Details of swap:
Let's swap paper and ephemera!  If you love paper, this is the swap for you.

The concept is simple, take a 9 x 12 (or A4/C4 size if outside of North America) manila envelope and stuff it with paper goodness, including random interesting Ephemera!  (What's ephemera?  My dictionary defines it as "items designed to be useful or important for only a short time, esp. pamphlets, notices, tickets, etc.").  We'll be swapping scrapbook paper, wrapping paper, artist paper, handmade paper, magazine cutouts, book pages, tickets, brochures, etc.  Anything made out of paper that a paper crafter could make use of is fair game.  I encourage you to discuss preferences with your partner and try to accomdate them, but that isn't strictly required.

- You will have one partner for this swap.  You'll send one envelope of paper & ephemera to your partner, and you will receive one in return.

- You can choose to send and receive a larger envelope to accommodate 12 x 12 inch (approximately 30 x 30 centimeters) sheets of paper.  I will try to match up people who prefer the larger size, but I cannot promise to do so.  It will depend on how many people have this preference.

- Please indicate if you have any preferences about what you'd like to receive (for example, if you'd prefer minimal scrapbook paper or no solids or all solids or non-English language texts or whatever).  I will try to match people up by preferences, but again I cannot promise to do so.  It will depend on what the whole group looks like.  I encourage you to talk to your partner about your preferences.

Here is the "new swap theme" discussion thread for this swap:

Here is the gallery from round 4 of this swap:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=117597.0;topicseen

Important Information:

1. Delivery Confirmation Numbers will be required for swap packages that are being sent within the United States. If youre sending a package to another country, or if you dont reside in the United States, please save your receipts!  Remember to send the DCN info to your swap partner and the organizer, Katxena!

Shipping Tip For US Residents: The USPS requires that the package measures at least thick for a DCN if you don't use priority mail.  If your package is too flat, it might be necessary to bulk up the package with a couple of plastic grocery bags to get the DCN!

Shipping Tip for Sending TO Canada: Canadian Customs really, really likes getting their cut ($5 handling fee plus taxes on the declared value). Please remember to mark your customs form with gift and NCV (No Commercial Value) or NA (Not Applicable) when sending to Canada.

For US swappers sending to Canada: The name of the form is Custom Declaration CN-22 (PS Form 2976) and is green and white. But you have to fill it out at the post office, you can't get it off the USPS website.

2. It is important to communicate with your partners and the organizer.  You must let the organizer and your partner know when you have shipped, received or may be late! You are  responsible for sending out the swap package in a timely manner!

3. I will be leaving feedback based on communication and shipping. Theres no way to over-communicate with me.

4. Please, send what youd like to receive -- dont use the swap as a chance to get rid of lousy stuff.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

Name of swap: 
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:

1.  Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?

2.  Would you *prefer* shipping to an address outside your own country?

3.  Do you want to swap 12x12 inch (30x30 cm) paper?

4.  Do you have any preferences about what kind of paper or ephemera you'd like to receive? (for example, "I'd prefer to not get cardstock" or "I really don't need any more scrapbook paper" or "I'm desperately seeking anything in Tamil" or "I really need scrapbook paper")

5.  Do you have any specific preferences about what you would like to send? (for example, "I have lots of non-English language stuff" or "I have tons of scrapbook paper" or "I have no scrapbook paper")

I will PM your partner's information to you shortly.  I've done the best I can to match up everyone's mailing, receiving and sending preferences.  The matches aren't always perfect, but I don't think there are any that are very far off.

I don't think there is!  I'm excited about this swap.  I'm going to hit the thrift shop on my way home and look for a new foreign language book -- any excuse to aquire more ephemera!
