1 New Year / Spring clean swap on Sat Jan 23, 2010 9:02 am

I think it's high time for a new ATC swap.

New Year is a time when we all generally have a bit of a clear out and we start to think of things like spring cleans, so I thought we should have a swap where we use up our old stash (Imaging how good we would feel!). So you can't use anything new that you have bought - I know we are all supposed to be on stash diets - but get real!!

Use papers that don't match anything else, or scraps that you've kept 'just in case', or have a good rummage and you'll find things that you had COMPLETELY forgotten you'd even bought! I've already started and found some fab stuff.

For those that don't know an ATC must be 2.5" by 3.5" and have your details and the swap and forum details on the back. Other than the theme of the swap there are no other rules - you have a completely free hand.

Please post 2 ATCs with and SAE, to me by Saturday 20th February and I will endeavour to get them out on the following Monday.

Who's up for the challenge?

Sounds good. Count me in. I don't normally commit until I've actually made them so this is very brave for me!!

Thank you Julia and Fe I appreciate your prompt replies.

Julia - of course we'll be gentle with you - we'd love you to have a go. It really is just the same as scrapbooking or card making but on a smaller scale (which of course is perfect for left-over scraps). Check out Wulfcwens post about 'What is an ATC'.

Just so I get this right...we have to make two ATCs but do they have to be the same or can they be different?

Julia - they can be either. Some people do them exactly the same, some do them similar and some do completely different. It is quite likely that if you are using up scraps and oddments that they will be different.

Hope that helps

Count me in! I have two big boxes full of paper scraps left over from my scrapbooking that I use for cardmaking and ATCs, so this shouldn't be too hard. Famous last words!!!

Can you add me to the list please Anne? I've done mine, ready to post.
I now realise why the stickers which I have used were left unused in my stash - they don't stick!! Glue had to be applied - not really the idea is it?!

Me too Deanne - lots of stash that I haven't used in ages!

Thank you Pippa and Julia - looking forward to receiving them. Julia - your work is so beautiful I just know your ATCs will be too, thank you for joining in.

Fe I received yours this morning - they are gorgeous. That was just what I had in mind, for peeps to use old scraps of paper that and stamps /embellishments that haven't been used in ages. Love the 'yellow' card you sent them in too.
