Feb ATC Swap

Recommended Posts

 Well, it seems that allot of you liked the challenge of a new format-- the Coin. They are " trading coins" either 2", 2 1/2" or 3 1/2" circles. Angie was kind enough to make a template set and you can find the free link here. Thank you for joining in.

 

 

Directions to make ATC -Cards or Coin's

1. Create your ATC with your interpretation of the theme. Create a 2.5 x 3.5 inch card either landscape or portrait at 300 dpi then either post as is (and it’s big enough to be enlarged and seen) or when posting you can reduce the longest side of your card (the 3.5 inch one) to 600 pixels. You can use this same size for the coins. Be sure to share the link in the current ATC thread. Make sure to sign and date your card/coin. Post your ATC to the gallery HERE and please leave some love while you are there.

2. Email the full resolution (300 dpi saved at high quality), flattened jpg version to me at Albin40A@yahoo.com . One  favor I will ask of those who participate please use this format for the file title when you send the full size copy to me. "month and your name" like this Jan ATC- Debby. I found that those with same name were not saved correctly and made it difficult for me to collect them for the month. I find it best to email your copy immediately when you're finished that way you won't have me bugging you down the road with reminders and no one will miss out on your beautiful work! My emails is : Albin40A@yahoo.com

At the end of the month I will send  you a zip file containing all the cards and coins that are sent to me.

 

Now just to kick up this challenge a notch I'd like to hear or see what you do with the coins or cards.  Some people print them and put them into vinyl sleeves in notebooks. I am going to save this years cards and coins then print them in a 8.5X11 so I can slip them into vinyl sleeves to put in a 3-ring binder.   Please share your ideas with us.

 

Now you have a choice to make the traditional card, the new coin format or both. The theme this month of February will be "hearts " in honor of Valentines Day

I look forward to seeing lots of hearts in the gallery. Happy Scrapping ❤️

In my heart Sorry if mine is a little personal. My sister past away a year ago on Valentine's day. I had something else planned for a coin (which I'll work on later) but as I was going through my stash, this coin just sort of made itself and I just went where it took me.

Every work of art is a great promise of escape and, therefore, like an open invitation.

I've been wanting to try a coin, so here is my first.  This is Karlie's String Teddy, who she's had since she was a baby.  She says she will always love him no matter how old she gets.  (The "string" was her word for his ribbon, which she always played with when she was little)

Always Love You

The coin is extra special, that is so wonderful to use art as a way to remember her. Thank you so much for making one.

I am sorry that I have not been up with things but with the grandchildren visiting my extra time was pretty slim, then my son's snowmobile injury kept me pretty distracted.

Thank you all for the wonderful cards and coins.

So what are you doing with them all please share your ideas.
