Last Chance - Join the SLB Holiday Catalog Card Front Swap

Don't have plans for Labor Day Weekend?  Want to get a few samples using new stamp sets?
Join this swap! Make as few as 10 + 1. They just have to arrive before Sept 12th.

I counted 49 stamp sets (not counting the hostess set). 27 are assigned to one or more, but the following 22 are not assigned to anyone:

Season Like Christmas, Christmas Happiness, Cheery Chirps        
Carols of Christmas,       Brightly Lit Christmas,  Season to Sparkle
Tags and Trimmings,       Darling Christmas, The Little Things
Christmas in the Making, Iconic Christmas, Festive Phrases
Mistletoe Friends,       Cheers to the Year, Wonderful Life
Add A Little Gift,       Hug In A Mug,             Creep It Real
Wishes All Aglow,       Hearts Come Home, Graveyard Gate
Seasonal Lantern,        

I have decided to close the following 3 sets:
Pick a Pumpkin, Seasonal Chums, and Painted Harvest
(if you want to participate but only own a closed stamp set, let's discuss)
We currently have 23 participants creating 42 samples.

Holiday Catalog New Stamp Set Swap -

  time and create something that you would be proud to share.
• Card fronts must be labeled with your name and recipe.

Closed stamps sets:  Pick a Pumpkin, Seasonal Chums, and Painted Harvest
We have 22 participants so far, creating 40 samples, lots of room for more!

Email me ( your top 3 choices of stamp sets and how many you want to make.
THE COUNT: (10 + 1), (20 + 1) OR 2 different sets of (10+1) (different designs) OR multiples of previously mentioned quantities.  No more than (20 + 1) of any single design.  The +1's are mandatory and are sent to the SLB for SUDSOL RAK's.  I do not keep them.   This is a standard (5½ x 4¼) CARD FRONT swap, not full cards unless the design of your card requires a full card.

OTHER REQUIREMENTS: Enclose your cards in a large ziploc baggie, labeled with your name/address and the quantity +1 of cards that you have submitted.  You need to use a large ziplock baggie even if you put all your swaps in individual cello envelopes or sets in smaller ziplock bags.  Your return swaps may not all have cello envelopes so the ziplock bag will protect them. Each swap card needs to have the entire recipe with it along with the swappers name/contact info.
Consider putting your individual swaps in cello envelopes – especially if you have embellishments that may stick to neighboring swaps or get beat up during shipping. I reuse cellos I get in swaps.

If you are unsure you can let me know after you decide but understand that I will limit the number of swappers using a particular set, so choose your set(s) as soon as possible. I will confirm via email each person that has signed up with their assigned set(s) and you will get timely updates/status reports etc.  If you're unsure about your swap card, send a picture to the sudsol group or the swap coordinator for input, as we're all very willing to help improve each other’s cards.
NOTES:  All cards submitted will be scanned for the SUDSOL website, so be sure to include your name and the ENTIRE card recipe.  

Send them to me however you want to ensure they make it to me by the swap out date.  For your returned swaps, include a pre-addressed shipping label and priority stamp preferred.  (If you are sending me a priority stamp you don't need to send me the mailer - I get those free from the postal service).  Otherwise a self-addressed, stamped mailer along with 2 separate, extra stamps (to be used if the return swaps are heavier than your swaps were) must be sent with your swap so that I can return the swap to you.  

Items not postmarked by this DEADLINE will be returned to the sender unopened if they are not received by the swap-out date. Non-CONUS swappers, please mail yours as soon as possible, at least 5 days before the postmark date.  You must email the swap host at when you have mailed your swaps out.   Letting me know that you have mailed your swaps by September 5th makes you eligible for the SUDSOL guarantee: if your swaps are damaged or lost in the mail, SUDSOL will send you make up swaps from the +1's. (Please do not ask for my signature to receive your swap package.)

SWAP OUT DATE: Sept 12th. If they all arrive sooner, I'll swap them out sooner.
