I know, don't faint! I have done some ATCs! Now some of you may or may not know (or even care) but ATCs are what got me into papercrafting. I was reading a magazine and there was an article about them with a website address....and the rest is history! I moved from ATCs to Inchies and then after a long while I took the even bigger step to Scrapbooking! Now I probably have not done an ATC for a couple of years. UKStampers was where I did a lot of ATC swapping and after a short break their swap has re-started with the theme Shades of Blue. As I am on my hols still, I thought I would join in and who knows....maybe I will be able to do some each month now. So a quick BG using spritzed Distress Inks then stamped over with a flower stamp and spritzed with a blue glimmer mist.
I cut out the fabric flowers from some scraps I discovered kicking about and then stitched beads in for the middles. Finally I added the dymo tape strips. I really enjoyed doing these so let's hope I can keep up with the swaps. I am anticipating that now all the children will be at the same school and my hours have changed slightly life might provide me with a little more free time!
I am a married mother of four who took up papercrafting about 4 years ago. I started with ATCs and Inchies and as I got braver I started to Scrapbook too! My current faves are stamping CJs (oooo just love 'em), scrapbooking and making mini books with the shedloads of photos I take!As you can imagine I have to fit it round the children and also numerous pets so blogging can be a bit hit and miss! Generally I blog better in school holidays when I am not at work as a TA. Thank you for popping by and I hope you like what you see here!
