Round Robin ATCs

Cathy's bases are red! All the information is not on the back but I think they started out just as red cardstock, then Hayley added the cool flower with swirl stamp, then the information is there..Christine added the bling to the flower centers, Robin added the doodled heart, and I added a butterfly charm.

Hayley's bases are all cool and inky!! Christine added the awesome embossed stamped image, Robin added the cute doodled flower, and I added the dragonfly charm and dots. This is such a fun round!!!

Round Robin and Swap ATCs

I received Christine's bases!! She used lots of glimmer mist on them, Robin added the cool black swirls in the corner, since black was in the top corner I wanted to also add a touch of black to the bottom so I did the dymo label. The bases were rounded so I also felt I needed to round my label. Can't wait for the next batch to land!!!

The lions are for a swap at Fiskars...20 of them!!! That took forever but it will be a really cool swap to get back.

Not an ATC!

Can you believe two layouts!? These were my CX assignments. I needed to do a zoo layout and a beach layout using Cricut and/or Cuttlebug to embellish. It was fun!!

Materials and instructions can be found here Beach

Treasure & Round Robin

A little thank you for Lani and Leah using one of the stamps they sent my way. They should have these by now so hopefully I am not spoiling the surprise. Thanks again!!!! I used colored pencils, a seed bead for the eyes, and rhinestones on the flowers.

I received Robin's bases! I had no idea how hard it would be to add JUST one thing!! I finally decided since her base was pink and purple and I had the perfect flowers to match I'd add flowers!! The next mail date is Monday...can't wait to see the next set!

Wild 4 You

Can't believe it is almost Valentine's Day! This little Valentine (OK so I can't cover up my addiction it is ATC size 3 1/2 x 2/12)was made using a CuttleBug die, Dymo tape, red Bazzill, Junkitz (I miss them!!), and a heart charm.

I had a fun day day scrapping today! I made 8 ATCs for a swap then after I finished those I decided to play a little more. I have had these ruler sticker forever...one of those things I bought but not really sure why so I wanted them out of here...so I used everything left on the sheet and wouldn't you know that when I was putting stuff away I found ANOTHER unopened package. I really like the way they tuned out so maybe I will use the other package soon. All the charms came from ACP, I hand stitched the flower stems.
