View Full Version : Building a House RR



rockstarsgirl
07-08-2008, 08:05 PM
I have this idea for a RR. It's kinda following the Build a House with ATC's, House Shaped Chunkies and Stormarela's paint chip RR. I have lots of samples of different materials for building and decorating your house and we can make ATC's with a lot of theme. There will be different groups just like a normal RR and these will be divided amongst the different materials. The materials are: Fabric (sheers, couches, rugs), wallpaper, paint chips, counter samples (like corian). There are many groups in this RR (so it might take a while to fill up and finish). Please take a max of 2 groups in each material in the beginning. If we have a hard time filling up, I will let you all know and I will open it up to more people.

If you want to take on more than 4 groups, I ask that you have an itrader of 7+. This is to protect you and all the people in your groups. 4 groups and less does not require any itrader. Since there are so many groups, there will not be a strict 2 week time line. Thanks!!

Put me down for 2 paint chip spots!

Mysia
07-08-2008, 09:08 PM
Put me for one paint chip and two wallpaper please. :) I love the idea on this one.

rockstarsgirl
07-08-2008, 09:51 PM
Ok, you two are signed up...Thanks for playing!!

kysunflower
07-08-2008, 10:23 PM
I'm afraid I don't understand how this works. Is it doing regualr atcs using the supply in anyway or a house atc.
I adore paint chips, have a large collection, so I'd love to be in 2 paint chip groups.

rockstarsgirl
07-08-2008, 10:42 PM
You can do an atc in anyway with the supply. This is just going to be the background of the ATC. It was just a way of having some odds and ends come together...things that would be used in your house and making a RR out of it. I've added you to the paint chips!

MissKoolAid
07-08-2008, 11:37 PM
I'll keep an eye on this thread but I'm very tempted...

Chardonnay1965
07-09-2008, 05:18 AM
I am not understanding what we're supposed to be doing??I am totally confused..
do you have an example or something??
are the ATC's supposed to be house themed??

kysunflower
07-09-2008, 09:36 AM
Can I have a counter top group too please. I actually have a few of these and have been wanting to do something with them, so this might get me going.

rockstarsgirl
07-09-2008, 02:13 PM
The theme of the ATC's can be anything you want....just like a normal RR. The base that I send out is just something you would use in your house. The base materials are all samples for things that IRL you could use around your house. Does that make more sense?

I have you added kysunflower.

Chardonnay1965
07-09-2008, 04:41 PM
ok..can I be a 3rd player In paint chips and a third player in wall paper..:D

rockstarsgirl
07-09-2008, 04:43 PM
yep, yep yep!

Chardonnay1965
07-09-2008, 05:15 PM
if there is space...I'll take a 3rd spot in another paint chip and another wallpaper 3rd spot..:D

rockstarsgirl
07-09-2008, 05:31 PM
I will add you in!

kysunflower
07-09-2008, 07:02 PM
I hate to bother you, but can I have a wallpaper too? I promise I'll wait now to see if they all fill up, if not I might take more (?).

rockstarsgirl
07-09-2008, 07:11 PM
You sure can!

rockstarsgirl
07-09-2008, 07:14 PM
I will start sending out on Monday with cards from the CAT so we still have pleanty of time to get more people. With everything going on, I don't expect this to fill up fast....but I wanted to get it started.

Ibus
07-09-2008, 08:29 PM
Will you put me down for one of each kind please. I prefer 3rd places, but will do some 2nds to get them moving. In the fabric category I'll do as many as you are prepared to give me!
Thanks. :jiggy:

rockstarsgirl
07-10-2008, 12:11 AM
hehehe. YAY Ibus! I'll put you down for a bunch lol. Just check and make sure I have them right.

stormarela
07-10-2008, 12:42 AM
Please put me down for one rug. I really have too much going on at the moment, but this seems like fun!!!!

rockstarsgirl
07-10-2008, 01:08 AM
You're all set. Your paint chip RR was part of the inspiration, so I'm glad you could join!

