View Full Version : 3rd Batch of Round Robins - FULL!

My last batch of round robins was so much fun, I thought I would do it again! This time, I used my Cuttlebug to dry emboss cardstock for the backgrounds. There is lots of texture on these cards!



I will have 21 sets of cards to send out. Sign up in the thread for a max of 2 spaces. I have limited it to 2 spots this time to give everyone a chance to sign up. If there is space left at the end of the week, I will remove the limit.

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? (I'll post pics tonight)

Sue W
05-24-2008, 06:10 PM
Thank you ... I'm finding playing these RR's really make me 'play' outside my usual style, which I'm really loving!!!

stormarela
05-24-2008, 06:19 PM
well, then, I think you might like this batch, its definitely unusual. I'm just glueing them all together, will scan and post next. The colours are all very cheerful, some pastels and some are bright,,, the embossed patterns will be a bit challenging to work with I think,, but alot of fun. It will make for alot of unique cards....

MissKoolAid
05-24-2008, 08:19 PM
I'll take a couple of spots. A #2 and a #3 position please! I love the challenge.

GarageBandFan
05-24-2008, 08:45 PM

Stormy! I'll take the middle slot on #19. (You and two kitty avatars!)

stormarela
05-25-2008, 02:20 PM
I've got you in number 19, nuttynanner, would you like a second spot?

Lise Bu

Are there any places left please - I will go anywhere x

stormarela
05-25-2008, 04:31 PM
Welcome to the Round Robin, Lise Bu. I have you in twice!

stormarela
05-25-2008, 05:11 PM
holy cow ladies, some one better soon knock some sense into me! I have quite a stack of RR backgrounds (63 of them) ... now to start stuffing the envelopes. Its going to be alot of fun in a few weeks when they start coming back to me! ... There is room for another person or two, and then they will go in the mail.

MissKoolAid
05-25-2008, 06:34 PM
The backgrounds look great!

nanner
05-25-2008, 07:11 PM
I've got you in number 19, nuttynanner, would you like a second spot?

Stormster...I'll take a second spot, but only if I'm not bumping someone else from the mix.

I'd like the last slot on whichever you prefer (#20 or #21).

Already got some ideas!

stormarela
05-25-2008, 07:17 PM
nuttynanner, you get the last spot of group 21! Have fun!

rockstarsgirl
05-26-2008, 01:50 AM
I'm so excited. I can't wait to start this all over again!!

MissKoolAid
05-26-2008, 09:00 AM
They are addicting aren't they?!? I might just have to host a batch one of these days (when vacation time starts!) Of course, I'll let everyone here know then. ;)

stormarela
05-26-2008, 09:36 AM
Great idea, MissKoolAid, its fun to host Round Robins. I love all the creativity that comes out of this.Its amazing to see all the different ideas and directions people can take the cards in. I love it.
Only a few spots left... I would love to mail everything out today.

sniisk
05-26-2008, 10:58 AM
Stormarela, you need a HUGE amount of stamps! Maybe you should buy an own post office :laugh:

nanner
05-26-2008, 11:26 AM
Or make REAL NICE with the postal carrier!

rockstarsgirl
05-26-2008, 11:40 AM
hehehe. i wonder what the mail people think when we hand them a stack of envelopes? Mine know all about swaps and always wonder what i'm sending out.

cairnlae
05-26-2008, 12:35 PM
I'll take the middle slot in 12 and 21 if they are still open!

nanner
05-26-2008, 12:39 PM
rockstar: that's funny...I would love to hear how you explain exactly what swaps are!

carniecairn: enter if you dare!

JAD
05-26-2008, 02:01 PM
I would like a #2 spot..That way I can mail out before I leave for China...I leave on June 7th..so third spot would be too late for me..:) I love your RR's
Hugs jeannie

stormarela
05-26-2008, 02:30 PM
I have a great lady at the post office... She overheard me saying that this was the best post office to go to, and now she bend over backwards to help out with postage and stuff.... but they do smile when I pick and choose which stamps I want, not just the plain ones, and never the machine printed label postage!

JAD, I think we are in trouble here, most of the mail I send out takes 10 days at least to get to the US. I don't think its going to make it in time at all before you leave.

I have an idea though. Would you like to make up a set of backgrounds, and be the number one player? I'll take 3 rd spot, and we can find a # 2 here. I can still look after it, but you can start it.

stormarela
05-26-2008, 03:06 PM
one spot left... who gets it? who is crazy enough to start this fun?

stormarela
05-26-2008, 05:10 PM
The last spot goes to Tweety. All I need now is Lise Bu's addresses and the swap is underway. Watch for them in your mailboxes.

Ibus
05-26-2008, 05:57 PM
You're lucky Stormarela! One of the ladies in our PO is a real 'jobsworth' She wouldn't give you snow in winter, to quote the polite simile!! Unfortunately, I seem to get her most of the time. The other one's a real sweetie and will help choose the stamps!

