(8/20/2010: the swap is now CLOSED for registration.) Leslie at Alpha Stamps wrote me a note today saying she ran out of the Envelope & Tag Books over the weekend, oh wow! Unfortunately, they are back ordered and the manufacturer will not have any until 'hopefully mid-September.' I searched online and found a couple of possibilities of where you could find this item in stock. Below is my updated swap call post with a couple of other online sources to check out:
Your techniques must be created on the set of 10 tags in the 'Envelope & Tag Book' -it can be found at Alpha Stamps (back ordered) -but also at Bluemoon Scrapbooking . . . and emma's paperie (thanks, Helen!) . . . and the online store, eCrater. Or find it locally! We are using Melissa Frances 'Attic Treasures' Envelopes & Tags Book, item GN292. You will purchase this item and then decorate the 10 tags with any technique(s) you wish. The technique(s) can come from the pdf file that you will receive when registering, from something you’ve dreamed up, or a technique you’ve found elsewhere. Your 10 tags can be a variety of techniques or all 10 tags can be done using the same technique; whatever you wish. The envelopes may also be decorated, but I will not require that. Be creative with the envelopes - or keep them simple if you prefer. They are the pages of the book. I will require brief instructions for your technique(s). Either affix these instructions to the back of the tag with your name and contact info – or if you need more room, type/legibly write instructions on a separate slip of paper that is tucked into the envelope page. Your Returns: You will receive a tag book filled with 10 different techniques; one of yours & 9 from different artists around the world! See the sidebar to register once you have located the envelope/tag book! Thank you . . .
