    Collage House (not house shaped), Due Date March 16th

    Swap Due Date: March 16th
    Signup/Withdraw: March 1st
    Number of Cards: 3-3
    Number of Participants: 20

    One of my favorite swaps was the collage house. It's been several years and I've decided, let's do another. As this is only my second swap the limit has to be 20. Hopefully it will fill up.

    Swap Info:
    This swap is for collage/paper piecing only. You will make three cards and get back three cards. Your card must have a collaged house as it's focal point w/ a collaged background. No cutout house pics and no plain backgrounds.

    Swap Rules:
    ~ All cards are to be 2.5X3.5
    ~ No bulky embellishments.
    ~ Back your card w/ something stiff.
    ~ On the back include your real name, user name, location and any other info you choose.

    Mailing Info:
    ~ Put your cards in a protective sleeve or something similar for protection.
    ~ PM me for my address when you're about ready to mail.
    ~ US: Include a stamped, self addressed envelope w/ your user name on the back.
    ~ International: Include a US intntl stamp (if you have one) or a US dollar and an address label. I'll supply your envelope.
    ~ Be sure to allow enough time when mailing for your cards to arrive to me on time.

    Other Info:
    ~ I will leave I-traders when your cards arrive.
    ~ Don't forget to leave me (host) an I-trader when you get your cards back.
    ~ Post to the thread and/or leave rep points when you receive your returns so that folks can know who got their cards.

    Some examples can be seen in post#6.
    Happy creating and I can't wait to see what everyone makes!

    I'd like to play. I have tons of masterboards (gelliprinted backgrounds) that I can play with for this swap. Would you please sign me up? This sounds like fun.

    Yes, an example would better show what you are looking for.

    Sign me add anyway. I think this swap will fill up fast.

    Thanks everyone for signing up!

    Here're some examples. I was waiting for the swap to get posted before I put them up. The first four cards are from a swap I hosted somewhere else. The second four are from a swap I played in here. All are cards I rcvd, not made. Hope the pics help to inspire everyone.

    I was inspired, so I got out my masterboards last night and worked these up! I used Sharpie to help the separate pieces stand out, but all the layers are collaged from the masterboards (including the backgrounds). 3 houses and a city skyrise (which can be your hostess card if you prefer.)

    Looking forward to see what others come up with!

    *BUMP*

    Anyone else interested? I know it's only been a few days but I get discouraged when I see the thread inactive. Maybe because I haven't hosted enough swaps yet. Maybe because everyone is doing the a-thon right now. Whichever, come on out and play, you'll have a good time! The houses are so fun to create and I'm sure you'll be happy w/ your returns.

    I just noticed the swap and joined right away. I bet some of our regulars haven't checked the OPEN swaps due to the all the holidays. I am sure this will fill up with a waiting list.

    I was going to just lurk, but since you're only taking 20 folks I'd better go ahead and sign up! Sounds like tons of fun!
    Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
