Would you like to trade your ATCs? For this swap you will have 1 partner & you will trade 2 ATCs. There is no theme, no special type, just send 2 ATCs to your partner. This swap is open to all who love to make ATCs & for newbies~we all have to start somewhere & I believe art can be created by all. This is sender's choice. Please rate a 5 if you receive the 2 ATCs. Remember, this is sender's choice, so if you do not like or care for the 2 ATCs that you receive you must still rate a 5. Please, no flakers. If you do not receive from your partner, please let me know & I will angel for you. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. Thank you. Have fun!

Hi, Linda! Do these need to be made by us or are we allowed to swap ATCs made by others?

LindaRichards 11/23/2012 #

Hello again, @kirkproductions I would allow either! It's fun just swapping unique art.

kiddomerriweather 11/24/2012 #

Hey, Linda. Just letting you know that an ATC is a "package or craft" and not flat mail. Watching for now!

Barsook 11/24/2012 #

No, if we are not making any, it should be Type 2 not Type 3. we are just sending two ATC's.

LindaRichards 11/24/2012 #

I picked Type 2 because it can be sent via "Flat Mail" in an envelope or tucked into a card. The ATCs should already have been made prior to this swap. It should be ATCs that you have in your stash already. I'm sorry for any confusion on anyone's part. Thank you all for the information.

cafras 11/25/2012 #

Type 2 and Type 3 both correct for ATC's. Most prefer Type 3 as they come under art and craft. My informant was Rachel ( admin) when I was queried by a swapper on an ATC swap I hosted. I now classify ATC swaps as Type 3 - to keep every one happy.

Barsook 11/29/2012 #

Can it someone else ATC that was made for us or someone else but we gained it from a swapping ATC swap?

LindaRichards 11/29/2012 #

@Barsook any ATC is great. I would love to trade any ATC you may have.

Tinkerbell1982 12/ 7/2012 #

This is my first ATC swap. I will try to make them. I hope my partner will like them..

LindaRichards 12/ 7/2012 #

Yay! This swap made it to number 7 on the Top Swaps so far!!!!

LindaRichards 12/ 9/2012 #

I changed this swap to a "Type 3" swap because I noticed that some swappers are going to make the ATCs instead of using the ATCs that were already made or that they may have in their stash. If you still have ATCs in your stash, you can use those to swap as well. Plus, I failed to specifically state that in the swap instructions. My apologies. Thank you for joining and for your patience with me on this swap.

LindaRichards 12/10/2012 #

Yay! Number 4 on the Top Swaps!

Barsook 12/11/2012 #

2 now.

LindaRichards 12/11/2012 #

@Barsook Yay!!!! #2 is awesome!!!!!

AZmom875 12/13/2012 #

I have to admit I dont pay attention to the type of swap 1, 2 or 3 anymore when I join a swap. But I am not a newbie anymore needing a certain number to join groups or some swaps. Thanks for hosting. I joined.

LindaRichards 12/13/2012 #

@AZmom875 thank you so much for joining! :)

LindaRichards 12/16/2012 #

OMG! I'M NUMBER 1! YES! (lol)

LindaRichards 12/17/2012 #

Please, to everyone, if your profile is not filled out fairly well, could you please do so before I assign partners. I do not want to drop anyone from this swap just because you do not have a completed profile that will take a few moments to complete. After all, how is your swap partner supposed to know your likes & dislikes? Thank you for your attention to this matter.

tlrothwell 12/19/2012 #

Am I supposed to write any information on the back of the cards? Tammy

LindaRichards 12/19/2012 #

@tlrothwell I like to write my name, the date & perhaps my email address, in case someone likes my ATC & wants to trade again.

