2017 Mega Christmas Card Swap - COME JOIN THE FUN

Jennie Dietrich
In addition to the SUDSOL Catalog swap... you could join this swap... See below:


Some of you will remember my “famous” Mega Christmas Card Swap.  The last one was in 2012 with more than 75 people participating in the swap.  For those that are new to SUDSOL, it is open to EVERYONE and it is “mega”….  I will do only 1 round this year.  I don’t think I have the “ability” to manage multiple rounds as I have in years past, so respond quickly.  BUT read all the instructions below before you respond

It is time to put together a GREAT collection of Christmas Cards to share with your customers and friends.  No one loves all the sets in the catalog, but there is always that customer out there whose taste in stamp sets doesn’t match yours, SO, let’s broaden our collections and have something for everyone.  This is a UNIQUE swap which I have hosted for many years.  You will get ONE card front of all the Christmas sets in the catalog.    GOAL: Something for everyone

From the sets in the Christmas section of the catalog or holiday catalog (I have attached a complete list below); send an email with at least 3 you would like to try.  I will fill the sets on a first come first served basis.  I will let you know if all three of the sets you have selected are already taken and allow you to select again, but this swap fills very fast (this is my 10th year) and the best plan is to pick a unique set to use since fewer people are likely to select it.

* The selected set must be used as the focal point.
* Each swap must be made of 100% SU materials that can be found in the current catalogs.  
* Each swap must have at least two layers, prefer three.  
* Each swap must be embellished with the use of at least one accessory.
* Each swap must come with the “recipe” for making it attached to the back
* Each swap must be inside a Ziploc bag (or two) in order to avoid damage in shipping.  They do not need to be individually placed in clear envelopes, but if you have lots of pieces which might snag on each other, this is advisable.
* IF you are participating in the SUDSOL Holiday Card Swap, this card MUST be different than anything you submit for that swap with Bobbie.  The same design can NOT be used.

SWAP HOSTESS: Jennie Dietrich (512-699-5606)
SWAP ADDRESS: 9803 Lantana, San Antonio, Texas  78217
SWAP EMAIL: pfun_stampin@sbcglobal.net

ALL + 1 full card.  
IF all sets are selected (as in years past) you are signing up to make 52 card fronts plus one full card.  The swap will return to you one of your own card fronts.

The full card will be given to the local nursing home after I have scanned it for SUDSOL.  The full card should NOT have the recipe attached, but please do put a copy inside so that I have it to enter the information into SUDSOL.  

POSTMARK DATE: September 11, 2017.  Items not postmarked by the 10th and/or not received by the swap out date will be returned to the sender. You must email the swap coordinator when you have mailed your swaps out. If you live in a rural area where mail moves slower, please allow plenty of time for it to be received.
SWAP OUT START: September 15, 2017.  A swap this large often takes more time to get swapped and packaged to be mailed back.  So don’t start looking for it prior to September 20th.

* I will be using the US Postal Service PRIORITY Flat Rate envelopes.  History has taught me that this is the only way to go.  
* If you are from Canada or other location, send your swap with the appropriate International envelope with the appropriate postage and customs forms already attached.  
* Your swap MUST arrive with a priority flat rate stamp and appropriate address label for a flat rate PRIORITY envelope in a ziploc bag with the full card.  
* With a swap this large, I can not stop to search for missing stamps but I will go to the post office and collect a large number of the envelopes so that you do not have to ship me a priority envelope.

NOTES:  All of the card fronts submitted will be scanned for the SUDSOL sample database, so make sure to label your cards with your name and card recipe (stating ALL items used).  Otherwise I will be unable to give proper credit, given the size of the swap.
As always, please use demonstration quality work, with layers and embellishments.
Don't forget to email me with the set you selected at pfun_stampin@sbcglobal.net
