Another Atc Holder

Hello ladies. I hope everyone is having a wonderful night. I made another ATC Holder that I ran across at . My goal this year is to work on all the projects that I wanted to get to last year but couldnt. Here is the one I made. I REALLY need to find some embellishments as I had to part with alot of my things when we had to move.  I know its plain but dont think it turned out too bad.

Mardi Gras RAK

Good evening Ladies. I am trying to get over some sort of cold that is really kicking me in the rear so I havent done much lately. The beginning of march, our cafemom group ATC Sisterhood did a Mardi Gras challenge and one of the ladies in our group Donna created an ATC showing just what you have to do to earn your beads. She is a crack up. I loved it so much I asked if she would mind making me one and what a doll she was. Today in the mail I not only recieved the ATC but a Mardi Gras RAK.  She sent beads, ( and I didnt even have to flash her lol), An adorable hair tie and a beautiful Mardi Gras Sticker. Thanks so much Donna!!

ATC Card Accordian Folder

Hello ladies. Am starting to get back into a creative mood again.  Good thing too, I was beginning to think I was creatively challenged.  A dear friend of mine Jamie posted this wonderful tutorial for this box in her group ATC Sisterhood on Cafemom and knew I had to give it a try. This project is super simple to make and doesn't take too long. I did make a change from the original tutorial as I found that the accordion folds along the side tend to pop out of the box. So I solved that issue by putting in dividers in between the folds to secure the Accordion folds.  Hope you like it.

Here is an inside view of it.

Sorry about the quality of the pictures. I'm not too sure that I like my new camera and I hope you all can see it. The box was made from this beautiful light purple pearl type card stock and fell in love with this beautiful patter paper by bo bunny call " Peacock Lane Tweet." I embellished the box with a couple of different paper flowers I had lying around. ( I am addict to flowers and wish that I could get my hands on more). Well I hope you like as much as I do. Thank you for stopping by.

Love ATC

Good evening ladies. Its been awhile since my last post but things have been quite hectic around here. My son has had a learning disability and have been fighting the school system to have him tested for the last 4 years. We recently moved from California to North Carolina in November of 2010. I received a call last week from the school asking for permission to have him tested. Thank the good Lord that they are finally going to try to help him. Its been a long and difficult struggle for both my son and I and things are looking up.

Here are a couple of ATCs that I worked on for a swap in ATC sisterhood on cafemom. I remember a time that I used to love working on 6x6 albums because they were so easy to fill a page. Now, I complain that ATCs are so darn small. lol. This first one I made I really didn't like. Living out here takes some getting used to as there is not all the great stores that California had to offer. So I was able to pick up these stickers at walmart and here is the result of those.

The next one I REALLY fell in love with and the best part of it all was I already had all the supplies for it. Just took me a bit to think out side the box.

The word love was pink card stock that I applied double sided sticky tape to and ran thru my sizzix machine. After It was all cut out, I peeled off the backing and applied red micro fine glitter by Glitter Ritz and burnished it onto the tape. I am in love with this glitter as it gives it almost a smooth velvety texture. I glued the word love down on black textured card stock and punched the edges with my Tonic Studios 2-in-1 Corner Punch: Fleur 2. I embellished with some white flat back pearls and adhered it to red card stock.

Well I hope all you wonderful ladies have a great night and thank you for visiting my blog.
