Kim, your cards were just so wonderful. I would be proud to send them to anyone. Mine...not so much...I thought they looked very amateurish. I don't feel like I'm making an even swap here.
Ann, your cards did not look amateurish, but I know the feeling of thinking your cards do not measure up. But I've been in 3 swaps now and each time I learn something new that makes the process more enjoyable. Each time I'm a little happier with my results. I haven't received any cards that I haven't been delighted with! So I hope you'll give it another go!
p.s. I highly recommend going to a bookstore and perusing some of the card magazines! It's been a great way for me to break down the basic elements of card creation and see how I can transfer those concepts to digital. It's challenged me to learn some new techniques along the way (and makes me extra glad for my space-saving, super flexible digital supplies!)I have a lot to learn but i'm having fun with it!

Ann, you can also look through youtube and find inspiration. That's what I do.
Yeah, you can find lots of inspiration on youtube --- Dawn's Stampin' Studio AND Chic N Scratch are a couple of my favs!

I have to ponder this one, I have not been satisfied with anything I've produced yet. I should practice some more before I send things off to others.
Ann I stumbled upon this thread while looking for another and have to strongly object as the receiver of your VERY first cards! They were lovely, I used both of them already and each recipient was delighted (as was I)!
I understand a little of your distress as I too, still don't quite "get" either the hybrid cards or ATC techniques and feel a bit at a loss when making them.
But, please don't discount your efforts, truly - I loved yours that you sent me. K?

OK, I've been studying the cards that Kim sent, and researching on the sites you all suggested...I guess I'm game to give this one more try.

Yeah Sheryl! It is fun and I love seeing what everyone has done!
I would like to doing this for the first time. Sounds like fun!
