View Full Version : 2nd Round Robin - (FULL!)

My last batch of round robins was so much fun, I thought I would do it again!

All full up. Watch for another round next month!

I will have 13 sets of cards to send out. Sign up in the thread for a max of 3 spaces.

Each is a set of 3 cards. I make the backgrounds and send all 3 cards to player #2 who adds (the same or nearly the same) artwork to each of the cards and sends all three on to player #3. Player #3 adds the (the same or nearly the same) artwork to the cards, keeps one, and sends the remaing two back to me. I keep one and send the last one back to player #2. (its less complicated than it sounds!)

We each get a card what was completed collectively by the group. We all give eachother itraders points when the cards in the set are completed.

Okay, who is ready to play?

stormarela

Hello - Can I play please? I would really like to play two if possible - can I go into 4 or 5 with you and Sandy and which ever other one you would like to put me in?

stormarela
04-18-2008, 12:04 AM
You are in, Citykitten. Thanks for signing up.

As soon as all the 2nd players are in place, I will mail all 12 envelopes out. (not that its a race or anything.. lol)

sniisk
04-18-2008, 01:47 AM
I'd like to take part in this. Could I be the third player in two sets?

ScramperSue
04-18-2008, 01:49 AM

Rockstarsgirl and LilMissFirefly are in! Welcome, and have fun with this. I need your mailing address pm'ed to me, please Nicole.

Artpup

Thanks for the pm I would love to try this... If I am player 2 who gives me the addy of player three??? and How long do I have to work on them??? Thanks for the info Renne

stormarela
04-18-2008, 01:14 PM
Hi Artpup. I give you the addresses by pm. Everyone will try to get their cards out in a week. (sometimes its alot quicker, one or two days only) If you need more time let everyone know, by posting here. Its fun anticipating where they are.

You are player 2 in group 10.

sniisk
04-18-2008, 01:49 PM
I need only one or two days to make the cards but the postman can need three weeks or more to find me :twitcy:.

Ibus
04-18-2008, 01:51 PM
LOL Sniisk! I'm ahead of you in one group, so hopefully Scotland to Finland doesn't take too long!

stormarela
04-18-2008, 01:54 PM
Half of the fun is waiting for the mail, which in Canada, most often is very very slow!
I hope everyone can post pics of the cards before they mail them on. Its very inspiring.

sniisk
04-18-2008, 01:55 PM
Ibus, it's much faster to get mail from Scotland than from USA. Sounds smart that we are in the same group.

trini70
04-18-2008, 05:24 PM
I'll take a spot in #11 or #12, whichever is still available. I'll do both if you want. Doesn't matter to me.

stormarela
04-18-2008, 05:55 PM
Welcome to the round robin, Trini70. You have a spot now in 11 and 12!
There is one spot left, who wants it?

mrubyjean
04-18-2008, 07:04 PM
Could I have that last spot?

Meow2000
04-18-2008, 07:04 PM
I'll play agean :cool:

mrubyjean
04-18-2008, 07:06 PM
Go ahead Meow2000...we answered at the same time...I've got plenty of swaps to work on and will catch the next round robins! Either way, a cat gets the spot!!

Meow2000
04-18-2008, 07:09 PM
lol thats funny that post at the same time mrubyjean, yes we are both great cats purr

stormarela
04-18-2008, 07:23 PM
you can both be in. I accidently made 13 sets!... I guess it was meant to be!

OriginalYouth
04-18-2008, 07:34 PM
Since you are full, I added that to your title. :) Happy Round Robin'ing!

ScramperSue
04-18-2008, 08:34 PM
WOOT!! :jiggy: This is my first ATC round robin...very cool!:jimlad:
Is this the same thing as a JAM???? or a "progressive" ATC????

stormarela
04-18-2008, 08:46 PM
How it works Sue is I have made the backgrounds and mail player 2 , 3 of them, almost identical. Player 2 adds her artwork, and mails all 3 to player 3. Player 3 adds her things, keeps one card, and mails me the other 2 cards. When I get them, I keep one and send player 2 the last card.

Each of us signs the back, and each of us gets a card that all three of us worked on.

I am so impressed with the cards that are coming out of the first RR I hosted. Incredible work. I think everyone outdoes themselves!

