The Great, Big Card Swap

"Send a card! See them all! Get one back!"

The GREAT, BIG Card Swap ~
It's sounds simple because it is! You create a regular full-size card for the monthly theme. Include $1 to cover return postage and a sticky note message inside. (I'll provide the return envelopes.) If you're sending ahead for the next month's theme, make sure to write the month on the envelope so I know to hold it for that month.

Upcoming Themes:
  • June 2024: Birthday
    • Swap Showcase Videos: June 11 & 25
    • Optional: Send an extra birthday card to be given to my mom, Susan LaCroix as she celebrates her 70th birthday on June 29.
  • July 2024: Summer

Previous Monthly Themes: January 2023: Kids, February 2023: Circles, March 2023: Black & White with a Pop of Color, April 2023: Weather (Sunshine, Rain, Rainbows), May 2023: Things with Wings, June 2023: NEW Stampin' Up! Catalog --OR-- Anything Goes, July 2023: Birthday, August 2023: Fun Folds, September 2023: Trees, October 2023: Thank You, November 2023: Winter Holidays, December 2023: Feeling Blue, January 2024: Friendship, February 2024: BIG; March 2024: Something Old, Something New, April 2024: Three; May 2024: Hello, Goodbye

I will showcase all of the cards in a video so you can see what everyone else created and then I'll send them back! Everyone who sends a card will get one back!
  • Send ONE Full Size Card
  • Write the month on the the envelope if sending for a future theme.
  • Include $1 to cover return postage & envelopes. (Please do NOT include custom envelopes with your card.)
  • Don't write inside! Include a sticky note or loose paper to say hello.

Frequently Asked Questions:
  • Who can participate in this swap? EVERYONE! This swap is open to all stampers, including Stampin' Up! demonstrators.
  • Can I use retired or non-Stampin' Up! products? Yes! I want EVERYONE to participate regardless of their paper-crafting collection! I will sort cards before swapping so that stampers who do use current Stampin' Up! product will get cards with current Stampin' Up! product in return.
  • Can I send more than one card? Please limit to one swap card per person per month.
  • Can I sign the back of my card? Yes! Please leave the inside blank so the person who receives your card can send it on and bless someone else. But feel free to include your usual maker marking on the back.
  • What happens if my card doesn't arrive in time? Postal transit times are unpredictable. If your card arrives late, don't worry! I will share it in the next showcase video and make sure that you get a return swap! 
I would love for you to include a note inside the card -- a little about yourself or just a happy greeting to the person who gets your card. Please note, I will remove any solicitations (business cards, business links, etc.) 

Attention International Stampers! I would love for you to participate in this swap! Use this Paypal link to pay $5 USD for 3 return postage stamps. (I'll hold them with your name on them to use for future swaps.) I'm worried about transit times, so be sure to mail early or work ahead one month! Mark your envelope with the month/theme you intend to submit the swap.

Privacy Statement: During the showcase video (posted on YouTube and Facebook), I will provide the first and last name of the card maker. If you prefer to be anonymous or only mentioned by first name, please let me know in a written note inside your card. Although I am entering mailing addresses in a spreadsheet, it is for the sole purpose of generating return address labels. Your information will not be shared or sold to a third party, including another swapper. I will never personally use your information for any other reason besides sending return cards for The Great, Big Card Swap.

The Great, Big Card Swap is organized by Julie Davison, Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator since 2002.
