Post Project Discussion: Christmas Card Trade 2017


A new project has been announced in the WetCanvas! project system!

Title: Christmas Card Trade 2017
Project Leader: vmrs
Relative Difficulty: Irrelevant
Type Restrictions: Any Type
Medium: Any Medium
Subject: Not Applicable
Days open for signups: 30
Maximum participants allowed: 16

Description:

This project is a multiple mailing trade, please only sign up if you are able to complete the trade.

This project will be limited to 16 participants, which means you will need to make and mail 15 cards. Each participant is to paint/draw/collage/etc. original card(s) in a size 5x7 inches or smaller (keeping mailing costs in mind) from your own references, imagination, or the RIL. You can either send originals or copies. If you are making copies of one or two designs, please ensure that the copies are of good quality (no regular paper photocopies).

Please be sure to pm vmrs with your mailing address once you sign up for the project.

Please notify the sender as soon as you receive a card so they can upload them to the Final Entries section. Please take the time to comment.

For posting cards to international locations please send out by December 1st. For posting cards within your own country please use your judgment on how fast they will arrive and post accordingly.

It will be fun to receive cards from all over the world depicting each person's holiday season.

If you have any questions please pm (private message) vmrs.

Have fun!!!

How to add images to projects.

To put your images in the project gallery you go to the project page by clicking this link.

Then you go to "upload your final images".




Click on that and you get this page.




On #1, look through the drop down menu for the "Christmas Card Exchange 2016" * Note: I recycled this from last year, for this project of course you would put Christmas Card Trade 2017
On #2, click browse and find the photo on your computer
On #3 Press upload when #2 is done and voila, it's in the gallery.

Note: the long description never shows up in the gallery anymore, so I personally don't bother filling that part out.

Re: Project Discussion: Christmas Card Trade 2017

Not sure if I will be able to participate this year. I'm moving to another part of town. From a 3 bedroom house to a 1 bedroom house. So having to purge so much and pack the rest. Such a mess right now. Not sure of the exact date of the move but possibly about 4 weeks. I will think about if I can do it.

Re: Project Discussion: Christmas Card Trade 2017

Good luck J. I have done that. It can feel a bit overwhelming.... itís hard to get rid of things, but afterwards you will be amazed about how much stuff you had that you didnít really use.

Thanks for the heads up! I'm like J I'm moving and renovating and working 6-7 days a week. I'll probably pass this time but will keep an eye out for it closer to the deadline!

Re: Project Discussion: Christmas Card Trade 2017

Hi all - I've just signed up for this Christmas Card Exchange Project.
Excited to be participating. The last time I took part in a WC Christmas Card Exchange was about 2010. So I'm looking forward to making my mini-cards for this year.

Re: Project Discussion: Christmas Card Trade 2017

to everyone. Nice to see those who are returning, and those who are signing up I havenít exchanged with before. Yay! This is such a fun exchange! To those unable to participate, I hope you will drop by once in a while. Nice to hear from you as well.
