Spring Hybrid ATC Swap!

Recommended Posts

The theme for the Spring Hybrid ATC Swap is: April Showers Brings May Flowers! I'm not going to give any suggestions or examples this time....you are free to go in any creative direction you want (as always, lol)!


If you are interested in joining us, here are some things to know:


The best way to do this seems to be to buy the 9 slot baseball trading card holders. They are designed to fit into a standard 3 ring binder. You can fold the sheets in thirds and fit them into a business sized envelope. Please include return postage in one of the slots, allowing for an extra ounce in case participants are especially exuberant with their bling. If it's not needed, I will return it with your goodies. Also please include a self-addressed envelope. We've found that the larger 6x9 envelopes work better than business sized envelopes but the postage rate is the same. When you mail the envelope to me, the post office people will tell you if there's a non-machinable surcharge. A great hint is to use your own address as the return address in case it gets "returned" for any reason.


Sign up in this thread by Monday, April 25th. On April 26th, I'll PM everyone and let you know how many to make and my address. Please have them to me by June 1st! If I get them all sooner, I'll return them to you sooner. May and June are usually pretty busy in my house, but this year will be even more so with the move in July, so please don't wait until the last minute to send them!!


Who's in??

Took the leap...now everyone should stand aside...I'm puttin'' on the glitz!

Thanks Kelly! Mine is awol, too, but I'm so busy it probably is scared to show itself! I hope the movers remember to pack it for me!

We miss having your cards, Ngaire! But I completely understand!

Oh I really have enjoyed my times when I have done these but unfortunately it just gets too expensive for me with the postage but I hope that we get to see what you all do. There is some beautiful work that gets done with these little cards. Have fun everyone.

I just want to put in a little friendly pitch in here .... I think most of you know that Carla is moving sometime this summer so we all need to be very committed to the deadlines set for the swap so there is not added stress on Carla and that there is not potential for ATCs getting lost in the forwarded mail by extending beyond the deadline date. We so appreciate Carla doing this for us!

I am toying with the idea of trying to do something WAY, WAY, WAY out of my comfort zone. I'll let you know.


Lol -- aren't you brave. I also was inspired by a fun idea--now to get it to work the way I want it! Might have to recruit help from my mom, the Expert!! :)

Mine are done. Tom was gone all day yesterday so I was able to crank them out. It is funny ... they didn't turn out at all how I started out ... they sort of evolved into something different. They will be in tomorrow's mail, Carla!

Brooke finished hers yesterday, too. Dh and Lauren were gone all day for softball, so she did her cards. There is no school on Friday, so Lauren will do hers then. Mine are almost finished.
