This is a thankful swap, with your level of participation determined entirely by you, with a minimum of one card for the month. People of all levels of card making are welcome. Sign ups are open all month. Please make sure you are not late or flaky in any of your other swaps, and that you have good communication.

Artist trading cards can be made by anyone, from any material, with any method. The official card is the size of a rectangular baseball card, 2.5 by 3.5 inches done in a cardstock weight paper. This swap tends to openly interpret what that means. We have seen cards made from nature, sewn, woven, and knitted, pop ups, movables, mini books, stained glass, clay, and even a 4-d dollhouse room. Preferences can be mentioned when you make a claim.

INFO

The Swap FAQs are HERE! - Everything you need to know about swapping.
The ATC FAQs are HERE! - Everything you need to know about ATCs.


~~~ Common lingo ~~~

atc: artist trading card.

ac: artist's choice, in claiming the creator chooses any theme but sticks to requests like flat cards only or hand-drawn only.

tbd: to be determined, in claiming the artist will pick from the theme list later.

kid card or card made by kiddos: only allowed where the theme list specifically mentions that they would like a kid card. Kid cards are always welcome as extras and should be posted in the gallery.

bulky: are cards that will not fit in a plastic baseball card sleeve

*How soon should you post pictures of the cards you receive?
*When sending sent/received messages to the swap organizer, there are four pieces of information that must be included about each swap.  What are they?

CLAIMING
Begin claiming when the organizer replies to your questionnaire or the swap appears in your profile in the list of active swaps. Claims are made throughout the month.  You have two weeks from the time you make a claim to send that claim. Look at the date on the calendar, it is the date that is directly 2 rows down.

You can make one claim or as many 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. Remember that you must make one claim!

Claims are made using the following procedure:

Person A (the swap organizer) will begin the swap by posting a list of themes in this claiming thread.
Person B will choose a theme from one of A's themes and make a claim by posting his/her own list.
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 when the swap organizer makes the final claim and closes out the claiming part of the swap.

The number of claims each person is allowed depends on the following criteria:

*Maximum of 10 claims outstanding (ie. not sent)
*New swappers : 1 claim.  Once the initial claim has been received, and its new owner has reported it received, the new swapper is free to make more claims. You may be considered a new swapper if you have not been swapping or active for over a year.

STEP 3:
How to make a claim:
After being approved, make a claim like this! You are only claiming the person who was the last to post, for one card. You are allowed to send whatever extras you desire.

SAMPLE CLAIMS POST
Quote
I claim Wowwieparadesper for gargling gargoyles.

3/2/1 (that represents: 3 claims made in total so far this month, 2 sent, 1 received)

I live in Grand Ledge, MI, USA.  I would prefer not to receive anything violent, political, religious, or with spiders.

My themes are:
Bunnies in clothes
Bunnies with wings
Bunicorns

Never been picked:
Fluffy turkeys
Happy travels


STEP 4:
Send a personal message to the person you have claimed and request their address.

STEP 5:
Make the card and mail it. PM the organizer and partner when you send or receive a card. (This was in the original rules. I don't actually need the 'sent Cards; message if you find it hard to remember. It helps if cards get lost in the mail.)

Be sure and include (1) the "send by" date, as well as (2) the theme and (3)who sent it to (4)whom, in each message to the swap organizer, when you're referring to sent or received cards.

SAMPLE SENT OR RECEIVED PM
Quote
Subject: CURRENT MONTH YEAR Ongoing ATC Swap--Sent

I mailed some cards today!

DUE OCT 16:
MeCraftsterMemberBloop --> Yowzaparadeper (dancing theme)

DUE OCT 17:
MeCraftsterMemberBloop --> Wowwieparadesper (some sorta theme)
MeCraftsterMemberBloop -->WooHooYeeHawparadeper (theme-ee theme)

STEP 6:
POSTING PIX OF ATCs RECEIVED
The most important step!
Posting pictures of received cards is required for this swap. Please post pictures within 3 days or notify your partner that you cannot so they can share their work.

We like to keep things friendly and encouraging. Thank you's and helpful comments about the artwork can be posted in the gallery!

Our Pinterest Pinner is curiousfae! Contact her if you would like to be added to the board. Pinteresting is not a mandatory part of the swap but it's fun.  Smiley


FEEDBACK
Positive feedback will be given when all of the cards you claimed have been received and you have posted pictures of the cards you received. If you are stuck without space for a swap and are biting your nails waiting, just let me know and I will release you asap.

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

ORGANIZED SWAPS / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Sweat Shoppe ORNAMENT Swap Round 10 (green by 11/24, send by 11/27) by GatorWrangler
Date started: October 16, 2019 06:40:50 PM, Replies: 123
In a nut shell the sweat shoppe ornament swap is a grab bag style swap. Everyone crafts 3 or 6 like ornaments, and in return you will receive 3 or 6 different ornaments. Since you don't have to customize for each of your partners, a lot of people like to make their items ahead of time before signups close, but it is your choice.

