2  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Craftster Trading Cards #2 SEND OUT May 20 on: April 02, 2017 04:08:48 PM
 


Here is the Gallery to Round 2: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452179.0

(BTW - I did ask underthemountain and alteredmommy if it was okay to host the second round - they both said yes!)

CRAFTSTER TRADING CARD SWAP #2
This is the second (and hopefully not the last) Crafster Card Swap. This swap was inspired by the What do you look like thread on the Crafster Off-Topic Chit Chat and the awesome Crafster Canada Meetup in July 2016. The idea is to make a card all about you, kinda like a baseball card, but even more awesome. You can reproduce your card or create new ones for each of your partners. You can craft it from any material, but make sure that it is sturdy and that it will fit into a card sleeve if you are using different materials. Please use both the front and backsides of your card to tell us all about you!

BASIC CARD REQUIREMENTS
There are some basic requirements that should be on your card:
Size of the card: Should be the standard ATC 2.5" x3.5"
Front side: should include your image (can be done as a photo, drawing, painting, digitally altered, completely up to you!) and your Crafster name
Back side: can include your interests, your real name, address, etc. ..whatever you are comfortable with; you can even write a poem.  Completely open!

INFO

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER
Please send to Smmarrt with Craftsters Trading Card Swap #2 - signup" as the subject.

*Name of Swap:  Craftsters Trading Card Swap #2
*Craftster username:
*Email address:
*Your real name:
*Mailing address including the country (written as it would appear on the envelope):
*Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country? (In the first round, we swapped with all of the participants. This is a requirement for this swap.)
*Confirm that are at least 16 years old or, if not, that you have moderator approval(YES/NO):

***It was discussed in the New Swap Themes thread that everyone wants to swap with everyone else. This might seem overwhelming if this is your first time swapping trading cards. And yes the postage will add up if this is a group of 20 or more swappers. If requested, I can set up a smaller swap group of 5 or 10.

Do you want to swap with everyone who signs up?
Do you want to swap with 5 people?
Do you want to swap with 10 people?

If you are joining the for the second time, would you be willing to swap in one of the smaller groups to help out novice trading card makers? This means you would make an additional 4 or 9 cards to send out.

*What is the exact size of an ATC?
*Will you post a photo of the card(s) when you receive?
*Are you aware that if an ATC is lost in the mail, you are required to resend?
*Have you read the entire swap information for this swap?
*Will you send sent/receive notifications to the swap organizer?
*Will you send all of your cards out on the same date to help the swap organizer?

Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

FEEDBACK
Positive feedback will be given when all of the cards you sent 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?
If you have any questions please post them in the discussion thread or PM the co-organizers, Smmarrt and xxx
3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Craftster Card Swap Round 2 on: February 22, 2017 09:35:38 PM
I know there is interest in this. I need to go back and read the discussions in the gallery and original thread because I know that we had discussed using baby pictures, pet photos and something else.

The concept is that you make a trading card of yourself to trade with your Craftster friends. One side has an image or photo (or stamp or stencil) of your beautiful Craftster face. The back of the card has fun facts about you - anything you are happy to share. The cards are 2.5" by 3.5" - standard ATC or playing card size.

Okay, discuss.

(I'm thinking April and May for this - I'd like a bit more crafting time than the first time. 3 or 4 weeks maybe.)

Details of swap:

The 4x6 Art swap runs like this:  You make a piece of art, in your style, in your medium, how you want.  The only parameters are that you keep it flat(ish), and 4 inches by 6 inches in size. You will have no idea who your partner is, until "Address time", which will be at the end of the crafting period.  You also have to "check in" with me, the organizer approximately a week after the sign ups close - this lets me know that you are ready to send. If you do not check in, you will be removed from the swap. You will only know their address and proper name. You will have approximately 1 week after check in period to ship your personal art off!

Here is the time line broken down:
~ Sign ups: February 4 - February 15, 2017
~ Crafting period: Starts NOW Feb. 4 to Feb. 20
~ You are required to check in with the organizer via pm between the dates of Feb. 16 - Feb 20. Anyone who has not checked in by 7PM (PST) on Feb. 20th will be dropped from the swap and will not receive an address to send to.
~ Addresses will be distributed no later than February 21, 2017.
~ You must ship February 22 - 28, 2017.

Swap Rules:  
~You must post in thread at least once before being accepted into the swap.
~ Please continue to communicate within the thread at least once per week.  
~ No extras please!  Since the only communication will be through this thread, and there will be no discussion among partners, we don't want anyone feeling upset they didn't send an extra!

6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Bird, Bee and Butterfly on: January 31, 2017 01:00:19 PM
Had this stuck in my head all morning - one bird thing, one bee thing and one butterfly thing.

3 smalls each featuring one of these themes. Or one medium and two smalls. (I'm not really well versed in the small/medium/large kinds of swaps but we can discuss.)

The main thing is the critters and incorporating them into crafty stuffs.

Let me know what you think.




7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / 3-Tiered Collage Journal on: January 22, 2017 12:51:45 PM
This is a 3-tiered collage journal - inspired by Karla Alg/kagedfish. My book is smaller than the one she makes in the tutorial because I just used a piece of cardboard I had in my stash:

 


Here is the tutorial:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZi3RzZRoq8&t=1009s


This book has 9 signatures with 3 pages in each. I used a Recollections card stock set from Michaels (can't beat the $2 price tag!) Here is the first set of three signatures added:



Here is the completed book:




My pages are 2.5" tall and 4.25" wide - Karla's pages are taller.

And here are the first 3 collages - just using up leftovers and scraps:









Now the cardboard was cheap and old so when I pierced my holes with my awl, the cardboard split and cracked.
Boo hoo.




So a little duct tape fixes that problem!





Yay! Duct tape solves all the problems!

10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Junk Journal Supplies/End-of-Year Destash Swap? on: November 17, 2016 11:29:13 PM
I was thinking to keep the junk journal making going - we could swap our junk for another person's junk. This is a great time of year to toss out stuff - cards and envelopes, calendar pages, unused planner accessories, scrapbooking ephemera and leftovers, swap supplies received but not needed, excess Gelli prints, dollar items that don't thrill you anymore (but it was a dollar so you had to buy it, right?), Instax photos or other scenic shots, postcards, flyers or brochures that you were saving for a special occasion, maps or atlases, and the list goes on and on.

We would swap small, medium or large flat rate boxes - I will have to think of how we can include our international friends.

Sign up the first week of December and send out after the new year when we all go back to work?
