But the guillotine is just so much more fun and stress-relieving to use

MN LTC retreat

We are putting together an LTC retreat scheduled to be July 29 through August 1, 2016 at South Fork FarmĀ  https://southforkfarm.com in Minnesota. The minimum number of participants is 13 and the cost, per person, is $146 whether you stay in the house or off-site. If you are traveling with a non LTC maker or with a male, they will need to sleep off sight.

Our goal for the weekend is to share techniques, experiment with supplies, gain inspiration, and have fun. We have letters being set to companies like Ranger, Copics, Strathmore, Speedall, Tattered Angels, (etc.) telling them about LTC makers and asking for donations for our retreat.

We would like a verbal commitment by January 15th. You must submit the registration fee, to Linsey(Linden Leaf), by February 15th to confirm your spot in the retreat. It will not be refunded if you cannot attend, but you may find another LTC-maker to take your spot, and be reimbursed BY THEM.

If there are not enough registrations the retreat will be cancelled, your fee will be refunded.

The committee also has a Facebook page. If you would like to join let me know.

The details are incredible. I like the idea of multiple views of the image layered. Cool ideas.

I have recently started joining some LTC trackers. I was wondering about adding photos of my LTC's. I haven't "stalked" any other participants boxes so I'm not sure what is/isn't acceptable.

Should I list a photo of the LTC when I create the "box" or leave it a surprise?

I think people usually like surprises. Some people like spoilers though. I think I would refrain from posting photos on the clue page though.

I agree with LROSEM, most people usually don't include pics. You can, however, make a photo gallery with your LTCs. Just make sure to name it "LTC Spoilers" or something like that, so people know.

Go to Toolbox and you should see the button for Photo Gallery. Once you've pressed it, there should be options to create your own or browse others Albums.

Good luck!

You could also check out facebook groups. Letterbox Trading Cards and LTC fanatics are a couple.

We will post pictures of our LTCs in our LTC folder. Unless people know us they may or may not know to look. Only once we sent a link to the individuals in the tracker. It was for an image that must be carved but haven't found the right place. The only reason we sent it out was do to the graphic violence of the card. We wanted to give fair warning since the card was not suitable for children. If you don't mind spoilers here is a link to our LTC album.

I have a blog and show my LTCs there. I have a link to it in the "clue" of my cards. I usually post the blog on the "start" date for the LTC tracker. All tracker hosts are different; some will return the cards within two weeks, some will return the cards six months later. So, if you follow my blog you get to see the cards a little early.
