Swap Details

This swap is for all skill levels!

We will be swapping

  • Three masterboards
  • And one small item made with at least one masterboard element

Masterboards should be a minimum of 5 1/2" squared. The small item can be an ATC, altered tag, greeting card, etc. A “small” can be measured by time (2 or less hours), by physical size (Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks), or by price ($10 or less)

Shipping should be low cost for this swap. Please check the weight and/or take it to a post office to be sure it has enough postage. Tracking numbers will not be required for this swap but you should be willing to resend if something goes missing. If you do get a tracking number please share it with Reinikka and your swap partner. You will not have to resend if you have a tracking number. If you want to ensure you get a tracking number you can use a padded envelope or pad the inside to make the package eligible for tracking.

All skill levels and masterboard types are welcome but please do your best to send something you would be happy receiving :heart: Share your favorite masterboard projects, ask questions, and participate in the swap thread. Please post at least once/week to check-in so I know you haven’t forgotten us :wink: I will be keeping track of communication & participation. We have four weeks for crafting, which should be plenty of time, but if you think you will be late, send me and your partner a message to let us know.

You know I love me some masterboards, but I’m gonna have to skip (Imsosorrypleasedonthateme) this swap because there are just too many other swaps I want to do too. But, if anyone ever wants to personal swap masterboards with me or @geekybookworm, we’d most likely be up for it.

@Reinikka I know you’ll be an AMAZING host here on LC!

Have fun and get messy you all!

Ok, sent in my Q. I was playing with paint & stencils on the front porch last week, but I think I need to find space inside where it’s not so hot & icky.

Oh this is s tough choice. I’m still so new to master boards and would definitely have swap anxiety here. But, sometimes you’ve just got to get out there… I’ll think on it

As someone who just made her first masterboard last weekend, I say jump on in! I think masterboards are difficult to do wrong or screw up because you can always add more layers!

No anxiety allowed! Masterboards are de-stressors :wink: You’ll be safe here, I promise! :grin:

That’s the right thinking! :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:


:tada: I’m off to review questionnaires! :tada:

Masterboards are made for people of all skill levels because you seriously cannot make a bad masterboard. Why’s that? Because if you think it’s bad, just add more paint and keep on going! Plus, you can use it cut up and as backgrounds for so many things!

I’m having so much FOMO about missing this swap, but I’m literally waiting for several more to start sign ups.

Anyway, if you think you can’t, know that you CAN!