ScramperSue
04-18-2008, 08:58 PM
yes, Susan...but do you know if this is the same thing as a JAM or a PROGRESSIVE??? Cause I have heard them called that, but never joined...just wondering if they are all the same type of swap, with just different names.

stormarela
04-18-2008, 09:00 PM
I'm not sure, I haven't been in those either!

Sandymutt
04-18-2008, 10:34 PM
Hey Sue, I think with a Jam you work on one cards and at the end of it the one who hosted it get the origenal and makes copies of it to give to the other players. Well that what I understand it to be. I did do one like thats before where 4 of us worked on one card. I got a copie of it. Anyway if anyone else knows more about them it would be cool to know the difference ;)....Oh stormarela, I'm so very happy to be in 3 more RR's. You have me dancing all around now. LOL WOW I knew this would fill up fast. You have the Hottest place around. :jiggy: And I'm so happy to be in it. lol :notworthy: TY TY TY :notworthy:

stormarela
04-18-2008, 11:04 PM
I am about to stuff the envelopes, and thought about scanning the cards to TEASE you with what I am mailing out. What do you think? Do you want a peak?

Sandymutt
04-18-2008, 11:54 PM
YES YES YES. That would be fun to get a peek at what we will be getting. We can start planning on what to do for a theme. :yes::jiggy:

stormarela
04-19-2008, 12:01 AM
This is a TEASE. I am showing you the card bases, but not telling you which group is which. hee hee.

Ibus
04-19-2008, 12:04 AM
YES Please! Will you label them by group so we know which one we are getting?

Sandymutt
04-19-2008, 12:10 AM
You are so bad. LOL :P. What a TEASER you are. WOW Cant wait to see what one I will be starting on ;)

stormarela
04-19-2008, 12:11 AM
Can't label them by group, they are already in the envelopes. You will just have to be surprised now!

Sandymutt
04-19-2008, 12:39 AM
You did a great job on them. Love the colors . They will be fun backgrounds for us to add our work to. What fun this will be :cute:

ScramperSue
04-19-2008, 12:40 AM
you are a TEASE! LOL I am very happy to be a part of this, Susan :)

stormarela
04-19-2008, 02:04 AM
I made the backgrounds by taking Glossy White Cardstock, spritzing with water, dripping ink refills on, then taking another piece of glossy cardstock sprayed with water, and placing it face down on the first. Then, I squished them together real well, and pulled them apart, let them dry and wu- lah. INKY FINGERS!

Sandymutt
04-19-2008, 11:16 AM
LOL That sounds like you was having so much fun get the base cards ready for all us to play on.:jiggy: The fun part for all us 2nt players is to see what cards will be coming in our mail box. Then think what will be the theme.:unsure::idea:;):twitcy:......

stormarela
04-19-2008, 02:33 PM
Well, that might be true Sandy, but the fun part now for me is waiting to see what comes back,,,, 13 sets of cards in this batch and 12 sets in the last RR, only 4 have made it back yet, so I have the daily thrill of looking in the mail box... I hope I don't forget anyone's iTraders points! (If I do, please pm me about it!) :wacko:

Sandymutt
04-20-2008, 01:37 PM
WOW with both RR's swaps going on. You should be getting a card almost every day or every other day. Now that would be a fun trip to mail box each day for you LOL. I know it makes my day to get a atc in my mail box. But just knowing that many will be heading you way. WOW What fun. I will have to start a swap sometime soon too. lol.:cute:

stormarela
04-20-2008, 03:50 PM
yes Sandy, do it, make up the backgrounds, and post a RR swap. My advice is get the backgrounds done first, as the swap fills up really fast! Oh, and just make sure you save me a spot or two! :)

Ibus
04-20-2008, 04:01 PM
Me too please Sandy!

katilady
04-20-2008, 04:03 PM
Yes, do it Sandy!!! These are so fun!

Sandymutt
04-20-2008, 07:42 PM
LOL WOW You guys are cracking me up LOL . You bet I will have you girls in my RR's.;)I will get to working on a bunch of cards . It will work out great as everyone will be working on yours here stormarela. So maybe in 2 weeks I can get some sets ready to go. By that time I think everyone will be ready to start working on a new batch. ;)....

stormarela
04-20-2008, 07:46 PM
Yay Sandy... we are all so funny, have to ensure our next 'hit' is lined up while we are still in the midst of the current one... HA HA...
hmmm... maybe we need some kind of therapy?

