Thank you to all the people who joined the past swaps. The next paragraph is the same to help the new participants to understand the idea behind the swap. If you have joined before you can skip the paragraph, it is the same.

NEW RULE: You must have a well filled out profile, "BEFORE" partners are assigned. "WELL filled out means more than one paragraph." No profile you will be banned.

Have you ever spent time and effort to make your ATC only to receive an ATC from your partner that put yours to shame? Have you ever felt like not making ATCs anymore because you don't think you can make yours to the caliber of others? Ever send an ATC and when you receive your partners you wish your name would fall off the one you sent? Have never made an ATC before? This swap is for you. I want to make this swap where you do not have to be under stress to make a picture perfect one. Now of course that does not mean you don't put time and effort into it.

If your ATC can be sold at an art auction you are still welcome to join but remember your partner may be a newbie. Don't complain about their work unless it is very obvious they put no time into it.

Very simple rules, make the ATC standard size. 2.5 x 3.5, medium and theme is up to the maker. Stickers are very much permitted if you can incorporate it into the theme but no sticker slapping. In other words you must do more than put stickers on a backing. """ALSO: printing off a picture from the internet and pasting it on cardboard is not an ATC.""""

I will be checking profiles and no unexplained 1s or 3s. ""NO recent 1s"" If for whatever reason you cannot send your ATC email your partner. Do not rate 1s or 3s

Do not rate 1s or 3s

What do you mean by this? Do not rate 1s or 3s

We dont rate senders a 1 or 3?

She means, don't rate a 1 or a 3 just because you don't like it. If by swap-bot rules the swap requires a 1 or 3, late send without communication or flaking, then you can rate the appropriate number.

i am working on a template for microsoft word and publisher for those who love doing collages on the computer without wanting to print and cut up many photos or books, anyone who's interested feel free to contact me, just let me know which of the two programs and what version you have (ie: word 2013, 2007, 2003 or below)

additional note, to follow the rule of taking an online photos and just printing it off, please do not use my template to do that, put work into it, head out into the world take photos with your cell phone or camera, use a photo of the current page of the book your reading as background and add inspirational photos as 'highlights' to what words pop out, my templates are meant to allow those who think they are artistically challenged a chance to use their eyes as their 'guides' in a sense and make something simple and lovely. make sure to get it printed on cardstock though, it's the perfect thickness for ATC, i've often used my own drawings when participating in themed atc's in the past

I am a newbie and would like to join. I have never done an ATC, but I would love to try my hand at it.
