I received from curiousfae yesterday and I love it! She's going to wait until all her partners have received before posting pictures. Its a beautiful card and is a great start to my address book  :D Thank you for including your birthday! I'm hoping to stay on track and send out cards this year  :)

I received from curiousfae and faemystique today.  Ladies, your cards are absolutely gorgeous - I feel like I brought a water pistol to a gunfight, and hope you won't judge my ATC-virgin skills too severely.  ::)

I believe all mine received!  Here is what I sent out!

I got one, it's great!


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: kartiana on July 26, 2019 07:53:24 PM
That's a great card faemystique!

I also received a stuffed full of extras envelope from CLM and there was an ATC in there too!  :D I'll save the ATC for her to post when she's ready but I might sneak a picture of the extras later ;)

Post by: curiousfae on July 27, 2019 09:06:20 AM
The cards I sent! I did a few personal swaps with folks I didn't get paired up with so there are a couple of extras posted here. I had a blast working on my lettering. I loved searching for beautiful, whimsical quotes to use. I used some patterned paper that I loved and have been saving forever. I was inspired to start using this stuff up by Craftylittlemonkey's 'use the good stuff' movement.

Post by: craftylittlemonkey on July 27, 2019 11:44:37 AM
That last one came to me and it is just gorgeous. Love the papers girl, and your lettering is so dang good. I am always impressed with your wordy cards, they each look amazing.

 I'm always jealous of people who can hand letter so well! I loved my card... its well done and it's my favorite colors

Here is a peek at the goodies CLM sent with her card



There is so much! Thanks CLM  :D I hope you still have some supplies left for yourself? lol  :)


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: craftylittlemonkey on July 28, 2019 08:00:32 AM
Loads and loads of the stuff. It's an endless array of hoarded goodies. I have a problem, a serious problem :D.


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: kartiana on July 29, 2019 04:12:14 PM
Hahahaha all you overachievers are sending me received/sent messages for your extra partners  :D Be sure you're sending to the partners I've assigned and let me know as you receive from them as well  :) I don't mind the extra messages but those are the "official" partners I'm keeping track of  ;)

I received from Witty_Child today! So fun! I can't help but smile when I look at the address side  :) Thank you Witty_Child  :D I hope you consider joining the ongoing ATC swap too!


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: craftylittlemonkey on July 29, 2019 04:19:58 PM
Oops, I did that  :-[.

I am waiting very impatiently for the last official card I sent to get to anna.wahnsinn and I do not understand what's taking so dang long. I sent her an envelop just before this one that got there in like 3 days! Argh. I am so frustrated! LOL


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: craftylittlemonkey on July 31, 2019 06:04:43 PM
Look at all the loot Kartiana send me!


You can see one side of her card here with the vitals covered up, I know we are all posting our own cards but this is nuthin', if you don't have yours yet let me tell you There Is A Secret On The Back And It Is SO COOL!

Inside the magic surprise fortune card thingy:


And I got a side swap card from Witty_Child that came in this awesome unikitty card, OMG, it's so cute Imma cry!



And you know what? Here are my cards because I think they've all arrived by now. I made a lot of them, lol.




I used masterboards from a recent swap, stamped my address on the reverse and hand wrote some likes and dislikes. There really is only so much you can fit on those little things, we'll have to do it again if we want more info in our collections!


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: kartiana on July 31, 2019 06:52:20 PM
Seeing all the craftylittlemonkey's lined up makes me smile from ear to ear!  :D :D :D I love them!


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: kartiana on August 01, 2019 09:00:36 AM
Uuuugh I'm tired... was updating the statuses on the front page and used "quote" instead of "modify"  :P So if you all got a tag message like I did, that's why  ::)


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: kartiana on August 01, 2019 07:33:46 PM

I received from kartiana yesterday along with some fun little extras - and I love how you "attached" your mini-bio to your ATC!  Everyone I've received from has done something totally different with their card, and I'm really enjoying all the different techniques.


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: anna.wahnsinn on August 02, 2019 09:10:31 AM
So so late, but  I actually send out my cards today. Lets hope that the postal systems are as fast as last time and the cards will only take few days each. Ladies, Im so sorry it took so long! Im also pretty certain Ive received all four of my cards and will make sure that I get the time tonight to confirm and post. Or from my phone if I have to. (Cross posting this in the July ATC thread...  ::))

I love all of the cards! I myself put my avatar pics on the address side plus an address sticker and just some allergies. The other side has lots of my favorite things.


ETA: Nope, jellybean's card is still missing, 3 down so far: craftylittlemonkey, kartiana and curiousfae.


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: anna.wahnsinn on August 02, 2019 02:19:49 PM
And as to which cards I got: the first one from curiousfae's post, the purple one about truth, which is just about perfect! I love that paper, and the hand lettering is so awesome!

Craftylittlemonkey must have realized that the hardest-to-give-up masterboard (because of the colours) I sent out was the tealish one. So that's what I got back much improved, as it should be! If you look at the third batch of eight she posted, I received the one on the far right in the top row, I love the little red heart. Again this came in a big fat envelope filled with so much extra papery goodness!