Swap name:Sweat Shoppe Ornament Swap Round 10 (Ornament)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: GatorWrangler
Sign-up date range: Oct 16 to Nov 4
PM Organizer top picks by: Nov 6, 6pm eastern
Must be finished crafting (green) by: Nov 24
Date to send item by: Nov 27



Limited to a certain number of people? (optional):25

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

All ages allowed? must be over 18

This next part is for me and the Mods...
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: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:

- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES/NO
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES/NO

Details of swap:
~ Each participant will make 3 or 6 like items. For instance, 3 or 6 of 1 kind of ornament, or 3 sets of 1 kind of ornament AND 3 sets of another ornament.
~ Each item/set should be the best representation of your work, and have an estimated retail value of between $7-$10 USD. If you have any doubt, post your item in the business discussion board and see what others there think. Or you may post in the sweat shoppe ornament discussion thread https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=394576.0 ,
~ When sign ups close, I will ask everyone for a 'top picks list'. That list is a wish list, from the items that are offered, and there will be an effort to match to you, as many items on your list, the remainder of items will be randomly placed.
~ Then I will post a list on the forum for about a day. During this time, people can bring any errors to my attention. DO NOT PM ANY PARTNERS DURING THIS TIME UNTIL I GIVE THE OKAY.
~ We have a system for sending early; the master list of swappers will be color coded for those who are ready to receive items. When you are finished crafting, you will PM me, and I will change the color of your name on the master list to green, at that time you may send to any other green/ready person! I will also send out a check in PM for those who are not finished early, and at that time your status will be determined.
~ Make sure to get a Delivery Confirmation number for all Domestic shipments. If the item is International, make sure to save your receipt.
~ Feedback will be given when all items are confirmed as received.
~ Positive feedback will be given for all people complying with the craftster swap guidelines. Late senders will be recorded in the comments section, as will poor communication. If I have to track you down, for confirming you have received or sent items, this is poor communication. When an item arrives at your door, you are expected to PM the sender of an item as well as GatorWrangler, and post in the gallery.
~ there are a lot of veteran sweat shoppers here, if you have any questions please feel free to ask your questions here OR you can PM me!
~ You may put your 'name in the hat' once (for 3 items) or twice (for 6 items)


Please make a sample of what you are offering and post the picture on this thread before signups end so people can make their top picks list. And if you do not feel someone's offering meets swap requirements, please pm me before signups close.

Hello all! Welcome to the Introduction to Masterboard Technique Swap Round 2!

What is a masterboard, you ask:
Masterboard=A large monoprinted page made with the intention to cut into smaller pieces. These pieces can be atcs, squares for notecards, tags, die cuts, etc.  Use your imagination to create a monoprint in any style youd like: gelli print, stamp, splashed paint, collage.
Here are some video examples to get your creative juices flowing:
Here is a helpful video on a gelli printed masterboard.
Here is a helpful video on making a stamped masterboard.
Another video
Here are some links of masterboard pieces to check out:
Craftylittlemonkeys Scrap Bookmarks and lots of mono prints
BigBangMommas A Positive Affirmations Story"
Not from Craftster, but a cool technique


Okay.now that we have a little more of an idea what a masterboard is, lets get into the nitty gritty of the swap:
In this swap you will be creating  (1) 6 inch by 6 inch masterboard for each person  you send to.  You may choose any medium to create your masterboard (cardboard, newspaper, deli paper, book pagethe skys the limit!) The idea is to get a sampling of different monoprint styles that we can use in our own way for crafting.  (If you need to slightly fold or trim slightly (no more than in) to fit in a 6x 9 envelope that is ok.)
*I chose 6x6 because you can create one masterboard on a 12x12  piece and cut into fourths if you choose to.*  Feel free to start creating your masterboards.NOW! This swap is artist's choice.


How much should I expect to pay for shipping in this swap?
 Turns out, not much.
 The link below says we can send up to a 6 1/8 by 11 envelope for one stamp.  Because we can send as letter rate, international shipping is required.

NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Latest News / 10/20/19 - HUGE News for Craftster! by sweets4ever
Date started: October 20, 2019 07:55:15 PM, Replies: 39
Hi, all!  We have some big news to share!  Well, actually, TWO big pieces of news!

Over the last week, you may have noticed we've been testing through various parts of the site.  As of this weekend, the changes are officially in-progress!

1)  We are retiring our FOC (Friends of Craftster) and FFOC (Fanatic Friends of Craftster) subscription options.
2)  We are also retiring the on-site Craftster merchandise shop.

Why are we retiring the FOC program and Craftster merch shop?

