*Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join this swap!  Sign-ups are open all month--YAY!  PM me the above questionnaire to get started, and please wait to be accepted into the swap before making any claims. **Please make sure you are not late or flakey in any of your other swaps, and that you have good communication.** This is a super-uber-amazingly-stupendous swap, So Have Fun!  



HOW THIS SWAP WORKS:

Claims are made throughout the month.  You have two weeks from the time you make a claim to send that claim.

You can make as many (or as few, as little as 1) claims as you want throughout the month as long as you never go over your allowed amount of outstanding claims. (An outstanding claim is a card that has not been received; when that card is received your number of outstanding claims goes down leaving you open to bring it back up to 7 or 10.)

Posting pictures of received ATCs is required for this swap.

CLAIMING

1. Claims are made using the following procedure:

Person A (the swap organizer) will begin the swap by posting a list of themes in this swap thread.
Person B will choose a theme from one of A's themes and make a claim by posting his/her own list (see below for formatting of post).
Person C will make a claim on one of B's themes and post his/her own list.
Person D will make a claim on one of C's themes and post his/her own list etc...
This continues through the end of the month.

2. How many claims can be made by each individual:

The number of claims each person is allowed depends on the following criteria:
*Friends of Craftster: 10 claims
*Those who aren't Friends of Craftster: 7 claims
*First time swappers (whether Friends of Craftster or not): 1 claim.  Once the initial claim has been sent, and its new owner has reported it received, the first time swapper is free to make more claims, either 7 or 10 dependent on being an FOC or not.

3. How to make a claim:

A claim post should include the following information:
1. The theme you are choosing and who youre sending it to.
2. Statistical info about your current swap claims status:
Claims = Claims currently outstanding (ie., the number of cards not yet received by their new owners.) (This number goes down each time a claim is received, and up each time you make a claim.)
Sent = anything currently in the mail.
Received = the cards received by the people to whom you've sent them.
3. Your location.
4. Your personal preferences.
5. Your list of themes


SAMPLE CLAIMS POST:


Quote
I claim GenericFabulosaSwap per for heffalumps/weasels ATC.  

3 claims, 2 sent, 1 received

I live in Massachusetts, USA.  I would prefer not to receive anything violent, political, or religious.  

My themes are:
1)   New Years Baby
2)   Resolutions
3)   Food w/ Faces
4)   Inspiring Quotes
5)   Your Favorite Medium
ONCE YOU HAVE MADE A CLAIM:

1. Send a personal message to the person you have claimed and request their address.
2. You have 2 weeks to complete each card, and have it in the mail to its new owner.  


ONCE YOU HAVE SENT OR RECEIVED A CARD
1. Please PM the organizer when you send or receive a card.
    (It's also good form to notify the person you received from or are sending to.)  
2.  Please include one of these at the title of the message: May ATC Swap--Sent or May ATC Swap--Received
     Be sure to include the month!
3.Be sure and include the following in each pm to the organizer:
  • (1)"send by" date
  • (2)theme
  • (3)sender
  • (4)receiver

For example, you could use this format:
Quote
I sent some ATCs today!  

DUE DEC 16:
MeCraftsterMemberBl oop --> YowzaSwapper (fantasmic theme)

DUE DEC 17:
MeCraftsterMemberBl oop --> WowwieSwapsper (stupendous theme)
MeCraftsterMemberBl oop -->WooHooYeeHawSwapper (yet another fascinating theme)

PLEASE REMEMBER TO INCLUDE THIS IN EVERY PM!!!

This lets the organizer easily access the swap info, so it can be updated.  

POSTING PIX OF ATCs RECEIVED
It is OH so important to post pictures of the amazing cards you receive!  This is the best way in the world to let it be known how special it is that you've received a wonderful treasure of someone else's creativity!  

Please post pictures/scans of your received cards in the swap (or make arrangements with your partner to do so).

FEEDBACK
Positive feedback will be given when all of the cards you sent have been received.   Good communication is always cool!  And be sure and post those pictures in the swap!

ANY QUESTIONS?
If you have any questions please post them in the discussion thread or PM the organizer, kosmicgirl.  This thread is specifically for claims only.

Last swapper to make a claim in May was Pioneer9, so she get's to start of June with a bang! Smiley




I live in NJ, USA. I have a huge ATC collection that I'm always looking to add to. Please no overtly religious or political cards. Also I store my cards in baseball card sleeves in a binder, so no ultra-thick or movable (i.e. ones that open or pop-up) cards, please.

*Themes I'm collecting in all mediums, so do whatever you're best at Smiley (hand drawn, collage, mixed media, stamped, digital, whatever):
-the British TV show Life on Mars
-the British TV show Being Human (particularly Hal/ Tom/ Alex)
-the TV show Carnivale
-the TV show Supernatural
-the TV show Hannibal
-the Hunger Games trilogy (the books-- no movie images, please)
-the Beatles
-hedgehogs
-gargoyles
-reading
-Canada
-vintage bicycles

*Themes I'm collecting hand drawn cards only:
-the TV show Farscape
-the TV show Firefly
-the TV show Battlestar Galactica (the newer version)
-the TV show Game of Thrones
-the TV show Torchwood (but not the Miracle Days reincarnation)


**Please know that I do not have a digital camera or scanner and therefore cannot post gallery pictures. Please take pictures/ scans before sending. Sorry for the inconvenience!**

Hi all!  I live in South Texas, and I joined Craftster almost a year ago.  Before then, I had never even heard of an ATC, but I fell in love with the idea of this medium since finding this swap.  As long as it's not hateful, I'm open to whatever you'd like to include in my card.  If you'd like some more info on me, check out my Pinterest, and you'll get an idea of what I'm in to.

My themes for this month are:

New: Angels, Saints, or the Virgin Mary
New: Anpanman (Japanese cartoon he's very cute! I especially love Baikinman)
New: Sailor Moon
New: I Love Lucy
New: The Muppets
New: Clever 50's Housewives/Moms (think funny, witty, snarky, sarcastic I have a board for this on Pinterest)
New: Magic the Gathering (reproduction of your favorite card, your original card, or an altered card are all cool)
Disney Gender Swap
Wizard of Oz
Richard Scarry
Loteria card (any topic you choose, in the style of a loteria card)

16. Famous Pets
17. Keys
18. A unique google homepage that google would never use. (you know how they do speical ones on some days that look more like pictures then the word google? Think like that.)
