Always ATC

I don't think that I have ever made an ATC before.... they are kinda fun! I made these to go on my display board for the 2009 New Catalog Release Open House on January 31. If you haven't signed up yet, there are just a FEW tickets left. Free make and takes, food, beverages, raffles, tons of ideas and lotsa fun! If you are in Vancouver WA or Portland OR, check it out here: I'll be giving my guests an extra little something for attending. I am definitely looking forward to it.

Following along the lines of my other display items, these little ATCs are stamped with the Always set using Baja Blue, Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, Basic Black on Whisper White cardstock. Cute, huh?

I have been working on a project from the Life Well Crafted class I am taking through Big Picture Scrapbooking. We are making attribute albums and they can be about anyone. The assignment was to come up with a list of attributes and quotes or definitions that go along with that attribute. I decided to make three, one for me and one for each of my daughters, Lillianna and Emily.

I finally finished Lil's which is pictured here. The cover is based on a sketch that I happened across a few weeks ago - perhaps a Mojo Monday sketch? Anyway I created all of them using the just retired Summer Home Simply Scrappin Kit from Stampin' Up! I love the color combination of Riding Hood Red, Baja Blue, Kiwi Kiss and Chocolate Chip. It was perfect to make three 6x6 albums.

Today I found photos for each of Lil's attributes and added them. Now I have to find photos of me and Em to finish our books. I like how they are turning out. I kept them pretty simple to focus on the photo and the meaning.
Thanks for stopping by! By the time you read this we will have a new president! Go Obama!

  1. Both projects are terrific! I'm not an ATC fan or collector, but yoru design, stamps, & colors are just right! And the layout? Oh how I hope that I get brave enough to try a bit of scrapping this year! Way to go!
