Fun acrylic Christmas album!!

These are some sneak peeks at an acrylic album class I'm teaching at my lss! I cant wait! It is chock full of Tim Holtz's seasonal grungeboard and distress stickles! these were really neat to work with, I love how the distress stickles really do look like vintage antique glass. If you haven't tried them yet, you should! I also used some of Tim's christmas stamps and Quickutz' new "Jolly" shapes and phrases... what fun, and thanks for looking!

This was my first attempt at making ATC's, also known as artist trading cards. I participated in a swap at one of my favorite online scrapbooking sites, Studio Calico! I made two identical cards and sent them to two people that I was paired up with, and in return, I received two different cards from these same people. It was very fun to receive my cards in the mail. They both were beautiful and hopefully I will get a picture of them up in the next day or so! If your not familiar with ATC's, there is plenty of info on the net to get you started! Some sites even host swaps that you can participate in as well. Maybe I will also post some pictures of my Christmas cards that I have been working on. Thats all for now....

I really dont have anything important or exciting to say but it might come in handy to talk about and share my obsession with all things scrapbooking and cardmaking!! So there, I've got a blog..... let the party begin!
