Rolodex - The RePlay
Welcome to The RePlay Rolo Swap. This will be an ongoing swap. I will serve as the monitor of this thread, posting updates as needed, making corrections and answering any questions, etc., but trading will initiated by you with the other participants who have signed up. Please use your personal messaging system to work out your trade requests.

Since this thread will be ongoing you can sign up or drop out when you wish, trade when ever and with whom ever you want at any time.

There will be some basic guidelines to follow:

1. The rolodex card size is 3 x 5 (if someone has the smaller size that's ok too, but please let us know before you buy anything).

2. You will set up your own trades via personal messaging or email.

3. The format for the address rolodex card should be uniform:

user name on top and first
real name
address
telephone and/or email are optional

4. Artists can list a couple of topics/themes they might like have on their card but
always remember this can be artist choice. Please discuss this with your trading
partner BEFORE the actual trade.

5. Please make the back of the rolo card look nice as well so if there is an address
change the new address can go right on the back and still look artsy.

I wrote a "how to" for rolos: http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2177

Here is our previous ROLODEX--The Revival Thread (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1155), hosted by Rocnic.



PARTICIPATING ARTISTS IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER:

c = circular rolodex
f - flat rolodex

NOTE: When making rolodex cards, if the person has a "c" behind their name it means they have a circular rolodex base and the art on the back should go upside down (holes at the top) and if the person has an "f" behind their name it means they have a flat rolodex base and the art should go in the same direction on the back as on the front (holes as the bottom).

Got a question .... The Subscription pages do not have the little box you can check to move them to another folder. Is Roc's thread completely closed?? If I unsubscribe and try to resubscribe it to another folder will it let me?? In the past you could not subscribe to a thread that had been closed. Been there, done that ....

shoreart
04-01-2008, 01:28 PM
Linda, I haven't closed the old thread yet. Just in case we have some stragglers. When it does get closed, I think it gets archived somewhere..but am not sure.

Linda4atc
04-01-2008, 01:34 PM

I received a stunning rolo today from Paperscraps. "Gulp" :yes:

My husband held up the envie today and asked "did you get this card from ..... yet?"
I guess he was asking because both sides of the envie were slit open:arghh: By the grace of God, everything was there!!!! I really looks like someone took a paper opener to the sides.

oh that cat rolo is so awesome!

amyfaerie
04-02-2008, 08:30 AM
i concur, roc . . . tanyas' cat rolo is awesome! (the cows are great, too--barb's gonna love them!)

sigh! i actually am here, and i'm gonna do better at popping in more often now! i signed up for WAY too many swaps, which is ridiculous, because i don't really enjoy them . . . but that's another topic altogether. regardless, i'm caught up--and i've put in my letter of resignation at work, so a weight is lifted off my shoulders in that capacity, too!

the hubs and i are really doing it--moving to OR or WA in july. jobs or not. lol! barb and joyflower, watch out! i'll be buggin' ya for meetups before you know it!

i actually think i owe no one rolos! if i'm mistaken, let me know . . . there are quite a few people who i'm waiting on rolos FROM, but that's not me putting on the pressure! LOL!

wme133
04-02-2008, 09:14 AM
Got my adorable rolo from TotallyOzSome!! Love it.
I'll have one out to you next week....after the sleepover...wooohooo.

I don't think I owe any other rolos at the moment...but if I do, let me know.

JoyFlower
04-02-2008, 10:06 AM
Hi, everyone - I am slowly getting caught up - I owe rolos to:
*Lisa B
*Grrrdjules
*Gezza
*Tanya
I think that's it....if I am missing anyone PLEASE let me know. Seems my brain is barely functioning these days!

Tanya - those are great rolos!

Amy - I would love to meet up! There are lots of traders in WA, but they are mostly on the west side...depending on where you land, there will be lots of opportunities for live trades and visits. HHC is part of an ongoing live trade group - I may have to crash the party now that the weather is improving!

04-02-2008, 11:03 AM
Amyfaerie! Are you maybe coming here to Eugene? I think we talked about that via email before...

amyfaerie
04-02-2008, 01:26 PM
hee hee! i'm not sure yet. my mama-in-law is in eugene, and it's where i'd like to be (not because of her, really . . . lol! i just love it there.)

however, i have resumes out at several schools looking for new english instructors . . . in portland, roseburg, coos bay & bend in OR, and at spokane, bellevue and aberdeen in WA. i've heard from the school in aberdeen, WA . . . and i've made it to their second round of the application process. However, who knows when the schools will make their decisions--probably not until summer.

AND--if I don't land a job, we'll move anyway. :cute:

i'm a little afraid, but we need the change. lol!

