ALPHA-2Q..(JANUARY - 2010).. ATC swap

Post by Guest on Thu 14 Jan 2010 - 11:55

January 2010
This is the continuation of our ALPHA-2 ATC swap
. . . . . . . . . . . . . Alphabetical ATC swap.
This months (December) title will be: ALPHA-2P. . . . . . folowed by ALPHA-2R and so on.
This ALPHA-2 started in September 2008 and I will run this swap for the full alphabet.
Each month will have a 'Sign Up By Date' and a 'Get It To Me Date'.= last Tuesday in every month
To join in you will need to make 4 portrait style identical ATCs (or as near as possible keeping the colours the same).
ATCs must measure 2.1/2" x 3.1/2" an International Size
Not just computer print-outs please, they must contain some crafting technique, so as to be fair to everyone.

. . . . 'Sign-up by date'.. for ALPHA-2Q = Tuesday January 19th
. . . . 'Get it to me Date.. for ALPHA-2Q = Tuersday January 25th
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
The reason for making 4 ATCs is, so that when your swaps returned you you will receive your own Number 1 of 4 (1/4) back each month and 3 of other peoples to collect. This gives us all chance to collect 4 complete alphabets whilst keeping a memento of our own Arty work to peruse for further ideas.
If you save the received swaps in a 9 pocket collectors page it is nice to able to view a 3 month swap on each page.

. . . . . . . . . . . . .

Sue D, I love your description on the back of your TRASH ATCs.
I also liek using cereal boxes as they are top quality card, it has to be because it is for food usage.
A good cheap supply for ATC cards.

It's just a brief description of how the bits started life Steph.
I never realised that food packaging was such good quality card I think I will be using it more often.

Good I am starting to get the results I wanted.

1- A conversation on here, as to what we have done with our TRASH.
2- Ideas for our future use of 'trash' (good quality free card for one thing)
3- Good descriptions on the back.
4- Last but not least, super different stuff coming in PINKYs from all of you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Tina (Srap Monkey) nice to have you join in again and a very good description of what you used for your Scrap.

For my trash I used ice cream cornet boxes. Collecting and saving them made
me realise how many we got through. It was a fun subject, much enjoyed.

She will have them sent to my address.

Nona, did you not get my PM about stamps? I said that I didn't know whether you still had a stock of my stamps, and to let me know!

No I didn't Tina. That explains that then. Have you got my email addy?
you will find it on the back of my ATCs. I always answer emails immediately.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Steph, I now know who 'Butterfly' is. That is why I didn't add Lauren's name on the ALPHA list untill today!

I have all 3 swaps sorted now and hope to get the photos up tomorrow.
Our TRASH swap has some very inventive use of our rubbish.
You have all put super descriptions on the back of what you used and I am very pleased with the results as I am sure you will all be.

I have 2 favourites in that swap. One of these is a cut up coke can from Cynthia.
I dont normally say whose my fav's are but, Cynthia, you beat me to making something with a lump of old metal as I have a collection of beer cans cut up ready to use. Super. Have you got a Cuttlebug?


Tina, I only found your PM the other night when Goaty told me how to find them !!
I dont get emails telling me I have private messages any longer now. I dont know why. (I always answer my emails).
Anyway I had a look in the folder I keep individuals peoples ATCs in and you do have another stamp left for next time.
Sorry about that. I forgot they were there.
Perhaps it would be better to put one stamp in the middle pocket each month please. It would be easier for me.

Or we could leave the little book in the middle pocket? I always buy them in books, and they're self-adhesive, so a bit difficult to separate. That way I'll know when they are about to run out too.

That's an excellent idea Tina. I always put my lose stamps in there
although one or two stamps rarely cover the right postage.

I just found last months ATCs under a pile of paperwork. I never put them away until
I have commented on what I have got.
What a fabulous lot.
I got Cynthia's lovely quill, Sue Davies's Quenchers (liked that) and Joy's
quotes - great minds Joy, as I did a quote as well.
