2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / new shipping prices. on: May 09, 2007 02:23:16 PM
i go to the post office about 3 times a week and they know me pretty well there. one of the guys that work there gave me sheets of all the new rates and such, thought some of you might like to see it..

they are getting rid of the small flat rate global priority, which might kill some of us USA'ers ):

craftster/photobucket might have shrunk these pretty bad, if youd like me to email you the actual scanned ones, message me with your email address.

Back by popular demand! Share your crafty knowledge and create a DIY Kit for a craftster and in return learn something you've always wanted to learn but just didn't know where to start, or what to get!! All participants will be matched as best as possible accoriding to the kits they can make and the kits that they'd like to receive, so that we can all learn these kewl crafts from each other.

Craft Kits should include:
-project sheet with instructions and techniques (feel free to include samples/examples)
-tools with which to complete the project

ATTENTION: I made the sign up and send out periods really long for this one. One) so that people interested in being round 6, that was in round 5, have a chance to get their first ones out. Two) So that people will have a chance to get their kits done with great details without being rushed. Three) so that people with more than 5 swaps going will have time to clea them up!

1. Craftsters MUST communicate with each other - at least in the beginning to acknowledge their partners, and at the end to reassure them that their kit's on the way. Last swap, I had a little trouble with this, and I had many worried partners, and it really was a bit unfair, expecially after unnamed flakers got theirs, but never sent!! . ..I'm not going to monitor this, but if you think you're having trouble, or are unsure, PM ME!!!

2. Also I need you to PM me when you send your kit and  when you receive your kit.

3. If you're going to be late in sending, or are having any trouble at all, please let me know.. .. .be nice to your fellow Craftster, and keep them aware of your situation.

4. If you've never swapped beofre, please read the Swaps Info Guide.

This swap was created after the DIY Swaps Rounds I, II, III and IV:
Round 4 Gallery

6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / paper crafts supply swap! on: July 26, 2006 09:03:38 PM
I recently got into book making and my current obsession is PAPER! I love seeing what kinds of other papers people can get from other sides of the world. Alot of the paper I have seen, I cant get anywhere around where i live. I thought it would be cool for us to have a paper crafts supply swap. You can send stuff that you have in your stash of splurge and go shopping for your partner!

You can include, dye cuts, papers, embelishments, stickers, blank notecards, etc. anything that would have to do with "paper crafts"

There would of course be a limit, set by your and your partner so that one doesnt send a few sheets of paper and the other send a massive box of things..

would there be any takers!?
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / glue question on: July 15, 2006 05:11:23 PM
What sort of glue would you use to make a notepad. You know those ones where the papers free but at the top theres glue holding them together and you can tear a top sheet off.. i wish i could explain it!

I was thinking about modpodge but i dont want to ruin a bunch of paper trying it out, let me know! Smiley
