Hosting a Journal Card Swap

Half of the participants dropped out on short notice, did not respond, etc.  Overall there were 7 of us.  Here is a samples of our swap (#7 stack is not shown)
I created 2 sets and sent a stamp card.
Stamp is by Technique Tuesday - This is Life by Ali Edwards


I've decided to  host a Journal Card Swap!  I've participated in ATC and Card Swaps in the past.  This time I am trying something different and easy. I've posted this information on my facebook page and here.  

Journal Cards can be used in a variety of ways: Scrapbooking, SMASH books, Project Life, Journals, etc.  

Theme: Anything general for daily journaling. *Future swaps will have a theme.
  •   Journal Card Dimensions: anything between 3" x 4" and 4 x 6”, horizontal or vertical. Please include an area for journaling or small photo.
  •  Include a minimum of 3 techniques such as washi tape, stamping, inking, layering, punch, embossing, embellishment, etc. = Endless possibilities!
  • Quantity will be determine once the sign-up list is closed. If we have a large group we will have groups of 10, 12, or 15. I will take a poll to determine.
  •  Sign-up date is now and ends October 14, 2012.
  • Due to the hostess on Nov. 5.
  • The journal cards will go out the same week IF all journal cards are received on time.
**Please sign up ONLY if you can commit.

  •  Place all cards in a plastic bag with your name.
  • All journaling cards will be mailed to the hostess. The address will be sent to all participants. Enclose enough postage to cover the return swapped cards. Unused postage will be returned to you.
  • Mail your cards in a sturdy mailing piece.
If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

Operation Christmas Card Drive 2012

Join us for Crop Night to create and donate cards to our Troops. 
All our Michael's Stores will be collecting cards for our Troops from Sept. 4 till Oct. 31. Visit your local Michaels and drop off your donated cards :-).
