I finished my 2nd ATC swap today and put it in the mail. It is a birthday themed ATC swap. You make a card of your birth month. I used my floral stickers from way back when to make a collage on all my cards. It was great. That used up about 5 sheets of K&Co and some miscellaneous ones that I never would have used otherwise. I wrote my quote on a small 1"x1" piece of vellum which I ran through my baby xyron. I used the quote, "April showers bring May flowers." I thought they turned out very pretty.
I'm never really sure what to do with these ATC's. The first ones I ever made were for the CS 2005 crop. We had to make 5 to swap the first night we got there. I was so nervous making these for the first time and for strangers. I used UTEE to give a faux cracked glass appearance and made the card vintage. I thought they were alright. Some of the ones I saw were really bad so I don't know why I was so worried.
I was going to post all the ones I made today, but I thought I would wait until I got mine back and then post all the 9 cards I receive.
I worked on my Page of Me for my PoM swap due the end of this month. I used my Tim Holtz distress ink and sprayed my background pages with water and ironed them to give them a distressed look. Then I took some white embossing powder and used that to give a distressed painted look to them. Now I need to print out my quote and information and tack that down as well as adhere my photo. I will post one of these before I mail it off. Kim, who is hosting, is going to bind them for us in a mini album. I thought that was novel and that is why I am doing it.
My scrap room is a MESS. What can I say. No progress there.
Hi! Come on in and look around!
Welcome to my window on the world. A snapshot of my life and experiences. I'm a photography junkie and a scrapbook addict. I capture it all here, and share my journey down this amazing road called LIFE with you!
