Details of swap:

You'll make 3 different ATCs -- V, W and X -- for this round.  Each one will be sent to a different swapper. ATCs must measure 3 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches. There will be a new swap round every few months as we progress through the alphabet so you can join in at any time. craftydame and I will be alternating organizing the rounds.

Since ATCs are small DC# is not required but if your cards are not received after 2-3 weeks you will need to resend. For this swap, you must be willing to ship to an address outside your own country. Since ATCs are small, this shouldn't be a large financial strain on anyone, and it will allow more variety in partners than in previous rounds. You also must agree to post pictures in the gallery, because that's the fun part!


PLEASE NOTE:
* communication is really important! you must PM me and your partners when you send and receive!
* posting in the thread does NOT count as communicating!
* don't forget that you've agreed to post pics within a reasonable amount of time!
* failure to follow the guidelines of the swap WILL be noted in feedback!
* between swaps and modding, i get A LOT of PMs! please write "STU Swap" or something like it in the subject line!


See previous galleries for examples of ATCs:

Signed up! For once I don't have all my cards done in advance, so now I'm off to brainstorm. Damn that X!  :D

I agree!  These letters are tough, and I don't have any pre-made ones for this round!  I'm off to sign up.

I sent in my info ... I don't have my cards finished, but for once I have all 3 started. It was easier than expected to pick out themes. Now if they all just work out the way I want them to  :)

I did get the dictionary out to look up words and I think I picks three great ones! I have some fun ideas and I have the cards sketched out and ready to make!

Having just stalked the current ATC letter swap, I just told myself, 'if there is an ATC swap, I am so signing up for it'...so I guess I am signing up for this. :D

I've made exactly 1 ATC before...what an interesting batch of letters to start with!

When you give out partners, is each partner assigned a letter or do we just randomly send one letter to each of the three partners?

Sorry, does that question make sense?

Makes perfect sense!  Each partner is assigned a letter.  That way you don't get duplicates of any letters.

OK, here's another question ;)

The thread says "ATC V,W,X Swap", but the questionnaire says "ATC V,X,Y Swap."

As V,W,X is the order that the alphabet goes in, I'm assuming those are the correct letters, but I'm just wanting to make sure :D

I had to sign up I want to finish my Alphabet, but I have to keep quiet cause I told my husband that the journal swap was the last swap for a while. lol  ;D No ideas yet Im sure I will be doing a lot of brain storming today.

I'm just the opposite! I thought of an X right away...but V and W are a blank in my mind. Off to the dictionary I go... :D

I have a "V" in mind, a few ideas for "W", but none that are just right yet, but "X"... all I can come up with is X-ray, and I don't really want to do that :( I'll come up with something though! :D

I have my x finished an my W almost finished but I haven't started on V, I have a few ideas that I can't decide on for that one.

quick question, does the word have to be on the front of the ATC, or can we just decorate based on that theme with no words? I have the title of the ATC as the word and the deffinition on the back


Title: Re: Alphabet ATC V,W,X Swap ( Sign Ups March 4 - March 10, Send Outs March 31 )
Post by: TwiztidBlood on March 09, 2009 07:28:03 PM
As long as the word is on the back it is completely fine. I think almost everyone that does the alphabet does the artist work etc on the front and puts the title on the back

Okay, I haven't started at all... I figured I'd wait to see who my partners were and wait until I had a nice little bit of time to dedicate to doing the wee things BUT I do have the most prefect X word waiting to be ATC'd

Ill add you to the front page in the morning.

The movie ended up being 3 hours long and now Im to tired to send out partners.

I have closed the swap, partners will be out as soon as I wake up.

GOD!  I have to wait for my partners?  Geesh Twiztid!  ;D

I'm in no hurry.  I have my topics in mind and have picked an image for one, but have to finish brainstorming for the other two.  I'm also in the middle of trying to finish a monster for my nephew.   :-\

I'll start soon though!  Yay!

Alrighty ladies!

I just hobbled my butt out of bed and sat down ( as per usual haha ), so Im now going to do partners! You should have a PM within the next two hours.

