shaped atcs

There is something about shaped atcs that really appeal to me.  Maybe it's just the outside-the-box thing, or maybe it's the challenge of making something that's technically 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches, but not a rectangle.

Here are some shaped atcs that I've received in swaps:
Wendy Robinson., Suzanne C, and Wendy Aspinall

Suzanne C, Kris D, and Terri D
Absolutely love all of these!

If you'd like to see some of my own shaped atcs, I'm sharing some of my favorites today at Altered Pages.

Thank you for stopping by, and a Happy Thursday to you!

a vintage stork and gender reveal DIY deco ideas!

This fellow was a recent contributor to #2 Son and Daughter-In-Law's gender reveal party.  Isn't he a cutie?  I found him at a garage sale for next to nothing.
You'll find the rest of the party decorations, along with plenty of DIY party inspiration, in my post today at the DIY Design Studio blog.  Yes, I even share the actual reveal--hey, Ima gonna be a Nana, after all!

a few of my favorite atcs

In keeping with the atc celebration at Altered Pages this month (you can get some fabulous blog candy by sharing your own creations, by the way, so be sure to go check it out for yourself!), I'm revisiting some of my favorite artist trading card creations.  This one is an atc sized pop-up card, created from a stamped monoprint background:

I'll bet you have have some favorite atc creations of you own--if they're like mine, they got traded, right?
Happy Thursday to you!
