I have copied and pasted from here:
http://www.cricut.com/me...639&mpage=1&key=

This is actually the Fourth round for this swap!!

The first round can be found here:
http://www.cricut.com/me...eboard/tm.aspx?m=2921204

The second round is here:
http://www.cricut.com/me...eboard/tm.aspx?m=4112234

The third round is located here:
http://www.cricut.com/me...eboard/tm.aspx?m=5334881

If you check out those links, there are links to my Photobucket account where you can see some of the great cards made for the previous rounds!!!


Here's how it works.
So as some of you know, I am a little bit addicted to hosting these swaps! LOL. It "forces" me to stay motivated, and it also is a great stress reliever (well fo rme it is!). We tried this with a Fall Card front SWAP and a Christmas/Winter SWAP and I think it is going well! This is pretty cool, and think of the money you'd save on shipping! And since they are not quite as "bulky" as cards, you can save on storage space. If you want to use them, slap on some adhesive, stick them to a card, and Viola! Instant card!! So here it goes...

Everyone will create a card front, a standard A2 size only please, so you will get 4 from an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of card stock (see all the money I am saving you?) They should be NO LARGER then 4 1/4" by 5 1/2". They can be different or the same, that is up to you! Since this is card fronts ONLY you WILL NOT send envies!! They should really have at least two layers. The base and then build on top of that.
Please be sure to send them in an envie large enough to receive cards back. Please include STAMPS and a return envelope inside your envelope (NO METERED MAIL!! Or the printed postage labels. They ONLY are good for the day they are printed!!!!)
Generally I like to do 6 months at a time. And it is perfectly fine if you do all 6 months and send them at once, but if you are going to do that, I only ask that you place each month into a baggie marked with the month/theme and your MB name AND real name. If you send them all in at once AND you wish for each month to be returned at once they are swapped, please include 6 envelopes, each with enough postage to return them to you. You may send in a book of stamps, or you can send the cash, or you may PayPal the money to me, that is up to you. If you wish them to be returned 2 months at a time to save on postage, that too is fine. The best thing to do is add a note in the package when you send them if you are sending multiple months in at a time. Sending one month at a time is perfectly fine also!
PLEASE put your cards into a baggie to protect them from the elements!!! My mailbox isn't always the driest place and I don't want them getting ruined in the rain, especially if the mail comes and I am not home!!! It's rare, but it does happen! On the baggie, PLEASE label it with your name and the month that the cards are for. Too often fronts could be considered fitting into a couple of themes and I wouldn't want your cards ending up in the wrong them. (ie Masculine instead of birthday) This makes it easier on me, and also means you will get your fronts back sooner as well!!! A win win situation!!!

Please send them in groups of 8 (so you will use at least 2 pieces of Cardstock for the 8 bases -one piece of 8 1/2 x 11 Cardstock will make 4 bases for your fronts.) If you choose to do more, that is great, but please keep in groups of 8. Please do not send in more fronts then there are members, or you WILL get back some of your own! YOU ONLY NEED TO MAKE A TOTAL of 8 FRONTS to Participate!!!! Making more is a PERSONAL preference!!!!!!

They may be the same, or completely different, you decide! There is no requirements as to what you can/can't use (I get asked that al lot!). All I ask is you do your best!

Please note the due dates! No one wants to wait around for people to send in their stuff before they can be swapped out! I am pretty easy going, if you sign up and need to back out, it really is OK, just be fair and let me know! Also, if you need to skip a month, that is perfectly fine as well!!!!!!! Please note that the first month for this does not start until MAY!
PLEASE refer to the original post to see if your cards have been recieved. I don't mean disrespect to anyone, however I can't possibly PM each member to let them know when items arrive. If after you sent them and a few days have passed, and I don't post that I have gotten them, then by all means ask!
Just like the last round, I will post teasers on my Photobucket account. This way if you want to go and take a look you can, if not it won't spoil the surprise. The links will be added when the month comes to an end.
OPEN to outside the USA!!! I have a few overseas swappers. Generally they send their swaps, then I take them to the PO, ad they PayPal me the money for postage. If this is okay with you, then you are more then welcome to join! Pease just be sure to allow enough transit time.

This swap is open to all, you can join at any time! I don't usually cut people off so that we will all get a nice selection of cards each month. And it is better to do it this way so that if folks have to sit out a month, there are still penty of cards to get swapped out for those who make cards that month.

Thanks Jennifer! What a pain to have to go back and forth looking at all of those smiles! Since I guess the codes were differnet, I couldn't just copy and paste them! It's nice to have new smile options, but a pain to have to relearn it all! And I am really bummed that I lost all of my posts! It took a long time to get all those posts I had!!!Crying

Hi Gina. I wanted to do a quick post to let you know that I will not be sending in for September. My nephew's wedding is this weekend and I have been doing a lot of last minute (meaning panic phone calls from bride) decorations, etc. so will not have time to do this month. Thanks.

I also find it extremely annoying that you have to wait in between posts! I often times have them all lined up and hit "OK" to post them all. Makes it easier for me. Now I keep getting an error saying "can't post again in ___ seconds"
ANNOYING!

I am also very sad to report that I won't be able to take pictures this month. Crying I went to a Regional Seminar for Stampin' Up yesterday, went to take pictures, and my camera died. Crying Crying It may just be the battery needs to be relaced, but at the moment it isn't in the finances. I truly am sorry to all of you. I welcome you all to add your pictures here if you are able. Please forgive me!!! I WILL have a new camera/battery for next month!!!

I just wanted to remind everyone to PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE label your swaps! Either stick a note inside your baggie, or write on it.

I have a pile of swaps in a bag with no information written on the bag, and I now have to go back through everyone's swaps to try to figure out who's it is.

I am not trying to be rude, it just saves me a lot of time!

Thanks so much!!!!!
