Tim Holtz Class

While I LOVE the way this card turned out, I HATE those flowers.  I'm sure Archviers wanted us to buyt the 4 punches and the tool kit to make these flowers but the were toooo much!!  Punch them, ink them and then use a tool to curl them.  Nuh uh!!!!  I LOVE the ribbons stacked up & the cupid!!

Orange & Purple

I made what I thought was a PERFECT purple & orange ATC for Chris's swap.  She never got it & never got it.  So, I made a different one & sent it to her.  I don't LOVE this as much as I did the first one but maybe that's 'cause I KNEW it was a replacement.  I think this is a Unity stamp & I KNOW the DSP is Basic Grey.

Last week, I got a USPS "body bag" and the original ATCs were returned to me.  Chris' name was ripped thru so they sent it back to me.  ATCs were not damaged!!!  I'll have to come up with a swap theme that fits & host one of my own!

Tim Holtz Valentine Class

Ever so long ago, I took a class at Archivers.  I've just never got around to posting the pics!  Now that Valentines Day was a MONTH ago, I'll post.  LOL

I liked the IDEA of this card but my execution of it left something to be desired.  I'm going to have to try this on another card.  Maybe one I can actually do properly.

October Afternoon ATC Swap

I hosted a swap with the only stipulation that you use October Afternoon paper.  This is my ATC from the swap.  A month or so ago, Lori (I THINK it was Lori; Lori was the one to send me star cut outs!) showed us how to make these 3D stars but much LARGER sizes.    I thought that a smaller version would work great for this paper.  I love how the end product came out!  The grid star is from Unity, the orange one is a punch!