Sandymutt
05-26-2008, 05:59 PM
Alright let the party began. LOL:jiggy: Hey if JAD wanted to do that. I would be the 2nt player if you need me.;) WOW Love the color and textures of the base cards. These will be so much fun to play on;)

stormarela
05-26-2008, 07:04 PM
Ibus, here is a manipulative little bit of advice... when 'she' doesn't think you know she is listening, say something really nice about her... it just might embarass her into changing her ways... of course.. some times, its just all about being 'official' and of course "Post Mistress" is official!... I find that the post offices here are quite competitive.. being in a big city, there are postal outlets in drug stores here and there, so its fairly convenient to go to this one or that one, depending on my 'mood'. I told one post lady that the 'other' post office always had nicer stamps available.. well, the next time I went in,, she had the full selection.... ... you know, its all fair in love, war, and mail art.

stormarela
05-26-2008, 07:06 PM
thanks Sandy for your offer. JAD decided to wait till my next Round Robin, and without thinking about it, I have committed to another one! I have so much fun with them.

I still have to send you (Sandy) a card for the food table in your swap... I think its going to be something sweet....

Sandymutt
05-27-2008, 12:08 AM
Hey thats ok. Ready to help any time you need me;)... Cool I will look forward to seeing what you come up with for the food card. It will be a great package for the winner thats for sure.:jiggy:.

katilady
05-27-2008, 12:26 AM
I am so excited, these are crazy addictive! I love it when you make super pretty backgrounds and I get to add something oddball, like bugs! I love the juxtaposition!

stormarela
05-27-2008, 01:16 AM
omg bugs! of all the things I had been thinking might be on those backgrounds, bugs were never on the list... bring it on sister.. lets see whatcha got! ha ha ha

nanner
05-27-2008, 12:16 PM
Bugs...that is SO Kati! Yes...bring it.

rockstarsgirl
05-27-2008, 12:25 PM
YAY bugs! can't wait to see what you do with it.

stormarela
05-28-2008, 01:34 AM
you guys have put bugs on my mind! I just made a ladybug chunky page!

Sandymutt
05-28-2008, 01:56 AM
WOW I would love to see bugs flying around on the cards. That would be fun to see:jiggy:

I have pretty much stopped scrapbooking... its funny though, if you look through my scrapbooks, the pages are all there, nice enough, but most of them are without pictures. I just love making the pages... the rest --not so much....

katilady
05-30-2008, 10:19 AM
I never got into scrapbooking, but our local scrapping store also has some of the better mixed media supplies that Michael's and Joann's don't sell. When I went to visit I found out about their crops, I think I will try to go to one and only work on ATC's or chunky book pages! They also have an ATC club, but it doesn't have very many members. :(

stormarela
06-01-2008, 01:20 PM

Sandymutt
06-02-2008, 02:38 AM
Well I wanted to let you know I just finished group 6 and will send them off to Char in the morning. I really looked at the cards for a long time. As I looked at them they looked like crocodile skin. So that is what I went with for the theme. Hope you like them. Also, Char this will give you some time to think what to add to these cards. I'm glad that it didn't look like a snakes skin. I think Char would really be unhappy.:wideeyed: She hates snakes and wouln't want to mess with a snake card:nah:. So these are safe cards for her to play on.;) LOL:cute:

stormarela
06-02-2008, 02:43 AM
Sandy, I LOVE those crocodiles! You definitely worked your magic on those! Thank you, and I can't wait to see What Char adds... ( of course, my first silly thought was Crocodile Dundee!)... its late, and I am cracking myself up... thats gotta be a bad sign, eh?

Sandymutt
06-02-2008, 03:16 AM
LOL Hey I get alittle crazy when its late my self. It will be fun to see what Char adds. LOL I'm so happy that you like Croc's. I just wish that my camera did a better job on taking pictures of them. But once you see them in person you will be really happy. They are so much better then how they are showing here. Oh well one day I will get my other computer back and can then use my scanner to show cards. I think it does a better job. Well its late your way as it is here. I think I will turn in for the evening, 2:13 am here now. Talk to you later. Good night;)

Group #10 received. I'll add my style during the next few days and send the cards then to SueW. There is one letter I can't read in the address. Could you, stormarela, tell me her house number to me. Just want to be sure to send the cards to the right address. Thanks.

Sandymutt

Hey Lise Bu, I love what you added. Great start to your theme. I hope Tweety will show them when they are finished. I would love to see how they turn out.:jiggy:

Here's the finale of Group 21 (aka Team Stormy/CarnieCairn/Nanner).

Little backstory: Started with Stormy's lovely background (of course), then Cairnlae went vintage on it. I don't have much in the way of vintage, but recently grabbed my neighbor's throw-aways, including stacks of old photos of his family.

Looking through the pics, I noticed that from the time my neighbor was kid, up to a young man (he's in his late 70's now), every picture...and I literally mean EVERY picture of his parents showed them with NO smiles...ever. And often stone-cold stares. Even at Christmas. This was very sad to me. Other family members smiled, but not one photo I saw of the two pictured here showed much in the way of happiness. Moral of this card...live life to the full, folks. What will the photos we leave behind say about OUR lives? (Now go hug someone...or a nearby tree...kumbaya!)

We're calling this:

"Leave Happiness to the Moon"

nanner
06-16-2008, 11:14 PM
Oh, and our depressing cards are on their way to you, Stormy.

That is a great card.. and look how she is standing behind her man.. UGGGGG... I bet if she was standing in front of him, she would be smiling, and of course, if the wife is smiling, the hubby probably would be smiling too. What a treasure trove of photos!
