Circus ATC


ATC and circus…to me the 2 together are a no brainer. ATC’s are so much fun to make and the imagery of the circus so rich that I suspect I could make a dozen cards at least and not get tired of them. Ildi Geist’s goodies again provided me with ample fodder for this one (products used are no longer available)




Ildi has a great new Page Set coming out tomorrow. I feel an ATC coming on!!!

More ATC's and changing the journal

Ugh...the 9x7 size journal is no longer available for printing.....grrrrr. So I shall have to rethink that one. I think I may just print the pages I have and work them into a hybrid book that I have started with other pages I had printed....and then changed my mind. Gotta love a changeable mind ;-)

Meantime...I've been playing with ATC's some more.

More than half my wardrobe is purple, I'm sure. I try valiantly to move away from it (variety is the spice of life and all that sort of thing....) but success is limited. I used a kit called 'Start Wearing Purple' by Ildi Geist for this double sided card...not that I need any encouragement!



Here is another one with a school theme...that chalkboard background make me want to grab chalk and start drawing!

Fun Journal Page

This one was fun to make...just kinda pondering the variety and multi facetness (is that a word?) of life,



I used Ildi Geist's Circus Maximus Page Set (no longer available)

New ATC's

I'm going to post these retro active. Just too much happening in my life to keep up with decency ;-) and I still wish I had more time to make ATC's. Maybe I should set one day apart purely for the pleasure of making ATC's

Now that sounds like a plan.

Ildi Geist has a kit called 'Funky Soul' (no longer available) and it is brimming with goodies....and memories. I pulled out the ones that 'yelled' the loudest to me. What do you think?



Ildi hosts an ATC swap at Scrapbook-Elements. It runs monthly and every month the theme is different. This month of August is medieval virtues. I have a few more ideas of cards to make, but will I get to it in the next week?




Here is another one, also featuring Ildi's goodies.



and another of the monthly themed ones



I love taking out my little ATC box and just looking at all the goodies inside...I should take a picture to show it to you sometime....

Fantasy ATC

I enjoy reading old school Science Fiction. the new stuff does not appeal to me in the least, it simply doesn't have the charm of the older efforts. I was listening to Fahrenheit 451 while making this one btw.

Money Talks

Remember 'Forever in Blue Jeans' by Neil Diamond? (hmmm you're THAT old? LOL) I heard it on the radio again the other day and when I saw Lisa's new kit...it begged me to capture this line in print.
