That wood-burned utensil set is so amazing! Cheesy

IT SO IS! I've already gone out and bought a wooden spoon set to see what I can come up with... My husband has a woodburner!

Does anyone else experience a slight bit of sadness when you have to actually MAIL your precious ATC? This is my first experience with mailing ATC's so I securely nested my cards in an envelope and wished it luck on it's long voyage. 

I assume when I receive my first card in the mail, I'll feel better about parting with mine. I don't get this way in other swaps, but I've been strangely clingy with the cards I've spent hours on. I think it's the size - they're so intricate! Remind me to stay away from mailing inchies for a while. ;-)

Yeah, I get a teeny bit sad sending them away sometimes! I think to myself, now why don't I ever make ones this neat for ME? Then I want to make a duplicate, but never do... it would take away the magic... Smiley

This is just too adorable! Great job! Did you use just a sewing machine for the body?

yep, i used a sewing machine for most of it, but then had to hand-sew at the very end, as it got much too thick!!!

i think this is a great swap to participate in as well. might try to drag in some of the "old skool" papercrafters on here to do a card or two for october, as it's such a low pressure swap and the returns have all been well made!

YES, YES, YES!! Please do it! I wanted to ask but I'm way too shy! I'd love, love to see them around here! Cheesy

Sigh, I hope to someday be ranked among the "old skoolers"... Smiley

I'm in for next month. I've found this to be the easiest and funnest swap (who doesn't love getting mail? Cheesy) I'm so glad I decided to try it!

Thanks to the organizers, srsly. I may have a go at organizing down the road...until then I'll definitely still be participating.

Haha! SO true. I know I haven't had the inspiration to do any pages for the last few weeks. I've had the thought of starting another altered journal, though, as a kind of album for ATCs... Been making a ton of them lately.

I love your new page, Phizzy. I love how the HP ticketstubs are kind of like clouds on that page and the colors are really nice Cheesy

 I love it way too much! What did you use to make the 3d effect on all the glass?

Thanks soo much both of you!

Audio, you flatter me too much. Smiley

I used PLAID brand "Clear Glass Finish" #AG1744... At least that's what the label says! It came in this froofy scrapbooking kit that my mom got me in probably 2002, long before I even THOUGHT about papercrafting. (I, soon after, decided that I hated scrapbooking, but luckily I didn't chuck all the stuff) It looks like a tube of puffy paint, and I haven't seen it in any stores, though. Then again, I haven't been looking. Clear casting resin gives the same effect, but it's a pain to mix just a tiny amount and takes forever to harden... I think you could also get similar results with..like... that clear gel school glue that elmer's makes. That stuff is very water-based though, so be careful or it might wrinkle your paper...

Was that TMI? Hope I helped Cheesy
