign up, etc..... if you're a member of swap-bot, it will kind of run like that.  

Hope to see more active swaps soon!

Update: March 1

Hi everyone, we had a blizzard here yesterday. Apparently it knocked out our Internet. I am typing this from my phone at the moment.

We didn't have any Jan or Feb sign ups. I am disappointed in the lack of interest.

If anyone wants to do a private swap of any of the March swap ideas (left hand column), email me: swappermania @ yahoo.com (take spaces out).

I will also be hosting March swaps in my swap-bot and yahoo groups. You are welcome to join us there.

Happy Swapping!
