If you think 3 heads are better than one when it comes to making ATCs this is the place for you.

We are a fun group of ATC makers who like to spread the making of ATCs around to more than one person.

Here is how to get started……………..

First you sign up in the thread and tell us what themes you do not want so I can add your name to the list in the 1st post.

Next you PM your mailing address and any dislikes to me so I can add it to the address list. I will update this list as players come and go or change their status.

If you wish to take a break from playing at any time all you need to do is post in the thread if you want to let everyone one know and send me a pm so I can make it official by changing the list. I will move you to the HOMERS ONLY section of the address list until you ask me to change it. This way you will still get any you have started that have been completed by others but you should not get any new ones. If you do get new ones, please let me know in a pm.

To keep cards from being sent to inactive players I will move you to the HOMERS ONLY section of the address list if you have been inactive on the site for a month. Once you become active again you can pm me and ask to be placed back into active status.

And here is how a Round Robin works…………

Player 1 starts it off by starting 3 cards. These cards need to be more than a preprinted background. Please put something on them. On the back please put ATCS FOR ALL RANDOM ROUND ROBIN or AFA RANDOM RR at the top (so we know where it came from as there are 2 round robin groups) along with at least your user name. Mail all 3 cards to Player 2.

Player 2 will work on the cards. Add at least your user name to the back. Mail all 3 cards to Player 3.

Player 3 will finish the cards. Add at least your user name to the back. Keep 1 card and mail the other 2 back to Player 1.

Player 1 will keep 1 card and mail the other one to Player 2.

VERY IMPORTANT ~ Please remember to look at the most current list before sending cards to anyone to make sure they are still playing.

EQUALLY IMPORTANT ~ Please check what cards a player DOES NOT WANT. Do not send unwanted themes to anyone as they must pay to send them on to someone else .

If you get a set of cards and you have no idea what to do with them, just send them on to someone else.

Feel free to post eye candy whenever you want. Part of the fun of being in a Round Robin is seeing who is doing what. You can post them when you get them before you add anything, after you have added something or when you get a completed set. If you don't have a scanner or are not sure how to post them it is ok. Posting is not a requirement to join and have fun. There are no Round Robin Police sent to visit if you don't!

And you never have to say who you are sending to unless you want to.

And last but not least…………

iTraders: They are fun to give and fun to get so please remember them. Once you have a completed card you can give them to both the other players. When giving them you are the trade.

Welcome to the 10th CRRR thread!

I'm not ready to get active again quite yet but getting closer.

I can't believe I have been doing this since 2012, but I have!

We have had lots of players come and go. I get nostalgic when I look at some of the old threads and see the old friends that are not here anymore. I often wonder where they are and hope they are ok.

If anyone knows about any of them and want to let me know that would be great.

I'm with you on this xstitcher. Did you come over from the OS too? I've been doing ATCs for quite a while now and do remember some folks quite fondly. You do wonder sometimes what they are up too, even if hobbies change.

Thanks for your continued hosting!

Yes, I did.


Think I found it sometime in 2006 after I was laid off. I had been on a different site that had nothing to do with ATC until some member told us about them. We did a few trades that did not turn out to well so I found the old site and the rest is history.


Since there were only 8 or 9 of us who wanted to trade at the other place everyone was supposed to make cards for everyone that joined and send them to each person themselves. It would have been ok except for the players who we sent cards to that never sent them to anyone. I think we did about 4 or 5 of those "trades" then stopped.

I wanted to show this starter off since it was connected to the NEw year new something swap. It was a technique I tried and wasnt thrilled with the results for the swap but happy with adding cacti and using the backgrounds here. ( I have too many more backgrounds since the experiment involved a 8x11 pieces of card stock.)

What was the technique?

CastleQueen5

What was the technique?

It was called emboss resist. You paint the paper. Let it dry, Then you emboss an image and oh something... and well I should have used a better color for the base.

Spent most of today doing various cards - hoorah! Finished a couple of swaps with deadlines fast approaching, and then worked on some RR cards. These are the finished ones (there were some seconds as well).