Ibus
07-10-2008, 07:35 AM
Perfick!! :) Thanks

ScramperSue
07-11-2008, 02:06 AM
ok Nicole, I'm gonna bite:
2 counter tops
2 rugs
2 couchs
2 paint chips
2 wallpaper

how on earth can you do the sheers??? I am drawing a blank :(

rockstarsgirl
07-11-2008, 02:11 AM
I have fabric samples of the sheers. All different colors (why people would want some of these fabrics really in their home is beyond me lol) so I think they'll make awesome backgrounds. I'm gonna leave the fabric separate from the backings so that if you want to sew on them you can or even (in the case of the sheers) put some text or whatever behind them. This is what I did in the Layers, Textures and Glazes IV swap, you can see them in my gallery. Is that what you were looking for? I'm doped up on migraine medicine....so my describing and explaining might be bad. heheheh.

ScramperSue
07-11-2008, 02:39 AM
well, when i think of sheers i think of the "under curtains" LOL

rockstarsgirl
07-11-2008, 02:41 AM
Yep, they are. I have a whole sample book of them. In all the colors of the rainbow. Some are completely see through and some are thicker and all satin-y.

rockstarsgirl
07-16-2008, 04:47 AM
I will be sending out the groups that are complete today

amyfaerie
07-16-2008, 09:18 AM
i'll PM you . . . I'd love to play on a sheer group AND a paint-chip group!

amyfaerie
07-16-2008, 09:25 AM
i've also PMed inkadinkado, trying to coax her into signing up with me!

rockstarsgirl
07-16-2008, 02:32 PM
WOOT! The more the merrier. You are all signed up!

sashibala
07-16-2008, 03:23 PM
I'd love to sign up for this (2 of each category please, a mix of 2nd or 3rd place if possible)!

I've never been in a RR before, though, so my apologies for any confusion I may have. :) My understanding is Nicole sends out the base to player #2, player #2 does some stuff to it and sends it to player #3 who finishes it and sends it backto Nicole, right? Or am I way off?

amyfaerie
07-16-2008, 03:43 PM
you are correct, sashi! and, if you're player #3, just keep one of the three cards for yourself, 'cause they're done! :cute:

rockstarsgirl
07-16-2008, 07:14 PM
Yep, yep....these are super fun. Thanks for joining and thanks amy for explaining. I'll add you right now sashibala

MissKoolAid
07-16-2008, 11:50 PM
Ok, I've been watching this thread and I think it's time I join the fun. I'll take a #3 spot in Fabric and #2 spot in Wallpaper please.

rockstarsgirl
07-16-2008, 11:50 PM
Ok, sounds good! You are all signed up!

sashibala
07-16-2008, 11:53 PM
Thank you, Amyfaerie! I get it now. :D

And thank you, Rockstarsgirl, for adding me. This should be fun! :jiggy:

rockstarsgirl
07-16-2008, 11:56 PM
More groups will be going out in the morning. I'm off to get everything set (got a steal on 8.5x11 paper so I'm printing more labels).

Mysia
07-17-2008, 12:09 AM
Can't wait to get the cards! :D

rockstarsgirl
07-17-2008, 12:16 AM
I forgot 2 things I wanted to say before people got started:

1. The fabric cards will have backings included in the envie, but because I din't know if you all wanted to sew on them or what have you, I have not attached them.

2. Please feel free to turn the cards in which ever orientation you'd like. I'm putting the backs on in a certain way, but that's only because I have to make a decision. Feel free to go wild!

rockstarsgirl
07-29-2008, 12:42 AM
Everything went out at the same time as Sashi's or a day or 2 after so lots of people should have their goodies. I'll check around here to make sure I didn't forget anything (my brain has been more adeled then usual). Thanks for the update, though and if they aren't there in the next couple days, I'll send out another set.

MissKoolAid
07-29-2008, 02:30 PM
Wallpaper #5 did indeed arrive today! I'll work on them this week.

rockstarsgirl
07-29-2008, 02:37 PM
YAY!!

