Are you ready for a new swap filled with paper-y goodness? Let’s use some of that paper we all received earlier this year and put all of our craft/art classes to good use!

Let’s swap 5 embellishments to be used in your journal or to add to greeting cards or happy mail. You can send in a regular envelope with one or two stamps but please agree that if your envelope goes missing, you will be asked to resend. I personally like to use a bubble envelope to get tracking. That’s me and that is not a requirement.

Clusters, journal cards, paper dolls, stenciled birds, hands or ?
Paper sample books or mini journals to add to an existing journal
Corner tuck spots or other pockets or envelopes to add into a journal
Snippet or scrap roll
Sewn elements (a la Tim Holtz)
Crowns, hats or hearts to add to photos or magazine images
Botanical fodder hand made/painted to add to journals or as decorations for envelopes or greeting cards
Altered tickets or ATCs or ATCoins to add to journals
Embellishments made with paint chip cards, book text or newspaper
Inchies, twinchies, or rinchies
Altered, decorated tags
Paper mosaic
Woven paper
Master boards or something made with master boards
Scrap monsters or painted fish or collaged fruit or whatever you can imagine!

It’s so fun to read questionnaires - I always include that I do not love pink, peach or salmon as main colors. And some folks LOVE pink and add that to their q’s. The more we get together, the happier we’ll be…

Working on my q! My brain is stuck in ATC swap mode, where my themes are probably too specific for this :laughing: . What are people listing as themes(/lemme steal your themes)?


I think folks list general or broad themes like universe/galaxy, nature, or art. List what you want - I think you might be surprised by the clever peeps here

here’s what I put:

I don’t necessarily need a theme but if you prefer to craft to a theme here are some suggestion: alice in wonderland (not disney), sci-fi, fae, outer space, coffee, vintage, steampunk, upcycled


OMG, I am just seeing this and will fill out my form tonight. I obviously need more paper embellishments in my life!
