One for One Card Swap Australia - August 2016


I had so much fun last time I hosted one of these swaps so it is time to hold another one. Brian King organises the same thing in the US and I thought it would be nice to hold one for the aussies.

You just make one card and mail it to me with a self-addressed, stamped envelope. I will then send you another card from what could be a random stranger! It is going to be so much fun! I know you are all going to love it.

Here’s how it works:

You mail the following to me:
a handmade card standard size designed by YOU,  no CASEing for this swap. Please make every effort to use products from the current Stampin’ Up! catalogues.
a self-addressed (that means your address), stamped envelope (that means put enough postage on the envelope).
Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators and non-demonstrators can both play along!
THEME: Positive Encouragement - Thank you, You rock, You're awesome, thinking of you, congratulations etc.

These days it is nice to send a card just because - because it can encourage someone and build them up when they might be feeling a bit meh or even depressed. A handmade card and happy mail can make a big difference and it feels so good to receive but also to give that positive encouragement to others.

Please don’t write on the inside of your card so that the recipient can use it (if they choose to), but feel free to stamp your name on the back. I will gather the cards I receive and will mix them up and mail them out so that everyone who sends me a card will receive a card in return. How much fun is that!

I must limit participation to one card per person and to only Australian residents.

Mail your card and stamped, return envelope to:

Kylie Bertucci
78 Latham Street
Werribee VIC 3030

Please mail them as soon as you can – but make sure they arrive by Monday, August 22nd – that’s about THREE weeks away. That’s when I will sort them and then mail them out. I will also include photos of some of the cards on my blog (giving proper credit to the creator, of course).

I know that you are going to get some awesome feedback on your cards and it will be so much fun to see them all on my blog in coming weeks.

Who’s in? Email me if you have any questions kyliebertucci@me.com. Let me know what you think of this idea and if you are excited about it - because I know that I am! Please tell your friends and Stampin' Up!® team members as the more that play along - the more fun it will be.

Thanks so much for your continued support of my blog and creations. I receive so many lovely cards and messaged and it warms my heart. Being encouraging to one another is so important these days as it is sadly lacking. Thank you for doing your part in making a difference in other peoples lives by your kind, encouraging words and actions.