On January 1, 2020, the CCPA goes into effect.  Craftster needs to be compliant with it prior to that date.

Huh?  What is the CCPA?  Calico Cats Parade Around?

Sadly, no cute calico cats will be hosting a parade. Cry  For a lengthy description, you can read all about it here.  The much shorter version is this.  Simply put, the CCPA will be the toughest data privacy law in the United States.  It's the big Kahuna of privacy laws.  Businesses either need to be in compliance, or pack up their bags and go home.  There is no leniency or grace with this bad boy.

We decided, instead of trying to bring the site as-is up to compliance and maintain the compliance, we would retire the only two areas of the site affected by it.  The two areas of Craftster are those that accept payment options -- the Membership Subscriptions (FOC) and Merchandise (the Craftster Shop).  By doing this, we will also be able to provide more of our members some exciting features.

But why now, if the CCPA doesn't go into affect until January?  Why the urgency?

Unfortunately, to retire these two areas, it's actually quite an undertaking behind the scenes! (insert sleepy emoji here)  These two changes will affect many links, graphics, memberships, newsletters, and more.  We also need time to submit to legal, Google, etc. That being said, it's still much less than would be affected, if we attempted to achieve and maintain ongoing CCPA compliance with these areas in existence.  And in the instance of CCPA, if you are found to not be in compliance at any point in time, it comes with monstrous fines.  That's a risk we just cannot take for our little home here! Smiley

So what does this mean for me as a member?

We are still working out a few longterm details, but I wanted to get a note up to the community ASAP.  I will update as I have more information available.  Reply to this thread, so you get notified of updates, too!


Cha, cha, cha, changes....

Merchandise Shop
  • The shop is officially closed.
  • IT started removing the links and graphics from around the website that linked to it.
  • We will be removing applicable links and graphics in the newsletters soon as well.
  • We will use all of our merchandise stock for prizes, giveaways and even more contests!! Kiss

FOC/FFOC
  • We will be opening some of the FOC features to the entire community in the future!  Woohoo!  We won't begin this phase until all of our current FOC subscriptions have first expired, though! Kiss  It's very important to me that our current FOC receive the full term of their subscriptions before the features are available to anyone else, and IB fully agrees! Smiley
  • The membership page for purchasing FOC subscriptions has been removed.  No new FOC can be purchased from this point forward.
  • The private FOC chat board is still available to current FOC! Smiley  We did not remove it.  We only removed the avenue to get there (the option to buy a new FOC membership).  In the future, we are still going to keep the private off-topic board, too!! Smiley  After all of our current FOC have expired, the private off-topic boards will be available to a member, if they are logged in + have posted a certain number of posts (much like signatures are only available to members who have posted previously).  We don't want the off-topic boards to be viewable to anyone who isn't a member here! Smiley  No lurkers. Cheesy
  • Current FOC can still turn off ads.  Again, we did not remove the feature, just the avenue to get there (the option to buy a new FOC membership).  I haven't received confirmation if this feature will remain available longterm or not.  Fortunately/unfortunately, ads are a source of income for many websites, and Craftster is not immune to it.  I will update when I have more information on this.
  • FOC was previously granted for Swap Angels, so we are working on a new reward system for those awesome volunteers!  If you have any suggestions, please reply with them here.  Maybe one of the pieces from our retired merchandise shop??  Would really love your input on this!
  • Our cute little profile icons and extra profile information will still be available.  We are currently working on these, so please don't panic, if yours are not appearing right now.
  • From your feedback, we are working on some BRAND NEW features that will be available to everyone!  I'm consuming epic amounts of coffee, and hope to have these available soon! Cheesy

As always, we thank you so much for your love and support.  We (literally) could not do Craftster without you.  If you have any questions, please drop them here or PM me directly.  Like I said, we are still working through some details, but will pass them along as we have them!

DISCUSSION THREAD IS HERE: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=456997.0

This is a thankful swap, with your level of participation determined entirely by you, with a minimum of one card for the month. People of all levels of card making are welcome. Sign ups are open all month. Please make sure you are not late or flaky in any of your other swaps, and that you have good communication.

Artist trading cards can be made by anyone, from any material, with any method. The official card is the size of a rectangular baseball card, 2.5 by 3.5 inches done in a cardstock weight paper. This swap tends to openly interpret what that means. We have seen cards made from nature, sewn, woven, and knitted, pop ups, movables, mini books, stained glass, clay, and even a 4-d dollhouse room. Preferences can be mentioned when you make a claim.

INFO

The Swap FAQs are HERE! - Everything you need to know about swapping.
The ATC FAQs are HERE! - Everything you need to know about ATCs.