NatalieJean
08-02-2008, 01:02 PM
Took me a minute to figure out, but it sounds fun! Put me down for a counter top and a wallpaper, please. :)

Ibus

I got Wallpaper 4 from Sashibala today. I know what I want to do, but it will take a bit of thought and experimenting to get it right!.

MissKoolAid
08-02-2008, 10:35 PM
My part is done on Wallpaper #5. I'm sending to ScramperSue on Monday.

MissKoolAid

Couch #3 has arrived. So pretty... This will be my first fabric ATC so I'll have to really think about it before making something final. I love what Sashibala has added to them!

sashibala
08-04-2008, 12:09 PM
MissKoolAid, those were my first fabric ATCs, too, so I'm glad you like what I did! :spinny:

rockstarsgirl

YAY! Glad things are going well. Thanks for the updates!!

kysunflower
08-08-2008, 07:52 AM
any updates, I was wondering about this since we haven't heard anything from anyone.

rockstarsgirl
08-10-2008, 01:00 AM
Sometimes you don't hear about anything until they come all the way back around lol.

Mysia
08-10-2008, 06:53 AM
Update: I have finished my cards and be mailing them out on Monday!

MissKoolAid
08-11-2008, 10:30 PM
I've done my part on the Couch #3 group which I call Coffee Love. Just one thing before I get ready to send the 2 back to Nicole: I was thinking of attaching the fabric to the backing with eyelets, would that be OK with you too (Nicole and Sarrah) or do you want to do your own thing for that? Let me know and I'll do what needs to be done.

rockstarsgirl
08-11-2008, 10:52 PM
That sounds wonderful! I just wanted to leave them separate until the last person got them in case you wanted to do stitching. That's a great idea for putting them together!!

rockstarsgirl
08-11-2008, 10:52 PM
Thanks for the update, Mysia!

08-12-2008, 11:41 PM
Hey, ladies. If ScamperSue is the #3 person in your group and you haven't sent the cards out. Please don't send them. PM and I will put someone new in the 3rd place. If you have already sent out the cards, please PM me and let me know the approximate date they were sent to her, thanks!! If you are expecting cards from ScramperSue and don't get them in the next 5-7 days, please let me know. Thanks!

sashibala
08-12-2008, 11:59 PM
MissKoolAid, I love what you added! Feel free to attach them to backs in any way you see fit. :yes:

kysunflower
08-13-2008, 09:57 AM
I am in paint chips #2 3rd player, Sue is 2nd, and I have never recieved anything from her.
Which gives me an idea, next time I host a RR swap, there will be a time limit for keeping a set and getting it back in the mail.

I received MissKoolAid and Sashi's card today! Absolutely beautiful. Sashi, I'll send yours when I send the rock n roll swap

rockstarsgirl
08-27-2008, 11:56 PM
I know that some people have not received their cards. I have been holding some of them back because they were cards that were in a questionable state due to their being in the hands of a member who was banned. I will be doing some reordering and all the cards will be sent out by Tuesday. Thanks so much for the understanding. This includes #2 people who haven't received cards as well as people who were #3 in groups where ScramperSue was member #2. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to PM me. Thanks

sashibala

I also received the paint chip cards from Amyfaerie but will not get to do anything with them until next week.

You were there for me and I'll be there for you! Put me down for 3 different spots where you need someone. Would you be willing to go the extra mile to PM me with the info after you decide where you need me?

Now, my own plea: I have 2 more spots in my VERY FIRST Swap: In My Next Life! Reborn! (I've taken it over.) Anybody want to join. It's an easy peasy swap.:yes:

sashibala
09-08-2008, 01:05 AM
I added a few things to Paintchips #6.... not too much, though, because I really liked what AmyFaerie had already done and didn't want to take too much away from that. I hope they're okay.

Also, sorry for the bad scan. The flowers made it a bit tough to scan.
