Artist Trading Cards

I just discovered Artist Trading Cards and they are cool!
Artist Trading Cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art about the same size as modern baseball cards or 2 ½ X 3 ½ inches (6cm X 9cm), small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets.The cards are usually traded or exchanged rather than sold.

Here are a couple that I experimented with...
Drop me a comment if you have tried them also. I would love to see them!

Enjoy & Happy Craftin'

Birthday time!

It is my son's 16th Birthday coming up and here are the invites, gift bags and sign that I made. Since these were for Teen Boys, I had to refrain myself from making them too Girly!!

St. Valentine's Day gift boxes....

I am participating in a St. Valentine's Day Progressive Dinner with a group of friends and this is what I made for all the women.

The boxes were cut out with my Cricut using Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge. I used a 12" x 12" sheet of paper and pressed the fill paper option. It was able to cut 2 boxes per page... very easy!! After I assembled them, I put a couple of pieces of Hershey's Nuggets inside.

SO Cute!

Craft + Kids = Awesome fun!

I had the most wonderful day crafting with my niece, Claudia. She is 9 yrs old and very creative. We decided to make Valentine cards for her class (sorry, forgot to take pics) and I was able to introduce her to the CuttleBug... well I think I have created a monster! She just loved it!!

Why is it that when we get around children that we just get more creative?? Not sure about you, but I know I do.  I can't wait to have more craft days and we are already thinking about Christmas cards that we can make!

Grab some supplies, sit down with a child and craft!!

Happy Craftin'
