    Trash To Treasure 15, due March 15, 2020

    Swap Due Date – March 15, 2020
    Number of Cards - 5 for 5
    Number of participants - 20
    Media- mixed media collage

    THE SWAP IS FULL! YAY!

    Welcome to the FIFTEENTH Trash to Treasure swap! WOW!

    Swap Requirements:

    This swap is a mixed media collage challenge to create ATCs from trash items which I will provide. You must use at least 3 trash items on each card. Be willing to think outside the box and use items in different and new ways. Each envelope will have the same types of items. Some items are identical for all players. But some items are of the same type but slightly different.

    This is a no withdrawal swap, while you won’t know what is in the envelope until you receive it, if you request and receive an envelope you are required to complete the swap. No cards, no communication may result in neutral iTrader.

    PM me with your mailing address, so I can send out your trash items.

    Swap is 5 for 5 cards. Host cards are not required, but will be treasured if you should choose to send one.

    Each card must be 2.5" x 3.5" inches and on a sturdy base. You may have curved edges or shaped corners if you wish, but no coins or other unusual shapes. Cards must be protected in sleeves. If you cannot obtain sleeves a cut up card page or small baggie is acceptable.

    You must use at least three trash items per card. As always, use can be more than attaching the item, you can alter any item. You may shred it, singe it, or glue it mosaic style if you like. You can rip it, paint it, turn it around backwards, modify it. But you must use it somehow.

    We all have different skills so please send work you are proud of. While I can’t guarantee media, I will do my best to swap effort for effort.

    All cards need to be labeled with your real name, and your AFA username, so others can leave you their thanks via YouRock!s. Also, you must list on the back what trash items you used.

    TO SIGN UP

    Post to the thread to sign up. State that you have read all the details and that you are aware that this is a no withdrawal swap.

    Send me a private message with your mailing address. I will mail you an envelope of trash.

    Once you have messaged me your address, there is no withdrawal.

    POSTING TO THE THREAD

    ~Please post to the thread when you have received your trash items.
    ~We all love seeing creations along the way. If possible, please post your cards in the thread and list which trash items you have used.
    ~Please post to the thread when you have mailed your finished cards to me.

    MAILING YOUR CARDS

    ~Send each card in its own ATC sleeve.
    ~Please spread and lightly tape cards inside the envelope, as flat and even as possible. Or use a cut up card holder page.
    ~Send a label with your name and address legibly printed on it. I can provide envelopes.
    ~US Players: Send 2 forever stamps. One to reimburse me for the cost of mailing you the trash envelope and one for mailing your returns to you. I will take care of any additional postage if necessary.
    ~International Players, please include $2 U.S. OR 2 Global Forever stamps, covering my initial mailing to you and your returns mailing later. I will take care of any additional postage if necessary.
    ~I live in Alabama. Please be aware of the mailing time from your location to me and to mail your cards in time for me to receive them by the due date. Late cards will be returned to sender and a neutral iTrader given.

    AFTER YOUR RETURN CARDS ARE RECEIVED

    When you receive your returns, please post in the swap thread that you have received them. Don’t forget to leave an iTrader for me and You Rocks! to the other artists. It is always nice to tell the player which card you received too.

    Any questions? PM me or post it to the thread as others may have the same question but are too shy to speak up.

    Who wants to play?

    Please, please, please add me. I'm assuming you have my address, since I just received some coins from you not that long ago. Let me know if you do need it.
    I did read through and will not withdraw. I'm not sure if I missed how many trash items per card (and are we allowed to alter said trash items?).
    Thanks!

    Welcome, prex! Yes, I do have your address. Three items per card, and you can alter them or use them in any way you choose, just as long as you list what you used on the back of your cards.

    How many items do we have to use on each card? Lurking with intent ...

    You are the 2nd person to ask me that, and I was sure I had put it in the instructions, but I just checked and for some reason, what I had thought I had submitted is not there, so I am going to update it. I need to let all those who have already signed up know that the instructions have changed (to what I wanted it to say originally). So hopefully, none of them will want to change their minds.
