So after doing a bit of snooping, I see that there was an open Paper & Ephemera Swap that morphed into the International one where the partners were more specific. What I'd love to do is organize an open one where the partnering is more random and not restricted to country.

The basic idea! Fill a standard sized (8.5 x 11 inches) manilla envelope with as much Paper & Ephemera goodness as you can cram in there.

Galleries from previous rounds:
Round 1
Round 2
Round 3

I hope there is some interest 'cause I love paper! Smiley

The lack of response is woeful.  Undecided I'd want to start once we have at least 4 people, hopefully more though.

I would love to join this swap.  I am a newbie and can only choose one swap to join first.  I've finally been a member for 30 days.  Please consider me.

Yay! Interest! I'm excited now. Smiley

angel, all you need is another 5 posts. I recommend reading over the Swap Info Guide to everyone since the rules for swapping recently changed.

Ok, I'm going camping for a week at the start of August. What if we aimed to have sign-ups after I get back, say the week of August 14? Do a 2 week sign-up, then a 2-week to send thing. How does that sound to everyone?

I would so be into an August swap after I finish my first one-I was sad to miss the international one.

Keep me posted...I love paper goodies. Hertrigger, you could cut the paper down to fit, and keep the extra scraps for yourself!  Wink

I make ALOT of journals which need 12x12, so i would be more into getting 12x12's than anything Smiley

I might join, just to get some extra paper. I made a proposal for a paper swap in the new themes and she sent me here, which wasnt what i was proposing, but this looks fun too!

I would be VERY interested in this.  I have a ton of paper and such!  (Even 12x12's!)  So if the envelope size were to go up on this, I'd be cool with that too!

That's what I was thinking -- going up on envelope size so the 12 x 12s would fit.

*wanders off to do some checking*

Ok, looks like it's possible to find 12" x 15.5" kraft envelopes. Now we could do this a couple ways. One, have the minimum size be 8" x 10" with an option to go to the 12" x 15.5" size for certain partners. Two, we can have 12" x 15.5" be the envelope size and if you don't have 12" x 12"s you just stuff with what you do have.

Opinions?

I think for organizing purposes, it would be easiest for you if we just did a standard envelope size -- but either way is fine with me! Cheesy

I think make 8x10 the minimum, and then if the partners want to send the 12 x 15.5 they can, let it be an option:)

I think the 8x10 would be the best. It could also just depend on who you have as a partner-and work it out between both of you.

I enjoyed doing Round 3 of this swap and would definitely recommend it especially to "newbies" b/c it's a quick and easy way to get that all-important first swap on your profile.
