ATC Swap

What is an ATC swap? It's a chance for an artist (i.e. crafty person) to make a 2.5 by 3.5 card to pass along to fellow artists. You get a group of people willing to trade cards and you send 1 card to each person. So if there are 12 people in your group you make 11 ATC's (or 12 if you want one for yourself). Then you mail them to your group and wait for theirs to come to you. :)

It is quite fascinating to see the different creative strokes of these wonderful people. Each ATC I have received is so unique and wonderfully crafted! Check out some pictures below.

Sound like fun?  Join here!  ATC Swap 7

Bonus: 2 $5.00 Gift Cards (To be drawn from participants in the ATC Swap #7) gift cards courtesy of

These cards were created by the last bunch of crafters that I traded with: (sorry for the bad picture!)

My Sisters photographer (Sarah Woodruff) was gracious enough to let me use her engagement photos for this project!

This explosion box is a scrapbook page that folds into a box. When you open the box the sides fall down to reveal the page.

Wedding Shower...

Picture heavy blog post today!
Today was my sisters Bridal shower. After hours of planning and preparation, it went off with a bang.
Everyone had a wonderful time. I made some beautiful favors using SVGcuts and also a few other crafty items!

Bridal Cake: made with SVG files.

Favor Boxes: Gable box from SVG cuts.

Magnets, Towels, Necklace, Candles, and Picture frames were the favors of the day.

I made some magnets using the Epiphany Crafts 25 Square Punch.

The towels are made with "fruit ladies" fabric found at The fabric was sewn onto some standard Kitchen towels.

The necklace was made with a 1 inch square tile, diamond glaze, and some pretty patterned paper.

The candles were etched with SVGcuts Celtic design.

Party decor and fun shots!

When we were done with the fun we sat down and made the Wedding favors!! (Got to use all that free labor! haha)

101 Favor boxes with Seed packets inside.

101 Popcorn boxes for a Candy Bar at the wedding.
