January's ATC Swap

Firstly, I want to wish you all a

I do hope you have enjoyed your time with family and loved ones.

And so, 2012 brings a new year, a new month, and a new ATC swap here at Ali's ATC Swap Stop!

For January's swap, the theme is:

** MY WAY! **

What does that mean you ask? Well, we want you to create your ATCs in whatever style you feel is your 'signature' other words, you choose and create in the style you feel most reflects you.

The rules will remain the same:
  • Everyone makes 4 ATCs, (all the same OR all different.)
  • Send them to me (addy details upon request) by 31st Jan.
  • Include a SAE (large letter stamp) with your ATCs.
  • Receive 4 different ATCs by return!
That's it!
If you would like to join us, please let me know (leave a comment here or drop me an email.) We need 5 people to join in for the swap to go ahead.


  1. Hi Ali...count me in please.
    Happy New Year.

  2. wow this month's theme is a toughie. Count me in and I'll try to figure out what my "style" is !!! agggh. Happy new year Ali !


  3. Happy New Year Ali :D :D :D

    I was going to say count me in but looks like you already have lol ;) Looking forward to this but I have to admit it will be an inspired style which I'm loving at the moment and is not strictly speaking mine ... I do hope that's ok :D

  4. Hi Ali, count me in, please, although not sure i have a style - might end up with 4 assorted style ATC's if that's OK!

  5. I would love to join! Although not sure if I understand correctly what means: Include a SAE (large letter stamp) with your ATCs. Could you please explain it to me? Thank you!

  6. Hi Lilia

    I was just passing so I thought I'd answer Ali's post for her. Hope you don't mind :D

    SAE means Self Addressed Envelope

    The swap is for UK residents only at the moment, and all you need to do after letting Ali know you want to join in is put a separate STAMPED envelope addressed to yourself with your finished ATC's when you send them off to her.

    Don't forget to use a large letter stamp on your empty envelope as you don't know how thick/heavy it will be when it's returned.

    Once Ali receives everyones ATC's she sorts them out and sends us back different ones as swaps using your envelope to send your returns back to you.

    Hope that's helped.

  7. I'm in Canada, so I'll have to wait when you'll be accepting participants from other countries.

    Thank you for explanation, Debbie! I am following your blog. That's how I found my way here.
