March Atc Swap

72 posts in this topic

This month we're continuing with the "about me" series. I've enjoyed getting to know you all with "the year I was born" and "where I'm from."

 

This month, I want to find out more with:

What I do

 

This can be your job, your hobby, you're life's calling. Things you like to do, and things not so much. Are you chief cook and bottle washer? Chauffeur? Caregiver? Do you geocache? Do you garden? Do you exercise? Collect widgets? Knit? I know you scrapbook!

 

You have a month to complete the challenge and you can do as many as you like. Cards are due Wednesday, April 4. Post your ATC in the ATC Challenge & Swap gallery. Then email a full resolution to me at scrapgirl.elisha@gmail.com. I will post a new challenge on April 5.

 

 

If you're looking for products to help you with this challenge, check out these for inspiration:

Looking forward to getting to know each of you better and seeing what you all come up with. Have Fun!!

This is probably a really stupid question, do we treat these like miniature layout? In particular I am thinking about shadows.

 

Or is it just whatever works for me.

Hi Valerie,

Yes, that's what I always did - just opened a 2.5x3.5 document and then worked on it as if it were any other LO.

Always seemed to work for me! :) Good luck - ATCs are fun!

PS - remember - no there is no such thing as a "stupid" question here! :D

Count me in on this Elisha. I have several ideas already twirling in my head. This should be fun.

Yes, whatever works for you. For small layouts like ATCs you have to make the shadows very tiny to get them to look right! But I like to have shadows, myself - and I've saved a preset after I got it right. (I use CS4).

 

Maybe a set of ATC shadow styles are in order.

I'm having a hard time coming up with an idea for this one - still thinking.........it's kind of like the "where I'm from idea" - I had no idea how to scrap where I was from and no idea how in the world to scrap this! Something will come to mind sometime in the middle of the night and I'll have to get up right away and DO IT! LOL LOL

Is it best to email them one at a time, or when I've done all I want to?

I think either way is fine, Valerie really. I email them as I do them so I don't forget any usually

You can email them to me however works for you. I put them in a folder as I get them.

My take on "What I Do" kind of turned into "What I Am" and what I see! It's HERE

 

I have a couple more ideas in my head (I think) :disappearing-smilie:

I warned you I might be hooked, here's my second card, Special Benji.

 

I've also created a couple of cards about where I'm from. I never thought creating these would be so much fun or so satisfying.

I started this one on Saturday before Ben broke his arm, I've managed to finish it. My link

 

I do have another idea, but unless Ben goes back to school soon I won't be able to do it.