These were worked on by:

Hearts: cinlan/thouartdelyrias/me
mice: carol/heymaggie/me
shrimp: allegrae, chronic reader/me
winter: heymaggie/silky/me

and now that I look at that last one, I'm pretty sure I sent the two homers to silky instead of heymaggie. Dang it. For some reason I had it the other way around in my head - but they're gone now, so I'll just have to beg her to pass the other one along. :) Figures that that's the one I mailed already - a bunch more envelopes are sitting next to my computer waiting for me to get to the post office for some more stamps!

I was thinking of asking for no alcohol, but maybe I mean no WINE cause I have some beer cards, and like them. I am just not a wine drinker. Not a beer drinker either. I have better things to do with my calories. No drinking your calories is my rule. But Cheesecake is a solid.

So all that to say really nothing.

Hey all, we all work on budgets playing in this group so...……………….


Please make sure you are putting enough postage on cards. No one wants to pay additional postage.


And if you are going to put embellishments on a card that cause it to be more postage it would be nice for you to include more postage for all the mailings to follow.

I don't usually show cards after I've worked on them if I'm the second player, but I wanted to share this one, as it was a bit different. I received three ATC sized pieces of double sided paper, with the instructions to use whichever side I prefered. (you can see both sides in the first photo). Of course, being me, using one side wasn't good enough, so I have found a way to use both sides... And now, on to a third player....

Of course, being me, using one side wasn't good enough, so I have found a way to use both sides... And now, on to a third player....

I hosted a small swap like this once for ATC Jams. It was called the double sided experiment. So what we did was send a set of 3, atc sized, double sided papers and the player had to chose. The twisted part was that we sent the same papers to two players to see, or experiment or test a hypothesis on how the sets would come out with the 2 different players picking a side. would both players pick the same side of the paper? The cards were lovely.

I like what you did with them.

That sounds fun.

I've tried a couple of times to send identical background off to different people to see what would come back in the RR - I think I've done it twice. Both times, I never got one set of the cards back. :)

After a long hiatus, I'd love to start participating in ATC Round Robins again with you lovely people! I miss artwork in my mailbox. :-)

I've been going through the forum and looking at the fantastic art from everyone. The coins are new to me - are they just 2.5" diameter circles instead of card sized? Or are they smaller, like circular inchies?

katelnorth

They are 2.5" circles, DragonBoo.




I've been going through the forum and looking at the fantastic art from everyone. The coins are new to me - are they just 2.5" diameter circles instead of card sized? Or are they smaller, like circular inchies?

After a long hiatus, I'd love to start participating in ATC Round Robins again with you lovely people! I miss artwork in my mailbox. :-)

I bought a die cut set from Sizzix, it had all kinds of circles. One is 2.5 in diameter. Be careful my friend has a circle set and she does NOT have the correct size in the brand she owns. You can also buy a die punch. EK success has the most durable. I just bought one from Hobby Lobby,(not EK Success) and it is working well, but I doubt it would punch through a chipboard background.

The most experienced crafter/worker at Michael's told me that their brand punch has a hard time with heavier paper, and not worth the cost even with a coupon.

So, something amazing just happened to me - I got caught up with my iTraders. ;)

Usually, I have a few sitting around because I tend to get cards back in batches from the same person, so there will be, for example, five iTraders to do for bluskyhare or castlequeen5. So it just takes me ages to remember to do it when I haven't done one in the last two hours.

Of course, I have a big pile of mail waiting for me to go through - seriously, I got like 7 or 8 envelopes today. I think a couple of them are for my swap, but still - I bet there's some RR stuff in there somewhere, too :)

starters with a twist

i dyed watercolor paper and paper flowers with saffron
one set came out darker than the other

each card has a flower and a mini paperclip
the twist is that the flower is not attached
the flower can be used or not used
the paper clip can be used or not used
either item can be positioned anywhere on the card

anybody game for either or both of these sets?

But she cant see our addresses. She was on Swap-bot in the atc jams and then quit.

I have enjoyed my time with the group. I have received some beautiful atcs by participating. Thanks to you and all. Don't be a stranger. Hugs, Judy

Of course, don't any of you be strangers, I will miss your beautiful artwork. I have 2 sets here yet which I am just going to send on to 2 of you. Sorry, that I have to drop out. Hugs and love, Judy..seascape131

This looks like fun! I may have to get in on the next group! :)

There is never a start time. You can join in on the fun anytime you want.

