Wonderful examples
of Assemblages made

Facebook Page

So please do go check
out their Facebook Page

for this Month's ATC Swap!!!

Woo Hoo!!!

See! I've already been playing!

The Graphics Kit
Teacup Tricksters

It's certainly put me
into the Spirit!

So here we go!!!
Details on 
How to Enter! 
( If you dare....bwhaaaa!)

Thought you'd like to get a little
Art Going for the upcoming
and to 
Hidden Vintage Studio's 
New Kit

So this time round
the ATC Swap Theme is
Although if you'd like to 
use any of 
Hidden Vintage Studio's
Kits in making your ATC's
that would be Great too!!!

In this ATC Swap
you'll be making
3   ATC's
2 ATC's will be Traded with
2 other ATC Artists in the Swap.
And 1 ATC will be Traded with me!

I will start a Photo Album
on my Facebook Page
Denise Phillips
to Highlight all of your ATC's
as I receive them so we all
can have a boo!!! (grin).

As it is August 15th Today
I'll be running the ATC Swap
to the 
Deadline of 
Thursday September 12th, 2013
with the 
Announcement of
the Winner of the 
$25 Gift Certificate to
Hidden Vintage Studio
Friday, September 13th!!

LOL! How appropriate!
Friday the 13th!!! 

To Enter in the ATC Swap
and Gift Certificate Drawing
Please send a 
$5.00 PayPal 'Gift' Invoice
for Return Postage and Handling
Birdnuts Mixed Media

I will be limiting to only
20 ATC Artists in this months
ATC Swap
so if you aren't able to participate
after Entering please let me know
asap so I may let another Artist
I will gladly refund your 
Return Postage and Handling 
within the first 2 weeks of the Swap
but after that there will not be
a refund.
( I have found some to want a refund after finding
out they were not the Winner for the Drawing
so this seems to be the best way to stop that issue).

Because I am up in Canada, and
many of you are Global
you need at least 2 weeks from the
time you mail your 3 sets of
Halloween ATC's to me to get them
to me in time for the Deadline...
All Entries no matter where you are
mailing from should be in the Post
by no later than 
September 2nd, 2013

And if possible please
try to make your ATC's
as easy to put into a Standard
Sized Envelope to save on
mailing costs, anything oversized
will cost twice as much in returning.
(Thanks to the Canadian Postal Service!)
Much appreciated.

So there you go!
So get your Entries in
while there's room with
only 20 Artists Playing!
And go forth and get those
Halloween ATC's Made!!!

Big Thanks to 
Hidden Vintage Studio!

Thanks All!!!

I will not be able to join this ATC swap. I belong to a group called The Transit Traders ATC Group. Our meeting is on Sept 14 and I have to have 20 new ATC's by then to trade. We are also having a show at the Mosaic Cafe
opening Sept 31st and running through the month of October! I am excited to be a part of it! We are doing 3 ATC's that are going in 5x7 inch frames. I will be looking forward to the next ATC swap you have!

How many ATC'S are in a 'set'? How much should I be sending you for postage via Paypal? I'd like to take part but need to know those two details before committing :-)

MONICA said...

You know I'm question about it chicka...can't wait.

Florance Simpson said...

Ok...I'll send the Paypal postage money tomorrow...but being a newbie to ATC swaps I still don't know how many ATC's are in a set?

Glenda said...

I'll be in, BUT I don't like Halloween, never bought up with it in NZ and I'm not a fan of anything "eerky" But I will be good and do something along the teacup lines. Will paypal money over weekend. Thanks again for running these swaps.
