Here is Melissa Lambert's June ATC Youtube Video Tutorial

 As usually, Melissa does another great job as she describes this month's ATC kit and makes her creation.   So proud to have her as our design team member!  I love how she made the little ON WITH the SHOW book that opens to reveal the Charlie Chaplin's film strip pieces.  Check out her inspiration in this must see video:)

Here is Melissa's ATC that she created from this month's kit.  Great job girl!!

Free June 2015 Artist Trading Card Kit of the Month - Charlie Chaplin

Here is the Artist Trading Card Kit of the Month for June 2015.  It is a black, white and gold themed kit titled, "Charlie Chaplin".  I purchased an original 1950's 8mm Blackhawk Films reissue movie film reel of one of Charlie Chaplin's movies from 1915 titled, "The Tramp".  This kit includes 2 strips of film cut from the actual movie film reel.   It also includes one of his famous quotes, "A day without laughter is a day wasted".  Please note that the quote used in this kit is not taken from the movie.  Come by the online store and get this kit placed in your order free throughout the month of June 2015.

Here is what is included in this month's kit:
1 - 2 1/2 in. x 3 1/2 in. Black Bazzill ATC card
1 - 2 1/2 in. wide cardstock paper that is black, grey and white striped
1 - 2 1/2 in. wide cardstock paper that is gold metallic embossed 
1 - cream colored cardstock paper piece that can be used to mount a ticket as a background piece.
1 - a 2 ticket strip of double-sided paper that has been cut from a 12 in. x 12 in. piece of Graphic 45's Curtain Call Collection - Applause paper.
1 - of course included is a famous image of Charlie Chaplin that is black and white.  This has been professional printed for you.  
1 - a quote of Charlie Chaplin that says, "A day without laughter is a day wasted", that has been printed on white glossy paper. 
1 - rectangular piece of gold glitter paper to be used to mount the Charlie Chaplin phrase.  
1 - miniature button in cream, light brown, brown or black all which coordinate with the kit.
1 - burlap ribbon piece that has mustaches on it, since he is famous for his mustache.  Great to use as a corner piece for the ATC.
2 - different strips of 8mm movie film taken from an actual 1950's 8mm Blackhawk Films reissue film reel of Charlie Chaplin's 1915 "The Tramp" movie.  I have made sure that the two strips are taken from 2 different parts of the movie.  I have also tried to have Charlie Chaplin in at least one of the strips.
And lastly, a clear thick ATC sleeve.
So enjoy this vintage Charlie Chaplin themed kit!
