JANUARY 2013 SWAP - ATC with a twist

Post by lyndaejane on Tue 8 Jan 2013 - 18:24

Lorraine has given me the go-ahead to do a swap this month: thought it should be something simple, so we can get ourselves back in the swing of things. So it's just one ATC (easy to make); stash included (to give a bit of a challenge); direct to the recipient (avoids remembering return postage, return address etc).

You make one ATC, using a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 8 components (4 identical brads, for example, would be just one component, as would gems, eyelets, pearls and other small items). Put the ATC in an envelope and seal it. Post the envelope, together with an identical set of components, to your recipient (to be advised by me after sign-up). When you receive your package, make an ATC with all the components; then open the envelope and post a picture of both ATCs. It'll be interesting to see how different they are.

Please note: if you use a plain piece of card as the base of your ATC, this doesn't count as one of the components.

Sign up by January 18th, ATCs/stash to be posted by January 28th.

You're only a day late, Ruth and Dawn, and I was planning to remind everyone just before the sign-up date and forgot (blame this cold that I still haven't shaken off), so will add you to the list.

Will PM you all with the names of your recipients.

In case anyone is having trouble getting to the Post Office, or if people are not having a postal delivery (like we didn't on Monday), don't worry too much if the ATCs aren't there dead on time, especially if this bad weather continues.

Posted mine today, it went through the postal slot no problem as I had managed to stick everything on a card, so they would not bulk up.

Posted. May have gone slightly OTT with the envelope, but there are brads in it and didn't want to risk anything else!

Having looked - not sure I can open a Gallery thread for the swap: probably has to be done by a moderator? Anyway, as soon as there's a gallery up you can post your piccies, Kim: dying to see them all!