Tinkerbell1982 12/22/2012 #

Join the group atc lovers

LindaRichards 12/23/2012 #

@Tinkerbell1982 Thank you, I joined!

foxyfoxy 12/24/2012 #

maxette 12/24/2012 #

I've done my 2 ATC yesterday to be right in tiem to send them...when and how will we get notice of the address of our partner?! then I love swaps but all swaps are not for newbies....grrh?!Does anyone know where i can find others??? thanks a lot to all and i'm very happy to participate... P.S : for the one who will get my 2 ATC...be patient, because they have to "swim"/fly over the ocean!

LindaRichards 12/24/2012 #

@bunnyhoney thank you for signing up, I'm excited to have join!

LindaRichards 12/24/2012 #

@maxette Type 2 & Type 3 are the categories for the types of swaps that Swappers create. I'm so glad to hear that you have your ATCs! When the sign up date comes to an end, I will generate the address/mail to recipients. And for the Newbie swaps, just look under the Swaps & Groups location tabs.

@LindaRichards ..thanks a lot and I will do my best to complete my profile...

Lizard 12/27/2012 #

G'Day, I am new to Artist Trading Cards. I need to know the dimensions of them please. Also, can I make one that is layered - as in paper tole? Or Iris Folding? Or with quilling on it? ANY information or links to help me understand ATCs would be very much appreciated.

I'll just watch for a day or so until I get some answers, so that I can give my partner that which I would be happy to receive. Thank you.

LindaRichards 12/27/2012 #

@Lizard http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Artist-Trading-Cards http://painting.about.com/od/paintingforbeginnersfaq/f/ArtTradingCard.htm

LindaRichards 12/27/2012 #

@Lizard I hope the links help you. The standard size is 2.5 X 3.5 inches and creating layers sounds great to me. I say create away on your ATC!

vick302000 12/28/2012 #

Are you going to ban some of the questionable swappers? There are some in this swap that already have over due swaps on their dashboard and some with very low ratings.

LindaRichards 12/28/2012 #

@vick302000 Yes, I have noticed that. I have also noticed some without completed profiles. I will send out another notice to those particular swappers before I assign partners. Thank you.

ThESwEeTiE 12/30/2012 #

I am very interested in this

Lizard 12/30/2012 #

I'm still watching this swap. I am learning how to make ATC

ThESwEeTiE 12/30/2012 #

I am good real friends with someone on your list here, my question is, can you please make sure that we arent partnered up for a swap... only because we live close to one another, overseas would be so much better. Many thanks (and yes, I am working on my profile :D

AZmom875 12/30/2012 #

ThESwEeTiE 12/30/2012 #

The hostess just pushes a button and swap bot assigns the partners. It is a program, the hostess has not control over who you get or even who she gets.

LindaRichards 12/30/2012 #

Thank you @AZmom875 I am sorry @ThESwEeTiE but I do not have control over who gets who as a partner.

LindaRichards 12/30/2012 #

As one final reminder, Please, to everyone, if your profile is not filled out fairly well, could you please do so before I assign partners.

Lizard 12/31/2012 #

hahaha I will laugh if I get you @ThESwEeTiE lol lol lol :)

Lizard 01/ 1/2013 #

@LindaRichards Thank you for those links. Yes, they were helpful. Also, @ThESwEeTiE came over and helped me get started on how to make them.

ThESwEeTiE 01/ 1/2013 #

Thank you for letting me know how it all happens @Azmom875 and @LindaRichards , it will be fine, I am really impressed with the works that @Lizard has been producing.. so will be more than happy to swap with her :)

Artistic 01/ 4/2013 #

ATCs are en route to my partner. Enjoy!

tlrothwell 01/17/2013 #

OMGosh, I forgot who I was swapping with! Please forgive my ignorance, I have not been around much due to health issues. If you could please remind me I would appreciate it. Thank you ever so much. Tammy

kirkproductions 01/26/2013 #

@tlrothwell Did you sign up for the swap? I don't see you on the list of participants, so you wouldn't have a partner.

LindaRichards 02/ 3/2013 #

ATTENTION TO ALL: If you have been flaked on, please let me know. I have an Angel swapper that will send you 2 ATCs.

Paulac440 03/15/2013 #
