Swap name: Journal Prompts - Round 2
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Smmarrt
Sign-up date range: 3/31/13 - 4/12/13
Date to send item by: 5/15/13

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO

Additional Age requirement? Craftster rules

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: NO
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: NO
- Does not have any negative feedback: NO
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: Not required for paper swaps, but you may if you prefer
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:

Make a set of two cards (altered playing cards or ATC-sized, 2.5" by 3.5") for each of your partners with a journalling prompt on one side and a completed prompt on the other side. These cards can be for art journals or junk journals or writers' journals. We will be in groups of four (or three, depending on the amount of folks who sign up) and you can sign up for two groups. You can make the cards all the same or different for each partner. (I will split the groups as best I can - again it depends on the amount of people swapping.)

However, remember, that you are decorating/altering BOTH sides of the playing cards so that is 4 sides per partner. If you are in two groups of four people, that's 2 x 8 x 2 = 32 sides. You do not have to include your name and date on the cards, like you do with ATCs.

Here is the link to the first swap discussion: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=417828.0#axzz2P9SpEjrH
Here is the link to the first swap gallery: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=419093.0#axzz2P9XMZjfl

Please do not punch holes in the cards - leave them intact. The receiver may want to keep them in a box rather than on a ring. The cards should be fairly flat - so flat embellishments okay (ribbons, small buttons, brads or lace) but please try to avoid fat embellishments - big buttons, charms or other bulky items.

Please communicate with your partners about sending extras - they are so nice to receive but not everyone can afford the extra postage. Communication is key to a great swap - please post in this discussion thread weekly and check out the gallery when it opens. You can begin prepping your cards but you may want to wait for your partners' questionnaires before completing the cards.

A few more things:

1 - Thanks to mini-mum for the swap design and parameters. I took a lot of what I said above from her.

2 - I found a pack of playing cards at the thrift store yesterday for 99-cents. So look there first before buying new. I think a pack of Bicycle or other brands costs about $3.99 at the chain stores. You can also use baseball card-sized cards - if you have access to them. I often see bags of football, baseball or Yu-gi-oh cards at the thrift store.

3 - Playing cards are different shapes and sizes - rounded corners on all 4 corners or just on two corners, for example. Don't freak out if you realize you are using two different decks and they are designed differently.

Just sent in my questionnaire, I look forward to participating in this swap! Yesterday I was at a second hand store and I bought this box of different game pieces for my scrapbooking stash, and it also included a pack of playing cards. So I am good to go Smiley

Thanks for inviting me Smiley I'm going to have to sit this one out. I'm nowhere near good enough at ATC's lol. Plus, my personal life is still totally screwed up, and the depression that causes... while I'm doing okay right now, I dare not sign up until I know I won't fall into a pit of depressed apathy in the midst of the swap Sad

Can't wait to see what everyone does though!
