Non Stampin Up Images Swap

Hello Fellow Stampers,

I am interested in Hosting a Non Stampin Up Image Swap, and I am wondering if there is any interest from other bloggers/stampers in Australia to join in. Most of us buy or have bought stamps from other sources and a lot of the time they just sit in the draw and collect dust, (you can only use them so many times for family before they know what image to expect each Birthday etc.), so if you would like to spread them around and obtain some new images read on.

I would like to keep numbers down to between 10 to 20 spots for my first swaps, depending on the interest. I have listed a few requirements, so everyone knows what to do and expect with the swaps. You may take up to 2 places in any swaps, but this will also depend on the response.

Images are to be stamped with a permanent ink like Stazon Black or Black pigment ink and embossed so they can be coloured with confidence. Images would need to be stamped so they are clean and crisp and perfectly formed, preferably on a good quality white card.

Images are to be at least 2" x 2" or (5 x 5cm) minimum. Anything smaller would need to be stamped twice for each participant in the swap.

If you have a Cuttlebug, or similar machine and Nestabilities they can be used to cut card shape before or after stamping, it's up to you.

Once swap is closed and there are enough participants, I would make a deadline of 1-2weeks for you to get your images to me so they could all be distributed back to you in a timely manner.

A self addressed and stamped envelope big enough for swaps would also need to be enclosed for return postage back to you.

So if you are interested contact me on my email address: and let me know which of the following swaps you would be interested in. Also provide details about the image and the stamps maker, name, number, approx. size that you wish to swap and your details:

1. Easter
2. Girls up to 18
3. Boys up to 18

OK, If I think of any other requirement's I will post them to this Post. Hope to hear from you and Happy Swapping!!
