Orlando OnStage Sudsol Card Front Swap - update September 17, 2018

Blythe Klipple

Are you going to Orlando’s 30th Anniversary On Stage Event?
Do you want to get some great swap cards?
Have you joined the Sudsol Swap?
Have you started your swap cards???

Here are the details for this year’s Sudsol Card front swap……….

**Save this email if you plan to join in.**

*********I’m happy to say that we already have 60 signed up for the swap.  Two groups.  32 total for each group.

When:  Friday, November 9th, 3:45 - First thing during our 4 hour afternoon break.

Where:  Gathering Place or equivalent, back right corner.  When I see the convention center layout I can be more specific.  Please watch for updates once we are in Orlando and know the turf.

  • Card fronts only (save your card stock for classes and workshops).  5-1/2” x 4-1/4” or 4-1/4” x 5-1/2” 
  • Current (2018-2019) Stampin' Up! product.  That means the Annual Catalog and the Holiday Catalog.  Please no Hallowe’en since 2018’s spooky event will be over by the time we swap.
  • Be sure to use layering and embellishments and do your best work.  Clean, sharp, crisp edges.  We want to show off big time!
  • Make your card something you will be proud of as well as something you would love to receive in a swap.
  • PLEASE put your NAME, LOCATION, and EMAIL on the back of your swap card.  Adding your INGREDIENTS/supplies would be wonderful.  Plan ahead so you won't run out of time for creating your cards and putting your information on the backs.  
  • I will post all swap cards in the Sudsol gallery after On Stage but I won’t post details if they aren’t provided, not even colors.  I’m not being a grump—just being practical of my time and energy.
  • Some members place their cards in clear envelopes—not a requirement but it can protect your card.  That choice is totally yours.  
  • Remember--we are trying to gather ideas for workshops and classes so you don't have to go way over the moon to make your fanciest card ever!  :)
  • Each swap will be for 31 swap cards - plus #32 which is a RAK.  RAKs are cards sent to Sudsol members randomly.

If you haven't participated in the past, or if this is your first convention, please please please don't be shy about signing up.  We are friendly.  We're fun.  And your contribution is what it's all about!!!!!  Historically the Sudsol swap is THE BEST SWAP AT CONVENTION, but it's nothing without you.  

How many cards you ask?  Depends upon how many sign up.  There will definitely be no more than 32 cards per group!  I have no idea how many will be attending or how many will be signing up at this point.  But……I will limit GROUPS to no more than 32 participants per group.  (Why 32?  It’s divisible by 4 - like 4 card fronts per 8-1/2 x 11 sheet of card stock.)  

You may sign up for more than one group.  Just tell me you’d be interested in more than one group when you sign up.

At this point (Sept 19th)we have two full group.  I will open a group 3 if there are interested participants.  When signups close on October 15 I will equalized the 3 groups  so that no group is creating more than 32 cards.  If you end up with extra cards, you can use them for general swapping.  

Sign ups will be closed on October 15th to allow you just enough time to get your product ordered and cards made.  I’d suggest signing up sooner if you’re leaning in that direction.

  • I will post the list of those already signed up for the swap from now until “D” day in Orlando on Mondays.
    • You are listed in ALPHABETICAL ORDER BY FIRST NAME. Please check to see that I’ve spelled your name correctly.  Also, please check to see that I have your email written correctly since I’ll be sending email to participants only starting October 16th.
    • Please send me your mobile number if you have one so I can contact you (text) when in Orlando.  That would be to let you know the ‘exact location’ of our gathering.
    • Be sure to check both lists for your name.  
    • If your name has two asterisks ** behind it, that indicates to me that you’ve requested two groups and I’ve placed you in those 2 groups.  (I need all the self-help I can get to keep myself on track!)

I am available for questions or concerns all the time.   If I've forgotten anything, shout it out.  I'll add it to my update.  I'll be sending out an update every Monday prior to On Stage.  

I'm looking forward to seeing and meeting you in Orlando.  

If you can’t read the screenshots below, let me know.  I’ll find another way to send the list to you.

(I’ll be working on my Group 2 (or will it be Group 1??) cards this week. My first set of 32 is done.)
