hi,

Came across this idea on another site and wondered if anyone would be interested.

Basically you alter playing cards - put a journalling prompt on one side and 'do' the prompt on the other. We all end up with lots of different prompts and lots of ideas for using them.

This sounds like a lot of fun. However, I'm not sure if I would have an opening anytime soon.  Undecided

This sounds fun! Would we have more than one partner? Would it be only one card per person or what? Not quite understanding the particulars, but sounds like fun!

This sounds fun! Would we have more than one partner? Would it be only one card per person or what? Not quite understanding the particulars, but sounds like fun!

the site I saw it on did a 13 card swap - but cards sent to organiser who then shuffled them and sent back out, which I don't really like, and isn't allowed on here.

From formats that I've seen on here there are a couple that I like:
with set partners and a set number of cards per partners (probably up to 3 partners and up to 3 cards each)
with a group of up to 5 swappers, each sending 1 or 2 cards to each, with the opportunity to join more than one group depending on previous feedback and FOC status (would want a co-org for this one).

I would go with the most popular option but either way it would be up to each person as to how many cards they wanted to swap.
It would be a stalking free swap (you choose the prompt, and interpret it your way), so it would be possible to start crafting now if people wanted :p


I would also be looking to run further rounds if it went down well, so that people have the opportunity to complete a whole pack of cards.

I do to.

think even doing the cards would help break me out of my current comfort zone, especially if I chose prompts that challenged me!

I like the idea of swapping groups. And I'm totally up for this.

And I found this: http://www.craftycupid.com/index.php/cc/entry/alttered-playing-cards-for-journal-prompts/

I think we can skip the hole-punching and personally, I would decorate both sides.

Great link Smmarrt - thank you Smiley

I agree - skip the hole punching, and I probably would do both sides as well

I like this link & also the hole, but after done decorating both sides. I would either put it in a cover like the baseball card holders & them punch a hole & put them on a ring or a shower curtain circle. I've use them to make a ring for a baby ring that has pics of family & friends etc. Just a thought. I do love the idea!  Cheesy

this would be fun for that slump after christmas.i've been doing artist trading cards at about this size and it's a fun way to challenge yourself without a big commitment.
i also just did a minibook of playing cards for the breaking dawn swap with quotes from the books. i punch a hole in the upper left, and lower left corners, and put the cards on metal rings i bought in the school supply section so you can flip through it easilly, or fold it open to the page you wanted.

a 1" ring held and entire deck of cards. i only finished the hearts, but the person i gave it to can add to the quotes. the more i did the more fun i had with it. i don't have a picture, but the queen of hearts has bellas face. since i was making a book, i decorated the facing page instead of the back of the card but i think it could still work for this

This sounds like a really great idea! I haven't really gotten in to art journaling or otherwise but I'd like to write more than I do and have lots of paper supplies. Prompts would probably really help with this!

ok folks - I'm all finished with my swaps for this year, so I'm gonna get started on this one.

I think I will do groups of up to 5 people, sending 2 cards to each person (thats 8 cards for each of us to send out and receive) with people being allowed to join up to 3 groups (24 card commitment)

I will take a couple of days to sort out complete details for swap than post with sign-ups until New Year and send out mid Jan. As this will be a stalking free swap it should be easy to crack on with before partners assigned Smiley

I may well be looking for a co-org, anyone interested?

I could probably co-org with you. It's been awhile since I've organized but I wouldn't think this one would be too bad.

Let me know if you still need someone.