Tanya
04-02-2008, 03:12 PM
Change can be really good, yep scary at times and a 'little' stressful. Crossing all fingers, knees and toes that you get what you want Amy. Tx ;)

Linda4atc
04-02-2008, 03:29 PM
Good luck amyfaerie I'm in Coastal Northern CA so after you relocate if you take a trip south look me up too.

Wanda you are so lucky, everytime you mention the sleepover I wish I was going to. I have done many quilting and scrapbooking weekends. They are soo fun! I even had a chance to do a quilting cruise with 26 other ladies (and a couple husbands) once, it was awsome!!!

Hi can i ask ... do the rolo cards need to have the cut out bits at the bottom ? if so how far apart should they be as ive seen them with the cut out tabs close together and far apart.

elaine x

I am going to order some in the next day or so when i find the right one as i cant seem to get hold of the one i posted the pic of as its from a dec 06 gift list :(

But as id like to make some sooner rather than later id be greatful.

If their is a template anywhere to exact size i can print out and cut maybe ?

I've never done a Rolo card but I'd love to trade with someone else who never has done one before (or who wouldn't mind taking the risk of swapping with beginner Rolo maker. I *have* done many ATCs and chunkies, though).

I'd like cicular, I think, and I'd love anyone I'm trading with to follow the theme of creating a card that reflects you or your user name!

Linda4atc
04-04-2008, 03:22 PM

Well ladies, as usual, the rolos are great. We made group rolos today at the sleepover. We started one for ourselves, and then passed it around as a jam. So each rolo had a little of everyone! Otherwise we are just arting and shopping for art supplies. More tomorrow! Keep creating!
Be Well,

Silly beginner question: do both the flat and circular files have the same hole configuration?

Linda4atc
04-06-2008, 09:35 PM
yes it's just that on the circular one you see the backs upside down as you flip through it.

Smokeysmom...Love that Land of Odd rolo!! Wow, so cool!! Yours from me are in the mail. Hope they make it to you safely!

I have a question. I use an index card box for my ATC addresses. The index cards are 3 x 5 but don't have holes in them to fit on a rolodex. Are those still considered rolos or do they have to have the cutouts on the bottom?

And I'm not clear on the difference between C and F in your first post.

If I use these 3 x 5 index cards, what do I call them? F?

amyfaerie
04-07-2008, 08:57 PM
hi! amerasu, your index cards ARE the same as rolos. if you were to trade, you could just specify you want yours without holes. we all usually make them a little thicker than just one index card . . . like two or three together, so that they're like a heavy card stock.

for a box, you'd want F [as in flat tray] cards, because cards for the circular [C] holders have a back side that is upside down. the F cards have a front and back that both point in the same direction.

i hope that helps a bit!

Also, I forgot to mention themes when I signed up, hearts, flowers, whatever depicts the other artist, artist choice.

04-10-2008, 12:09 AM
ok, i think i've finally decided to take the plunge and join the famous rolo group! i have a million things to do, but instead, tonight i decided to just sit down and try a rolo. lol. it didn't turn out at all the way i planned for it to, however i'm still pretty pleased with it. i feel like i should add embellishments (eyelets, ribbon, chipboard, etc.), because right now it has none. what do you all think? are embellishments popular/standard for rolos or not really? i've been wanting to make an RAK for an atc friend of mine, and thought this would be the perfect way, so i can't post it until she receives it, but then i will post and i'll want your feedback for future reference! i think i messed up a little bit (put my info on what i consider the back) but hopefully she won't mind.

i don't own a rolo yet, but when i do finally get one, i'm hoping it will be a flat. themes i enjoy: flowers (esp. lillies, sunflowers, gerber daisies, poppies), collage/mixed media, vintage, frogs, fruits (citrus fruits, cherries, berries, pears), polka dots, paisley, stars, watercolor, mermaids/ocean life, babies and/or animals with wings and/or crowns . . . favorite colors: any shade of blue, especially baby blue! coral/melon, black/white combos, brown/blue or brown/pink, that is probably way more than you ever wanted to know. you definitely don't have to list all that, i just wanted to give a lot of options!

thanks for adding me and i look forward to trading with you all soon! PS: sorry i'm so chatty!

:chatterbox:

rocnic23
04-10-2008, 07:26 AM
welcome inkadinkado. you can make the rolos anyway you want to really...and there is a learning curve that every one goes through. it's all part of the process. shoreart did make a thread on "how to". i think she references on page one of this thread. on circular rolos the address can easily go on the back as the card flips upside down when you turn it. on flat tray rolos you can still put the addie on the back however this requires the person to turn it around to see it then. but i have a done a couple like that. there really are no right and wrongs when it comes to things like that.

