A.T.C.’s

Posted in ATC, swap at 3:40 pm by scrapbookdesigns

For those of you who have been wondering when the A.T.C. swaps would be back  – well they’re back.  The first one is due at the end on November, the theme for this one is Classic Christmas.  The following themes are January – Carnival, February – Little Girls.

To participate in the swap, you need to make 6 A.T.C’s the same (the size is 3.5″ x 2.5″).  On the back of each card please write your details:  name and email address, plus also the Title you have named your ATC.  Each card also needs to have some hand stamping on it.

Send your ATC’s with $1.00 worth of stamps and a self addressed business sized envelope to:

ATC Swap, Scrapbook Designs, PO Box 1254, ALBANY   WEST AUST 6331, or drop them into the shop.  You will then receive 5 ATC’s from other swap participants in return.  You can send as many sets of 6 in as you like.  At the end we will exhibit the whole collection in store.

If you would like to join this swap, but are not sure what to do, come and see the girls at the shop (or call us) where you can see a display of previous cards, or just get a bit more information.  This is great fun to do, and a wonderful way of seeing other peoples wonderful work and getting to know new people.

    ATC’s- yummy

    Posted in ATC, ideas, swap at 9:47 pm by scrapbookdesigns

    Below are the fabbo entries in our last ATC swap themed “travel”.  Although it was very close to Christmas to get these done, we received some stunning entries by some very clever ladies. Click on each thumbnail for a larger view.  My apologies to Emma who made the last atc in the style of a suitcase.  Our scanner decided it wouldn’t add the handle of the suitcase that made the entry a novel idea.  Sorry Em!!

    Stay tuned for the details on not one, not two but the three next themes in our ATC swaps in the next few postings.

    artist trading cards

    Posted in ATC, samples, swap at 1:29 pm by scrapbookdesigns

    OHHH and AHHH….the last fantastic round from our ATC (Artist Trading Cards) swap are due out tomorrow. We did have a few stragglers due to the busy time of the year and received a couple of sets just after the deadline (thanks girls for ringing to tell us that they were on the way).  Never fear though, all entries have been accepted and the return to participants will be instore or mailed out first thing tomorrow morning.  Thank you to all the ladies who joined this round even in the busy month of December and sent in inspiring ATC’s to share with others. If you have just started visiting our blog then you may want to find out more about our FREE monthly ATC swap by reading some of our previous posts on them, just click on the ATC category to the left of this page to see monthly entries. For a little bit of inspiration below are some of Elaine’s ATC’s.  The 2 ATC’s on top are done with stamps from the awesome Lost Aussie unmounted rubber plates http://www.lostaussie.com. Marie Otero’s (Lost Aussie Designer/Owner) eclectic digital photo inspired images are premium unmounted sheets of rubber that are fantastic for atc’s! Check out Maries site for more information on this very talented artist who also happens to be one of our very good friends!  Although Marie “really” resides in the US, this special lady spends several months a year living somewhere else……….where I hear you ask??? Where else but in our little nook of the world,  Albany Western Australia where she grew up!!  We have been more than lucky enough to have her teach and guest demo at Scrapbook Designs and can hopefully twist her arm to run another stellar workshop when she visits again in the New Year!! Stay tuned in the next couple of days for all details on our next ATC swap and we hope to see you enter! The more the merrier, so don’t hesitate to invite friends to join in too!