Kartiana sent a great colourful 3D/interactive cards I have been playing with and that I haven't seen on here so far. May I say my card has a tiny postage stamp, a tag that can turn in a circle like a watch hand, and on the back is a pocket with another tag. Also some ephemera again, and I got another one of those cute fortune cards, but I haven't open that one yet the old one is still good!

My daughters loved that one especially, they want to make something like that! And basically all the other ATCs I've received so far. But they sat down and started when I was at the kitchen table with my address cards, one of those is on it's way to craftylittlemonkey, I got one from each, and DH got some as well, for his birthday today.

And now I had to rearrange my ATC folder so I can find the addresses right away :)


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: kartiana on August 02, 2019 03:31:17 PM
Here are mine The tag on the front is moveable and the tag in the back is double sided and can be taken out. I did that because I had a hard time covering up the pretty double sided masterboard I made  ::) They each have a Finnish stamp because I'm part Finnish and I love my geneology  :D I was originally going to have that explained in a letter but opted for bullet points on the tag instead  ;) I used some of my favorite colors to make the cards because I figure they are supposed to represent me  :D They were a lot of fun to put together  :)





Here are the little cards and extra tag I punched out to send with the ATCs



And just for fun, here are the ATCs before I added everything  :)





Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: craftylittlemonkey on August 03, 2019 05:48:54 AM
I think that secret pocket is so ingenious, I love it!


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: Witty_Child on August 04, 2019 09:01:17 AM
It looks like everyone's received from me, so here's what I sent out:



I chose to type out my address and bio for the sake of legibility.  (I think I'm the only one who's done that, at least so far?) 



All in all, I'm pretty happy with the results, considering I would absolutely never call myself a papercrafter.

Thank you for organizing such a fun swap, kartiana!


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: kartiana on August 04, 2019 09:10:07 AM
I think you did great Witty_Child  :D Fun, creative, and serves the purpose of the swap. You get an A+  :D

Would you believe all of us at one time weren't papercrafters?  ;) I remember thinking that papercrafting wasn't for me, then I slowly started doing things with paper and now I consider it one of my favorite crafts  :) I hope you'll join the Ongoing ATC swap! It's so fun and welcoming and you can make as few as just one ATC or as many as you can cram into a month of claims (I think I've done 13 or 14 before...) It's really fun and low pressure, plus you can craft before claiming if you're lucky  ;)


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: jellybean89 on August 05, 2019 06:26:27 AM
I had my mail held while I was camping last week, so I'm really looking forward to getting a bunch of mail today!  :D

I used return address labels for my address, but I wrote out the rest (mostly because my printer needs more toner :P).


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: craftylittlemonkey on August 05, 2019 06:29:24 AM
I love your cards witty!

I stamped my address but added my actual name and of course the country we are in, Canada!

Yup, non-paper crafter here for sure. I was positively terrifed of the stuff. Now it's nearly my best friend in the crafting room, certainly the supply I use most often in any case.

I expect to see all of you in the ATC swaps from now on! Playing with paper is a great way to keep the crafty vibe going, even when you haven't got a lot of time or energy.


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: curiousfae on August 05, 2019 06:51:55 AM
i love the different ways everyone did their cards. i am a little miffed at myself though! i totally didn't grasp the idea and neglected to put any of my likes or holidays or anything on my cards. jeez! sorry about that! next time....


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: craftylittlemonkey on August 05, 2019 07:01:32 AM
Don't feel any which way about that girl, I had a moment of duh of course you should have written your bday! But we all did different things and they are all cool. I think that this swap, like the trading card swap, is a good way to collect info about your swapping buddies. There is always room for another card with more details. My collection is growing, I just shuffle people around so I can line everybody's cards up together when I get another from someone I've already got. It's starting to tell a bigger story, it's really neat.


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: kartiana on August 05, 2019 08:44:45 AM
I have no fault with anyone's card so far  :) Everyone shared different information but you have all made great cards! I love looking at them and I love having some to refer to for addressing ATC envelopes  ;) (CLM I have your claim ready to go, just need to walk it to the post box)

And I'm already starting to think of ideas for a future round two  :D


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: Witty_Child on August 06, 2019 06:11:36 PM
Awww - you ladies are just the loveliest, most supportive bunch ever!  :-*  And if there's a Round 2 in the works, I'm absolutely down for that.  (As for the ongoing swap, I'll give it some thought.  I've perused the thread, and I love some of the themes people come up with!)


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: CDEeeek on August 06, 2019 07:06:05 PM
Yay, I loved that I got the orange-y op art one from Witty_Child! I neglected to take pictures of my cards because...I seem to have confused this entire swap. So anyone who wants to just stick a thumb over my address can post pics if they want. And I think from this point on, I am sending an address card with any atc swaps, unless I've sent one to the partner already. This was a great idea!


