Can't seem to get enough

of making ATCs at the moment. Such a fantastic way to play with new ideas, techniques and materials. I shamefully showed friends that though I store my own ATCs in a smart Laura Ashley Ring Binder, I house those I receive in a small unassuming tin.

It's been a busy few weeks with lots of craft shows and get togethers. I've spent a small fortune on anything that's metallic or glimmers, not to mention the stamps I just had to have. All of them are being put to good use in these ATCs. Not that I'm any quicker at making these little tinkers. At a recent crafting meet up, it took me all day to make just two. That's three hours each haha.

Anyway, amongst the materials and techniques seen in these miniature pieces are UTEE (which has been stamped into), Velvet paper (embossed with cuttlebug & inked), Paperchase's Acrylic gems, Cosmic Shimmer mists, pearl powders and a hint of my favourite miri card, ruby slipper.

Fab ATCs, Paul - each one very different, but equally good. Although I think the 'Cherish' one might have a slight edge - love the colours and the embossed velvet paper. You could make me one if you like - but I'd have to find a small unassuming tin to keep it in first LOL!!

Paul They are lovely. Know what you mean about the time thing and the worst thing is the simpler you make them look the longer they seem to take.Love the UTEE one. Hugs Betty
