February Digital Atc Swap

03 February 2016 - 09:10 AM

Finally February ... and it's "all about hearts". Yes, I know that probably everyone and their sister are doing heart themes right now, but it is February and it is the Valentine month so let's do hearts! Now you can go medical on us ... or comical on us, or poetic or even make actual little Valentines that you could print out and send in the mail to surprise a friend or two ... but either way, let's wear our hearts on our sleeves and decorate the gallery with LOVE!

 

If you have never made an ATC (Artist Trading Card) before, here is a link: ATC Instructions.

 

You may create as many cards as you would like, just please remember to sign and date each card. Upload them to the Artist Trading Cards - Digital & Hybrid Gallery and email the full resolution copy (750 x 1050 pixels at 300 ppi) to me at: scrapgirl.bride@gmail.com

 

The cards are due to me by Friday, February 26th. I will get those back to you sometime that weekend!

 

Happy-Heart-felt-Scrapping!!


January Digital Atc Swap!

Happy Two Thousand and Sixteen!!

 

This is going to be a great year ... I can feel it in my bones! Of course, it does help to have a positive attitude and that is what I'm choosing to have this year ... a positive attitude! I want to look at the bright side of things and try to carry that with me into each day of my week. Over the years I have collected little sayings that can help adjust the attitude about a situation and I have them neatly filed away on my computer and tucked into a Pinterest file ...

                           ... and so what good are they doing me there, you ask?

 

Well, I'm glad you asked! Don't you think it's time to get those little "happy" quotes out of the files, scrap them and make them available to do you some good? I don't know about you, but I plan on taking our little swap of quotes, print them out and hang them on the refrigerator, the dresser mirror, the door I leave the house from, maybe even the car ... anywhere I can see and be reminded that I choose joy! Oh! just as I was typing I thought that maybe I can even carry them with me and hand them to the bank teller who is having a bad day, or the store clerk who just got reamed out by the customer in front of me ... why not just make someone else's day better too? Will you join me this month and get your mind (and mine) on the right track?

December Atc Challenge & Swap

01 December 2015 - 06:23 AM

Did you know that the first Christmas postage stamp made its debut in 1962? It was first issued by the U.S. Post Office Department in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on November 1, 1962 after customers had requested such a stamp for years. (Original stamp in thumbnail below - can you believe postage was only 4 cents then?) Each year since, the Postal Service issues a Holiday Contem­porary and Holiday Traditional postage stamp. This year, the Holiday Contemporary is the Santa and Sleigh Forever stamp, which features a “classic” image of Santa and his reindeer circling around snow-covered rooftops, and the Holiday Traditional Stamp is the Holy Family Forever stamp. The Holy Family stamp celebrates Christmas with a scene from the Nativity story that reminds us of the joys of the season: family, togetherness, and the birth of Jesus.There is a more in depth article on the history of the Christmas postage stamp here, if you are interested in reading further.

 

I would like to "commission" all of our wonderful ScrapGirl artists to try their hand at creating their own holiday stamp "ATC style".  You can create a contemporary, traditional or both! You may create as many cards as you would like, just please remember to sign and date each card. Upload them to the Artist Trading Cards - Digital & Hybrid Gallery and email the full resolution copy (750 x 1050 pixels at 300 ppi) to me at: scrapgirl.bride@gmail.com

 

Some suggested collections include:

SS Embellishment Lifted Postage
Shapes Pack Frames
Theme>Holiday>Christmas

The cards are due to me by Wednesday, December 30th. I will get those back to you by the last day of December. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

 

 


November Digital Atc Swap

03 November 2015 - 07:50 AM

In her book "One Thousand Gifts", Ann Voskamp challenges readers to ... "forget the bucket list that would have us escaping our everyday lives for exotic experiences" and instead embrace and chronicle everyday blessings leading to gratitude for the life we already have. Everyday blessings as simple as the greeting of song birds as you sip your morning coffee, an unexpected note of kindness from someone, or the heart moving statement "I love the smell of your hugs, Grandma". With this being the "Month of Thanksgiving" I would like to challenge us to look for simple pleasures throughout our days and share them in the form of ATC's. Ann has produced a free pamphlet with prompts for each day. You don't have to use any of them, but I am including a thumbnail of it just in case you need some added inspiration. I'm excited to share a month of every day gifts/blessings that we can count together!

You may create as many cards as you would like, just please remember to sign and date each card. Upload them to the Artist Trading Cards - Digital & Hybrid Gallery and email the full resolution copy (750 x 1050 pixels at 300 ppi) to me at: scrapgirl.bride@gmail.com

Some suggested collections include:
Brandy Murry's Blessed Be Collection

Sherrie Piegdon's Blessed Are We Collection
Ginny Whitcomb's Autumn Hush Collection
Veronica Spriggs' Autumn Days Collection
Angie Brigg's Count the Ways Collection

 

The cards are due to me by Saturday, November 28th. I will get those back to you by the last day of November. I'm so excited to be counting with you!!


October Atc Challenge & Swap

01 October 2015 - 08:10 AM

Things that go bump in the night . . .

October is such a month of change from weather, colors, and even activities. One activity that all children look forward to is the very last day of October when they can dress up and pretend to be anything they want. With this train of thought, that old Scottish prayer came to mind - maybe you remember it - or at least part of it ...

Scottish Prayer (Traditional)
From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!

 

All in the good nature of fun, lets scrap those spiders and beasties and things that make our hearts go "bump in the night"! You may create as many cards as you would like, just please remember to sign and date each card. Upload them to the Artist Trading Cards - Digital & Hybrid Gallery and email the full resolution copy (750 x 1050 pixels at 300 ppi) to me at: scrapgirl.bride@gmail.com for the swap. The cards will be due to me by Saturday, October 31rst. I'll try to get the collection emailed back to you shortly after that.

Some suggested collections include (but there are many more of this nature in this section of the boutique)