~~~ Common lingo ~~~

atc: artist trading card.

ac: artist's choice, in claiming the creator chooses any theme but sticks to requests like flat cards only or hand-drawn only.

tbd: to be determined, in claiming the artist will pick from the theme list later.

kid card or card made by kiddos: only allowed where the theme list specifically mentions that they would like a kid card. Kid cards are always welcome as extras and should be posted in the gallery.

bulky: are cards that will not fit in a plastic baseball card sleeve

CLAIMING
Begin claiming when the organizer replies to your questionnaire or the swap appears in your profile in the list of active swaps. Claims are made throughout the month.  You have two weeks from the time you make a claim to send that claim. Look at the date on the calendar, it is the date that is directly 2 rows down.

You can make one claim or as many 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. Remember that you must make one claim!

Claims are made using the following procedure:

Person A (the swap organizer) will begin the swap by posting a list of themes in this claiming thread.
Person B will choose a theme from one of A's themes and make a claim by posting his/her own list.
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 when the swap organizer makes the final claim and closes out the claiming part of the swap.

The number of claims each person is allowed depends on the following criteria:

*Maximum of 10 claims outstanding (ie. not sent)
*New swappers : 1 claim.  Once the initial claim has been received, and its new owner has reported it received, the new swapper is free to make more claims. You may be considered a new swapper if you have not been swapping or active for over a year.

STEP 3:
How to make a claim:
After being approved, make a claim like this! You are only claiming the person who was the last to post, for one card. You are allowed to send whatever extras you desire.

SAMPLE CLAIMS POST
Quote
I claim Wowwieparadesper for gargling gargoyles.

3/2/1 (that represents: 3 claims made in total so far this month, 2 sent, 1 received)

I live in Grand Ledge, MI, USA.  I would prefer not to receive anything violent, political, religious, or with spiders.

My themes are:
Bunnies in clothes
Bunnies with wings
Bunicorns

Never been picked:
Fluffy turkeys
Happy travels


STEP 4:
Send a personal message to the person you have claimed and request their address.

STEP 5:
Make the card and mail it. PM the organizer and partner when you send or receive a card. (This was in the original rules. I don't actually need the 'sent Cards; message if you find it hard to remember. It helps if cards get lost in the mail.)

Be sure and include (1) the "send by" date, as well as (2) the theme and (3)who sent it to (4)whom, in each message to the swap organizer, when you're referring to sent or received cards.

SAMPLE SENT OR RECEIVED PM
Quote
Subject: OCT 2019 Ongoing ATC Swap--Sent

I mailed some cards today!

DUE OCT 16:
MeCraftsterMemberBloop --> Yowzaparadeper (dancing theme)

DUE OCT 17:
MeCraftsterMemberBloop --> Wowwieparadesper (some sorta theme)
MeCraftsterMemberBloop -->WooHooYeeHawparadeper (theme-ee theme)

STEP 6:
POSTING PIX OF ATCs RECEIVED
The most important step!
Posting pictures of received cards is required for this swap. Please post pictures within 3 days or notify your partner that you cannot so they can share their work.

We like to keep things friendly and encouraging. Thank you's and helpful comments about the artwork can be posted in the gallery!

GALLERY IS HERE: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=post;board=84.0

Our Pinterest Pinner is curiousfae! Contact her if you would like to be added to the board. Pinteresting is not a mandatory part of the swap but it's fun.  Smiley


FEEDBACK
Positive feedback will be given when all of the cards you claimed have been received and you have posted pictures of the cards you received. If you are stuck without a space for a swap and are biting your nails waiting, just let me know and I will release you asap.

ANY QUESTIONS?