All you need to do is send me a PM with your name and address and anything you don't want to work on. For example, a lot of folks don't like nudity, scary stuff, some no holidays and such. If you have no dislikes say so and you will get anything.

We also work on coins now so you can say yes or no to coins.

Once I get your info I add you to the list and then the fun begins.

Sorry to see you leave us Seascape131.

I will move you to homers so your address will be on the list for a while anyway.

Since ksj1717 is looking at joining I am going to wait a bit before I send an update to see if I get a pm.

heymaggie I have sent you 2 sets, one from ThouArtDelrias and one from CastleQueen5. I did not work on them, I am just forwarding them to you because I am leaving the group due to just plain too much going on. Thank you, Maggie.

Good reminder Silky.

I've received CRRRs from Allegrae, HeyMaggie, a couple sets from Collegaint Ashley, and I believe a set from BluSkyHare. (I'm not at home as I'm writing this so can't check)

Hey guys,

Unfortunately, I will be going on homers only, and I will be forwarding any of the sets I still have. It's become harder for me to keep up with the sets I receive lately, and I tend to get very backed up, and then, I feel guilty for holding onto them as long as I do. So, I've decided it's best that I take an indefinite break from round robins at this point in time. I will update as I get sets mailed out.

I hope to be back eventually! :wubclub:

So, I did work on some of the sets which have been hanging around my house. Not all of them. But anyway. I'm in the US visiting my mother at the moment so I'm mailing everything I have ready to go for homers /on to 3rds/and a few starter sets. Envelopes are going out to allegrae, cinlan, carol, suzi and javazarf because you are the ones I owe homers to.

Once I get home, I'll try to work on the rest of the sets I have waiting.

(On a side note, CQ, looks like my mother is definitely going to move to assisted living near my brother in Scottsdale sometime this year, which will mean lots more trips to AZ for me, so who knows, I might really be able to buy you that promised cup of coffee before too many more years go by!)

You don't have to clean your house for me, lol. Though as I think we are looking at late August/early September for a move, you'll probably want to clean it at least once before she moves ;)

Thanks for having me! I'll be mailing out an envelope with starters to CastleQueen5 today (along with a MMH ATC). Thought I might as well kill two birds with one stone, so to speak.

I have a beautiful set from Sweetgypsy that needs one last artist to work on it. Unfortunately, my laptop conked-out Friday and is in being worked on, and it has my list of addresses downloaded on it so I don’t have any addresses with me. I only have my phone and iPad. The set is a colorful background with a black die cut of birds on a branch (Tim Holtz, I think), to which I added a vintage b&w photo of a young woman looking up at them. If you want to finish it, please pm your address to me and I’ll get it out. :jiggy:

Cleaned off my desk today. Found some stuff that needs to be sent out and iTraders given. I will get to them soon.

By the way - I have started a new trash swap. This is a trash challenge. Come over and have a look.

Here are a few finished cards which I worked on today - the stripey one is suzi/javazarf/me, the one with the cloth flowers (which didn't scan well because it's quite 3D) is castlequeen/javazarf/me and the yellow one is suzi/lindagiese/me.

I have envelopes going to castlequeen, suzi and javazarf already ready to go as they are people for whom I had homers, but I have about 6 or 7 more sets which need a third person, as well as a load of starters, so if there's anyone who is twiddling their thumbs waiting for cards to work on, let me know!

Attacking my CRRR box today. Mailed a few things that needed iTraders.

I have tried to start with the ones that have been in the box the longest.

"Be" Allegrae, BlueSkyHare + me
"That was lovely dear" Suzi, MRubyJean + me
"Green flower" (this was one of a non identical trio) BlueSkyHare, KateLNorth + me
"Legs" KateLNorth + me
"Capt. Underpants" Allegrae, MRubyJean + me
"Blue Collar" KateLNorth + me
"Gold Lady" ThouArtDelyrias + me

206041

I have these drying under books. Will probably tweak them a little when they are dry.

This group was especially memorable to me because I had the day off and arted with my son while he worked on one of his paintings.