04-10-2008, 10:39 AM
Well only Moggy and Shelly knew this, but the first morning at the shore house I fell down the stairs! My ass has been so black and blue, now turning purple and green!
I've been living on painkillers all week, and it's been real tough going, the flight has just about finished me off, I have bumps, and scrapes on my back and shoulders, I finally let go in the car on the way home and had a little cry, I will rest a little now, but I have our two week holiday in 9 days and a 11 hour flight ahead, this time the time difference in 5 hours forward instead of 5 hours back. I need to get my brain into gear. Without all you guys being such wonderful fun, I'd have been a wreck, thankyou all so very much.:wub:

Oh you poor thing. I'm sooo sorry to hear that you have been living with that. Geesh! I can certainly relate. Roc knows all about my having fallen from a stupid bus on one of my trips just about a month ago. Yep...big bruised butt!!
I feel sooo sorry for you now having to go off on another trip while needing time to recover. I do hope you ask for the very gentle massage this time ;)
There is part of me that wishes you'd shared your mishap with us....but then there is part that knows you may have been sorry for that...lol

I'm trying to be happy that you all had such a good time, without the rest of us...:skeptical: I'm just slightly green. Sorry about your spill SusieT! That wasn't alcohol induced, was it???:err: Hope you're healing. I found out where "slippers" got their name one morning as I hurried down our stairs in my leopard slippers. In a flash I was at the bottom, one slipper lodged in a bookcase, a picture on the wall broken from flailing arm! OUCH!!!! My tailbone took forever to heal. I hope your posterior is no longer bicolored!!:wideeyed: Treat it with plenty of TLC.
grrrdjules...I LOVE those monkeys!! Although the real ones in WofOZ freaked me out as a kid, big time nightmare material!!!
Welcome inkadinkado! Enjoy this little hen house!! Everyone here is full of love to shower you with.

Wow what totally awesome rolos everyone, gotta love those monkeys.


Arteezmom. I can asure you that no alcohol was involved in the incident, It was first thing in the morning, after an early night, jet lag, not drink lagged!!!!!!

Gezza

Jetleg, my rolo is fab, I love all the texture:wubclub:

Jules, those monkeys are brilliant, a lot nicer than the original ones!!!!

I'm glad you all had a good time away, but you maybe should have taken a male nurse with yo just to make sure your bruises were properly looked after!!!!!!!

Me please Jetleg!! I am hoping do do some more this weekend, much more fun than cleaning!

Lily Lemon
04-11-2008, 04:28 PM
I have a question. I'm sure there's no right or wrong answer but I'd love to get some thoughts on this. I don't know what to do with the backs. I read in the "how-to" post to leave room for a future address change on the back so I've left my backs pretty plain. I've now seen other artists doing much more elaborate backs and I don't like my backs now in comparison ( I wonder why we always compare ourselves to others!:unsure:).

I'm wondering if it's ok not to leave new address space on the back. I'm sure some people know they're likely to move in the near future based on if they have jobs that move them around, are in college, in the military, etc where they move a lot. Other people, like me, know they're not likely to move. Can I make an executive decision that I don't need address space on the back?

Thanks in advance for any feedback

grrrdjules
04-11-2008, 04:46 PM
I don't. I fill up every little bit! :)

Gezza
04-11-2008, 04:50 PM
And so do I, I'd much rather look at something arty than a whole lot of space!!!!:spinny:

Lily Lemon
04-11-2008, 05:02 PM
Ok! I'll probably being adding to my backs since they've yet to be sent!

rocnic23
04-11-2008, 05:42 PM
lily lemon...normally most people do something a little artsy on the back just in case it is needed for an address change and you turn it over there is something pretty on the back as well as the front...but it doesn't have to be as elaborate.

i made another rolo . . . it is for vbr in exchange for a card she made for my altered playing cards collection. she likes red/black/white combos and vintage pics of children with their pets. i feel like i could've added more, but didn't know exactly what. i guess with time i will feel more comfortable. i'm going to teach myself right now how to upload an image in this thread and see if it works . . . cross your fingers! feedback is appreciated, so i know what to do/not to do, what people like/don't like, etc. for future reference; i kind of have troubles with "constructive criticism" but i am trying to get over that, because in the world of art, there are going to be a lot of people who don't necessarily like your art.

Bluebelle235
04-12-2008, 04:22 AM
Well, Inka, I think your first rolo is just great !!! :jiggy: I don't think there are any rights or wrongs, to me it is about the artist expressing themself in their own style and I just love all the different styles. It is what makes it all so wonderful and interesting and fun !!! I say, have fun and go for it !!! And I would love to trade rolos with you !!!!!

Gezza
04-12-2008, 06:38 AM
Inkadinkado, Your Rolo is Divine, will you please add me to your list??? :jiggy:

Lily Lemon I love my rolo, Juicy and Sharp:jiggy:
