I don't know about you, but I love paper! What I would really like is for you to just send me all your papercrafting supplies to play with, but since that's unlikely why don't we do some swapping?  Cheesy

I was thinking of something like last year's epic, painless and fun Altering Paper Crafts Supply Swap, thought up and organized by the delightful Casey1201.

Interested?

This is an active swap now- please join us!

Um, YES! Smiley

I get too overwhelmed when I set out to buy my paper crafting supplies...all the patterns, stamps, etc...just too much to choose from! If I don't have to think about it, that makes it even better! Smiley

I know, it was chock-full of paper awesomeness, wasn't it?
I'm pretty flexible on dates.... maybe sign-ups late July?

That timeframe sounds good. Just as long as I"m done by last week of September. Son is getting married in October, so I don't want anything (swaps) hanging over my head then.

I will! Smiley

I'm thinking maybe start signups July 27th and run them for about ten days, then give about two weeks to fill your box and craft one small papercrafted item, so sendouts would be around August 22nd. Does that sound good? I'm trying to plan ahead and also give everyone a heads up so you can leisurely start looking through your supplies.

That sounds wonderful! I wasn't going to sign up for any swaps after the last one I completed, but I just can't help myself. And this one seems so low-stress and fun Smiley

Definately join! I don't plan to do more paper crafting than inchies and altered matchboxes, so I have a TON of scrapbook paper up for trading.  Cheesy

Heh... I just realized that there was a Paper and Ephemera Swap in March, organized by Staar. It was Round 8. It takes rare talent to overlook 8 of something.  Cheesy

Sign-ups for this swap start next week!
I think I'm going to give the option of sending either a 10"x13" manila envelope (I think that's the standard size) or a regular business envelope (like for a letter), so those who are trying to keep postage costs down can still play, as can international Craftsters. I'm also thinking two partners, and you can decide if you want to send two big envies or one big & one small, or two small. Or just one of either! Smiley

What do you think about some sort of option where you can give more than you get- like if you (like me!) have tons of stuff that you're willing to share, you can say "I don't mind getting a partner who doesn't have tons of stuff to share, but is willing to ...I don't know, make a set of inchies maybe, in exchange for a lot of papery goodness? Sort of a paper givers and needers? Or should that just be a separate swap?

I would so be up for that option of givers and needers.

The main thing in my stash is a bunch of scrapbooking paper, I'm missing all the other good stuff! So up to make a ton of inchies for my partner/s.

I would be interested if there was a givers and needers option.  I have been looking into papercrafting, just never got around to it. I've also been checking out the inchies and thinking I would like to try that.  I will keep a look out for this and may join!

I would be willing to do this either way!
I think this would be a really good first swap since I wasnt able to sign up for the stuff an envelope swap. Look forward to the sign up.

Hey- I have signups open now! Smiley Had a minor emergency, so I had to start it a day late, but I've extended everything 1 day, so we should be good. There's a Givers/Needers option too! Smiley
Signup thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=386971.0

Come play!


Marley, one of the options is to do a regular-size envelope, just like the envie swap. Smiley

I did the Altering Papercrafts Supply Swap way back when... and I had just come on here to suggest another round. I'm so sad I missed this one! Hopefully everyone will want another round quite soon!
