Details of swap:

This will be a swap for cards and tags for the upcoming holiday season(s), or just for general greeting cards.  

I am opening this a bit earlier so that it can also include Halloween, Thanksgiving, or any other fall/winter celebrations anyone may want cards for (FYI - Hello Kitty's birthday is November 1st, 1970... just as an example...)

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 size limit (just be reasonable - does anyone really want a 3 foot square tag?).

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.

I'm trying out paper cutting with my Cricut and Christmas ideas myself.

I have a lot of new folders, stamps, dies that I got on clearance this summer I am dying to try (pun not intended!).  Many of them are seasonal.  I have to say I went a bit hog wild.
