Looks like I will start us off! 

I hit the mother lode with cards from MadHatteh!  She did 3 of my Harry Potter ABCs, my wine theme, and artist's choice.


Look at all those lovelies!  She did a great job!  Thanks MadHatteh!

This was my first time making ATC's and I didn't measure correctly at all. Oops  Lips sealed Luckily Jill was nice enough to help me out and she even sent me some precut cards and plastic holders for them to get me on the right track. I also recieved from Gozer on the same day so I had a nice mail day  Smiley


From Jill


From Gozer: Is this watercolor?!

 Yep, water color on actual water color paper for once, LOL! I bought a bunch of the precut cards in various papers from Michael's this month. With time being at a bit of a crunch it just makes it so much easier.
 Have fun, looks like Jill sent you a good start for some great cards!

I bought those, too!  I liked all the different textures in them.  I also bought a huge pack of regular sized watercolor paper that I've been cutting down into ATC size.  They are nice and thick!

i bought some too, they were bound with a spiral wire and when I measured, they were too short!  I was very surprised but the ones I bought said specifically ATC cards but they were not 2 1/2 x 3 1/2.  I've used them for other things and it may have just been that one book.  They didn't have any more.............maybe why this was one the only one left.  It might have been labeled wrong.

Hahaha! I got the ones that are spiral bound and never even noticed they are off in size! They are about an 1/8 of an inch off! Whoops! I also got some that are precut without the spiral binding. They are make by Strathmore and I like them a lot better! I didn't like the where it was torn off the tops of the others. Actually when I went back to Michaels all they had where the Strathmore kind, maybe more people noticed the sizing issue!

I bought some fabric canvas ones with sticky backs at michaels that are for ATCing that were also a little smaller.  I didn't notice it at first, but now I just add a card behind it to make up for its width. 

I don't think I ever saw the ones in the spiral note pad.  I just got the strathmore pack.

fabric canvas ones? Hmmm, even if they are the wrong size I might have to go hunting for those!
