ATC Book


This is an ATC Book that I covered with patterned paper and then adhered some stickers from one of the Hostess Simply Scrappin' Kits. The "a" sticker in the "art" heading was really a "d" that I cut to make it an "a". Under that, it says "is life" in the smaller stickers. Which makes it :art is life". I covered the whole thing with Modge Podge and then added the ribbon around the book spine. I am filling it with ATCs (artist trading cards) from swaps and some that I have made. This book was simple and fun to put together.

froggy ATC


I made this ATC for swaps at Stampin' Up! Atlanta Regionals. I love ATC's (artist trading cards)! For this card I stamped the frog from Unfrogettable on Green Galore card stock and covered with crystal effects. Let that dry and cut out. Then I stamped the flowers from Simply Said on Tempting Turquoise (TT) and colored the flowers in with a white gel pen. I mounted the frog with dimensionals and then mounted the TT piece on white card stock and mounted that on Basic Black card base. I doodled around the white card stock with Only Orange and Green Galore pens. I did 20 of 4 different designs for my ATC swaps and the frog cards went first and really quick! Just something about that little jumping frog that people like. lol

I need your help!

I am trying out two blogs at the same time, because I can't decide which one I want to keep. Please check out this blog: http://lorrietorisstampspot.typepad.com/my_weblog/
Which one do you like better? I think I know which one I should keep, but I just can't decide. This is why I need your in put. I will make my decision in one week. Thanks for your help!

First post on this new Blog!

Okay, this is a test. I started a new blog on another site, but it was hard to navagate, so I am testing this one out. I think I like it so far. I will keep them both up for a week or so and see which one works best for me. I am totally new at this whole blogging thing. I have seen so many great blogs from other stampers and was so jealous and so I thought, why not just try it. So here I am! Hope you enjoy and thanks for your interest!
