you are welcome behappy

04-21-2009, 04:54 PM
Hello, I am an absolute newbie to the site and chunky pages but really think it could be my thing! A couple of q's, does each page made for a swap have to be different or do you send 4 (or 8 etc) pages that are the same? what is the best material to use as the base, is cardstock usually ok or do people use chipboard or mount board? is it always that the left side of the chunky is blank? thanks a bunch! :huh:

04-22-2009, 03:44 PM
welcome - you can do what you want - different or the same, you must use thick card stock as they need to be really firm and you do leave the left side empty - i usually use mountboard type card as the firmer the better

04-23-2009, 06:23 PM
Thanks for your advice janice!

04-25-2009, 04:37 AM
hope you are all ok out there - please pm when you need my addres - still got plenty of time - post seems to be good at the moment

04-27-2009, 03:11 AM

I love hearts and flowers and have been working on ideas for my chunky pages.
here is my first one. I plan to do the rest tonight and tomorrow....hopefully providing time allows me. I'll have even more time to fill up as of wednesday. My husband is going to be away for 2 weeks with his job and will need my art time to keep me busy while he is away. You know how i'll be spending my evenings lol .. in front over the tv with art supplies all over the floor ha ha

04-27-2009, 11:33 PM
is the swap 4/4 or can we make extra pages. Ive seen some chunky page swaps that aLLOW UP TO 8 cards ? please let me know. thanks so much acacia.rose

Rain Pebble
04-28-2009, 01:03 AM
So after all ideas. I am keeping a couple that ive made but
making some others that i like more :)

04-28-2009, 04:36 AM
it is up to you but if you make more you will have to double the postage!!!!!!!!!!

Rain Pebble
04-28-2009, 10:47 AM
So you say double the postage. How much will that be ?
Ive taken part in numerous other chunky swaps and to send 8 pages. doesnt cost anymore than 5.00

04-28-2009, 12:48 PM
send 5 then - postage is always dear here in the Uk - 3 fabric atcs cost me 2 dollars - I'l go with what you send

04-30-2009, 02:32 AM
It took me a few days, but I finally managed to get my chunkies in the mail today. ;)Hope they arrive safely.