Ibus
04-20-2008, 07:51 PM
hmmm... maybe we need some kind of therapy?
:unsure: ..... but I thought this was therapy? ;)

stormarela
04-20-2008, 07:57 PM
well then, we must be all okay then, I am sure one can never have too much therapy!
:wacko: :jiggy: :wub: :laugh:

Sandymutt
04-20-2008, 08:29 PM
I have to say this is my therapy doing RR's :P....Well i'm thinking I might try doing some theme types and let anyone who likes that theme get in that group. 2 sets of the same themes. They will still be different, i'm thinking for instance like a dog theme. One set would be small dogs and the other set big dogs. Or buildings, old /new things. Just thinking about what everyone would feel about that type of RR. So what do you guys think, would you like working on something like that? Also up for any thoughts as to what everyone would like. This would be my 1st big swap so any info. will be wonderful to have. ;).....

stormarela
04-21-2008, 12:17 AM
oh that sounds good Sandy. One thing I can think of is make sure you get everyone's mailing address when they first sign up.

Sandymutt
04-21-2008, 01:08 AM
Will do. I will get a special book to keep all info. for the RR's in. This way I can make sure not to lose anyone. I may need to get hold of you if I need more info. on how to get started. Hope thats ok with you. LOL :wubclub:

ScramperSue
04-21-2008, 01:34 AM
I am able to host a swap now also...with a limit of 12 players and 3/3 so I could do one of these 4 sets of 3...I could even set a "loose" theme...on set floral, one set ladies, one set men, one set "open" what do you all think?

ScramperSue
04-21-2008, 01:35 AM
Sandy the BOOK is the best way! I started my on the OS, I got a cheapo journal from like the dollar store and as soon as I started trading I listed folks, now I have them in the book, and if I swap or trade with them again, I already have the address.

Ibus
04-21-2008, 10:15 AM
Sue, l did the same with a book, works very well. RRs don't go under the same rules as swops, which is how l got to do one before l am eligible for a swop! So you can have as many groups as you feel you can cope with

stormarela
04-21-2008, 12:29 PM
looks like there will be lots of RR for me to sign up in.. :)
and I am happy to answer any questions at all... although I am just winging it....lol....

stormarela
04-21-2008, 02:22 PM
Rockstarsgirl, I still need your mailing address.

All the cards are going out in today's mail... so artists, watch your mailboxes.

JAD
04-21-2008, 02:51 PM
ahhhh!!! With my work schedule, I didn't make it on time for the second RR :(
Hey maybe #13 is unlucky and you should do 14 sets ;)

Let me see...what is more important...going to work...saving lives, or making ATC's/RR...Looks like work made it as first choice...
Maybe I will make your next one...I had fun in your first RR.
Hugs!!!
Jeannie

Sandymutt
04-21-2008, 05:11 PM
Hey your the master here stormarela, We all look up to you Oh great hostess or the RR's :notworthy:. I do have a book with address of all the folks I have done trades with. Just if i'm doing the RR's swap I will want to have a special book for that. I think it would be better as I can check them off as to where they are headed and what came in, extra. Its good to hear how everyone else is working their's out too..........So have you already put yours up Sue?I didn't look so if yours is showing I will pop in. I want to be in yours too. So if I can't get in fast enuff( storms heading in for the next 2 days) pop me in some of the sets, anyplace would be great. ok? Thanks Loads Sue;)

stormarela
04-21-2008, 05:40 PM
I am pleased to say I now have Rockstarsgirls address, and all the cards are in the mail.
JAD - I'm sorry you didn't make it in this one, but I see there are lots of RR's in the future. When I have the last card in from my first round, I will see if its time to make more...

Ibus
04-28-2008, 06:44 PM
Got my backgrounds for Group 2 today. Love the colours, but nothing immediately leapt at me, but then again, my mind has been creating elsewhere today!

stormarela
04-28-2008, 06:53 PM
I made the backgrounds pretty generic, maybe it will grow on you, Ibus!

this is my first RR swap and I have a question regarding itrader and rep points for it. i'm person 2 in 2 groups....do i give stormarela itrader points for them now since i recieved them or rep points, or do i wait til the end? what about the other person in my group? when i get them back at the end do i give them itrader points or just rep points like in "normal" swaps where i get trade 3 and get 3 back? i read the faq's but can't seem to figure it out.

