I have opened my last pack of watercolor ATC blanks. Would like to trade for:

I have numerous medical journal text pages
Nice ATC mat board blanks with beveled edges
Yupo paper 9 x 12
2x2 cross stitch kits (flowers in a pot, includes thread, needle, printed cloth-everthing needed to complete)

Thanks for looking

Why not use a 2.5 x 3.5 template and cut your own out of watercolor paper...that's what I do.

I figure if you cut the Yupo to ATC size, you could get 9 per sheet. So how about an even trade of 9 watercolor ATC per 1 sheet of Yupo. If that is acceptable, I have 8 sheets of Yupo. How many would you like?

I know I've posted this before. If you take this template to an office supply store that does paper cutting, and buy a 250 sheet pack of 8 1/2 X 10" white card stock, it will cost you $18.00 ($2.00 per cut) plus the cost of the card stock, for 2,500 atc blanks. Takes a LONG time to go thru them.

Dina 54, I mostly use watercolor paper for my ATC's. But I was wanting to get rid of the yupo, something I won't use, in exchange for the WC ATC's something I will!! :DOne of my New Year's resolutions is to get rid of stuff I won't use by trading, selling or donating:yes:

If you have any Yupo left I would be happy to trade watercolor blanks for it. I have wanted to try Yupo to.

It's a synethic paper made of polypropylene...very smooth and does not absorb the watercolor like wc paper does. You can get some pretty interesting design on it but it can be quite frustrating as well.

I used wc paper a lot too- and bought myself a mini guillotine that cost me around 10 Euros- well worth the small outlay!

Yes, I broke down and bought a good paper cutter, although haven't had to use it yet because I did lots of trades for paper I did not use!!! Love this forum!

I use regular 110lb. 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock myself... on the 8 1/2" side I measure out 1/2", 4", 4 1/2", 8" then on the 11" side I measure out 3/4", 3 1/4", 4 1/4", 7", 8", 10 1/2"

it gives me 6 cards with lots of room to test colours and go over the lines to give a smoother picture...
