So the holiday gift giving season is coming up, and I am inviting fellow Craftsters in joining in on a seasonal card and tag swap.  This year it will be slightly different from our previous Tag swaps, because it will be a combination of cards and tags.  

Anyways, let's get some of the business end done...

Swap name: 2015 Holiday Tags and Cards Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Onyxnox
Sign-up date range: October 09, 2015 (by midnight EST)
Date to send item by: November 04, 2015

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 20

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? YES/NO - no
If so, which country? not applicable

Additional Age requirement? no

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: not applicable
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:

This will be a swap for cards and tags for the upcoming holiday season.  

Participants will be in groups of 4, where each Craftster will send a set of 4 cards (and envelopes) and 4 tags (and attachment mode) to each of the other three members of the group by the send by date, and each Craftster will receive 4 cards/tags from each of the group members.  

Therefore everyone, in the end, should have received a dozen cards and tags in time for holiday gift giving.  


Minimum expected size for tags - 2"x3", and to include ties/ribbons/sticky
Minimum expected size for cards - 3"x5", and to include envelopes

There is no maximum.

On saying that, the theme of the cards do not have to be limited to the holidays, if that is what your partner wants.  Also, Crafsters are encouraged to be as creative as you want; just because it is cards and tags, does not mean you have to limit yourself to paper.  If you want to make your items from something other than paper, feel free to.  I love seeing how varied the results are and how wonderfully creative everyone is in these swaps!


But because this will likely be mostly a paper swap:  as per Craftster swapping rules, papercraft swaps are exempt from the DC confirmation requirements.  Senders are required to resend their packages if they are not received for any reason.

Need to finish some sewing projects so I can put away those supplies and dig out my papercrafting goodies. Bought some new glues, ribbons, dies, cardstock, and stamp pads recently, so think I'm good to go.

If any of my swap partners would like to receive Christmas postcards, I have a cool stamp that is the back of a postcard.

4 cards and 4 tags, so a total of 8 pieces of hand craftedness.

Welcome to the swap - so far we have enough for one (awesome) group.

Hey flygirl88 - is that a Stampin' Up stamp, the postcard one?  If it is the one I am thinking about, I have been wiffle-waffling about that one.  There is a rep I usually deal with in person at a booth at the festival I am going to in two weeks, and order from her then because often if I order then, I get some discontinued product for free at the booth and I was wondering if I should get that, and some of the Christmas dies.

I am also trying to stick to patterns that I could use in mixed media more too - multitaskers rather than unitaskers.