This is the way I do the rep points. If I am player 2 in a RR, I wait until I get my finished card back from the host. Then I give points to the host, and to player 3. Its easy that way, as everything is finished, and you have the card in hand with everyone's name on it.

If I am player 3, I give my rep points to the host and to player 2 when I keep the finished card and mail the other two cards to the hostess.

If I am the hostess, I give rep points to players 1 and 2 when I get the finished cards back from player 3.

I haven't been giving Rep points specifically for RR.

WOW I just got your RR cards so I can get to working on them. Have to put the old thinking cap on as to what cool thing I will be adding. This will be fun. lol Also I got the card back that you, char and I worked on at the same time. How cool is that.:jiggy: It sure did turn out cool looking.;) I will be having fun playing on this new set of cards over the weekend.......

Sure thing sniisk i'm not sure how long it will be for them to get to you. But starting Monday it should be in a week to 10 days I would think. Anyway let me know when they get to you. k...Stormarela i'm so happy that you like what I added. With your flower on the cards I though that the birds would be fun to add for this theme. Looking forward to see what sniisk adds to them.:yes::D....

Sandymutt
05-09-2008, 11:42 PM
Meow2000 Your groups cards really turned out so cool.;) .....I'm thinking of adding a geisha or maybe a samurai. Have to see how a drawing on the cards will work as to what one I will go with. But thats what I'm planning to add. They will be fun to work on. I can't wait to get my hands on them :)...

As I was looking at the cards I will be getting from trini70. I seen that they have different names on them. So I will make copies of the sets so we each will get the one original as well as a copie of the other two. I plan to make the people different on each card. So it will be fun to have the other set to go with the original card.;)

ScramperSue
05-10-2008, 02:01 AM

Ok I wanted to let you know I finished my cards for group 12. Stormarela, I will be sending Friend and Good off to you early next week. These were fun t work on.

Sandymutt
05-11-2008, 03:29 AM
Its sure is. I love seeing what folks come up with on cards. You just never know what the cards will look like at the end. But always they are so cool and so much fun to get. lol I'm really happy with our Oriental cards. Its that team work that makes them great cards:yes:

trini70
05-11-2008, 07:57 AM
Wow Sandy! When you said youu couldn't wait to get them you meant it. It's a good thing we only live one mail day apart. I love them! I can't believe you did all that so fast. My hangup w/ the cards was the color. What to do w/ purple? Finally, I decided, I like Asian cards so that's what it's going to be. You just don't see purple & Asian themed together really, until now!:biglaugh:

Sandymutt
05-11-2008, 01:13 PM
I'm so happy that you liked what I added Trini70. Yep the mail is fast for that short hop from Ks. to Mo. LOL I really love the theme too. Makes for a fun RR.;) I just have so much fun working on RR's that once I get them I can't wait to start playing on them. lol I do have another set that has me stumped:confused:. I'm trying to think what to add to them. Its funny butsometimes you have to sit and just look at them for a day or two. Then all of a sudden you know just want would be cool to add. I'm really happy with our team work. We did good girls:yes:

stormarela
05-11-2008, 05:39 PM
I know exactly what you mean about sometimes you have to look at them for a while before you know what they need. It always comes to me though, eventually!

stormarela
05-23-2008, 02:01 PM
I have been collecting some interesting things to use as backgrounds... Paint Sample swatches from the paint store ( I painted the front door, and picked up a huge handful of swatches) ... Some of the the greeting cards I get with swaps have very cool useable fronts... I think I am going to make all the backgrounds for the next round robin with 'found' and recycled stuff.... I'll see how it works out anyway...

Sandymutt
05-23-2008, 10:59 PM
Oh cool. That sounds like great background for RR's. I have alot of paint samples that I have saved over time. Its fun to recycle things like that. And also they come in so many colors and textures. Also if you go to the paint store ask them if they have discontinued walpaper books. Alot of the time they throw them away. So folks check out all your paint stores and get some really cool paper you can use for all sorts of crafts. ;)
