Hey, card makers! In an effort to encourage not just the sending of snail mail, but the camaraderie of card making buddies, I am launching a Crafty Card Making Swap!

All that is required of this swap is a handmade card with an inspirational message inside. This can be anything from a crafty quote to a short letter of encouragement.

Some fabulous quote ideas include. . . .

“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” – Maya Angelou

“The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul.” – Dieter F. Uchtdorf

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.” – Albert Einstein

Let the creativity flow! This swap is meant to encourage and inspire your partner in his/her craft.

Once again, all that is needed is:

  1. A handmade card in any size.

  2. An inspirational message inside.

Happy Swapping!

Did you just copy and paste this from another site?

starhiker 04/30/2014 #

So just what is required of this swap? A home made card?

FaveCrafts 04/30/2014 #

Hi there!

@piratecaptainmo we didn't copy this from another site, but we do have a blog post to promote the swap on the FaveCrafts blog!

@starhiker all that is required for this swap is a homemade card with an inspirational message on the inside.

I hope this helps!

I think you might be confused about how the Swap-bot computer assigns partners. You don't send and receive to/from the same person. Swapper A sends to Swapper B, Swapper B send to Swapper C, Swapper C sends to Swapper D, and D sends to A.

I've invited you to the Newbie Helpers group so you can get more info on SB, hosting, and other general information about the site.

Who is we? I thought individuals had accounts here, not groups.

I see several concerns with this swap. Not the least being that the host doesn't even have a properly filled out profile and very few ratings. Hmmm ...

FaveCrafts 05/ 1/2014 #

@TC thank you for your help!

racheljohnson 05/12/2014 #

Yay! FaveCrafts is an extensive craft website and a good friend and supporter of Swap-bot. With the good revisions, this will be a great swap! I just featured it on the Swap-bot Blog HERE.

The feeling I have gotten while I have been reading all of the comments is that some are concerned that they will not receive the same quality of card as they will be submitting. I don't know how this fear can be alleviated. All of us have varying degrees of experience/skill and access to supplies.

I remember a Christmas ornament swap where I submitted a quilled glass ornament that looked very much like cloisonné and I received a santa ornament made from a bunch of string tied at the ankles, waist, wrist, neck, and the top of its head.

I could only see having a moderator that matches the swaps according to skill and supplies.

OK I'm a virgin in this swapping thing. I just signed up this minute. Where do I get an address to send a card to?

CraftinGeek 05/16/2014 #

Just joined, can't wait! :)

FaveCrafts 05/16/2014 #

Hi @MissMargie As soon as the sign-up deadline has passed, I'll assign partners, and you'll receive the mailing address of your partner! Swap-bot does all of the actual partner assignments. You can expect to receive the mailing address no later than May 22nd. Thanks for signing up!

andreatally 05/17/2014 #

Is this card supposed to be unsigned so that the receiving partner can use it for someone else OR is it for the partner herself?

Kera 05/18/2014 #

I'm guessing this is Sender's Choice since the deadline to sign up is only ONE DAY before the send out date. I don't know about everyone else but I am busy and may not have time to make a card to the recipient's specifications in a day's notice.

FaveCrafts 05/19/2014 #

Hi @Kera The deadline to sign up is actually Tuesday, May 20, and the deadline to send your card is Saturday, May 31. I hope this helps clarify!

@andreatally this swap features an inspirational message on the inside of your card for your fellow card making swap partner. That being said, you can definitely tuck the message inside on a separate sheet of paper so your partner can reuse the card. Otherwise, you can write on the card directly. In fact, that would be an excellent idea to specify this on your profile if you have a preference either way. I hope that helps!

Kera 05/20/2014 #

Oh, raspberries! There's egg on my face. Thank you so much for the correction, @FaveCrafts

FaveCrafts 05/20/2014 #

Sure thing, @Kera Thanks so much for signing up!

Cfariss 05/21/2014 #

Do we have partners ... Yet??

FaveCrafts 05/21/2014 #

Hi @Cfariss I'm about to assign them! Thanks for asking! :)

frostie45 05/22/2014 #

This is only my second swap. Have a question about the card. Should it be with a plain envelope so the person receiving it can use it again?

FaveCrafts 05/22/2014 #

Hi @frostie45 ! This swap is Sender's Choice, so feel free to do a plain envelope if you'd like. One of the specifications is an inspirational message inside the card, and this can be written directly on the card or inserted on a separate piece of paper so the recipient can use the card again. I hope that makes sense! Please let me know if I can provide further clarification!

frostie45 05/24/2014 #

Swap is in the mail.

overboardcreations 05/28/2014 #

Swap is in the mail. Happy to be swapping