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: kartiana on August 07, 2019 09:49:54 AM
I know I'm impatient so just bear with me  :) I don't want anything to get missed because there are a lot of cards floating around

Post by: anna.wahnsinn on August 08, 2019 03:17:38 AM
It seems my cards are all still out there, but I received my fourth card today, from jellybean89. So cute! And there was an extra CTC in there, a leftover from a previous swap. I was so confused about that 2017 card because I KNEW I had seen that little cutie building a (house? porch?) already, but didn't know where I could have gotten it. After looking through my ATC folder I even checked the Asheville lineup just in case you were there after all (that's when I started), but then I remembered I had looked at all the CTC swap galleries I could find long before signing up :D


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: anna.wahnsinn on August 08, 2019 03:21:49 AM
And I don't know about you, but in my house making ATCs can get very messy. Pictured is about 2/3 of the affected area along with 2/3 of the culprits a day or two before I finally mailed out after changing the design once more...



Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery

what adorable little helpers! i love to see pictures of little craftsters.

:D  I'm glad it made it to you! I had so many leftover CTCs, I sent them to my partners that didn't already have one.

It's a picture of me 'helping' build a swingset! Here's a scan of original photo: (https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=718631)
(there's a slide to the left & the ladder is eventually next to it on the same side. the swings end up on the side where the person taking the photo is standing. & there's a sandbox underneath me!)


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: craftylittlemonkey on August 08, 2019 02:34:18 PM
I love these photos! Anna, your girls are so dang cute. We make a giant mess with ATCs too. All things, actually, hahaha.

I am still waiting for mail, it feels like things are taking forever lately!

There's been a request for birthdays to include on our cards. I am the same day as David Bowie and Elvis Presley, in case you want to add mine to the cards I sent you :).


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: anna.wahnsinn on August 10, 2019 01:52:47 PM
Look, I got Craftster mail!



I received this colourful piece of art disguised as a postcard the other day (one of those days, waaaay back last month some time I think), and I am still very happy about it. But I had put it aside on my desk for just a second... and tonight I found it again somewhere between lots of masterboard extras while working on a swap item.

BigBangMomma sent me this one, my first piece of "random" craftster mail, thank you so much!


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: kartiana on August 12, 2019 08:44:39 AM
It is so fun to receive special mail  :D

...which gives me an idea...  ;)


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: Witty_Child on August 13, 2019 05:02:18 PM
Yahoo - I received the most splendidly collaged ATC from CDEeeek today!  She mentioned she hadn't taken pictures of her cards, so I did, and blocked out the personal information.



(If you don't want that up in any way, shape or form, let me know, and I can take it down.)

And that's a wrap for me!  :)


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: kartiana on August 13, 2019 05:14:19 PM
I love that little "hooray"  :D and the moth!!! Great card  :)


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: jellybean89 on August 13, 2019 07:02:42 PM
Here are my cards!

The images on the fronts are from a book of dinosaur jokes (the previous owner had already cut out a bunch of the jokes :P):




Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: kartiana on August 13, 2019 07:13:33 PM
Love those dinos!  :D

Just one more ATC waiting to get to CLM then this round will be over...

All the cards have been so great!!! Thank you everyone for joining! This has been an idea floating around in my brain for quite a while and it was fun to see it come to life  :D I'm thinking of round two in November-ish  :)


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: anna.wahnsinn on August 14, 2019 04:15:28 PM
Great cards! I love the dino card I got from jellybean89, it's the one painting on himself, with a polka dot back :D

Mine have all been received now too, so here's what I sent:

Front with lots of things I love (I realized forgot fabric  :o got a few more started, gonna add that...)


Back with just my two avatar pictures and address sticker plus allergy info


This is practically the first time ever I had paint dry darker instead of turn lighter.


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: kartiana on August 14, 2019 04:45:55 PM
I love the little pictures you picked Anna  :D


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: Witty_Child on August 14, 2019 04:57:39 PM
I love jellybean89's dinosaur theme, and Anna, those dragonflies are just too precious!


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: thanate on August 20, 2019 01:39:54 PM
So one of these didn't make it to craftylittlemonkey on the first round, but I hope will get to her soon in its second envelope...  But she's given me permission to post pictures anyway:





Fortunately, I laminated these before sending, so the one that spent an unauthorized few days at the back of my garden after being returned while I was on vacation survived to be resent! 


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: kartiana on August 20, 2019 01:57:05 PM
That little envelope stamp is adorable!  :D


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: craftylittlemonkey on August 20, 2019 03:22:58 PM
Mine arrived today! Silly postal workers, it likely cost them a fortune to return that letter. Look at all the lovely stamps I got, yay!


Title: Re: ATC Address Book Gallery
Post by: kartiana on August 20, 2019 03:31:38 PM
Those popsicle stamps!!!  :D :D :D

ok everyone, that's a wrap!!!! Everyone should have positive feedback (if not let me know) and this swap is done! Whew!!!  :D All 36 (official) cards have been sent and received!  :o I'm not counting the extra cards from you overachievers  ;)

Thank you ~ Thank you ~ Thank you


It's been a great swap!  :-*
