Thank you to JillHogan for the use of her theme for the swap image.

”Work Your Theme” ATC Swap

It’s time for more ATCs! This swap is aimed at those swappers with a theme. Whether it be ABCs, spelling “kitchen,” summer, a Halloween countdown, or even purple. Anything goes! You can add to a theme you have, finish a theme, or start a new one.

We will aim for groups of 4 – so you will be creating and sending 3 ATCs each. If you are a bit on the crazy side, sign up for multiple groups!

Please note that this will be a challenging swap. Some of the themes submitted by each member may include the last few remaining cards to complete the theme, such as an “X” in an ABC theme. In other words, cards that no one else wanted to claim during past swaps! I will assign one card from each partners theme to the participants in a group in cases where specific letters or numbers are required so that no overlap occurs. You can certainly trade within a group though if you have ideas for other cards.

 ATC FAQs -Everything you need to know about ATCs.

I would like each participant to post pictures after receiving and modify their post upon receiving each additional card. This way the theme stays together and everyone can see the final product!

Gallery  -Please post pictures of your cards here.

I love this swap idea.  I've been thinking about a sign for my classroom at school like the kitchen one...this would be a great way to start that...but I'm in over my head in swaps...oh decisions.  I'm sure I'll be signing up because I'm addicted, but not yet  Wink

This would be a great swap but I already have 5 swaps... In any case I will be stalking the gallery at least!

I know! This time of year is so busy for swaps but I was trying to get this in so that people with Halloween countdowns could add to their collection.

But you know...you only have three cards left to be received in the July ATC Swap and still two weeks to sign up for this one... Organizing both of these allows me to stalk ATC enthusiasts with ease...

Hmmmm. That was not meant to sound as creepy as it did.

I am just getting back into ATCs, gotta go through what I have and see if I need any collections filled.  But my swpas are filled, lets see if I get feedback before sign-ups are over.

We will aim for groups of 4 – so you will be creating and sending 3 ATCs each.

So is that 3 ATCs per partner for a total of 12 ATCs or 1 card per partner for a total of 3 cards?
