2018 Hybrid Calendar ATC Swap

93 posts in this topic

It's back!!!!! The atc sized calendar is perfect for a desk or windowsill. It is a cute idea for you OR great to give as a gift!

Description: ATC Calendar Pages
Quantity: You will be making a total of 12 identical ATC cards for the month you choose.

* The calendar portion will measure 1.25 x 1.5 inches
and placement of that calendar on the ATC is your choice. The rest of the card can be designed/decorated any way you want within the guidelines of the "requirements" listed below using your favorite SG collection and embellishments. I will provide you with a correct size calendar sheet for you to print and cut for your cards.

** Special design notes - the calendar is designed to be oriented in the landscape position. Please leave the top 1/2 inch of the card free of embellishments
so holes can be punched for the book rings. (See photos below) DO NOT PUNCH your own holes. We will do that for you so that all calendar cards will be uniform and fit the base. We will make your base and ship it to you along with the cards being swapped out. If you already have a base and don't want another one, just let me know. YOU WILL NEED TO PROVIDE your own rings (don't mail the rings – just hang onto them!)

If you would like to see some examples of past cards, you can find them here.

Requirements:
Standard size ATC is 3.5 x 2.5, please use a good base card-stock and provide at least 2 layers of card-stock. Remember to sign and date the back of your card!

Deadlines:
Sign up: October 9th
Due in my hand no later than November 10th. Any cards I do not have by the deadline will be replaced by a new swapper. In order to have the cards back to the participants in time for the holidays, we can not delay the deadline.

These need to be in my hands by November 10th. I will swap them out within a week so. If all are received early, they will be swapped out at that time. Again, would like to get them swapped out asap to avoid the holiday mailing rush!!

Mailing instructions:
Place your 12 ATC cards in a plastic zip-lock baggie to prevent any possible water damage. Include a SASE with at least the same amount of postage as it took to mail to Carla + 2 additional stamps. All unused postage will be returned.

Please feel free to PM me with any questions you have.

As you call out in this thread which month you want, I will edit this post to reflect who has which month and which months are still available. Again, first come (call out) gets first dibs on a particular month. Once you see your name on the list you can start making your 12 cards. Send me a PM with your email address so I can email you the calendar grid for your month and send you my new mailing address. The sooner they get to me, the sooner you get your complete calendar back!!

January: Brooke
February: Ann

March: Tina
April:Dianne
May: Lei
June: Lauren
July: Carla
August: Carla
September: Mikelle

Carla, I have October finished. I can do one or even 2 more months if you don't have enough signed up to make a full 12 cards. If no one else wants May I can do that one. Let me know if you need me to do 2 months.

It looks like there are a few openings left, so I'll give it a go. How about March?

Plenty of time! We aren't mailing overseas this year, so I'm not as concerned with the mail as I have been in the past!

So I worked on mine yesterday and ready to print them out. However, when I was just about ready to leave for work this morning I caught Cookie eating my card stock I had pulled out. I had just enough but now I have to buy more. 🙄

Too funny, sounds like Cookie is getting some fiber in her diet. :)  I'll be working on March this week.

Kelly and Mikelle and Tina, you gave me a laugh, thanks!

Now that anniversary is over I'm going to start working on mine.  Right now my laptop isn't cooperating and needs some more "fix" but we're working on it.

Well, mine didn't actually make it into the mail today, but they are closer to Carla! I'm driving to So. Cal and have them ready to drop into the first mail box I come across. Fun times with Maggie! This is a big step forward for me...a solo trip.