Partners are now posted on the front page. I am going to have breakfast and then I will be sending you a PM with partner information

Everyone should now have a PM with partners information.

Please check and make sure everything matches up with the front page and that there is no problems

:)

These little speed demons who are already finished are really putting the pressure on me!  Usually, I'm finished before partners are assigned, too, but this time, I'm struggling!  I have W completely finished, X almost done (not thrilled with it yet), and only a vague idea for V (where's my stinking dictionary?). 

Oh yeah:  hey to my partners, Pogo, oddacity and karin_  can't wait to see what you guys make!

I have ideas for V and W but haven't started yet. I'm recovering from an intestinal bug or maybe food poisoning, not sure what but I was feeling pretty bad. I'll be getting started soon though.

I ordered some embellishments today for one card, they should be here in a couple days. I'm on spring break right now, I go back to school on Monday, my printer is broken so I have to use the ones there. So hopefully I will be done by the end of next week!

These little speed demons who are already finished are really putting the pressure on me!  Usually, I'm finished before partners are assigned, too, but this time, I'm struggling!  I have W completely finished, X almost done (not thrilled with it yet), and only a vague idea for V (where's my stinking dictionary?). 

Oh yeah:  hey to my partners, Pogo, oddacity and karin_  can't wait to see what you guys make!
Hello partner! :)

I have my W card done.  I was looking for something specific for my V card and came across the inspiration for W and had to make it.  Now to actually get the V and X cards done instead of just planned  ;D

Well, I haven't started.

But at least I know what I'm going to do now.

And knowing is half the battle.

That would be really neat!

I am just getting started (I know, I picked a funny part of the alphabet to start on...) so I won't be able to do that for a while. I hope there's a round three or else I will have a little collection of "end of the alphabet" ATCs - which could be interesting too ;)

This is my first alphabet ATC too, so yeah I'm hope there is another round, too!

I jumped in at the end of the alphabet, too! :D

I finished my V atc last night. So, I just have to tackle X...my original idea isn't working out - I may have to change my X word.

I've finally come up with a good word for X and now can't figure how to do it!!  Typical lol

My cards are all done! I just need to address them and I'm ready to send!

I had a hard time with this round! I wanted to continue to make french ATCs, but there isn't that many w or x french words. So I switched to english.  :) Once I did that, it was a lot easier.  :D

I am so thrilled with my "V" idea but wonder if anyone else would find it as amusing...or if any one else is doing the same! :P

I was so happy. I finished my cards early. Addressed them before my trip. Popped them in a box while I was on the road. Now I've realized I have very likely mixed up who was supposed to get what!

I feel like a nincompoop :-[

oh dear Knickertwist (lol - your name is accurate isn't it?) I'm sure no one will mind forwarding to the right people.
I have mine in my bag ready to go to the Post office - as long as I can find one open!
Will the next swap be just 2 letters?

I finished mine a few days ago and sent them out this afternoon. I was afraid I was late (I haven't had much internet access the last few days and couldn't remember send out)  I tried something different for one of them and can't wait for my partner to receive!

I came up with a brilliant idea for the "X" card and ordered a necessary piece last night. I got an email today saying she was going to ship my order within the next week. ... So I guess I'll have to come up with another way to create this brilliant idea :D

So I had some surprise company today, which was nice, but I couldn't get to the post office. I'm not sure if my envelopes need extra postage so I don't want to stick a stamp on them and put them in the mail box. But I'll mail tomorrow for sure!

I have been instructed by the FH that I need to make a dent in the huge pile of (my) dirty laundry in our bedroom tomorrow, but luckily for me, the water in our building will be shut off from 1-3 pm, so I will finish my ATCs and hopefully run out to the P.O. then! :D

Mine are all finally in the mail. I was up late enough last night to make me a bit loopy so I forgot to take pictures until they were alll sealed up. Grrr.

Hope they all make it to my group safely!

I received a very cool card from SewHelpMe a couple of days ago! Pictures will be up soon!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that oddacity receives her X card soon... It's been about two weeks now, even slower than usual!  :-\
