Artist trading cards (ATCs)

Hello friends 

I want to do something new this year. So I was thinking of starting a series on my blog. I wanted to get going on my making 'to do' list and also learn some new skills, so I thought I would try to make at least one small project a week (sometimes large projects too!) and as I started to plan n I realised it would be a fantastic way to do something and challenge myself !




'52 Weeks, 52 Crafts' is a challenge I set out for myself and here are the creations this week. Artist trading cards (ATCs) are miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world. The only official rule for ATCs is the size: 2.5″ x 3.5″.

ATC's are my first trials and I learnt something new :)



Over the past few years, I have accumulated a lot of pattern paper pads, stamps, stickers ,ribbon, paper scraps etc. So I have decided that this year, if I feel like I need new inspiration then I'm going to "Shop My Stash"

Ever few weeks, I'm going to use my stamps, dies, embossing folders in rotation so that all get used. 




So, I do hope you'll keep joining me throughout  to provide support and encouragement as I keep working towards these goals.

Playing along

  1. Love your personal Challenge . I recently undertook a mammoth craft supplies de-cluttering and it is making me feel good as otherwise the guilt of not using the unloved supplies was eating away at me. Love the ATC idea..I have never made one and you have inspired me to try!
