Thank you to everyone who entered the July Stamp Man ATC swap, entered for the blog candy and who shared their work for others to see on this blog. We're VERY impressed with the quality of your work.

Before Janet announces the featured ATCer for the July swaps, I'd like to announce the winner of the blog candy giveaway.. it is...

Congratulations Tracey!! Please can you email me at to claim your prize, I will need you to email your postal address too so that I can send your prize.

Thank you again for taking part.


Now over to Janet...


Well done Anita for being picked as our featured artist - your colour choices were fabulous and your stamping lovely. As the featured artist you get to choose the next theme which will be Octobers theme - details are in your swaps package which has been posted today. Your ATC is also the first for the new ATC board in The Stampmans shop and Jill has swapped her ATC with yours.
So the first swap is complete here is what they all looked like together

ATC Entries for July

There were 37 swappers for July, here they are all 111 atcs spread out on the table ready for swapping! It was great to see so many of you re-cycling your envelopes and Julie from Belgium I love your envelope so much it will go up in my craft room as inspiration!

They are now in the post box waiting to "wing" their way to you!

Just one thing to bear in mind. Regular atc swappers will know this already but we want to encourage new atcers too - ATCs MUST be 2 and a half inches by 3 and a half inches - this is one rule that cannot be broken as in this case size does matter! Please ensure you measure your atcs carefully especially if you have bought them or are using playing cards - not all atc blanks sold are the correct size.

We do hope you will join in again

In the mean time I have added a new theme for September entitled

We thought having an atc swap with a theme where you could use the stamp would be great - however feel free to interpret the theme of
