Card Kit Divas - Facebook Swap group

Hello Friends,

 The feedback I have received from the Address Tag swap, has been great! I am so happy that everyone enjoyed receiving their tags. If I could ask a favor? If you have received your tags, please put a comment on the address tag post here on my blog. Just trying to keep up on who has received so far.

 Over the weekend, we were treated to a Ustream from the lovely Julia, sharing her Secret Sister Swap box from Robin. So many beautiful things, Robin did an awesome job! We all were chatting as we do, and Julia mentioned it would be fun to have a card kit swap. So, we created a facebook group for just that. It is a secret group, so if you want to be in the swap, it is a monthly commitment until the end of the year. You have to be invited to the group. We are taking signups until 4/15/16. Just let Julia or I know and we will add you.

 Here are the basics:

 A2 size card, you make one kit per participant each month. We recommend you make a card design for the theme of the month, take a picture of it, and upload it to your gallery on the group. This way when the swappers receive your card kit, they can have a point of reference for what you designed.

 Card Kits need to be mailed to me to be received by the end of each month. I will swap them out and mail back to be received by the 15th of the following month.

 If your card design, contains die cuts, you should include them in the kit. Likewise for stamped images. Basically, the recipient, should only need a basic class kit to complete, i.e. paper trimmer, ruler, adhesive, scissors, foam dots etc.

 If you are international, please join us! I will send you a PayPal invoice for your postage on a monthly basis. Domestic folks, please include the self addressed Stamped Envelope with your monthly submission. Postage should be the same amount to return to you plus $1.00.

 Here is my address:

 Laurel DeViney
 4 Hartford Drive
 Egg Harbor Township, NJ 08234 USA

 Here are the monthly themes:

 April: Birthday

 May: Thinking of you/Get Well


 July: Christmas

 August: Funny

 September: Sympathy

 October: Thank you/ Gratitude

 November: Friendship

 December: Congratulations

 Please design a card to suit the theme. It can be anything within the theme, get creative! Then create a card kit for each swap participant.

 If you would like to be added to the group, please send me your Facebook Name, and I will add you! Please send requests to Please include your contact details: e-mail, snail mail address, international- proper PayPal e-mail address.
