Hello and happy Tuesday! I'm linking up at Altered Book Lover where Elizabeth is sharing what's in her cup today. All you need to do is have a cup/beverage to show and talk about whatever you want. It's almost as good as sitting down and having tea with her and the others sharing today. Thank you Elizabeth for hosting us each Tuesday, so glad I can be here to share with you.
I want to say a big THANK YOU for all the sweet comments last Tuesday about my newest ATC obsession. A lot of you have done them and shared links to them and more for help and inspiration. THANK YOU for that and for some of you wanting to trade with me too. It's been so fun connecting with others this way. I'm still obsessed with them and have some to share with you today, YAY!!
In the above picture, I'm enjoying a cup of hot tea and making some new ATC. I had the idea of using a brown paper bag and recycling a pop tart box, LOVE THIS!! No box is safe in my house now, there is a small stack piling up in my craft space to be cut up and used. For this first set I made paper bag blooms and LOVE THEM!! Figured we needed some spring and flowers around here.
here are the rest of my supplies, book paper and punches
the end resulted into these cuties, paper bag blooms. I traded these and had to make doubles and triples of some of them to have enough. I also ended up making one with paper butterflies on it and had 3 of them get traded. YAY!! I wish you could see them in person, they look much cuter then this picture. I have more ideas for using these supplies again, so fun using paper goodies.
I woke up yesterday with an idea already in mind, love when that happens and here is what resulted...
I think I love these more but it's a close tie. I wanted banners and the colors kraft and yellow together. I did the kraft ones and decided they needed some white ones too. Wanted to keep these simple and easy to make more of if necessary. My favorite one is the 3 butterfly one in the bottom row. YAY for that being the first one someone asked for, then the owl and another owl and 3 for the inspire one. Slowly the rest are being asked for too. You can click on the image to see them better.
So do you have a favorite out of this set and the paper bag blooms?
I have no idea what my next ones will be, might try doing something more collage like.
These are the very first ATC I received that started all this. I saw them and wanted them, she made a set of them and I was lucky to get two of them. Aren't they so cool. Lots of layers in there.
here are the ones I received over the weekend and I just got more last night. I love all of these so much. Some I picked and one was made just for me. They are so neat to see in person, love this part. All these years of seeing everyone's art on the computer screen and wishing I could actually hold it and really look at it, now I can!!! Seems I came into this at the right time since 4 of them have just started doing these with me. We are learning together and enjoying getting all this beautiful happy mail during the week.
Did anyone else hear that the movie FROZEN won for best Animated movie and the song Let it Go won for best song of the year!!! YAY!!! I wish Sienna and Colt were old enough to understand that.
I started my 30 days of list and will share them with you next week along with my new daily book paper sketches for this month. Somewhere I need to squeeze in some Project Life too.
Thank you for your visits today and hope you have a great week. Can't wait to see what's new with everyone today. I will be stopping by to say hello. Stay warm or cool wherever you are. HUGS!
