Busy Busy Busy! Bookmark & ATC' Swaps

There has been so much going on around here, that I have not been able to keep things up to date here. I have been sewing, crafting as well as trying to continue with sorting my craft area. Not always easy when you have a house to clean and hungry mouths that need feeding! So my little blog has been neglected, but not forgotten. I have been busy also making some RAK's (random acts of kindness) for my CB buddies. I shall be posting them out shortly. Anyhow, onto the topic at hand.... a largish post for you all!

Now that I know this has been received I can now show you pics of the bookmark I made for the swap over at the Crafts Beautiful forum. The theme was cupcakes. I made the template myself because I couldn't find anything else I liked. I have used my Cuttlebug and the swirls embossing folder to the cardstock for the icing and background.

I have also made some ATC's (Artist Tradin Cards) You collect them much like baseball trading cards. I am new to ATC's so these were my first attempts. I quite like how they turned out.

The black and white one was made for a Black & white theme swap. I have entitled it Looking Into the Past. If you look through the window you will see a vintage style dress and bag.

The bird ATC is called Glitter Wings and combines a Christmas stamp from Autumn Leaves and a see-d's flower stamp. The bird on the branch is only partially stamped seeing as I didn't want this one to look like Christmas.

Speaking of Christmas, I am in the process of getting things ready for a fair I do around Christmas time. Yes organizing already. It only seems like a few weeks ago I last went! I will be sharing a few details very soon.

  1. Gorgeous bookmark and the blog looks great!
    I was just looking at what I have booked for Christmas, you're right, it does seem like a few weeks ago:) Some of my summer shows also get a lot of "early" Christmas shoppers, so I try to offer a little bit of everything - Between that and the new vintage shop, I'm working full force - fortunately, that when I'm at my best:)
