I discovered ATC's (artist trading cards) over a year ago and was hooked. I love putting together mini art using all my mini scraps. If I weren't an AVID crafter/artist, I'd be called a Hoarder. I can't seem to toss even the teensiest bit of paper or trim! That is when the ATC comes to my rescue.
The next issue at hand becomes WHERE to store all these little goodies that you have swapped with other AVID artists.
I was inspired by this book…
It’s folded pages were the perfect solution to hold many papers. So I commenced to folding and tearing and gluing to create this…
I added extra mini pockets to hold even more goodies.
I have adhered business cards and labels to the backside of the pages so I have a crazy record of all my artsy friends out there. Everyone who sees it admires all the works and flip through the pages so I would say mission accomplished. I want to enjoy and be inspired by what others have created and shared and it’s just so convenient and cute!
I also recently surfed onto The Blissful ATC swap. This looks like fun to me and had to join in. Of course, it must be regarded as therapy for an AVID
hoarder crafter so I may release all my bits and bobs into the world. Hop on by and check it out. You may get hooked also.
I’ve put together a few tags for a new swap using DOVE chocolate wrappers with the sayings on the inside.
They are still in the working stage, but I luv, luv, luv the COLORS.
Thanks for stopping by for a chit chat and I’ll check ya later alligator.
