*When sending sent/receive notifications to the swap organizer, there are four juicy pieces of information that must be included about each ATC.  What are they?
(Scroll down in the swap info under this questionnaire to the area "Once you have sent or received a card"; the answer is in red.):


*Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join this swap!  Sign-ups are open all month--YAY!  PM me the above questionnaire to get started, and please wait to be accepted into the swap before making any claims. **Please make sure you are not late or flakey in any of your other swaps, and that you have good communication.** This is a super-uber-amazingly-stupendous swap, So Have Fun!  



HOW THIS SWAP WORKS:

Claims are made throughout the month.  You have two weeks from the time you make a claim to send that claim.

You can make as many (or as few, as little as 1) claims as you want throughout the month as long as you never go over your allowed amount of outstanding claims. (An outstanding claim is a card that has not been received; when that card is received your number of outstanding claims goes down leaving you open to bring it back up to 7 or 10.)

Posting pictures of received ATCs is required for this swap.

CLAIMING

1. Claims are made using the following procedure:

Person A (the swap organizer) will begin the swap by posting a list of themes in this swap thread.
Person B will choose a theme from one of A's themes and make a claim by posting his/her own list (see below for formatting of post).
Person C will make a claim on one of B's themes and post his/her own list.
Person D will make a claim on one of C's themes and post his/her own list etc...
This continues through the end of the month.

2. How many claims can be made by each individual:

The number of claims each person is allowed depends on the following criteria:
*Friends of Craftster: 10 claims
*Those who aren't Friends of Craftster: 7 claims
*First time swappers (whether Friends of Craftster or not): 1 claim.  Once the initial claim has been sent, and its new owner has reported it received, the first time swapper is free to make more claims, either 7 or 10 dependent on being an FOC or not.

3. How to make a claim:

A claim post should include the following information:
1. The theme you are choosing and who youre sending it to.
2. Statistical info about your current swap claims status:
Claims = Claims currently outstanding (ie., the number of cards not yet received by their new owners.) (This number goes down each time a claim is received, and up each time you make a claim.)
Sent = anything currently in the mail.
Received = the cards received by the people to whom you've sent them.
3. Your location.
4. Your personal preferences.
5. Your list of themes


SAMPLE CLAIMS POST:

5)   Your Favorite Medium
ONCE YOU HAVE MADE A CLAIM:

1. Send a personal message to the person you have claimed and request their address.
2. You have 2 weeks to complete each card, and have it in the mail to its new owner.  


ONCE YOU HAVE SENT OR RECEIVED A CARD
1. Please PM the organizer when you send or receive a card.
    (It's also good form to notify the person you received from or are sending to.)  
2.  Please include one of these at the title of the message: August ATC Swap--Sent or August ATC Swap--Received
     Be sure to include the month!
3.Be sure and include the following in each pm to the organizer:
  • (1)"send by" date

DUE DEC 17:
MeCraftsterMemberBl oop --> WowwieSwapsper (stupendous theme)
MeCraftsterMemberBl oop -->WooHooYeeHawSwapper (yet another fascinating theme)

PLEASE REMEMBER TO INCLUDE THIS IN EVERY PM!!!

This lets the organizer easily access the swap info, so it can be updated.  

POSTING PIX OF ATCs RECEIVED
It is OH so important to post pictures of the amazing cards you receive!  This is the best way in the world to let it be known how special it is that you've received a wonderful treasure of someone else's creativity!  

Please post pictures/scans of your received cards in the swap (or make arrangements with your partner to do so).

FEEDBACK
Positive feedback will be given when all of the cards you sent have been received.   Good communication is always cool!  And be sure and post those pictures in the swap!

Glad you like it Smiley
I bought some glitter paste on a whim a few months back...  I don't know why,  to be honest. It's supposed to work on all kinds of stuff,  even washable on fabric. Your card was just me experimenting Cheesy

The moth wall art is fantastic! And the brooch is definitely drool worthy Smiley

I received th BEST birthday ATC ever! You ROCK my world rockingbearranch!

Behold the birthday bonanza:



There was an amazing mixed media card (the text reads: "A little bird told me it's your birthday... please don't tell anyone I talk to birds") It has a special place on the shelf over my crafting space! I love it!
And then a movable, openable Cake ATC. Perfect! Very sweet.
There were plenty of cool extras, and awesome circus stamps that got plenty of ooooh's and aaaah's around here Smiley

Thanks a million, you're the best!  Kiss Kiss Kiss

Ok, my computer went completely INSANE. I tried my best but things just got worse. I ended up having to do a complete wipe and put my computer back to factory settings. Sigh, so much stuff lost. Well at least it looks like I can make claims without issue now though.

Sorry to hear that!
