Sports supplies for scrappers/and card makers

So my Husband and I are huge BAMA fans!!! And I have a scrapbook for our Crimson Tide football seasons. There is one huge problem we have being fans of the Tide... We live on the West coast. We live close to Bezerkly CAL, and Stanford. So The supplies are very hard, OK non existent on the side of the country. Articles, Magazines, pictures, paper you name it it doesn't exist here.
But Eureka!! I for a site that does carry it They have a few items which is better than what i got now!!!
I just thought i would share this information so if others do have a scrapbook/ or a College fan(of any college team not just BAMA) they need to make something for this site has papers and stickers...
Just a thought!
Have a great weekend!!

Hey Swappies,
I was thinking that Next month we trade swappies as We have new additions. Let me know your thoughts/feelings...

Oh yeah btw Please don't feel obligated to buy anything extra like stamps or the like unless you want to. I want this to be burden free... thanks

Hey Swappies

Hey Ladies I just got a great question from a fellow swappie... I totally forgot to say... If you wanted to send a personal not to your swappie put that on a separate piece of paper so your swappie can use your card if they wanted too. Also just a suggestion I'm not sure if other people use these, but i have a stamp that says "Handmade by:" that i use on the back of my cards...
I do suggest that if you have this use it on the back of your creations... But you Don't HAVE to go out and buy one... OK i was just rambling talk to you soon.

Card Swap Guidlines (repost)

Hey Everyone here are a few guidelines for the cardswap...

No need to buy anything (unless you want to). Just use what you already have.

THEMES are suggestions and can be changed or altered by swappies. For example if a suggested theme would require you to buy something because you don't have it then please change it and discuss it with your swappie. I want everyone to have fun. Also if you're not inspired by the theme suggested please talk to your swappie and change it.

Once your swappie is announced please email them directly.

I would like every swappie to swap every month without fail (ideally). So if things come up PLEASE contact to your swappie and I so we can make changes or stop your swap or something.

Also If for any reason you want to stop swapping PLEASE let us (ME and your SWAPPIE) know.

PLEASE KEEP TRACK OF YOUR CARD SWAPS. ( i will try to put mamabears card swap in the subject with all emails)

If you are swaping overseas: In a note on a separte piece of paper (do not write on the card) please write your address. (sometimes the post stamps over it and the recipient can not read it.)
