Here is November's Free Artist Trading Card Kit of the Month

Here is a photo of the FREE November ATC kit. The theme is Ancestry. For those newbees, this ATC kit is given to customers for any order they place in the month of November. Although, I have added 3 different colors of Bazzill cardstock to the mix. Here is the list of items that you will receive in your kit: 2 - different pieces 3" x 4" cardstock, a vintage photo, a piece of 1" x 4" matching cardstock, some vintage lace, a cream/white button (they are very old, some 75 years), a clear Acrylic ATC (these are brand new; this way you get a free sample), a blank white 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" card, and lastly, a sleeve to slide your ATC into once you're done. A silver charm will also be included with every order. Don't forget too, you can always some of your own stash when creating your ATC.

So many people have asked if I was going to make a Thanksgiving FREE ATC Kit. So starting on Tuesday, Novemeber 24th, I will be giving away Thanksgiving ATC kits with all orders received through the rest of the month. On Tuesday, I will also be adding the Ancestry ATC Kit to the site. That way you can purchase this Ancestry kit, as well as see the other monthly kits that we have had available.

September's Free Artist Trading Card Kit of the Month

I know, I know, I am so late at getting this on the blog, especially since this month is almost over. I wanted to show this kit anyway for those who might wish to order them from the website.

September's kit is called, "School Days". This kit is what you will receive FREE with every order that you place this month. This kit is also available if you wish to purchase them. Here's what you'll receive:

2 - of the 3" x 4" pieces of cardstock shown

* a part of a page from a vintage children's reading book

* a piece of yellow School Days ribbon or a piece of the black ABC 123 ribbon shown

2 - primary colored mini brads (either red, yellow, blue, green or orange)

2 - vintage school images from the yourATCstore "School Days" collage sheet

* a vocabulary flash card, (word and definition), from a vintage "1000 English Flash Card Set"

1 - blank white 2 1/2 in. x 3 1/2 in. ATC

and lastly, an ATC card sleeve for your finished masterpiece.

You can also use some of your own supplies like I did when I created mine.

School Days Artist Trading Card

Here is an ATC I created from the products in the kit. I also made the "Grade 1" label with a Dymo Ultimate Label Maker. The ATC is made with a yourATCstore Acrylic Clear Artist Trading Card which will be available for sale soon! I used Alcohol Inks to dye the Acrylic ATC. I then riped the ruler cardstock and the children's reading book scrap diagonally, and glued it onto the acrylic back so the paper could be seen through the ATC. I then added the other things to the front of the ATC to finish it off.

Hopefully, I will post the free October kit so you can take a peek at it. In the meantime, Happy ATC Making!!

August Free Artist Trading Card Kit of the Month

Below is the Free August ATC Kit of the Month that you will receive with every order that you place this month. You will also receive a free charm with your order that I choose especially for you.

You will receive 2 of these sequins. These are so cute that I had to show you a close up of them!

This month's kit is called, "By the Sea". You will receive only 2 of the 3" x 4" pieces of cardstock shown, one piece of blue polka dot ribbon or a piece of the blue flowered rick rack shown, an orange piece of trim, 2 of the 4 sequins shown, one of 3 small flower brads (either silver, gold, or antique copper), one seaside image cut from the yourATCstore "Bathing Beauties" collage sheet, a By the Sea word phrase (See ATCs for example), a blank ATC, and lastly, an ATC card sleeve for your finished masterpiece. You can also use some of your own papers and/or embellishments to accent what you receive in this kit like I did in my examples below.

Here is one ATC that I created from the August kit. I also used a small piece of water cardstock that I cut with zigzag scissors.

Here is another ATC from the kit. You can see that I also used an orange raffle ticket that I had, and a silver shell charm from my personal stock that I attached with the flower brad.

Here I used everything from the kit, but accented the ATC with 2 Prima Mulberry Paper Flowers in coordinating colors.

I now have some of these kits available for purchase. Here is the link to the kit on the website:
Look for the "School Days" ATC kit coming for the month of September. Remember, you will receive one of these kits free with every order that you place.

You will also receive an ATC card base, 3 choices of cardstock pieces and a brad to attach your flower sequines.

Oh, I'm still wwoooing over Johnny Depp, and still can't believe I totally froze up when I met him!

Wednesday, April 8, 2009

Yes, this is Johnny Depp!!!!!

While on Puerto Rico we were visiting Old San Juan. It just so happens that a store owner asked me if I liked Johnny Depp. Dumb question?! He told us he will filming down the street right around the corner at the Old San Juan Hotel. He was filming his new movie, "The Rum Diary". After his filming for the day, he actually came out and greeting all of his fans. This is a photo of him shaking my hand!!! I was so frozen that I didn't say a word to him!!! Of course this was the highlight of my trip! I have more photos of him, but I don't want to bore you with those, LOL!

I missed wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I can't believe it is the 2009! I hope all of you had an enjoyable Christmas. Whether you were where it was cold and snowy, or sunny and warm, I hope that the true meaning of Christmas warmed your heart. I don't get into New Year celebrations, so I stayed home and welcomed the new year with my family. May 2009 bring you new friends, good health, and peace.
I will upload my Christmas and New Years ATCs over the the weekend.

For those bloggers who might not know, I thought I would tell you, or show you, what gets placed in every order. Every month I pick a theme and create a FREE ATC kit that would go with that month. ie. October was a Halloween kit, December was Christmas. Below is a sample of the free Artist Trading Card kit that you will get with every order in January. You will receive 2 - 3" X 4" pieces of pattern paper, a blank white ATC to use as your base. You will also receive a Vintage snowy collage picture (cut from the yourATCstore Snow Fun Collage Sheet), a few embellishments, a piece of coordinating ribbon and an ATC sleeve to place your ATC in once you have made yours. The products may vary depending on what I put together as the month goes on, but I'm sure you'll have fun with the free kit. Throughout February, customers will be receiving a Valentines/Love ATC kit. I will try and post a photo around the end of January, so you can see what will be coming with the free February kit.

Here is a close-up of 2 of the kits

Here is a photo of 8 of the kits

Here is a closeup of the patterned papers used; you will receive 2 of these.

Sending Smiles until next time....
