Hi today i am posting some Atc's i made with the theme Autumn on the Craft, Chat, Share and Care, i have been taking part in their Atc swaps for several months now and i am getting quite a collection, the idea's people come up with are great.
for any of you that don't know what Atc's are they are miniature pieces of art 2 and a half by 3 and a half inch about the size of trading cards, they are made to be swapped with other Atc makers.

Hi i had a go at making some flowers with a die, all of the petals are individual and glued to a centre piece then layered up.  The white one has the centre end of the petals coloured pink with Promarkers.  The die is Spellbinders create a gerber daisy.  i have since bought a Woodware paper punch which does similar flowers.  i will take more pics next time i make one showing in detail and also the paper punch.  Full of cold and also in a lot of pain with my Fibromyalgia, bye for now.

Morning everyone, i have been having a play with some of the new Autumn/halloween collection at Dragons Lair Designs soon to be released.

I printed off the Pumpkin paper which i love, the colours and design are gorgeous, also some of the elements, i slotted the paper clip under the paper and backed the paper in yellow and red card and stuck my buttons on with 3d foam pads to raise them off the paper.

I then added a die cut tree from my collection, the other buttons and cut out the witch, cat and owl topper and mounted on 3d foam pads all from the Dragons lair designs.


For this project a bit of recycling, i brushed some PVA onto the jar and wound some cheap string around.

 I then added some buttons and star from the Autumn/halloween collection and tied some ribbon around the top, a lovely pen pot for my craft table.


For my 3rd project i made some tags, i cut some tag shapes from card then recycled some cardboard by gently tearing off the top coating to reveal the corrugation, added some Plasterers scrim from my Husbands tool box, then printed out my elements from the collection and cut them out, the bows at the top look very effective and no tying involved, they were attached by adding a small dot of PVA to hold in place then stapled, the 3rd tag also has a die cut swirl on,  This collection is wonderful, why not pop over and have a look at the other goodies in store.
