Christmas ATC's XIII

Finishing off my ATC share (over-share?!) with the beardy guy in red.  Today is his busiest day, I believe! He's paired with scraps, sequins and sewing - superb! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get a visit from the beardy guy in red tonight! Merry Christmas!

Christmas ATC's XII

Another assortment of pretties in ATC size...  I've come to the conclusion that I don't use crepe often enough... look at the ruffles - gorgeous! Thanks for stopping by and Merry Christmas!

Christmas ATC's XI

Rubber stamping, a tiny cut file, sequins, ribbon... this is a sample of my favourite things in ATC form! The garland stamp is from Skull and Cross Buns, the rest of the supplies have been rescued from the Christmas crafts box. Thanks for looking and Merry Christmas!

Christmas ATC's X

I love this ATC... can I say that about my own work?  It's the pine cones that do it for me. The background is an old scrap of ribbon. And the embellishment pine cones are a rubber stamp from Skull and Cross Buns.  Plenty of sequins, of course, because #sequinsmakeeverythingbetter Thanks for stopping by and Happy Christmas!

Christmas ATC's IX

Another ATC made with bits'n'bobs from my Christmas box.  I love that a red and white paperclip suddenly becomes a candy cane paperclip in Decemeber. And Santa's sleigh is rather cool, right? Thanks for stopping by and Merry Christmas!

Christmas ATC's VIII

Vellum, crazy sewing, sequins, a cute charm... But for me the best bit of this ATC is the snow globe.  I like to use everything.  Everything.  This is cut from some packaging!    Thanks for stopping by!  (Still to early to say Merry Christmas?)

Christmas ATC's VII

Another collection of goodies layered up, clipped together and added to a ATC base. This ATC could be taken to pieces and re-used by the recipient.  I love the thought of another crafter using the same pieces in their future art work. Thanks for stopping by - is it too early to say Merry Christmas?

Christmas ATC's VI

This ATC was assembled from left overs and embellished with sequins...  I love the way the star sequins sit in the holes in the wooden tree. Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas ATC's V

Channelling crazy sewing and stacking vintage Christmas goodies... A gorgeous crocheted star clipped on with a tree shaped clip.  This ATC could be disassembled and it's parts re-used by the recipient. Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas ATC's IV

These ATC's were assembled with a 'let's use all the shiny things' attitude! Sequins, foiled doilys, glossy accents highlighting baubles on a wooden Christmas tree button...  More sequins and a foiled flair...  It says 'jingle all the way' but it was so shiny I had trouble photographing it!! Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas ATC's III

This ATC was made with a use it up mentality (like the last one).  The bulb stickers have been in my stash for a few years and it was clear that I wasn't going to use them on a layout. I added texture with some sewing.  I am loving my machine at the moment and using coloured threads and 'fancy' stitches is my current thing. Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas ATC's II

This ATC was made using up stickers and bits'n'bobs from my Christmas box.  They are very hard to see but there are mini white pom poms stuck on in between the stars and snowflakes. Given the use it up nature I went about creating with I am pleasantly surprised with how much I like the outcome.  To me the word stickers read a bit like a found poem. Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas ATC's

 Over the next few weeks I'll be sharing a batch of ATC's I made for a Christmas swap... They all had to be wrapped up... not going to lie - that was my favourite part! This is the only swap I've joined in this season.  I usually do a couple of stocking swaps too, but I probably made the right call given that the last two to three weeks have been spent coughing and sleeping. Thanks for stopping by!
