    Talking Envie Addicts Unite! April

    *****************************************New Rules!**********************************************

    I'm an Envie Addict! Hopefully, there are more of you out there! What? You're a newb? What's an Envie you say? If you don't already know, Envies are altered envelopes. They can be drawn on, painted on, upcycled, collage and mix media up! Sky's the limit. Getting personal mail is nice, but getting a mini traveling museum is the best! We also allow postcards!
    So here's what I propose, let's get a good sized group going for a monthly swap. It would be a nice way to get our fix of envies on a regular basis. Let's share our ideas, links to inspiration, and get to know each other as artist.

    How the NEW sign up works:

    First, I will post a new thread like normal. For the first week I will be accepting players. Players have the 1st thru 7th of the month to come to the thread and say, "I wanna play." Once you join, there is no withdrawing.

    Next, I will make up a partner's list and post it on the 8th or the 9th of the month. Once I have the player's list up, I will send everyone my usual monthly update via PM.

    My suggested mail out date would be the 15th, but for the most part your Envie needs to be in the hands of your partner by the last day of the month. If anything is late, there is a little forgiveness if you are communicating with your partner.

    In the past, we've had a lot of peeps that flaked on their trade. Itrader points will now play a big part in who plays in E.A.U. If you had a wonderful experience, fabulous! Leave positive points. If you had a hiccup, but your not too bent outta shape about it, leave a neutral point. If you had a total "flaker" and your experience was horrible...well then you might want to think about a negative point. (Consider yourself warned.)

    How will the points help us? I figure it this way. If you had a neutral point as a result of playing in EAU, you will be given a second chance, but a second one in a row will be considered a negative point. If you've had a negative point within 3 months no matter where you were playing, you cannot participate.


    On a lighter note, we celebrate birthdays! When you sign up and it happens to be your birthday month say, "I wanna play and I'm celebrating a birthday!" Other player's just might send ya some happy mail. ...just be sure to leave a YouRock point to those that RAK you.

    Naked! Is how we send our Envies...as is. However, there has been times that mail has gone missing. If you feel that your Envie might find the same fate, you can send it, within a plain envelope. But! ... your art has to be dressed up with faux postage and addresses.

    Stuff, your Envie's with something sturdy like cereal boxes or junk mail. Send it out, but don't post a pic at AFA until you hear that your partner has received it. Save the surprise for them. Once, you get word that they have it, share it all over the place. We're nosey! We wanna see too!

    Size Rules: Your Envie has to be a minimum of 3 5/8 X 6 1/2 inches. (Small Business Envelope) ...and up...

    Hello Addicts! My share today is something that I bought on my trip. I got it at Michael's....Washington stores have a better selection than my store here in Roseville...Anyhoot, it's the Heidi Swapp Rolo Punch.



    Up until now I was using the small black punch that you get at an office store. Those are great, but if you want something that can punch thicker papers, catch your debris and center your punch....this one is for you!



    If you look at the spot where you place your card, there are guide lines that you center your card on....no more guess work. Heidi also has die cutters...Her dies make tall cards with big tabs at the top....but still keeping within the 4in width. If you don't want to do all of the work...she also sells holders and pre-made cards to embellish.

    The punch, I think, was originally $14-15 dollars....it was on sale. I got it for ten...but if you have a coupon on a non sale day...you could get it for cheaper.

    I think I might want to play! Can you explain the envies to me a little better? Do I send a decorated envelope to my partner - AS IS - or do I put the decorated envelope in a blank envelope and send it that way?

    Or I can send a decorated post card... is that an option?

    Sorry - confused wannabee looking for claritee...

    You will send an envelope that you have art'ed up to your partner. We have started to accept postcards too. It's up to you which you would like to send. They are to be sent "Naked" as is....unless you think it's going some where that you think it will not make it "naked." If you send it in a protective envelope...you still have to put an addy and fake stamps on your art.
