Everything Scrapbook and Stamps is pleased to announce our themes for the 2018 ATC swap.

Don’t worry if you have never participated in an ATC Swap before, it is easy and there are only a few rules.

Your card must measure 2.5 by 3.5 inches and must have the following information on the back of the card:

  1. Your Name,
  2. Name of the Swap:  (eg:  Everything Scrapbook & Stamps “Tim Holtz Paint”)
  3. the number of the card in the series (i.e. card 1 of 6, card 2 of 6, etc)
  4. Contact information, either email or phone
  5. and the date

You will need to make 6 cards.

If you attend our swap  in person we will be doing a make n take card using the following months technique.  If you live out of town or are unable to attend you can mail your swap in to us.  Please make sure to include a postage paid envelope.  We will do the swap  and mail your swapped cards back to you.

This year we have decided to do a technique series based on Industry Artists and Techniques/Products

The interpretation is yours (does this artist remind you of a particular color, product or technique)

For instance Tim Holtz is known for his worn vintage look, the color brown and some seriously cool techniques.  This artist is easy to think of something to do.  and you probably already have his products in your stash.  Pick one of his techniques and use his stamps or ephemera on top.  Julie Nutting is know for her paper dolls.  Karen Burniston is known for her Pop Ups.  (so this card should use a Pop Up in some way)

Here is the list of Industry Artists

January – Tim Holtz & Distress Oxides

February – Joanne Sharpe

March – Kelly Kilmer

April – Cat Kerr

May- Seth Apter

June- Julie Nutting

July – Tim Holtz and a new product to be announced

August – Nathalie Kalbach

September – Dina Wakley

October – Authentique Paper

November – Heartfelt Creations

December – Dyan Reaveley

If in one particular month the artist does not fit your vibe or style then pick one of these two artists instead

Wild Cards:  Catherine Moore or Michael DeMeng

Remember to send us 6 cards but most importantly remember to have fun !

Number of Altered Trading Cards to make: 6 for each swap.

The great thing about our ATC swap is you do not have to live near us to participate.  You can mail your ATC’s to us ahead of time and we can do the swap for you.  Please remember to send a stamped self addressed envelope with your swap.. . . and your name, contact information, date and the theme should be on the back of the ATC.

If you come in to the store to do your trade, we will have a technique based demo as well.

We have a lot of fun with our ATC swap and hope you can join us.
