I saw the card samples you put in the sampler in the sneak peeks! They are so cute! Now I'm sad that I didn't contribute this month!!!

Hmmmm I'm tempted, although I don't like to have too many swaps going at once. Am I right in interpreting this as a pretty small one ie.. just 5 individual cards with envelopes? I'd hate to interpret it that way and be wrong and dissapoint someone.

Yep, that's it!  I wanted something small where you still get the thrill of swapping (and for me, getting mail Smiley ) but I also wanted to keep postage low.

EDIT:  That means sending 5 cards to one person, right?  Just wanted to make sure that's clear!

OH!  I REAAALLLY wanna do this one!  I have an ultra-boring desk job and have been spending my summer making cards (for no real reason) out of my handmade paper... but I just discovered craftster and probably only have like 4 posts... is there a way to find out how many posts i have?  I guess I won't be able to do this one , but I'll save some of the cards and try to do another!

Hey - you have 6 posts and need to have 15 and be a member of Craftster for one month.  Don't worry, I think this one will be repeated a little later!

OK, partners are posted, PMs have been sent, and an "in progress" should show up on your swap feedback - if one of these has not happened for you, please PM me as soon as possible!

Happy Crafting!

What I used to do (before I discovered templates, and also the wonderful store-bought envelopes) is tear apart an old envelope, trace around it, and then glue together.  It works.  And, if it doesn't, I don't think your partner will be too concerned?

Hmmm....I'm feeling so NOT creative now. I decorated some of my envelopes, but never thought to make them!

Mine were done Friday, but I didn't have time to go to the post office cause I was moving my furniture to my new apartment this weekend. It's really a miracle they survived as they kept getting moved from one surface to another as that piece of furniture was moved out into the truck. At one point my boyfriend put them into this tin he found, then thought better of it and took them out, but his book was in the tin. Later that night he picked up his book and it was totally ruined cause the tin has some spill in it, but the card were unharmed...
Hopefully their protection will help my cards on their way to Australia Smiley

Okay... so I finally got the time to make my cards... I'm sending them tomorrow.
 

I like them... but I think others might think they're simple/ugly.
Le sigh, oh well. I'm really nervous about it.
