New Swap - Alpha Stamps Alice in Wonderland ATCs

Hi! I am announcing the first Creative Swap for 2009 today! I am very excited about it because I just love the images from Alpha Stamps that we'll be using. I also know many of you are fans of Alice in Wonderland . . . so without further adieu, here is the swap call. I hope you enjoy the idea and that I see you in the swap! Some of my own samples are highlighted here in this post for illustration. I've added descriptions on how I made these ATCs to my creative lenna blog: go here to read them, and . . . I have now added more ATCs for this swap -go here- to see the ones I created with fabric, transparencies & clear stickers.

Registration for any Creative Swap takes place on the blog now via a PayPal ‘Pay Now’ button. You can register for any open swap by finding the appropriate PayPal Button found in this blog’s sidebar on the right. Your choice of buttons will be #1) for the swap you are interested in and #2) for the mailing options -me sending to you within the USA or mailing swaps to you outside of the USA. After you have paid for postage and handling via the PayPal button = I receive notification from PayPal. You are registered for the swap! I will email you confirming your registration and send the FULL swap details including my mailing address. *Make sure I have your proper email and mailing address for confirmation and swap details. And, please be patient, but email me if you have not heard from me confirming your participation in the swap by 48 hrs.

Due Jan 24, 2009 February 3rd, 2009: an Alpha Stamps Alice in Wonderland ATC swap (9 for 9)
After seeing the many interesting and beautiful Alice in Wonderland images offered by Alpha Stamps, I could not help but decide to host an ATC swap using them! The swap specs:

– create and send in nine ATCs. Receive nine in return (one will be your own)
– Each ATC MUST use an Alpha Stamps Alice in Wonderland image from any of the image sheets, paper dolls, stickers, or rubber stamps available at Alpha Stamps. This includes the Tea and Tea party related collage images and rubber stamps. As long as you have something Alpha Stamps and Alice in Wonderland, you are good to go!
– your images (from sheets) may be card stock (paper), fabric, clear sticker or transparency – as Alpha Stamps offers all of these choices
– Create the base of your ATCs from fabric, paper, thin wood, acrylic, or anything you can imagine as long as it fits into a clear nine pocket plastic holder . . .
– All ATCs must be sent to me in a nine-pocket holder (look for baseball card sleeve)
– All ATCs must be 2.5” x 3.5” in size (6.4 cm x 8.9 cm)
– your design can be either landscape or portrait orientation
– Any media can be used in creating these ATCs
– your ATCs may be ALL the SAME design, ALL different, or a mix – 3 of 3 or whatever. It is your choice.
– If you wish to be included in the swap, your ATCS must be in my hands by: Saturday, Jan 24, 2009 I have extended the due date because of the winter holidays to:
Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009!

Each participant will receive a custom 'thank you' collage sheet as a gift from Alpha Stamps plus the chance to win a special *First Prize* for the most creative ATCs. Besides the collage sheet, Alpha Stamps’ owner Leslie Elledge is also donating an Alice in Wonderland Tarot Card Deck as the first prize, wow. Thank you, Leslie!

If you are new to creating ATCs or need some inspiration I will have links for instruction and design ideas for you when I confirm your registration. In addition I can answer your ATC questions via email.

Registration for the Alice in Wonderland ATC swap is $6.00 for mailing within the USA and $8.00 for mailing internationally. Use the ‘Pay Now’ buttons on the blog to register. If the buttons have been removed, the swap is full. This registration fee includes shipping and handling for nine ATCS, a small gift from Alpha Stamps plus any needed help from me with your ATCs. If you send payment to me via PayPal and you do not hear from me within 48 hours, or if you have any questions, please email me.
