    Haunted Houses - House Shaped ATCs, Mixed Media Collage Only, due October 20, 2017

    Signup/Withdraw Date: October 20, 2017
    Number of ATCs: 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
    Number of Participants: Unlimited

    HAUNTED HOUSES - House Shaped ATC Swap – Mixed Media Collage only, due October 20, 2017



    RETURNS MAILED 10/27



    This ATC SWAP is for a HOUSE SHAPE with a HAUNTED theme. This means Haunted Houses, Ghostly Houses, Spooky Houses, Scary Houses, Witches' Houses. But you need a house-shaped design.

    As you create your little HOUSES, use your imagination and be creative! You can use any combination of colors, and inhabitants. Draw or paint. If you wish, add postage stamps, rubber stamping, magazine images, scrapbook papers. You decide!


    * This is a 3 for 3 or 6 for 6 card trade. Make 3 or 6 cards and receive the same number back.

    * ALL mediums and techniques are welcome. Please make sure you add some depth to your cards, whatever style you choose. Your mediums can include, but are not limited to: paper, tissue paper, crayon, acrylic, watercolor, gel pens, colored pencil, rubber stamping, ink, newspaper clippings, magazine clippings, etc. Please do not take an image, cut it out, glue it onto cardstock, and call it done. Color the background. Add some texture. Add more than one image. Make the ATC YOUR CREATION! I do ask that you send in your best work. Something you would not be disappointed in receiving if it was sent to you.

    * Please sign up by posting to this thread. I will acknowledge you and add your user name to the list below.

    * ONLY ATCs allowed. No APCs accepted.

    * All ATCs must be a cut out HOUSE SHAPE that is 2.5” wide x 3.5” tall. And remember they should be on sturdy cardstock, All cards need to be sturdy enough to earn the name “card” (no floppy or flimsy paper) Each completed atc should be in an individual vinyl sleeve for added protection.

    * Just as important, check for cards that are too thick. Each card must still be capable of fitting into the standard ATC sleeve. If your ATC will not fit into an ATC sleeve, it is too bulky.

    * Please put the Swap name and your Username on the back of all cards. And please write clearly on everything! We can't give you itrades and/or You Rock! points if we don't know who you are.

    * Please confirm there is enough postage on the envelope.

    * If you are unsure about mailing ATCs, or just may want to pick up some good tips for shipping, here is a great link.
    http://atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=909

    * If you are inside the U.S., please include a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope 4 by 9 1/2 inches, with 49 cents postage, or one "Forever" stamp if trading 3 cards; or one forever and one 21 cent stamp if trading 6 cards, OR if your cards are extra heavy or extra bulky (or 2 forever stamps if that is easier).

    * International participants, if you have U.S. funds, or U.S. postage, it is greatly appreciated. However, since many of you do not have access to U.S. stamps, I will cover your postage. Please include a self addressed envelope 4 by 9 1/2 inches (10 x 28 cm), or if you do not have the correct size envelope, please include a large mailing label with your address and I will provide the envelope.

    * I apologize for being so demanding about the envelope size, but the postal rates in the US charge extra for thickness. When cards are stacked, or overlapped, in (a smaller) envelope, it almost always costs more to mail. If you send me a small envy, the cards get stacked. When I use the 4 inch by 9 1/2 inch business size envelopes, I can spread the cards over the area, making a THIN package, and only pay for basic (minimum) postage.

    * Cards are due IN MY HANDS by October 20, 2017. Returns will be mailed promptly. Late cards will be returned, as it is unfair to those participants who always have their cards in on time, and often early.

    * A hostie card in this theme is appreciated but not at all expected!

    * Thank you for considering this swap! If you have my address from previous swaps, it hasn't changed. If you are new, or have not been in one of my swaps for a while, please ask for my address when you are ready to mail.

    * Above all ~Have fun!!!

    Talking Great minds think alike!! :)

    What a quinky dink Vicki Z! This afternoon, I finished your haunted house atc for the MMH thread and it inspired me to host another house-shaped swap. I was just posting it now and saw your swap! Mine is for SCHOOLHOUSES and due Sept 29th, so hopefully we'll both get some excitement going for these super fun house shaped atcs!
    I would love to participate in your swap and hope you'll consider mine too!
    Smiles, Pam

    That is just tooooo funny.
    I knew you had hosted 3 house-shaped swaps, and I joined the most recent one, but when I checked open swaps, you didn't have anything out there, so I went for it.
    Thanks for not being upset.

    I think having two house-shaped swaps should be good for both of us.
    Thank you for joining mine -- I am on my way to sign up for yours.

    There is also a SCHOOLHOUSES - House Shaped ATC swap in addition to this HAUNTEDHOUSES - House Shaped ATC swap.

    To assure you don't get the two (similar) swaps confused with each other, I strongly suggest you sign up for BOTH swaps

    Of course you can play, Jaxsmom.
    Please read the information in the first post for details on International mailing.

    I cave received mail from the U.K. in 3-5 days, but I recommend allowing 2 weeks to assure your treasures reach me by due date.

    I signed you up.

    OOh, me, please, Vicki. I was just thinking that Hallowe'en swaps should be starting up soon, and I only have a few houses in my collection.
