ATC Round Robin

This should be fun!!!! We have a group of eight, at each stop one thing will be added to the ATC, then when we get ours back we will send one of ours to each person in the we will all end up with 8 different cards created by all of us!! To start mine I added a page from an old medical journal. I also thought it would be fun to do a card with the mail route on it. I gave Mrs. Wade a hat and a seedbead necklace.

Snow Delight

For a swap. This is what I have been working on for the last 3 days. It was fun but took a little longer than I thought it would. The snow babies are from a painting pattern by Annie Lang...they had cute round noses and since this is a snowman swap I thought they needed carrot noses so I changed that, chalked their rosy cheeks, and glittered their caps. I stamped delight on twill and added snowflake charms. I love the way they turned out!

Garvan Gardens Mini Album

My friend Chandra sent me these really cool envelopes from Martha Stewart for Christmas and they were too cool to use as cards so I bound them together to make a mini album. I used two envelopes and 3 cards. On the envelopes I glued the first flap shut and covered it with paper to use as the cover on the second one I left the flap open to hold my tags and it is the back cover. The inside "pages" are 3 cards cut in half. Papers are Cloud 9 Christmas Is and also lots of fun embellishments from that line were used. That was an awesome RAK from Angela at Fiskars! All the charms came from ACP. It was a really fun night and I soooo enjoyed scrapping about it!

Scrapping with FT

Bunny sent me these really fun Halloween stickers...on springs!! And some dimensional ones plus gel stickers... FT was excited..he wanted them!! He loves to stick things to himself and the door and these were too cool for that so I told him he could help me make a book. Christine had sent me these four really thick, cool, BIG, and black chipboard pieces in different shapes so I used the bind-it-all on them. So cool!! I am not sure why I thought the boy would listen and carefully put the stickers where I wanted started off well but then it quickly went downhill...he put the spider on the ladies head!!?? And he had to use each and every sticker on the sheet. Lots of stickers. It was fun!!!

4 Trade

I made this to keep the ATCs I have available for trade in. I cut all the pockets with my Cricut using the pocket slider in Going Places. I cut different things in the front of each so I could peek at the card to make it easy to find if someone request the ATC.

My first creation of

the new year! Based on a paint pattern by Kathi Walters. I colored the charm of the month from ACP so I could enter this in their contest and tucked it under her wing. I hope to scrap more in 2009!
